When you are on ANERA’s web site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with ANERA alone, unless stated otherwise or required by law. ANERA may collect general information regarding web site visitors, including IP address, browser and domain information, and may also monitor and track information such as visitor usage patterns of our web site using standard site tracking software.

We are aware of and sensitive to the issue of unsolicited email (“spam”); therefore ANERA will never rent, trade or sell your email address. Please note: From time to time, ANERA does exchange our postal mailing list with similar humanitarian organizations. We never rent or sell our list. If you wish not to have your name exchanged, please let us know in writing. Simply send us a request via email to an a anera@anera.org with your exact name and mailing address.

Personally Identifiable Information

ANERA collects personal information from visitors and other supporters only when they register to join our organization, make a donation online or offline, subscribe to our e-newsletter, or otherwise participate in our online community. Our web server does not automatically recognize or collect personal information based on your email address.

Use of Information

ANERA uses the information you submit voluntarily to us to send you electronic communications such as our e-newsletter, and various printed publications or mail appeals, and to help administer and improve our web site. Please note that we use this information for internal purposes only.

The accuracy of your individual information is important to ANERA. If you have a question about or change to your personal information related to a donation, or to request that ANERA does not exchange your information with like-minded organizations, please send an email to anera@anera.org.

Protecting Personal Information

When you give ANERA personal information, we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely. ANERA uses industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving sensitive visitor data (e.g., financial information) with our site. All online donations are processed via a secure server, managed by Convio. Please view their privacy policy.

ANERA never stores your credit card information for future use. ANERA uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of any personal information on our systems, and to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information transmitted to us. Of course, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, ANERA cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.

Links to Third-Party Sites

The ANERA web site provides links to other third party web sites. While we make efforts to choose our links carefully, we cannot take responsibility for the content of linked web sites, or for the privacy policies of web sites we link to. Since we do not control those web sites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies on those web sites prior to any use.

Linking to the ANERA Web site

Generally, Internet web sites may link to ANERA web sites without seeking the permission of ANERA. However, such links must clearly identify ANERA as the source of the information displayed and preserve the integrity of the ANERA web pages without alteration.
