EngenderHealth collects information about you via our website, through the mail, by phone including mobile devices, or in person (such as at an event). This information may be information that you directly provide to us, such as information you provide while donating, or information that is passively or automatically collected, such as information collected from your browser or device.
The types of donor information that we collect and maintain when provided by you are:
- contact information: name, organization/company, complete address, phone number, email address
- donation information: amounts donated, date of donation(s), method and stimulus
- your requests and comments
- survey responses
This information is used for communications with you, for financial record keeping and reporting and for marketing purposes to raise awareness of EngenderHealth and our mission.
Credit card numbers are NOT retained once processed.
How Information is Used
EngenderHealth uses your data to maintain records of donations, send acknowledgements, mail year-end tax statements to you, send newsletters, notices, direct mail pieces, and for marketing purposes.
EngenderHealth works with vendors who provide services such as software to store and maintain a backup of our donor database and other, often administrative services. We may provide such third parties with encrypted donor information in order for them to provide their service to us. We limit such service providers to using donor information, including financial information that is shared with them solely for the purpose of providing such services and in full confidentiality. The vendors do not have access to the content of our donor files and are contractually prohibited from transferring information elsewhere. Although EngenderHealth has chosen vendors with a reputation for security, we are not responsible for their security.
Upon communicating with EngenderHealth by mail or email, your contact information is added to our mailing list, unless otherwise requested through one of the means below. Your contact information is not automatically stored by a mere visit to our website.
EngenderHealth is reliant on support from the community to grow our donor base and replace attrition. From time-to-time, EngenderHealth participates in exchanges of supporter or donor information with like-minded organizations and shares or rents such information with the service providers that facilitate such exchanges.
Requesting Removal from Our List
Supporters or donors who wish to be removed from our mailing list, who wish to only receive limited amounts of communication (e.g. only annually or only or newsletter, etc.), or who do not wish their information to be shared can opt-out by checking a box on the donation form or by contacting us:
Phone: (202) 902-2022
505 9th Street NW, Suite 601
Washington, DC 20004
EngenderHealth DOES NOT list individual donor names in ANY of our publications without express permission to do so. Corporate and Foundation supporters may be listed in our Annual Report and event programs, unless otherwise requested. We use your written comments/letters occasionally to post on our website (in an anonymous fashion, unless otherwise permitted), and to respond to your inquiries. Donations over 2% of our entire budget must be reported on IRS Form 990, Schedule B.
