PRIVACY POLICY

Our commitment to privacy

Amuno Rural Hub knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate you trusting that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This Privacy Policy explains our practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by Amuno Rural Hub. It applies to donor information that we collect both online and offline.

We have updated our Privacy Policy to take into account the new requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) which means if you are a resident of the EU and your donor records reflect that address, you may be entitled to certain additional protections in accordance with GDPR.

What information is collected by Amuno Rural Hub?

We collect personal information when you voluntarily submit it to us. For example, donors may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers, and/or credit/debit card information). If a donor, or a website visitor, contacts us by email they may provide us with their email address, and name. Providing data is required in these contexts in order for us to process your donations, requests, or respond to inquiries.

In addition to the personal information that you submit to us, we may collect personal information about you from reputable third parties, or automatically collect information using the following technologies:

Web Server Logs. Our web servers may collect certain information such as IP address, pages visited, time of visits, and referring website.

Cookies. Cookies are simple text files stored by your web browser that provide a method of distinguishing between donors and visitors to the website. Amuno Rural Hub uses cookies to identify your browser as you visit pages on the Amuno Rural Hub website or sites in the Amuno Rural Hub media network. Cookies also allow Amuno Rural Hub to provide more relevant, targeted content as you travel through sites in the Amuno Rural Hub media network as appropriate.

Where do we transfer and store information?

Amuno Rural Hub is based in Uganda, and any information transmitted to us may be stored, accessed, or processed in Uganda. Residents of some other countries, including residents of the European Union, should be aware that the laws of Uganda do not offer the same protections as the laws of your home country.

How do we use the information?

We collect information primarily to accept donations, complete our charitable projects, and provide you with information concerning our programs, projects, and activities. We also use the information for internal purposes (to better understand our supporter network) and for analytical purposes (to respond to requests for information and to improve our website, donor base, and outreach). We may inform you of other purposes at the time that we collect some forms of information. For example, if you apply for a job we may collect information in order to process your job application.

To whom do we share information?

We do not trade, share, or sell information that you provide to us with other organizations who intend to use it only to market their products or services to you.

There may be instances in which we share your information with others. We may share your information, for example, in conjunction with your sponsorship of a certain project, as required by law, with law enforcement, to comply with legal process, to protect our legal rights, to protect the safety or security of a person, or to protect against fraud, criminal acts, or misconduct. We may also share your information with companies that provide us with services, or with a successor legal entity.

Our commitment to data security

To help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. For example, we secure our machines with mandated encryption protocols to secure our user/company data. We also use industry-accepted tools and techniques such as SSL. Additionally, all sensitive information is stored in secure repositories both in-house as well as secure cloud-based, AES encrypted web apps.

Your access to data, and your choices

If you would like to access the data that we received from you or make corrections to it, you may contact us at the email or mailing addresses provided at the end of this policy.

If you registered to receive communications from us and later change your mind, you may ask that your name and contact information be removed from our distribution list. You can send such a request to the email or mailing addresses at the end of this policy.

Some web browsers and devices permit you to broadcast a preference that you are not “tracked” online. At this time we do not modify your experience based on whether such a signal is broadcast.

Changes to this privacy statement.

We may modify this privacy policy from time to time. Any changes will be reflected on this website. If we make a material change to this policy and need to apply it to personal information that you provided to us before the change was made, we will attempt to contact you and obtain your consent to the change.

Communicating with us. If we need or are required to, contact you about the privacy or security of your information we may do so by telephone, email, or mail. If you have any questions, concerns, requests, or comments about privacy, you can contact us by email, telephone, or mail at:
