Donor Privacy Statement

The Career Transitions Center of Chicago is committed to respecting the privacy of our donors. We have developed this privacy policy to ensure our donors that donor information will not be shared with any third party. CTC will not sell or trade its donors' personal or contact information (e-mail or mail addresses, or telephone numbers of our donors) with anyone else, nor will they send mailings on behalf of other organizations.

CTC collects and uses various information from donors that includes: amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments and e-mail address. Tax laws in the United States and the State of Illinois require CTC to keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file.

CTC uses donor information to understand donors' needs and provide excellent service. We will list the name of your firm along with our other donors on our website and in printed marketing materials but will remove your name from the list at any time at your request. CTC will use contact information (e-mail, telephone number and address) of donors for these purposes only:

Properly anonymized donor information is used for CTC’s promotional and fundraising activities. CTC allows donors the option to have their name publicly associated with their donation unless the donor explicitly chooses to remain "anonymous".

All access to donor financial information is strictly limited to professional staff of the CTC whose job requires them to process this data. No such data is given to any person, organization or group who does not need to access those data. Donor records are kept in a secure locked file cabinet.
