Privacy Policy

At World Education, we are committed to respecting the privacy of all our donors and website visitors, and protecting the information they share with us. The following privacy policy outlines the ways in which we manage and protect the information you provide us, both online and by mail.

Information Collection
World Education collects personal data, including mailing information and email addresses, when voluntarily submitted by a visitor. Our website does not recognize the domain and e-mail address of visitors automatically. If you provide your postal address by mail or online, your name and other information will be added to our mailing list. Financial and credit card information is never shared with outside organizations or individuals.

Donations by Mail
When visitors provide contact information on our donation form, the information will be used for transactions and for sending acknowledgment of the donation. Your information is added to our mailing list, and you may receive periodic mailings. If you do not wish to receive mail from us, please contact the Development Team at 617.482.9485 or For gifts made in honor or in memory of someone, World Education will not use the individual’s information for any other purposes than acknowledgment of your gift. In order to keep our fundraising costs low, we occasionally exchange donor names and addresses with other like-minded nonprofit organizations. You can, however, have your information removed from the list we share with other organizations by contacting us at the address below.

Online Donations
Online donations to World Education are processed through a third-party service, PayPal, which requests information from the visitor. This information is used for transactions and for sending receipt of donations; however, the user may choose to make an anonymous donation and his/her personal information will not be shared with World Education. PayPal uses industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption to protect personal information and never sells, trades, or rents personal information to other individuals or companies.

Email Addresses
World Education collects e-mail addresses from those who communicate with us by email or donate online. If you communicate with us by e-mail, we will register you for our quarterly electronic newsletter, eNews. World Education never sells, trades, or rents e-mail addresses to other individuals or companies.
