Our Policy

MRA respects the privacy of individuals and organizations and we make every effort to respect and protect the privacy of our online visitors and donors. We do not share your e‐mail address with third parties and in fact, we do not require registration in order to provide information to about us.

MRA does not collect information that can identify individuals and/or organizations unless this is freely provided to us voluntarily and knowingly, such as when you contact us via e‐mail or send a donation.

When you send us this information, it is used for MRA’s internal purposes only and is not shared with anyone outside of our organization. This includes any information you supply when making a donation.

MRA also respects the privacy of our beneficiaries. Inasmuch as we collect personal information that can identify their health and other private details, this information is not shared to other parties without the full knowledge of the beneficiaries. MRA requests our beneficiaries to sign consent allowing us to share their pictures, stories in order to gather resources that benefits them directly or their communities at large.

How Does MRA Use This Information?

Is My Personal and Credit Card Information Secure?

Your personal and credit card information is very secure. Online donations are made through NYCharities.org which uses VeriSign to provide you with the utmost security for your most sensitive information. When you make a donation your information is protected with VeriSign’s 128‐bit encryption technology. NYCharities.org also employs different security techniques to protect your personal information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside of its organization. However, “total security” does not exist anywhere on the Internet.

How Do We Use Cookies?

Medical Relief Alliance currently does not use cookies and we have no intention of incorporating this practice in the near future. Should this policy change, we’ll make every effort of informing all our web visitors of the same. At such a time, we shall also update this section of our ‘cookie’ policy.
