OVGC collects and uses various personal information, such as: amounts donated, address, telephone number, donor comments, and email address. Tax laws in the United States and the State of California require OVGC to keep the contact information and contribution level of donors on file
How We Use Your Information
OVGC will never publish, sell, trade, rent, or share your name, email address, postal mail address, or telephone numbers (unless you allow us to). We will use your contact information only to:
- Thank you for your donation
- Provide you your donation receipt
- Send you OVGC-related information (e.g., promotions, fundraising opportunities, information on events)
- Conduct analysis and record keeping
- Provide required reports to U.S. and State agencies (Note: These reports are not for public inspection).
Request for Anonymity
When donating online, you have the option to have your name publicly associated with your donation or to choose the "anonymous" field on our email sign-up page that appears after you submit your donation payment
If you do not choose anonymity, our staff and volunteers will assume your name can be publicly announced, should we make such an announcement.
Also, please bear in mind that the comments you give in your donor form are published in public lists and may be used in promotional materials. Otherwise, comments sent to us via email, fax, or telephone, are kept strictly confidential, unless you give us permission to make them public.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration, and we look forward to seeing you at Coalition events!
