Privacy Policy

We respect your right to privacy.

We will not give your name or personal information to third parties.

WePay processes all of the transactions on WeRaise. No one sees your credit card information besides WePay, not even us.

Email / Mail

We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us!

WeRaise will send you email regarding your personal transactions, including your tax deductible receipts. We will keep these emails to a minimum. Donors who are new to WeRaise will also receive a one follow-up mailing from Wheat Ridge Ministries.

You may receive certain email notifications (project updates, forwarded messages, etc.), for which you may opt-out. 

We may send you service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so.

Project creators receive the email addresses of their donors and are expected to to follow email regulations as defined by the CAN SPAM Act of 2003.

Technology / Security

WeRaise uses cookies to help (anonymously) recognize you as a repeat visitor and to track traffic patterns on our site. We use this information to make WeRaise more user-friendly.

WeRaise may obtain IP addresses from users. We will use this information to monitor and prevent fraud, diagnose problems, and (anonymously) estimate demographic information.

We use a variety of security measures, including encryption and authentication tools, to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information. Your personal information is stored behind firewalls and is only accessible by a limited number of people who are required to keep the information confidential.

WeRaise uses a secure server to receive donation pledges. To the extent you select the secure server method and your browser supports such functionality, all credit card information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Regardless of these efforts by us, no data transmission over the public Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Voluntary Disclosure

Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose in public areas, such as your user profile, becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by other users. You should exercise caution before disclosing your personal information via these public venues.

Project Leaders

By entering into our User Agreement, WeRaise's Project Leaders agree to not abuse other users' personal information. Abuse is defined as using personal information for any purpose other than those explicitly specified in the Project Leader's Project, or is not related to fulfilling delivery of a product or service explicitly specified in the Project Leader's Project.

WeRaise's Project Leaders never receive users' credit card information.

Wrap-up

WeRaise reserves the right to update this privacy policy at anytime. Updates to our privacy policy will be sent to the email address that you have provided us or posted prominently on the website.

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as U.S. Copyright Law).

To modify or delete any or all of the personal information you have provided to us, please log in and update your profile. If you have made a donation through WeRaise and would like your information removed from our donor database, send an email to weraise@wheatridge.org.

People under 18 are not permitted to use WeRaise on their own, and so this privacy policy makes no provision for their use of the site.
