Privacy Policy

The Task Force for Global Health respects and values the patronage of our site visitors, patrons, and donors. This policy describes the ways we collect, store, use, and protect your personal information. You accept this policy when you sign up for or use our products, services, or any other features, technologies or functionalities offered by us on our website or through any other means, such as our funds collections services, newsletter subscription services, etc.

Credit Card Security

The Task Force for Global Health is grateful for the donations that help us continue our valuable work. It is very important to us that your personal information remain secure. When you donate to The Task Force for Global Health online, your credit card information is collected through a secure site managed by the organization, Network for Good. Also, your credit card number is used only for that particular transaction and is not stored. You will see the "closed" lock symbol in the lower part of your browser screen (often it is yellow as well) when you are on our secure donation pages. You will also notice in your web site address bar that the domain name starts with an "https" on those donation pages. This means that information entered on those pages is encrypted for your security. This actually makes it more secure than using a credit card in physical form at a store for example. If you have any questions regarding the security of your credit card donation online, please e-mail info@taskforce.org, or call 1-800-765-7173 for more information.  If you are making a donation in honor of or in memory of someone, we will not use their personal information for any purpose other than sending the acknowledgement card.
