How the Dana Foundation, a private philanthropy, protects your privacy
We at The Dana Foundation believe that anyone who visits our website has the right to remain anonymous.
Accordingly, we do not collect any personal information about you without your informed consent. If you do not want us to know your identity or anything about your interests, you are never the less welcome to the information available onscreen on our site.
If you choose to sign up to participate in an online survey, you are assured that your voluntary identification will not be shared for any marketing purpose.
We do use mailing houses and third-party email automation services for distribution of our newsletters, but we [have an agreement with] these mailing houses and third parties not to use our lists for any secondary purpose. The Dana Foundation does not sell, trade, lend or rent, or give your name and address or any other personally identifiable information about you to anyone. If you supply us with any information, you may direct us to delete it at any time.
Please be aware that our site contains links to many other sites that may not be as stringent as the Dana Foundation is about guarding your identity. We cannot be responsible for their practices. When you leave our site to link to another, we urge you to examine the stated policy of every other site for assurance that no personally identifiable information about you can be collected or shared without your consent.
We urge parents to tell their children to never give out names, addresses or phone numbers, without permission, when using the Internet.
Ours is the most privacy-protective policy we can devise while retaining the ability to respond to your requests. If you have questions about it, or suggestions to further protect visitors like you, please contact us. If we want to use the information you have given us in a different way, we will contact you by e-mail and ask permission first.
Our Guiding Privacy Principles:
- You have the right to remain anonymous.
- You can rest assured that the Dana Foundation will do nothing with information you send us beyond its specific purpose without your consent.
