Donor Privacy Policy

Canadian Feed The Children is committed to protecting our supporters’ privacy. We ensure our activities in Canada and abroad – whether conducted face-to-face, online, by telephone or by mail – are governed by strict ethics and sound privacy practices.

Donating online is done through a SSL-encrypted secure site. We collect information about website usage through the use of cookies – a small piece of data that is sent to a user’s Internet browser and stored on a user’s computer hard drive. A cookie cannot read data from a computer hard disk or read cookie files created by other websites. CFTC uses cookies to identify which areas of our website users have visited, and for statistical analysis to improve the user experience on our website. Users can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the setting of their Internet browser. The website does not link IP addresses to any personally-identifiable information. Other aspects of our privacy policy include:

  • All reasonable efforts will be taken to honour any request from a donor or prospective donor not to be contacted for future fundraising campaigns.
  • Any information from or about donors that is obtained by or on behalf of Canadian Feed The Children is to be handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent allowed by law.
  • Donors have the right to remain anonymous.
  • All fundraising appeals by or on behalf of Canadian Feed The Children are to disclose Canadian Feed The Children’s legal name, its status as a registered charity, and the purpose for which funds are requested.
  • All members of the public, including donors and prospective donors, are entitled to one copy of the following, on request and at no charge other than the cost of reproduction and distribution:
  • Canadian Feed The Children’s most recent annual report and/or audited financial statements;

  • Donors and prospective donors are entitled to know, upon request, whether the individual asking for funds is a volunteer, a member of CFTC’s staff or a service provider.
