The Data We Collect

Our website provides convenient ways for you to access our services and learn about our mission. We collect information about our online visitors from our visitors. We use this information to communicate with our supporters, visitors, and clients and process their transactions. We do not sell or transfer it to other persons or organizations.

When you use our website to make a contribution, register for a service, sign up to volunteer, apply for a job, or otherwise contact us, we may ask you for your name, address, phone number(s), and other information relevant to the transaction. We will ask for standard credit card information when you make a financial donation.

We also collect non-personal information about our online visitors using "cookies", pixels, web beacons, and other technologies that operate automatically when you visit our website. We use this information to give our website visitors a more relevant online experience and to help us make website improvements. The information helps us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our online visitors are going, and how long they spend there. If you do not want us to collect information using cookies, you can disable this function in your browser. If you block cookies from us, however, you may not be able to see personalized content and our website may not function optimally.

We Respect Your Privacy

We use a variety of security measures to protect your data. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to help prevent unauthorized access to and improper use of personally identifiable information.

Deaf Blindness Help, Inc. is committed to respecting the privacy of its donors, whether the donation is made online, by mail, or any other method. When you make a donation, you provide your name and contact information. Donors provide standard payment information including, in many circumstances, credit card data. We protect your information in a variety of ways, as described below.

We protect the security of credit card transactions using a number of measures such as encryption, access controls, network firewalls, and physical security. These measures make it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept the credit card information you send to us. When we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, those companies also use encryption and other appropriate security measures.

We will not sell, share, or trade our donors' personally identifiable information with any other entity. In addition, we will not send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations. Deaf Blindness Help, Inc. uses vendors that assist with processing and managing donations and donor data. We give these vendors access to donor data. Our vendors are bound by strict confidentiality rules and are permitted to use donor data only to support our operations. No website or electronic data can ever be completely secure, but we are always working to maintain up-to-date and appropriate security mechanisms.
