Donor Privacy Policy

EarthShare Georgia values and respects its donors’ right to privacy. It affirms that its fundraising practices protect against unauthorized use of its contributor lists, and permits no general telephone solicitation of the public.

EarthShare Georgia utilizes donors’ personal information such as names, mailing addresses and email addresses only for purposes of donor acknowledgement and/or when an individual voluntarily provides this information and opts to join our mailing list. EarthShare Georgia does not share donors’ personal or contact information with any third party organizations for purposes of solicitation.

For purposes of individual donor acknowledgement, EarthShare Georgia releases donor names, contact information and donation amounts to those EarthShare Georgia participating organizations that are designated by our donors, and only with the written consent of our donors. EarthShare Georgia strives to ensure that all donors who request acknowledgment receive appropriate acknowledgment in an orderly, timely and effective manner from the managing federation (either an EarthShare affiliate or chapter, or the national office) and the recipient member charity (for designated gifts).

Visitors to the EarthShare Georgia Web site remain anonymous. EarthShare Georgia does not require visitors to register or provide personal information to view the site. There are instances when site visitors are asked for additional information in order to provide requested services. For example, information will be requested when making an online donation to EarthShare so the gift may be properly processed and receipted. EarthShare Georgia’s online donors choose the personal information that EarthShare Georgia receives and can opt to remain anonymous. All credit card transactions are conducted over a secure server.
