Interfaith Outreach collects and uses personal information from donors that includes: name, address, telephone number, email address and donor comments when a donor voluntarily provides it. In addition, Interfaith Outreach keeps a record of each donor’s giving history.

We will not sell, license, transmit or disclose your personal information outside of Interfaith Outreach unless (1) you expressly authorize us to do so, (2) it is necessary to allow our partner service providers, representatives, or agents to serve you or us, (3) it is necessary to provide you access to our events, activities, products or services, (4) it is necessary to protect and defend the rights or property of Interfaith Outreach, (5) it is necessary to act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Interfaith Outreach stakeholders, visitors to Interfaith Outreach’s website or the public, or (6) otherwise as we are required or permitted by law.

On occasion, Interfaith Outreach may share your personal information with our vendors and other partners that help us with our activities and programs, including sending postal mail and processing donations and event registration. These vendors and other partners are bound by strict confidentiality rules and are permitted to use the personal information only to support Interfaith Outreach operations.
