Where and When We Collect Personal Information:

You will be asked to provide your personal information when making donations, signing-up for our newsletter, registering on the Children for Health website and/or in connection with other Children for Health business (whether it is via the web site, email, direct mail or telephone communications).

We Do Not Knowingly Collect Information from Children:

We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 18 or knowingly allow such persons to provide us with their personal information without parent or guardian consent. If you are under 18, do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone numbers, or email address, unless you have your parent’s or guardian’s permission.

If you believe that we might have any information from or about anyone under the age of 18, please contact us at

Information Security:

Children for Health has layered security in the systems we use and only designated employees have access to your personal information. All online transactions are done on a secure server. This means that information entered on the transaction page is encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) before transmission. On secure pages, a “closed” lock symbol will appear either at the bottom of your browser screen or in the address bar with the website address. Additionally, the website address will start “https” instead of an “http”. Donation pages are verified and transactions are processed using a merchant account.

Children for Health May Share Your Personal Information ONLY in the following circumstances

Personal information will be shared internally at Children for Health to complete your donations or purchasing transactions, to contact you about our on-going work and ways that you can further support our efforts to help educate and mobilise children.

Children for Health will not share, rent or exchange donor names and postal address with third parties. Except in the limited circumstances outlined below, Children for Health will never intentionally share your email addresses, phone numbers or financial information.

EXCEPTIONS: Children for Health reserves the right to share your personal information in certain situations: Credit Card Transactions, Electronic Fund Transfers, Payments by Check or Money Order and Online Financial Transactions. Children for Health hires third parties to provide credit card, bank, payment and information processing services and order fulfilment services. If you choose to make a donation online, by phone, through the mail or by other means or make a purchase from our website we will share your personal information with our processing service providers. We make an effort to require all third-party service-providers to hold personal information in strict confidence. While we believe these other companies are upstanding and will treat your personal information responsibly, we do not own or control them and cannot guarantee your privacy.


If we have reason to believe that there has been some inappropriate interference with or use of our website, communications, charitable services or personal or real property or if we have reason to believe that one of the Children for Health website users, donors, employees or other related parties may have been injured or may have harmed some other party, we will disclose, without notice to you, personal information as we deem appropriate or if compelled by a legal or regulatory authority.

Merger, Acquisition or other Corporate Restructure.

We will contact you first and will not transfer your personal information to a third-party successor in interest if we are involved in an acquisition, merger or other transfer of control or sale of assets.

Requesting Communications.

We share information provided by our website visitors with third parties that provide services on our behalf – for example, to send communications. These service providers are not authorised by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.

A “cookie” is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from the Children for Health web server and is stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies are used to collect non-identifying information about the user, such as Web surfing behaviour or user preferences for a specific website. Children for Health uses two different types of cookies – session-based and persistent cookies. Session-based cookies expire at the end of a browser session so once you close your browser the cookie simply terminates. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you remove them. Persistent cookies are used to provide internal website analytics. You can manually delete all cookies including persistent ones within your browser privacy settings. You can also set your browser to not accept cookies although this may prevent you from using some of the services offered by Children for Health’s website.

Website Links:

In order to provide certain services and goods at our website, we contract with other companies and individuals. These additional services and goods may include “links” to other websites from our website. Children for Health’s privacy practices may not be applicable at any third-party sites. Any time you leave the Children for Health website, we have no control regarding what information may be collected about you, nor do we control what third-parties might do with the information. For example, when you click on a merchant’s name at the Children for Health site, you will be connected with the third-party merchant’s website (even if the Children for Health name/logo is on the screen). This merchant website should have its own privacy statement applying to transactions at their website. It is important that you review any privacy policies on third-party sites carefully, BEFORE you use any services or programs offered.

Changes to Privacy Practices:

From time to time, Children for Health may revise its privacy practices to address changing technology, security measures and website functionality. We strive to provide you with timely notice of these changes. Please contact us if you have any questions about changes to our practices.
