The Information We Collect

On many pages of the Capper Foundation website -- in particular when donating online, completing an action alert, registering for a special event, purchasing a product, or completing various feedback forms -- visitors are asked to list name, address, and other personal contact information. Information collected is specifically and knowingly provided by site visitors and may include name, email address, format preference (HTML vs. text), address, telephone number, interests and other similar information. Collecting this information helps Capper better provide site visitors with relevant and useful content.

Capper Foundation has partnered with WP Engine and Blackbaud to power the web content, email and transaction processing capabilities to serve our constituents and fulfill our mission on the internet.

Neither Capper nor WP Engine and Blackbaud store sensitive information such as credit card numbers. When an online transaction is completed through the online donation form, such as a charitable contribution, credit card information is used solely for the purpose of completing that specific transaction and is not retained in the database.

Capper Foundation will not sell, share or exchange personal contact information collected from this website with other organizations.



Capper Foundation does not share personally identifying information with third parties, except to a court or governmental agency if required by law and as stated above in the section titled "The Information We Collect."



A cookie is a small text file a website places on a site visitor's computer hard drive. Its purpose is to let the site know when a user visits and to perform certain functions such as saving passwords and personal preferences.

Cookies help evaluate visitors' use of a website, such as what viewers want to see and what they never read. This information allows Capper to better focus online information and to concentrate on information people are using.

Security of Your Information

All credit card and personal profile information provided to Capper Foundation or our internet software partner, Blackbaud, is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption using Blackbaud Payment Services as a payment gateway. SSL is a proven coding system that allows a browser to automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before it is sent.

Capper also protects account information by placing it on a secure portion of the network that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Capper Foundation. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure.  Capper strives to protect your information, however cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.

Capper Foundation has links to other websites outside of the network. Capper is not responsible for the content of any linked website, or any link contained in a linked website, or any changes or updates to such websites. The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by Capper of that website.
