Your Privacy is Not For Sale
Simply put, we do not and will not sell your personal information to anyone, for any reason, at any time
Commitment to Your Privacy
At Independent Charitable Gift Fund (iGiftFund) we’re committed to respecting and safeguarding the privacy of potential donors, current donors, and all others associated with a charitable account. Explore this policy to learn what kind of information we collect, and how we use and share that information.
Safeguarding Your Information, Maintaining Your Trust
We take precautions to ensure the information we capture about you is protected and is accessed only by authorized individuals or organizations. Companies we use to provide support services are not allowed to use information about a Donor for their own purposes and are contractually obligated to maintain strict confidentiality. We limit their use of information to the performance of the specific services we have requested.
We restrict access to personal information by our employees and agents. Our employees are trained about privacy and are required to safeguard personal information.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect personal information.
Teaming Up Against Identity Theft
Identity theft is a serious concern to all of us. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is our priority. We take steps to protect you from identity theft by:
- utilizing Donor Party identification and authentication procedures before initiating transactions;
- creating a secure transmission connection to our Web Site. You will see the padlock in the lower right corner of your browser’s frame indicating it is a secure site; and,
- ensuring our employees are trained to safeguard personal information about you.
You can also help protect your identity and accounts. Here are a few steps to remember:
- We will never request your account number, login password, or Social Security number in either a non-secure or unsolicited email communication.
- Be sure to shred documents that contain personal information.
- Check your credit report regularly for unauthorized activity and protect your personal identification numbers (PINs) or personal data.
