Protecting Your Privacy

The SBM Charitable Foundation, Inc. (“the Foundation”/ “SBMCF”), maintains the highest level of confidentiality with respect to your scholarship application information. Members of the Foundation scholarship staff are the only individuals who have knowledge of the names of the scholarship applicants. For all other individuals in the scholarship review process, the names of the scholarship applicants are not disclosed. The Foundation may share your scholarship application information with the Foundation scholarship staff, the Foundation scholarship committee members, the financial analyst utilized by the scholarship staff and scholarship committee, and your high school, college, and/or university (collectively “third parties”). This limited sharing of your application information is used by the Foundation to help process your application, perform statistical analysis, send correspondence, provide student support, or to arrange for deliveries of scholarship packets and other related materials. Such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except in performance of their services for the Foundation relating to your scholarship application, and all third parties are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information. The Foundation does not sell, trade, or exchange your scholarship application information. Scholarship application visitors to the SBMCF website are not tracked in any way by the Foundation. From time to time, the names of scholarship recipients may be listed in press releases and on the Foundation website. The Foundation, however, will only use the name of a scholarship recipient after receiving the scholarship recipient’s permission.
