includes: amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments and e-mail
address. Tax laws in the United States and the State of California require EMW to
keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file.
How We Use That Information
EMW will never publish, sell, trade, rent or share names (unless released for publication), e-mail or mail addresses, or telephone numbers of donors. EMW will use contact information (e-mail, telephone number and address) of donors for these purposes only:

No Sharing of Personal Information
East Meets West will not sell, trade or share a donor's personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. We will use our best efforts to comply with the expressed wishes of any supporter who does not want their name used in any promotional material, wishes their name removed from solicitation lists, or wishes to have their gifts or services be anonymous. Unless requested in writing, all donors will be published in our annual report.
All access to donor financial information is strictly limited to professional staff who need to process those data. No such data are given to any person, organization or group who does not need to access those data.
EMW only uses online payment processing services with world class security and strong reputations. The Center does not store, nor does it have access to, your credit card information, bank account numbers, or other account data sent to those processing services.
