Austin Community Foundation (ACF) is committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and security of personal information entrusted to us by donors, fundholders, and all others who visit our website or access our services.

Website: When you visit our website (austincf.org), we may ask you for personal information from you such as your name and email address.

In addition, our site uses Google Analytics web service.

The site uses two specific Google Analytics features: Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. These features generate information about a user’s age, gender and interests from Google’s Interest-based advertising or third-party audience data to improve services on this website. This information is tracked using Google’s DoubleClick cookie.

We do not and will not merge any personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information previously collected unless you have been given notice of and have given prior affirmative (i.e. opt-in) consent to that merger. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to our website is restricted by the Google Privacy Policy. To provide website visitors more choice on how their data is collected by Google Analytics, Google has developed an Opt-out Browser add-on, which is available by visiting Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on, to enable you to opt-out of Google’s programs.

Online donation processing: ACF engages several trusted third-party donation processing platforms to accept online donations. Data collected by these platforms is subject to each of their respective Privacy Policies.

For employee giving campaigns, donor data such as name and contact information is collected via GiveGab/Bonterra. Payment data is processed by Stripe and is not stored or accessible by ACF. We don’t rent or sell donor data to any third party, and use it solely for relevant business purposes such as transaction processing, customer service, reporting, etc. Donors may request access to, review or modify their personal information maintained by ACF by emailing info@austincf.org.

In addition, all ACF staff members sign a confidentiality policy that encompasses all Foundation business including donor data.
