CDEL understands the importance of maintaining your privacy.  We have made every effort to ensure that if you provide your personal information, it will be secure.  Our commitment to your privacy is the reason for the policies briefly summarized below.

Personal Information:

The decision to provide personal information on any of the pages on our website is solely yours.  Any information that you do provide will be accessible only to qualified CDEL employees and will not be shared with any other person(s).  CDEL will not sell, rent or distribute your personal information to third parties. 

We ask for personal information on our website’s online donation pages to help prevent fraudulent donations and to allow us to acknowledge receipt of your donation for tax purposes.  If you make a donation through our website, we will place your name and address on our mailing list for occasional mail updates and to acknowledge you by name in our Annual Report.   If you do not wish to receive mail from CDEL, you may opt out at any time by notifying us via e-mail at and inserting the subject line “Remove”. 

Online Donations:

If you choose to donate to CDEL online, you will be redirected to a secure website, Network for Good, in order to make your donation.  This site uses data encryption technology to secure your personal information.  Your credit card number will be used only for that single transaction and it will not be stored either by Network for Good or by CDEL.  If you wish your donation to be anonymous, simply indicate this by selecting “anonymous” under your privacy settings in your Network for Good account.  If you have questions about the security of your online credit card donation, please e-mail CDEL at for more information.

Resource Links:

We have included links to other organizations on our website.  This information has been provided to assist users in quickly obtaining information or assistance from other organizations.  The inclusion of these links is neither an endorsement by CDEL of these organizations, nor does their inclusion imply that CDEL is affiliated with these organizations in any way.  Further, the privacy policies for these organizations may differ from that of CDEL.  Please understand, therefore, that CDEL is not responsible for the content or the privacy precautions of these linked websites.
