Privacy policy

Origins First 1000 Days Foundation maintains the highest level of respect for the privacy of its supporters and donors. It is committed to safeguarding your privacy. The following explains our donor privacy policy, and guides our staff on how they may and may not use your personal information while honoring your rights as a contributor.

Making a Donation

When you make a donation to Origins First 1000 Days Foundation (the "Foundation"), we collect personal information such as your name, billing address, and email address. This personally identifiable information is used to acknowledge receipt of your donation for tax purposes and possibly to include you on the Foundation email mailing list unless you elect to be removed from that list. When you send a donation in honor or in memory of someone and request that an acknowledgement be sent to another individual or a family, we will use the name and address of that individual or family for acknowledgement purposes only. Donor information is also used in our development process to analyze overall giving patterns in order to make accurate budget projections. All financial information is kept confidential and secure. Access to a specific gift amount is limited to Foundation professional staff and board.

Credit Card Payments

Credit card or bank account numbers are collected by third-party payment vendors such as VeriSign and/or PayPal. The use of this information is based on the policies and procedures of the applicable third-party payment vendors, and not this Privacy Policy. Origins First 1000 Days Foundation will not collect or have access to any complete credit card numbers or bank account information our third-party vendors collect to process online transactions.

Disclosure of Personal Information

Except as otherwise expressly noted in this Privacy Policy, Origins First 1000 Days Foundation will not (1) disclose your personal information without your consent, unless we need to respond to a subpoena, court order or legal process, or (2) share your personal information with third parties by selling, giving, trading or any other method.

Links to Other Websites

Other websites, including links to other websites that appear on from time to time, have their own privacy policies. When you provide personal information at any one of those sites, you are subject to the privacy policy of the operator of that site, and not this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to read each such privacy policy before submitting any personal information.

Privacy Policy Updates

Our privacy policy is reviewed from time to time to make sure we continue to serve the privacy interests of our donors. If our information practices change materially, we will post the policy changes on the privacy page of this website to notify you of these changes. Please check our website periodically for more information on how we use the data we collect.
