Protecting Personal Information
A Workbook for NonProfit Organizations
This workbook will guide you through the process of documenting the personal information your organization collects and the purposes for collecting it. The workbook will assist you in adding appropriate notice and consent statements to your organization’s forms. You will also find information on an individual’s right to access his or her personal information from organizations that are subject to PIPA and information on other useful resources.
For brevity, in this workbook the term “staff” will be used to mean paid employees and volunteers. The term “client” will be used to refer to clients, customers and donors, as well as members, of the non‐profit organization.
The workbook outlines requirements for non‐profit organizations that are required to comply with PIPA. It also includes best practices that organizations may voluntarily decide to follow to protect the personal information of staff and clients.
