Information Collected

For each visitor to our website, our servers collect information about your interactions with our web site, including your IP address and web browser used. We use third-party service providers to perform certain services. The third-party service providers may collect your bank or credit card information if you submit a donation, but that information is not passed on to RTSWS. We also use a third-party service provider to collect information needed to conduct background checks on our volunteers (e.g., date of birth and social security number). During student and volunteer registration, we collect names, postal and email addresses, and other information you voluntarily submit to us. We also collect personal information of visitors who submit their information via our online forms (e.g., Registration, Contact Us).


We maintain an internal email list of all persons who have requested information, enrolled in our programs, volunteered, etc. We use this list to send emails about our organization. If you do not wish to receive email, you may opt out at any time by sending an email to Requests are processed within 10 business days.
