What information is collected by Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital?

We collect personal information when you voluntarily submit it to us.

We collect personal information upon a visitor's request to subscribe to our newsletters and announcements. If a donor, or a website visitor, contact us by email or contact form on our website, they may provide us with their email address, name, and telephone number. We also collect personal information about donors in connection with their donation. For example, donors may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, PAN number, telephone numbers and credit/debit card information). We collect all information to process donations, requests, or respond to inquiries.

In addition to the personal information that you submit to us, we may collect personal information about you from reputable third parties, or automatically collect information using the following technologies:

Web Server Logs: Our web servers may collect certain information such as IP address, pages visited, time of visits, and referring website.

Cookies: ‘Cookies’ are simple text files stored by your web browser that provide a method of distinguishing among donors and visitors to the website. A "cookie" is a parcel of text sent by a server to your web browser and then sent back unchanged by the browser each time it accesses that server. Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital uses cookies for authenticating, tracking and maintaining specific information about users, such as site preferences.

How do we use information?

We collect information primarily to accept donations, complete our charitable projects, and provide you with information concerning our programs, projects, and activities. We also use information for analytical purposes, to improve our website, our donor base, our outreach, or to respond to requests for information or merchandise. We may inform you of other purposes at the time that we collect some forms of information. For example, if you apply for a job we may receive information to process your job application.

Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital does not use your data for marketing purposes.

With whom do we share information?

We do not trade, share, or sell information that you provide to us with other organizations who intend to use it only to market their products or services to you.

There may be instances in which we share your information with others. We may share your information, for example, in conjunction with your sponsorship of a specific project, as required by law, with law enforcement, to comply with legal process, to protect our legal rights, to protect the safety or security of a person, or to protect against fraud, criminal acts, or misconduct. We may also share your information with companies that provide us with services, or with a successor legal entity. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Our commitment to data security

To help 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. For example, we secure our machines with mandated encryption protocols to secure our user/company data. We also use industry accepted tools and techniques such as SSL to protect against unauthorized access to our systems. Additionally, all sensitive information is stored in secure repositories both in-house as well as secure cloud-based stores or apps.

Online Donations: Your online donations are safe and secure. Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital uses industry-standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption to protect the confidentiality of your personal information and the security of your transaction during transmission. We do not store or retain your credit/debit card information after the transaction is processed.

At your option, Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital makes available 'CCAvenue' to process donations. When you donate using the 'CCAvenue' payment gateway on the Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital web site, your personal information is subject to CCAvenue's data collection practices. For a full description, please read CCAvenue's privacy and security statements.

No data transmission over the Internet, however, is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.

All online transactions will be confirmed by a follow-up email.

Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital's goal is to forge a long-term partnership with you, and we value and appreciate the trust that accompanies your online donation. If you donate online, Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital will never sell, rent or trade this information to a third party.

Some web browsers and devices permit you to broadcast a preference that you are not "tracked" online. At this time we do not modify your experience based upon whether such a signal is broadcast.
