Privacy Policy

The United Nations World Food Programme Privacy Policy

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for secure donation forms and web pages.

This site contains links to other sites. WFP is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site and web sites operated by WFP.

General Information Collection and Use

The United Nations World Food Programme is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. We collect information from our users at several different points on our website.


WFP Web pages use Google analytics to help analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.


Web pages hosted by WFP use "cookies". 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 our site. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.


WFP will share aggregated demographic information with our partners. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We partner with an outside company for processing online donations. This company does not retain share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. Partners and certain service providers are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.


If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend's name and email address. WFP will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. WFP stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. The friend may contact WFP at to request the removal of this information from their database.


This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control of our transaction service provider. This includes a firewall and 24-hour monitoring of site activities by our hosting service provider as well as 128-bit SSL encryption (where allowable by law) on all transaction oriented operations between you and WFP via our transaction service provider.
