In accordance with the Secretariat of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation (henceforth referred to as the “Secretariat”), the Rotary Club of The Palisades is committed to four core privacy principles. We believe strongly that adherence to these principles of fair information practices is essential to the goal of maintaining trust with our members and other individuals.

Applying our commitment to fair information practices means that the Rotary Club of The Palisades and the Secretariat adhere to the following principles to protect data:

1. We Will Only Collect And Use Information For Core Business Purposes: Individual privacy is very important, so we will only collect and use information needed to offer and fulfill our core business purposes. We will be lawful and fair to the individual whose data we are storing and will retain only what we need to maintain our relationship with them. This means we will not disclose information for an unrelated purpose without the consent of the individual or by authority of law.

2. We Will Strive For Data Quality: Our ability to successfully implement our mission is dependent on maintaining accurate information. We will strive to keep information we hold about Rotarians and other individuals accurate.

3. We Will Be Open About How We Use Data

We believe in the importance of safeguarding information collected about member and other individuals, and have adopted this belief statement and core privacy principles to reflect our commitment to privacy and data protection. All member and other individuals are encouraged to practice these principles. We put our commitment to privacy protection into action through organizational policies, guidelines and internal procedures that are designed to protect the data of members and other individuals. In our efforts to ensure that we are acting as conscientious stewards of information, we will periodically review our policies to confirm adherence to established practices.
