Our Commitment to Privacy

We recognize that visitors to our site may be concerned about the information they provide to us, and how we handle that information. This privacy policy addresses those concerns. The link to this policy is easily accessible on our homepage and where personal information may be collected and is subject to change without notice.

The Information We Collect

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the WPA website. On some pages, we collect contact information for our mailing list and for online donations, for which we also collect credit card information.

How We Use Information

We use the information you provide about yourself when joining our mailing list or making an online donation only to complete the transaction and to ensure you are sent the information you requested. We do not share this information with third parties.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with third parties.

When visiting our site, you should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected by the WPA website through the use of “cookies.” Cookies are small text files a website can use to recognize repeat visitors, facilitate the visitor’s ongoing access to and use of the site, allow the site to track usage behavior, compile aggregate data to measure global, not individual activity, and to improve site content. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to deny or accept the cookies feature.

We never use or share personal information provided to us online in ways other than those described in this notice without also providing you an opportunity to remove your information or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Our Commitment to Data Security

The safety and security of your personal information and credit card transaction is important to us. We use high-grade encryption technology and https security protocol to communicate with your browser software. This method is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it very difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information you send to us. The company we work with to process credit card transactions also uses high-grade encryption and security protocols. Contributions can also be made by calling our Development office at 646-292-7754.

Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy

No part of our website is structured to attract anyone under the age of 13 and WPA does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. WPA urges all parents to monitor and participate in their children’s Internet experience and to teach them about protecting their personal information online.

How to Access or Correct Your Information

You can write, phone or email WPA to review or change information previously provided, or to discontinue receiving mailings from us.
