What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Women’s Earth Alliance (WEA) will not sell, share or trade our donors’ names or personal information with any other entity, nor send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations. This policy applies to information received by WEA both online and offline, on any platform, as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications.
WEA values the privacy of our supporters, donors and all users of this website, and is committed to protecting the contact information that you may share with us.
We have third parties perform web hosting and secure credit card processing services on our behalf. These third parties have access to your personal information only as needed to perform their services for WEA and are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of it. WEA does not collect nor maintain records of your credit card information and thus, we do not sell, trade, or release your credit card information. We will only ask for the personal information that we specifically need to process your donations, membership gifts, or ticket or merchandise orders.
By subscribing to “Get Our Updates”, users are subscribing to our e-newsletter WEAvings. We only collect your name and e-mail address for this purpose. All e-newsletter updates and appeals to members, donors and supporters who’ve subscribed to receive communications from WEA include a link to unsubscribe.
WEA does not make this e-newsletter subscription list available to any other individuals, organizations, or businesses, sell or otherwise disclose your personal information outside the organization without your explicit permission. To be removed from our mail, or e-mail communications or appeals, send an e-mail to info@womensearthalliance.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
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 (if any), 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.

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. 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.
Where we send your data
