The CHEST Foundation is committed to privacy and data security for its financial and in‑kind donors.
CHEST Foundation reserves the right to make changes to this Donor Policy at any time; in such case, CHEST Foundation will post a notice that this Donor Policy has been modified by revising the “last reviewed” date at the bottom of this Donor Policy.
Donations to CHEST Foundation may be made online, by mail, and by many other methods. When you make a financial or in-kind donation, you provide your personal and/or corporate information, including your name and other demographics.
We use industry-standard safeguards to protect your information. Many donors use credit cards for donations. CHEST Foundation does not disclose the credit card account information or activity of its donors. When donors pay using credit cards, CHEST Foundation submits this information encrypted to obtain payment from the appropriate clearinghouse. Credit card numbers are never stored in CHEST Foundation databases. CHEST Foundation auto-pay via credit card uses token technology, and credit card numbers are not stored.
CHEST Foundation will not send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations unless a donor has given us specific permission to do so.
CHEST Foundation uses third-party party vendors to assist with some financial processing and data management. We give these vendors access to donor data only for specific purposes. Our vendors are bound by strict confidentiality rules and are only permitted to use data to support CHEST Foundation-specified activities.
If a CHEST Foundation donation is processed through a third-party vendor or service, then the donor information will only be used to successfully process the donation.
