Kodaikanal International School has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this site (www.kis.in).
Kodaikanal International School assures you that the identity of all who contact us through this website is kept confidential: we do not rent, sell, or exchange our mailing lists and we will always strive to be responsible in our management, truthful in our advertising, and cost-effective in our fund raising. We have been ministering to the poor and suffering for more than 15 years, and are continually working to ensure all money is used to its fullest for this purpose. Anything less would violate the trust we keep with you, with the children, families, and communities we serve.
We are committed to the highest standard of stewardship excellence. We will exert every effort to honour any designation of preference you have stated. In certain circumstances, where a project is overfunded or cannot be carried out in accordance with your preference, the funds will be used for similar projects approved by the Board of Directors.
As with most other Internet sites, our web servers utilize “cookies” to track a user’s activity within our site as well as record the IP address of each visitor to this site. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer. A cookie contains a unique identifying feature that allows our computer to recognize you when you return to the Kodaikanal International School site.
The recorded IP address tells us which domain you visited from (for instance, aol.com), but not your email address or other private and personal information. We use the information we record to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer this website more effectively, and to gather broad demographic information about what countries and domains our visitors hail from and their behaviour on our site.
In some cases our site uses securely encrypted contribution response forms for visitors who choose to use these forms to provide information, request information, and make donations. We collect your willingly submitted contact information (such as your email address), unique identifiers (in some cases, a Kodaikanal International School donor account number), and financial information (such as a credit card type, number, and expiration date).
Contact information from these response forms is used to process donations, provide receipts and other information about Kodaikanal International School to our customers. The visitor’s contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for donations pledged. Unique identifiers (such as a Kodaikanal International School account number) may be collected from website visitors to assist in matching current donation information with donor history in our record systems.
Those who choose to register through various “guestbook” -type features on our site may choose to give us certain contact information (such as their email address). These features may also request optional demographic information (such as zip code, age, or income level). Your voluntarily provided contact information may also be used to contact you when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions.
Our online surveys may ask visitors for contact information (such as their email address) as well as a variety of demographic and practical questions. We may use contact data from our surveys to send the user information about Kodaikanal International School. The user’s contact information may also be used to contact the visitor when necessary.
