How Equality Now Uses Information
Equality Now uses personal information provided to send out Action Campaigns, thank you letters for contributions made, responses to queries, requests for continuing support, and updates pertaining to the work of Equality Now. Equality Now honors all requests for anonymity and confidentiality. Otherwise, donors who contribute more than $1,000 (or equivalent) per year are publicly acknowledged in Equality Now’s Annual Report. Equality Now never shares the names of donors or members of its Equality Action Network with other organizations.

Equality Now may occasionally use non-identifying and aggregate information. For example, X number of individuals visit our website per month, or Y number of individuals from a certain region of the world are members of our Equality Action Network. Equality Now may also occasionally share publicly available contact information for organizations that are members of its Equality Action Network around the world, to promote their work and facilitate direct contacts with them. Equality Now does not publicly disclose information that individually identifies members and supporters.

Occasionally members of the Equality Action Network send copies of their email or postal correspondence with government officials regarding Action campaigns. Unless Equality Now is instructed otherwise, this correspondence may be publicized to highlight the work of Equality Action Network members and to share information with other members of the Equality Action Network regarding the ongoing dialogues that are taking place.

Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, Equality Now has put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information collected online and otherwise.

Personal information is not stored online and cannot be publicly accessed online. To change or update personal information, Equality Action Network members and Equality Now donors can email Equality Now at info@equalitynow.org.
