The privacy of our members and donors is a top priority. We are committed to protecting the information you give us, and we do not share individual date (names, addresses, demographics) without your consent. We never sell or give our mailing lists to other organizations or individuals.
How Do We Use the Information We Collect?
When you become a member of MDSN, donate to our organization, or request information about, or participate in our offerings, we will ask for your name, address, email address, and telephone number. We may also request some demographic information such as gender, age of the individual with Down syndrome and siblings, and other information about your family. The demographic information (gender, age, etc.) may be used for reporting and grant writing purposes. For example, we may tell a potential funder that 25% of our members reside in Cumberland County, and that the median age of individuals with Down syndrome who attend our Annual Buddy Walks is 9. We do not release individual data for reporting or funding purposes. If you request information or help for a particular individual and give permission, we may share the individual data with a parent support volunteer or another agency that may offer appropriate services.
Our Use of Website Log Files
From time to time we may send out email messages soliciting your support, prompting a call to action, or alerting you of MDSN events. In addition, you may receive communications from us, if you have contacted us for information or help.
If you prefer NOT to receive any information from us, please contact us at 866-571-2223, or write us at MDSN, P.O.Box 705, Windham, ME 04062
