Our Policy:
The Global Medical Relief Fund uses its best efforts to respect the privacy of its online visitors. 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 our site. The Global Medical Relief Fund only gathers personally identifiable data, such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes, e- mail addresses, etc., when voluntarily submitted by a visitor. For example, personally identifiable information may be collected in order to respond to a stated desire to volunteer time to The Global Medical Relief Fund, to make a financial donation online. This information is used solely by The Global Medical Relief Fund or other entities who are involved in the operation of this site for internal purposes. Global Medical Relief Fund lists are never sold to third parties. We will only share personally identifiable information with third parties when (i) the person submitting the information authorizes us to share it; (ii) sharing the information is a necessary operation of the site, for instance, to process a credit card transaction, or (iii) we are required to by law. The Global Medical Relief Fund has no control over or responsibility for the data collection and use practices of third parties that process online donation credit card transactions.

Is Credit Card Information Secure?
We care about the safety and security of your transaction. We partnered with Network for Good who uses high grade encryption and the https security protocol to communicate with your browser software. This method is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information you send to us.

Is My Personal Information Secure?
Yes. The same high grade encryption and https security protocols used for financial transactions on our site are used in collecting personal information.

We Care About Doing It Right
In addition to maintaining privacy and security controls over information you share with us, the Global Medical Relief Fund works to accurately process your contribution information. During business hours, volunterrs are available to answer questions about your financial donation.
The Global Medical Relief Fund employs error checking procedures to make certain transactions are processed completely and accurately. As necessary, changes are made to improve our systems. And, independent external and internal audits are conducted to ensure the privacy, security and appropriate processing of your information on our site.

Note to Parents on Our Privacy Policy
The Global Medical Relief Fund welcomes children to learn more about our organization and, where appropriate, find opportunities to serve their communities through Global Medical Relief Fund training programs and volunteer activities. However, we encourage this to be done only with their parent’s knowledge and supervision. For this reason, The Global Medical Relief Fund follows the guidelines for interactive electronic media published by the Children’s Advertising Review Unit of the Better Business Bureau. Special notices urging children to get their parent’s permission before providing any personal information have been incorporated into our site.

Thank you for visiting our site. Please contact us should you have any questions about the operation of the site.
