The Destiny Trust (‘We’, ‘Us’ or ‘Our’) takes seriously the issue of protecting the privacy of everyone who visits www.destinytrust.org or who applies to join us in our work. In our interaction with donors, volunteers, members and others involved in our work, we often obtain personal information. Personal information is any information that can be used to identify or contact you such as your name, email or telephone number. Our communication with you will be mostly about providing you with an update on our work and enlisting your support for our advocacy for the causes we are committed to. We will adopt approaches that are both ethical and effective and respect the limitations you may wish to place on the use of your personal information.
Any personal information provided to us in applications will be filed securely and made available only to The Destiny Trust. We will only use your personal information to provide you with details which we feel are relevant or of interest to you as a volunteer or stakeholder in the work of The Destiny Trust.
When you access and use the Services, we automatically collect and store in server logs information from your browser or mobile device such as your IP address or unique device identifier, browser information (including referring URL), your preferences and settings, cookies and information about the content you have viewed and actions taken (e.g., search queries, ad engagement, clicks and the associated dates and times). We may also collect device-specific information when you install and use an App including your device model, operating system information, advertising ID (which is a unique, user-resettable identification number for advertising associated with a mobile device) and App version and usage information. When enabled by you, we collect precise location information provided by your mobile device, which you may disable through the device settings.
Information about your use of the Services may be used for the following purposes:
In addition, if you see a phrase such as "Powered by" or "in association with" followed by the name of a company other than us, then you are on a website hosted by a company other than us. When you use a co-branded service (a service operated with a partner), or register or otherwise provide information on a co-branded site, where applicable, we may pass the collected information back to that partner, which may include third party service providers whose services are embedded into and/or appear within the Services.
We may also include social widgets on the Sites which enable you to interact with the associated social media services, e.g., to share an article. These widgets may collect browsing data which may be received by the third party that provided the widget, and are controlled by these third parties. You may be able to manage your privacy preferences directly with the applicable social network platform.
To cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with law, we may release personal information to third parties: (1) to comply with legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; (2) when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request; or (3) in special cases, such as in response to a physical threat to you or others, to protect property or defend or assert legal rights. In addition, we may disclose personal information as described below.
If you have registered and desire to delete any of your registration information you have provided to us from our systems please contact us through the Contact provided the page of the Sites.

If you wish to inquire as to whether we maintain any of your personal information and if so, whether you wish to exercise any of those rights that are available to you with respect to such personal information, you may contact us as described on this Site.
