Sahaya International recognizes and appreciates the importance of responsible use of information collected on this website. We will never sell, trade, or rent your personal information with anyone else, nor send mailings on behalf of other organizations, except in cases in which (a) we employ the use of an e-mail company to distribute our own standard communications to you, or (b) we employ the use of an online donation platform (such as Firstgiving, Paypal, or iDonate) which each have their own GDPR-compliant privacy policies, and through which you can make online donations to Sahaya International, or  (c) we employ the use of a research firm to aid us in collecting your survey responses (in which your participation in such research efforts is purely voluntary on your part).

Because Sahaya International uses commercial platforms to accept online donations (Firstgiving, Paypal, Idonate, the only personal information we received after you make an online donation is your name, address, and e-mail address, but we do never receive any credit card details. If you make a donation via Square, we only receive information on the amount, but no personal information that identifies you.
