Dalit Solidarity, Inc. is committed to donor privacy.
We respect your privacy and do not rent, sell, or exchange our mailing lists. We may disclose some personal information to select third parties in order to more effectively target our donor communications.
What does this mean?
We value your trust and assure you that we will always strive to be responsible in our management, truthful in our advertising, and cost-effective in our fundraising.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at 1-708-612-4248 or mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dalit Solidarity has been working alongside to the poor and suffering for 20 years, and we are continually working to ensure every dollar is used to its fullest for this purpose. Anything less would violate the trust we keep with you, the children, families, and communities we serve, and most importantly, with God.
We are committed to the highest standard of stewardship excellence. We will make every effort to honor any designation or preference you have stated. In certain circumstances, where a project is over funded or cannot be carried out in accordance with your preference, the funds will be used for similar projects approved by the Board of Directors.
Disclosure to Third Parties
To most efficiently use the resources you entrusted to us, we may disclose to select third parties information regarding donation history. Information of this kind is used to enable Dalit Solidarity to identify others like yourself interested in partnering with us to help children and their families. Information provided in donation history may include statistics such as total number of donations and value of donations for a set period of time. This information disclosure is done very carefully to ensure that your personal information is protected.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
As with most other Internet sites, our web servers utilize “cookies” to track a user’s activity within our site as well as record the IP address of each visitor to this site. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer. A cookie contains a unique identifying feature that allows our computer to recognize you when you return to the Dalit Solidarity site. The recorded IP address tells us which domain you visited from (for instance, yahoo.com), but not your email address or other private and personal information. If you wish to opt out of this type of data collection, you can disable cookies in your web browser. Please note that disabling cookies may diminish the experience of the websites you visit, including Dalit Solidarity.
We may use the information we record for any of the following purposes:
- To help diagnose problems with our servers, and to administer this website more effectively;
- To gather broad demographic information about what countries and domains our visitors come from and their behavior on our site;
- For marketing and fundraising purposes, including through cross channel means such as email and direct mail communications.
In some cases, our site uses securely encrypted contribution response forms for visitors who choose to use these forms to provide information, request information, and make donations. We collect your willingly submitted contact information (such as your email address), unique identifiers (in some cases, a Dalit Solidarity donor account number), and financial information (such as a credit card type, number, and expiration date). Contact information from these response forms is used to process donations, as well as to provide receipts and other information about Dalit Solidarity to our customers. The visitor’s contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. Users may readily opt out of receiving future communications; see the “opt out” and “modifying your information” sections below. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for donations pledged. Unique identifiers (such as a Dalit Solidarity account number) may be collected from website visitors to assist in matching current donation information with donor history in our record systems.
Those who choose to register through various “subscribe”-type features on our site may choose to give us certain contact information (such as their email address). Unless you opt out, we may use this contact information to send you additional information about Dalit Solidarity and its programs. Your voluntarily provided contact information may also be used to contact you when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. You may readily opt out of receiving future communications; see the “opt out” and “modifying your information” sections below.
Online Data Security
All response forms requesting confidential information (such as credit card numbers) on Dalit Solidarity’s website utilize the Internet security protocol known as “Secure Sockets Layer” or “SSL.” This is a certification and encryption technology designed to make using your credit card as safe as possible on the Internet.
Independent agencies report that, statistically speaking, using a credit card on the Internet through SSL is far safer than submitting your credit card to a clerk in the grocery store, or over an open telephone line. In fact, they report that there are no recorded instances of someone “breaking” SSL encryption and using credit card information stored therein for fraudulent purposes.
The SSL technology depends on secure Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) which are certified by a certifying authority. Secure URLs always begin with “https://” rather than “https://” and if you are using one from a browser that recognizes SSL, you will generally also receive a preceding message and/or see a symbol, such as a lock, that signifies that you are on a secure page. Any information you enter on such a page is encrypted at your browser, sent over the public Internet in encrypted form, then de-encrypted at our servers.
If your browser doesn’t support SSL technology, you will receive an error message when trying to access our SSL page.
Once we receive your credit card information, it is accessible only to a small number of trusted Dalit Solidarity staff who have been specially trained in processing this information.
Most points on our site provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the point where we request contact information about the visitor. There are, however, a few places where users do not have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications. Should you wish to opt-out, please contact us or call 1-708-612-4248 and we will unsubscribe you from receiving further communications from us.
Users may also opt-out at any time by contacting us following the methods provided in the “modifying your information” section below.
