THE DELTA CHI FRATERNITY, INC. PRIVACY POLICY

The Delta Chi Fraternity, Inc. recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of the members/donors or “participants” of our organization. The information collected by us from you is subject to this privacy policy. This policy may change to reflect any new measures or content and is subject to change without notice effective when posted on the web page. Please revisit this policy from time to time to be sure you are familiar with the current policy.

Membership and donor information is collected by us and stored securely on our servers and on records completed by the participants. Credit card or banking information is not entered on our computers except as requested by the participant. Paper copies are shredded within a reasonable time frame after transactions are processed.

We use the information we collect from you to provide services and to enhance promotion of our services. The enhancement of our services may include improving our web site, analyzing trends and gathering demographic information.

The Delta Chi Fraternity, Inc. allows pre-approved restricted access and use of participant information if The Delta Chi Fraternity, Inc. determines such access will enhance and/or improve the organization. Any participant is able to opt-out of this access, in whole or in part, by requesting to be placed on the organizations “Opt-Out” list. Should you wish to be placed on this list, simply notify Emily Haworth by the following e-mail address ehaworth@deltachi.org or simply write the request and mail to Emily Haworth c/o The Delta Chi Fraternity, Inc., P.O. Box 1817, Iowa City, IA 52244. Any member of the Fraternity is able to opt-out of receiving outside mailings at any time by requesting to be placed on our “No Vendor” list. Any member may request to be placed on our “No Mail” or “No Solicitation” lists. Should you wish to have your name placed on any restriction, simply notify Emily Haworth at ehaworth@deltachi.org or 319-337-4811. Use of any of these restrictions may have unintended consequences so please use them judiciously. An example might be the use of “No Vendor” preventing your name and contact information from appearing in our Alumni Directory that is normally printed every five years by a licensed vendor and your chapter brothers wondering what happened to you. We sincerely apologize to any member who has received a mailing from a licensed affinity partner, or any other party, that they did not wish to receive. We also appreciate your fraternal understanding as we attempt to balance the varying needs of our diverse membership.

The Delta Chi Fraternity, Inc. does our best to prevent the unauthorized release or access to the personal information we collect. Please be advised we endeavor to create a secure web site for our users but the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to, or from, our organization via the Internet cannot be guaranteed. Your use of the Internet to transmit personal information to us is done at your own risk and we have no responsibility or liability for the security of your information in this regard. We urge you to exercise caution whenever you convey any personal information over the Internet. Delta Chi allows contractually restricted access to the mailing lists of its members to licensed affinity partners (offering approved goods and services). Lists are also provided to individual alumni with the understanding that the use of such lists is expressly restricted to fraternal/social purposes and that the lists may not be used otherwise. In addition, we share our information with the Delta Chi Educational Foundation. We also provide lists to our chapters and colonies to use to promote fraternal interactions. Violations will be sent a cease and desist notice and put on a watch list.

Our web site may be linked to other web sites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of these other web sites. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any organization you engage. We welcome your questions or comments regarding this privacy policy or about our information-gathering practices. Should any material changes be made to our privacy policies, or the way we use your personal information, we will take reasonable measures to post notice on our web site at least 30 days prior to the effective date of the change.
