SMP is sensitive to privacy issues and recognizes the need for appropriate protection and the management of the personal information of our donors and other users.

When visiting our website, you can do so anonymously, without telling us who you are or sharing any personal information. We do record traffic to our website, allowing us to know how many people visit our site and what pages on our site users spend their time viewing, but but we do not record any personal information about the user or their identity.
On certain pages of our site, users can opt to CONTACT US and ask a question, request materials, volunteer, or SUBSCRIBE TO OUR NEWSLETTER. The information collected to accommodate these requests is:
• Name (Required)
• Email address (Required)

What Information Do We Collect from people who Donate?
Donors can make online donations via PayPal account or by credit card by being directed to PayPal.com from SMP’s “DONATE” page.
The SMP website does not process credit cards or any financial transactions. The Survivor Mitzvah Project does not have any access to your credit card information. SMP only records the amount of donation, name of donor, email address, and only if shared by the donor, physical street address and phone number.
If you donate by check, SMP records donor’s name, and address (if provided by donor), and email address (if provided by donor).
On some pages on our website or via offline correspondence/communication, donors and others can submit information about other people. For example, if someone makes a donation “In honor of” or “In Memory of” another person and, if the donor wishes us to notify that person of the donation by sending them a “tribute” document, the donor would need to submit the recipient’s mailing address or email address. In this instance, the types of personal information collected regarding the person being notified is:
• Name of person being honored
• Address or Email Address
• Phone Number (Optional)
Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy
The Survivor Mitzvah Project does not knowingly request, collect or maintain any personal information supplied by children under the age of 13. If a child under the age of 13 requests information regarding Mitzvah Projects or Educational Projects or Volunteer opportunities, they must have parental consent by having their parent or guardian contact SMP to receive such materials. Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important.
The Way We Use Information
Your privacy is important to us. We use the information that donors and others, (including non-donor users of our website), provide about themselves when subscribing to our mailing list to send them information about The Survivor Mitzvah Project and SMP’s ongoing activities, to send them receipts of their tax deductible donations, to send out donation envelopes, tribute documents or other requested information.
We do not trade, share, rent or sell a donor’s personal information with anyone else or any other entity, nor do we send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.
We do not share information on our mailing list with any outside parties except to the extent necessary to actually complete mailings or electronic distributions relating to our own activities. We use your personal information only for the purpose for which it is submitted and our own record keeping as it related to donations received and
requested materials sent.
We use the information you provide about a donor or someone else being honored or memorialized by a donation to acknowledge the donation to the donor and any honoree that the donor may specify, provide the donor with a tax document recording their charitable donation for their records, and for our own internal accounting and record-keeping purposes to comply with record-keeping laws applicable to 501(c)(3) non-profit corporations. All of our users’ information for record-keeping is restricted in our offices. Only staff who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Persons may also request to be removed from any electronic or non-electronic mailing list maintained by SMP.
SMP is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites or any other web sites that may be linked to our site. It is good practice to always check the privacy statements of any site you visit that collects personal information. The Survivor Mitzvah Project has no control over other websites that may be linked to our site and is not responsible for the data collection practices of those websites.
