The down syndrome guild respects your privacy
The privacy of our families, donors and volunteers is a top priority. We are committed to protecting the information you share—and we do not share individual data (names, addresses, demographics) without your consent. We never sell or give our mailing lists to other organizations or individuals.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
When you participate our online chat tool, share your information in our “Get Connected” function, attend a DSG event, donate to the organization, sign up for our mailing list or request information about our services, DSG will ask for your name, address, e-mail address and telephone number. We may also request some demographic information such as gender, age of the individual with Down syndrome, ethnicity and other information about your family. The demographic information may be used in the aggregate for reporting or grant writing purposes. For example, we may tell a funder that 25% of our mailing list resides out of state and that the median age of individuals with Down syndrome who attended our Awareness Walk was 12 years old. We do not release individual data for reporting or funding purposes. If you request information or help for a particular individual and give DSG permission, we may share the individual data with a parent support volunteer or another agency that may offer appropriate services.
OUR USE OF WEBSITE LOG FILES AND ONLINE CHAT TOOL
We follow generally accepted standards to store and protect the personal information we collect, both during transmission and once received and stored, including utilization of encryption where appropriate. We utilize Let’s Encrypt for our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), a networking protocol designed for securing connections between web clients and web servers over an insecure network, such as the internet.
We follow generally accepted standards to track the website traffic for our site. We utilize the analytics from Google Analytics, Lucky Orange and the analytics from our social media channels.
From time to time we may send out email messages with newsletters, soliciting your support, prompting a call to action, or alerting you about DSG events. In addition, you may receive communications from us if you have contacted us for information or services. You may unsubscribe from these communications by clicking the link at the bottom of the email or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
