Street Law is committed to respecting the privacy of our donors.

Information Collected

When a donor makes a donation to Street Law, the following categories of information are collected and maintained:

  • contact information: name, organization/company, complete address, phone number, email address
  • donation information: amounts donated, date of donation(s), and donation method
  • requests and comments submitted to us alongside your donation

Credit Card Information

Street Law does not collect or maintain credit card information from donations made via www.streetlaw.org. We use a third-party credit card processing platform processor, Stripe, to process online donations. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. (Learn more about Stripe’s security protocols and privacy policy.)

When a donor provides credit card information to Street Law via mail, telephone, or fax, for the purposes of making a donation, Street Law manually processes the donation using Stripe. Once processed, Street Law shreds any papers containing a donor’s credit card information.

How Information is Used

Street Law uses your data to maintain records of donations; acknowledge donations; provide charitable contribution receipts; send newsletters, notices, and direct mail pieces; and for internal marketing purposes. Credit card numbers are NOT retained once processed. When you make a donation through our website, we ask you if you would like to opt-in to receive periodic emails from us. Our third-party mailing service and database is contractually obligated to treat donor information with confidentiality and is prohibited from transferring them elsewhere. Donors may be listed by name in our Annual Report unless you request that your donation be anonymous (to request that your donation be kept anonymous, please email fundraising@streetlaw.org). We may use your written comments/letters appended to your donations occasionally to post on our website (in an anonymous fashion), and to respond to your inquiries.  Additionally, donations over 2% of our entire budget must be reported on IRS Form 990, Schedule B.

No Sharing of Personal Information

Street Law will not sell, rent, trade, or transfer your personal information to outside organizations. Use of donor information will be limited to the internal purposes of Street Law and only to further the mission of Street Law. However, the security measures in place may not prevent all disclosures, and Street Law is not responsible for any damages or liabilities relating to unintentional disclosures that are not a direct result of Street Law’s actions.
