Your privacy on the Internet is of utmost importance to World Fit For Children (WFFC).  This privacy statement describes WFFC’s policy concerning the gathering and sharing of visitors’ information through the WFFC web site.  It applies to all “WFFC sites” – that is, all sites within the “” domain name.  You should note that through this site you may reach or be directed to other sites that relate to WFFC, or the sites of our chapters and clubs, or the various private charities around the world whose job is to support WFFC; all these sites have their own privacy statements which are similar to this one but may vary slightly.  By visiting the WFFC website you are accepting the practices described in this policy.

What information does WFFC collect?

Normal website usage
In general, you can browse the WFFC site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.  The only information we may gather during general browsing is from standard server logs.  These may include your IP (Internet Protocol) address, domain name, browser type, operating system, and information such as the web site that referred you to us, the files you downloaded, the pages you visit, and the dates/times of those visits.

Collection of personally identifiable information
If you register for a newsletter, log on to certain WFFC sites, order a book or other merchandise, request information, provide feedback, apply for a job, join a discussion group or join an electronic mailing list, you may be asked to provide personal information such as your name, postal address, phone number and e-mail address.  This information is collected only with your knowledge and permission, and is kept in various WFFC databases.  If you are purchasing something on the web, you may be asked to provide your credit card details. 

WFFC sites with specific requirements to collect personal information may publish a privacy policy specific for that site.  In these cases, the site-specific policies will be complementary to this general WFFC privacy policy, but will give additional details for that particular use.
For certain WFFC sites, registering or supplying personal information sets a cookie.  By setting this cookie, WFFC will remember your details the next time you visit, so you don’t have to re-enter the information.  This helps us to provide you with a better service.

Joining electronic discussion groups may mean that other participants of the discussion group (including non-WFFC members) will see personal information that you have volunteered.  For open discussion groups, this information will be public.

Special note about information from children
Several sites in the WFFC domain are focused on children.  Some of these require user-specific information to be provided to WFFC.
Children should make sure their parents, or the adults who are caring for them, know they are participating in the WFFC sites and are providing this limited user information. 

What does WFFC do with the information it collects?

Normal web usage
The information gathered during general browsing of the “” domain is used to analyze trends and usage of the WFFC site and to improve the usefulness of the site.  It is not connected with any personal information.  However, if you have registered with WFFC in connection with any activity on the WFFC site, the information we collect about your normal web usage will be identifiable to you.

Personally identifiable information
WFFC may use the personal information you provide to:

- Contact you – either in response to a query or suggestion, or to mail newsletters, documents, publications, etc. to you, and we also may provide the information to the WFFC chapters and clubs so they can contact you as well;
- Manage and process your job/volunteer application;
- Confirm your purchases and registrations on the site;
- Obtain payment for purchases through the site (via credit card);
- “Remember” your online profile and preferences;
- Help you quickly find information that is relevant to you based on your interests, and help us create site contents most relevant to you;
- Undertake statistical analysis.
- Issue charitable donation receipts

What if I don’t want to provide personal information?
Providing personal information on the WFFC web site is optional.  If you choose not to provide personal information, you can still browse and use the WFFC site, but you will not be able to carry out certain actions such as purchasing items, registering for a newsletter, or applying for a placement.

Opting out and changing your information
At any time, you can cancel or modify your information by returning to the web page where you first provided the information and contact us.  Where contact details are not provided on the page, you can contact us for further information.

We do not sell or share any personally identifiable information volunteered on the WFFC site to any third party without prior consent.  We do, however, share some user information with our chapters and clubs so that the whole WFFC family can respond to your needs.  Any information provided to WFFC by users of the WFFC site is held with the utmost care and security, and will not be used in ways other than as set forth in this privacy policy, or in any site-specific policies, or in ways to which you have explicitly consented.  WFFC employs a range of techniques and security measures to protect the information maintained on our system from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. 

However, WFFC assumes no responsibility for the security of information.
The WFFC site contains link to sites external to the domain.  WFFC is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites.

Notification of changes
Changes to this privacy policy will be posted here and will be available to the public.

Thanks for your interest in sharing WFFC’s message with visitors to your website!

WFFC welcomes links from sites that share our goals of working for children's rights, meeting children's basic needs and expanding opportunities for children to reach their full potential. By adding a link you are expressing your support for these goals.

If you would like to link to WFFC's web site, we ask you to agree to the following, and contact us to let us know for our records. You may link to the homepage or to a deep content page.

A site that links to WFFC's site:

- May not contain any content which could be deemed offensive, unsuitable for children, or harmful to or exploitative of children, including content which could be considered child pornography or otherwise promoting or depicting exploitation of children for any illegal or immoral purpose.
- May link to WFFC's content but may not copy it without special permission.
- Should not embed a WFFC web page in a frame or create any border environment around WFFC content.
- Should not misrepresent its relationship with WFFC or imply that WFFC is endorsing it or its products.
- Should not use the WFFC logo without permission. Permission is normally granted only to authorized partners of WFFC, i.e. those organizations with which WFFC has an existing working relationship, which typically are NGOs, academic institutions, publishers and broadcasters, and government agencies. 
- Must, if it sells any products or services, inform WFFC and request permission to link as a commercial site.

WFFC reserves the right to disallow links at any time (e.g. if there are contents or other links in close proximity to the WFFC link that may be inappropriate from WFFC's point of view). If this is the case, the site maintainers agree to delete the link immediately.
