This Policy applies to all PII regarding donors received by the Foundation, both online and offline, on any platform, and through any electronic, written, or oral communications. By donating to the Foundation, you agree to be legally bound by this Policy.

When you make a donation to the Foundation, the Foundation collects PII voluntarily provided by you. PII may include, but is not limited to, your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, credit or debit card information, and bank information.

It is your choice to provide PII. You do not need to disclose more PII than is requested.

You should not provide PII about others unless you are expressly authorized to do so.

We may receive PII about you from other sources, including your company/organization, publicly-available sources, third-party analytics providers, and other third parties.

Use and Disclosure of Information

The Foundation will use your PII to complete your donation, and for the limited purposes set forth below.

The Foundation will not share your PII with any third parties, unless it is necessary:

  • To support the Foundation’s mission. Specifically, we may share your PII with our employees, agents, subsidiaries and affiliated entities, and certain third parties, such as contractors and service providers that need access to such information to carry out work on our behalf, including to:

    • respond to your requests;

    • process donations or merchandise orders; and

    • send newsletters, surveys, notices or content.

  • To comply with the Foundation’s donor disclosure obligations (as described below);

  • To change website hosts or when our host transfers business assets (as described below); and

  • To comply with the law and regulations, court orders, subpoenas or other legal demands.

The Foundation will not sell, rent, or exchange your PII, unless you give the Foundation specific permission to do so.

Your Right to Control Your Personally Identifying Information

If you want to give the Foundation permission to sell, rent, or exchange your PII, you may opt-in by emailing us at [email protected], or mailing us a letter addressed to Clinton Foundation, 1633 Broadway, New York, NY 10019.

Transfer of Business Assets

At any time, the Sites’ web host may be acquired, merge with another organization or acquire or buy other businesses or assets. In such transactions, PII may be among the transferred assets.

Our Commitment to Data Security

PII is stored on the servers of certain third-party service providers.  Such service providers are required to use best practices to maintain the confidentiality of your PII, consistent with this Policy. Additionally, service providers may only use your PII for the purpose of providing services to us.  Sensitive data such as credit card numbers are encrypted and tokenized using SSL and other industry standard measures to provide an additional level of security.

The transmission of information via the Internet can never be completely secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to our Sites and any such transmission is at your own risk.

We take steps to protect the safety of your PII. The Sites have security measures in place to help protect loss, misuse, or alteration of such information under our control. However, we cannot guarantee the security of your PII, and we do not assume any liability for third party use of your PII, whether obtained legally or illegally from or through our Sites.

Third-Party Websites

Donations may be made through third-party websites. This Policy does not apply to any third-party websites. The Foundation is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of any third-party websites.  We encourage you to review the privacy and other online policies of other websites that you use to submit donations.

Children

The Foundation does not seek to collect any information from children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect PII from children. If you become aware of any PII we have collected from a child, please email us at [email protected] or mail us a letter addressed to Clinton Foundation, 1633 Broadway, New York, NY 10019. If we learn that we have collected PII from a child, we will take steps to delete the data without notice as soon as possible.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

The Foundation may update this Policy at any time.  Any changes to the Policy will be reflected on this “Donor Privacy Policy” page, and by continuing to donate to the Foundation, you agree to those changes.  We may also notify you about significant changes in the way we treat PII via email or by placing a prominent notice on our Sites.
