Web and Privacy Policy

The privacy of our customers is important to Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies, Inc. (hereafter also referred to as ‘FPWA’). We understand that visitors to https://federalfundstracker.org need to be in control of their personal information. Therefore, the following is the FPWA Internet Privacy Policy.

Collection of Information. Our Web site does not automatically collect any individually identifiable information, such as email addresses, from visitors and you do not have to give us personal information to visit our site. If you choose not to provide personal information, you can still visit https://federalfundstracker.org pages.

We may collect personally identifiable information only if specifically and knowingly provided by you. There are sections of this Site where you may be able to register and create a user profile for accessing profile-secured sections of the Site, subscribe to an email newsletter, sign up for broadcast email, take part in message boards or chat, take action in an online email and/or social media campaign, participate in polls or surveys, or make a donation. In so doing, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information, including but not limited to, your name, address, email address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information, or information about your interests and activities.

FPWA makes every effort to ensure that the information presented is accurate. However, if inaccuracies occur or if your personal information changes, FPWA will make every effort to correct them in a timely manner. To report any inaccuracies or to update your user profile, please email us at info@fpwa.org or write to Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies, Inc., 40 Broad Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10004.

Use of Information. Personally identifying information collected by the Site will be used only in connection with https://federalfundstracker.org and https://www.fpwa.org, or for such purposes as are described at the point of collection. FPWA will protect the personal information that you provide through https://federalfundstracker.org and https://www.fpwa.org. FPWA will not disclose, give, sell, or transfer any such personal information to third parties, unless necessary to complete the transaction you initiated and then only to the extent necessary. If we share demographic information with third parties, we will give them aggregate information only.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, we specifically reserve the right to disclose personally identifiable information to law enforcement personnel in response to a subpoena, warrant, court order, or in other appropriate situations. FPWA may use the information you give us to recommend and provide services to you, at your request. We may use it to communicate with you through periodic messages regarding services, events, and other information and notices we believe you may find interesting or useful. We may use it for confirmation of donations, registrations, or other actions you take on our site, and for related customer service needs.

We recognize and respect your right not to be included in such communications. You may opt out of receiving such mailings whenever personal information is solicited and we will honor your choice. Please email us at info@fpwa.org or call us at 212-777-4800, if you do not wish to receive any information. Our website, www.fpwa.org, may perform analyses of user behavior in order to measure customer interest in the various areas of our sites. We may use the information that is not personally identifiable to analyze the design and functioning of our site in order to make site improvements. We may use such information in the aggregate to analyze site usage. Our websites, https://federalfundstracker.org and https://www.fpwa.org, also use listserves to send out information and change notices to subscribed users of our sites.

Refund Policy. All contributions are final.

Security. While FPWA will make every attempt to protect the personal information that you share with us, electronic mail is not secure against interception. If your communication is very sensitive, you may want to send it by postal mail instead. Our website, https://federalfundstracker.org and https://www.fpwa.org, use appropriate procedures to ensure the security of personal information and to protect it from unauthorized access. In particular, when we ask you to enter credit card information, we use industry standard security protection, including encryption, SSL transmission connection, and a secure server for information storage. Once your credit card has been processed, your credit card information is not stored on our servers.

Interactive Portions of the Site. Please be aware that when you provide information on bulletin boards, chat rooms, and similar interactive portions of this site, you are making such information available to others. Please use prudence and good sense when participating in such interactive portions of the Site. To the extent others post their information in such interactive settings, you agree to use such information only to the extent and for the purpose permitted by such person.

Links to Third Party Sites. This website contains some hyperlinks to web sites operated by parties other than FPWA. These hyperlinks are provided for your convenience only. FPWA does not control or endorse such third-party websites and is not responsible for their contents, including their privacy policies. Please be aware that third party websites may collect personal information from you and FPWA has no control over such information collected or the use of such information collected.

Cookie Technology. This website may also collect information about you in part through the use of”cookies” — that is, small text files placed on your computer’s hard drive. Cookie technology shares basic information about your computer and Internet connections. Collecting this basic information helps FPWA streamline your experience on our Website — for example, helping us diagnose problems with our server, administering our Web site, or by “automatically” filling out forms for you. FPWA may occasionally update this policy. Notice of revisions will be posted here. We want to be very clear: We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information.

This Privacy Policy should be read in conjunction with the Terms and Conditions for use of our Site here listed below.
