By accessing or using the Connection for Abused Women and their Children website, you agree to the terms of this Online Privacy Policy, as outlined below. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not access or use this website.

Collection of Personal Information

When you engage in certain activities on the website, you may be asked to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, you may be required to provide personal information, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and other personal identifying information. Connections for Abused Women and their Children does not collect information on visitors to its website without their knowledge and consent.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

When you submit personal information, you understand and agree that Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC) may transfer to, store, and process your information in any of the offices maintained by CAWC. CAWC is the sole owner of the information gathered on its website.

Connections for Abused Women and their Children collects this information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. CAWC also uses information that you provide as part of our effort to keep you informed about program information, training opportunities, events, donation and volunteer opportunities, special programs, and other news and services. Unless you ask us not to, representatives of CAWC may contact you via email in the future as part of its effort to keep you informed. CAWC will never sell or share your information with other organizations.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out of any future contacts from CAWC at any time, and you can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:

  • See what data we have about you, if any.
  • Change/correct any data we have about you.
  • Have us delete any data we have about you.
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data.


We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via CAWC’s website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for the “https” at the beginning of the address of the webpage.

While CAWC uses encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, donation processing) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
