Our Privacy Policy

UWRI recognizes the importance of protecting information we may collect from visitors to our websites and electronic platforms, including all sites and pages connected to www.uwri.org,  www.myfund.org, and www.myfundri.org.  Our policy is to use the information we acquire from visitors to our sites for internal purposes only, and we maintain appropriate security measures to keep this information private.  Your browser, however, does automatically tell us the type of computer and operating system you are using.

Users can visit our sites without revealing any information about themselves.  If one chooses to give us personal information via the Internet for the purposes of correspondence, processing a gift or order, or providing a subscription to a publication, then it is our intent to let you know how we will use such information.

If users tell us that they do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact, we will respect those wishes.  If users wish to review or correct the personal information we have collected, please contact us here: info@uwri.org.  We do keep track of the domains from which people visit us.  We analyze this data for trends, insights and statistics, and then we discard it.

Our websites are not intended for children under 13 years of age.  No one under age 13 may provide any information to our websites.  We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13.  If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on these websites, register with the websites, use any of the interactive or public comment features of the websites, or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, or any screen name or user name you may use.  If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information.  If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at info@uwri.org.

UWRI takes precautions to keep the user information disclosed to us secure, and such information will not be disclosed to third parties for commercial purposes.  To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. UWRI uses SSL encryption for all financial transactions to protect personal information.

Use of Cookies

Certain sections of our website use “cookies” to store user information.  A cookie is a small string of text that a website can send to your browser.  A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your email address.  Currently, websites use cookies to enhance the user’s visit; in general, cookies can securely store a user’s ID and password, personalize home pages, identify which parts of a site have been visited, or keep track of selections in a “shopping cart.”  Cookies help us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how long they spend there.  We use cookies to study traffic patterns on our sites so we can make the user experience even better.

Cookies were originally designed to help a website distinguish a user’s browser as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site.  If you are just browsing UWRI’s website, a cookie identifies only your browser.  If you become a registered user on a UWRI website (with a user ID and password), we may use cookies so that we can provide personalized information that we believe will be of value to you based on preferences you have indicated while visiting the site.  It is possible to set your browser to inform you when a cookie is being placed – this way, you have the opportunity to decide whether to accept the cookie.  If you are just browsing our site and are not a registered user, you do not have to accept a cookie and you can still continue browsing the site.  However, if you are visiting a site where you will be accessing a confidential account, you must accept that site’s cookies because they are essential for site administration and security.

Questions and Agreement

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, contact UWRI.  If you do not agree with these terms of this Privacy Policy, you may not use the site.  It is our policy to post any changes we make to our Privacy Policy on this page.  The date the Privacy Policy was last revised is identified at the top of the page.  You are responsible for periodically visiting this Privacy Policy to check for any changes.
