Collection, use and management of information

Personal information is only collected when necessary and with consent. Individuals or groups can, for instance, make an anonymous donation or enquiry. Prospective donors may visit our web site anonymously.

Personal details are required to link a donor to a project, to process and post a receipt, magazine or letter, establish periodic donations, and maintain the relationship between supporters and HADA.

Each donor is given a unique number under which personal details are kept. This number and other details are used to verify an individual’s identity when they make contact.
