SUMMARY FOR SKIMMERS:
Outreach is staffed by honest, honorable people whose commitment to our shared mission and honoring our donors is as unshakable as it is unfailing. We’ll never share your info with third parties. Any information we collect is kept in-house, and only used to ensure that your experience is frictionless and your impact on the world is monumental. Outreach exists thanks to the trust of our donors and our community partners, and we promise to continue that tradition until the erosion of the continents.
It is the policy of Outreach International that personal information such as your name, postal and email addresses, telephone number, credit card number, donation details, etc. is private and confidential. Accordingly, the personal information you provide is stored in a secure location, accessible only by designated staff, and is used only for the purpose for which you provided the information (such as to reply to your request or to handle your donation payment).
For example, when you make a donation, the personal information you provide will be used to process your donation. Outreach International may also use your information for future communications with you regarding donations. Personal information will not be released to third parties except to further the purpose for which you provided the information such as sending your credit card information to our bank for processing of your donation, or seeking expert opinion from advisors regarding a gift planning intent you may have indicated or if release is required by law or is pertinent to judicial or governmental investigations or proceedings.
