WNYIL, Inc. Donor Privacy Policy

 

WNYIL, Inc. Respects Your Privacy

 

WNY Independent Living, Inc. is committed to respecting the privacy of its financial and in-kind donors, whether the donation is made online, by mail, or any other method. When you make a financial or in-kind donation, you provide your name and contact information. Financial donors provide standard payment information including, in many circumstances, credit card data. We protect your information in a variety of ways, as described below.

 

Personal Information

 

“Personal Information” is information that identifies you personally, such as your name, address, telephone number, and email address. We collect and store the personally identifiable information that you have provided us. Here are some examples of ways in which we may collect your information.

 

  • When you request information via one of the email addresses identified on our website or otherwise contact us in person, by phone     or email, with a question. We may then collect your name, address and email in order to respond to that inquiry.

 

  • We may collect your name, email address and other contact information if you register and/or pay for an event.

 

  • We may collect your name, email address, telephone number and payment information when you make a contribution, either on our website, over the phone or by mailing in a check.

 

  • Many donors use credit cards for donations. We protect the security of credit card transactions using measures such as access controls, network firewalls, and physical security. These measures make it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept the credit card information you send to us. When we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, those companies also use appropriate security measures.

 

The above list provides a sample of personal information that may be collected by WNY Independent Living, Inc. From time to time, we may collect personal information from you in ways not described above.

 

Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

 

  • We will not sell, trade, or share your personal information, collected on the website or through any other business activities, with anyone else.

 

  • We will not send you mailings on behalf of other organizations.

 

  • We will only share your personal information if you give us specific permission to do so.

 

  • We will collect payment information, billing address and other information necessary to process a donation or event registration.

 

  • We will use your information to comply with the law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the requirements of law or comply with legal process served on us, protect and defend our rights or act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of others.

 

  • We will use the personal information to protect against potential fraud. We may verify with third parties the information collected in the course of processing a gift, event registration or other donation. If you use a credit or debit card on the website, we may use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your card information and address matches the information that you supplied to us and that the card being used has not been reported lost or stolen.

 

  • You have the right to review information that we have collected about you. To review that information please contact the Corporate Compliance Officer in writing, at 3108 Main Street, Buffalo, NY 14214.

 

Except as described in this Privacy Policy or at the time we request the information, we do not otherwise disclose your personal information to any third parties.

 

Changes to the Privacy Policy

 

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we do, we will note the last update at the bottom of this Privacy Policy. For changes to this policy that may be materially less restrictive on our use or disclosure of your personally identifiable information, we will obtain your consent before implementing the change by sending a notice to your primary email address and home address specified in our records and by placing a prominent notice on our website.
