Privacy Policy

We value your privacy.

This privacy policy explains how PathLight International collects and uses the personal information you provide on our website: It also explains the choices you can make about the way your personal information is collected and how you can access and update this information.

Collection of Personal Information

We may collect personal information such as name, mailing address, email address, phone number and credit/debit card information. Providing data is necessary in order for us to process your donations, requests, or respond to inquiries.

Use of Personal Information

We collect information primarily to accept donations, complete our charitable projects, send marketing communications, and provide you with information concerning our programs and activities. We may also use information for analytical purposes, to improve our website, our outreach, or to respond to requests for information.


You may choose to stop receiving our newsletter or marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails or you can contact us at [email protected].

Information Sharing

We do not trade, share, rent, 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, 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 services to help us with our business activities. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.

Analytics and Log Files

As is true of most websites, our web servers may collect certain information such as IP address, pages visited, time of visits, and referring website. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

Cookies are simple text files stored by your web browser that provide a method of distinguishing among donors and visitors to the website. We use cookies to identify your browser as you visit pages on our website. Cookies are also used to collect general usage and volume statistical information that does not include personal information.

Links to Other Websites

Our site includes links to other websites whose privacy practices may differ from those of PathLight International. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policy of any website you visit.


The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

Transaction Security

The personal information collected when you make a contribution by credit card is kept for the purposes of tracking your order and to provide a receipt of the transaction. This information is stored on an encrypted, secure server managed by a third-party commercial credit card processing institution.

Updating or Deleting Your Personal Information

To review and update or delete your personal information, contact us at [email protected].

Notification of Privacy Policy Changes

We may update this privacy policy to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any changes we will notify you by email (sent to the email address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this site prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
