These three documents will be available on request from CESRA to the inquiring public.
How CESRA May Use Personal Information

Our research may lead to the publication of aggregate demographic data but will not result in the reporting or publication of any personal information provided to us.

Donor inquiries (i.e. individuals asking about specific charities to assist in making their giving decisions) may be forwarded by email, and donors should recognize that this method of transmission may not be secure. We will also release personal information under the following circumstances:
- Where release is required by law (for example, a subpoena) or regulation, or is requested by an agency for governmental investigative purposes or governmental proceedings;
- Where our records indicate a company may be engaged in fraudulent activity or other deceptive practices that a governmental agency should be made aware of; or
- To appropriate persons, where your communication suggests possible harm to others.
