United Way of Pierce County only gathers personally identifiable data: addresses, zip codes, e-mail addresses, etc. when voluntarily submitted by a visitor. For example, personally identifiable information may be collected in order to record a stated desire to donate online to United Way of Pierce County via a direct gift or through a company sponsored campaign. This information is used solely by United Way of Pierce County or other parties to the transaction for the purpose of executing the transaction.


We have addressed the safety and security of your transaction with the greatest consideration. We use a high-grade encryption and the https security protocol, SSL, to communicate with your browser software. This method is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept the information you send us.
