IFCJ adheres to the Association of Fundraising Professionals “Donor Bill of Rights”, which can be found here: Donor Bill of Rights.
IFCJ 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 and contact information. Financial donors provide standard payment information including, in many circumstances, credit card data. We protect your information in a variety of ways, as described below.
We use Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards to protect your information. Many donors use credit cards for donations. We protect the security of credit card transactions by using a number of measures such as 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 security measures.
We will not sell, share or trade our donors’ personal 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.
IFCJ has vendors that assist with processing and managing donations and donor data. On occasion we give these vendors access to donor data, and they are bound by strict confidentiality rules and must comply with the same standards we do.
