Last updated Dec. 2022

The Ojah Scholarship Foundation is committed to the lawful, fair, and transparent collection and use of personal data. This notice is intended to help you understand how we collect and use your personal data, as well as how we share, store, and protect that data. If at any time you have questions about this notice, please let us know by contacting us at the information listed below in the section titled, “How to contact us.”

We may update this notice and any supplemental privacy notices to reflect changes in our practices and applicable law. We will post a notice of any material updates on our sites.

When this notice applies

Our sites
This notice applies to personal data we collect, including through this website, other Foundation registration or other website, mobile applications, online portals, electronic forms, surveys, interactive exhibits, and any other channel or mobile feature that we operate (collectively, “our sites”). In these instances, the Foundation is the controller responsible for your personal data.

Supplemental privacy notices
This notice may be supplemented by a supplemental privacy notice applicable to a particular interaction with us, which may be either embedded in this notice or made available to you separately. We will tell you when a supplemental privacy notice applies.

Links to third-party sites

This notice does not apply to any third-party sites that may link to, or be accessible from, our sites. We are not responsible for any of the content, features, functionality, or privacy practices of other linked sites or services. The data collection and use practices of any linked third-party site will be governed by that third party’s applicable privacy notice, statement, or policy, and its terms of use. We encourage you to read them.

What data we collect about you

Data you provide about yourself
We collect your personal data when you voluntarily provide it to us. For example, you may give us: your email address, country of residence, and areas of interest if you choose to receive newsletters, updates, or other information from us; your contact information, and any other personal data you choose to include, if you email, text, or instant message us, or contact us through our sites; and any personal data contained in, or included with, any proposal documents, feedback, comments, photos, videos, or other information you submit via online portals, forms, surveys, or interactive portions of our sites.

It is always your choice whether to provide this personal data. However, some personal data must be provided to participate in certain programs, activities, or events (such as to sign up for a newsletter, apply for a job, or register to participate in one of our events), so the decision not to provide information might limit or eliminate such functions of our sites or your ability to participate in such programs, activities, or events. Please do not disclose more personal data than is requested.

Personal data you provide about others
Do not provide personal data about others unless you are authorized or required to do so by contract or applicable law. You may provide personal data on behalf of another person if you have provided them with a copy of this notice and any applicable supplemental privacy notice, and obtained their explicit consent. We may ask you to provide evidence of that notice and consent.

Data we receive from third parties and other sources
We may receive personal data about you from other sources, including your company/organization, professional references, publicly-available sources, third-party analytics providers, and other third parties. For example, we may receive your personal data if: someone at your company/organization designates you as a contact person for that company/organization or includes information about you in proposal documents; another visitor includes it in any feedback, comments, photos, videos, or other information submitted via online portals, electronic forms, surveys, or interactive portions of our sites; or one of our employees or service providers provides or a third party acting on apparent authority provides it to us when registering you to access our facilities or our sites, apply for a job, or participate in one of our events.

Payment Processors
If you make a donation or any purchase via the sites, the transaction may be handled by our service providers or third parties responsible for processing your transaction (“Payment Processors”). Please be aware that Payment Processors have their own privacy policies and those terms will apply to you regarding how that Payment Processor handles your personal data. Depending on your donation or purchase, it may be made via the sites or you may be re-directed to a third-party site for payment. If your donation or purchase is made via the sites, in order for the Payment Processor to process your transaction, we may require payment, credit card, or other credit-related information. If you are re-directed to a third-party site for your donation or purchase, please be sure to review any linked policies provided during payment processing as they will apply to you.

Interest-based advertising
We may use third-party service providers to serve our advertisements across the Internet. These companies may use tracking technologies to collect information about your visits to our sites and other websites and your interaction with our advertising and other communications. Some advertisements may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information collected about your visits to our sites and elsewhere over time. Other companies may also use such technology to advertise on our sites.

You have the choice to tell us not to collect and use this information, and in some jurisdictions, we will only engage in interest-based advertising if you opt-in. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices concerning interest-based advertisements, visit:
