Our Privacy Policies
Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento
We will not share any information you provide here with any other organization.
We Respect Your Privacy
In general, you may visit our Web site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Some sections of our site, such as our online donation forms and periodic surveys, do require us to ask you for some personal information, such as name, address and telephone number or e-mail address. If you choose to give us information via the Internet that we may need to correspond with you about or to process your online contribution, we will let you know how we intend to use that information. We also will tell you how you may opt out of providing that information, and we will respect your wishes. We do not routinely collect personal information about individual users. We do not sell, trade, rent or otherwise share personal information collected on our Web site with others.
Information We Collect
Our Web server automatically recognizes only your domain name (e.g., .org, .edu), but not your e-mail address. We collect e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us by e-mail or who otherwise voluntarily provide their e-mail address to us.
If you supply us with your mailing address online, you may receive periodic mail from us about updates to our Web site or about special programs or events in which you might be interested. We may also use your mailing address to acknowledge charitable gifts you make online and to send you a receipt for tax purposes.
If you supply us with your telephone number online, you may receive telephone contact from us with information or questions regarding your online donation, or with information on programs or events in which you may be interested.
If you supply us with your e-mail address online, you may receive e-mail contact from us with information on programs or events in which you may be interested.
If you do not wish to receive e-mail, telephone calls or mail from us in the future, please let us know by sending us your request by e-mail to the above address, by calling us at the above telephone number, or by writing to us at the above mailing address.
We do not share any information gathered via our Web site with other organizations for commercial purposes, nor do we disclose, sell, trade, rent or otherwise reveal your e-mail address to other organizations.
Our server uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect credit card and other personal information when transferring and receiving data with our site. SSL is the industry standard security protocol. This encryption is designed to prevent the theft or interception of the information you provide. When you send us your donation via e-mail, your personal information will be sent via SSL technology to the Sutter Medical Center Foundation office. We recognize the importance of respecting the integrity of this material and limit access only to personnel authorized to process your request. We will reply to you via e-mail when your e-mail is received in our office. We also will send you a gift acknowledgement letter via U.S. mail when your credit card donation has been processed, which serves as your donation receipt. All off-line information is securely stored and is accessible only by authorized staff.
We do not partner with or have special relationships with any ad server companies.
Changes in our Policy
We may decide, in the future, to use visitor information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in this privacy notice. If our information practices change, we will post the policy changes to our Web site to notify you of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back to our Web site periodically. In any event, for these new purposes, we will use only data collected from the time of the policy change forward.
Access to Your Information
At your request, we will provide you with access to online donation information that we maintain about you (e.g., dates on which you made gifts and their amounts.) We also will provide visitors to our site with contact information that we maintain about them (e.g., name, address, phone number.) You may request this information, or tell us about inaccuracies that require correction, by sending us your request by e-mail to the above address, by calling us at the above telephone number or by writing to us at the above address.
