  1. Privacy Policy

 

Updated: June 2023

Human know-how Foundation (“Foundation”) is committed to the lawful and transparent collection and use of data you provide to us through your interaction with our websites[1] (the “Sites”). This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) explains what information we collect and why we collect it, how we use that information, and your options for controlling and updating your information.

By using our Sites, you agree to be legally bound by this Policy and the Terms of Use. If you do not agree to this Policy or cannot form a legally binding contract, you may not use the Sites.

Note that the collection and use of personally identifying information regarding our donors is additionally governed by our Donor Privacy Policy.

If at any time you have questions about this Policy, please let us know by contacting us at legal@lilypetkova.com.

[1]The Foundation’s websites and brands are: humanknowhow.org; lilypetkova.com; office.lilypetkova.com; holistic.bg; webtools.holistic.bg; translate.holistic.bg; ai.holistic.bg, body.holistic.bg,

Information Collected

We collect two types of information from you: (1) personally identifying information voluntarily provided by you (“PII”), and (2) non-identifying data about your use of our Sites (“General Information”).

PII

We collect PII when you voluntarily provide it to us by, for example, signing up for an email distribution list, registering for an account, filling out a job application, or purchasing merchandise on one of our Sites.

PII may include, but is not limited to, your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, credit or debit card information, bank information, job application information, resumes and cover letters.

It is your choice to provide PII. You do not need to disclose more PII than is requested.

You should not provide PII about others unless you are expressly authorized to do so.

We may receive PII about you from other sources, including your company/organization, professional references, publicly available sources, third-party analytics providers, and other third parties. For example, we may receive your PII if: someone at your company/organization designates you as a contact person for that company/organization or includes information about you in proposal documents; another visitor includes it in any feedback, comments, photos, videos, or other information submitted via online portals, electronic forms, surveys, or interactive portions of our Sites; or one of our employees or service providers or a third party acting on apparent authority provides it to us when registering you to access our facilities or our Sites, apply for a job, or participate in one of our events.

The Foundation obtains contact details and other personal information regarding media contacts and influencers from a variety of sources.

General Information

The Foundation automatically collects General Information about which of our Sites you visit and how you navigate them using tracking technologies, including small text files called “cookies” and electronic images known as “web beacons.”

The information collected via cookies, and other tracking technologies is anonymous and not personally identifiable.

General Information may include, without limitation, your:

  • Session date and time
  • Internet Protocol (IP) address
  • Internet Service Provider (ISP)
  • Location
  • Language
  • Browser, operating system and device types
  • Source or referral sites; and
  • Browsing behavior, including pages visited, hyperlinks clicked, session times and search requests.

Cookies allow the Foundation to measure activity on the Sites and to improve your user experience by, for example, remembering your passwords and viewing preferences and allowing you to visit any member-only parts of the Sites without re-registering. If you do not want us to collect information using cookies, you can disable this function in your browser. If you block cookies from us, however, you may not be able to see personalized content and our website may not function optimally.

 

 

Use and Disclosure of Information

PII

The Foundation will use your PII for the purposes for which it was collected, and for the limited purposes set forth below.

The Foundation will not share your PII with any third parties, unless it is necessary:

  • To support the Foundation’s mission. Specifically, we may share your information with our employees, agents, subsidiaries and affiliated entities, and certain third parties, such as contractors and service providers that need access to such information to carry out work on our behalf, including to:
    • respond to your requests,
    • process donations or merchandise orders,
    • send newsletters, surveys, notices or content, and
    • administer, enhance and troubleshoot the Sites;
  • To comply with the Foundation’s donor disclosure obligations, as set forth in the Foundation’s Donor Privacy Policy;
  • To change website hosts or when our host transfers business assets (as described below); and
  • To comply with the law and regulations, court orders, subpoenas or other legal demands.

The Foundation will not sell, rent, or exchange your PII, unless you give the Foundation specific permission to do so.

General Information

The Foundation will aggregate and analyse General Information and use it for operational and administrative purposes, including to identify our Site visitors’ levels and areas of interest in our content, and to improve the Sites. We may also share aggregated or anonymized General Information that does not directly identify you with third parties.

Your Right to Control Your Personally Identifying Information

If you want to give the Foundation permission to sell, rent, or exchange your PII, you may opt-in by emailing us at legal@lilypetkova.com, or mailing us a letter addressed to Human know-how Foundation, Unit 53, 7 Ivan Rilski Str., Plovdiv, 4003, Bulgaria.

If, at any time, you wish to opt-out or to change or remove PII previously provided to us, please email us at legal@lilypetkova.com, or mail us a letter addressed to Human know-how Foundation, Unit 53, 7 Ivan Rilski Str., Plovdiv, 4003, Bulgaria.

If you signed up for, but no longer wish to receive, Foundation emails, you may remove yourself from our distribution lists by clicking the “unsubscribe” link that is at the bottom of every email from the Foundation, emailing us at legal@lilypetkova.com, or mailing us a letter addressed to Human know-how Foundation, Unit 53, 7 Ivan Rilski Str., Plovdiv, 4003, Bulgaria.

Transfer of Business Assets

At any time, the Sites’ web host may be acquired, merge with another organization or acquire or buy other businesses or assets. In such transactions, PII and General Information may be among the transferred assets.

