Elmcrest may collect information regarding visitors to, including IP address, browser, and domain information. We may also monitor and track information such as visitor usage patterns using standard website tracking software.

Cookies are small text-only files that are stored on your computer and that can be used to help identify you when you visit our site. A cookie cannot read data on your computer, nor can it read cookie files created by other websites. We may use cookies to make visiting and using our site easier, for instance, so that you do not have to repeatedly enter your information, and so that we can tailor the site to your expressed preferences. If you wish, you can usually set your browser to refuse cookies or to notify you when you receive a new cookie.

The only personal information Elmcrest collects through is voluntarily submitted by its users. Personal information may include your name, email address, physical address, phone number, and for donations, credit card information.

Elmcrest is committed to protecting your personal information. We share your personal information only with our financial service providers in order to complete your donation. We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving sensitive financial information. All online donations are processed via third parties using secure servers. We do not store your credit card information for future use.

All information concerning donors or prospective donors, including their names, the exact amounts of their gifts, or any other information for which there is a reasonable expectation of privacy and/or confidentiality is kept strictly confidential by Elmcrest, its Board of Directors, volunteers, and staff, unless the donor gives permission to release such information. Only authorized Elmcrest staff and members of the Board of Directors are permitted to view the information contained in donor files. Donors may receive a complete copy of their records upon request.

Elmcrest does not share or sell your personal information, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. Elmcrest uses personal contact information to be able to send communications such as our e-newsletter, newsletter or mail appeals. Donors and supporters may opt-out of such communications by notifying Elmcrest’s Development Office.

Providing the donor’s name on any correspondence accompanying a donation is considered permission to be included in published lists of donors. Upon request, Elmcrest will withhold the donor’s name from public communications.

We are grateful for your support. If you have any questions about Elmcrest’s privacy policy for donors and visitors to, please contact Chris Iven at 315-446-6250, ext. 355 or
