Purposeful Africa Privacy Policy

YOUR PRIVACY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US

Our privacy policy has been developed to keep you informed of what personal information we may collect about you, what this information will be used for, with whom such information will be shared, and the security procedures we have implemented to protect your privacy.

PURPOSEFUL AFRICA DOES NOT SELL OR RENT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO ANYONE

When you subscribe for a newsletter, request information about our exciting journeys, or sign up for volunteer or internship information, register to use our forum, or initiate customer service requests, you provide us with information about yourself. We use this information to complete your request, fulfill any customer service requests and deliver our newsletter to you via email. We do not share this information with outside parties unless it is necessary to fulfill your travel arrangements. Such other parties may include, but shall not be limited to, appropriate airlines, credit card merchant services, and tour operators. We use your email address or telephone number to respond to you when you submit a question or suggestion.

If at any time you wish to be removed from our newsletter mailings, please send us an email at info@purposefulafrica.org or use the opt-out feature at the end of the newsletter that you received.

SECURITY

The importance of security for all personal information associated with our customers is of utmost concern to us. We use reasonable efforts to protect your personal information to ensure the security of any information you transmit to us. In order to protect the information stored in our systems, we have implemented security measures, including data encryption technology and firewalls.
