Privacy policies

Last Updated: 06/01/2024


The privacy policy defines our commitment to privacy and data protection. It explains the types of information we collect about you and what we do with that information, and also summarizes the steps we take to protect your personal information.


We understand our responsibilities to handle personal information with respect and recognize that it is important to inform you how we collect, store, and disclose the information you have shared with us. Our goal is to help you make an informed decision about sharing personal information with Travelers With Cause.


This Privacy Policy may be updated occasionally, so we recommend that you review it to be aware of your rights and any changes. If you engage with Travelers With Cause on behalf of others, it is your responsibility to ensure that those you represent are aware of the content of this Privacy Policy and consent to you acting on their behalf.


When this policy refers to “Travelers With Cause,” “TWC,” “we,” “us,” or “our,” it refers to Travelers With Cause, which is responsible as the data controller for the security and management of your personal information.


References to “Social Organizations” or “Social Projects” relate to independent organizations responsible for hosting travelers recruited and acquired by Travelers With Cause. While we promote best practice data protection measures, we make no representations or warranties regarding the privacy practices of independent local teams or any other third-party organizations.
