Profile Updates and Donations
The DCCCD Foundation has carefully implemented the information technology industry's best practices in security measures to ensure that:
- The information you entrust to us is not intercepted or abused
- To protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control
Industry standard technologies like Secure Socket Layers (SSL) are used to protect your credit card information, email address, and other information so it cannot be read as it travels on the Internet.
If you complete the profile update form or register for our online community and share your personally identifying information, this information will be used only to provide you with more targeted content. We may use your contact information to send further information about our organization or to contact you when necessary. You can always opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the "Opt Out" section below.
Opt-Out or Change Your Contact Information
Our site provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us through a special online form. You may choose to receive only specific communications or none at all. You may also update your contact information previously provided to us through our profile update form. You can not remove yourself from our database, but you can prevent unwanted communication.
Sending us an Email
You may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an electronic mail message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a web form that provides us this information.
We use personally identifying information from email primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your email to other employees who are better able to answer you questions. We may also use your email to contact you in the future about our programs that may be of interest.
If you sign up for one of our email lists, we will only send you the kinds of information you have requested. We won't share your name or email address with any outside parties.
