Ishita Sharma Foundation (ISF) is committed to the privacy of the users of its Website.

We respect your privacy and do not rent, sell, or exchange our mailing lists. We may disclose some personal information to select third parties in order to more effectively target our donor communications.

What does this mean?

We value your trust and assure you that we will always strive to be responsible in our management, truthful in our advertising, and cost-effective in our fundraising.

If you have questions or concerns, please write to us at info@mukkamaar.org.

Disclosure to Third Parties

To most efficiently use the resources you entrusted to us, we may disclose to select third parties information regarding donation history. Information of this kind is used to enable ISF to identify others like yourself interested in partnering with us to help keep girls safe. Information provided in donation history may include statistics such as total number of donations and value of donations for a set period of time. This information disclosure is done very carefully to ensure that your personal information is protected.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

As with most other Internet sites, our web servers utilize “cookies” to track a user’s activity within our site as well as record the IP address of each visitor to this site. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer. A cookie contains a unique identifying feature that allows our computer to recognize you when you return to the site. The recorded IP address tells us which domain you visited from (for instance, yahoo.com), but not your email address or other private and personal information. If you wish to opt out of this type of data collection, you can disable cookies in your web browser.  Please note that disabling cookies may diminish the experience of the websites you visit.

We may use the information we record for any of the following purposes:

  • To help diagnose problems with our servers, and to administer this website more effectively;
  • To gather broad demographic information about what countries and domains our visitors come from and their behaviour on our site;
  • For marketing and fundraising purposes, including through cross channel means such as email and direct mail communications.

In addition, this website is enabled with one or more add-on services such as Google Analytics to collect information about the use of this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google.

In some cases, our site uses securely encrypted contribution response forms for visitors who choose to use these forms to provide information, request information, and make donations. We collect your willingly submitted contact information (such as your email address), unique identifiers (in some cases, a ISF donor account number), and financial information (such as a credit card type, number, and expiration date). Contact information from these response forms is used to process donations, as well as to provide receipts and other information about ISF to our stakeholders. The visitor’s contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. Users may readily opt out of receiving future communications; see the “unsubscribe” section below. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for donations pledged. Unique identifiers (such as a ISF account number) may be collected from website visitors to assist in matching current donation information with donor history in our record systems.

Those who choose to register through various “guestbook”-type features on our site may choose to give us certain contact information (such as their email address). These features may also request optional demographic information (such as zip code, age, or income level). Unless you opt out, we may use this contact information to send you additional information about ISF and its programs. Your voluntarily provided contact information may also be used to contact you when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. You may readily opt out of receiving future communications by unsubscribing and/or writing to us.

Our volunteer/ trainer application forms/ surveys, may ask visitors for contact information (such as their email address) as well as a variety of demographic and practical questions. We may use contact data from these to send the user information about ISF. The user’s contact information may also be used to contact the visitor when necessary.

Online Data Security

All response forms requesting confidential information (such as credit card numbers) on the  www.mukkamaar.org website utilize the Internet security protocol known as “Secure Sockets Layer” or “SSL.” This is a certification and encryption technology designed to make using your credit card as safe as possible on the Internet.

This site contains links to other sites. ISF is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.

Changes to this policy

We reserve the right to make changes to this privacy policy without advance notice.

If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this website, please write to us at info@mukkamaar.org
