Donor Policy

We support the Donor Bill of Rights.
Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organisations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

  • To be informed of the organisation’s mission, of the way the organisation intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
  • To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organisation’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgement in its stewardship responsibilities.
  • To have access to the organisation’s most recent financial statements.
  • To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
  • To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.
  • To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
  • To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organisations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
  • To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organisation or hired solicitors.
  • To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organisation may intend to share.
  • To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.

What information we collect
Yogi Divine Society. We use personal information collected from donors for the purposes of processing payments and communicating with donors about Yogi Divine Society as well as conducting the fundraising and other operations of Yogi Divine Society. This information may include name, amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments, e-mail address, and any other personal information provided to us (“Donor Data”). For donations by check, Donor Data also includes the data visible on the check.

As part of providing an online experience expected by our donors, we may store various data that are collected as part of standard web operations (including things like user agent strings, IP addresses, referrer strings, and cookies). We may use this data for purposes described in this policy, including analytical needs and improved functionality of our website. We make limited use of cookies, including third-party cookies (such as cookies from payment processors), to track sessions, help store data, and fulfil the purposes set out in this policy. You can prevent or delete our cookies by adapting your browser settings, although this will likely affect the functionality of the website.
Payment Processors and Other Service Providers. Payment processors allow donors to give electronically using a payment services account, a credit card, or another payment method. These processors collect certain information from donors, and you should consult their privacy policies to determine their practices.

Financial information
It is our internal policy to limit access to financial information to professional staff and volunteers who need to process that information for the purposes described above. Personal financial information is not sold to or traded with other parties.
We use partners to provide online payment processing services. Usually, the privacy policies of these organisations will be presented to you on their respective websites and typically also as part of your donation process. If you pay by credit card, we do not store your credit card information, bank account numbers, or other financial account data sent directly to those processing services.

Security
We are committed to protecting donor personal information from unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction. Among other things, we undertake a range of security practices, including measures to help secure web access to sensitive data and undertake efforts to address security vulnerabilities for various tools and databases.

Other Disclosures
We may disclose information when required by law; when needed to protect our rights, privacy, safety, property, donors, or users; and when necessary to enforce our terms of service.

Updates
We may change the Donor Privacy Policy from time to time. Any and all changes will be reflected on this page. Substantive changes may also be announced through the standard mechanisms by which we communicate with our users and community. You should periodically check this page for any changes to the current policy.

Data Retention
We seek to retain donor-related information only as needed to fulfil the purposes described in this policy unless a longer retention period is required by law or regulations. For example, tax laws in the United States and the State of New Jersey may require Yogi Divine Society to keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file.

Rights
You have certain rights with respect to the information we collect about you. Upon request, we will tell you what information we hold about you and correct any incorrect information.
