WE’RE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT --
AND WE RESPECT YOUR WISHES
We want to communicate with millions of Americans about our important mission in the least intrusive ways, and to do so we rely on digital data. Some states have enacted laws that protect rights to your personal data such as your name and postal or email address.
Even though states may not constitutionally enact Do Not Mail laws, and even before enactment of state laws about personal information and data privacy rights, we sought to ensure that people who do not wish to receive unwanted postal or digital mail had their desires honored. The process of suppressing names to prevent unwanted mail uses computerized methods, and does not stop printed mailings in process, but takes approximately eight weeks on average to filter for total effectiveness. Our direct mail data agents use the best industry standards out of respect for donors and their family members — because it is the right thing to do. We too have family members or friends we wish to be respected. It is personal to us that we respect Do Not Mail and other reasonable requests, even though states legally may not prohibit mail.
Here are some notices required by data privacy laws in various states.
