Privacy Policy

Personal Information

HIAS is committed to protecting your privacy. HIAS does collect personal information from users (such as an individual’s name, address, telephone number, credit card information, or email address) in association with donations, user registration, newsletters, and other activities, when relevant. HIAS also uses personal information to communicate with registered users. For example, HIAS might use your personal information to send you our newsletter or to solicit funds.

We restrict access to personal information collected about users to our employees or others who need to know that information to provide services to you or in the course of conducting our business operations or activities. While no website can guarantee security, we maintain appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect all personal information collected via the website. We protect our databases with various physical, technical and procedural measures and we restrict access to your information by unauthorized persons.  We also advise all HIAS employees about their responsibility to protect customer data and we provide them with appropriate guidelines for adhering to our company's business ethics standards and confidentiality policies.  Data collected is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access.

Additionally, when a user visits the HIAS website some information is automatically collected, such as the user’s computer operating system and browser type, version, and capabilities. This information is tracked through the use of “cookies,” which are small computer files that store information about computers that access the HIAS website.

HIAS does not sell or rent personal information to third parties. Occasionally, HIAS does share personal information with similar nonprofit organizations. We are committed to the privacy of our donors. Should you prefer that we not share your information with other nonprofits, you may opt out at any time by calling us at 212-613-1438 or emailing development@hias.org.
