Privacy Policy

Effective: March 5, 2019

Who we are

We are Every Woman Treaty. Our website address is:

We have created this privacy statement to inform site visitors (“you”) of our data collection, use, and disclosure practices. This privacy statement applies to and any other website that links to this privacy statement (collectively, the “Services”). Please read this privacy statement carefully. By using the Services, you agree that your information may be collected, used, and disclosed in the ways we describe. Please do not use the Services if you do not agree with the practices described herein.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

When we use the term “personal data,” we mean information that can be used to identify you as an individual person. We may collect and use the following categories of personal data through your use of the Services:

  • Contact information shown in the comments form, such as the name, location, and email address, which we use to respond to you and answer your questions;
  • The visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection;
  • Donation information, including the content of any comments you choose to make when you make a donation;
  • Communication preferences, including marketing preferences, which we use to manage how we engage with you;
  • Responses to donor surveys, which we use to tailor our communications to you; and
  • Inquiries you make, including the content of your voice, email, text or other electronic messages, which we use to respond to your inquiries.

Information about online donors and purchasers

When you make a purchase through our online store or make a donation through the Services, you are redirected to an independent third party to process the payment or donation, as applicable. That third party collects your personal data, using its own service providers to complete the transaction, and transmits the payment or donation to us, along with your name, contact information, and other relevant details you provided in connection with the transaction. We use this information to process the transaction or account for the donation, as applicable, to communicate with and interact with you as further described below and to meet our legal obligations. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

We do not share the information you’ve given us with unaffiliated groups without your explicit permission.

Information collected automatically

We use various technologies to collect other types of data that do not directly reveal your identity (“Other Information”). If we associate Other Information with personal data, we will treat the combined information as personal data in accordance with this privacy statement.

These technologies include the following:

Logging Functionality: As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, page views and/or clickstream data. We generally only use this data for purposes such as tracking traffic patterns on the Services, security, fraud detection and protecting our rights.

Cookies and Other Data Collection Technologies: We and our affiliated companies, business partners and service providers use cookies and similar technologies to manage the Services and to collect and track information about you and your activities online over time and across different websites and social media channels. In addition, we use technologies that can collect and store your information to help us recognize you and enhance your experience on the Services. For example, the “remember me” function saves a cookie on your computer’s browser so that you can be automatically logged-in when interacting with the Services. Cookies also help us provide state- or region-specific information and relevant news that may be of the most interest to you.

Most internet browsers allow you to remove or manage cookie functions and adjust your privacy and security preferences. For information on how to do this, access the “help” menu on your internet browser, or visit

Please note, however, that disabling cookies on the Services may result in your inability to take full advantage of all the features of the Services.

Analytics: We use analytics providers such as Google Analytics to help us evaluate and measure the use and performance of the Services. To opt out of the aggregation and analysis of data collected about you on the Services by Google Analytics, visit download and install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

Additional Uses of Personal Information

In addition to the uses described above, we may use your Personal Information for the following purposes:

  • Operating our organization;
  • Contacting you to respond to your requests or inquiries;
  • Acknowledging contributions and thanking you if you choose to make a donation;
  • Conducting and supporting additional fundraising efforts;
  • Providing you with newsletters, alerts, and other information tailored to your interests;
  • Contacting you about programs or events, including fundraising events, that we believe may be of interest to you;
  • Conducting surveys, internal research, and analytics to help us understand trends and improve our services;
  • Preventing, investigating or providing notice of fraud, unlawful or criminal activity, or unauthorized access to or use of personal data, the Services or our data systems, or to meet legal obligations;
  • Investigating and resolving disputes and security issues and enforcing our terms of use and other agreements; and
  • Any other lawful, legitimate business purpose.

We may also use services provided by third parties (such as social media platforms) to serve targeted ads to you on third party platforms. We may do this by providing a hashed version of your personal data to the third party for matching purposes.


How We Share and Disclose Personal Data

We share your personal data with third parties only in ways consistent with this privacy statement.

Service Providers: We share your personal data with third party service providers who perform services on our behalf or for your benefit, such as web hosting and analytics. We use service providers to provide online payment processing services, but we do not collect or store your payment card information, bank account numbers, or other financial data sent directly to those third party payment processors.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Children’s Privacy

Our Services are not directed to, and we do not intend to or knowingly collect or solicit personal data online from children under the age of 13. We encourage parents or guardians to participate in and monitor their children’s online activity. If a child under 13 has provided personal data to us, we encourage the child’s parent or guardian to contact us to request that we remove the information from our systems. If you are under the age of 13, do not provide us with any personal data.

Updates to this Privacy Statement

We may change this privacy statement from time to time in our sole discretion. Any and all changes will be reflected on this page and we will update the effective date at the top of this page.
