Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. HCZ is committed to respecting the privacy of online visitors and
pledges its best efforts to that end. Our Web site is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal
information not entered by visitors. Our site logs do generate certain kinds of non-identifying site
usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal
purposes by technical support staff to provide better service to the public.

Credit Card Information

Harlem Children’s Zone has contracted the services of a banking partner to process credit card
donations submitted online. Our banking partner’s secured server encrypts your credit card
information so that is may be safely transmitted over the Web. Your credit card information will not
be released by Harlem Children’s Zone or its banking party to any other party

What information do we collect? How do we use it?

When you request information about HCZ or give a donation, we require you to give us contact
information (name, e-mail and address). We may use this information to send you information
about HCZ programs, events or annual fundraising appeals. We do not sell, trade or rent your
personal information to others. We do not participate in telemarketing.

HCZ may release personal information under the following circumstances:

  1. Where release is required by law or regulation or is requested by a government agency;
  2. Where our records indicate that a person may be engaged in fraudulent activity or other deceptive practices that a government agency should be made aware of;
  3. To appropriate persons, if a person's communication suggests possible harm to others.
