Florida Partnership to End Domestic Violence

The Florida Partnership to End Domestic Violence (FPEDV) values your support and is committed to protecting your privacy. We provide a safe environment for anyone who visits our website or makes a donation. The purpose of this statement is to share with you our policy concerning your privacy.

What information do we collect and how do we use it?

When you visit our website, we collect non-identifying information, such as total number of visitors and pages viewed. We use this aggregate information to improve our website and to make your experience as smooth as possible.

Individuals who sign up to receive FPEDV email updates voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We may use your email address to respond to your questions or requests. You may always “opt out,” if you do not wish to receive our messages.

When you make a donation or pay a training fee online, we ask for your name, address, phone, e-mail address, and credit card information. We use your information to process your donation/payment and to verify credit card data.

Do we share your information?

We may disclose to third parties aggregate statistics regarding donations, payments, and email subscriptions, but these statistics do not include any personally identifying information. The information given includes: total number of donors/payments, total amount of donations/payments for specific periods of time, and total number of email list subscribers. Aggregate information of this kind is used to encourage fundraising relationships and guide our own internal processes.

We use third-party financial institutions to process our credit card transactions. They receive the credit card number and other personal information of our donors and clients only to verify credit card numbers and to process credit card transactions in a secure environment.

How can you protect your personal information?

If you would like to review your personal information and request corrections, please contact [email protected]. You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time.

How do we provide a secure environment for online transactions?

When you submit sensitive information through our website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information online (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way.

We also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. If your credit card information is taken by a FPEDV employee over the phone, your information will be destroyed and not kept on file.

Our online credit card verification system is handled by a third party, which collects your name, address, phone, email address and credit card information in order to process your transaction. Their encryption technology offers an extremely high level of security. They also have firewalls and other security technology in place to ensure the confidentiality of your transactions.
