In a world where Facebook, Google, and other social networking sites can provide a wealth of information with just a simple click of your mouse, we are striving to further protect the anonymity of our donors with the use of pseudonyms. While it is already difficult to locate someone based off of a first name, picture, and limited information, we feel it is important to add another layer of security for our donors by providing you with a pseudonym.
While PFC Egg Donor Agency has asked you to share detailed information about where you live, go to school, and where you work, we only share a very general version of these subjects in your public profile that Intended Parents will view. We do not disclose the city you live in, the names of any colleges you have attended, or the name of your employer. Without such specific information, we are confident that it would be very difficult for someone to locate you through the Internet.
While we are confident it would be difficult to locate you, it is always possible that with technological advancements and the growing number of social networking sites that it may not be impossible. Here are some suggestions for steps you can take in order to protect your personal information and identity;
- Do not use a nickname that friends or family call you as your pseudonym.
- Always use your pseudonym for anything relating to egg donation.
- Change your privacy settings on all social networking sites so that only people you know can see your personal information and pictures.
- Do not post any photos on the Internet or social networking sites that are being used in your donor profile.
If you have any additional questions or concerns about donating your eggs or the security of your personal information please do not hesitate to contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 415-834-3075.
