Privacy Policy

Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Dakota, Inc. (RMHC SoDak) is pleased to provide information about its online privacy policy. Please be assured that RMHC SoDak uses its best efforts to protect the privacy of visitors to this Web site.

Types of Information Collected and How It Is Used
RMHC SoDak gathers personal information, such as first and last names, home addresses, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and credit card numbers, only when voluntarily submitted by you. If you make an online donation, personal information will be collected from you to process that donation.

With your permission, we will use personal information collected from you to send you information, such as RMHC SoDak updates or information regarding events, fund-raising campaigns, or major grant initiatives.

Sharing of Personal and Donor Information
Companies may be engaged by RMHC SoDak to perform a variety of functions, such as assisting with donation collection, providing technical services for our Internet sites, etc. Such companies may have access to personal and donor information if needed to perform certain functions. However, these companies may use such personal information only for the purpose of performing that function and may not use it for any other purpose.

Other than as provided in this privacy policy, RMHC SoDak does not sell, transfer, or disclose personal information to third parties.

RMHC SoDak reserves the right to use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation, or legal request, to protect the integrity of the site, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a public safety matter.

Security of Payment Information
RMHC SoDak uses Qgiv (, a third-party service provider, for payment processing and payment transactions. Qgiv represents that it is compliant with PCI DSS requirements, and fully adheres to PCI standards regarding secure payment processing and storage of data, strong access control, and other requirements. For further information, visit Qgiv’s PCI Compliance page: Since RMHC SoDak uses a vendor to process credit card payments made through our web site and to store associated payment data, RMHC SoDak does not directly collect payment card information, nor does RMHC SoDak store or have access to payment card information submitted online. For donations made offline, RMHC SoDak may directly collect, store, or have access to payment card information for processing payments, and adheres to PCI DSS requirements for these types of transactions.
