Your IP Address and Cookies

For each visitor to our website, our web server automatically recognises only the visitor’s IP address (e-mail addresses are not automatically recognised by our server). We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. Your IP address is used to gather broad demographic information and is then discarded. Occasionally, we may use cookies to improve content and provide easier access. This technology lets us review which parts of the site are popular and which are not, allowing us to offer future improvements to the site; however, cookies that we generate contain no identifiable information about you, any children that may visit this site, or your computer.

 

Personal Contact Information

When you are making a donation, expressing an interest in referring a wish child, or subscribing to our online newsletter, we ask you for personal contact information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address (“Information”). We will use this information to provide you with information or resources you have requested, such as information about Make-A-Wish® Foundation International and Make-A-Wish® Malaysia, a receipt, or a financial report, or we will use your information to contact you to clarify or verify other information, such as a donation you made, or a wish child that you have referred.

We will not add your name and information to any mailing lists without your prior knowledge or express permission. We will always ask or inform you before adding you to a mailing list. If we do not, you will not be added. If you have agreed to be added to one of our mailing lists, such as our e-mail newsletter list or regular mailing list, then you may receive further information from us on how you can support the organisation’s mission.

Your information is not shared with any organisation outside of Make-A-Wish® Foundation International and/or Make-A-Wish® Malaysia. We have contracts to protect your privacy with all of our agents. In some cases, when you wish to refer a child, make a donation to your country’s affiliate, or ask for country-specific information, your information may be passed on to your country’s affiliate. Your country’s affiliate will not add you to their mailing lists unless you have expressly asked to be added.

 

Access to Your Information

You may access the information you have provided to us, except where compliance with a request to such access is refused under the law, including where the burden or expense of providing access to or correcting the personal data is disproportionate to the risks to your privacy, or where rights of others may be violated.

 

Choices You Have in Relation to Your Information

Provision of your information is voluntary and you may always choose not to provide your information, but that may prevent you from being able to make a donation or subscribe to our online newsletter.

 

Other Contact Information We Collect and What We Do With It

In some instances, we ask for contact information for people other than yourself – for example, e-mail addresses of friends to whom you wish to send a copy of one of our pages or the mailing address of someone you wish to have us notify of a donation you have made. Such contact information is not added to any mailing list nor is the information shared with any other organisation.
