Friendship Force International respects your privacy and is providing this Privacy Policy to explain how we collect information from you, how we use it and how it is stored. Please read this policy carefully.

Collection of Information

Information that you provide to us: We may collect “Personally Identifiable Information” about you (for example, your name, address, telephone number, credit card information, membership-specific information, etc.) in order to communicate with you or provide you with the services that you have requested. “Personally Identifiable Information” refers to information that you provide to us through the Internet that can be used to uniquely identify you.

Information we collect automatically: We may collect information about you and your use of our service, your interactions with us and our advertising.

Information from other sources: We may also use third-party web analytics services on our Site, such as those of Google Analytics. The analytics providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web server logs, and web beacons to help us analyze how visitors use the Site. The information collected through these means (including IP address) is disclosed to these analytics providers, who use the information to evaluate use of the Site.

We may use various technologies to collect and store information when you interact with our email campaigns, and this may include using cookies and similar tracking technologies, such as pixels and web beacons. For example, we use web beacons in the emails we send via MailChimp. When you receive and engage with an email campaign, web beacons track certain behavior such as whether the email sent through the MailChimp platform was delivered and opened and whether links within the email were clicked. They also allow us to collect information such as your IP address, browser, email client type, and other similar details. We use this information to measure the performance of our email campaigns, and to provide analytics information and enhance the effectiveness of our Services. The use of cookies and other tracking technologies via MailChimp is discussed in more detail via the following link: https://mailchimp.com/legal/cookies/
