Fight for Sight (“FFS”) is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) explains our online information gathering practices and the choices you can make about the way the information is collected and used. For your convenience, links to this Policy are provided at our home page and at other pages of our website.

Collection and Use of Your Information
FFS collects personally identifying information about you (“Your Information”), such as your name, company name, address, telephone number, email address, and credit card information, only when you give it to us voluntarily. For example, when you make an online donation through our secure online donation page, we collect your name, address, email address, phone number and credit card information and will include you on our mailing list. If your donation is in honor or in memory of someone else and you request that an acknowledgement be sent to another individual or family, we will collect the name and address of that individual or family for acknowledgment and will include that individual or family on our mailing list. We may also collect information about research areas of interest, and your education and training if you are a potential grant recipient.

FFS will use Your Information for the purposes for which you provided it and may disclose it, on an as needed basis, to third parties who perform services to maintain our website (such as website hosting, website maintenance, or processing of your donations or requests for information). We may also need to disclose Your Information to third parties if required by law or to enforce [our Terms of Use or] this Policy.

From time to time FFS may send you notices about our grant opportunities, programs, events and services or share Your Information (except for credit card information) with other organizations that we carefully select because they offer services that might interest you. If you do not want us to notify you of FFS grant opportunities, programs, events and services or if you do not wish to receive information from other organizations about their services, please notify FFS through the means and contact information listed at the bottom of this Policy.

Your Access to Your Information
FFS will use reasonable efforts to let you review Your Information and, upon your instructions, to correct inaccuracies or to delete Your Information from our databases. If you wish to review, correct or remove from our databases, or have any questions regarding, Your Information, please contact FFS through the means and contact information listed at the bottom of this Policy.

FFS strives to keep Your Information in a secure manner and to safeguard it from unauthorized access. For example, when making online donations, FFS protects your credit card information through the use of commercially reputable security and fraud prevention systems. Despite our best efforts, no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As such, you provide us with Your Information at your own risk.

Other Information About You
Other than the specific instances described in this Policy, FFS does not collect personal information about online visitors or how they use our website. In addition, FFS does not use the information-tracking devices made possible through “cookies”—small pieces of data that may be sent to your Web browser from a server and stored on your computer’s hard drive.

Links to Other Websites
FFS’s website may contain links, some temporary and some permanent, to other websites. We have no control over these other websites or their content. Except for information, programs, events and services clearly identified as being supplied by Fight for Sight, we do not in any way review, operate, or control any material, information, products or services on other websites. Be sure to read the privacy policies that govern your use of other websites before giving any personally identifying information about you. Because FFS is not responsible for the privacy or security practices of any other website, you should direct any concerns regarding privacy practices to the administrator of such other websites.

Transfer to the United States
If you are located outside the United States, please note that the information you provide to FFS will be transferred to the United States and that by providing Your Information, you consent to this transfer and storage of the data in the United States.

If you are under 18 or do not agree to abide by this Policy, you are not authorized to use the FFS website. FFS may revise this Policy at any time for any reason and will post any changes to this Policy on our website. If you continue to use the FFS website after we post a change, you are agreeing to abide by the new terms.
