Your privacy is our mandate
The Stony Brook Foundation is committed to ensuring the privacy, confidentiality,
and security of those who visit and make donations on our website. This statement
describes our information collection practices and explains how we use and protect
your personal information. This statement applies specifically to information collected
by this website.
Credit Card Information
To ensure that credit card information is secure and electronic payments are processed
safely and efficiently, we use a secured site to protect your online donation.
Other Personally Identifiable Information
To make an online gift, we require you to provide your full name, address, and email
address. You may also choose to provide additional information. You may elect to receive
email from us and you may opt out of receiving email alerts by checking the appropriate
box on any alert. This website will not sell or transfer such information to any third
parties except (i) to the extent necessary to authorize third parties such as the
secured site to process the transaction you are authorizing and to use the necessary
information needed to perform their functions and (ii) on select occasions to authorized
vendors for the purpose of offering services to alumni. In all such cases we require
the third parties to agree not to sell or transfer the information. In addition, we
may disclose personal information when we have a good-faith belief that disclosure
is required by law. Stony Brook University and Stony Brook Foundation may use the
information you provide to update your contact information and to maintain contact
with our alumni.
By making a charitable gift to the Stony Brook Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization,
the donor understands that charitable donations are not refundable.
Publication of Donor Names
The names of all donors may be included in materials such as honor rolls, annual reports,
and other appropriate publications, in both print and electronic formats, unless otherwise
requested by the donor. Donors who have made gifts to the Foundation via bequest or
other testamentary device are deemed to have granted such permission unless otherwise
specified in the gift instrument or other document.
