Digital Web and Mobile Privacy Statement

Ukrainian National Women’s League of America (UNWLA) is committed to respecting your privacy. This privacy statement governs the collection and use of information collected through official UNWLA websites and other UNWLA digital properties.

Personally Identifiable Information

UNWLA will not collect personally identifiable information about you when you visit our websites or digital properties unless you voluntarily provide us with that information. UNWLA may request personally identifiable information from you if you wish, for example, to access a password-protected website, join a mailing list, or engage in a payment transaction. UNWLA may use that information for such purposes as fulfilling your requests for our information or services, communication information that may be of interest to you, and conducting research surveys. UNWLA will not share your information with third parties.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

When you visit UNWLA websites and other digital properties, we may automatically collect and store information sent by your web browser, such as IP addresses in server logs. We also collect standard information about your computer and about your usage of our websites and digital properties (such as pages visited, length of visit, and search queries). This information, which does not identify you personally, is aggregated and used to help diagnose problems and suggest points for improvement of our website and digital properties.


Like many other websites, portions of UNWLA’s websites and digital properties may use cookies. Cookies are text files that may be transferred to your computer or mobile device through your web browsing software. These cookies are used to remember your preferences or to track statistics on usage of various portions of UNWLA websites and digital properties. Our use of cookies does not involve the collection of personally identifiable information.

Sharing Your Information

In cases when UNWLA has personally identifiable information about you, we will not sell, rent, or share such information, and will treat it in compliance with our Personally Identifiable Information Policy and with other related institutional policies and federal and state laws and regulations.

Behavioral Advertising

UNWLA may contract with third-party vendors to show our advertisements on non-UNWLA websites and digital properties. UNWLA and third-party vendors with whom we contract may use cookies and web beacons to serve our ads based on your prior visits to UNWLA websites and digital properties and to assess the effectiveness of our ads. These techniques use only non-personally identifiable information.


UNWLA has implemented reasonable physical, technical, and administrative procedures to safeguard and secure all information we collect online against loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. This includes the use of encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. Please note that while we work hard to protect the security of your data, UNWLA cannot provide an absolute guarantee as to the security of any information you transmit through our websites or digital properties, and that you do so at your own risk.

Third Party Sites

UNWLA websites and digital properties may link to external sites that are not controlled by UNWLA. Your use of such websites will be subject to the privacy statements of those websites, which we encourage you to read. UNWLA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of suche websites and does not make any representations about them.

What personal data do we collect, and why do we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long do we retain your data?

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights do you have over your data?

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where do we send your data?

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
