Privacy Policy

This privacy policy identifies the ways we collect, use and protect personally identifiable information as well as your options for accessing and correcting that information.

GreenFaith is the controller of the data and we are responsible for your personal data.

Contact Details

The information that we hold about you needs to be maintained as accurately and up to date as possible, so you can inform us of any changes by email:


What personally identifiable information does GreenFaith collect?

In various places on our website, we gather email addresses and other basic contact information for the purpose of allowing people to subscribe to GreenFaith publications and register events. We also gather contact information from individuals who choose to donate to us via our website in order to process their donations, acknowledge them in a timely manner, and keep donors informed about the impact of our work.

Our website may set “cookies” for the purpose of collecting aggregate statistics about the total number of visitors to our website. We do not store any personally identifiable information in cookies.

Some of our online publications use coded hyperlinks to identify and track personally identifiable information about individuals’ interactions with our website.  We may receive data from third party analytics providers based outside the EU, advertising networks based outside the EU,  or providers of payment services.

How does GreenFaith use personally identifiable information?

GreenFaith partners with third-party service providers to host our website and other online publications. Third-party service providers are not permitted to use or share any personally identifiable information that we provide to them. GreenFaith does not share any of the personally identifiable information we collect with other outside parties, unless we have received your specific permission to do so.

GreenFaith uses personally identifiable records of people’s interactions with our online publications as a means for better understanding their interest in our work. At some point in time, this information may be used to personalize the publications and other information individuals receive from GreenFaith.

Like most website operators, our web servers create log files. These track data on Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to enable us to administer the site, analyze trends, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Server log files do not contain personally identifiable information.


Our lawful ground for processing your personal data to send marketing communications is either your consent or our legitimate interests.

Under the EU Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations, we may send you marketing communications from us if  you agreed to receive marketing communications and in each case you have not opted out of receiving such communications since.

You can request us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by using opt-out links on messages sent to you or by emailing us at

How does GreenFaith protect personally identifiable information?

GreenFaith takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and off-line.

When our website asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers), that information is encrypted and is protected in accordance with the latest Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. All of our databases are password-protected to ensure that unauthorized users cannot access sensitive data.

We have procedures in place to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach if we are legally required to.

What choices do I have in interacting with GreenFaith?

Under data protection laws you have rights in relation to your personal data that include the right to request access, correction, erasure, restriction, transfer, to object to processing, to portability of data and (where the lawful ground of processing is consent) to withdraw consent.

You can opt out of receiving communications from us. You may request access to personally identifiable information we collect about you through our electronic communications and you may request corrections to that information. For any of these requests or for more information about our privacy policies and practices, please contact us at or call us at +1-732-565-7740.
