Cross Catholic Outreach’s Privacy Policy

Cross Catholic Outreach knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate you trusting that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This Privacy Policy explains our practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by Cross Catholic Outreach. It applies to donor information that we collect both online and offline.

We obtain information about you when you use our website, for example, when you contact us about products and services, to make a donation, to volunteer with our organization and programs or if you register to receive one of our weekly newsletters.

We collect personal information when you voluntarily submit it to us.

For example, donors may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information). If a donor, or a website visitor, contacts us by email they may provide us with their email address, and name. Providing data is required in these contexts in order for us to process your donations, requests, or respond to inquiries.  Additionally, if you apply to for a job or to volunteer with us, you will be providing us with information about yourself contained in the application, including, but not limited to, your gender, age, interests, and reasons for seeking a position.

In addition to the personal information that you submit to us, we may automatically collect information using the following technologies:

Web Server Logs. Our web servers may collect certain information such as IP address, pages visited, time of visits, and referring website.

If you make a donation online or purchase a product from us, your card information is not held by us, it is collected by our third-party payment processors, who specialize in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions, as explained below.

We collect information primarily to accept donations, complete our charitable projects, process volunteer and job applications, and provide you with information concerning our programs, projects, and activities. We also use information for analytical purposes, to improve our website, our donor base, our outreach, or to respond to requests for information. We may inform you of other purposes at the time that we collect some forms of information. For example, if you apply for a job we may collect information in order to process your job application.

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.

To the extent relevant law requires that we have a legal justification to process your information, we use the following depending on the type of data and the type of processing:

  • Consent: When you provide us with your email address, we may utilize that information to communicate with you regarding our programs, projects, and activities.  You can withdraw consent to receipt of such communications as further described in section 9 below.

  • To fulfill a contractual obligation: If you donate to us or otherwise express interest in the work of our organization, we will process the personal data you provide to process that donation or act on your request.
  • Legal obligation: We will process your personal information to fulfill any legal obligation placed upon us.  We will also process your personal information if lawfully required to do so by a legal authority or court of law.
  • Necessity: Certain processing, such as processing associated with an employment or volunteer application, is necessary to fulfill our obligations as an employer or volunteer coordinator.
  • Security: We take appropriate security measures to ensure that we keep your information secure, accurate, and up to date, and certain processing of your data is necessary to ensure security as well as monitor for potential fraudulent behavior.

Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf: We may pass your information to our third party service providers, agents subcontractors and other associated organizations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to process donations and send you mailings). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond the Cross Catholic Outreach Network for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

Third Party Product Providers we work in association with: We work closely with various third party product providers to bring you a range of quality and reliable services. These third party product providers will share your information with us which we will use in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

When you are using our secure online donation pages, your donation is processed by a third party payment processor, who specializes in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions. If you have any questions regarding secure transactions, please contact us.
