Urban Ministries of Durham, Inc (“UMD”) is committed to respecting the privacy of its financial and in-kind donors, whether the donation is made online, by mail, or any other method. When you make a financial or in-kind donation, you provide your name and contact information. Financial donors provide standard payment information including, in many circumstances, credit card data. We are committed to protecting your information in a variety of ways, including by using encryption, access controls, firewalls, and physical security.
UMD has 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 UMD operations. To the extent any donations are processed through a third-party service provider, our donors’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation.
(https://umdurham.org/privacy-policy/). In addition, we will not send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations.
Importantly, donors have the option to have their name publicly associated with their donation or to remain anonymous. Donors must specifically request to remain anonymous. Donors also may opt out of UMD retaining their information. For more details on opting out, please email [email protected]
