Privacy Policy

Community Based Development Partners, Inc. (CBDP) created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate respect for your privacy preferences and to disclose our information collection and sharing practices. Regardless of whether you provide us with your personal information via our website or in another manner (e.g. telephone, regular mail or face-to-face), we strive to honor your privacy preferences.

BY ACCESSING AND/OR USING THE WEBSITE, YOU HAVE AGREED TO 1) abide by the practices described in this Privacy Policy, as may be amended from time to time, and 2) the transfer, processing and maintenance of your personal and sensitive information in the United States of America.

THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT: Depending on the type of communication or transaction, the personal information we collect may include, but is not limited to, your name, postal address, zip code, telephone numbers, organization name, email address, debit/credit card, bank information or billing information.

WHERE AND WHEN WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION: You will be asked to provide your personal information when making donations, requesting communications, registering for a fundraiser or event, and/or in connection with other CBDP business (whether it is via the website, email, direct mail or telephone communications).

INFORMATION SECURITY: All online transactions are done on a secure server. This means that information entered on the transaction page is encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) before transmission. On secure pages, a “closed” lock symbol is displayed in the bottom part of your browser screen and the website address in the address bar at the top of the browser screen starts with an “https” instead of an “http”. Donation pages are verified by PayPal and transactions are processed using a PayPal merchant account.

CBDP MAY SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION: Personal information will be shared internally at CBDP to complete your donations or other transactions, to contact you about our ongoing work and to discuss ways that you can further support our efforts. CBDP may share, rent or exchange donor names and postal address with third parties. Except in the limited circumstances outlined below, CBDP will never intentionally share your email addresses, phone numbers or financial information.

EXCEPTIONS: CBDP reserves the right to share your personal information in certain situations:

Credit Card Transactions, Electronic Fund Transfers, Payments by Check or Money Order and Online Financial Transactions. CBDP hires third parties to provide credit card, bank, payment and information processing services and order fulfillment services. If you choose to make a donation online, by phone, through the mail or by other means, we will share your personal information with our processing service providers. We make an effort to require all third party service-providers to hold personal information in strict confidence. While we believe these other companies are upstanding and will treat your personal information responsibly, we do not own or control them and cannot guarantee your privacy.

Necessity. If we have reason to believe that there has been some inappropriate interference with or use of our website, communications, charitable services or personal or real property, or if we have reason to believe that one of the CBDP website users, donors or other related parties may have been injured or may have harmed some other party, we will disclose, without notice to you, personal information as we deem appropriate or if compelled by a legal or regulatory authority.

Requesting Communications. We share information provided by our website visitors with third parties that
provide services on our behalf – for example, to send communications. These service providers are not authorized by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.

YOU MAY ALWAYS CHANGE YOUR PRIVACY PREFERENCES BY CONTACTING US: If you would like to change your privacy preferences, please email us at

COOKIES: A “cookie” is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from CBDP web server and is stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies are used to collect non-identifying information about the user, such as Web surfing behavior or user preferences for a specific website. CBDP uses two different types of cookies – session-based and persistent cookies. Session-based cookies expire at the end of a browser session so once you close your browser the cookie simply terminates. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you remove them. Persistent cookies are used to provide internal Website analytics. You can manually delete all cookies including persistent ones within your browser privacy settings. You can also set your browser to not accept cookies although this may prevent you from using some of the services offered by CBDP’s website.

WEBSITE LINKS: In order to provide certain services at our website, we contract with other companies and individuals. These additional services may include “links” to other websites from our website. CBDP’s privacy practices may not be applicable at any third-party sites. Anytime you leave the CBDP website, we have no control regarding what information may be collected about you, nor do we control what third parties might do with the information.

CHANGES TO PRIVACY PRACTICES: From time to time, CBDP may revise its privacy practices to address changing technology, security measures and website functionality. We strive to provide you with timely notice of these changes. Please contact us if you have any questions about changes to our practices.
