Donor Information Collection and Use
Protecting the confidentiality of personally identifiable information of our donors collected through our website or other means has been, and will continue to be, a top priority of United Way of Metropolitan Dallas. United Way of Metropolitan Dallas only gathers personally identifiable data (examples: addresses, zip codes, email addresses) when voluntarily submitted by you or your company. Except as stated herein, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas will not disclose, sell, share, trade, or rent any personally identifiable data collected on this site. This information is used by your company’s payroll administrator (for payroll deductions), United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, or a secure online merchant bank (for credit cards & e-checks) for the purpose of executing the transaction. United Way of Metropolitan Dallas may use your information for other internal purposes, including communications to make you aware of how your donations are being spent, events, newsletters, and other general information relating to United Way of Metropolitan Dallas.
United Way of Metropolitan Dallas may, from time to time, contract with outside vendors to conduct donor interest and satisfaction research. All outside vendors contracting with United Way of Metropolitan Dallas will sign a non-disclosure agreement stating that personally identifiable data will not be used for any purpose other than for the research project commissioned by United Way of Metropolitan Dallas.
United Way of Metropolitan Dallas may also share personally identifiable data with its affiliate agencies. We will also release personally identifiable data about you, if necessary, in order to comply with valid legal processes such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order. United Way of Metropolitan Dallas reserves the right to use all information, including personally identifiable data, at its disposal and to share this information with internet service providers and other third parties as necessary to investigate any incident of misuse or abuse of its site, server, or information systems.
Other Web sites that you may link to from our site, including our partners’ Web sites, maintain their own privacy policies. United Way of Metropolitan Dallas is not responsible for the privacy practices of other Web sites or affiliate agencies. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of Web sites or affiliate agencies before providing them with any of your personally identifiable information.
The information which United Way of Metropolitan Dallas automatically gathers, such as the number and frequency of visitors to our site and its areas, is used only in the aggregate. This collective data helps us determine how often visitors use which parts of the site, so that we can improve our site in response to visitor usage. We also may provide aggregated statistical “ratings” information, never information about you personally, to our United Way of Metropolitan Dallas partners about how our visitors, collectively, use our Web Site.
You are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having your personally identifiable data used for communication purposes. You can select to opt-out on any of our email, registration, or donation forms. You may also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Credit Card and Bank Account Information
United Way of Metropolitan Dallas appreciates the great trust you place in us when you share with us your credit card or bank account information. Protecting this information is a responsibility we do not take lightly. As such, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas regularly reviews its procedures and systems for compliance with federal regulations and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
We take every precaution to protect the safety and security of your transaction both online and off-line. We use a high-grade encryption and the https security protocol, SSL, to communicate with your browser software. This method is the industry standard in security protocol, helping to keep your personally identifiable data as secure as possible.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user-information off-line. Only United Way of Metropolitan Dallas authorized employees are granted access to personally identifiable data. All servers on which personally identifiable data is stored are kept in a secure environment.
If we change our privacy statement, we will post those changes prominently so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone.
