PRIVACY POLICY FOR GFWC.ORG, MYVOLUNTEERYEAR.ORG, AND GFWCPASSIONPROJECT.ORG

This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for this website, which is owned by the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (“GFWC”). YOUR USE OF THIS WEBSITE SIGNIFIES YOUR ASSENT TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS SITE. YOUR USE OF THIS SITE IS ALSO SUBJECT TO OUR WEBSITE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

GFWC respects your privacy. In collecting and using information about you, we adhere to the following principles:

TYPES AND METHODS OF INFORMATION COLLECTION

GFWC may collect your personal information, such as your name, title, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, password, URL, log-in name, credit card information, and other information in connection with your use of this site, which may include:

Information Collected Through E-mails: When you open an e-mail sent by GFWC, we may receive a confirmation that you have opened the e-mail if your e-mail software supports such functionality. GFWC may also archive e-mails that we send to or receive from you.

Information Collected Automatically: Each time a visitor or user enters this website, the website hosting company's server collects basic technical information, including the visitor's domain name, e.g., aol.com; referral data, e.g., the last URL a user visited prior to entering the website; and browser and platform type, e.g., Netscape browser or a Macintosh platform. We also track and aggregate visitor activity in an analysis of general traffic flow. This information may be aggregated into group data, which then may be shared on an aggregated basis with third parties, but unless otherwise provided for in this policy, GFWC will not disclose individual identity or personal identifiable data without permission.

Information Collected Through Cookies: This website may use cookies to store your usernames and passwords. “Cookies” are small text files a website may use to recognize repeat visitors, facilitate the visitor's ongoing access to and use of the website, and allow the website to track the visitor's behavior and compile aggregate data for content improvements. Most Internet browsers will let you disable cookies. If you do so, you may not be able to use the “remember password,” “remember personal information,” shopping cart, or other features on this site.

SHARING YOUR INFORMATION

We may share information about our website users collected through this site with:

Except as provided herein, we will not share your contact information with other organizations for commercial or solicitation purposes except where notice is given. Note, however, that if you voluntarily post your e-mail address or other personal information on this site, you may receive unsolicited communications from third parties. Your participation in these features and your provision of personally identifiable information to GFWC or posting of personally identifiable information to this site constitutes your agreement to such sharing. GFWC is not responsible for any use by third parties of personally identifiable user data that you voluntarily post on this site.

SECURITY

All sites that provide for the collection and transmission of credit card information use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to help protect credit card information when it is transmitted to the site.  We maintain our own e-mail and mailing lists. GFWC employs password protection for all collected electronic data.  Users are warned, however, that the Internet and electronic databases may not be 100 percent secure.  Information that you provide may be subject to interception, and when you provide your information to us over the Internet, you do so at your own risk.

CORRECTION AND UPDATING OF YOUR INFORMATION

If you do not wish to receive mailings or e-mails from GFWC, you can opt out at any time.  GFWC allows you to log on to this site and review and/or correct your information in our databases. If you wish to review or have questions regarding your information, please e-mail us at GFWC@GFWC.org, write us at 1734 N ST NW, Washington, DC 20036-2990, or call 202/347-3168.

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. Such changes, modifications, additions, or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which will be given by posting the revised Policy on this page, provided that the use of any information previously collected by GFWC through this site will continue to be governed by the policy in effect when the information was collected. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this policy periodically, and to be aware of any modifications. Your continued use of our site after any such modifications will constitute your (a) acknowledgment of any modified Policy; and (b) agreement to abide and be bound by any modified Policy.
