Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is intended to inform you of the policies and procedures of The African Refugee Development Centre (“ARDC”, "us", "we", or "our") and its affiliates. We take the privacy and protection of your Personal Information (as defined below) very seriously. We may collect Personal Information from you in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy when you visit websites operated by us, including (the "Site"). 


This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Site.


“Anonymous Information” means information not associated with or linked to your Personal Information. For clarity, Anonymous Information does not permit the identification of individuals.

“Personal Information” means your contact information including, but not limited to, your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address and any other non-public information that is associated with your contact information.

“Services” means the services we offer through our Site. 

Information Collection And Use:

By visiting our Site and using any of the Services available through the Site, you expressly consent to the processing of your Personal Information according to this Privacy Policy. To the extent you provide Personal Information about a named person or entity that is not a current user of our Services, you represent that you have that person’s or entity’s consent to do so.

We collect the following Personal Information that you voluntarily submit to us:

  • When you enter any information, including Personal Information, posting or comments within the Services, we will collect such information;

  • When you respond to one of our surveys, we will collect any information contained in such survey responses;

  • When you leave us feedback or request support, we will collect any information that is contained in your feedback or support request; and

  • When you contact us by sending us an email, we will collect your email address or contact number and any information contained in the email you send us.

While using our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your name and contact details.

In general, we use Personal Information you submit to us to provide the Services to you, respond to requests you make, improve the Services, and offer you additional information, opportunities and functionality. We may also use your Personal Information to provide you with updates about the Services. None of the Personal Information we collect will be shared with third parties without your express authorization (otherwise than in accordance with this Privacy Policy).

If you provide feedback to us, we may use and disclose such feedback for any purpose, provided we will not associate such feedback with your Personal Information. We will collect any information contained in such communication and will treat any Personal Information included in such communication in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We may create Anonymous Information records from Personal Information by excluding information that makes the Personal Information personally identifiable to you. We may use this Anonymous Information to learn more about how visitors use our Websites, to analyse trends, to administer the site, to track visitor movement, and to gather general demographic information for reporting purposes, including with our partners, sponsors and donors. 


When you agree to provide Us with your Personal Information by entering your Personal Information on Our Site, you agree that we may contact you (including by telephone and email) to discuss the services we offer and to request further information from you (which you are not required to give to us). 


We may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that is related to our activities. 

Information we collect via technology:

Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.

Like many sites, we use "cookies" to collect information. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.  If you opt to disable cookies, you will still be able to access our Site, but you may not be able to use certain features of the Site. 

General Security:

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Disclosing information to third parties:

We may share Anonymous Information with our partners, sponsors, and donors. For example, we may share Anonymous Information about individual organizations where it is necessary to secure funding to ensure the continued availability of our services or to develop outreach programs with our partners. Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not disclose to or share your Personal Information with third parties, unless you ask or authorize us to do so.

We may (and you authorize us) to disclose Personal Information we collect from you if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us, (b) enforce any agreement we may have entered into with you and to enforce the Privacy Policy, or (c) protect and defend the rights or property of ARDC, other users of the Site, or third parties.

Links to outside websites:

This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected through the Site. Our Site may contain links to outside websites for your convenience, and such links do not signify our endorsement of such websites or their contents. ARDC has no control over, does not review and is not responsible for the privacy practices of or content displayed on other websites. We encourage our visitors to be aware when they leave our Site and to read the privacy policies of each and every third party website that collects information from you.

Changes To This Privacy Policy:

This Privacy Policy will remain in effect except with respect to any changes in its provisions in the future, which will be in effect immediately after being posted on this page.

We reserve the right to update or change our Privacy Policy at any time and you should check this Privacy Policy periodically. Your continued use of the Service after we post any modifications to the Privacy Policy on this page will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy.

If we make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you either through the email address you have provided us, or by placing a prominent notice on our website.
