Privacy Policy

Information Collected


Users have access to our site without providing any personally identifying information. Brightway Center only collects personally identifying information when you voluntarily submit it, such as when you e-mail comments to the site, sign up for email updates or make an online donation.
Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that includes name, email address, format preference (HTML or text), address, and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors such as credit card or social security numbers.

Donations


When you make a gift to Brightway Center, we will retain any information that you share with us, including your name, address, and/or email address. We will use this information to send you a written acknowledgement of your gift and to keep you informed about our progress, events, and fundraising efforts. Brightway Center respects the wishes of our donors regarding confidentiality. Brightway Center will never share your name, email address or other information with other organizations. The names of individuals, foundations and businesses may be listed in our Annual Report section of Who We Are with their consent.

Security


All information provided to Brightway Center online is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by certain employees of Brightway Center. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.

Links to Other Sites


Brightway Center is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any sites to which it provides links.



Social Media Policy


Brightway Center is not responsible for the content of its Facebook or Twitter followers or of those that we are following. Brightway Center makes a reasonable best effort to follow feeds of individuals or entities that consistently provide information about nonprofit governance, management, policy, technology or other relevant topics. Due to the dynamic nature of social media tools like Facebook and Twitter, Brightway Center cannot guarantee the appropriateness of the content of its followers or of those that we follow.

Changes to Privacy Policy


Brightway Center reserves the right to modify our policy as needed. A revised policy will apply only to information collected after the date that the new policy is posted.
