SWACSV believes in safeguarding personal information and ensuring that privacy is respected and protected for donors, local SWASCV, all youth, volunteers, vendors, and members of the foundation. We will use personal information to keep donors, friends, vendors, volunteers, and members informed of our activities, including our programs, special events, and funding needs. We respect all requests to remain anonymous. We will always provide an “opt-out” procedure for donors and others who receive such materials to request that their names be deleted from similar mailings, phone calls, faxes, or electronic communications in the future. Donors, friends, volunteers may contact SWACSV at any time, and we will gladly accommodate your preferences. Individuals may choose to opt-out of electronic communication including emails and faxes. Individuals may also request that their record be flagged as “Do Not Call.” SWACSV will honor all or a combination of these “opt-out” preferences.
