Personal Information

  • “Personal Information” is information that identifies you personally, such as your name, address, telephone number, and email address. We collect and store the personally identifiable information that you have provided us.  Here are some examples of ways in which we may collect your information.
  • When you request information via one of the email addresses identified on our website or otherwise contact us in person, by phone or email, with a question.  We may then collect your name, address and email in order to respond to that inquiry.
  • We may collect your name, email address and other contact information if you register for an event.
  • We may collect your name, email address, telephone number and payment information when you make a contribution, either on our website, over the phone or by mailing in a check.

The above list provides a sample of personal information that may be collected by YWCA of Central Virginia.  From time to time, we may collect personal information from you in ways not described above.
