Thank you for visiting our website and for reviewing our privacy policy. We are committed to safeguarding your privacy online and when using your data for our charitable work. This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you or that you provide to us, will be processed and protected by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we may collect and use it.


Information collected and how it is used

When you provide The Sapinda Rainbow Foundation (“The Foundation”) with personal information, we take all reasonable steps to ensure that the information will be stored and processed securely, in accordance with this policy and with data protection legislation.


Different types of personally identifiable information are collected by The Foundation in order to optimize the charitable network and keep you informed about recent developments in our organization. These collected data include, but are not limited to: name, mailing address, telephone numbers, email addresses, credit card information and other information that may be needed for our charitable work. All this information is provided voluntarily by you through application forms, email messages sent to The Foundation, submitted forms through Payfast, identification forms in social media, information provided by the telephone and other means.


The Foundation also collects different types of non-personally identifiable information about its website visitors. These include but are not limited to referral URLs, IP addresses, browser types, etc. Some of this information is collected through Cookies, which are small pieces of data that are sent to your browser from a web server and are stored on your computer’s hard drive. You have the choice to modify your browser and thus to reject our cookies (see below: Cookies).


By providing your personal information to The Foundation, visiting our website and accepting cookies, you consent to the use of that information as set out in this policy.
The information we obtain helps us to understand better how our website is used, what our stakeholders are interested in and who is donating. Your contact details are used to send you information you request, together with any other information about The Foundation we believe may be of interest to you. We explicitly also share your contact information with our partner charities that may keep you updated on their charitable work. If you do not want to receive any further communications from The Foundation or our partner charities, please email us at


Any financial, banking or credit card details related to donations that you provide will be shared with your bank/credit card company and/or otherwise as necessary to process your payment(s). For example, PayFast will store and process personal information in order to facilitate online payments made through this website. Further information about Payfast’s privacy policy is available here:


We do not disclose any personal information provided by you or gathered by us to non-affiliated third parties or non-partner charities, except as required by law or as set out in this policy.
We reserve the right to disclose or report personal information to non-affiliated third parties in limited circumstances where disclosure is required under law, to cooperate with regulators, tax administrations or law enforcement authorities, and to protect our rights or property. In addition, we may disclose information about you to a non-affiliated third party at your request or if you consent in writing to the disclosure.
To comply with relevant law, we must maintain a record of all contributions made to The Foundation. We are also required to hold personal information to administer donation declarations. In this regard, we will release personal data to third parties such as tax administrations where we have a duty to do so but only to the extent that such duty requires.
