Privacy Policy

Gratia International is committed to protecting your privacy online. Our policy explains how we will do this.
What information do we collect?
We collect email addresses.
Registration: on some parts of the site we ask you to register, and if you do we ask for your name, email address, geographical address and other personal information. From time to time we will ask you for further information, for example if you make a purchase or enter a competition. We may also use cookies. For an explanation, see the section on cookies below.
Use of Cookies
Cookies are small files which many web sites transfer to your hard disk.
They can inform the web site what pages you visit, and your preferences, which enable web sites to provide you with a more personalized service. You can set your browser to refuse cookies, or to warn you before accepting them. We use cookies, but most parts of our site can be accessed even if your cookies are turned off. But you may find there are parts of the site which you cannot access if your cookies are turned off.
How do we use your information?
We use the information to help us understand more about how our web site is used, to improve our site, and to send you information about us and our products which we think may be of interest to you, both electronically or otherwise.
When do we share information?
We do not sell your personal information to others.
Security
All personal and credit card information is encoded using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology before being sent over the Internet. To protect your data further, your credit card information is always stored in encrypted form in a database that is away from our Web site database, so it isn't connected to the Internet. Credit card transactions are issued a digital certificate, ensuring that your data can only be read by our transaction system as long as your browser shows its secure mode symbol (such as a key or closed lock). To make the most of the security on our site, we recommend using Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6.0 or higher, which enables SSL. We also recommend setting your browser's preferences to accept cookies and enable JavaScript. We will review this policy in the light of comments we receive so please check the latest version. If you have any questions specifically about Privacy please contact us information@gratiainternational.org.
