We may use cookies to enable us to count the number of visitors to the site, identify the pages viewed most often, and determine ways to improve the site and make your experience a positive one. We may use IP addresses (log files) to analyze trends, administer the website, track the movement of users, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

How do we use information and do we share information?

We do not sell your Personal Information to others. We generally use your Personal Information to respond to a request for information, to fulfill certain purposes (such as sending you a newsletter, processing your job application, or processing your request to serve as a volunteer), and to enhance your experience with the website.

On occasion, we will provide your Personal Information to our trusted third-party contractors and business partners who assist us with running the website and/or performing certain functions on our behalf. If you make a donation to Winrock, that transaction is handled through either Global Giving or Network for Good. These organizations process your donation, including collecting your payment information. We do not have access to your payment information (such as credit card information) when you make a donation. The privacy policy of Global Giving or Network for Good, as applicable, will apply to the transaction data that is collected relating to your donation. We will have access to your contact information when you make a donation, which we may use to follow up with you about your donation. If you apply for a job with Winrock, your job application (which contains Personal Information) will be processed by a third party contractor. We, and our contractor, will use your job application and the Personal Information contained therein only as reasonably necessary to process your request for a job. If you apply to volunteer with Winrock, we will use your Personal Information as reasonably necessary to match individual skills and interests with volunteer assignment opportunities. We will collect your contact information, expertise, and demographic and logistical information to ensure the effective and efficient mobilization of volunteers to their posted assignments. Winrock also maintains a Professional Register, which is a database of consultants used to provide short- and long-term technical expertise to programs and projects. If you request to be a part of the Professional Register, you are consenting to have your Personal Information be included in the database of consultants. If you sign up to receive a newsletter, your Personal Information is provided to a third party that manages our subscription lists.

We do not share your Personal Information with any telemarketer or other third party for advertising or marketing purposes. It is our policy not to sell, trade or rent your Personal Information. Winrock reserves the right to change this policy at any time. You will be notified and given the opportunity to remove your name from our database if we change this policy. We may also share Personal Information if we are required to do so pursuant to applicable law or to investigate wrongful activity.

Your phone number will not be used to solicit funds. It only will be used if we need to verify information, and occasionally, to thank you for your contribution or participation in our work.

Information posted by you to public forums (message boards) may be used for Winrock communication efforts. Remember that any information disclosed in these areas becomes public information, which may be used by other parties without your consent. Always exercise caution when disclosing Personal Information in public forums. We cannot be responsible for the privacy of any Personal Information posted by you in public forums. Do not use your full name as your user name when you post information in public forums on the website if you do not want your full name to be publicly available.
