Information we share
Sudan Relief Fund honors the trust of our donors, who have provided us with personal information. Donor information includes, but is not limited to, the donor’s name, contact information, and donation history. Sudan Relief Fund has never and will never sell a donor’s personal information with anyone else. When a donor makes a designated gift, Sudan Relief Fund may share that donor’s information with the beneficiary NGO – unless the donor instructs us otherwise. The information a donor provides to Sudan Relief Fund is used to process donations, issue tax receipts and thank-you letters.
All Sudan Relief Fund directors, staff, consultants, and volunteers are bound by this policy. We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Sudan Relief Fund unless one of the following circumstances applies:
With your consent
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Sudan Relief Fund when we have your consent to do so.
For external processing
For legal reasons
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Sudan Relief Fund if we have a goodfaith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
• meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
• enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
• detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
• protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Sudan Relief Fund, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.
We work hard to protect Sudan Relief Fund and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:

• We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems
• We restrict access to personal information to Sudan Relief Fund employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated
