The Bob Woodruff Foundation (“BWF”) is committed to safeguarding your privacy. This statement explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way the information you provide us is collected and used. For easy and direct access, we provide a link to this statement from our home page and all other pages of the site.
BWF is the sole owner of and the only organization that uses the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others under any circumstances, including third-party fundraising or marketing purposes. This policy also applies to information collected offline.
Personal Information Security
The BWF takes precautions to protect your personal information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data, address, email, phone number), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the BWF website address.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or donor relations) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Other than the specific instances outlined in this policy, BWF does not collect personal information about users or how they use the site. BWF also does not use the information-tracking devices made possible through “cookies,” small pieces of data that may be sent to your Web browser from a server and stored on your computer’s hard drive.
BWF collects the following information through our secure online financial-transaction pages: name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and credit card information. This personally identifiable information is used to acknowledge receipt of your donation for tax purposes and to include you on BWF’s mailing list.
When you send a donation in honor or in memory of someone and request that an acknowledgement be sent to another individual or a family, we will use the name and address of that individual or family for acknowledgement purposes only.
BWF is the sole owner of and the only organization that uses the information collected from donors in person, through the mail or other correspondence. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others under any circumstances, including third-party fundraising or marketing purposes.
BWF provides a separate online form to join our mailing list. The information we collect includes: name and e-mail address. This information is securely stored internally and accessed only when we correspond with our mailing list periodically during the year, either via e-mail or regular mail.
Please contact us directly by regular mail if at any time you wish to be removed from the mailing list or if you would like to correct or change the personal information you have previously provided.
