Your privacy is important to us. The following policy explains what information we collect about donors and visitors to this website, the security measures we use to protect this information and how you can inform us if you do not wish to have your information shared:
All online donations to GAP are processed through Salsa Labs. Salsa Labs uses industry-leading Secure Sockets Layer technology to keep your personal information as secure as possible. Salsa Labs does not disclose credit card information and helps to protect your information by working with partners that provide a secure and safe environment for credit card donations. Salsa Labs will not share your information with any third-party organization without your explicit permission to do so.
Visitors to our website can submit their email by signing up on our homepage. GAP does not rent, sell or share email addresses. We use this information to keep in touch with our members through E- News and E-Alerts. If you wish to remove your email address from these communications, please hit the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the E-News or E-Alert message or email your unsubscribe request to email@example.com.
All intake applications are confidential. To protect your privacy, we use Secure Sockets Layer technology to safeguard and secure any information that you share on your application.
Confidential GAP Client Names and Witnesses
If a person witnesses wrongdoing and reveals that information to GAP in confidence, we pledge to keep that confidence. We have never revealed a confidential name to any party, agency or company. Twice we have aggressively and successfully fought legal subpoenas in federal court that would have required the naming of names: one famously against the Department of Justice and the 2nd against Food Lion, Inc. See United States v. Garde, 673 F. Supp. 604, 606 (D.D.C. 1987), app. dism., 848 F.2d 1037 (D.C. Cir. 1988).
The Government Accountability Project fully subscribes to the Rules of Business Ethics and Practices issued by the Association of Direct Mail Fundraising Council and the Direct Marketing Association Non-profit Council. This means that we do not share the information of any member who requests that his or her name not be used for exchange or rental purposes. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to remove your mailing address from these uses, request corrections, or have your name removed from our mailing list.
Some GAP donors may receive periodic phone calls from us informing them of important ways they can join the fight for accountability (e.g. by writing a letter to their representatives) or requesting support. We may occasionally exchange the phone numbers of donors who have given to us through the phone before. If you do not want your name exchanged or want to be removed from our calling list, please call Hudson Bay Member Services at 1-800-876-2454 or send an email requesting removal to email@example.com.
If a donation was made in error, GAP will refund the donation in full if the donor makes the request within 60 days of the transaction. To process a refund request, please contact GAP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
