- INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
Each time you visit the Site, we collect information about you. Some of the information collected is personally identifiable – meaning it can be used to identify who you are, and some of it is not.
- Personally Identifiable Information
We collect personally identifiable information about you in various ways when you visit the Site. During your interactions with the Site, such as when you register with the Site or make a donation or agree to volunteer, we may collect the following types of information:
- your name,
- date of birth,
- postal address,
- email address,
- telephone number,
- credit card information (for online donations),
- your personal connection to type 1 diabetes (T1D), and
- your preferences for receiving additional information such as newsletters.
We use this information to validate Site users, to facilitate participation in various WSDC services as offered through the Site, and to process any donations that you make through the Site. If we need to contact you regarding the Site, our services, or your account, this information may be used to contact you. If you send us an e-mail, we will retain it and any response we make in order to handle any follow-up questions you may have, and to measure how effectively we address your concerns. WSDC retains such personally identifiable information only for as long as is necessary depending on the reason for your submission (which could extend beyond the transaction that you are performing on the Site), and collects no more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary to provide you with the services for which the information is collected. We do not share this personally identifiable information with any third parties except in the very limited circumstances as noted below, in the “Disclosure of Information” section V.
- Non-Personally Identifiable Information
To help us enhance and optimize users’ overall Site experience, we also collect non-personally identifiable information during your Site visits. Non-personally identifiable information is anonymous information about you, such as pages most frequently accessed by you, time spent on a page or area of the Site, the number of visits to the Site by you, types of browser used by you, cookie preferences or search terms entered by you. We can tell the type of computer and web service that you are using, as well as the date, time, and pages that you visit. Examples of non-personally-identifiable and anonymous information may include your Internet access provider, your computer’s Internet protocol (IP) address, your browser and operating system, the date and time of your visit, and data based on your use of the Site. WSDC collects and uses this non-personally-identifiable information in order to, among other things, provide you with or assist in the provision of information through the Site and to maintain the performance of the Site. This data is not associated with any of your personal information. It may be shared with third parties, such as our sponsors or third party service providers, who may use this de-identified information to study and understand Site user preferences and to provide better Services and content.
We make reasonable efforts to protect personally identifiable information received from users of our Site from unauthorized use of disclosure. We do not allow unauthorized access via the Internet to the portion of our server that contains personally identifiable information. We use standard security protocols and mechanisms to exchange the transmission of sensitive data such as credit card information. When you enter sensitive personal information such as your date of birth and credit card information on our Site, we encrypt it using secure socket layer (SSL) technology.
- Additional Safeguards
WSDC maintains reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of any personally identifiable information that you disclose to us. We limit access to your personally identifiable information within WSDC and WSDC’s affiliates to those employees who need to know such personally identifiable information to provide information, services and/or products to you. However, due to the nature of the Internet and computer systems, no transmission of data over the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure, regardless of our best intentions. As such, WSDC cannot ensure or warrant the security of any personally identifiable information you transmit to us.
III. EXTERNAL LINKS OR REFERENCES

WSDC also reserves the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We may release such information when we believe that its release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and ourselves.
- Opting In Through Other Venues
Please be advised that if you provide consent and allow WSDC to disclose your personally identifiable information through one WSDC venue (such as the Site), you will be deemed to have “opted in” through all WSDC venues.
