What information do we collect and how is it used?
When you make a donation or volunteer, the FoodBank may ask you for your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number as well as other relevant information such as hours available to volunteer or tasks you may be interested in performing.
When you visit our website, the Foodbank also collects some non-identifying basic information from server logs, including total number of visitors and pages viewed. We use this information to analyze site usage and to improve the content and design of the site.
The FoodBank may disclose aggregate statistics about donations, volunteers or orders to third parties, which do not include any personally identifying information. Examples of this include total number of donors, total amount of donations for specific periods, average gift size, total number of volunteers or volunteer hours etc.
The FoodBank uses personally identifiable information which you have provided about yourself to:
- Respond to your questions or comments about our services
- Fulfill requests to volunteer, conduct an event or a food drive
- Process your donation, verify your credit card, and send you a tax – deductible receipt
- To thank you
- To send you additional information about our programs, services and needs that we believe will interest you.
Unless you ask that your gift remain anonymous, we list:
- Individual donors who contribute more than $1,000 annually on our donor wall
- Corporate donors who contribute more than $2,500 on our donor wall, in our newsletter, in our Annual Report or on our website, depending on level of giving
