Your use of our Site or Services is subject to this Policy and our Terms of Service, including its applicable limitations on damages and the resolution of disputes. This Policy is incorporated by reference into the Philanthropy U Terms of Service.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU AND WHY?
We may collect information about you or from you, including about your organization, when you affirmatively provide it, from third parties, and automatically through your use of our Site or Services.
If you wish to use some of our Services, you will need to provide us with some of your personal information. For example, to register for an educational course with Philanthropy University, you may be required to provide your name, email address, a password, and some information about your employment status and organization. You may also provide additional information to us, such as information about you (your demographics, your interests, your goals) or your organization (its size, location, funding, and capacity).
We may automatically collect information about your use of our Site or Services through technologies, including but not limited to cookies and web beacons. These technologies may collect information which includes but is not limited to your domain name; your browser type and operating system; web pages you view; links you click; your IP address; the length of time you visit our Site and/or use our Services; and the referring URL, or the webpage that led you to our Site.
Currently, our systems do not recognize browser “do-not-track” requests. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies).
Disabling Cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to our Site who disable cookies will be able to browse certain areas of the Site, but some features may not function.
Clear Gifs, Pixel Tags and Other Technologies.
Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with our Site to, among other things, track the activities of Site visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about Site usage. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML emails to our customers, to help us track email response rates, identify when our emails are viewed, and track whether our emails are forwarded.
HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?
We use the information we collect from and about you for the following purposes:
WITH WHOM DO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION AND WHY?
We may share your information, including personal information and information about your organization, as follows:
Our Site and Services may contain links to third-party websites. Any access to and use of such linked websites is not governed by this Policy, but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third party websites. We are not responsible for the information practices of such third party websites.
We have implemented commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security.
You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.

WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE REGARDING USE OF MY PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We may send periodic promotional or informational emails to you. You may opt-out of such communications by following the opt-out instructions contained in the email. Please note that it may take up to 10 business days for us to process opt-out requests. If you opt-out of receiving emails about recommendations or other information we think may interest you, we may still send you emails about your account or any Services you have requested or received from us.

Global Impact currently does not have a rating with Charity Navigator. However, until May 2015 we maintained a three-star rating with this organization. The reason for the change is not due to poor performance, but rather is due to the fact that Global Impact recently changed our operating model, which changed how our financial statements are structured.
Since Charity Navigator’s methodology compares current financials to previous financials, and the comparative financial information has changed based on the new model, they cannot appropriately rate us at this time. We understand that we will regain our rating within two years when our new financial statements can be compared to a previous year.
Global Impact’s financial performance, transparency and credibility as strong as ever. Please see our BBB and other ratings for assessments of our performance.
Everyday, local civil society delivers tailored solutions with compassion, commitment and expertise within highly-disruptive environments. And yet, many of these organizations do not have access to the resources they need to thrive. Philanthropy University aims to transform the capacity of local organizations, whether they are long-established or newly-emerging, by providing greater access to the knowledge, resources and support that will enable them to do more; to extend their reach, deepen their impact and strengthen local leadership where it matters most.
Your timely donation ensures local civil society organizations in the Global South have access to world-class online courses and vibrant online communities for free.
