Privacy Policy

The Idaho Fish & Wildlife Foundation (Foundation) places a high priority on protecting the privacy of its donors and constituents. This Policy was created in order to demonstrate the Foundation’s firm commitment to respecting privacy and information sharing preferences of donors to the Foundation, subscribers to newsletters, e-newsletters and Foundation publications, of donors with restricted gifts to program partners whose gifts are administered by the Foundation, to individuals who voluntarily share their contact information with the Foundation, and to users of the Foundation’s Website or social media accounts. This Policy also explains what information is collected by the Foundation’s Website, www.IFWF.org, and how this information is used. By visiting www.IFWF.org, or through social media correspondence (Facebook or Twitter account), you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

COMMUNICATIONS AND E-COMMUNICATIONS
Donors to the Foundation and individuals that sign up to receive information about the Foundation, either in person, via written or electronic correspondence or through the Foundation’s Website or social media correspondence, provide us with contact information (name, phone, email and physical address). Any information collected may be used by the Foundation in any of the following ways: to process or solicit pledges, donations and/or other gift requests or transactions; to acknowledge gifts for tax-deductible receipt purposes; to send periodic newsletters or updates about Foundation activities; for publication of friends and supporters of the Foundation, its programs or funded projects or those of program partners; or to send invitations to special events. Program partners (e.g., MK Nature Center) are tax-exempt organizations whose programs are compatible with the mission of the Foundation. In some cases, program partners may be part of a governmental unit (e.g., state agency, city zoo), and your contact information would be public information. You may opt out of receiving information through the mail and prefer electronic communications only. You may request that your name not be published in Foundation publications. You may request that your contact information not be shared with the Foundation’s program partners. The Foundation uses your contact information for in-house purposes only and will never sell your information to any third party.

DONATIONS ONLINE
When you make a donation online, these transactions are processed through the Foundation and the Foundation’s online Merchant Services Provider. All information, including credit card information, is encrypted for transmission purposes only. The Foundation has security measures in place intended to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under its control. The Foundation uses partners with industry standard encryption to contribute to the security of the personal information you provide. Neither the Foundation nor any of its contracted partners have access to your credit card information.

When donating through the Foundation for a specific program or partner organization (e.g., MK Nature Center), your information (name, phone, email and physical address) is shared only with that organization. Some program partners may be programs of governmental units, wherein contact information shared with that governmental unit (i.e., state agency, city zoo) would be public information. Again, you may always “opt out,” either now or at any time in the future, by clicking on the box to decline information sharing on the Donate page on the Foundation’s Website; by checking the appropriate boxes on contribution envelopes and printed materials; or otherwise by contacting the Foundation.

Donations will appear on your credit card statement as “Idaho Fish & Wildlife Foundation.” For all donations, the Foundation is responsible for issuing an acknowledgement of your donation for tax purposes.
