Privacy Policy

SUNFLOWER HOUSE Privacy Policy

Sunflower House respects and maintains the privacy of our constituents and donors.  We do not rent, sell, or exchange our mailing list or donor list to any other entity.

 

What does Sunflower House do with donor personal and financial information?

Besides keeping donor personal and financial information safe and secure, the personal information donors provide, such as e-mail addresses and telephone numbers, is used by Sunflower House staff only to ensure accurate, timely processing of transactions or donations.  Everything else is kept confidential, and Sunflower House will remove any information from its digital and paper files upon written request of the donor.

 

What information do we collect?

Sunflower House collects personal information when you communicate with us online, register for a training, make a donation, or request for information.  We collect personal information we receive offline when you volunteer, donate, participate in our events or share your contact information with us. We may collect information such as your name, age, gender, personal or business address, occupation, e-mail address, phone number and credit card details that you provide both online and offline.

 

How do we use your information?

We use your personal information to contact you with news items that may interest you and opportunities to volunteer or donate.  We also use it to register you to participate in our events or professional education programs, to respond to specific questions you may have, to honor requests for brochures or newsletters, to deliver products, and to process and track payments and donations made.

 

How do we protect your information?

In keeping with our mission and values of good stewardship, Sunflower House implements a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you make a gift, register for a training or event, or submit your personal information.

Sunflower House uses secure third-party intermediaries to process financial transactions from our website, events, or pledges: PayPal, Square mobile app, or Donor Perfect, our database management system.  All supplied sensitive information is encrypted into these payment gateway provider databases only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.  After the gift transaction, your private information is destroyed, and we do not keep sensitive financial data on file, digitally or on paper, unless you have authorized us to process recurring donations.  Signed pledge cards are the only written documents maintained, and they are secured in a locked safe.

Those who choose to register through various “guestbook”-type features on our website may choose to give us certain contact information, such as their email address.  These features may also request optional demographic information, such as zip code, age or income level.  Unless you “opt out” we may use this contact or voluntarily provided information to send you additional information about Sunflower House and our programs.  You may readily opt-out of receiving future communications.

Sunflower House does not share your information with third parties outside the organization without your consent.  We will, when required, disclose personal information in response to subpoenas, court orders or other legal process, to law enforcement agencies for the purpose of investigating any activities that we believe, in good faith, to be unlawful, or to any successor in interest as a result of a merger or re-organization or by operation of law.

Please be aware that personal information that you may disclose in message boards, blogs, or on at our social networking sites may be visible to anyone visiting those sites and may be collected and used by third parties.

 

How can you opt out?

To limit our communications with you or to opt-out, please email us at info@sunflowerhouse.org, call (913) 631-5800, or go to our contact us page. If you receive an email from Sunflower House and would like to be removed from the distribution list, you can unsubscribe at the bottom of the email.
