This donor privacy policy of Catching the Dream explains why we collect information from donors and how we protect their privacy on our website. Donors should contact CTD directly if they have any questions about these policies.

As the law or regulations dictate, CTD may change this policy from time to time. Any such changes will be posted on this website. Such changes will be dated and will be in effect as of the day of posting.
What information we collect. CTD maintains donor records on a database called “Raiser’s Edge” from Blackbaud. Our record forms ask donors to give us their name, address, phone, fax, and e-mail. They may provide other information such as occupation, interests, names of family members, employer, spouse information, and institutional
memberships. We do not ask for sensitive information such as social security numbers. Information on credit cards and bank account information will be stored in hard copy files only, and not on computer records.

All donor information is also stored in hard copy files in the CTD offices. These files are secured by lock and key as well as internal security. How we use information. We use donor information to maintain correspondence with donors. We also share address information only with other nonprofit organizations
on an occasional basis. Donors who do not wish to have their information shared should notify CTD to be placed in a “DO NOT SHARE” category.

Donor information so flagged will be eliminated automatically from information-sharing files. Security measures. Only authorized CTD personnel will have access to donor information. Outside individuals will not have access to the CTD donor database or hard copy files.

Other websites. CTD has contact with several hundred websites, list serves, college databases, scholarship providers, and data providers. None of these websites is linked directly to CTD, however. Donor information is not shared with these other sites. None
of them is linked directly to the CTD website.

Notification. CTD provides donors an annual notice via mail to inform us if they do not want their name and address shared with other organizations. This is provided on the donor response form that is sent with all mailings. Verification of information. Donors are encouraged to contact CTD any time to review their information in the CTD database and in hard copy files. CTD will respond
immediately to any requests for corrections, changes, and deletions.
