MTW PRIVACY POLICY

Mission to the World (“MTW”) takes your privacy seriously. We want you to know how we collect, use, share, and protect your personal data.

This Privacy Policy tells you:

  1. What personal data we collect

  2. How we use your personal data

  3. How we share your personal data

  4. How we protect your personal data

  5. Your choices regarding your personal data

  6. Information specific to non-U.S. users

  7. Changes to this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies only to personal data that we collect on the website www.mtw.org (the “Site”). the “Site”).

Personal data means information that relates to you as an individually identifiable person, such as your name, email address, and mobile number. If you do not want us to handle your personal data as described in this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Site.

1. What Personal Data We Collect

a) Information You Give Us

We collect personal data that you voluntarily share with us through the Site. For example, we collect information from you when you create an account or fill out a request form on the Site.

The personal data we collect from you may include:

  • Contact information, including name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, and social network membership

  • Requests for more information, including specific inquiry information

  • Profile information, including name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, and social network membership

  • Survey responses, including your name and feedback

  • If you request to participate in MTW’s work, you might provide name, gender, email address, U.S. citizenship information, educational information, location information, church involvement information, occupational information, name and citizenship information of spouse, and specific inquiry information.

If you donate to MTW through the Site, you might provide payment information, including name, payment card number, check information, and billing address.

Please note: if you provide payment card information to the Site (e.g., credit or debit card information), MTW never stores the payment card number. The Site passes the card number via Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption to a payment processing service in exchange for a token. Only the token that is received in the exchange is stored.

b) Information We Collect Through Technology on the Site

We collect information through technology to enhance our ability to serve you. When you access and use the Site, MTW and, in some cases, our third-party service providers, collect information about how you interact with the Site. We describe below methods we use to collect information through technology.

IP Address

When you visit the Site, we may collect your device identifier, browser information, and internet protocol (IP) address. An IP address is often associated with the portal you used to enter the Internet, like your Internet service provider (ISP), company, association, or university. While an IP address may reveal your ISP or geographic area, we cannot determine your identity solely based upon your IP address. We do not link your personal data to device identifier information, browser information, and IP addresses. Where, according to local law, IP addresses and the like are considered personal data, then we treat them as such.

Do We Use Cookies?

Yes. Cookies are small files that the Site or our service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser that enables the Site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. We use cookies to help us understand how users use the Site. For example, cookies gather information about how long you spend on a web page so that we can understand what web pages are of most interest to users.

If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off cookies by adjusting your browser settings. If you turn off your cookies, some of the features on the Site may not function properly.

Analytics Service Providers

We use cookies provided by analytics service providers to assist us in better understanding our Site visitors. These cookies collect data tied to a user’s IP address, such as the length of time a user spends on a page, the pages a user visits, and the websites a user visits before and after visiting the Site. Based on this information, our analytics service providers compile aggregate data about Site traffic and Site interactions, which we use to offer better Site experiences and tools in the future. Our analytics service providers do not collect any personal data (other than IP address which may be considered personal data in some countries).

Your 'Do Not Track' Browser Setting

We do not support the Do Not Track (DNT) browser setting. DNT is a preference you can set in your browser’s settings to let the websites you visit know that you do not want the websites collecting your personal data.

c) Information Third Parties Provide About You

We may supplement the information we collect about you through the Site with records received from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you, and to offer you information that we believe may be of interest to you. For example, we use a service provider to provide us updated mailing addresses from the U.S Postal Service’s National Change of Address database. As another example, our email communications service providers provide us information about whether recipients open our emails. We also partner with advertising networks, which inform us if you click on, or otherwise interact with, our advertisements on other websites.

d) Information You Provide to A Third Party

The Site includes links from the Site to, and plug-ins (such as Twitter buttons) from, sites or applications operated by third parties (“Third-Party Sites”). MTW does not control any Third-Party Sites and is not responsible for any information they may collect. The information collection practices of a Third-Party Site are governed by its privacy policy. It is your choice to enter any Third-Party Site. We recommend that you read its privacy policy if you choose to do so.

e) Information You Provide About Third Parties

You may choose to provide us personal data about another individual. For example, if you apply to join MTW, you might provide us information about your spouse. This personal data will be handled by MTW in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You are responsible for the accuracy of such information and for ensuring that those individuals are aware of the nature of the personal data you have provided and the way in which it will be handled by MTW.

