Website Privacy Policy Update Notice:

Mission Aviation Fellowship’s privacy policy has been updated effective October 1, 2020. You can review MAF’s privacy policy here. Please contact maf-us@maf.org with any questions.

 

This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for information collected by Mission Aviation Fellowship (“MAF”) through maf.org or one if its subdomains (referred to as the “Site”).

OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU…

It is the policy of MAF to honestly and accurately share the challenges and situations we face in all areas of worldwide ministry. We make known these needs and potential solutions so friends can prayerfully consider sharing financially as the Lord leads and enables.

We believe motivation for all true giving comes from God as He moves in the hearts of people. Our part is to inform and provide giving opportunities without imposing undue obligation or pressure.

We assure you that your identity as a constituent is kept confidential. We will not sell or rent your name to any other organization or corporation. We will not share your information, except as disclosed in this privacy policy. We pledge to be responsible in our management, truthful in our advertising, and cost-effective in our finances.

When you make a donation, you provide MAF with personal information regarding your name, contact information, including email and street address; financial information, such as your credit card type, number and expiration date; and unique identifiers.  The personal information that you provide us at the time of donation is used to process and  complete your donation, resolve customer service issues, match your current donation with your donation history in our records, supply you with a donation receipt, and provide you with additional information and MAF publications, such as FlightWatch.

SHARING OF INFORMATION

MAF partners with third-party vendors including payment processors, cloud storage providers, marketing partners, internet service providers, and website operators to provide individuals with donation services, information and to market MAF’s ministry.  MAF only shares the information necessary for these vendors to assist in providing these services.  MAF may also disclose your personal information to additional third parties if required by law, to protect the rights, interests or property of MAF, to investigate reports of harassing, abusive, or inappropriate donor behavior, to protect against fraud or other unauthorized activities, or to respond to emergencies.

MAF is also a member of various marketing cooperatives. These partnerships allow MAF to collaborate with other co-op members to achieve common goals and promote MAF’s ministry throughout the United States.  MAF may share your non-sensitive personal information with these cooperatives.  To opt-out of the sharing of this information please contact us at maf-us@maf.org.

SECURITY

Keeping your personal information secure is as important to us as it is to you. We want you to feel safe providing MAF with credit card numbers, phone numbers, and personal addresses. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards reasonably necessary to ensure the protection of your personal information against loss, misuse, disclosure, and alteration.  We employ encryption for all sensitive portions of the Site, including online donations and all contact forms. The information you enter into any of these areas is protected with the strongest encryption supported by your browser. Our employees are educated on security protocols to ensure the safe and proper handling of your personal information. Only authorized individuals are allowed access to stored personal information, and only for the explicit uses described in this Privacy Policy.

Although we do our best to protect your personal information, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through our Site cannot be guaranteed. Please do your part in protecting your personal information against unauthorized use. We also recommend you scan your computer regularly for viruses, malware, and spyware.

By making a donation to MAF you agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your donation activities. If we learn of a security breach involving your personal information, we may attempt to notify you electronically by sending an email to you.  To withdraw your consent to receive electronic notice of a data breach, please email us at maf-us@maf.org.

ACCESS AND CONTROL OVER YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

MAF is committed to accurately processing your personal information. We have procedures to check for errors, and our systems are periodically reviewed to make sure we process your information securely and accurately. If you would like to update or make corrections to your personal information, please submit a comment form available on our Site or contact Donor Services at maf-us@maf.org.  As a non-profit organization, MAF is unable to respond to donors’ requests to delete personal information, as MAF must retain donor information in order to comply with legal obligations and for internal business purposes.
