MATW Project



MATW International exercises its best efforts to respect the privacy of every individual who visits our website. As such, we have developed a stringent privacy policy that reflects that respect. Your privacy is important to us, we provide you with notice and choices about the collection and use of your information. The information contained in this notice explains our online information practices.

On our website, we do not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. This means we do not require you to register or provide information to us in order to view our site. MATW International only gathers personally identifiable data—such as names, postal and email addresses, contact information, credit card information or other information—when you voluntarily submit it. This information is used solely by MATW International for internal purposes. MATW International data lists are never sold to third parties. We will only share personally identifiable information with third parties when:

  1. The person submitting the information authorises us to share it;
  2. Sharing the information is a necessary operation of the site, for instance, to process a credit card transaction/donation; or
  3. We are required to by law.

This notice applies to all information collected from or submitted to the MATW International  website located at http://www.matwprojectme.org/  and any related sub-domains.

By visiting MATW International’s website, you accept the practices described in this privacy policy.


The Information We Collect

MATW International does not automatically collect your personally identifiable information when you visit our website. We do recognise the internet service provider of visitors, as well as the domain name or IP address of the server from where you are visiting. This information is used to analyse and predict site traffic. The data we collect are totals of those visiting from a domain, not information on individual users.

We cannot recognise the personally identifiable data—such as names, postal addresses, e-mail addresses, contact information, credit card information or other information—about our visitors that would allow us to identify the particular visitors to our website.

You do not have to provide any personal information on our website unless you choose to do so. MATW International only gathers personal information—such as your name, postal and e-mail address, contact information, credit card information or other information— when you voluntarily submit it in an online form. If you make a donation online, personal information will be collected from you in order to process that donation.

How We Use Information

MATW International is the sole owner of any information collected on this site. MATW International does not sell personal information about its website users.

MATW International states unambiguously that (a) it will not sell, trade and share a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organisations; or (b) it will only share personal information once the donor has given it permission to do so.

The personal information you provide us when using our website—such as your name, postal and e-mail address, contact information, credit card information or other information—will be kept strictly confidential and used to support your customer relationship with MATW International, as well as to notify you of updated information.

If you allow us to, we will use personal information that you submit in an online form to place you on our mailing list for regular updates. If you do not wish to receive such mailings from MATW International, you will have the opportunity at any time to request removal from future mailings by contacting us or using the unsubscribe function in any of our marketing emails.

MATW International strongly adheres to anti-spam practices in its e-mail outreach. All e-mails sent on our list have an easy unsubscribe option at the bottom of each e-mail, and lists are never shared with any third parties.

Personal Information and Credit Card Security

MATW International respects and supports the safety and security of your transaction, and we take every precaution to protect your information.

Donations made on our website are secure to the fullest extent possible. We use high-grade, 128-bit encryption and the “https” security protocol through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to communicate with your browser software. SSL protects information as it is transferred through the Internet. This method is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information you send to us. Companies we work with to process credit card transactions also use high grade encryption and security protocols.

You can recognise secure website pages by checking for the secure symbol at the bottom of your browser screen. For most browsers, this symbol is either a lock or a key. When the lock symbol appears to be locked, the page is secure. When it appears to be unlocked, the page is insecure.

Additionally, all of the transactional data we collect from users is protected against unauthorised access with the use of digital certificates.

Furthermore, this site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.

Note to Parents and Minors

MATW International is concerned about the protection of online privacy for all our website users. We are particularly respectful of the privacy of our young users. We encourage parents to monitor their children’s use of the Internet and to help us protect their privacy by instructing them never to provide personal information on this website or any other without permission. We will never attempt to extract unnecessary information from you, regardless of age.

MATW International welcomes children to learn more about our organisation and participate in our volunteering opportunities. However, we encourage this to be done only with their parents’ knowledge and supervision. MATW International does not knowingly solicit data from children, nor do we knowingly market to children.

How You Can Access, Correct or Update Your Information

If you would like to request access to review, update or amend the information you have supplied in any way, feel free to contact MATW International at any time. You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that shows the error. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information. Please note, to protect your privacy and security, we will also take steps to verify your identity before providing information or making corrections.
