AMDF respects the privacy of our donors and website visitors.
In order to fulfill its mission, the AMDF maintains databases that are compiled exclusively of information knowingly and voluntarily provided to the AMDF by our donors and website visitors. The AMDF respects the privacy of our donors and website visitors. The AMDF does not disclose, give, sell, or transfer any personal information about our donors and website visitors, unless required for law enforcement or otherwise required by law. Please note, the AMDF receives memorial and special occasion donations, both on-line and through the mail. The AMDF may list the name, city, and state of the donor and the occasion in our print Newsletter. This is a well-established policy adopted by most charitable organizations. However, donor amounts and specific addresses are not disclosed. Donors who want the amount of their donation publicly disclosed may request the same from the AMDF.
We must disclose pertinent credit card information to appropriate banking institutions for those persons using credit cards to make donations to the AMDF. However, credit card information collected by the AMDF is used strictly for billing purposes.
Site Visitorship Data
The AMDF routinely gathers data on website activity, such as how many people visit our website, the pages they visit, and where they come from. This data is collected on an aggregate, anonymous basis, which means no personal information is associated with this data.
Please be aware that our website contains links to other websites and that the privacy practices of these other websites may differ from those of AMDF. Each website is responsible for its own privacy practices.
On March 1, 1998, the American Macular Degeneration Foundation adopted a stated policy of nondiscrimination in regard to all persons, irrespective of their race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, sexual preference, age, disability or veteran’s status, and compliance with all requirements of law and regulations with respect to employment, volunteer participation and the provision of services.