2. Purposes For Which We Use The Personal Data We Collect

We use the information we collect to serve you and improve your experience on the Site. Some examples include:

  • Allowing users to donate to missionaries and projects

3. How We Share The Personal Data We Collect

We do not sell or rent your personal data to third parties. The following are some of the ways we share your personal data:

  • Third-Party Service Providers: We will share your personal data with third-party service providers under contract with MTW to help us provide services to you. The following are some examples of the types of third-party service providers with which we share your personal data and our purpose for doing so:

    • Data Analytics: We retain third-party service providers to help us perform data analytics regarding your interactions with the Site. For example, Google Analytics may track what pages users visit on the Site and how long they stay there to determine how users use the Site.

    • Email Communications Provider: Third-party service providers assist us in sending email communications to website users and in tracking their responses.

    • Website Developer: In the course of improving and developing the Site, the website developer may handle personal information collected through the Site.

    • Donor Relations Database: The database in which we manage donor and volunteer information, some of which is collected through the Site, is also hosted by a service provider.

    • Third-party Processors: Through the Site, you transmit your payment information to a third-party payment processor.

    • Website Hosting: A third-party service provider hosts our website.

    • Legal Advice:We may disclose your personal data to an attorney in the process of obtaining legal advice.

We require these third-party service providers to provide safeguards for your personal data similar to the ones that we provide.

  • Missionaries: If you donate to a specific missionary, the missionary receives your donor information: for example, your name and the amount you donated. If you wish to remain anonymous to the missionary, you may indicate that on each gift before you submit your donation for payment processing.

  • MTW Affiliates: We have close affiliates run by MTW employees, which are also non-profits and with whom we may disclose your personal data.

  • Required Disclosures: We may be required to share personal data in a court proceeding, in response to a court order, subpoena, civil discovery request, other legal process, or as otherwise required by law.

  • Legal Compliance and Protections: We may disclose account and other personal data when we believe disclosure is necessary to comply with the law or to protect the rights, property, or safety of MTW, our users, or others. This includes exchanging personal data with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

CHILDREN'S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT COMPLIANCE

We do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. The Site, products, and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older. If you are under the age of 13, you are not authorized to use the Site.

4. How We Protect The Personal Data We Collect

The security and confidentiality of your personal data is important to us. We have technical, administrative, and physical security measures in place to protect your personal data from unauthorized access or disclosure and improper use.

For example, we use Transport Security Layer (TSL) encryption to protect the data collection forms on our Site. In addition, we restrict access to your personal data. Only employees who need the personal data to perform a specific job (for example, a candidate specialist) are granted access to personal data. Employees with access to personal data are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to close your browser after you have completed your visit to the Site.

Please note that despite our reasonable efforts, no security measure is ever perfect or impenetrable, so we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data.

 Individuals in the EEA (“EEA Individuals”) are not required by statute or by contract to provide any personal data to the Site. MTW sometimes uses EEA Individuals’ personal data submitted through the Site for automated decision-making.

With the exception of missionaries, who serve in locations all over the world, the recipients of personal data collected through the Site (listed in Section 3 above) are located in the United States or in the European Economic Area. The European Commission has not issued a determination that the United States and many of the countries in which missionaries serve ensure an adequate level of protection for personal data.

Legal Bases for Processing:

MTW processes your personal data with your consent and as required by law. In addition, MTW processes your personal data as necessary, for example, when processing your payments. MTW also processes personal data as necessary for its legitimate interests as follows:

  • Promotion and donation solicitation: Unless you opt out as described below, we use your personal data regarding your use of the Site, as necessary to provide you information about MTW’s work and to encourage donations.

  • Network and information security, fraud prevention, and reporting suspected criminal acts: In the event of fraud, a security incident, or a suspected criminal act, we would examine personal data that appeared to be linked to the incident as necessary to determine what happened, remediate, report to the authorities, and prevent a recurrence.

Subject to certain limitations, the right to data portability allows EEA Individuals to obtain from MTW, or to ask MTW to send to a third party, a digital copy of the personal data that they provided to the Site. EEA Individuals’ right to access their personal data includes their right to receive a copy of all, or a portion of, their personal data in MTW’s possession as long as MTW’s providing the personal data would not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

EEA Individuals can exercise these rights by contacting privacy@mtw.org. MTW will respond to such requests in accordance with applicable data protection law.
