The Giving Plate, Inc. (TGP) respects the privacy of our donors, prospective donors, and website visitors.  All personal information from or concerning those people is kept strictly confidential by paid staff and volunteers unless the donors or prospective donors grant permission to use the information.  Personal information includes names and addresses, nature and value of prospective or past gifts, employers, business addresses, credit card numbers, social security numbers, email addresses, etc.  All electronic data is stored securely, and only trusted individuals are granted access. Online donations are processed by Stripe, a trusted financial storage and online transaction company.

TGP does not sell, rent, or transmit personal information to other organizations unless we have formed a partnership to enhance services we offer and we have received prior assurances that the organization will comply with TGP’s privacy policy.

TGP may use personal information, with permission, for referral, testimonial, or example.  Information may also be used to conduct business transactions such as processing online donations, responding to information requests, and customizing fundraising procedures.

TGP does not collect any personal information via its website.  Unless a person calls, faxes, or emails TGP and identifies himself or herself, TGP is unaware of the person’s identity. TGP may, however, collect standard aggregate data such as pages visited and files downloaded, in order to improve the functionality of the website and to report to grantors.  Such information is not linked to individual donors.

Donors, prospective donors, and others may receive correspondence from TGP after submitting a donation or other communication through TGP’s website.  Such persons may opt out of future communications by contacting us.

The privacy of donors, prospective donors, website visitors, and members of the general public is important to TGP.  To update personal information or ask questions about TGP’s privacy statement, please contact us.
