The Manitowish Waters Alliance Foundation (MWAF) is committed to protecting your personal information. This document describes the types of information we will collect, use, and disclosure in order to provide you with the most effective online experience.  This system allows YOU to manage "who" sees "what" elements of your personal/contact information.  We will not knowingly share your personal information with other third-party solicitors or others not directly connected with delivering you the information you need to get the most out of your Alliance membership.  

Collection, use and disclosure of personal information

We will collect your contact information including: mailing address, preferred Directory address, mobile phone number(s), email address(es), and your preferred method of contact (mail, email, mobile).  We will also collect annual membership information: renewal period, membership renewal date, membership payment amount, payment method (check, cash),  payment received date, check number, check Financial institution name. 

We collect this information to enable us to effectively manage our Alliance memberships, events/registrations, and donations.  We will only share this information with you (electronically or manually), unless directed/approved by you in advance.  You can select the member profile information you would like shared publicly.  

We use your personal information to provide you with personalized service; to send e-mail alerts to you; to answer your requests; to process your membership application; etc. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from us. We may also use your information to track your visits to our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users' needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties, if needed to effectively conduct our business through our website.

Manitowish Waters Alliance Foundation members and individuals that sign up to receive our e-communications voluntarily provide us with their personal contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We may use this information for specific, limited purposes. You may always "opt out," either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages.
