On-Line Giving Privacy Policy

Prescott Park Arts Festival is committed to respecting your online privacy and recognizes your need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information you share with us. We are pleased to disclose our information practices related to our online giving site below.

Prescott Park Arts Festival is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. Our web design partner, Tidal Media, of Portsmouth, NH provides the secure infrastructure that facilitates an online gift. The site stores no giving history, nor does it collect or store credit card numbers - those are processed through a third party vendor, Authorize.Net, whose privacy policies can be reviewed at www.authorize.net. Neither our web design partner nor our credit card processing vendor use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. The on-line giving site takes every precaution to protect our donors' information. We use Secured Sockets Layer encryption (SSL - the best encryption software in the industry) to protect sensitive information online. You can learn more about SSL at www.rsasecurity.com/standards/ssl. When a donor finishes making a gift online, it triggers an e-mail to authorized staff in our office, containing the information needed to recognize the donor and record the gift in our database. Only the last four digits of the credit card are transmitted via e-mail, for purposes of verification should a problem arise with the gift. You should not transmit confidential or sensitive credit card information to us directly using e-mail.

We collect the information so that we may record the gift which allows us to properly manage gift funds, add the newly received gift to the list of previously recorded gifts for the donor, and mail a written receipt (to supplement the online receipt). In general, we do not share gift history with anyone outside the Festival. Fundraising volunteers may occasionally see a very limited amount of giving history data.

We also do everything in our power to protect donor information off-line. All of our donor information is restricted in our offices. All employees and fundraising volunteers are periodically reminded of the importance we place on privacy.

The online giving page automatically sends an e-mail to donors with an official receipt after successful processing of their credit card. We store physical addresses, home phone numbers, and e-mail addresses received via this site in our software system, and will occasionally mail, phone or e-mail past donors to provide them additional opportunities to support the Festival. Out of respect for the privacy of our donors, we offer the option of not receiving these types of communications. Please contact hello@prescottpark.org if you would like to stop receiving mail, phone or e-mail solicitations.
