Privacy Policy


International Turkey Network (we” or “us”) values its visitors’ privacy. This privacy policy summarizes what information we might collect from a registered user or other visitor (“you”), and what we will and will not do with it. Please note that this privacy policy does not govern the collection and use of information by companies that International Turkey Network does not control, nor by individuals not employed or managed by International Turkey Network.

How Information is Used

 International Turkey Network uses your information to understand your needs and provide you with information and/or service. Specifically, we use your information to update you on ministry happenings, to help you complete a transaction, and communicate back to you. Credit card numbers are used only for donation or payment processing and are not retained for other purposes. 

What we do with your personally identifiable information (“PII”)

It is always up to you whether to disclose personally identifiable information to us, although if you elect not to do so, we reserve the right not to register you as a user or provide you with any products or services. “Personally identifiable information” (“PII”) means information that can be used to identify you as an individual, such as, for example:

  • your name, company, email address, phone number, billing address, and shipping address
  • your International Turkey Network user ID and password
  • any account-preference information you provide us
  • session data for your login session, so that our computer can ‘talk’ to yours while you are logged in

If you do provide PII to us, either directly or through a business partner, we will:

  • not sell or rent it to a third party; 
  • take reasonable precautions to protect the information from accidental loss or destruction, or unauthorized access, misuse, disclosure, or alteration;
  • not use or disclose the information except:
    • as necessary to provide services or products you have ordered, such as (for example), by providing it to a carrier to deliver products you have ordered;
    • in other ways described in this privacy policy or to which you have otherwise consented;
    • in the aggregate with other information in such a way so that your identity cannot reasonably be determined (for example, statistical compilations);
    • as required by law, for example, in response to a subpoena or search warrant;
    • to outside auditors who have agreed to keep the information confidential;
    • as necessary to enforce the Privacy Policy;
    • as necessary to protect the rights, safety, or property of International Turkey Network, its users, or others; this may include (for example), exchanging information with other organizations for fraud protection and/or risk reduction.

Changing Your Information or Removing Your Name from Our Mailing List

You may change your PII at any time. It is our desire not to send unwanted communication to anyone. If you need assistance with updating your PII or removing yourself from our mailing lists, just let us know using the Contact Us information found on the Contact page.

Use of Credit Cards

Our donation services use industry-standard encryption technology to protect your credit card number from unauthorized use. You understand that we make every effort to protect your information, and you agree that we are in no way responsible for any misuse of your credit card number.

Other information we collect

In order for our computer to communicate with yours, we must collect certain non-PII data, such as your IP address. Such data is only used temporarily and not retained.

Information collected from children

We do not knowingly collect PII from children. (See the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.) Even though our website is not designed for use by children, we realize that a child may attempt to access our website.

If we discover on our own that a child is accessing our website, we will delete the information as soon as we discover it, we will not use the information for any purpose, and we will not disclose the information to third parties. You acknowledge that we do not verify the age of our users nor do we have any liability to do so. If you are a child, please seek the permission of a parent or guardian before accessing our website.
