Privacy Policy

The Wisconsin Dental Association Foundation, Inc. (herein referred to as the “Foundation”) is pleased to provide information to donors, supporters and friends of the Foundation about its online privacy policy. The Foundation is committed to protecting the privacy of its users. This Privacy Policy applies to all information received by the Foundation, both online and offline, including information received via electronic, written or oral communications and through platforms such as the Foundation website, mobile applications, and social media. Please be assured that the Foundation uses its best efforts to protect the privacy of visitors to this website.

Our commitment to security

The Foundation’s web pages have an SSL certificate (Secure Sockets Layer), which is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.

The Foundation uses Authorize.Net in the processing of donations. Authorize.Net is committed to providing donors with the highest level of transaction processing security. In addition, credit card information is stored temporarily on to allow for processing. Access to the data is strictly limited.

Types of information we collect and how it is used

The Foundation gathers personal information, such as first and last names, home addresses, email addresses and credit card numbers, when voluntarily submitted by you. If you make an online donation or register for a program or event, personal information will be collected from you in order to process that donation or registration.

With your permission, we may use personal information collected from you to send you Foundation materials. This may include, but is not limited to, newsletters, special event invitations and solicitations to raise funds in support of the Foundation’s programs. If you elect not to receive such materials, you are advised to call or email us to be removed from our contact lists.

Sharing of personal information

We will not sell, share or trade our donors’/event participants’ personal information with any other entity, nor send mailings to those individuals on behalf of other organizations. We may use your personal information to contact you in the future.

Companies may be engaged by the Foundation to perform a variety of functions, such as assisting with donation collection, providing technical services for our websites, etc. These companies may have access to personal information if needed to perform such functions. However, these companies may only use such personal information for the purpose of performing that function and may not use it for any other purpose.

The Foundation reserves the right to use or to disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of the site, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a matter of public safety.


You are in control of any personal information you provide to us online. If at any time, you would like to correct the personal information we have about you or if you would like to change your preferences for contacts from us, you can let us know by contacting us at the postal or email address listed below.
