Privacy Policy

The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website.

  1. Our site’s registration form requires users to give us contact information (like their name and e-mail address). We use donor contact information from the registration form to send the user our electronic newsletter and other information about the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago. The donor’s contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.
  2. We will not give, or sell your e-mail address. The only exception to this is if another non-profit organization assumes responsibility and takes control over our donor list. In that case you will be given two weeks notice before the transfer to opt out.
  3. This web site contains links to other sites. The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.
  4. Our web site uses donation forms from donors to support our program. We collect the donor’s contact information (like their e-mail address). Contact information from the order form is used to send acknowledgements, donation receipt letters, and information about the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago to our donors. The donor’s contact information is also used to get in touch with them when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. Credit Card information that is collected is used to charge the user donations. It is never divulged to any outside party.
