Our Commitment to your Privacy

Privacy Statement

The UW-Superior Foundation takes seriously your right to privacy in your interaction with our offices and Internet sites.  We recognize that providing personal information to us is an act of trust.  With that in mind, we have established the following Privacy Policy as a guide for our websites, operated by the UW-Superior Foundation in agreement with the University of Wisconsin-Superior.  Please take time to read this policy for your own satisfaction about our commitment to your privacy.

The UW-Superior Foundation and Alumni Association is committed to building positive, high-trust relationships with its contributors, prospective contributors and/or members; providing performance excellence; and operating with the highest ethical standards.

We adhere to the Donor Bill of Rights policy developed by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, the American Association of Fund-Raising Counsel, the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy, and the National Society of Fund Raising Executives.

The UW-Superior Foundation is bound to protect the confidentiality of private, non-public contributor and member information. Respect for our contributors' and members' right to privacy is a basic standard of integrity for all Foundation activities.

The University Advancement Office, an administrative arm of the University of Wisconsin-Superior, oversees the content and activity on Give to UW-Superior website.  When you visit this website, you remain anonymous.  We do not require you to provide any personal information to view our site.  University Advancement, at times, may track traffic on its website and gather non-personally-identifiable information to evaluate how well the pages are reaching and serving the needs of visitors.  This information may be shared within the member/board structure of the UW-Superior Foundation. University Advancement does not sell or distribute any of this general data, nor does the Foundation sell or distribute any contributor or prospective contributor information to individuals or organizations outside the University.

You may encounter occasions when you are asked to provide information through our website.  This is done to better serve you, for example, if you request printed material. Making a gift online requires the submission of personal data.  To ensure privacy, we have enlisted expert technical assistance in designing the information gathering forms and obtained a VeriSign certificate for assured confidentiality of credit card information.  Combined, these two steps ensure that your information goes directly to a Foundation associate as appropriate without external interference.

University Advancement may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the Foundation or University's rights or property or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. University Advancement may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

By using this site, you signify your agreement to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, please do not use this site.

We may occasionally update this policy. All revisions will be posted to this site. A revised Privacy Policy will apply only to data collected subsequent to its effective date.
