When our donors give to us, they join our team—Team IMPACT—and we cannot use “Team” in our name without living up to those ideals. So, what does that mean in terms of Donor Privacy?
Simply put: you are part of our team and we will protect your name and personal information.
Team IMPACT strongly believes in protecting the integrity and privacy of personal information gathered from our supporters through all our communication channels, as well as from visitors to our website. We will be transparent and trustworthy. We will not sell, share, or trade our donors’ names or personal information with any other entity, not send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations. We will provide the ability to opt-out as a link in every mass-email message. Those that wish to opt-out will be placed on a Board Approved Discontinue Contact List, which will remove the donor from solicitation and other mailing lists. We will not mishandle or act irresponsibly with your personal information. We will not fumble, bobble, throw up an airball, or otherwise strike out. We will not let our teammates down.
Team IMPACT greatly respects and protects your privacy and we will never sell or rent your personal information to other individuals or companies. The information that you provide is used only to complete your donation.
- To provide the services that you request and to communicate with you regarding such services;
- To respond to your inquiries and to contact you about changes to the website;
- To send you notices or our e-newsletter (if you have signed up to receive it);
- To provide and maintain the website, help diagnose problems with the website, and to administer and audit usage of the website;
- For statistical analysis and internal business purposes such as identifying trends.
- For any other purposes disclosed at the time the information is collected or to which you consent; and
When we collect payment information, in order to process one-time and/or recurring fees, those charges are processed through a credit card company processing company. The company does not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
Donors may choose to register to receive additional information or services from us. When they register, we request personal information such as name, email address and/or telephone number, and we may ask for other information to enable us to provide a more relevant, personalized service. The information provided may be stored in our database, however we endeavor to limit our requests for personal information to information we believe is minimally necessary to achieve our collection purpose. We may also supplement your profile information with publicly available data such as zip codes and other demographic information.
Donor Legal Compliance
Though Team IMPACT makes every effort to preserve our donor and customer privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when we have good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order, or legal process served on our organization.
Charitable Solicitation Disclosure
We currently do not use a Charitable Solicitation Disclosure as we do not currently use any other entities for professional fundraising purposes.
