Privacy Policy

This web site is owned and managed by Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services. PCHAS  is concerned about the privacy of donors and individuals who express interest in this ministry, as well as the privacy of our clients, volunteers, foster parents, and employees. The following Privacy Policy applies to all gifts, whether on-line or off-line.

General Non-profit Privacy Policy Principles

Collection of Personal Information

1. We will not sell, share or trade our donors’ names or personal information with any other entity, nor send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations.

2. We request and use only that information required for legitimate business purposes.

3. We protect the confidentiality of all personal information in our records.

4. We permit only authorized employees and pre-screened volunteers to access the information they need to perform their duties.

With Regard to Donors and Individuals Who Express Interest in this Ministry

You provide us with most of the information we need when you make a gift or request information about PCHAS’ ministry. This includes your name, current address, phone numbers, and e-mail address. Credit card and bank account information is only collected when you choose to make a charitable gift by one of these methods. Online communication is not necessarily secure. If you are concerned about the privacy of your message, we encourage you to use a different method to communicate with us.

Our records may contain information we develop and maintain based upon our experiences with you, such as your contributions and other history with this ministry.

We adhere to the Donor Bill of Rights created by the American Association of Fundraising Counsel and other fundraising associations.

You have the right, by notifying us at any time, to opt out from receiving communications from PCHAS. Please include your complete name and address.

With Regard to the PCHAS Website

We do not obtain personal information about you when you visit our website unless you voluntarily choose to provide the information to us. This occurs when you send us an e-mail or submit an online form. These communication methods are not necessarily secure. If you are concerned about the privacy of your message, we encourage you to use a different method to communicate with us.

Our web server automatically compiles conventional log files that we use to monitor website activity. These logs do not identify any individual user. This site contains links to other sites. PCHAS is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. For example, we provide a link to Blackbaud on our “Donate” page to facilitate online donations. You can access Blackbaud’s Privacy Policy from their home page.
