dZi Foundation Donor Information Privacy Policy

The dZi Foundation is committed to protecting donor privacy. This Privacy Policy is designed to help donors and other members of the public understand how dZi Foundation protects donor information both online and offline. The donor information dZi gathers either online of offline is maintained in a restricted-access database and is not sold or distributed to third parties in any way. dZi does not share or sell any donor information with anyone else, nor do we use donor information to send mailings on behalf of any other organizations.

Collection and Use of Personal Donor Information

Online, at www.dzi.org (this “Site”), we have developed our Site so that donors may visit it without providing their name, email address or similar personal information. We collect personally identifying data about donors, such as name, address and e-mail address, when donors provide such data to us voluntarily, whether online or offline. Regardless of whether we receive donor information online or offline, we store these data in a secure manner in a restricted-access database, and use this information strictly for activities directly related to the support of our mission and operations. We do not sell or rent any donor data to any third parties for any reason.

Caveat: We may need to disclose certain donor information if such disclosure is deemed necessary to (a) take action regarding suspected illegal activities; (b) comply with legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order; or (c) protect our rights, reputation, personal safety and property, or those of our donors, other users, affiliates or the public.

Information You Provide About Others

Do not provide or allow others to provide personal information about anyone unless you, on your own behalf and on behalf of anyone whose information you provide: (a) have reviewed and agree with this Privacy Policy, and (b) are authorized to and do consent to have all data used and transferred internationally.  By submitting any personal information about others you represent and warrant that you received such authorization beforehand.

 Third Party Sites

Our Site contains links to other websites. These websites are governed by their own terms of use and privacy policies, which you should read.
