Our Commitment to Our Donors ("Donor Privacy Policy")


We will not sell, share or trade our donors’ names or Personal Information with any other entity, nor send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations. This Donor Privacy Policy applies to all information received by Ascend Together both online and offline, on any Platform, as well as any electronic, written, or verbal communications.

Acceptance of Terms
By visiting Ascend Together and/or using our Services, you agree to the terms (“Terms”) of this Privacy Policy and our accompanying Terms of Use. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use (collectively, this “Agreement”), please do not use the Ascend Together website. 

Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning set forth in our Terms of Use ("Terms of Use").

The Information We Collect
Ascend Together collects information when you visit our website, create an account, edit your account information, or use features on the platform to donate. Some of this information is technical information automatically logged by our servers. Outlined below are the types of information, both directly from you and indirectly through the collection of information by third-party service providers (together, “Partners”) that we specifically collect.

You authorize us to use, store and otherwise process any personal information which relates to and identifies you, including (but not limited to) your name and address, to the extent reasonably necessary to provide the services which are available through our website, our Partners, successors, assignees, associates, sub-contractors, or other third parties.

Personal Information ("Personal Information")
For purposes of this Privacy Policy, Personal Information means any information or set of information that identifies or could be used by or on behalf of Ascend Together or any of our Partners to identify a natural or legal person. Personal Information does not include information that is encoded, aggregated, anonymized or publicly available information that has not been combined with non-public Personal Information.

  • Contact you regarding your donation(s), as to the quality of the service, as well as any potential errors that may have occurred;

  • Voluntary submissions to Ascend Together requesting information about our products and services, signing up to receive information from us, or sending us an e-mail;

  • E-mail subscriptions. Ascend Together may also compile a subscription list to which you voluntarily submit your name, mailing address, and/or email address. The purpose of such a subscription list would be to send you periodic updates to subscribers on matters of interest, provided you will have the ability to opt out of further communications in accordance with procedures described in each such update.

How We Protect the Information

We take commercially reasonable steps to protect Personal Information and Other Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information that you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the Internet. In particular, e-mail sent to or from the Platform may not be secure, and you should, therefore, take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.

To help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Our website uses a Transport Layer Security, the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private. All online donation transactions are handled by Payment Card Industry (PCI)-compliant vendors. PCI refers to the technical and operational standards that businesses must follow to ensure that credit card data provided by cardholders is protected.

Important Notices to Non-U.S. Residents
Our Platform and our servers are operated in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that any Personal Information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By using the Platform and by providing us Personal Information in any manner, you consent to this transfer and our use of the information and data provided by you in accordance with this Privacy Policy. 

If you have any questions regarding this Privacy Policy, please contact us as described in the section below. We will investigate your question, respond to your inquiry, and attempt to resolve any concerns regarding your privacy question. 

Links to External Websites
Ascend Together may share articles or information from another website or any externally-facing communications from Ascend Together (from any Platform, online or offline, verbal, written, or electronic) may contain links to third-party websites. Ascend Together has no control over the privacy practices or the content of those websites and is therefore not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of those third-party websites. You should check the applicable third-party privacy policy and terms of use when visiting any other websites.

Children 
We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13 through the Services. If you are under 13, please do not give us any Personal Information. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Policy by instructing their children to never provide Personal Information through the Services without their permission. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided Personal Information to us, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.

California Residents
It is Ascend Together's policy not to disclose any personal information we collect to third parties for direct marketing purposes under any circumstances. However, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 requires that all California residents be afforded the option to exercise your choice of whether your personal information may be shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes or not, as well as to receive information specified in the statute if your personal information is disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes. Accordingly, if you are a California resident and you wish to inform ascend Together whether you permit or refuse the sharing of your personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes, or if you wish to request certain information if your personal information were to be disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes, please contact us in the section below.

Changes to This Privacy Policy
This Privacy Policy is effective as of the date stated at the top of this Privacy Policy. We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. Please be aware that, to the extent permitted by applicable law, our use of the Personal Information and Other Information is governed by the Privacy Policy in effect at the time we collect the information. Please refer back to this Privacy Policy on a regular basis.

Funding Transparency

As a newly established nonprofit, no information is available at this time. Funding information will be available following IRS guidelines set forth in 501(c)(3) for private foundations designated nonprofit. Ascend Together Foundation operates entirely through volunteer services. No person or persons receive compensation for time and/or for services rendered including officers, directors, or trustees. Be assured that all funds are put to work to carry out the mission of promoting racial unity through positive action. 

Stronger together, divided we fall.
