Vulnerable Afghan Women Network (VAWN) is committed to protecting the privacy of our users and visitors. This Privacy Policy outlines the types of information we collect, how we use it, and the measures we take to safeguard your personal information. By using our website, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

  1. Information Collection and Use

We collect two types of information from users of our website:

a. Personal Information: This includes any information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, email address, phone number, and mailing address. We collect personal information when you voluntarily provide it to us, for example, when you sign up for our newsletter, donate, or register for an event.

b. Non-Personal Information: This includes information that cannot be used to identify you, such as your IP address, browser type, and pages viewed on our website. We use this information to improve the functionality of our website and understand how our users interact with our content.

  1. How We Use Your Information

VAWN uses your personal information to:

a. Provide requested services or information. b. Send updates and communications about our programs, events, and initiatives. c. Process donations and provide receipts. d. Respond to inquiries or feedback. e. Conduct internal research and analysis to improve our services.

We use non-personal information to analyze website usage, enhance user experience, and improve the overall functionality of our website.

  1. Information Sharing and Disclosure

VAWN does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to third parties. We may share your personal information with trusted third-party service providers who assist us in our operations, such as processing donations or sending newsletters. These service providers are contractually obligated to keep your information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which it was provided.

We may also disclose your personal information if required by law, to protect the rights or property of VAWN, or to ensure the safety of our users and the public.

  1. Data Security

We take the security of your personal information seriously and have implemented appropriate physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to protect your information from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or alteration. However, no method of transmission over the internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information.

  1. External Links

Our website may contain links to external websites operated by third parties. VAWN is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these websites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any external websites you visit.

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time to reflect changes in our practices or applicable laws. Any changes will be posted on this page, and the “Last updated” date will be revised. Your continued use of our website after any changes constitutes your acceptance of the updated Privacy Policy.
