We may, without your permission, electronically collect information regarding your online habits and location, including, without limitation, your remote location, e-mail address, and “cookies”.

All information concerning prospective and actual donors including names, addresses, phone numbers, any contact information, names of beneficiaries, nature and worth of estates, amounts of provisions, etc. will be kept strictly confidential by the OCF and its personnel unless the donor grants permission to use selective information for purposes of referral, testimonial or example at the discretion of authorized personnel. Any OCF personnel who violate this policy are subject to dismissal.
Confidential information also includes any information not known to outsiders that has value to the OCF or which premature disclosure would be harmful to the OCF. In addition, because the grant making function of the OCF may lend itself to misinterpretation by the community, officers, directors, committee members, staff, volunteers, interns and consultants are prohibited from using or attempting to use “inside” information for their own personal use, gain or advantage; or providing it to others to gain personal favors or exercise power or influence over others.
At all times, both during and after his or her term of service, every officer, director, committee member, staff, volunteer, intern and consultant shall hold confidential, and shall not copy, distribute or reveal any information, application or list of which he or she has knowledge or to which he or she has access by reason of his or her position unless specifically authorized by the President and CEO and the Board Chair.
