Privacy Policy

Urban Youth Workers Institute (UYWI) demonstrates a firm commitment to your privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this site.

This privacy policy covers www.uywi.org, my.uywi.org, and any events we post on www.eventbrite.com.   These sites may also contain links to other sites we do not control, and UYWI is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other web sites.

THE BASICS

Your Personal Information:

We may collect personal contact information when you register for our events, signup for information online, or make a purchase in our online store.  We use this information to communicate with you about urban youth ministry resources and training events.  We never rent or sell our list.  We may occasionally communicate about events or resources from partner ministries, but those emails will always come from us, and your information will never be distributed.

When you attend an event co-hosted by UYWI and a local host, both parties will have access to the attendance list.  UYWI is not responsible for the privacy policies of other organizations.

Opting Out

You may opt-out of receiving communication from us at any time.  Every email we send has an opt-out link at the bottom.  You may opt-out of paper-mailings by calling our office or sending us your request by mail, fax or email. See details below.

THE TECHIE DETAILS

As with most other Internet sites, our web servers utilize “cookies” to track a user’s activity within our site as well as record the IP address of each visitor to this site. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer. A cookie contains a unique identifying feature that allows our computer to recognize you when you return to the UYWI site. The recorded IP address tells us which domain you visited from (for instance, google.com), but not your email address or other private and personal information. We use the information we record to help administer this website more effectively, and to gather broad demographic information about what countries and domains our visitors hail from and their behavior on our site.

In some cases our site uses securely encrypted contribution response forms for visitors who choose to use these forms to provide information, request information, and make purchases or donations. We collect your willingly submitted contact information (such as your email address), and financial information (such as a credit card type, number, and expiration date). Contact information from these response forms is used to process donations, provide receipts and other information about UYWI. The visitor’s contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. Users may readily opt-out of receiving future communications; see the “How to Modify Your Information or Opt Out” section below.

Those who choose to register through various “guestbook”-type features on our site may choose to give us certain contact information (such as their email address). These features may also request optional demographic information (such as zip code, age, or income level). Unless you “opt out,” we may use this contact information to send you additional information about UYWI and its programs. Your voluntarily provided contact information may also be used to contact you when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions.

HOW TO MODIFY YOUR INFORMATION OR OPT-OUT

We give users the following options for removing their information from our database to not receive future communications or to no longer receive our service; or for changing or modifying information previously provided.

When contacting us to make changes, include information that will help us identify you on our lists (name, mailing address, or email address where you received communications, and what sort of mailings or emails you received.).  We will honor your request promptly. Upon your request, emails will cease within 1 week.   It may take up to 2-3 weeks to process a paper-mail opt-out because there may already be mailings in the printing/mailing cycle.
