Federal law requires IOFA to inform individuals associated with the organization (as staff, interns, volunteers, or consumers) how we collect, use, share, and protect personal information. Federal law also limits how we can use personal information collected both online and offline. In most cases, IOFA collects limited personal information, such as name, address, telephone number, or email address of volunteers, program participants, and donors. In limited cases, such as for staff, we also may collect other personal information such as Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, or health information. This information is stored in internal databases, scanned documents, and paper files. IOFA’s Executive Director makes every effort to secure sensitive information about staff and donors by restricting access to files, limiting duplication, and shredding sensitive documents. Information about volunteers and program participants is not distributed outside of IOFA without the expressed consent of those individuals. Consumers who provide information to us online, through sites such as Eventbrite, MailChimp, or Razoo, also have the option of opting out of providing personally identifiable information.
An employee, intern, or volunteer shall keep all information confidential, in whatever form, produced, prepared, observed or received by the employee, intern, or volunteer to the extent that such information is confidential by law.
