Personally identifiable information
WCAEF collects personally identifiable information (such as names, mailing addresses and email addresses) from Users when they voluntarily provide such information to us, including, for example, when Users sign up to receive our email alerts, when Users sign a form to volunteer for WCAEF, or when Users make a financial donation to WCAEF.
How WCAEF Uses the Information that it Collects
WCAEF uses Users’ personal information to better understand how Users use the Website so that WCAEF can improve the Website and its offerings. WCAEF also uses Users’ personal information for the purpose for which the Users provided the information, in other words, to provide requested information, to process a donation, or to otherwise fulfill a request. If you provide WCAEF with your email address and/or mailing address, WCAEF will add you to its email and/or mailing list, and may contact you with information that WCAEF thinks will be of interest to you. If at any time you wish to stop receiving communications from WCAEF, please follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of any email WCAEF sends you, or send WCAEF an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be removed from WCAEF distribution lists.
By providing your mobile number you consent to receive communications and messages from Washington Conservation Action Education Fund and its affiliates, concerning WCAEF-related news, action opportunities, and other important information, including by autodialed call and text message and pre-recorded messages or messages that use an artificial voice. For text messages, carrier data and message rates may apply. You can opt out at any time by emailing email@example.com or texting “STOP” to 52886.
How WCAEF Protects User Information
WCAEF adopts appropriate data collection, storage, and processing practices and security measures to help protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of your personal information, but WCAEF cannot guarantee that your information is 100% secure. Your credit card information is stored in a manner that is PCI compliant.
Sharing Personal Information
WCAEF shares Users’ personally-identifiable information (such as names, mailing addresses and email addresses, but never credit card information) with Environmental Priorities Coalition, of which WCAEF is a member. See http://environmentalpriorities.org/. WCAEF does not currently share Users’ personally identifiable information with other third parties (other than as specified in this section). WCAEF may also share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personally identifiable information regarding Users with third parties. WCAEF may use third party service providers to help it operate its business and the Website or administer activities on WCAEF’s behalf, such as collecting donations on WCAEF’s behalf. WCAEF may share User information with these third parties for those limited purposes but WCAEF requires that such third parties protect the confidentiality of your information and use it for no other purpose.
WCAEF may also release personal information if required to do so by law, or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws or to respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant.
Third Party Websites
Compliance with Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act
Protecting the privacy of the young is especially important. For that reason, WCAEF never collects information at the Website from those WCAEF knows are under 13, and no part of the Website is structured to attract anyone under 13. If WCAEF becomes aware of having information about anyone under 13, WCAEF will promptly delete the information.
California Privacy Rights
If you reside in California and have provided your personally identifiable information to WCAEF, you may request information once per calendar year about WCAEF’s disclosures of certain categories of your personally identifiable information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Such requests must be submitted to WCAEF at firstname.lastname@example.org.
