When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Who We Share Your Data With

We may share your data with Fundamaya, our Guatemalan service provider. Fundamaya, Fundamaya Canada, Nuestros Niños, and Action Alliance International often send out newsletters with information we feel will interest you. The nonprofit organizations listed have been working in cooperation since 2019 for the benefit of the Guatemalan people in need. We provide an unsubscribe option for all correspondence.

How Long We Retain Your Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. You have the right to object to processing based on legitimate interests, direct marketing, and for purposes of research.

Where We Send Your Data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. We also use your data to process donations you have made through our credit card processor, Paypal and its affiliates, or Stripe which retain your information in their systems.

Restricting The Collection Of Your Personal Data

At some point, you might wish to restrict the use and collection of your personal data. You can achieve this by doing the following:

When you are filling the forms on the website, make sure to check if there is a box which you can leave unchecked, if you don’t want to disclose your personal information or select the anonymous donor option.

Action Alliance International, Inc. will not lease, sell or distribute your personal information to any third parties with the exception of Fundacion Familia Maya, our Guatemalan Service Provider, Fundamaya Canada, and Nuestros Ninos unless we have your permission. We will do so if the law forces us.
