United Way of Jackson County (UWJC) recognizes the importance of protecting information we may collect from visitors to our site. Our policy is to use the information we acquire from visitors to our sites for internal purposes only, and we maintain appropriate security measures to keep this information private. The only exception is “Postings” to the blog which are reviewed and posted where appropriate.

Users can visit the site without revealing any personal information about themselves. If a visitor chooses to give us personal information via the internet for the purposes of correspondence or providing a subscription to a publication, then it is our intent to let the user know how we will use such information. User’s browsers automatically tell us the type of computer and operating system being used. We do track of the domains from which people visit us. We analyze this data for trends, insights and statistics, and then we discard it.

If a user tells us that they do not wish to have personal information used as a basis for further contact, we will respect those wishes. Information may be maintained on an opt in basis only for receipt of communication and products from United Way. Only users identifying themselves as 13 years or older will be permitted to opt in.

UWJC takes precautions to keep user information disclosed to us secure, and such information will not be disclosed to third parties for commercial purposes. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. UWJC uses SSL encryption for all financial transactions to protect personal information.

If you provide an email address or other personal information (excluding financial information) when you visit our site, we may, only with your express consent, enter such information into one of our data bases, so we can contact you to ask your input, provide information about our programs and events, website updates, and request contributions.

Use of Cookies

Certain sections of the UWJC web site use “cookies” to store user information. A cookie is a small string of text that a web site can send to your browser. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your email address. Currently, web sites use cookies to enhance the user’s visit; in general, cookies can identify which parts of a site have been visited. Cookies help us understand which parts of our web sites are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how long they spend there. We use cookies to study traffic patterns on our site so we can make the site even better.

Cookies were originally designed to help a web site distinguish a user’s browser as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. If you are just browsing UWJC’s web site, a cookie identifies only your browser. It is possible to set your browser to inform you when a cookie is being placed – this way, you have the opportunity to decide whether to accept the cookie. If you are just browsing our site, you do not have to accept a cookie and you can still continue browsing the site. However, if you are visiting a page where you will be accessing a confidential account, you must accept that site’s cookies because they are essential for site administration and security.
