Privacy Policy

MyTributeGift.org (MTGF) is committed to preserving your privacy and safeguarding your credit card and other sensitive information. The following statement describes the general information-gathering and usage practices of our web site and donation service.

Collecting personal information through our Online Charitable Giving Portal service:

When you make a donation to a charity that is featured on a MyTributeGift Memorial Page, MTGF collects a variety of personal information in order to properly process your donation and be able to issue an official receipt for it, consistent with requirements of the IRS in the US. This also helps protect you in the case of a lost or missing receipt because we can reissue you a receipt for your donation. This personal information may include name, address, phone, email address, your credit card information, "acknowledgement" or "in memory of" information, and donation amount. MTGF will share this information with the charity to which you have designated your donation - unless you request us not to do so.

It is unlikely that MTGF will need to contact you, but we reserve the right in the event that we need to verify your personal information. If you contact us by email or phone, we may ask you to verify your personal information so that we may respond to your inquiry.

We collect credit card information from donors so that we can process donations. This information is maintained on a PCI-compliant and secure server and is not accessible by MTGF. We also use a credit card processing company to process donations. This company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

Protecting personal information:

MTGF takes every precaution to protect donor information. When donors submit sensitive information via our web site, their information is protected both online and off-line. When a donor is asked to enter sensitive information (such as contact information, address and credit card number) on a form, that information is encrypted and is protected using secure sockets layer (SSL) digital certificates.  While on a secure page the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Firefox, becomes locked.

Only MTGF employees who need the information to perform a specific task are granted access to personally identifiable information. All MTGF employees are apprised of and agree to adhere to MTGF’s security and privacy practices.

Complying with the judicial or legal system:

Though MTGF makes every effort to preserve donor privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law, the IRS or if requested by a credit card issuer in case of a dispute.

Changes to our Privacy Policy:

MTGF reserves the right to change its Privacy Policy and, in the event, will post those changes so that donors are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

Contacting MTGF:

MTGF works hard to ensure that your giving experience is a positive one. If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of MTGF, or your dealings with our Websites, please contact:
