Donor Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Our Donors

The Maryland Center for History and Culture is committed to respecting the privacy of our donors. Here are the types of donor information that we collect and maintain:

  • Contact information: name, organization/company, complete address, phone number, email address
  • Donation information: amount(s) donated, date(s) of donation(s), method and any restrictions
  • Your requests and comments
  • Non-personally identifiable information, such as how many hits each CFS website page receives, and if the visitor is repeat or new. This requires that a ‘cookie’ be sent to your web browser.

The Maryland Center for History and Culture uses your data to maintain records of donations, send acknowledgements, mail year-end tax statements, send newsletters and direct mailings, and for internal marketing purposes. To the extent any donations are processed through a third-party service provider, our donors’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation.

We normally add you to our mailing list, unless you request otherwise.

Our third-party mailing service is contractually obligated to treat the lists with confidentiality and is prohibited from transferring them elsewhere.

Individuals, corporations, and foundation sponsors who donate over $150 are listed in our Annual Report, unless otherwise requested.

We use your written comments and letters occasionally to post on our website and respond to your inquiries.

Credit card numbers are not retained once processed. Our website has a SSL certificate.

This policy applies to all information received by the Maryland Center for History and Culture, both online and offline, on any Platform (“Platform” includes the Maryland Center for History and Culture website and mobile applications), as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications.

Please contact us with any questions or comments, or if you wish to be removed from our mailing list. Email, or call 410-685-3750, ext. 399.
