Privacy Policy

The privacy of your data is a big deal to us. YWCA Silicon Valley has created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate respect for your privacy preferences and to disclose our information collection and sharing practices. This policy applies to all information received by YWCA, both online and offline, from any third party website or mobile applications, as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications.

Please be assured that YWCA will not sell, share, or trade our donors’ names or personal data with any other entity, nor send mailings to donors on behalf of other organizations. In addition, the organization makes every effort to protect the privacy of visitors to its website. “Personal Data” is any information that enables us to identify you, directly or indirectly, by reference to any identifiers such as your name, identification number, location data, online identifier or one or more factors specific to your physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.

Website: Information Collected and Used

YWCA does not share any information collected on this site. Our donation/registration forms may require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, address and similar information. We will use personal information collected from you to send you information, such as newsletters, fundraising opportunities and information on our programs. If you elect not to receive such materials, we will not send them to you. Donors can indicate if they prefer to keep their donations anonymous. YWCA does not rent, sell or share our lists. In the event that this should this change, YWCA will respect all requests on the part of donors not to share their information. Should you wish to protect your name from being sold or shared in the event we change our policy in the future, please indicate this in an email to

Credit Card Information Security

The privacy and security of our donors’ data are critical to YWCA. In choosing an appropriate database and donation system, YWCA paid particular attention to securing donor financial information to ensure that we offer the highest level of protection to our donors. When our donation form asks donors to enter sensitive information, that information is encrypted and protected. YWCA’s donation system employs a Server Digital Certificate and the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Protocol to encrypt all data traffic. SSL technology is the standard used by online banking, stock brokerages, and retailers for securing their online transactions.

External Links

We may offer links to sites that are not operated by YWCA. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website. Please be aware that YWCA is not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

YWCA reserves the right, at any time to change this privacy policy by posting such changes on our site. Any such change will be effective immediately upon posting.
