    Perinatal Quality Improvement Portal: When we communicate with you as a registered team member, your personal contact information, such as your email address, may be shared with other team members at hospitals participating in the same initiative or program. If you contribute to the blog which is set up for your initiative or program at the PQIP, the information you provide, together with your name, username and email address, will be visible to anyone who has access to that blog.

    Information provided offline: rental lists and co-operatives

    The March of Dimes may rent to or exchange with third parties the names and postal addresses of donors or volunteers (e.g., Mothers March participants) that have provided us with their name and address offline, as a way of raising funds to support important functions and services. These third parties may include March of Dimes event sponsors and other nonprofit and commercial companies. Such parties are carefully screened and must comply with use policies established by the March of Dimes.

    We may also provide certain personal information obtained offline -- such as a donor’s name, address and giving history -- to companies and cooperatives that use the information to help the March of Dimes improve its fundraising efforts. These companies and cooperatives may use this personal information to advise other third parties in their marketing and fundraising campaigns and may share your name and address, but no associated personal information, with those third parties.
