Evaluation Conclusions

This organization has been evaluated according to the 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability. Donors must decide for themselves the relative importance of the Standards in question.

BBB was not able to verify the following 1 Standards for Charity Accountability.

18:Address privacy concerns of donors by: (a) providing in written appeals, at least annually, a means (e.g., such as a check off box) for both new and continuing donors to inform the charity if they do not want their name and address shared outside the organization, (b) providing a clear, prominent and easily accessible privacy policy on any of its websites that tells visitors (i) what information, if any, is being collected about them by the charity and how this information will be used, (ii) how to contact the charity to review personal information collected and request corrections, (iii) how to inform charity (e.g., a check off box) that the visitor does not wish his/her personal information to be shared outside the organization, and (iv) what security measures the charity has in place to protect personal information.

The JCCCC does not meet provision (b) of this standard because the organization's website, www.caldwellcenter.org, does not provide access to a privacy policy that includes the recommended privacy information.

James C. Caldwell Community Center meets the remaining 19 Standards for Charity Accountability.
