United Way of Santa Rosa County Privacy Policy

United Way of Santa Rosa County (UWSRC) is pleased to provide information to all of its customers about its privacy policy. Please be assured that UWSRC uses its best efforts to protect the privacy of visitors to this Web site.

Types of Information Collected and How It Is Used
UWSRC gathers personal information, such as first and last names, home addresses, e-mail addresses and credit card numbers, only when voluntarily submitted by you. If you make an online donation, personal information will be collected from you in order to process that donation. With your permission, we will use personal information collected from you to send you information, such as UWSRC updates or information regarding fund-raising campaigns or major grant initiatives. If you do not elect to receive such materials, we will not send them to you.

Sharing of Personal Information 
Companies may be engaged by UWSRC to perform a variety of functions, such as assisting with donation collection, providing technical services for our Internet sites, etc. Such companies may have access to personal information if needed to perform certain functions. However, these companies may use such personal information ONLY for the purpose of performing that function and may NOT use it for any other purpose. Other than as provided in this privacy policy, UWSRC does not sell, transfer or disclose personal information to third parties.  UWSRC reserves the right to use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of the site, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a public safety matter.

Security

We take precautions to protect your information.  When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Whenever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for the closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the webpage.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline.  Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information.  The computers/servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

If at any time, you would like to correct the personal information we have about you or if you would like to change your preferences for contacts from us, you can let us know by contacting us at the postal address listed below.
