Collection and Use of Information
We will use your Personal Information for the purposes for which you provide it, such as administering your fund or grants, facilitating transactions, or responding to inquiries. We may also send you communications about programs, events, and opportunities that we think may be of interest to you. If you ever wish to stop receiving communications, you may opt out by following the “unsubscribe” instructions in email communications or by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, calling us at (212) 686-0010, or mailing to New York Community Trust, Attention: Mail List, 909 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10022. If you are a donor or grantee you may not be able to opt out of certain administrative and similar communications concerning your fund or your grants.
We may combine your Personal Information collected through our Site with information collected from publicly available sources to perform research and analysis concerning donors and potential donors and their interests.
We do not sell, share or trade your Personal Information, including donors’ names, with other entities and we do not send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations.
This policy applies to all Personal Information, whether we collect it online or offline.
The Trust will keep your Personal Information as long as required to deliver our services, to evaluate current or prospective donors, or as may be required by law or regulation.
Our Site is not currently configured to respond to “do not track” signals or similar mechanisms.
Sharing with Third Parties
We may share your Personal Information with companies that help us operate our Site and provide services (“Service Providers”), including web hosting, email, and fulfillment services. In addition, our Service Providers may collect your Personal Information when you participate in certain activities such as when you make an online donation, sign an online grant agreement, recommend a grant through our donor portal, submit a grant proposal on behalf of an organization, or listen to podcasts. Our Service Providers may share selected information they collect with us (but will not share your payment card information). Our Service Providers are required to maintain the confidentiality of your Personal Information and to use it only for the purposes of providing the requested services.
We reserve the right, without notice, to disclose and use Personal Information and non-personal data in special circumstances, including to enforce this Privacy Statement or other Terms, to protect The Trust’s or another party’s property or rights, to protect the safety of any one, to protect against fraud, and for other reasons we determine in good faith are necessary, appropriate or required by law, legal process, law enforcement, or regulatory authorities. If we ever merge with or otherwise consolidate with another organization, your Personal Information may be shared or transferred as part of our assets.
Review and Update Your Information
We will use reasonable efforts to let you review your Personal Information and, upon your instructions, to correct inaccuracies in your Personal Information in our records. If you are a current donor and wish to review and update your Personal Information, you can do so in your profile page if you registered on the Donor Portal or by contacting us at email@example.com.
Links to Third-Party Sites and Social Media Sites
We use firewalls, authentication procedures, and other reasonable steps to keep your Personal Information in a secure manner and to protect it from unauthorized access. Our Service Provider encrypts payment card information using secure socket layer technology. Of course, no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so you provide your Personal Information at your own risk.

Our servers are located in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, be aware that the information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By using our Site or providing your Personal Information to us, you consent to this transfer and to the collection, storage, processing and use of your Personal Information in the United States. If you are located in the United States, our Service Providers (or other entities with which we share your information) may not be located in your geographic area in the United States. By providing your Personal Information on our Site, you consent to the transfer of your Personal Information to these locations and entities.