Our Commitment to Data Security

PII is stored on the servers of certain third-party service providers. Such service providers are required to use best practices to maintain the confidentiality of your PII, consistent with this Policy. Additionally, service providers may only use your PII for the purpose of providing services to us. Sensitive data such as credit card numbers are encrypted and tokenized using SSL and other industry standard measures to provide an additional level of security.

The transmission of information via the Internet can never be completely secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to our sites and any such transmission is at your own risk.

We take steps to protect the safety of your PII. The Sites have security measures in place to help protect loss, misuse, or alteration of such information under our control. However, we cannot guarantee the security of your PII or General Information, and we do not assume any liability for third party use of your PII or General Information, whether obtained legally or illegally from or through our Sites.

Links

Our Sites may contain links to third-party websites, including social media websites. This Policy does not apply to any third-party websites. The Foundation is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of any third-party websites. We encourage you to review the privacy and other online policies of other websites that you link to, visit, and/or use.

Children

The Foundation does not seek to collect any information from children under the age of 18, except when necessary for educational programming. In such instances, the Foundation obtains verifiable parental consent and does not ask for more information than is necessary for the child to participate in the educational event. The Foundation does not knowingly collect PII from children under the age of 18, without obtaining verifiable parental consent for such collection. If you become aware of any PII we have collected from a child without parental consent, please email us at legal@lilypetkova.com or mail us a letter addressed to Human know-how Foundation, Unit 53, 7 Ivan Rilski Str., Plovdiv, 4003, Bulgaria. If we learn that we have collected PII from a child without parental consent, we will take steps to delete the data without notice as soon as possible.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

The Foundation may update this Policy at any time. Any changes to the Policy will be reflected on this “Privacy Policy” page, and by continuing to use the Sites, you agree to those changes. We may also notify you about significant changes in the way we treat PII via email or by placing a prominent notice on our Sites.

  1. Fraud Alert

 

Updated June 2023

Recently, some Foundation donors have received emails saying their Foundation account information has been hacked, and seeking to confirm personal information via a linked website. This email is not from the Human know-how Foundation – it is a phishing attempt. We urge you not to respond to or click on the link in the email. Any legitimate email from the Foundation will come only from a HumanKnowHow.org email address.

If you receive a phishing email, or have any questions about the authenticity of an email purporting to be from the Foundation, please contact fraudalert@humanknowhow.org.

 

Updated June 2023

Several fraudulent solicitations claiming to be from or associated with the Human know-how Foundation and its initiatives and affiliated entities are circulating the internet. Such solicitations, which are sent in a variety of forms including email and social media messaging, may falsely state that they are issued by, or in association with, the Human know-how, its staff, and/or a member of the family. They may include the Human know-how Foundation logo or the logos of the Foundation’s initiatives, projects and affiliated entities, links to the Foundation’s website or the websites of its affiliated entities, names of Foundation staff members, and reference to Foundation events. Please see the list at the bottom of this page for examples of such scams.

The Foundation is taking steps to address these scams, but unfortunately, cannot stop them all. If you receive a solicitation that you feel is suspicious, please forward it to fraudalert@humanknowhow.org. To be clear, the Human know-how Foundation, its employees, and its representatives do not:

  • Sponsor gambling or award prize money to individuals or organizations.
  • Randomly select individuals to participate in Foundation events, such as workshops, conferences, and awards ceremonies.
  • Send unsolicited emails from Foundation members or representatives, other than those that originate from the Foundation’s official mailing list.
  • Send Foundation-related correspondence via LinkedIn InMail, Twitter Direct Message, Facebook Messenger, or any other social media messaging applications.
  • Send unsolicited emails or messages on social media offering Lily Petkova’s participation in an event.

Please exercise extreme caution if you receive solicitations that are not from a verifiable representative of the Foundation, from a verifiable HumanKnowHow.org email address. Below are some tips to help you avoid scams:

  • Disregard emails that say you have won a lottery or have been awarded a cash prize.
  • Do not respond to emails or direct messages (including messages sent on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, or any other social media forum) that claim to be from Lily Petkova or any of representatives.
  • Avoid filling out forms embedded in email messages.
  • Be extremely cautious if you receive unsolicited emails requesting personal or financial information, or asking you to wire money.
  • If you would like to make a contribution to the Human know-how Foundation, ensure you do so by directly visiting the verified pages and locations on the Foundation’s portfolio.
  • Verify any questionable or suspicious solicitation you receive by contacting the appropriate Foundation office or representative, or by emailing fraudalert@humanknowhow.org.

Below are examples of scams which we display for prevention purposes to the Human know-how Foundation. This is not an exhaustive list:

  • Communication from an individual using the domain humanknowhow.CO. This individual may use any name and may represent his/herself as Human know-how Foundation’s executive assistant. This domain name and individual are in no way affiliated with Lily Petkova or the Human know-how Foundation and all communications from this person are fraudulent. Any and all Foundation-related scheduling requests must be directed to fraudalert@humanknowhow.org.
  • Emails inviting attendees to an COVID, HIV-AIDS or Health Prevention.
  • Emails from an individual or individuals, related to Lily Petkova’s Foundation, which are not verified as official representatives.
  • Emails from an individual or individuals misrepresenting themselves as agents of Human know-how Foundation promoting a lottery in conjunction with the Human know-how Foundation.
  • Emails claiming to be from the United Nations Framework, European Union, United Nation Framework Convention on Climate Change Foundation (UNFCCC)  and Human know-how Foundation promising a monetary award.

If you have questions about the authenticity of a communication you have received, please forward it to fraudalert@humanknowhow.org.
