We will not sell, trade or share personal information with anyone else nor send mailings on behalf of other organizations. WOLA collects information from our users through forms the user may fill out on various pages of the website. We will only share personal information if an individual has given specific permission to do so.

Mailing Lists & Donations

In using this website, a user may input information to subscribe to our mailing lists or to make a secure donation to WOLA. During these processes a user is required to give their contact information (such as email address).

In subscribing to our mailing list, the user is only required to provide their name, email address, and country of residence. Additional information is optional, but does help tailor mailings to the users’ interests. This information is used only to provide them with relevant mailings from WOLA. Every mailing includes an option to unsubscribe.

To make a donation, the user is required to provide their name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and credit card information. WOLA retains contact information to provide donation receipts, send appropriate donor mailings, and track giving over time. Users may ask not to receive these mailings by sending a written request to WOLA at our office or by emailing [email protected].

Maintenance of Accurate Information

In order to attain the most complete and accurate records, we consistently maintain customer information. If you have reason to believe that your records are incorrect, please contact WOLA at 202-797-2171 or [email protected]. We respond to requests to correct inaccurate information in a timely manner.

Data Security

WOLA works with NPC Secure to process credit card payments.  NPC Secure takes privacy and data security very seriously and will not sell, share, or rent information they collect on our behalf. Users may access their privacy policy at http://www.npc.net/privacy-policy.aspx.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
