Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

As an organization working with technology to promote social change, Citizen Action of Wisconsin (CAW) takes privacy issues very seriously. This privacy policy identifies the ways we collect, use and protect personally identifiable information as well as your options for accessing and correcting that information.

What personally identifiable information does CAW collect?

In various places on our website, we gather email addresses and other basic contact information for the purpose of allowing people to join CAW, take actions, RSVP for events and interface with social media sites, etc. We also gather contact information from individuals who choose to donate to us via our website in order to process their donations, acknowledge them in a timely manner, and keep donors informed about the impact of our work.

CAW partners with third-party service providers to host our website and action alert list. Third-party service providers are not permitted to use or share any personally identifiable information that we provide to them. CAW does not share any of the personally identifiable information we collect with other outside parties, unless we have received your specific permission to do so.

Like most website operators, our web servers create log files. Server log files do not contain personally identifiable information. These track data on Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to enable us to administer the site, analyze trends, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Server log files do not contain personally identifiable information.

How does CAW protect personally identifiable information?

CAW takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and off-line.

When our website asks users to enter sensitive information, that information is encrypted with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. All of our databases are password-protected to ensure that unauthorized users cannot access sensitive data.

What choices do I have in interacting with CAW

You can opt out of receiving communications from us. You may request access to personally identifiable information we collect about you through our electronic communications and you may request corrections to that information. For any of these requests or for more information about our privacy policies and practices, please contact us at or call 414-476-4501.
