KUOW Donor Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to KUOW. Here is an overview of what information we collect, how we collect it and how we may use it. Information you provide when you donate to KUOW, that is then stored in our donor management system:

  • First and Last Name (yours and those in your household)
  • Address
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address
  • KUOW content preferences (such as types of coverage, events, etc)
  • Event registration information
  • Volunteer history

How KUOW will use that information:

KUOW will not sell, share or trade our donor’s names or personal information with any other entity. We will also not send any mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations.

Your visit to or streaming session is tracked anonymously and will not be linked to your donor record, unless you are signed into your KUOW account. KUOW may use your contact information to send you requests to donate, general updates about station events or programs, or account-related inquiries such as updating contact information. KUOW may share your information with NPR and the University of Washington if you are part of our philanthropy portfolio, or you have explicitly requested we share your information. However, NPR and the University of Washington do not have access to KUOW’s donor database.

When you provide us payment information in order to process a donation or buy a ticket to an event, this information is encrypted and payment method is tokenized, and is used by, PayPal, Amazon, Facebook and EventBrite only to fulfill your donation or ticket purchase. We do not store your payment information.

You can request a copy of your donor record at any time but must provide at least three pieces of verifiable information that matches your account (I.e. email address, date of last gift, phone number, etc). Please send your request in writing via email or physical mail:

Should KUOW be legally obligated to share sensitive information, we will comply to the extent that the law requires.
