School’s Out Washington is committed to safeguarding contributor privacy. We operate under the following set of privacy principles:

The only information SOWA obtains about online contributors or individual visitors to its website is that which is supplied voluntarily by contributors or visitors.

In cases when SOWA may need personal information to provide visitors with customized content or to inform them about new features or services, visitors are explicitly asked for that information.

Personally identifiable information provided by visitors (e.g., name, email, or home address, etc.) will not be disclosed to any other party. If, at any time, SOWA believes it would be to the benefit of site visitors and contributors to share information with other organizations, visitors will be explicitly asked for permission to do so.

School’s Out Washington’s website is not designed for use by children nor does the website seek to collect information on children who may visit the site.

SOWA employs strict security measures to safeguard all online financial transactions. A secure server hosts files and forms that are used to complete transactions. Personal contributor information is stored in a secure database and any data sent to third parties to complete a transaction are encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. To ensure the privacy of contributors, credit card information is stored only by our payment processors and not SOWA. Only limited information, such as the last four digits of credit card numbers, is available to SOWA.

Additional details on our information gathering, use, and privacy practices are provided below.
