Our General Policy
United Way Worldwide (UWW) recognizes the importance of protecting the information we may collect from visitors to our site. Our policy is to use the information we acquire from visitors to our sites for internal purposes only, and we maintain appropriate security measures to keep this information private. The only exception is “Postings” which is discussed above. Your browser, however, does automatically tell us the type of computer and operating system you are using.
Users can visit the site without revealing any information about themselves. If one chooses to give us personal information via the Internet for the purposes of correspondence, processing an order, or providing a subscription to a publication, then it is our intent to let you know how we will use such information.
If users tell us that they do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact, we will respect those wishes. We do keep track of the domains from which people visit us. We analyze this data for trends, insights, and statistics, and then we discard it. Information may be maintained on an opt in basis only for receipt of communication and products from United Way. Only users of 13 years or older can opt in.
UWW takes precautions to keep the user information disclosed to us secure, and such information will not be disclosed to third parties for commercial purposes. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. UWW uses SSL encryption for all financial transactions to protect personal information.
If you provide an email address or other personal information (excluding financial information) when you visit our site, we may enter such information into one of our databases so we can contact you to ask your input, provide information about our programs and events, and request contributions. We may also share your information with your Local United Way to be used solely for the foregoing specified purposes. If you would like us to withhold your information from such an exchange, please contact us.
If you have any questions about this User Agreement, contact UWW. If you do not agree with these terms of this User Agreement, you may not use the site. UWW reserves the right to change this User Agreement at any time without notice.
