Donor Privacy Policy

Deaf Services Center (DSC) values the trust of its donors and other stakeholders place in the organization and adhere to the highest standards in gathering, using and safeguarding their information.  We do not rent, sell or trade donor information to any third parties outside of DSC.

Your Information

The information you or your employer provide to us is used to help us to process and receipt your donation and to respond to any of your requests. We also use your information to send acknowledgment of your gift information and to provide information about our work which we think you may find of interest. If you do not wish to receive such communications, you may let us know at any time by contacting the DSC office. In addition, e-mail messages you receive from DSC will include instructions on how to unsubscribe.

DSC educates our employees and volunteers on the importance of protecting the privacy and security of confidential personal and organizational information. Organizations that provide operational or other support services to us must also agree to safeguard your information in strict compliance with our Privacy Policy.

We do not provide donor information to third parties except under the following conditions:

Designations if a portion of your donation is directed to a specific program within DSC that is supported or sponsored by another agency, we may provide your name, your contact information, the amount of your donation and your workplace to that agency. If you do not want this to occur, please indicate on your pledge form that you wish to remain anonymous. Although we encourage agencies to set high privacy standards, we do not control their policies, and we, therefore, cannot take responsibility for their use of donor contact information.

There are times when we publicly recognize and thank donors, volunteers and other stakeholders for their generosity.  If you prefer to remain anonymous, please indicate this when completing your pledge form.

In order to maintain cost-effectiveness and continue to provide a high level of donor service, selected third parties (ie:  data processing, pledge card scanning or mailing firms) conduct processing duties on our behalf. These companies enter into strict confidentiality agreements and agree not to keep information on file after the contract has been completed.

DSC will release information when we are required to comply with the law.
