Terms and Conditions

Information Practices

The Endowment Fund of the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity (d/b/a Phi Kappa Psi Foundation; Phi Psi Foundation) (the “Foundation”), understands that security and privacy are important issues for visitors to our websites, www.PKPFoundation.org, www.Laurel-Hall.org and www.NelsonLeadershipInstitute.org (collectively the “Site”), and recognizes our obligation to keep your information secure and confidential. That is why we maintain the following standards to help protect information that personally identifies you. We may modify this Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) at any time and, accordingly, we urge you to frequently review the Policy. We will always apply the Policy under which your information was collected, unless we obtain your prior consent for additional disclosure, or are legally required to disclose, as noted below.

Collection of Information

You may be asked to voluntarily provide your name, address, phone number, email address, credit card number, billing address, educational information, financial information or other personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) to make online donations, complete grant and scholarship applications, or to have access to some features of the Site. By using the Site and providing us with your Personal Information, you consent to our use of such information as described in this Policy. You may always refuse to provide your Personal Information, but this may lead to our inability to provide you with certain services. We may also collect information that is anonymous, such as your IP number (a number used to identify your computer on the Internet) or the type of browser you are using (“Anonymous Information”), through the use of cookies or by other means. We hope that, by using Anonymous Information, we can update the Site to make it more useful to you and other users. We reserve the right to maintain, update, disclose or otherwise use Anonymous Information, without limitation.

Use of Personal Information

We use your Personal Information for the following purposes, as applicable: to process online donations and administer your account; to process grant and scholarship applications; to administer and improve the Site and related services; to notify you of events or information that may be of interest to you; to provide Internet security; and to meet legal requirements. The Foundation may work with third party service providers who perform certain functions on our behalf, including, for example, collecting electronic grant and scholarship applications, sending email messages, processing credit card payments, managing data or stewarding contributions. These third party service providers may have access to your Personal Information only to the extent necessary to perform their specific functions for the Foundation and may not use it for any other purpose. Other than for the specific purposes set forth in this Policy, we will not disclose your Personal Information unless we obtain your prior consent or are legally required to do so.

Privacy of Children

We encourage parents and guardians to be aware of and participate in their children’s online activities. The Foundation strictly adheres to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and will not knowingly collect, use, or disclose Personal Information from any child under the age of thirteen (13) in any manner that violates this law.

Your Opportunity to Opt-out of Email Correspondence

In the event you do not wish to receive informational emails from the Foundation, please follow the opt-out instructions contained within the body of any email message you receive.


When you visit the Site, the Foundation or one of its partners may store or recognize some information on your computer in the form of a “cookie” or similar file that can help us improve the Site. For example, the use of cookies allows us to tailor the Site to better match your interests and preferences. With most Internet browsers or other software, you can erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions to learn more about these functions. If you reject cookies, functionality of the Site may be limited, and you may not be able to take advantage of some of the Site’s features.


The Site may contain links to web sites operated by third parties. These links are provided to you for informational purposes only; once you connect with another site by choosing a link, you will no longer be on the Foundation’s Site. Please review each linked website’s privacy policy, and if you do not agree to be bound by the terms of the policy governing that site, terminate your visit to that site. We are not responsible for the privacy policies, practices, or content of websites operated by third parties. Therefore, the Foundation disclaims any liability for any third party’s use of your Personal or Anonymous Information obtained through using the third party website.


We have procedures in place to protect the privacy and confidentiality of your Personal Information that we collect and maintain. All Personal Information is stored on our secured servers, behind a firewall at a data center with access to data strictly controlled. We use Secure Sockets Layering (SSL) to encrypt your personal credit information, including your credit card number, before it travels over the Internet. Any unauthorized use of the Site may result in criminal and/or civil prosecution.
