Privacy Policy

The United Performing Arts Fund (UPAF) takes every precaution to protect your information.
UPAF receives personal and financial information from its donors and friends through a variety of direct communications between UPAF and the individual. This communication may be through written, phone, tele-fund or website communication. Your privacy is important to the United Performing Arts Fund and our Board of Directors has adopted this Privacy Policy for your protection and information.

How We Use Your Information
Personal and Financial Information: If you make a pledge or donation to UPAF, we request personal information (such as name, address, phone and email) and financial information if you are making a payment (such as a credit card number or donation amount). This information is for UPAF purposes only to create a donor record within our donor database and/or to fulfill your inquiry, request or order. UPAF does not store credit card information and will never sell, trade, or share personal or financial information it has received from the donor with any group or organization. UPAF may share aggregate demographic information with our sponsors. This aggregated information does not include any personal or financial information which can identify you as an individual.

Finally, UPAF may recognize all donors in annual publications. Donors will be given the option to list their name anonymously if they so choose.

Note Regarding Children
UPAF does not knowingly collect any personal information from children. Children who wish to register to ride in UPAF Ride for the Arts, sponsored by Miller Lite must have a parent fill out the registration form, including the credit card authorization information.

This site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that UPAF is not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any website you access through a link on our site.

UPAF has defined appropriate procedures to secure your personal and financial information, including your name, address(es), email address, payment records and credit accounts both on-line and off-line.

Online: UPAF uses encryption technology to protect sensitive information such as credit card numbers. We use a credit card processing company to bill users for donations and Ride registrations. All credit card processors we use are PCI-DSS compliant. This processing company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. If you decide to make a credit card payment to us, then you will actually be using this processing company’s website and should review their privacy policy.

Off-line: Once the transaction(s) has been processed, UPAF does not store any credit card information on your record within our donor database. UPAF will store your personal information for acknowledgement and matching purposes. Our database is password-protected and only employees of UPAF are permitted to access the database. Employees are frequently reminded of the confidentiality of the information they handle and what they must do to maintain that confidentiality.

In the event UPAF donor or volunteer data is compromised through a security breach, UPAF will take reasonable action to determine the source of the breach and, where appropriate, notify the individuals affected by the breach.

By use of this website, you hereby agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. UPAF reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. Changes to the Privacy Policy will be posted on the website and shall be effective immediately upon posting. If you do not agree with any of these terms, please do not use this website or submit any personal or financial information.
