HealthRight International is dedicated to honoring the privacy of our supporters at all times. Following are details about our online policies, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.
Information security and quality
HealthRight International intends to protect the quality and integrity of your personally identifiable information.
Donations made on the www.healthright.org website are secure to the fullest extent possible. We have implemented appropriate physical, technical, and organizational measures, including industry-standard encryption for transmission of credit card information, to help keep your information secure, accurate, current, and complete.
We publish a list of donors in our Annual Report. If you prefer that we do not include your name or the name of your organization in these cases, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Collection of personal data
HealthRight International only collects and maintains personal information that is sent to us directly from an individual or company. You can visit www.healthright.org without telling us who you are and without revealing any information about yourself.
To complete online transactions, you will be asked for your address, e-mail, and credit card information. This required information is necessary for us to process transactions, protect you against credit card fraud, and contact you should the need arise in administering your account.
HealthRight International will never rent, exchange, or sell the e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, or credit card information of our supporters. We will only share personally identifiable information with a third party if required by law.
HealthRight International adheres to a strict anti-spam policy, making it easy for our e-news subscribers to unsubscribe.

The HealthRight International website contains links to other sites, but HealthRight International is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites.
Donor Bill of Rights
HealthRight International believes in the rights of donors and subscribes to the Donor Bill of Rights. This statement of rights was developed by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the American Association of Fund Raising Counsel, Association for Healthcare Philanthropy, Council for Advancement and Support of Education, and National Society of Fund Raising Executives. The full text follows:
“Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:
I. To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
II. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
III. To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.
IV. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
V. To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.
VI. To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
VII. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
VIII. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
IX. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.
X. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.”
