To process a donation, it is necessary for BFPA – or one of its third-party vendors – to gather the visitor’s name, email address, mailing address, phone, and credit card information. This data is used to verify identity and execute the financial transaction. Additionally, phone number and email address information may be used to contact visitors if there is a problem with the transaction.
Personal information collected to conduct financial transactions is kept private and secure and is not sold, rented, or traded to third parties. It is important to note that credit card numbers are used only at the time of the transaction and are not stored following the conclusion of the transaction unless a transaction is selected that occurs on a regular basis. For transactions that recur, the credit card information is stored in an encrypted format.

A note about Facebook Advertising: Like many non-profits, BFPA may use Facebook Advertising to target our supporters and prospective supporters with relevant content related to sexual and reproductive health and rights.

How We Secure Your Personal Information
We understand your concerns about safety and security and want to assure you that we make every effort to safeguard your information and privacy when you use our Platforms. BFPA further recognizes that the operation of the organization requires the maintenance and management of extensive donor and prospect records. Donor records often contain sensitive information that has been shared with or developed by BFPA staff on a confidential basis.
BFPA endeavours to protect your information through established and implemented physical, electronic, and managerial procedures and engaging third-party vendors that provide a secure and safe environment for the storage and processing of your credit card and personal information. For example, BFPA uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect against the loss, misuse, and unauthorized alteration of the information under our control.
To the extent any donations are processed through a third-party service provider, those providers are required to sign a confidentiality and privacy agreement, and our donors’ personal information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation. In addition, all staff are required to sign an employee confidentiality agreement which includes all donor-related information.
Please remember that the safety and security of your information also depend on you. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal or sensitive information transmitted to us and BFPA makes no representation or warranty that the Platforms are protected from viruses, security threats or other vulnerabilities. Any transmission of personal or sensitive information is at your own risk.
We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures we put in place for your protection. If you have concerns about the security of sensitive information, do not send it electronically.
