Privacy Policy

We at Research to Prevent Blindness are committed to responsible information-handling practices. The names and addresses of contributors to RPB and prospective donors (including contributions made both online and offline) are never shared with any third party.

We take your privacy seriously and want you to feel comfortable whenever you visit our website, write a check to RPB or interact with us in any other way. Thus, RPB has instituted the following safeguards, of which you should be aware:

Internal Use

We use information collected exclusively for institutional purposes such as improving relationships with our members and the quality of the user experience our website provides.

Security Software

We deploy industry-standard security protocol and strong encryption technology to shield and maintain the integrity of information you send us through our digital forms.

Voluntary Disclosure

We do not gather any personally identifiable information (such as name, zip code, and e-mail address) without your knowledge and consent.

Third Parties

We do not disclose any personally identifiable information with which you furnish us to third parties other than those that you have authorized (for example, credit card or financial services companies that you wish to process your transactions) unless RPB believes in good faith that disclosure is required by law. RPB exerts no control over, and is in no way responsible for, the information-handling practices of third parties.

Need to Know

Your information is highly confidential within our organization as well; as such, it is restricted to employees who need it to perform a specific function (such as to supply technical support for account logins or to add an honorary mention to our benefactor memorial).


In the event that our Privacy Policy Statement changes, RPB will publish the changes directly on this web page. Please check periodically for updates.
