About Your Privacy
Your privacy is very important to us. The following information concerning the gathering and use of data is being provided to enable you to make knowledgeable choices about whether to provide information to us and to give you the opportunity to limit the manner in which data is used. We recognize that visitors to our site may be concerned about the information they provide to us, and how we treat that information.

United Way only gathers personally identifiable data: addresses, zip codes, e-mail addresses, etc. when voluntarily submitted by a visitor. For example, personally identifiable information may be collected in order to record a stated desire to donate online to United Way via a direct gift or though a company sponsored campaign. This information is used solely by United Way or other parties to the transaction for the purpose of executing the transaction.
Security when making online donations
We have addressed the safety and security of your transaction with the greatest consideration. We use a high-grade encryption and the https security protocol, SSL, to communicate with your browser software. This method is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept the information you send us.
