Donor Privacy Statement

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah (BBBSU) maintains the highest level of respect for the privacy of its donors. The following is our donor privacy policy, which guides our volunteers and staff on how they may and may not use your personal information while honoring your rights as a contributor.

BBBSU collects and uses personal information from donors that includes: name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and donor comments when a donor voluntarily provides it to us. In addition, BBBSU keeps a record of each donor’s giving history. This information is kept on file for IRS purposes and is also used in our development process to analyze overall giving patterns in order to make accurate budget projections.

BBBSU does not sell, trade, rent or share names, addresses, telephone numbers, or e-mail addresses of our donors. BBBSU will use contact information (e-mail, telephone number and address) of donors for these purposes only:

  • Distribute receipts for donations
  • Thank donors for their donation
  • Inform donors about news, upcoming fundraising events/opportunities and other activities of BBBSU
  • Internal analysis and record keeping
  • Reporting to relevant U.S. and State agencies (these reports are not for public inspection)

For on-line donations we use the SafeSave Payments Gateway which allows users to securely process payment transactions from credit cards and bank accounts. It is a web-based system that uses a secure (https:) internet connection that has been independently certified as a Level 1 Service Provider and complies with all Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. The SafeSave Customer Vault provides secure storage of customer account information within the SafeSave Payments Gateway. Once account information has been stored within the Customer Vault, a Vault ID is issued that can be used to process transactions. This eliminates the security risks posed by storing account information locally, and transmitting it to the gateway each time a transaction is processed.

As a rule, BBBSU publicly recognizes a donor by publishing a donor’s name unless the donor explicitly chooses the anonymous field when making a donation by mail or online.
