Effective Aug. 14, 2017
We will not sell, share or trade donors’ names or personal information with third-party advertisers, and will not send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations. Except as described below, all personal information volunteered by donors as part of the donation process is for use by authorized employees, contractors, board members, advisors and volunteers for purposes related to the United Way for Southeastern Michigan(“United Way” “we”, “us”, or “our”), which may include processing donations, expressing appreciation and providing receipts, record keeping, reporting as required by law, internal analytic purposes, further contact with donors for additional fundraising, and donor recognition in United Way’s publicly displayed materials. There are circumstances where we will transfer and/or disclose donors’ personal information to third parties. Those circumstances, subject to the limits of applicable law, are as follows:
United Way gives donors the opportunity to remain anonymous and to decline public and/or private recognition. Donors may request in writing that their names not be published in United Way materials or publicly (e.g., on donor lists).
United Way will make reasonable efforts to discontinue or change the method used to contact a donor after processing that person’s written request directed to United Way.
This policy applies to all information received as part of the donation process by United Way, both online and offline, on any platform, as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications.
Online donations to United Way may be processed by a third-party payment vendor. United Way cannot control how donor data is used by third-party service providers when an online donation is made to United Way via a third-party service provider. When using third-party sites you should review the privacy policies of such parties’ sites to understand how they collect and use personal information.
