Terms of Use

This website is intended to provide news and information about EBI.  We will make reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy and timeliness of content.

EBI does not track, collect or distribute personal information about site visitors.  However, we do collect some information about site visits.  We have access to domain names and I.P. addresses of visitors for website security purposes.

Secure Transactions

EBI is committed to the privacy of all our donors and to those making any kind of transaction via The EBI website.  EBI takes precautions to protect your information.  When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Should you decide to make an online donation or purchase, you will be asked to provide billing and payment information, including your name, contact information and credit card details.  All of this information is encrypted using SSL, an industry-standard secure technology designed to prevent the theft or interception of the information you provide.  Billing and credit card payment information is used only to obtain payment from the appropriate credit card firm and to fulfill the donor's or purchaser's request and is not stored or otherwise retained by EBI after the transaction is complete.  

Although EBI takes appropriate measures to safeguard against the unauthorized disclosure of information, it cannot guarantee that the information it collects will not be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this policy.  If you feel that the School, or another third party, is not abiding by this Privacy Policy, please contact us immediately at khayes@ebinternacional.org so that we may endeavor to address your concerns.
