What Personally Identifiable Information Is Collected and How It Is Used
Users of WCSC’s website who sign up to receive our newsletter or use our contact form provide us with information (such as name and e-mail address) voluntarily. We may use this information for limited, specific purposes, such as responding to your questions or contacting you with sponsorship opportunities or event information. We will not sell or share your personal information. WCSC is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you provide voluntarily.
WCSC uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer wcstx.org, and for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic.
We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access and identify repeat visitors to wcstx.org. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users, to enhance the experience on wcstx.org and save time. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may always “opt out,” either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number provided on our website:
- See what data we have about you, if any
- Change/correct any data we have about you
- Have us delete any data we have about you
- Express any concern you have about our use of your data
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. We will store your information securely.
Our website is equipped with an additional layer of security, an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate. Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon () in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page (for example, https://wcstx.org).
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific task (for example, customer service or thanking donors) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers that we use for storing personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
