From time to time, we may send you information about AC2010 or Achimota-related events using bulk
email, because it is an efficient way of communicating. We do not disclose your email address to anyone.

Information held by AC2010
To try to create a more cohesive Achimota community, we are building a database of information on
Achimota alumni and others who donate to the school through the Achimota Trust and the OAA 1980 North
America Group (hereinafter the “Trusts”).
Through various forms on our website, we occasionally receive information about you, such as your name,
address, phone numbers, email addresses, graduation year, current profession, and your boarding house if
you attended Achimota and updates to the alumni directory.
We safeguard this information in a number of ways:
Credit Card Information
On our “How to Donate” page, you will find online forms provided by third parties for donations to the
Trusts. These forms collect credit card information. This information will not be shared with anyone else.
When you make a donation using a credit card, your transaction will be processed in a secure manner. Our
website uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, an industry-standard security protocol widely used for
commercial transactions on the Internet. Its presence is signified by “https://” rather than just the usual
“http://” in the URL line at the top of your screen. Although there is no such thing as completely “perfect
security” on the Internet, we have taken all commercially reasonable steps to insure the safety of your
personal information, and millions of financial transactions take place daily in a secure way under the
protection of SSL technology.
Safeguards to Protect Your Personal Information
We do not distribute any of your contact information to anyone.
We restrict the contact information we hold primarily to your name, previous name, nickname, address,
phone number, graduation year, boarding house, current profession, and e-mail address.
We share your contact information with others only for the limited purpose of facilitating the Achimota
Capital Campaign. For example, we may share the name of an alumnus with an Achimota School Year
Group that is planning to hold a fundraising event on behalf of the School.
We will not release any of your contact information to anyone unless that individual, entity, or website has
All such AC2010 partners must sign a Confidentiality/Non-Disclosure Agreement agreeing not to repurpose
or sell any personal donor information they receive from us.
They must also agree to destroy all copies of contact information after their contract with AC2010 has
expired or been terminated.
Only if authorized or required by law will we release contact information to a third party.
