Our Commitment to Your Privacy

Health eVillages values the privacy of each visitor to our website. We know that your privacy is important to you and that is why we take steps to protect it. This Privacy Statement describes our practices with respect to your personal information that Health eVillages collects or receives through this site. We reserve the right to change these practices from time to time. By visiting the site and submitting personal information, you are agreeing to the practices described in this Privacy Statement.

Personal Information Collected

On this website, we offer you the opportunity to contact us and to make monetary contributions or donate a mobile device. If you use the on-site form to send us your donated cell phone, we collect your name, physical address, email address and phone number from that form. Monetary contributions can be made by credit card through a submitted form from this site or via a cell phone text, as instructed on this site. Note that both donation methods send your contribution through the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights, the Health eVillages sponsor organization. The only personal information which Health eVillages can access results from a donation through “Give by Cell,” and we notified of your name, your mobile phone number, and the last 4 digits of your credit card. The Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights has listed their contact information on the donation form on this website and you may contact them directly to inquire about their donation practices, their contractors used in the donation process, and their privacy policy with respect to your personal information. This Privacy Statement only applies to your personal information collected by Health eVillages and does not apply to third parties.

Note that neither Health eVillages, nor any third party uses “cookies” or other tracking devices on this website, so the only personal information collected is the information you voluntarily provide.

Health eVillages uses your Personal Information to send you a monthly newsletter to update you with Health eVillages news, events, and occasionally to ask for additional donations. You may opt-out of receiving communication from Health eVillages by following the “opt-out” instructions on the newsletter or by writing to our email address or physical address as provided below.

Is My Personal Information Secure?

We employ a variety of safeguards to protect the security of the personal information collected or held by Health eVillages. These include access controls, network firewalls, physical security and other measures.
