privacy policies and terms guiding the use of this website.
Our privacy and security statement explains how personal information, payment(s) or other information obtained through our website is collected, protected and managed by Girl Power. Respecting and protecting your privacy is of utmost importance to us.
What is the purpose of this website?
To provide you with information about Girl Power and to offer you the opportunity to help adolescent girls in need. If you register on our website, you can obtain easy access to information about a specific area of our work. The website includes features, which make it possible to share something you have seen or read with a friend or acquaintance. You can also make a donation to Girl Power on both a regular and spontaneous basis.
Where and why does Girl Power collect information on or through the website?
We do not ask you for any personal information if you are just visiting our website. However, for you to take advantage of some of our services, we will ask for some personal information. Also in order to help us continually to learn and improve our content and services, data is collected in an anonymous and aggregated manner, for example the number of visitors to certain pages or the use of such features as newsletter signups and tell-a-friend.
Some personal data such as name, address and preferences are collected when you register for the newsletter website and/or when you sign up to become a sponsor, volunteer or donate. The data you provide enables us to give you information in a personalized manner. For example if you sign-up for our electronic programs, you will receive news, stories and information about us electronically. Registration and signup are completely voluntary. Completing the optional fields is your choice.
Data such as credit card numbers or other billing information are collected in order to process a donation. It is your decision whether you would like to store these payment details with us for a longer period than it takes to process the contribution. If you do, you will not have to re-enter all your details the next time you decide to make a donation or sponsorship payment.
Does Girl Power use cookie information?
A "cookie" is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from our web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Girl Power uses cookie information in order to provide better and more personalized content and services to the visitors of this website. For example, we may use the information for tracking which areas of our website you have visited, and how frequently. We may match information obtained from cookies with other data you provided in order to develop statistics.
Please check your computer or software manual for specifics on how cookies work on your computer. It’s possible to block cookies from being loaded onto your computer. Please note, however, that blocking cookies can affect the performance of websites.
Any change to our policy concerning cookies will be communicated on our homepage and through a new version of this privacy statement.
Does Girl Power share information collected on the website with third parties?
Personal data collected is not distributed, shared, rented or sold to companies or organizations that are not a part of the Girl Power organizational structure. In the case that administrative services such as credit card processing are required from third parties, such services are acquired under the understanding that all personal information is treated confidentially and only for the purpose of Girl Power.
If compelled by law or some other regulatory authority, Girl Power may share personal information. This is also valid if we have good reason to believe that there has been an inappropriate interference with or use of our website. In such cases we maintain the right to disclose personal information as we deem appropriate, or as asked for by a legal or regulatory authority.
Aggregated, statistical and other non-personal information such as the number of visitors to our website and their use of certain features or services may be shared with third parties working with us, for example for the promotion of our website.
Our email distributor, MailChimp, includes an image in our emails to help monitor what proportion of people read them. If your email service is configured to load images automatically, or you choose to load images for our emails, then when you open the email a request is sent to their server that identifies that you have opened that email. We use these statistics to help judge the success of our emails and improve future communications.
Does Girl Power use addresses collected on the website for sending additional information through e-mails, traditional mail or by other means?
Girl Power sends you additional information by e-mail or postal delivery only when you have expressed an interest in this. On our website you can subscribe and unsubscribe to our electronic newsletter at any time, and it is also possible to request one of our offline sponsorships. These sponsorships for Girl Power are serviced by traditional postal delivery and not over the Internet.
How can I opt-out of mailing lists for the newsletter, cancel my sponsorship etc.?
You are free at any time to unsubscribe from our newsletter. Please contact us by completing the contact form on our website or writing to the e-mail address given at the bottom of this statement.
What rules apply if I "click" over to another website?
How does the Girl Power website provide security and protect confidential information?

Data on all online transactions are saved on a secure server. Several layers of built-in security, including an advanced firewall system, encryption of credit card numbers, and use of passwords, protect the collected information.
Can Girl Power change or discontinue any service or content offered?
