Security

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the divestinvestindividual.org websites, your information is protected both online and offline. We encrypt your connection to our websites and to our donation processor over HTTPS. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

We process our e-mails through MailChimp, which we share with our Salesforce database. For information on Salesforce and MailChimp, see Salesforce's and MailChimp's e-mail privacy policies, respectively.

Surveys

On occasion, we may ask our site visitors to participate in voluntary surveys about our work. Survey information will be used for purposes of research in our issues areas, or to improve our services. If you participate in our surveys, you agree to share non-personally identifying information with us through our survey utility, SurveyMonkey. For details, see SurveyMonkey's privacy policy.
