Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

This website is operated by the Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA). We recognize that many visitors to our site are concerned about the information they provide to us, and how we treat that information. This policy applies to all information received by ASYMCA, both online and offline, including the ASYMCA website and mobile applications, as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications.


Learn more about policy by clicking the topics below.

Our website does not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it to us. Any time that you provide information to our website, you will be asked to provide consent to the collection of information.

When you make a donation, purchase a product, or subscribe to our online newsletter, ASYMCA asks you for personal contact information such as your name, mailing address, phone number and e-mail address. We may use this contact information to provide you with a receipt or financial report; to contact you to clarify or obtain additional information about an order you placed, a donation you made, or to send you additional information about ASYMCA.

If you make a donation, you may be contacted by us on occasion to offer you an opportunity to make another gift, or to inform you of promotions involving third-party sponsors that will directly benefit ASYMCA. You may also receive a personal call from an ASYMCA staff member, partner, or volunteer thanking you for your donation. You will always have the opportunity to opt-out of future communications from us.

From time to time, ASYMCA rents or exchanges its list of supporters with other trusted organizations to benefit our programs and activities. We have found this to be the most cost-effective method of reaching additional potential constituents and hope you value the information they send you. Your name is only made available to these carefully screened organizations through third-party mailing agents for a limited use. Such organizations will not have continued access to your name and address unless you choose to respond to their initial mailing. You may have your name removed from a list rental or exchange by contacting us via phone, email or US mail through the contact information at the bottom of this policy.

Personal contact information may also be shared with certain vendors (i.e., reputable companies we use for services such as shipping ASYMCA products or sending ASYMCA mail). We have confidentiality agreements in place with all such companies to protect your privacy.

ASYMCA’s website may contain “links” to other sites. We make every effort to only link to sites that share our high standards of decency, fairness, and integrity. We try our best to ensure that these links are safe for youth and appropriate for our users in general. However, since we cannot guarantee the content of every site to which we are linked, youth should always check with an adult before linking to any new sites.
