This privacy policy (the “Policy”) is in place to protect your personal information and explains WSP’s practices regarding your personal information collected through the use of the Website. By accessing the Website you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions of the Policy, and agree that WSP may collect, use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this Policy and as permitted or required by law. If you do not agree with the terms of this Policy do not visit the Website and do not provide us with any personal information.

What type of information does WSP collect?

WSP does collect certain personally identifiable information. However, WSP only collects Personal Information (as defined herein) to the extent necessary to provide you with the information, for donation purposes as discussed below, and other services of the Website. For > purposes of this Policy, “Personal Information” means any information, recorded in any form, about an identified individual, or an individual whose identity may be inferred from the information. In order to contact WSP or register with WSP to become a potentially Member or Partner of the organization you will be required to sign up and submit certain Personal Information. By providing such Personal Information, you will be able to contact WSP and register to become a Member or Partner, and also make donations to WSP.

For donation purposes only, WSP does collect Personal Information, which will include a person’s credit card number, the billing address, mailing address, and name of the person who agrees to make a donation. WSP will also collect the bank account number from those individuals who prefer to make a donation via their bank account. WSP uses this credit card information solely for the payment processing of your donation and will not retain this information for marketing or any other purpose. Please be aware that WSP will not ask for your credit card information, except as set forth in this Policy.

WSP also collects certain non-personally identifiable information. When you visit and access the Website, WSP collects the following non-personally identifiable information from you:
