"Cookies" may be used in connection with this site. A cookie is a small amount of identifier data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. By using cookies, information is potentially collected without your express knowledge.

How BGCWCC Uses the Information It Collects

BGCWCC uses the information it collects through this site to improve its marketing and promotional efforts, to improve its content, and to customize this site's services, content, and layout. BGCWCC may provide the information it collects through this site to BGCWCC's business partners, and to third parties who provide services on BGCWCC's behalf. BGCWCC may use the information it collects through this site to inform you of new services, changes, or promotions. If you do not want us to send you this type of information, please let us know by contacting us at info@bgcwcc.org. We will not disclose your personal information collected through this site to third parties except as described in this Privacy Policy without first informing you of such change in our disclosure practices and providing you a choice regarding such disclosure. 

Generally, BGCWCC may use cookies and the information they provide to: (a) remind it of who you are; (b) access your account information in order to deliver to you better and more personalized service; (c) estimate its audience size; (d) determine the nature and extent of repeat usage; and (e) measure certain traffic patterns to understand how users' habits are similar or different from one another, so that BGCWCC may improve its site.

BGCWCC understands the importance of privacy and confidentiality to users of this site.  From time to time, BGCWCC may share donor names and mailing addresses with other reputable nonprofit organizations on a limited basis in exchange for limited access to the names and addresses of their constituents.  We have found this is a cost-effective method of reaching additional potential constituents. These organizations will not have continued access to your name and address unless you choose to respond to their initial mailing.  We do not share email address data in connection with this list exchange. 

We respect our donors’ choices and control over their information.  You, as a donor, may, at any time, have your name excluded from any donor list exchange activity.  To ask that your name be excluded from list exchange activity or to otherwise change how BGCWCC contacts you, please email us at info@bgcwcc.org.

BGCWCC may disclose information it collects through this site when required to do so by a court, regulatory agency, subpoena, law, regulation, or other body of competent jurisdiction and authority, and for administrative and other purposes that BGCWCC deems necessary to maintain, service, and improve its products and services and to protect its rights and property. Finally, if you become involved in any violation of security, violation of this website's Terms of Use, or violation of any party's or third party's rights, BGCWCC may release information about you to assist in investigating, resolving, or remediating any such incidents.

 

Integrity and Security

Use of SSL and encryption – When BGCWCC transfers and receives certain types of sensitive information such as online donations and account information, we direct visitors to a secure server, which communicates via SSL encryption and which has been designed to reduce the possibility of interception and hacking. You’ll know that you’re in a secure area of our website when the "http" portion of the BGCWCC website address in your browser changes to "https." The "s" stands for "secure."

Restricting who has access to your information – BGCWCC employs commercially reasonable managerial and technical measures to help protect the security and integrity of the personal information it collects online through this site. You acknowledge, however, that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while BGCWCC strives to protect your personal information, BGCWCC cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to or from this site

 

Privacy Practices of Other Sites

This Privacy Policy only address the use and disclosure of information BGCWCC collects online through this site, not information that BGCWCC collects through other sources. For your convenience, this site may contain links, or addresses, that you can simply click to open other useful sites where we do not control the content or privacy policy. Carefully review the approach these sites take to your privacy before you use them or provide them with information.

We assume no liability for any unauthorized actions of third parties or accidental transmission errors that may disclose information about you, and BGCWCC is not responsible for these other sites' privacy practices, which may be different from BGCWCC's privacy practices.
