Donor Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy

Welcome to the Council for Economic Education (CEE) website. Included below is our policy on how we handle donor information. CEE respects the privacy of every donor. Your privacy is a priority, and we go to great lengths to protect it.

How We Use Your Information

The Council for Economic Education gathers personal information, such as name, address, email, phone number, and credit card number, only when voluntarily submitted by you. If you make an online donation, personal information will be collected from you in order to process that donation. CEE will not sell, trade, or share personal information about our donors with anyone else, nor will we send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations, unless a donor has given us specific permission to do so.

If you provide the Council for Economic Education with personal information when you visit our website or make a donation (online or by mail), we will enter your information into our database, so that we can provide you with information about our programs and events, or request contributions. Access to our database is restricted to personnel with legitimate business need to access or modify the information contained therein.

Credit Card Information

We use a variety of safeguards to protect the security of your credit card transactions. We use technologies and processes such as encryption, access controls, network firewalls, physical security and other measures. These measures make it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept the credit card information you send to us. When we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, those companies also use encryption and other security measures.

We Care About Doing It Right

The Council for Economic Education is committed to accuracy and precision in processing your information. We employ a variety of error-checking procedures, and our systems are subject to independent external and internal audits to ensure the privacy, security and accurate processing of your information. Please contact us if you wish to review your information, make corrections, or to discuss your preferences about how we contact you.
