Policy Name: Policy on the Privacy of Donor Data
Date: August, 2010
The University of Delaware (UD) is grateful for the financial support it receives from its donors and understands the importance of protecting the privacy of personal information. The University takes donors’ right to privacy very seriously and recognizes that, to merit donors' continued trust, it is important to be transparent and accountable in preserving the confidentiality of the personal information that UD collects and maintains.
The University of Delaware will share contact information with third-party vendors for the explicit and limited purposes of facilitating the University's mission through UD development and engagement programs. When such contact information is shared with the third-party vendor, the vendor will first be required to sign a written agreement pledging that the information will be used only for its intended purpose; will be stored securely; and will not be resold or provided to any other individual, entity or organization without the University’s express written approval.
Persons with responsibility for records containing personal information will exercise due care to ensure accuracy and completeness. Strict physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards will be utilized to protect personal information against accidental or intentional misuse or improper disclosure within or outside UD.
Donor contributions may be publicized in donor recognition vehicles produced by the University or other entities, including print, spoken, broadcast and/or web-based media. If donors do not wish their names to appear in these publications, they may notify the University’s Office of Donor Relations at (302) 831-2104.
