SPECIAL OLYMPICS ILLINOIS MAY SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION INTERNALLY
Special Olympics Illinois may use your information to: complete your donations; contact you about our on-going work; discuss employment opportunities and ways that you can further support our efforts to support our mission; fulfill your requests for products, programs, and services; communicate with you and respond to your inquiries; conduct research about Special Olympics Illinois programs, services and Network; help offer you other programs or services that may be of interest. We may also share your information with other Special Olympics Illinois Area Programs so that we may provide any requested services or information at the local level. For example, if you are requesting a calendar of events in your area, we may share your e-mail information with the local Special Olympics Illinois Area Program so that it can provide you with that information. Your personal information will also be used to provide you access to the various sections of our website that have been personalized for your needs.
We occasionally exchange our donor name and address list with other reputable nonprofit organizations to keep our costs down. If shared, the other nonprofit organization is only permitted to use such information for a one-time mailing and cannot use it for telemarketing purposes. You can opt out of this exchange at any time by contacting us at DonorServices@SpecialOlympics.org and providing your complete name and address.
Except in the limited circumstances outlined above and below, Special Olympics Illinois will never intentionally share your e-mail addresses, phone numbers or financial information with others.
EXCEPTIONS: Special Olympics Illinois reserves the right to share your personal information in certain situations:
- Credit Card Transactions, Electronic Fund Transfers, Payments by Check or Money Order and On-line Transactions. Special Olympics Illinois uses third parties to provide credit card, bank, payment and information processing services. If you choose to make a donation on-line, by phone, through the mail or by other means we will share your personal information with our processing service providers. While we believe these other companies will treat your personal information responsibly, we do not own or control them and cannot guarantee your privacy.
- Necessity. If we have reason to believe that there has been some inappropriate interference with or use of our website, communications, or charitable services, or if we have reason to believe that one of the Special Olympics Illinois website users, donors, employees or other related parties may have been injured or may have harmed some other party, we will disclose, without notice to you, personal information as we deem appropriate or if compelled by a legal or regulatory authority.
