This website takes many precautions to protect our visitors’ information. When visitors submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and off-line.
When the site asks visitors to enter sensitive information, it is encrypted and protected with one of the best encryption software programs in the industry – SSL. While on a secure page, such as our application form, the lock icon located near the bottom of web browsers such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to being un-locked, or open, as occurs when visitors are just ‘surfing.’
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we make every good faith effort to protect visitor information off-line. All of our visitors’ information, not just sensitive information, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who require the information to perform a specific job are granted access to data that is personally identifiable.
If visitors have any questions about the security of our website, they may contact us via e-mail.

Global Impact respects the privacy of its online visitors and donors. At our site, we do not collect personally identifiable information from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. This means we do not require you to register or provide information to us in order to view public areas of our site. Global Impact only gathers personally identifiable data that is voluntarily submitted by the visitor, such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes and e-mail addresses.
Global Impact is the sole owner of the information collected on our website. We collect information from our visitors at several different points, and we do not sell or trade it.
Why we collect personal information from you
Your personal information is needed so that you can use the transactional areas of our website.
It is also needed so that we can contact you if you have asked us to do so or if it is necessary as part of a particular transactional process, for example in order to validate your authorized user status in relation to a transaction.
How we use your personal information
Your personal information enables us to supply the services you have requested. It will also enable us to contact you where necessary concerning any transaction you have undertaken.
We request information from the visitor on our forms. A visitor must provide contact information such as name, e-mail and address. We use this information for internal purposes only, and it is not shared with third parties.
Though we make a good faith effort to preserve visitor privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when we believe that we are legally required to do so (e.g., to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our website).
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, Global Impact, have no control over and are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our visitors to be aware when they leave our site that they should read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
From time to time, our site requests information from visitors via interactive features, such as surveys or quizzes. Participation in these features is completely voluntary and therefore the visitor has a choice of whether or not they disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and e-mail), and information on the visitor’s interests. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site and providing pertinent information to participants. Visitors’ personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties.
