The Victim Center (TVC) is committed to respecting the privacy of donors. The types of donor information that it collects and maintains are as follows:
- Contact information: name, address, telephone number and email address
- Giving information: history, donation amount, and payment method
- Information on events attended, publications received and special requests for program information, and information provided by the donor in the form of comments and suggestions
TVC uses donors’ information to understand their interests in its mission and to update them on the organization’s plans and activities. TVC assures donors that their names and addresses will not be shared with any third party unless permission has been granted.
TVC is compliant with The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This is a set of requirements designed to ensure that ALL companies that process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. Essentially this includes any merchant that has a Merchant ID (MID).
TVC uses a third party payment processor, Evalon, Inc., to assist in securely processing your personally identifiable payment information, including recurring charges (if any). The credit card information that you provide is encrypted and transmitted directly to Evalon, Inc. TVC does not store credit card information online.
Personal Information You Choose to Provide
We may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information, including your email address, postal address, home or work telephone number and other personal information for correspondence purposes or helping with an online donation. If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.
