Zoe Empowers U.S. Donor Privacy Policy

Zoe Empowers is committed to donor privacy.

We respect your privacy and do not rent, sell, or exchange our mailing lists nor do we send communications on behalf of other organizations. We may disclose some personal information to select third parties in order to more effectively target our donor communications.

What does this mean?

We value your trust and assure you that we will always strive to be responsible in our management, truthful in our advertising, and cost-effective in our fundraising.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at 919-779-7272.

Zoe Empowers has been empowering orphaned and vulnerable children for more than 10 years, and we are continually working to ensure every dollar is used to its fullest for this purpose. Anything less would violate the trust we keep with you, the children, and most importantly, with God.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

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 Zoe Empowers site. The recorded IP address tells us which domain you visited from (for instance, yahoo.com), but not your email address or other private and personal information. If you wish to opt out of this type of data collection, you can disable cookies in your web browser.  Please note that disabling cookies may diminish the experience of the websites you visit, including Zoe Empowers.

We may use the information we record for any of the following purposes:

  • To help diagnose problems with our servers, and to administer this website more effectively;
  • To gather broad demographic information about what countries and domains our visitors come from and their behavior on our site;
  • For marketing and fundraising purposes, including through cross channel means such as email and direct mail communications.

In addition, this website is enabled with one or more add-on services such as Google Analytics to collect information about the use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies.

We sometimes also use third-party service providers to serve advertisements (banners, video or test ads) on our behalf across the Internet, or to implement cross-channel communications via email or direct mail. These third parties may collect non-personally identifiable information about your interaction with us. This Privacy Policy does not cover the collection methods or use of the information collected by these vendors, as they have their own privacy policies and may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). To remove yourself from some or all NAI member advertising programs, please visit the NAI opt-out page  and follow the relevant instructions. In the alternative, if you wish to opt out of this type of data collection, you can disable cookies in your web browser. Please note that disabling cookies may diminish the experience of the websites you visit, including Zoe Empowers.

In some cases, our site uses securely encrypted contribution response forms for visitors who choose to use these forms to provide information, request information, and make donations. We collect your willingly submitted contact information (such as your email address), unique identifiers, and financial information (such as a credit card type, number, and expiration date). Contact information from these response forms is used to process donations, as well as to provide receipts and other information about Zoe Empowers to our customers. The visitor’s contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. Users may readily opt out of receiving future communications; see the “opt out” and “modifying your information” sections below. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for donations pledged.

Online Data Security

All response forms requesting confidential information (such as credit card numbers) on Zoe Empowers’s website utilize the Internet security protocol known as “Secure Sockets Layer” or “SSL.” This is a certification and encryption technology designed to make using your credit card as safe as possible on the Internet.

Independent agencies report that, statistically speaking, using a credit card on the Internet through SSL is far safer than submitting your credit card to a clerk in the grocery store, or over an open telephone line. In fact, they report that there are no recorded instances of someone “breaking” SSL encryption and using credit card information stored therein for fraudulent purposes.

Once we receive your credit card information, it is accessible only to a small number of trusted Zoe Empowers staff who have been specially trained in processing this information.

Opt out

If you are receiving communications from us and wish to opt out of receiving future communications, if you do not see a way to do so in the communication itself, please contact us or call 1 (919) 779-7272 and we will unsubscribe you from receiving further communications from us.

 

Modifying your information

You may also change or modify information previously provided.

  1. Send us a message with your request.
  2. You can send postal mail to the following address: Zoe Empowers, PO Box. 28839, Raleigh NC 27611
  3. You can call the following telephone number: 1 (919) 779-7272

When contacting us to change your status, be sure to include any information that would help us identify you on our lists, such as complete contact information (name, postal address, telephone number, and email address).

Changes to this policy

We reserve the right to make changes to this privacy policy without advance notice.

Changes to this policy were last made on August 14, 2020.
