Donor Privacy Policy

Donor Information Collection and Use

Protecting the confidentiality of personally identifiable information of our donors has been, and will continue to be, a top priority of United Way of the Tanana Valley. United Way of the Tanana Valley only gathers personally identifiable data (examples: addresses, zip codes, email addresses) when voluntarily submitted by you or your company. Except as stated herein, United Way of the Tanana Valley will not disclose, sell, share, trade, or rent any personally identifiable data collected online or through paper pledge forms. This information is used by your company’s payroll administrator (for payroll deductions), United Way of the Tanana Valley, or a secure online merchant bank (for credit cards & e-checks) for the purpose of executing the transaction. United Way of the Tanana Valley may use your information for other internal purposes, including communications to make you aware of how your donations are being spent, events, newsletters, and other general information relating to United Way of the Tanana Valley.

United Way of the Tanana Valley may also share personally identifiable data with its affiliate agencies. We will also release personally identifiable data about you, if necessary, in order to comply with valid legal processes such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order. United Way of the Tanana Valley reserves the right to use all information, including personally identifiable data, at its disposal and to share this information with internet service providers and other third parties as necessary to investigate any incident of misuse or abuse of its site, server, or information systems.

Other Web sites that you may link to from our site, including our partners’ Web sites, maintain their own privacy policies. United Way of the Tanana Valley is not responsible for the privacy practices of other Web sites or affiliate agencies. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of Web sites or affiliate agencies before providing them with any of your personally identifiable information.


You are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having your personally identifiable data used for communication purposes. You can select to opt-out on any of our email, registration, or donation forms. You may also email [email protected].

Credit Card and Bank Account Information

United Way of the Tanana Valley appreciates the great trust you place in us when you share with us your credit card or bank account information. Protecting this information is a responsibility we do not take lightly. As such, United Way of the Tanana Valley regularly reviews its procedures and systems for compliance with federal regulations and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).

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, SSL, to communicate with your browser software. This method is the industry standard in security protocol, helping to keep your personally identifiable data as secure as possible.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user-information off-line. Only United Way of the Tanana Valley authorized employees are granted access to personally identifiable data. All servers on which personally identifiable data is stored are kept in a secure environment.

Changes to Privacy Policy

If we change our privacy statement, we will post those changes prominently so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone.
