The information below outlines the policies that guide FARs practices regarding the handling of donor, email subscriber, and website visitor information—including the choices you have about how your information is stored and used both online and offline.
FAR collects personal information only when you voluntarily provide it.
Users can visit the site without revealing any personal information about themselves.
FAR recognizes the importance of protecting information we may collect from visitors to our website. Our policy is to use the information we acquire from online visitors for internal purposes only, and we maintain appropriate security measures to keep this information private.
Web Server Logs, Analytics and Pixel Tracking
Our web servers may collect certain information such as IP addresses, pages visited, time of visits, and referring websites.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. FAR uses mandated encryption protocols for all financial transactions to protect personal information.
Certain sections of the FAR website use these cookies to store user information. Cookies are small files which are stored on a user's computer based on the browsing activity associated with their web browsers (Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer for example). They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a user and their website activity, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your email address.
A user can edit their web browser settings to change or delete any and all cookies that are used on the websites they visit.
If one chooses to give us personal information via the Internet for the purposes of donating funds, correspondence, subscription to email newsletters, then it is our intent to clearly communicate with the user how we will use such information and provide simple opt-out instructions.
If you provide an email address or other personal information (excluding financial information) when you visit our site, we may enter such information into one of our data bases so we can contact you to ask your input, provide information about our programs and events, and request contributions. If users tell us that they do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact, we will respect those wishes.
FAR is based in both the United States and Armenia, and any information transmitted to us may be stored, accessed, or processed in either of these countries. Residents of some other countries, including residents of the European Union, should be aware that the laws of the United States and Armenia do not necessarily offer the same protections as the laws of your home country.
FAR collects and stores personal information primarily to accept financial contributions for the sole purpose of completing our charitable mandate, including communicating the successes and challenges associated with our programs, projects, and activities.
We will not sell, share or trade our donors' names or personal information with any other non-affiliated entities.
This policy applies to all information received by FAR, both online and offline, on any Platform ("Platform" includes the FAR website and mobile applications), as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications.
To the extent any donations are processed through a third-party service provider, our donors’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation.
We have updated our privacy practices to take into account the new requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") which means if you are a resident of the EU and your donor records reflect that address, you may be entitled to certain additional protections in accordance with GDPR.
Accessing or Deleting Your Data
If a user wishes to have their FAR records released to them, corrected, or deleted they simply need to contact us at the email or mailing address provided at the end of this policy.
If we need, or are required to, contact you about the privacy or security of your information we may do so by telephone, email, or mail. If you have any questions, concerns, requests, or comments about privacy, you can contact us by email, telephone, or mail at:
