Privacy Policy


The TEAK Fellowship is committed to the privacy of our donors, students, families, and alumni, and has instituted the following policies to protect them from the unwanted dissemination of personal information.


Use of Information
The TEAK Fellowship does not share personal information about our donors, students, or alumni with outside parties without permission. Under no circumstances does TEAK ever share or sell the names or contact information of any donors, students, or alumni to any organizations for solicitation purposes. In the interest of measuring the effectiveness of the program, The TEAK Fellowship collects demographic, educational, and professional information about our alumni. Aggregate data derived from such information is shared with a variety of constituencies.


Online Gifts and Credit Card Transactions
The TEAK Fellowship offers donors and alumni the opportunity to make online credit card gifts, as well as purchase tickets to events through the site. Credit card information is not stored permanently, and is used only to process the transaction for which it is intended. The operators of this site would like to assure you that measures have been taken to make such transactions secure for its members,  including monthly recurring donations. Information collected via this website will be used to update our database.


This site utilizes industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) servers to encrypt your information and prevent unauthorized access. Shortly after a purchase or refund is processed, you will receive a confirmation via email. You are advised to print out and save a copy of the order confirmation for verification necessary to request refunds or resolve any disputes.


This website guarantees that every transaction will be 100 percent safe. This means you are not responsible for unauthorized transactions posted to your credit card that occur as a result of submitting a credit card number to this site. This site uses industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) servers on our transaction pages. It encrypts all of your personal information including name, address, and credit card number to prevent unauthorized access as the information travels over the Internet.


Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges. If your bank does hold you liable for any of this $50.00, this site will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50.00. This site will cover this liability only if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own from transactions made at this site while using the secure server.
