The privacy of our members and donors is a top priority. We are committed to protecting the information you give us and we do not share individual data (names, addresses, demographics) without your consent. We never sell or give our mailing lists to other organizations or individuals.
How Do We Use the Information We Collect? When you become a member of DSAGSL, donate to the organization, or request information about our services, we will ask for your name, address and e-mail address, and telephone number. We may also request some demographic information such as gender, age of the individual with Down syndrome, and information about your family. The demographic information (gender, age, etc.) may be used , in the aggregate, for reporting and grant-writing purposes. For example, we may tell a funder that 25% of our members reside in Illinois and that the median age of individuals with DS who attended our Walk in the Park was 12. We do not release individual data for reporting or funding purposes. If you request information or help for a particular individual and give permission, we may share the individual data with a parent support volunteer or another agency that may offer appropriate services.
Communication From time to time we may send out email messages soliciting your support, prompting a call to action, or alerting you of DSAGSL events. In addition, you may receive communications from us if you have contacted us for information or services.
