How We Use the Information We Collect

If you provide us with personal information, we will normally respond to your inquiry, request, or order. We may also contact you to provide information about WLP activities, programs, opportunities, and special events. 

We will never sell, barter, rent, or give your name or information to anyone outside WLP unless you affirmatively authorize us to do so.

We use the information we learn from you to help us continually improve our practices, processes, content, and general user experience on the WLP website. We use your personal and non-personal information in the following ways:

  • Responding to your inquiries
  • Sending you periodic newsletters, mailings, and information about programs, initiatives, activities, and events by e-mail or another medium
  • Event or program registration
  • Optimizing or improving our programs and operations

Online Donations and Donor Privacy

In order to make a donation on the WLP website, the user must provide required information including contact information and financial information (credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to provide donation tax receipts and courtesy acknowledgements. If we have trouble processing a donation, the contact information may be used to get in touch with the donor. 

WLP does not store any credit card information on its servers and uses a payment gateway to process the payment information. To ensure the security of your personal information when making an online donation, you will be taken to a secure form on a secure server hosted by our payment processor, First Data. 

WLP maintains a commitment to donor privacy. We will not sell, rent, share or trade our donors' names or personal information with any other entity, nor send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations. This policy applies to all information received by WLP, both online and offline, as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications.



WLP is committed to ensuring that its IT systems, applications and information technology infrastructure are secured. Any personally identifiable information is stored on secure data servers. We use industry-standard methods to protect the confidentiality and integrity of your personal information. WLP requires credit card processing be secured based on compliance to Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards. When you use your credit card for an online donation to WLP, that transaction is always encrypted when traveling over the Internet.

Unauthorized access and/or unauthorized attempts to change information on the WLP website are strictly prohibited and punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act.

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with an appropriate law enforcement investigation, current judicial proceeding, a court order, or legal process served on our website.



Within the WLP website there are links to non-WLP websites. These sites operate independently of WLP and have their own privacy policies. When you link to third party websites, you leave the WLP website and no longer will be subject to our privacy and security policies. WLP is not responsible for the privacy or security practices or the content of non-WLP websites, and such links are not intended to be an endorsement of the non-WLP website or its content.
