All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We may store personal information in locations outside our direct control (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).

We use Security Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to encrypt sensitive personal information (such as your payment information and geolocation) before it travels over the internet. Credit card numbers are never stored on our database or servers.

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100 percent secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Website, please contact us.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In the event of a data breach, we will promptly notify any Users whose personal information is compromised. Notwithstanding, YWCA St. Paul does not accept liability for any unintentional disclosure or a disclosure that occurs due to a security breach of our systems or facilities.
