Personal Information

CBM is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for the poorest of the poor children, women and men with disabilities around the globe. When you make a donation through our website or if you donate offline, we may ask you to submit certain personal information so we can process your donation. We define personal information as information that is unique to an individual and might include the following: name, age, contact and billing information, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers.

We use the credit card information you provide only to fulfill the transaction you requested. We maintain your contact information in our records so we can contact you to provide CBM program information and additional giving opportunities.

CBM will never ask you to confirm your bank details via e-mail. If you should receive an e-mail requesting such information, please contact us. This kind of email may be from someone attempting to obtain your banking details (phishing). You are always advised to protect your details and contact CBM directly with any concerns.

Purpose of Collection of Personal Information

CBM collects personal information for the following limited purposes:

  • To establish and maintain donor information
  • To keep track of donor preferences
  • To keep donors informed of CBM’s work and new opportunities for support
  • To establish and maintain contact and mailing lists

CBM collects information from our website visitors via our online web forms.

How CBM Uses Your Personal Information

If we do receive your personal information, we will only use it for the purposes described where it is collected, and we will not sell, rent, exchange, share or trade a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings, emails, or any communications on behalf of other organizations without prior donor consent, unless required by law.

Security Statement

CBM has taken reasonable steps and has in place appropriate security measures to protect your personal information, including keeping your financial information private and safe. We use Internet encryption software, password protection with limited access of private information by staff members, and meet the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. If you make donations on our website we will ask for credit card information, but we do not store the information after the secure transaction is complete. You acknowledge, however, that no transmission of data over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, despite our best efforts. Thus, while we will use all commercially reasonable means possible to ensure the security of information you transmit to us, we cannot guarantee that such information will not be intercepted by third parties.


CBM is committed to preserving online privacy for all of the visitors to our website, including children. Our website is a general audience website, and we do not knowingly collect information about children or provide services to children on our website. Consistent with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, we will not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13. The CBM website is not designed to attract anyone under the age of 18.
