On some BW webpages you can provide contact information. BW appreciates and takes very seriously the trust that you place in us by providing this most personal information to us. By voluntarily submitting personal information to BW, whether online or offline, you agree that BW may use that information to maintain contact with you, solicit contributions from you and provide you with information about BW and its programs and initiatives.
Here are the types of personal information that we collect:
How Information is Used
BW uses your information to understand your needs and provide you with better service. Specifically, we use your information to communicate with you, update you on our work, help you complete a transaction, and overall personalize your BW experience. Credit card numbers are used only for donation or payment processing and are not retained for other purposes. We use the comments you offer to provide you with information requested, and we take seriously each recommendation as to how we might improve communication.
No Sharing of Personal Information
BW is committed to ensuring the security of your personal information, whether you are a donor or a site visitor, or a constituent in any other way. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the proper use of information, we have established and implemented appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online and offline. We use Internet encryption software in compliance with PCI best practices when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. Once we receive your credit card information, it is accessible only to a small number of trusted BW staff who have been specially trained in processing this information.
BW does not collect personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide personal information to BW (e.g., by making a donation or signing up to receive e-mail from BW). BW does, however, monitor and collect certain navigational information from visitors to our Web site, utilizing traditional and commonly practiced methods in order to provide the best online experience. This information helps us understand:

In addition to maintaining privacy and security controls over the personal information you share with us, BW strives to ensure that the personal information we have collected is current and accurate.
