FHI 360 and the Use of Cookies

In general, the Site does NOT use the "cookies" that some websites use to gather and store information about your visits. Cookies are essentially tokens of information, such as preferences and passwords, which some web servers collect when you access them. That data is stored on your hard drive – not on the website's server. When you visit a "cookie" site, the server looks for its cookie on your hard drive and reads the information it stored there. Read your web browser's help files to learn more about cookies.

Credit Card Transaction Security

We are grateful for donations to help support our work and take precautions to protect Site visitors' personal information. FHI 360 has contracted with Groundspring.org to process FHI 360's online credit card donations. Groundspring.org uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt all data submitted to and from its website.

Electronic News Subscription Privacy

FHI 360 will not sell or otherwise make available to any third-party names, emails addresses, postal addresses, or other personal information from its electronic news subscription list.

Subscribers may choose to unsubscribe at any time. Unsubscribe information is located at the bottom of each electronic news update that FHI 360 sends to subscribers, as well as at Groundspring.org. Individuals who donate to FHI 360 through this Site are not automatically added to FHI 360's electronic news subscription list.

FHI 360 stores all email addresses submitted through its online sign-up form on a secure server hosted by a third party, Groundspring.org, which does not access the contents of FHI 360's email address list. FHI 360 will not sell or otherwise make available names, email addresses, postal addresses, or other information from its electronic news subscription list to any third party.
