Privacy Policy

Sojourners is committed to preserving your privacy and safeguarding your information. None of your personal data, including email address and physical address, is ever shared beyond our own platforms or sold. The following statements describe our general information-gathering and usage practices:

Subscriptions

Magazine Subscriptions
Personal identifying information (data about you) is collected when you subscribe, through the webpages hosted on our site. These webpages are hosted for Sojourners by our Circulation Service Provider, Cambey & West Inc.

This Personal identifying information (PII) includes your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number that you provided. You will have also provided a credit card to pay for your subscription, and while needed for processing your payment, the card number is not stored. Instead the transaction id received back from the card processor is stored. All of the PII data is stored within the Cambey & West system, which has been tested and verified to be PCI compliant as a Level 1 Service Provider by an independent agency. This is a thorough and rigorous testing of the security, proving the inability to penetrate and acquire any data stored within it.

When you submitted a subscription form hosted on our site, you entered into an agreement with us to provide you the subscription you requested in exchange for PII and the subscription fees. Your data will not be shared with any third parties without your express consent.Your PII is retained for the duration of your subscription.

Since this is your data, at any point you have the right to:

  • access and review your data
  • correct your data
  • withdraw your consent
  • be forgotten, erasure of your data.

You can manage your subscription by logging in and going here or contact sojourners@sojo.net / 202.328.8842 to request changes to your account. Requests will be addressed in 30 days or less.

Donor Privacy Policy

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we rely on the generous contributions of our supporters. We value the faithful support of our financial community and therefore take the privacy of our donors very seriously.

Out of mutual respect we will not rent, sell, or exchange any personal donor information with outside parties, organizations, or individuals. This includes all relevant information obtained through online donation forms, dispatched appeals, phone calls, and in person solicitation. Online credit card donations are processed securely by our contracted e-commerce service. We maintain this information in our database in order to keep you up-to-date on our future work and related issues that may be of interest. If you wish to refrain from receiving our emails and/or direct mail solicitation, you can contact our office at donate@sojo.net or call 202-328-8842.
