Privacy Policy

Effective Date: February 1, 2012

Catholic Charities of East Tennessee is committed to preserving your privacy and safeguarding your credit card and other sensitive information. The following statement describes the general information-gathering and usage practices of our web site and donation service.

It is unlikely that Catholic Charities of East Tennessee will need to contact you but we reserve the right in the event that we need to verify your personal information. If you contact us by email or phone, we may ask you to verify your personal information so that we may respond to your inquiry.

When making a donation, donors may be asked to check a box to “receive email updates.”  Catholic Charities of East Tennessee will obtain that information and may choose to send email updates to the donor.

We use a credit card processing company to process donations and monthly fees. This company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

If a donor selects “I want to make a recurring donation”, you will be registering to make a credit card donation every month, 3 months, or year. After you complete this initial donation, future donations will be made automatically. You will receive an email receipt for each recurring donation.  Of course, you will be able to cancel your recurring donation at any point in the future.
