We Respect Your Privacy
Children’s Literacy Initiative is committed to respecting the privacy of its financial and in-kind donors, whether the donation is made online, by mail, or any other method. When you make a financial or in-kind donation, you provide your name, contact information, and in some cases credit card data. We take the protection of this data very seriously and protect your information in many ways.
We use industry standard safeguards to protect your information including encryption, access controls, network firewalls, and physical security. These measures make it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept the credit card information you send to us. When we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, those companies also use encryption and other appropriate security measures.
Children’s Literacy Initiative will not sell, share or trade our donors’ personally identifiable information with any other entity. In addition, we will not send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations, unless a donor has given us specific permission to do so. Children’s Literacy Initiative has 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 Children’s Literacy Initiative operations.
