GX is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. This information will not be sold or rented to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. GX collects information from site visitors at several different points on this website.

The information we collect is used to improve the content of our website, to notify visitors about updates to our website, and to alert visitors about issues and opportunities. The information is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.

All personal information is stored on secure servers with password protection and accessible only using encrypted connections. Our service providers have privacy policies that also ensure they do not share, sell, or rent your information for commercial purposes and use appropriate security procedures to protect your data, including industry-standard encryption for communication and data storage. Visitors under the age of 13 (US) or 16 (EU & elsewhere), please ask your parent/guardian for their consent before submitting your personal information to this site. If we have reason to believe that someone is underage and we have collected their personal information without proper consent, we will delete that information in a reasonable period of time.

Financial Transactions

To process a charitable contribution or product purchase, it is necessary for GX to gather the donor’s name, email address, mailing address, phone, and credit card information. This data is used to verify identity and execute the financial transaction. Additionally, phone number and email address information may be used to contact visitors if there is a problem with the transaction.

GX may use service providers (such as merchant banks and ecommerce integrators) for the express purpose of conducting financial transactions. It is important to note that credit card numbers are used only at the time of the transaction, and are not stored following the conclusion of the transaction unless a transaction is selected that occurs on a regular basis. For transactions that recur, credit card information is stored in an encrypted format.

Donations to Global Exchange are refundable within 30 days upon written request. If you would like to have your donation refunded, please contact GX’s Development Department by writing to
