Donor Privacy

YouthLink may collect and store personally identifiable information (including, but not limited to: name, address, telephone number and email address) that you have provided to us when you contact us in person, by phone or email, with a question.  We collect your name, email address and other contact information if you register for an event.  We also collect your name, email address, telephone number and payment information when you make a contribution, either on our website, at a special event, over the phone or by mailing in a check.  The above list provides a sample of personal information that may be collected by YouthLink. This information may be utilized to send donor acknowledgements, additional mailings, and/or solicitations.

Periodically YouthLink publishes lists of individuals and organizations that have supported it through contributions of cash or cash equivalents, goods or services, or volunteer time. YouthLink will provide all donors an opportunity to state that they prefer to remain anonymous and will make every reasonable effort to comply with the donor’s request.

YouthLink will follow appropriate practices to ensure that all contribution transactions are conducted in a secure manner and that all data related to donors is stored securely. Access to donor information will be limited to the Executive Director, Development Department staff, designated individuals in the Finance Department and designated on-site consultants. YouthLink will not sell, rent, trade or share donor-related data with any third-party person or organization.

Discontinue Contact Policy

Individuals and organizations may request, verbally or in writing, to have their names, postal addresses and email addresses removed from solicitation lists and other lists.
