Donor Privacy Policy
Revised 4/17/2016

Devolve Films is committed to protecting the privacy of our donors. Devolve Films does not sell, trade or rent personal information about our donors with third-party organizations.

Data Collection

Devolve Films may collect personal data about donors for a number of reasons:

to administer and maintain accounts relating to donations;
to facilitate fundraising;
to communicate with donors and potential donors concerning the studio and studio
services; and
to comply with legal and regulatory requirements.

Such personal information may include: name, address, phone number, e-mail address and credit card number when a donor voluntarily provides it to us. In addition, Devolve Films keeps a record of each donor’s giving history. This information is kept on file for IRS purposes and is also used by the Development Department to analyze overall giving patterns in order to make more accurate budget projections.

Recognition and Reporting

Where appropriate, and with the knowledge and consent of the donor, the studio may publicly recognize the receipt and purpose of an individual gift. However, unless desired by the donor, studio staff will not disclose the amount of such gifts, except where required by law. Data on donors and donation amounts may be aggregated and stripped of identifying information for reporting purposes (including grant applications and government filings) without the explicit consent of the donors.


Office policies are in place to safeguard donor information, including:

physical measures, including locked filing cabinets and restricted access to offices.
organizational measures, such as security clearances and limiting access on a “need to
know” basis.
technological measures, such as the use of passwords and encryption.

Individual records are kept only as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which they were collected and to comply with applicable laws.

Opt-Out Policy

An individual may withdraw his or her consent to collection, use or disclosure at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. The studio makes reasonable efforts to keep donor files complete, up-to-date, and accurate. Donors who wish to access, update or correct personal contact information, remove themselves from our mailing list or discuss a privacy concern with the museum can contact the Development Department by phone at 1-626-229-6610 or via e-mail at
