Privacy Policy

Secure Policy Protection for Your Personal Information

We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of our donors and visitors to Green Empowerment’s (GE) website. Outlined below is GE’s privacy policy (Policy). In particular, by donating through GE’s website, you consent to this Policy.

Green Empowerment collects personal information associated with making donations to GE including name, telephone number, physical address, and e-mail address – as provided by the donor. By using this site to donate, you agree that GE may collect any information you disclose on the donation form. You further agree that GE may maintain and use this information for purposes that are necessary and relevant to GE’s operations or for the purpose of communicating with our donors and interested parties as necessary and appropriate. GE does not retain personal credit card numbers as a secure third party provider processes online credit card transactions. GE staff does not have access to credit card information entered via the website. Any credit card information provided in writing is utilized as instructed by the donor and immediately destroyed.

GE does not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personal information to outside parties. GE may also release your information when GE believes the release is appropriate to comply with law, enforce our site policies, or to protect the property, safety, or rights of GE or others.

As a matter of policy, GE will not sell or disclose personal information regarding our donors or subscribers to any commercial entities or marketing firms. We do on occasion publically acknowledge our donors in GE publications such as the annual report. Donors may always request that their donations remain anonymous by contacting GE at info@greenempowerment.org or checking the designated box on donation envelopes or forms.

GE will take all reasonable steps to protect its users’ personal information and to protect them from unwanted correspondence or solicitation resulting from contact with GE. However, we must remind you that transmissions made via the Internet can never be absolutely secure. Our Policy can only apply to information collected online through the www.greenempowerment.org website. GE may have links to outside websites that GE does not control. GE is not responsible for the content or privacy policies of those sites. You are not legally required to supply personal information requested on GE’s website. You may prefer other methods to donate such as using one of our donation envelopes or the mailing address listed on the website.
