The Stephen Lewis Foundation is committed to protecting your privacy and maintaining the confidentiality of your personal information. We adhere to the following principles when managing your information:
The Stephen Lewis Foundation respects the privacy of its donors; we do not sell, rent or trade our donor lists. We only collect information which you provide voluntarily to us through secured online donations, emails, over the phone, etc. The information we collect is used to process donations, keep you informed about the activities of the Foundation, and ask for your support in our goal to turn the tide of HIV/AIDS at the grassroots in Africa. If at any time you wish to be excluded from such contacts, please call us at 416-533-9292 or 1-888-203-9990 and we will accommodate your request.
The Foundation recognizes the need to protect the personal information you have entrusted us with and will take all reasonable steps to ensure the security and accuracy of the information we have about you.
By using a professional and secure payment service for online donations, we are better able to protect the privacy of personal and financial information. Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") encryption technology is used when making online donations.
Like many other organizations, the Foundation may use 'cookies' in special areas of our website that require login or registration - these temporary files enhance your ability to use the website but are discarded when the session ends. Additionally, software may be utilized to record the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer that has contacted our website for the purposes of gathering website usage statistics.Maintaining Openness
