The following terms and conditions describe the policies on the use of the PhJesuits.org website. By visiting www.phjesuits.org, you are accepting the practices described here.
We know that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly.
Gathering of Information
PhJesuits.org may collect various types of information from you, including, but not limited to, your IP address, domain name, web page, type of browser used, date, time and length of time spent on the website, and pages accessed while visiting the website, which we may collect to aggregate statistical information, facilitate system administration, and improve the content of the website, among other things. We may also collect your e-mail and the content of any communication sent to our webmaster, which we may use to improve response time to any inquiries regarding the website; however, we will not identify you publicly. PhJesuits.org does not currently nor does it plan to share its account list or detailed information about you with third parties.
If you complete an online donation form and share your personally identifying information, this information will be used only in relation to your donation. We will not share the information with third parties except as it pertains to the donation process. We may use your contact information to send further information about our organization or to contact you when necessary.
Sending Us an E-mail
You may also decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an electronic mail message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a web form that provides us this information. We use personally identifying information from e-mail primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your e-mail to other employees who are better able to answer your questions. We may also use your e-mail to contact you in the future about our programs that may be of interest. We want to be very clear: We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. Except as might be required by law, we do not share any information we receive with any outside parties. If you sign up for one of our e-mail lists, we’ll only send you the kinds of information you’ve requested. We won’t share your name or e-mail address with any outside parties.
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
PhJesuits.org places the highest priority on protecting information transmitted via the website. We take all commercially reasonable measures to secure and protect customer-specific information transmitted over our website.
PhJesuits.org subscribes to “The Donor Bill of Rights” created by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and the Giving Institute: Leading Consultants to Non-Profits. We reprint it here with permission from AFP:
Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To ensure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the non-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:
If you are a donor from the UNITED STATES, you should be making a donation to the Philippine Jesuit Foundation (PJF). PJF is a charitable organization under section 501(c)3 of the US Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. PJF will receive your donation in US Dollars (USD).
If you are a donor from the Philippines or from other countries aside from the United States, you should be making a donation to the Philippine Jesuit Aid Association, Inc. (PJAA). PJAA will receive your donation in Philippine Pesos (PHP). If you are using a credit card with a different currency, you can check the exchange rate of your currency on www.xe.com and enter the equivalent amount of your intended donation in Philippine Pesos.
Complete your personal information and specify the amount that you would like to donate. You can choose to donate to a specific beneficiary (e.g., the formation of Jesuit scholastics and seminarians, the care of the elderly and infirm Jesuits, the apostolic works of the Philippine Jesuits).
Submit your information. Once you confirm you are making a donation, you will be directed to the secure pages of our credit card service provider for processing. You will receive an e-mail notification confirming that your donation has been processed.
If you believe that an error has been made in connection with your online donation, contact us. We will respond within two business days and endeavour to work with you to correct any such error and, if necessary, make any refund or correction that is appropriate.
If you change your mind about donating online through PhJesuits.org for any reason, we will honor your decision as long as you request a refund (return of donation) within 14 calendar days of the date on which you made the contribution. Refunds will be issued as a credit to the credit card used for the original donation. Charges arising from the refund will be charged to you.
To request for a refund, contact us through the following:
