LFI Privacy Policy

Our privacy policy is primarily divided into three areas.  Donation Privacy, Client Privacy and Site Privacy.  In all aspects, LFI will never sell or share your information to any third parties outside of those third parties who need information to process your donation.

Donation Privacy

By default and because of a desire to be transparent donations are reported annually on our site.  Donor information made available to the public will include the first name initial and full last name, followed by the aggregated donation amount covering the calendar year.  So      M Leffler – $500    would be publicly available if a person matching that name donates that amount.  Donors are allowed to request that their donation be kept anonymous, during the donation process.

Donations may be made completely anonymous by donating to Paypal Giving Fund, which makes donations to us in their name.  Donors are encouraged to review their privacy policies.

Donor information such as full name, address or other contact info is only shared with donation processing partners at the time of the donation if made online.  Further information about donors is not shared with any third party at any other time without written permission of the donor, unless legally required to do so.

Donors are optionally able to join various Google Groups to monitor the use of funds and the balances available to programs they have donated too.  As these groups include various other donors any communication to the group is publicly available to all group members.  Any information they share within the Google group should be considered public.  At no time will LFI reveal the identity or contact information of a member of these fund Google Groups.

Client Privacy

LFI will not share any information with anyone outside of LFI’s programs about any client … past or present unless legally required or in the event of urgent safety concerns, approved by the Vice President of Services.  If a client authorizes the confirmation of their involvement within a program, then LFI will only address the specific scope of that involvement.

Trust is essential within our relationship with our clients and we will fight to retain that trust.
