Personal information is any information that can personally identify you. By completing the grant application process you agree to Aim for the Stars Foundation (AFTS) (we or us) using your personal information as set out in this privacy policy and disclosure of that personal information to its Board Members for reviewing and awarding grants as well as provide you with information from time to time through our websites or by us or our affiliates. If you are joining our database then we only collect your first name and email address for the purpose of sending you our newsletters and other relevant updates via email. You may choose to unsubscribe from this database at any point in time.

You agree to us disclosing your personal information if we have reason to believe that this is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against anyone damaging, injuring or interfering (intentionally or unintentionally) with our rights, property, users or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. We may also reveal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

PURPOSES OF COLLECTION

The primary purpose for us collecting information is to allow for:
* grant application process and awarding financial grants
* permission based marketing
* distribution of newsletters

Site users giving any personal information voluntarily via our website will be understood by us as giving consent to this information being viewed by us and our affiliates. Such information may be saved by us and the user may be contacted as a result.

SECURITY

We ensure that the personal information of users is secured and protected. Grant applicants personal information is stored in a database, protected by password, and accessible only to the user themselves and those employees from AFTS who require access to perform necessary responsibilities relating to the management of the grant applications and our affiliates when judging the applications. In relation to subscribers to our news and updates, we only hold their first name and email address in a secured database and the subscriber may opt out of the database at anytime.

Grant applicants can choose to access their registered information with us via our secure web server that will encrypt the data while it is transferred through the Web. Our internal servers are also protected by firewalls that are continuously monitored. Employees are also made aware of the importance of
security and confidentiality through the Company’s own policies.
