Privacy Policy

This privacy statement applies to the Archdiocese of Boston, which respects the privacy of our online visitors and donors.

The Archdiocese of Boston does not rent or sell donor information to outside marketers. We use a credit card processor for donations, and the server uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect credit card and other information submitted via the forms on this site. SSL is the industry standard security protocol. All off-line information is securely stored and is accessible only by authorized staff.

The Archdiocese of Boston may ask you to voluntarily provide information in a few circumstances. When you donate online, we will need personal information, such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit card number, so that we can process your donation and provide a receipt. This site collects information such as the visitor’s domain name, site traffic patterns, and server usage statistics. This information is used to improve the performance and content of our Web pages and to personalize content and layout of our pages for individual visitors. We do not collect your e-mail address unless you choose to communicate with us via e-mail or you volunteer your e-mail address on a form on this site. We do not sell, exchange, or rent e-mail addresses or donor lists.

The Archdiocese of Boston will discontinue contact with any person upon written request.
