Privacy Policy


This Privacy Policy explains how information about you is collected, used and disclosed by the Walder Foundation. This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect when you use our website and any other online services that link to this Privacy Policy.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date on this website page. Your continued use of our website after the date that such notices are posted will be deemed to be your agreement to the changed terms. In some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you an email notification). We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the website to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

What information we collect

The Walder Foundation collects information that you provide to us, such as when you fill out a form for email. We collect personally identifiable information (name, address, and email) and organization affiliation, but no personally identifiable information is collected about individuals without their knowledge. We also collect aggregate information about website use, without identifying personal information, such as what pages and sections are popular to our website visitors.

How this information is used

The Walder Foundation uses information that is voluntarily shared to help us define our web content and outreach. We aggregate information about website usage to inform website content.

Sharing information with third parties

The Walder Foundation does not make any list of applicants or visitors to our website or their email addresses available to third parties.

Service Providers: We may disclose information to outside companies that help us. For example, we may work with outside companies to: (a) manage a database of grantee information; (b) assist us in distributing emails; (c) assist us with marketing and data collection; and (d) provide us storage and analysis. We require that these outside companies agree to keep confidential all information we share with them and to use the information only to perform their obligations in our agreements with them.

Compliance with Law: We may provide access to information when legally required to do so, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our website, to limit our legal liability, and to protect our rights or to protect the rights, property, or safety of visitors of this website or the public.


The Walder Foundation provides forms on its website where users can sign-up to receive email messages about our work. Users can unsubscribe from any email list through the unsubscribe link on any email we send you, although we may need to communicate with you for administrative purposes even if you unsubscribe. For United States residents, we undertake marketing only in compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and other applicable law.

Security of your information

We take the following measures that are reasonably designed to ensure that information collected on our website is kept secure and is used as intended: all web interactions are encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL); all data is stored on secure, protected servers with whom we have contracted to support our online communication and email outreach. Under our policies, data is accessible only by authorized staff of the Walder Foundation and its contractors, but of course, the security of information accessible to the internet can never be guaranteed.

Children's privacy

Protecting children's privacy is important to us. Our website is a general audience site. We do not collect or maintain information from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is targeted to attract anyone under 13. We also do not send email correspondence to anyone who tells us that they are under the age of 13 without their parent's consent. Children under the age of 13 should always ask their parents or guardians for permission before providing any personal information to anyone online. We urge parents and guardians to participate in their children's online activities and use parental control or other web filtering technology to supervise children's access to the web.

Data quality, storage, and access

While we make every effort to ensure that all information we hold about you is accurate, complete and up to date, you can help us by promptly notifying us if there are any changes to your personal information. We store personal data for different periods of time consistent with the purposes for which they were originally collected, as subsequently further authorized, or when required or allowed under applicable law.

Use of cookies

Cookies are pieces of information that are stored on your computer and are used for record-keeping purposes. We will ask you to consent to our use of cookies when you first visit our website.

Otherwise, we only use anonymous information (such as IP addresses) to track how our online visitors use our website. We use Google services, such as Google Analytics, which place first-party and/or third-party cookies on a browser across our websites. To opt out of Google tracking, please visit their opt-out page. 

“Do Not Track” signals are options available on your browser to tell operators of websites that you do not wish to have your online activity tracked. Our site operates no differently if these “Do Not Track” signals are enabled or disabled.

Links to other sites

Our website provides links to several other third party websites. While we make efforts to choose our links carefully, we cannot take any responsibility for the content of linked websites, or for the privacy policies of websites we link to. Since we do not control these websites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these third-party websites prior to any use.

Dispute resolution

If you believe that the Walder Foundation may be processing data about you and wish to have access to that information, we can provide you with that data or at least an explanation of why we cannot do so in the particular context, such as if responding to the request would be unreasonably expensive.

Please also let us know if you have any questions, concerns, disputes, or issues. We are always open to dialogue to resolve issues. If your concerns cannot be resolved, we can enter into appropriate third-party neutral dispute resolution. If you need to reach us about a privacy or data protection issue, please contact us using the contact information below.
