Privacy Policy


YWCA of Greater Cincinnati Privacy Policy

The YWCA of Greater Cincinnati has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices.

This site contains links to other sites. The YWCA of Greater Cincinnati is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

General Information Collection and Use

The YWCA of Greater Cincinnati is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not share this information with others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. We collect information from our users at several different points on our website.

The Information We Collect:

The YWCA collects personal information on its website to process unsolicited donations and visitors to the site may register for activities or request information. The types of information collected at these pages include:

Email Address
Phone Number
Credit/Debit Card Information

We collect visitor's contact information and financial information as needed. Contact information is used to send information about our organization. The contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary. This information is not shared or resold in any circumstance except under requirement by law or judgment.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses may be added to our database for use on a distribution list to announce an event, but they are not shared with outside parties.

We never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit unrelated use.

Users may opt-out of receiving mailings and have your information removed from our database to not receive future communications. Please send an e-mail to or a letter to YWCA Webmaster at 898 Walnut Street, Cincinnati, OH, 45202 or call 513-241-7090 and ask for the Webmaster.


This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. This includes a firewall and 24 monitoring of site activities by our hosting service provider as well as 128-bit SSL encryption (where allowable by law) on all transaction oriented operations between you and the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati via our transaction service provider.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.

Children’s Privacy

Because we care about the safety and privacy of children online, we comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulation establish United States federal law that protects the privacy of children using the Internet. We do not knowingly collect contact or personal information from children under 13. Our sites are not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13, and we have designed our sites to block our knowing acceptance of information from children under 13 whenever age related information is requested.

Contacting the Web Site

If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this Web site, you can contact the YWCA Webmaster via e-mail at or telephone at 513-241-7090.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes here so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
