### Privacy Policy

##### Last Revised: June 2013

[//]: BODY
#### Watsi, Inc.

Watsi, Inc. ("Watsi," "we," or "us") knows that you care how information about
you is used and shared, and we are committed to protecting your privacy. This
Privacy Policy explains what information of yours will be collected by Watsi when
you access the Watsi Service, located at watsi.org (the "Site"). We will not use or
share your personal information with anyone except as described in this Privacy
Policy. We treat your personal information as we would and do treat our own.

#### Questions and Concerns

If you have any questions, concerns, or complaints about our Privacy Policy or
data collection and processing practices, or if you want to report any security
violations to us, please contact us at #{mail_to "privacy@watsi.org"}.

#### User Consent

By submitting Personal Data through our Site, you agree to the terms of this
Privacy Policy and you expressly consent to the collection, use and disclosure of
your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

#### Donors Outside of the United States

If you are non U.S. user of the Site, by visiting the Site and providing us with data,
you acknowledge and agree that your personal information may be processed
for the purposes identified in the Privacy Policy. In addition, your personal
information may be processed in the country in which it was collected and in
other countries, including the United States, where laws regarding processing of
personal information may be less stringent than the laws in your country. By
providing your data, you consent to such transfer.

#### Children

We do not intentionally gather Personal information from visitors who are under
the age of 13. If a child under 13 submits Personal information through the Site
and we learn that the Personal information is the information of a child under 13,
we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. If you believe that
we might have any Personal information from a child under 13, please contact
us at #{mail_to "privacy@watsi.org"}.

#### Information We Collect

We may collect and process the following information about you:

#### Your Information Choices and Changes

We want to communicate with you about the great work you are enabling
through the Site, but only if you want to hear from us. We try to keep emails to a
minimum and give you the ability to opt out by following the unsubscribe
instructions provided in the email you receive or by contacting us directly at
#{mail_to "privacy@watsi.org"}. Despite your indicated email preferences, we may send you
service related communications, including emails related to your donations and

#### Third-Party Services

The Service allows donors to create Accounts using third-party services like
Facebook and Google+. Additionally the Service allows donors to access various
social networking services ("SNS") such as Facebook, to interact with friends and
to share Service related information.
We never post any personal information to one of your SNS without your
permission.

#### Technology

We use various technologies to enhance your experience on our Site.
Cookies are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer's
hard drive while you are viewing the website. We may use both session Cookies
(which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which
stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more
personal and interactive experience on our Site. This type of information is
collected to make the Site more useful to you and to tailor the experience with
us to meet your special interests and needs. Most Web browsers are set to
accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your
browser to remove cookies and to reject cookies. If you choose to remove
cookies or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of our Site.
Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to
Cookies, that are used to track online movements of Web users. In contrast to
Cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are
embedded invisibly in Web pages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send e-mail
messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been
opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our
users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a
user. We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to our users' personal
information.

We use Google Analytics to help analyze how users use the Site. Google
Analytics uses Cookies to collect information such as how often users visit the Site,
what pages they visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to the Site.
We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve our Site
and Services. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on
the date you visit the Site, rather than your name or other personally identifying
information. We do not combine the information generated through the use of
Google Analytics with your personal information. Although Google Analytics
plants a persistent Cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user
the next time you visit the Site, the Cookie cannot be used by anyone but
Google. Google's ability to use and share information collected by Google
Analytics about your visits to the Site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of
Use and the Google Privacy Policy.

#### Voluntary Disclosure

Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose in public areas
of the Site, such as in the creation of your Profile, becomes publicly available
and can be collected and used by others. You should exercise caution before
disclosing your personal information through these public venues.

#### Security of Your Personal information

We are committed to protecting the security of your Personal information. We
use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help
protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
We also require you to enter a password to access your Account information.
Please do not disclose your Account password to unauthorized people. No
method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is
100% secure, however. Therefore, while Company uses reasonable efforts to
protect your personal information, Company cannot guarantee its absolute
security.

#### Changes to This Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time for any reason. We will
notify you of any changes to our Privacy Policy by posting the new Privacy Policy
at #{link_to privacy_url} and we will change the "Last Updated" date
above. You should consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes.
