Online Giving

Should you decide to make a donation, you will be asked to provide you name, contact information, and credit card billing information.  All of this information is encrypted using SSL, an industry standard secure technology.  This encryption is designed to prevent the theft or interception of the information you provide.  SSL encryption is indicated on your web browser by the display of a lock or key on the browser status bar.  Sacred Heart Foundation provides the technology to ensure that your donation is successful and secure.

Sacred Heart Foundation does not sell, trade, rent, or share your information with any entity other than Sacred Heart Health System, Inc. and the vendor we have selected to process payment transactions, which has its own privacy policy.  We may use demographic data derived from aggregate donor information, such as number of donors from a particular locale or number of donations above a certain giving level.

Sacred Heart Foundation collects your e-mail address for the sole purpose of sending donation confirmations and will not disclose, sell, trade, rent, or otherwise reveal your e-mail address to any entity other than Sacred Heart Foundation and Sacred Heart Health System, Inc. which has its own privacy policy.

If you request, Sacred Heart Foundation may use the contact information to send you additional information about Sacred Heart.  You may opt-out of receiving future mailings.  Our online surveys ask visitors for contact information (like their e-mail address).  The customer’s contact information is used to contact the visitor when necessary.  Again, users may opt-out of receiving future mailings.

In addition to utilizing SSL encryption for all transactions, Sacred Heart Foundation stores encrypted credit card numbers and passwords, as well as other donor information, on servers that are kept in a physically secure environment with strict policies that minimize staff access to the information contained therein.
