United Way's Privacy Policy | United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg

Your Privacy

As the pledge processor, United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg (UWGRP) understands the trust you place in us when you release your personal information (addresses, zip codes, e-mail addresses, etc).  Your personal information is collected in order to provide you with excellent customer service and a quick and easy online experience.  This information is used solely by your company’s official designees (for payroll deductions and campaign maintenance), UWGRP official designees and/or a secure online merchant bank (for credit card transactions).  Because we value and respect your privacy, UWGRP has taken great care to ensure the security of this site and your transactions.  United e-Way has earned the VeriSign security certificate, so you know your information is in good hands.

Information Collection and Use

UWGRP will never sell or rent information collected on this site.  UWGRP shares the information with your payroll administrator in order to process your payroll deduction gifts.  If you designate your donation, UWGRP releases your acknowledgement information to your specified agency(s) if you choose to be acknowledged.  If you prefer to remain anonymous, UWGRP does not release your name or any other information to an agency.  UWGRP does use information collected here for research and analysis. However, UWS only releases summary data in public studies.

Your Security

We take every precaution to protect the safety and security of your transaction both online and off-line.  We use a high-grade encryption and the https security protocol, Secure Socket Layer (SSL), to communicate with your browser software.  This method is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept the information you send us.  While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user information off-line.  Only authorized UWGRP employees are granted access to your personal information. All servers that store your personal information are kept in a secure environment.
