Boiled down, we collect personal information for one of two reasons: 1) to better communicate with you, and 2) to accept online donations. At relevant points throughout the website, we’ll ask for personal details such as your name, contact information, and credit card details, as well as demographic and professional information.
How Mercy Ships uses your information
It’s pretty simple, really. We use it the way you ask us to. If you’ve made a transaction request online, such as a donation or request for information, we will process your information for that request. Credit card information is used only for payment processing and is not retained for any other purpose. From time to time, we may also contact you about opportunities or programs we feel may be of interest to you, but we will always give you the opportunity to decline or “opt out” of receiving such notices.
To prevent unauthorized use, maintain data accuracy, and 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 online, including the use of Internet encryption software, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
All content on this site—such as text, graphics, logos, photographs, button icons, images, audio clips, digital downloads, data compilations, and software—is the sole and exclusive property of Mercy Ships, or its content suppliers, and is protected by U.S. and international copyright laws.
