VisionSpring is a constantly growing and changing organization. Because of this, we try to keep up-to-date records on our donors and partner so we can keep you informed and involved in what we are doing. VisionSpring understands the importance of respecting privacy. Let’s take a look at how VisionSpring uses your information while keeping it safe!
VisionSpring collects and uses a variety of personal information that may include: names, addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, amounts donated, affiliations, and comments. Federal and state tax laws require us to keep donor contact information and donation records on file. This information is kept secure and confidential.
VisionSpring protects information in accordance to laws and data privacy policies. In addition to that, we maintain the appropriate technical and organizational steps to safeguard personal data against unauthorized or unlawful processing and/or against accidental loss, alteration, disclosure or access, or accidental or unlawful destruction of or damage thereto. Our applications use SSL/TLS to encrypt the data which add an additional layer of protection. Emails use encryption for sensitive information.
We do not publish, trade, sell, rent, or share our contact’s information. We do use contact information for communicating about our charitable work and activities, thanking and receipting, maintaining our records, analyzing our fundraising process, and complying with federal and state reporting laws (private personal information is not released for public inspection). We may use comments for promotional purposes only with the informed consent of the donor.
All access to donor financial information is limited strictly to professional staff with a specific need to have access to this information. Professional staff with access to private information are governed by our policies and professional codes of ethics. VisionSpring uses reputable and ethical on-line payment services that certify donor privacy. VisionSpring does not retain or have access to donor credit card numbers, bank account numbers, or other confidential personal financial information.
