In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

Updating or deleting your information
Upon request and after proper identity verification, we will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. Some of the information we collect does not identify you personally or is not stored in an online accessible format. You may also have the right to request deletion of your personal information. Please note that such a request could be refused because your personal information is required to provide you with the products or services you requested, e.g., to process a donation or communicate with you about a donee, or that it is required by the applicable law.
You may choose to limit our use or our ability to share your information in certain circumstances.

You may, however, continue to receive e-mail communications related directly to the services and products you request online.
E-mail communications you receive from us will generally provide an unsubscribe link allowing you to opt-out of receiving future e-mail or to change your contact preferences. Please remember that even if you opt-out of receiving marketing emails, we may still send you important service related information related to your donations or services.
California Shine the Light Law
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users who are California residents to obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of third parties to whom we have disclosed personal information (if any) for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and you wish to make such a request, please send an e-mail with “California Privacy Rights” in the subject line to [email protected] or write us at: Miles4Migrants, 3629 Laurel Street, New Orleans, LA 70115.
THE GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (“GDPR”)
If you reside within the European Union (“EU”), you may be entitled to other rights under the GDPR. These rights are summarized below. We may require you to verify your identity before we respond to your requests to exercise your rights. If you are entitled to these rights, you may exercise these rights with respect to your personal data that we collect and store:
- – the right to withdraw your consent to data processing at any time (please note that this might prevent you from using certain aspects of our services);
- – the right of access your personal data;
- – the right to request a copy of your personal data;
- – the right to correct any inaccuracies in your personal data;
- – the right to erase your personal data;
- – the right to data portability, meaning to request a transfer of your personal data from us to any other person or entity as chosen by you;
- – the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data; and
- – the right to object to processing of your personal data.
You may exercise these rights free of charge. These rights will be exercisable subject to limitations as provided for by the GDPR. Any requests to exercise the above-listed rights may be made to: [email protected].
If you reside within the EU, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a Data Protection Authority about how we process your personal data at the following website: https://edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/board/members_en.
Processing EU Personal Data
In the event that your personal data is subject to the GDPR, we will only use your personal data for the original purpose for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another purpose and that purpose is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your EU personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so. We require third parties to only use your EU personal data for the specific purpose for which it was given to us and to protect the privacy of your personal data. If your personal data is no longer necessary for the legal or business purposes for which it is processed, we will generally destroy or anonymize that data.
International Transfers of Personal Data
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EU, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- – European Commission Standard Contractual Clauses: We may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission, which give personal data the same protection it has in the EU.
- – Privacy Shield. Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield, which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the EU and the U.S.
For additional information on the mechanisms used to protect your personal data, please contact our Data Protection Officer at [email protected].
OUR PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ARE NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN
You must be at least the age of majority in your place of residence to use our website. The website is not directed to or intended for use by minors. Consistent with the requirements of the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, if we learn that we received any information directly from a child under age 13 without his or her parent’s verified consent, we will use that information only to inform the child (or his or her parent or legal guardian) that he or she cannot use our websites, products and services.
California Minors: While our websites, products and services are not intended for anyone under the age of 18, if you are a California resident who is under age 18 and you are unable to remove publicly-available content that you have submitted to us, you may request removal by contacting us at [email protected]. When requesting removal, you must be specific about the information you want removed and provide us with specific information so that we can find it. We are not required to remove any content or information that: (1) federal or state law requires us or a third party to maintain; (2) was not posted by you; (3) is anonymized so that you cannot be identified; (4) you don’t follow our instructions for removing or requesting removal; or (5) you received compensation or other consideration for providing the content or information. Removal of your content or information from our website does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that content or information from our systems or the systems of our service providers. We are not required to delete the content or information posted by you; our obligations under California law are satisfied so long as we anonymize the content or information or render it invisible to other users and the public.
