The Women’s Center is committed to properly securing the personal information we collect. To help us accomplish this, we take the following steps:
- Our internal access controls ensure that the only people who see your information are those with a need to do so to perform their official duties.
- We train our staff on our privacy and security measures.
- We physically secure the areas where we hold hard copies of the information that we collect.
- We regularly back up the information that we collect to protect against loss.
- We use technical controls to secure the information that we collect online as appropriate, including but not limited to:
- Secure Socket Layer (SSL), encryption, firewalls, and password protections.
Like most organizations, The Women’s Center does maintain internal lists of contact information. Because your name, physical mail and e-mail addresses are confidential, we never share any list with outside parties. Only specific agency staff and certain technical contractors are allowed access to the areas of the computer systems in which we store our lists. Lists are accessed only for the purpose of upgrading our computer systems or distributing professional communications that help us accomplish our mission as a nonprofit organization.
Any contact information or any correspondence sent by clients, donors or web visitors to The Women’s Center via regular mail, online through forms, through fax, email, or any other means is never sold to third parties under any circumstances.
The Women’s Center may from time to time acknowledge the generosity of our donors on our website. Businesses and organizations that donate to The Women’s Center may occasionally be thanked at special events, in our newsletter or in media releases. If an organization or individual wishes to have their name removed from the website or other lists we publish, please contact The Women’s Center and the request will be met as soon as possible.
Donor information is used for agency purposes only. The Women’s Center will not share or sell donor information, nor send mailings on behalf of other organizations.
Online forms are posted on our website to offer our web visitors the ability to donate and to register online for certain agency programs or services. Information submitted via an online form is never shared with a third party.
