What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information


Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers.

The information we collect on our website is used in two primary manners. For those signing up to donate or become a member, the information is used to create a member profile for which we keep a record of to process correspondence to the member in the future. This includes communications via the mail, internet or phone call. For those simply interested in information the site contains, the minimal information collected is used to inquire as to whether the person providing the information wishes to be contacted by us in the future primarily through email communications.

A person can opt out of these communications at any time by checking the “please remove my name from your email list” option contained in every email or by contacting the PKD Foundation by phone (816) 931-2600, mail (8330 Ward Parkway, Suite 510, Kansas City MO 64114) or email (pkdcure@pkdcure.org) and asking to be removed from future correspondence.

Credit card information is handled by a secure third party host and used only to process the payment initiated by the person contacting the PKD Foundation. This information is not stored by the PKD Foundation.

The information we collect is not shared with anyone other than companies the PKD Foundation has hired to act on its behalf to raise funds for our organization. We will not sell, share or trade your personal information with any other third parties. Additionally, organizations interested in providing educational material to the PKD Foundation membership must provide that material to the PKD Foundation and the PKD Foundation will mail the material on their behalf to ensure relevance to the intended audience and to keep the personal information confidential. Educational material will never be used to solicit funds on behalf of another organization.

An individual using the PKD Foundation website will have access to select parts of the site without having to provide any information. However, some minimal information must be provided to gain access to various parts of our website. An individual may choose not to provide that information. By not providing that information, however, access may not be possible to various areas on our website.
