Additional Privacy Policy Information 

Personally Identifiable Information. The Haitian Project only collects personal information when you request our services and only uses the information collected to provide those services for you. If you choose to make a donation, you will be asked to provide contact information (such as your name and contact information) and financial information (such as your credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to process your donation. The Haitian Project handles all of this data with the utmost confidentiality.

Third Parties. Any personal information provided will not be traded, rented, sold or otherwise shared with anyone outside of The Haitian Project, nor used for reasons beyond those contemplated in this statement. From time to time, we may engage third parties to process your information on our behalf; however, none of The Haitian Project affiliates (such as our credit card company) have permission to retain, share, store or use personal information for any reason other than providing the requested service.

Neither The Haitian Project, nor our third-party affiliates acting on our behalf to help provide the services, will willfully disclose any personally identifiable information about our online users to any non-affiliated third party without first receiving the user's permission, unless required by law.

Security. To prevent unauthorized access, disclosure and improper use of your information, we have established physical, electronic, and managerial safeguards to protect the information we collect in accordance with our privacy policy.  However, no one can guarantee any data transmission over the Internet to be 100% secure.  As a result, we cannot ensure the security of any information transmitted to our website over the Internet, and The Haitian Project is not liable for the illegal acts of third parties, such as hackers.
