Online Profile Updates and Donations

If you make a donation and/or submit User Profile information to Physicians for Peace, the personally identifying information you provide to us will be used only to provide you with more targeted content. Physicians for Peace will never trade, share or sell your personal donor information, whether collected online or offline, without direct consent from the individual to any person or external agency. We may use your contact information to send further information about our organization or to contact you when necessary. You may always opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the "Opt Out" section below.

Sending us an Email

You also may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an electronic mail message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a Web form that provides us this information. We use personally identifying information from email primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your email to other employees who are better able to answer your questions. We may also use your email to contact you in the future about our programs that may be of interest.

We want to be very clear: We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. Except as might be required by law, we do not share any information we receive with any outside parties. If you sign up for one of our email lists, we will only send you the kinds of information you have requested. We won't trade, share or sell your name or email address with any outside parties.

Kids and Privacy

For children who visit our site, special rules apply. We do not request personal information about children, such as first and last name or street address and city. When kids send email to us, their online contact information (email address) is not used to re-contact them and is not maintained in retrievable form.

Opt-Out or Change Your Contact Information

Our links provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us through a special online form. You may choose to receive only specific communications or none at all. You may also update your contact information previously provided to us through another online form. You can not remove yourself from our database, but you can prevent unwanted communication.

Security of your Personal Information

Your confidential information and personal privacy is extremely important to us. Physicians for Peace protects the information you provide when making a donation on our website by employing Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), the industry standard for Internet security, to an encrypted connection between your computer and our web server. When you provide credit card information to make a donation, this standard scrambles data as it travels from your computer to our server. You can tell that you are in a secure area of our Web site when a “lock” icon appears on your screen and the “http” portion of our URL address changes to “https.” While no website can guarantee security, we maintain appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information collected via the website. Inside Physicians for Peace, we employ numerous security controls and follow secure processes in order to protect the information in our volunteer and donor databases, and restrict access to your information to authorized persons only. All Physicians for Peace employees are advised about their responsibility to protect customer data and we provide them with appropriate guidelines for adhering to our organization's ethics standards and confidentiality policies.
