Privacy & Security policy

Afrika Tikkun is committed to protecting your privacy. All information provided to us will remain confidential and protected. It will be used only as outlined below.

Afrika Tikkun typically asks for the information indicated below. However, it is your choice how much of this information you provide us with. All information is held securely, including:

  • contact information (e.g. name, address, e-mail)
  • credit card numbers or bank account details for direct debit, given to us for donations made online

Please note: in order to process your gifts on shop.afrikatikkun.org online it is a requirement that you provide certain details. This includes your name, address and Paypal/ credit card details. You will be unable to use shop.afrikatikkun.org online if you do not provide these details. Please call +27 11 325 5914 if you wish to donate without providing this information.

We collect this information in order to:

  • process donations and provide receipts
  • maintain accurate details of our supporters’ history with the organisation
  • keep our supporters informed of our work
  • assist in the cost-effective development of our marketing and fundraising activities

To ensure your privacy is protected, information from your record will not be disclosed, nor details altered, unless requested by you.

As we have a large number of supporters, at times we use external providers to assist in our mailing, receipting and/or processing of donations. We require these distributors to sign an agreement to keep your personal information confidential.

When you choose to purchase a gift for someone, we need to collect their email address to let them know. We will only use their email address for this specific purpose and will not email the gift recipient any other materials nor store it for future use.

In some areas of the website, links to other sites may be found. These sites are not controlled by Afrika Tikkun and therefore we cannot take responsibility for their content, claims of offer or privacy practices.

All supporters of Afrika Tikkun for whom we have details recorded, have the right to ask for a copy of these details at any time.
Supporters also have the right to request we update and/or alter their details at any time.
