World Vision China Foundation Limited has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. Please find the following information gathering and dissemination practices for this site: www.worldvision.org.cn
You do not have to provide any personal information on our website unless you choose to do so. Various locations within our website may invite you to provide certain contact information (e.g., name, address, telephone or fax numbers, e-mail address) and other demographic information (e.g., nationality) if you desire more information about our organisation. We may use this contact information to send you information about World Vision and its programmes. You may also be contacted when necessary. You may opt-out of receiving future communications by revisiting the form and submitting a request.
You may also provide personal information on our website if you wish to apply for employment or register as a volunteer at World Vision China Foundation Limited or another member entity in the World Vision Partnership.
World Vision China Foundation Limited assures you that the identity of all who contact us through this website is kept confidential: we do not rent, sell, or exchange our mailing lists, or otherwise disclose such information to third parties, except as may be required by law, or through voluntary cooperation with law enforcement authorities if we judge that such cooperation is necessary to avoid potential serious harm. We may also provide your contact information to other member entities in the World Vision Partnership (e.g., the World Vision entity in your home country), which will handle the information in accordance with their own privacy policies.
As with most other Internet sites, our web servers utilize “cookies” to track a user's activity within our site as well as record the IP address of each visitor to this site. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer. A cookie contains a unique identifying feature that allows our computer to recognize you when you return to the World Vision site. The recorded IP address tells us which domain you visited from (for instance, aol.com), but not your email address or other private and personal information. We use the information we record to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer this website more effectively, and to gather broad demographic information about what countries and domains our visitors hail from and their behaviors on our site.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a data file, which often includes a unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web server and is then stored on the hard drive of the device you are using to browse the website. Each website you visit can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but to protect your privacy your browser only permits a website to access cookies it has already sent to you, not cookies sent to you by other sites.
Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. Each browser is different, so check the ‘Help’ menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. Please be aware that blocking cookies may affect the functionality of the website.
We may share aggregate statistical information (e.g., the number of visitors to our website), whether gathered by our Web servers or through submissions from visitors, with third parties. These statistics do not include personal information.
This website may contain links to other sites, including links which frame the content of the other sites within the World Vision name and logo. World Vision China Foundation Limited is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other websites, even if our name and logo are still on top of the screen.
This privacy statement has been updated and is effective as of January 2014. World Vision China Foundation Limited may make changes to this privacy statement from time to time. The revised statement will be effective immediately upon posting to our website. Please check the effective date of this privacy statement to determine whether changes have been made since the last time you visited this website.
