Collecting and Using Personal Information

Thank you for your interest in the Feminist Women's Health Center. When you visit our site and when you communicate with us via our site, we will not collect personal information about you unless you provide us that information voluntarily when you become a member of our advocacy network, send an email question, make a donation, etc. If you do submit information to us, we may use that information for the purposes for which it was submitted. We may also use the information you supply to us in other ways, including contacting you about other FWHC services, programs, news, fundraising or as otherwise disclosed to you when you submitted the information to us.

For example, if you choose to donate online to FWHC, we will add your information to FWHC’s donor database, and you will be contacted about other FWHC services, programs, news, and/or fundraising. Another example is when you join our advocacy network, you will receive information about actions, legislative issues, and other relevant advocacy issues. You will also be added to FWHC’s donor database and will receive fundraising communications and/or news from FWHC. We will need your email address in order to add you to our advocacy network and we will also need your postal home address to ensure that we can properly match you to your correct legislative districts and that any targeted messages can be delivered to you.

If you choose to donate online to FWHC, you will have to provide your credit card billing information. Please see below under Security for how this information is protected.
