At the American Indian College Fund, we value your support and we are committed to protecting your privacy. Our site is a secure environment for anyone who visits, makes a donation or purchases products. The purpose of this statement is to share with you our policy concerning your privacy.
When you visit our site, we collect some non-identifying basic information. This includes total number of visitors, pages viewed and other non-identifying information. We use this aggregate information to improve our site and to make your experience on our website as smooth as possible.
On-line Donation Forms
We do not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. When you request information or donate, for example, we may collect the following information: first and last name, street address, city, state, zip code, telephone number, email address, subject of inquiry and payment information. If you complete the Profile update form or make a donation on our web site with personally identifying information, we may use your contact information to send further information about our organization to you or to contact you when necessary. You may always opt out of receiving future mailings; see the “Opt Out” section below.
The information you transmit to us on this site travels by encryption. The companies we work with to process your online donation payments and product purchases also use encryption and security protocols. The information you provide is stored in a secure location, and is accessible only by designated employees trained in the proper handling of customer information.
We do not collect personally identifiable information unless you provide it to us knowingly and voluntarily.
Your information is privileged and confidential and will not be shared or released to any organization or business entity other than those affiliated with or working in conjunction with the American Indian College Fund. We occasionally make our constituent names and postal addresses available to other reputable organizations. We have found this to be the most cost-effective method of increasing our database of potential supporters and hope that you value the information they send you. Your name is only available to these carefully screened organizations for a limited time. Other organizations will not have continued access to your name and address unless you choose to respond to their initial mailing. We do not share e-mail addresses.
We respect your privacy and allow you to restrict internal and external sharing of your personal information. We recognize that you may wish to limit the ways in which we contact you. When you make a donation, you can request that the College Fund not share your contact information with other non-profit organizations, that we not contact you or share your information with anyone or that we only contact you once a year.
If you have any questions, please contact the American Indian College Fund at firstname.lastname@example.org . All reasonable efforts will be taken to ensure that your privacy requests are honored. If you do not wish to opt out when making an on-line donation, you may do so at a later date should you so desire. You cannot remove yourself from our database, but you can prevent unwanted communication. You can review your personal contact information or make corrections or changes at any time by contacting the American Indian College Fund at (303) 426-8900 or by e-mail at email@example.com.

How We Provide a Secure Environment for On-line Transactions
The American Indian College Fund's on-line processing system allows you to make secure donations and purchases. We use the latest encryption technology to insure that no one can read your information as it travels to our system.
Our on-line credit card verification system is handled by a third party, which collects your name, address, phone, and credit card number and expiration date in order to process your transaction. Their encryption technology offers a secure technology to insure the confidentiality of your transactions.
