Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure any personal information you provide to FotoFocus from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.

Disclosure of Your Information

Because FotoFocus’ list of donors and supporters is one of its most valuable assets and because many of our donors and supporters value their privacy and do not want to be placed on another organization’s email or mailing lists, no matter how honorable the organization’s mission, FotoFocus has established the following Sharing of Email and Mailing Lists Policy that respects this privacy interest:

  1. Names of donors, volunteers, and other supporters of FotoFocus may be listed on the FotoFocus website and in promotional and educational materials, but such listings will not include addresses or other contact information.
  2. FotoFocus will not share or deliver an electronic copy of its email list to another organization. When appropriate and approved by the Executive Director, FotoFocus will either email information to the members on our email list or use other social media to promote an exhibition or event on behalf of another organization.
  3. When appropriate and approved by the Executive Director, FotoFocus may make mailing labels available, either by mailing the materials itself or sending its labels to a mailing house.
  4. Except as outlined above, FotoFocus will not sell, trade, or otherwise make its list available to others for any purpose.
  5. FotoFocus will honor the request of donors who wish to remain anonymous.

We may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide as described in this Privacy Policy:

  • To fulfill the purpose for which you provide it.
  • For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.
  • With your consent.

We may also disclose your personal information:

  • To comply with any court order, law, or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request.
  • If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of FotoFocus or others.

We may disclose aggregated, non-personal information about our users that does not identify any individual, without restriction.

Accessing and Correcting Your Information

You may send us an email at to request access to, correct, delete, or limit the disclosure of any personal information that you have provided to us.
