Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

  • To improve our Web site. We continually strive to improve our Web site offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you.
  • To improve customer service. Your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs.

Your information, whether public or private, will not be intentionally sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the purchased product or service requested.

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information.

We use a server that uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect credit card and other sensitive information submitted via the Web site. The information is only accessible by authorized personnel who are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, each of our vendors is required to sign a confidentiality agreement, pursuant to which they agree to protect your information against unauthorized disclosures.

Subscription to publications

If you subscribe to a publication published by the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation and distributed via email, we will keep your email address in a private distribution list. Messages sent electronically do not reveal recipients’ email addresses or any other personal information. Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation will only send messages to individuals who have opted to subscribe and who have provided their email address to us directly. We do not use this email address list for any other purpose, and we only add individuals at their request. At any time, you may opt out by using the unsubscribe link provided on our web site and in the publication email, which will remove your information from the distribution list for that publication.

Donations and fundraising events

When you donate to Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation or register for a fundraising event, we ask you to voluntarily provide your name, address, telephone number, email address and credit card number so we can process your donation or event registration, send you a receipt or confirmation and communicate with you if necessary. If you’d like, you can provide that information another way (by phone or regular mail).

When you make a gift on our site, your information goes into a database maintained by the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation.  The Foundation may then send you email or mailings about other opportunities to support our programs and initiatives.

What if I do not wish to receive further e-mails or fundraising requests?

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future e-mails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each e-mail. You may also e-mail us at staff@chmfoundation.org.

If you no longer wish to receive future fundraising requests from the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation, you can opt-out at any time by emailing us at staff@chmfoundation.org or by notifying us in writing at 3911 Beaubien, Detroit, Michigan 48201.
