How Does Laaha uses your non identifying Information?

We disclose information that we collect through the site to third parties in the following circumstances: 

  • To third-party service providers who provide services to us, such as website hosting, data analysis, information technology and related infrastructure provisions, analytics providers to deliver content targeted to your interests and to help us to better understand how you use our site, email delivery, and other services. We will never, however, sell your information to a third party.  

  • To the UNICEF National Committee in your country to support local projects, initiatives and campaigns.  

We will only transfer your non identifying Information to trusted third parties who provide sufficient guarantees in respect of the technical and organizational security measures governing the processing to be carried out and who can demonstrate a commitment to compliance with those measures. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your non identifying Information for their own purposes and only permit them to process it for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions. 

Some of the third parties mentioned in this Privacy Policy may be located in countries outside your country of residence. Where we transfer your non identifying Information outside of your country, we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely. You agree to us handling your information in the manner set out in this Privacy Policy and that the obligations imposed by privacy laws in other countries may be less stringent than the requirements established by the privacy laws in your country.  Where we transfer your information internationally, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and the means of transfer provides adequate safeguards. 

Controlling Your Information

How long does Laaha keep your information?

We will only use and store information for so long as it is required for the purposes it was collected for and as specified in UNICEF’s retention policy. We use your non identifying Information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements and rights, or if it is not technically and reasonably feasible to remove it.  

We also retain the right to store your non identifying Information with parties outside of UNICEF’s direct control, such as with the servers or databases of a third-party organization. Otherwise, we will seek to delete your non identifying Information within a reasonable timeframe upon your request. 


We use many reasonable measures – physical and electronic – to prevent your non identifyig Information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, it is always a possibility that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access this data or private communications.  

So, although we work extremely hard to safeguard your non identifying Information, we cannot guarantee that your information or communications will always remain private.
