Progress Virginia Privacy Policy

Updated January 2017

Our Commitment to Privacy
Progress Virginia knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate you trusting that we will do so carefully. To better protect your privacy, we provide this Privacy Policy explaining our practices and choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by Progress Virginia. The information below explains our policy regarding your privacy, both online and offline. By visiting www.progressva.org or sharing personal information with Progress Virginia you are accepting the practices described in the Privacy Notice.

Our www.progressva.org website is maintained by Progress Virginia.

Data collection
When you visit our website or make a donation online or offline, you may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information) that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes. These purposes include registering to receive email newsletters or other materials, requesting further information from us about projects and services, donating to us, ordering merchandise, making requests, submitting a form on our website, or simply asking a question. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way, whether it is online or offline. We ask for personal information so that we can fulfill your request and return your message. This information is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies. Progress Virginia does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfil your request or complete your order, but you will still be free to browse other sections of the site owned and administered by Progress Virginia. This means you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.

The way we use information
When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the service or information you have requested). For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to receive information, to make a donation, to purchase merchandise, or to apply for a job. Similarly, we use information you provide about yourself or someone else when placing a merchandise order only to ship the merchandise and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

Information security
Personally identifiable information is stored on our server and is not publicly accessible. Further, personally identifiable information is only accessed by charity: water personnel on a “need to know” basis. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Additionally, Progress Virginia has contracted with third parties that have met industry standards for security to take in necessary data, such as credit card information, to store, transmit and process financial transactions securely. If you are authorizing periodic payments, these third parties will retain the information you have provided when necessary to process such payments.

Choice/Opt-out
If you have registered to receive communications from us and later change your mind, you may contact us to have your name and contact information removed from our distribution lists. You have the following options to do this:

You can send an email to: info@progressva.org

Automatic information
