Privacy Policy

Our commitment to privacy

Goshna is committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and security of personal information about our current and potential donors. When you provide personal information to Goshna, we believe that you should be aware of our policies designed to protect the confidentiality of this information.

How and why we obtain information

Goshna obtains personal information about you in the following ways:

  • From you or your authorized representative on applications or forms (examples include name, address, email)
  • From transactional activity (for example, contributions and grant recommendations)
  • From other sources with your consent or with the consent of your authorized representative (for example, from other institutions if you contribute positions into Goshna)

We may use this information to process transactions; to respond to inquiries from you or your representative and to develop, offer, and deliver new programs and services. Goshna takes great care to protect your personal information and when we use it, we do so with respect for your privacy.

How we protect your information

Goshna considers the strong protection of sensitive information to be a foundation of our donors’ trust and a standard practice. Goshna does not sell or rent donor names or information to any firm or non-profit organization.

We may share the personal information that we collect with government agencies or other regulatory bodies and law enforcement officials (for example, for tax reporting or for reporting suspicious transactions).

Privacy online

Privacy, security, and service online are just as critical as the rest of our operations. Goshna works to secure our systems from unauthorized access and to maintain the security of your online session. For example, we make extensive use of firewall barriers, encryption techniques and authentication procedures. We may also place cookies and similar files on your hard drive for security purposes, to facilitate site navigation, and to personalize your experience on our site. Our cookies do not identify you by name as an individual or by account number.

For your convenience, Goshna offers several options for accessing and, if necessary, correcting your account information. You may review your personal information by logging on to your account at www.goshna.org. You may also choose to write or call us with your request for information.
