Institute of Noetic Sciences Donor Privacy Policy

Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) fully respects your privacy, and we are committed to protecting your personal information. This Privacy Policy outlines the terms detailing how we will and will not use information provided to us via forms and other information collection mechanisms on our web site, as well as offline collection methods such as mail and phone.

We will not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to any third parties. We will not use or disclose your personal information for purposes other than those set forth in this Privacy Policy, unless we get your permission or we are legally compelled to do so, such as by law, subpoena, or court order.

Donations and Gifts

  • If you make a contribution, we collect your name, email, the amount and date of the donation. If you provide it, we also maintain your address and telephone number. If you register for an event online, we collect your email address, and if provided, your name, address and telephone number.
  • Your online donation is processed via a safe, secure and private facility for making online gifts. 
  • The names of donors are kept in a secure database to send thank you and tax letters. Your email address is added to our email list. We email newsletters and updates, as well as periodic event invitations. If you ever decide you do not want these updates, you can request to be removed from the list by replying to the email with the request to be removed, or by emailing the request to be removed to [email protected].
  • We do not trade, share, or sell a donor's personal information with any outside organizations, nor do we send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. No donation history is made available to any party outside IONS. We provide information about major contributions to tax authorities as required by law.

Managing Your Privacy

As stated above, we will not collect personally identifying information about you without your knowledge, so the decision whether or not to share this information is completely up to you. You may request deletion or modification of your other personal information by contacting us at [email protected]. Note that any deleted information may remain in our data store as a result of routine system back-ups, but we will no longer use that information.

Information Security

In order to maintain the integrity and security of your personal information, we store this information on non-public computer systems with firewall and password protection to prevent access by anyone other than authorized IONS employees. Of course, we appreciate your help in safeguarding the integrity of your own privacy. We encourage you to let us know immediately if you suspect that the information you share with us is being used in any way contrary to this Privacy Policy, and we will investigate your inquiry as promptly as possible. To contact us, send email to [email protected].
