Non-personally identifiable information
By accessing the Site, certain information such as Internet protocol (IP) addresses, navigation through the Site, the browser used and the time spent, along with other similar information, will be stored on our servers and on a third-party analytics software. This information is treated confidentially.
The purpose of this data collection is to understand better the preferences of the Site’s visitors and improve their experience on our pages. This information is never connected with any personal information that visitors supply to us if they register on our Site.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on the Site.
By setting a cookie, the Global Food Exchange will remember the User the next time he/she visits the Site and therefore the Global Food Exchange will not have to ask questions that the User has already answered (like address information).

Donations to the World Food Bank Foundation
IMPORTANT: The World Food Bank Foundation (WFBF) is run independently from the Global Food Exchange and any other entities under the Global Food Exchange Inc umbrella. The World Food Bank Foundation requests information from the User on its donation form. This is done through a separate site in partnership with the SYLO FOUNDATION. Here the User must provide contact information (like name and address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). These sites are not controlled by Global Food Exchange.
Correction and Updating Personal Information
A User may modify personally identifiable information (such as zip code or email address) by logging into his/her account which can be done through the top of the donation section of the WFBF Site. It cannot be done through the GFE Site.
Opting-out of GFE Newsletters and Communications
Users may elect to receive communications such as newsletters and other material from GFE. If they do, they will have the opportunity to stop receiving such communications at any time by logging into their account from the top of the donation section of the GFE Site and editing their contact preferences or by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the emails.
