Our information collection practices are described below. While we encourage children to visit our site and learn more about our programs, we recommend, however, that parents approve and closely supervise the activity of their children at this and all other online sites. We urge children to check with their parents before entering information on any website and we urge parents to discuss with their children restrictions regarding the online release of personal information to anyone they don't know.


The Information WCCYC Collects

We respect your privacy as our online guest, and we will not collect any identifying or personal information about you while you are here except as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

WCCYC collects information in several ways from different parts of this site. WCCYC may collect personal information from you when you register with this site. WCCYC also may ask you for personal information at other times, such as when you ask a question or report a problem with this site. If you contact WCCYC, WCCYCmay keep a record of that session or correspondence, including a record of your e-mail address. WCCYC may also occasionally ask users to complete surveys for research purposes. There also may be services on this site that require you to fill out an online form or send WCCYC an e-mail message in order to utilize these services. WCCYC collects any information that you provide in such circumstances, including any personal information.

We may ask you for identifying and personal information to:

  • Invite you to receive periodic e-mail updates about our progress: When you accept, or "opt in," we ask you to give us your e-mail address and respond to some questions that help us tailor our information to your interests. You can "opt out" of receiving these periodic updates at any time.

  • Processing any online donations you make to West Cook County Youth Club: When you donate to honor someone else, we do not use the information you give us about that person for any other purpose.

  • Accepting your online "registration" at our site: When you agree to give us identifying and personal information, you are giving that information only to  West Cook County Youth Club and the parties we have involved in operating this site. You are giving it solely to enable the services this site provides.

  • Processing registration information for online sweepstakes or contests on the West Cook County Youth Club website: When you agree to give us identifying and personal information, you are giving that information only to West Cook County Youth Club and the parties we have involved in operating this site.

This list is not exhaustive, but meant to give the website user an idea of the data collecting on this website.

WCCYC also may collect IP addresses, domain names, and similar items regarding users of this site to measure the number of visits, pages visited, average time spent on this site, and similar items.

"Cookies" may be used in connection with this site. A cookie is a small amount of identifier data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. By using cookies, information is potentially collected without your express knowledge. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies but permit you to change the setting to refuse cookies or to be alerted when cookies are being sent. While refusal to accept cookies will not prevent the use of some portions of this site, other portions of this site may not function properly without cookies.

How WCCYC Uses the Information It Collects

WCCYC uses the information it collects through this site to improve its marketing and promotional efforts, to improve its content, and to customize this site's services, content, and layout. WCCYC may provide the information it collects through this site to WCCYC's business partners, and to third parties who provide services on WCCYC's behalf. WCCYC may use the information it collects through this site to inform you of new services, changes, or promotions. If you do not want us to send you this type of information, please let us know by contacting us at info@wccycrg. We will not disclose your personal information collected through this site to third parties except as described in this Privacy Policy without first informing you of such change in our disclosure practices and providing you a choice regarding such disclosure. 

Generally, WCCyC may use cookies and the information they provide to: (a) remind it of who you are; (b) access your account information in order to deliver to you better and more personalized service; (c) estimate its audience size; (d) determine the nature and extent of repeat usage; and (e) measure certain traffic patterns to understand how users' habits are similar or different from one another, so that WCCYC may improve its site.

WCCYC understands the importance of privacy and confidentiality to users of this site.  From time to time, WCCYC may share donor names and mailing addresses with other reputable nonprofit organizations on a limited basis in exchange for limited access to the names and addresses of their constituents.  We have found this is a cost-effective method of reaching additional potential constituents. These organizations will not have continued access to your name and address unless you choose to respond to their initial mailing.  We do not share email address data in connection with this list exchange. 

We respect our donors’ choices and control over their information.  You, as a donor, may, at any time, have your name excluded from any donor list exchange activity.  To ask that your name be excluded from list exchange activity or to otherwise change how WCCYC contacts you, please email us at

BGCWCC may disclose information it collects through this site when required to do so by a court, regulatory agency, subpoena, law, regulation, or other body of competent jurisdiction and authority, and for administrative and other purposes that WCCYC deems necessary to maintain, service, and improve its products and services and to protect its rights and property. Finally, if you become involved in any violation of security, violation of this website's Terms of Use, or violation of any party's or third party's rights, WCCYC may release information about you to assist in investigating, resolving, or remediating any such incidents.


Integrity and Security

Use of SSL and encryption – When WCCYC transfers and receives certain types of sensitive information such as online donations and account information, we direct visitors to a secure server, which communicates via SSL encryption and which has been designed to reduce the possibility of interception and hacking. You’ll know that you’re in a secure area of our website when the "http" portion of the WCCYC website address in your browser changes to "https." The "s" stands for "secure."

Restricting who has access to your information – WCCYC employs commercially reasonable managerial and technical measures to help protect the security and integrity of the personal information it collects online through this site. You acknowledge, however, that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while WCCYC strives to protect your personal information, WCCYC cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to or from this site


Privacy Practices of Other Sites

This Privacy Policy only address the use and disclosure of information WCCYC collects online through this site, not information that BGCWCC collects through other sources. For your convenience, this site may contain links, or addresses, that you can simply click to open other useful sites where we do not control the content or privacy policy. Carefully review the approach these sites take to your privacy before you use them or provide them with information.

We assume no liability for any unauthorized actions of third parties or accidental transmission errors that may disclose information about you, and BGCWCC is not responsible for these other sites' privacy practices, which may be different from WCCYC's privacy practices.
