Donor Privacy Policy

Delaware Newsline collects and maintains the following type of donor information:

• Contact Information: name, address, telephone number, email address

• Giving History: gift amount, date, any gift restrictions requested by the donor

• Information on events attended, publications received, any special requests for program information, and other data points that may allow us to better server your interests

• All information is confidential and kept on file for IRS purposes. Information is also used to analyze giving patterns in order to make accurate budget projections. Credit card numbers are used only for donation or payment processing and are not retained for other purposes.

Delaware Newsline will use confidential donor information for the following purposes:

• Distributing donation receipts

• Sending thank you letters to donors

• Internal analysis and record keeping

• Contacting donors about changes in policy

Use and Disclosure of your Personal Information:

• We will not sell, share or trade your personal information with other entities without your permission.

• We may collect your name, email address, telephone number and payment information when you make a contribution, either on our website, over the phone, at an event or by mailing in a check, or by other written or spoken forms of communication.

• To the extent any donations are processed through a third-party service provider, our donors’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation.

• We will use the personal information to protect against potential fraud. We may verify with third parties the information collected in the course of processing a gift.

• We publicly recognize certain types and levels of donors by publishing names in our Annual Report, on our website and in other publications, unless a donor explicitly requests to remain anonymous. Donors may contact us to request that they not be included in such publications.

Security and enforcement:

Delaware Newsline protects your personal information from loss, misuse, alteration or unauthorized disclosure by requiring employees with access to personal data to comply with our privacy policy. Although we operate secure data network protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems, all donations received are originated from an off-site location.
Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our donors.

We reserve the right to change this Donor Privacy Policy. When we do, we will note the date of the last update at the bottom of the policy. If you have questions about this Donor Privacy Policy, or if you wish to be removed from our contact lists, please contact info@delawarenewsline.com.
