WFK will not sell or provide your email address to other businesses or organizations for their general use. WFK collects information such as the visitor’s domain name, site traffic patterns, and server usage statistics. This information is used to improve the performance and content of our web pages. We do not collect your e-mail address unless you choose to communicate with us via e-mail or you volunteer your e-mail address on a form on this site.

 

Information We Collect & How we Use It

WFK collect personal, or individually identifiable, information you provide to us, typically by completing online forms – examples would include an e-mail address, physical street address, phone number, etc. With your permission, we may use this information to contact you about WFK events or content.

Secondly, we collect standard web server/visitor traffic information, commonly referred to as aggregate information, regarding overall Web site traffic patterns. Normally, Web servers collect this type of basic information automatically as part of their Web log processes. We do not report on individual user sessions.

 

Identifiable Information

There are instances when WFK requests individually identifiable information from its online users. The following are examples of situations where we might request such information from you: contacting us to request information, contacting us to receive a hairpiece, contacting us for our Sponsor A Child Program, contacting us to sign up your salon or hair replacement center for our Affiliate or Ambassador Program, contacting us for hair donation information, making a donation, and inquiring about volunteer opportunities.

In the case of memorial or honorary contributions, a personalized card is sent to a designated recipient, usually the family member of the deceased or the surviving victim. Therefore, we will request the name, address, city, state, zip code and telephone number for your designated card recipient. This information is used for the purpose of sending the card and we may use this information to contact them about WFK events or content.

When you make a donation, you may be asked if you would like to receive further contact from us via our Web site. If you indicate yes, you will be placed on our e-mail distribution list. If you later want to be removed from that list, you can remove yourself by clicking unsubscribe.

We maintain records of all donations made to WFK. Personal information is private and confidential. Additionally, all information is stored in a secure location accessible only by authorized staff. WFK may contact you with further communications via the Web, US Postal Mail, or telephone. If you wish to restrict the use of your contact information, you can choose to opt out by clicking unsubscribe on any email.
