General Collection, Use and Protection of Personal Information:
The Foundation collects and uses personal information such as name, address, phone number, and email address when it is voluntarily provided to us. This information may be provided when making a donation, requesting information or registering to download materials such as newsletters or other communications.
Additionally, the Foundation, through its payment processing vendor*, keeps a record of each donor's giving history. Our payment processing vendor processes your online donations using encryption and security protocols to protect your personally identifiable information. This information is kept on file for tax reporting purposes and may be used by us as a tool to analyze general contribution trends as we undertake our budgeting activities.
The Foundation does not share the names and addresses we collect with other charitable organizations or any other groups. Personal account number information is never shared with other organizations besides our payment processing vendor*.
*Our on-line credit card verification system is currently handled by a PayPal, a third party payment processing company, which collects your name, address, phone number, credit card number and expiration date in order to process your transaction. Their encryption technology offers a secure environment to ensure the confidentiality of your transactions.
This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for the sacredpeoplefoundation.org website. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. This privacy notice discloses:

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell, rent or provide this information to anyone, except as set forth in this policy.
We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as may be necessary to respond to your request.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
- See what data we have about you, if any;

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information (such as credit card data) via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information, it is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g., process donations, send emails to our mailing list) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site
As stated above, we engage a payment processing provider to provide specific services with regard to processing of donations and payments to the Foundation. We may engage other services providers in the future. When appropriate, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide their services. These parties are required to protect personally identifiable information and are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
