All information provided to United Way is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our website that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of United Way. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100 percent secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, email format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers.
United Way retains information provided by users in a secure database. This database of information may be used to verify donation transactions, thank supporters for their contributions, keep supporters informed or to solicit future donations. United Way understands that most people do not want a lot of mail or e-mail, so we keep our communication frequency within reasonable limits. You may be removed from our database at your request. All information is secure and credit card information is not held in this database.
United Way collects an IP address from all visitors to our website. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our website, analyze trends, track users' movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
United Way's online credit card donation transactions are transmitted over secure sockets and are certified by VeriSign. Your personal information is protected and handled in accordance with laws enacted to protect consumers like you.
United Way may share macro-level tracking information with third parties for various reasons, among them to attract potential advertisers and/or grant-makers and to enhance the effectiveness of its website through consultants. At no time will personally identifiable information that you provide be shared with any of these or any other third parties.
If at any time you believe the information collected by United Way is incorrect or inappropriate, simply contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have your information changed.
