Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. We have created this privacy policy to address concerns you may have about the way we use personal information collected through this website.

Personal Information

We do not collect personally identifiable information about you unless you knowingly provide it to us. “Personal information” may include your name, address, phone number, and email address.

We will not sell your personal information to third parties. We will share personal information only with third party vendors who act on behalf of the Delaware Community Foundation (DCF) and only for the specified use. For example, large mailings may be prepared by a mailing service. These vendors are required to treat your personal information as confidential. In addition, we will not trade, share or sell a donor’s personal information (email, physical address, phone number) with anyone else – either online or offline, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. Otherwise, we will only share personal information if the donor has given us specific permission to do so.

As a casual, unregistered visitor to our site, you can browse and learn about us without us collecting your email address or any other personal information. We use standard web server technology to collect technical information such as the name of your Internet Service Provider, its IP address, the name of your operating system (Windows, Macintosh, etc.), your browser type (Internet Explorer, etc.) the length of time you spend on our site during a visit, the pages you visit and so on. This information does not identify you personally.

Accessing Fund Information

If you are a contact for a charitable fund within the DCF and want to access information about the fund online, you will use DonorCentral®. This donor interface uses contact information gathered during establishment of your fund agreement. Any information you provide is downloaded from our web server and maintained in a secure system. If there are multiple contacts for a charitable fund, the primary contact will need to provide the DCF with permission for additional contacts to access fund information online.

Communication From Us

We will use your email address and other identifying information for follow-up contacts with you. If you provide us with your personal information, we may notify you from time to time about DCF services, benefits and events. At all times, we include links to “opt-out” instructions with the email we send to you.


We use cookies (small pieces of information stored on your computer) on certain parts of our website. The cookies allow us to track your session, particularly when you access your fund account. We do not use cookies to collect any type of personal information or to extract any information from your computer.

Security Online

When you provide information through this website, the transmission is protected by Secure Service Layer (SSL) encryption. Some common browsers make it obvious when information is being passed in a secure manner by displaying either a completed key or a closed lock on the screen and “https” rather than “http” in the URL. However, no website operator can guarantee that a web site is completely secure or “hackerproof.” You use this web site solely at your own risk.

Credit Card Transactions

We use a service provider to process credit card transactions on our behalf. When you provide credit card information through our website, your information goes directly from your computer to a server operated by our service provider. Our service provider uses your credit card information only to process your transaction and is bound by contract to treat all of your personal information as confidential.

Links To Other Sites

The DCF provides links to websites of various philanthropic and nonprofit organizations. A link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization, sponsorship or affiliation with respect to such site, its owners or providers. When leaving, we are not responsible for the information or security of those sites. We recommend you check the privacy policy of the site you are visiting before providing personal information.

Web Links To This Site

You may establish a hypertext link to this site from your website, as long as the page containing the link properly attributes the linked site to the DCF and does not state or imply any sponsorship of your site by the DCF. You may not take or use any copyrighted content or otherwise intellectual property from the DCF’s website without prior written consent of the DCF.

Privacy Notice Changes

We reserve the right to update and change the notice as we may deem appropriate. If you have any questions about our website privacy notice, please contact us at [email protected] or 302.504.5226.
