We are committed to respecting the privacy of our supporters, including our financial and in-kind donors, whether the donation is made online, by mail, or any other method.
Certain pages on our site may invite you to voluntarily share personally identifying information, such as your name, address, email address, or telephone number. Sharing that information will allow you to make a donation, join our email list, sign a petition, or participate in other similar online activities. We may use that voluntarily submitted data to complete your donation, provide you with updates about the work you support, our activities or news, or about opportunities to support us.
When you make a financial or in-kind donation, you provide your name and contact information. Financial donors provide standard payment information including, in many circumstances, credit card data. We and the companies we work with to process credit card data use industry standard safeguards to protect your information. These measures include encryption, access controls, network firewalls, and other appropriate security measures to protect your information.
We will not sell, share or trade your personally identifiable information with any other entity. In addition, we will not send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations. We have vendors that assist with processing and managing donations and donor data. We give these vendors access to donor data. Our vendors are bound by strict confidentiality rules and are permitted to use donor data only to support our operations.
