Donor Privacy Policy

We have created this statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy.

We respect your privacy and safeguard your personal information and giving history with highly sophisticated encryption and safeguards. At times we use your contact information to notify you about events or activities we think you may be interested in. You are free to unsubscribe from such notifications at any time by emailing emailupdates@cjh.org, calling 212.294.8310 or indicating this on any piece of physical mail you send us – we can update both your electronic and physical mail preferences through this address.

Deliberately chosen organizations that have information or activities that we think could be of interest to individuals on our mailing list are infrequently accepted for an exchange of distribution lists. The capacity to share this information is a cost effective way we can expand out supporter base. If you prefer that we do not include your name when we exchange with other organizations you may email emailupdates@cjh.org, call 212.294.8310 or mark this preference on any piece of physical mail you send to us.

When vendors are given access to donor information, for example information credit card information or a printer who was retained to print and mail material, they are contractually bound to keep the information confidential and safe. Safeguards are in place that would make any interception of this information very difficult.  The safeguards in place are both electronic (secure logins, firewalls…etc) as well as physical –strict access restrictions. If you have any questions or concerns about the donor privacy policy feel free to email development@cjh.org
