Global Mentorship Initiative Privacy Policy

Effective Date: August 1, 2022

Global Mentorship Initiative (GMI) takes your privacy seriously. This notification of our privacy policy is intended to help you understand our online information security practices. The policy covers GMI’s treatment of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) that it collects when you are on the GMI website and during the course of a GMI mentorship. Please read our privacy policy carefully to understand how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information.

Information collected from the people that visit the GMI website

When registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your email address or other details to help you with your experience. We collect information from you when you register on our site, subscribe to a newsletter, fill out a form or enter information on our site.

Information collected from individual volunteers, mentors, and mentees
We use the information we collect about you to help facilitate the volunteering and mentorship matching process. If you apply to be a GMI mentor, we do not share your information with other volunteers or nonprofit organization partners.

If you apply to be a GMI mentee, it is necessary to share some of your personal information with your mentor prior to being matched. You must specifically acknowledge this and agree when you apply for a GMI mentorship.

How do we use your information?

We may use the information we collect from you when you register to send periodic emails regarding the GMI mentorship program or to follow up with you after correspondence (email, LinkedIn, or phone inquiries).

How do we protect your information?

We do not use vulnerability scanning and/or scanning to PCI standards. We only provide articles and information. We use regular Malware Scanning.

Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights. In addition, all sensitive information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. If you make a donation to GMI, no GMI employee has access to your credit card number. All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) gives parents control over what information websites can collect from their kids. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

GMI does not market to children under the age of 18 years old. Our mentorship program is specifically designed for adults over 18 years of age.
