The reason for processing your personal data for this purpose is because of our legitimate interest in providing our current and potential child sponsors and donors with information they have requested and with electronic marketing communications that are likely to be of interest to them.
Protecting our sponsored children. We also process your personal data for the purpose of protecting the children enrolled in our program. Background checks are required for all visitors to our field agencies and sponsored children. The legal ground for processing your personal data for these purposes is Power of One Welfare Foundation’s legitimate interest in protecting the children in our program. All sponsors are screened against a Indian national sex offender registry. Registered sex offenders are not permitted to sponsor.

Enabling you to communicate with your sponsored children. We may offer services to you through the Site that enable you to contact children that you sponsor through our programs. Such communications should not be viewed as private. All such communications may be accessed and monitored by us in accordance with our Site Terms of Service, which we periodically update.

Personal data that is processed when you donate through our site
When you sponsor children or otherwise donate money, we collect and store your payment information, which may include credit and debit card data, including account number, account type and account holder name. For electronic ACH (Automated Clearing House) payments, routing number and account number (which is encrypted) will be stored.
Safeguarding your personal information is very important to us and the vendors we use to process electronic payments. The credit card processors and the banks they work with have developed PCI payment and security standards, which are called PCI Standards. We meet those PCI Standards for electronic and physical protection of personal identity information; that means we are PCI compliant. We employ electronic security tools to monitor, scan and test our systems to protect against unauthenticated electronic access to data. We use SSL encryption on all website connections; we follow strict guidelines around password protection; we use secure firewalls to prevent unauthorized outside access to our servers, which are tested annually by a third-party security vendor. In addition, we strictly restrict physical access to our servers and personal data storage areas. We also conduct comprehensive security assessments no less frequently than annually.
We use third-party electronic payment vendors to process payment card, as well as other personal data required to authenticate certain online payments when contributions are made. Those vendors are also required to comply with the PCI Standards by us and by the banks they work with.
Purposes and legal grounds:
Payment processing. When you provide donations via credit card or debit card, Power of One Welfare Foundation will transfer your payment data (e.g., payment card data, account type, account holder name) and billing details, including recurring payment schedule if applicable, to third-party electronic payment vendors (also known as payment gateways) that process electronic payment data so that you may pay for such services. For all such payments, Power of One Welfare Foundation only transfers payment data through protected servers.
