Donor Privacy Policy

The Cystic Fibrosis Project Inc. (CFP) maintains the highest level of respect for the privacy of its donors. The following privacy policy describes our practices for the collection, use and protection of information pertaining to its donors.

How Donor Information is Used

Donor information is used to complete a transaction, generate gift receipts and communicate with the donor as to our updates and events. Donor records are also used for internal analysis, record keeping and reporting to relevant U.S. and State agencies. Credit card numbers are used at the point of sale for donation or payment processing and are not retained for any reason.

No Sharing of Personal Information

CFP does not rent, market or otherwise disclose donor information to any outside party or vendor for non-CFP purposes, unless required under law. Within the CFP, access to donor information is limited to areas of Development staff members with a need to know, and, as appropriate, with those in our Finance Department.

CFP will share contact information with third-party vendors for the explicit and limited purpose of facilitating our mission through development and engagement programs. When such contact information is shared with the third-party vendor, the vendor will first be required to sign a written agreement pledging that the information will be used only for its intended purpose; will be stored securely; and will not be resold or provided to any other individual, entity or organization.

Persons with responsibility for records containing personal information will exercise due care to ensure accuracy and completeness. Strict physical, electronic and procedural safeguards will be utilized to protect personal information against accidental or intentional misuse or improper disclosure within or without GUW.

Donor Recognition

Donor contributions may be publicized in donor recognition vehicles produced by the CFP, including print, spoken and/or web-based media. If donors do not wish their names to appear in these venues, they may notify us by email to
