Our Commitment

Updated and Effective as of December 1st, 2013

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available everywhere on our website and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

The types of personal information collected at these pages are:

The Way We May Use Information

We use the information you provide only to complete a request to contact you from the management of the Seeds of South Sudan, Inc.. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that request (e.g. a third-party email management company). We work to ensure that your privacy is strictly maintained to the best of our ability with today’s technology.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with foundations and other fund-sources who request such information as part of grant applications. For example, we may tell an a foundation that X number of individuals visited our website, or that Y number were from a particular geography, but we will not willingly disclose any information that could be used to identify those individuals.

Finally, we never use, share, rent or sell the personal identification information provided to us online except as described above.

Our Commitment to Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never attempt to collect or maintain information from those we actually know are under 13 years of age, and no part of our website is structured to attract those children under 13 years of age.

You may access your personal identification information which we collected from you online by contacting us at the Seeds of South Sudan at the address information listed at the bottom of this page. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information.

You may correct factual errors in your personal identification information by sending us a request that shows error and the factual correction.

To further protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
