What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information
Action Against Hunger collects non-personally identifiable information via your IP address, most-recently visited URL, or your computer settings. Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, e-mail address, format preference (HTML vs. text), address, interests, and similar information. We may also ask for certain non-personally identifiable demographic information such as your age, household income, interests, etc., but we do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors such as credit card or social security numbers.
Action Against Hunger respects your privacy and has instituted policies intended to ensure that your personal information is handled in a safe and responsible manner. We may use this information to deliver to you information about our organization, as well as for trend analysis, pattern detection, site administration, or simply to contact you when necessary. Non-personal demographic and profile data is used to customize your experience at our website, showing you content we think you might be interested in. By visiting this website you agree that no information you submit to the site shall contain libelous or otherwise unlawful, abusive or obscene material. You are solely responsible for the content of any information you provide to Action Against Hunger.
Internet Protocol Address
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site, analyze trends, track users' movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Use of "Cookies"
All information provided to Action Against Hunger is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Action Against Hunger. You will notice that the domain name (located in your website address bar) begins with "https" on these secure pages. Information on these pages is encrypted for your security. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend's name and e-mail address. Action Against Hunger will automatically send the friend a one-time e-mail inviting them to visit the site. Action Against Hunger stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time e-mail.
You will receive e-mail updates if you have expressed an interest in receiving news updates from Action Against Hunger by registering on our website. We are committed to protecting your privacy, so your email address will never be sold, rented, or exchanged. You will be given the option to remove your name from our email list at the bottom of each email update.
Action Against Hunger sometimes exchanges its postal mailing list with select organizations whose activities might be of interest to our members. These list exchanges, which are a common practice among nonprofit organizations, are conducted solely for the purpose of enlisting new Action Against Hunger supporters. Donors are provided the opportunity to opt out of this exchange annually and may choose to opt out any time by using the Contact Us form on our website or calling +1 (877) 777-1420 x117.

We will only disclose personally identifiable information to third parties when (i) sharing the information is a necessary operation of the site (i.e. to process credit card information); and (ii) we are required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Action Against Hunger or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Action Against Hunger, the site or the visitors to the site, and/or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of visitors to the site or the public.
