Our Policy
The American Red Cross uses its best efforts to respect and protect the privacy of our online visitors and donors. We will not share your e-mail address with third parties.

The American Red Cross may share financial donor postal mailing lists with other non-profits for a one-time use by the other non-profit. If you are a financial donor to the American Red Cross, you may request that we withhold your mailing information from any list exchanges with other non-profits. Please e-mail us at In the subject field, type "Do Not Exchange" and provide us your name, e-mail or postal address depending on how you made your contribution to our organization. American Red Cross lists are never sold to third parties.

Is Credit Card Information Secure?
We care about the safety and security of your transaction. We use high grade encryption and the https security protocol to communicate with your browser software. This method is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information you send to us. Companies we work with to process credit card transactions also use high grade encryption and security protocols.

Is My Personal Information Secure?
Yes. The same high grade encryption and https security protocols used for financial transactions on our site are used in collecting personal information to schedule your blood donation. Blood donations may also be scheduled by calling 1-800-GIVE-LIFE or your local American Red Cross Blood Services Region.

We Care About Doing It Right
In addition to maintaining privacy and security controls over information you share with us, the American Red Cross works to accurately process your contribution information. During business hours, staff are available to answer questions about your financial donation or scheduled blood donation at

The American Red Cross employs error checking procedures to make certain transactions are processed completely and accurately. As necessary, changes are made to improve our systems. And, independent external and internal audits are conducted to ensure the privacy, security and appropriate processing of your information on our site.
