Cru values and honors the privacy of its financial partners by establishing an environment of trust and safety. Information about our ministry partners and prospective partners, including names and addresses, credit card information, beneficiaries, gifts amounts, and estate information, is kept strictly confidential by all authorized Cru personnel (staff and volunteers), unless permission is obtained in writing from the donor to release such information. Such information shall be recorded and retained only for the private, business use of the organization.
Cru seeks to maintain appropriate measures to ensure the security of donor information, including the use of locked files, computer passwords, and by the regular shredding and disposal of unessential printed partner records. All ministry and remote field offices of Cru strive to follow these same guidelines, including security of their laptop and handheld (personal digital assistance) computers. Names acquired through the Internet, or other public domains, are also protected from unsecured Web sites, including addresses, telephone, facsimiles, e-mail addresses, credit card data, other personal information, and dossier files.
