Privacy Policy

We in the Filipino Veterans Recognition and Education Project (“FilVetREP”), a 501(c)(3) tax- exempt public charity, respect the privacy of all visitors to our website. Your privacy is important to us, and we are committed to protecting it. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect and use information about our online visitors. We recognize that you care about your information, and to this end we want you to be aware of our privacy practices.

This Privacy Policy may be changed or updated from time to time at our sole discretion. By visiting our website, you acknowledge and accept the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Our website provides a convenient way for you to learn about our organization, its people, and the various activities in which we are engaged. We collect information about our online visitors both directly from our visitors and indirectly from other companies that provide data to us. We use this information to communicate with our supporters and donors and process their transactions. We do not sell it to other organizations.

When you use our website to make a financial contribution, register for an event, sign up to volunteer, or submit an inquiry, we may ask you for your name, address, phone number(s), and other information relevant to the transaction. We will ask for standard credit card information when you make a financial donation or make a purchase.

We may obtain information about our online visitors from other sources as well. For example, we may engage vendors that provide contact information and other data. We may use this data to help us engage with people who may be interested in participating in our activities or contributing to our mission.

We may also collect non-personal information about our online visitors using “cookies,” pixels, web beacons, and other technologies that operate automatically when you visit our website. We may use this information to give our website visitors a more relevant online experience and to help us make website improvements. The information helps us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our online visitors are going, and how long they spend there. If you do not want us to collect information using cookies, you can disable this function in your browser. If you block cookies from us, however, you may not be able to see personalized content and our website may not function optimally.

We use a variety of security measures to protect your data. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to help prevent unauthorized access to, and improper use of, personally identifiable information (“PII”).

We protect the security of credit card transactions using a number of reasonable measures, such as encryption, access controls, network firewalls, and physical security. These measures help protect the credit card information that you send to our website from unlawful or fraudulent interception. When we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, those companies also use encryption and other appropriate security measures.

We recognize that no website or electronic data can ever be completely secure, but we are always working to maintain up-to-date and appropriate security mechanisms, subject to the constraints and limitations of our resources and capabilities as an all-volunteer nonprofit organization.

If you provide FilVetREP with personal information when you visit our website, we may use the information in our programs and activities. We may enter your information into one of our databases so we can contact you to obtain your input or provide answers to your inquiries, provide information about our programs and events, request donations, or provide a more personalized online experience.

FilVetREP does not sell, trade, or share our donors’ and supporters’ PII with any other entity, except as described below. We do not send mailings to our donors and supporters on behalf of other organizations unless the donor or supporter has given us specific permission to do so.

FilVetREP has vendors that assist with processing and managing donations and donor data. We give these vendors access to donor data. On occasion, we may share your information with our vendors and other partners that help us with our activities and programs. For example, we may share information with vendors that help us administer our website, manage data, etc. These vendors are bound by strict confidentiality rules and are permitted to use the information only to support our operations. We may also disclose information as required by law, for example, in response to a valid subpoena.

Our website is not designed for children, and we do not offer services of any kind to children. We do not intentionally collect personal information from people under age 13.
