The Cameroon Development And Education Foundation “CADEF” values the privacy of our members and all users of our services, including this website. “CADEF” collects information to help us better serve you and the nonprofit sector. It is our policy to collect and store only personal information that is knowingly provided to us. We do not share personally identifiable information, except when persons consent to “CADEF” sharing personally identifiable information for a specific purpose. “CADEF” also collects organizational information for research and member services purposes, which in some cases outlined below may be shared with third parties.

This Privacy Policy explains our practices regarding the collection of information from this website that can personally identify you and/or your organization, and the choices you can make about how your information is collected and used.

Personal Information Collected

Through “CADEF”'s member and research database that can be accessed through this website by members and other customers with online accounts, and through the “CADEF” e-newsletter sign-up form that can be accessed through this website, “CADEF” collects and stores contact information from individuals as it is knowingly provided to us, including email addresses. We use this information to contact individuals via email and mail with additional resources that might be of interest, including upcoming events and trainings, new publications, or other resources. You may choose at any time not to provide personally identifiable information, although this may restrict our ability to provide requested services or information.

“CADEF” may use or share your personal information where it is necessary to complete a transaction or to do something that you have explicitly asked us to do. “CADEF” uses other third parties such as a credit card processing company to process fees, dues, and purchase payments for services and goods. These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for promotional purposes.

The following are examples of personally identifiable information that you may volunteer to provide and examples of how we use such information.

• Email Addresses

“CADEF” collects email addresses from those that create online user accounts, register for events, or subscribe to emails. “CADEF” may use your email address to send you emails from “CADEF”, including marketing emails, member updates, or email newsletters. All such emails include an unsubscribe link that you may use to remove your email address from the list. “CADEF” does not distribute email addresses to third parties, with the exceptions outlined in the Organizational Information Collected section below.

• Mailing Addresses

“CADEF” collects mailing addresses of those that register for events or purchase items or services. “CADEF” may send via mail member newsletters, brochures or other promotional items. To opt out of any mailings from “CADEF”, email contact@cardef.org, call +237 675 219 026, or send a written notice to Cameroon Development And Education Foundation., Motowoh Junction, P.O Box 469 Limbe,South West Region, Cameroon.

• Workplace Information and/or Organization Affiliation

Those who create online “CADEF” user accounts, register for “CADEF” events, or subscribe to “CADEF” emails often provide information about where they work, their job title or areas of interest, and organization information such as membership on a board of directors or role as a volunteer. “CADEF” uses this information solely to facilitate information sharing between “CADEF” and the individual. Individual workplace information and individual organization affiliation information is not distributed by “CADEF” on this website or elsewhere, and is not shared with third parties without the consent of the individual, with the exceptions below in the section Organization Information Collected and Third Party Uses.

• Cookies

Many websites, including this one, use “cookies,” pieces of numeric data stored on your computer. This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by these cookies about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for “CADEF” website operators, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you refuse the use of cookies you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website and may not be able to access portions of our website content and online registration and payment system. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Organizational Information Collected and Third Party Uses

“CADEF” does not make organizational contact information or personal identifying information available on this website unless it is approved by an organization and/or individual for a specific purpose. Member organizations are listed by organization name on this website, with links to member organization websites as provided by the member organizations.

Information collected when the “CADEF” online system is used to join “CADEF” or renew membership is stored on servers that meet or exceed industry privacy standards and related information privacy laws of the United States and the State of Wisconsin.

“CADEF” occasionally makes mailing lists of nonprofit organizations and selected email addresses available to third parties. For example, organizational contact information is shared with third-party research firms for express, limited use in conducting sector-wide surveys, such as the “CADEF” biennial survey of nonprofit organization salary and benefits compensation. These lists are limited to organization names, a specific contact person name for the intended research project, and an email address to be used in the course of the research project or survey. Third parties using “CADEF” lists for such research purposes agree not to share, sell, or use or distribute the lists for any other purpose.

Mailing lists of organizations in the “CADEF” database are also made available to third parties upon request and payment to “CADEF”. “CADEF” mailing lists are only made available to other organizations for a single use. The use of an “CADEF” mailing list by another organization is only allowed if “CADEF”: 1) determines that the material to be mailed is in keeping with the Nonprofit Center’s mission of service to the nonprofit sector; and, 2) that the material will have a high likelihood for informational, educational and/or cost-saving benefit to the organizations that receive the mailing. Information on these lists includes only organization name, contact person name, street address, city, state and zip code.

Any organization may request their information be omitted from lists provided by “CADEF” to third parties by contacting us at contact@cardef.org or +237 675 219 026 and expressing its preference not to have its information shared.

Financial Data Security

“CADEF” does not disclose credit card account information provided by members and other users of our services. When members and other customers make an online payment to “CADEF” by credit card, all of the information in the transaction is submitted directly to a secure credit card processor.


“CADEF” takes photographs and videos during public events and solicits photographs and videos from our members that are representative of their work, and occasionally distributes these photos and videos for distribution via this website, social media, or other means. Photos and videos are taken by “CADEF”, or by persons authorized by “CADEF” to take photos and videos on “CADEF”'s behalf, in public settings during public events. We make every effort to obtain implied or specific consent from individuals for photos and videos taken at public events. “CADEF” also takes photos and videos at non-public events and in these settings makes every effort to obtain appropriate distribution and usage permissions from those photographed or videotaped.

If you see that you are included in a photograph or video distributed by “CADEF” and would prefer that it not be distributed, please contact “CADEF” at contact@cardef.org and let us know what photo or video you are referring to and where you saw it. We will remove it from circulation to the best of our ability.

Choice to Opt Out

“CADEF” provides all individuals and customers the opportunity to opt out of having your personal information used for certain purposes. If you are a member of “CADEF”, have registered for an event, or no longer wish to receive promotional communications, you may also opt out of receiving such communications by sending an email to contact@cardef.org.
