Privacy Policy

Last Updated: May 30, 2024

Thank you for visiting the Westcott House Foundation’s (“Westcott” or “we” or “us”) Internet website and related applications (the “Site”). We provide this Privacy Policy to highlight our policies in connection with personal data we collect online and offline. This Privacy Policy explains the types of information we collect, how we may use and share the information, and your options with respect to our handling of personal information about you.

This Privacy Policy covers the following:

  • Collection, use, and disclosure of personal information;
  • Access to, editing, and deleting personal information;
  • Storage and processing of personal information;
  • Cookies and automatically retrieved information; and
  • Account security; and links to external websites.


We collect personal information from various sources. We may collect personal information when you provide it directly or if you provide personal information to use certain functions provided on our Site. We may also collect personal information from companies that organize events or programs at our venues, from other third parties or vendors, and information automatically retrieved during visits to the Site.

The types of personal information we collect may include demographic information, such as zip code or gender; membership information, such as name or member profile information; contact information, such as name, address, email, phone number; or billing information.

By accessing and browsing the Site, you consent to the collection, use, disclosure, storage, and processing of your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


We use the personal information that you provide to send you the information you requested, to send you notices or other information about Westcott, or for any other lawful purpose.

We may share information with others within our organization or with third parties who may join our projects or initiatives. We may also share personal information with third party service providers who provide services for us or with whom we may collaborate, such as technology providers, marketing organizations, and survey and market research providers. We may also disclose personal information if for some reason it becomes necessary to do so to comply with applicable laws or to enforce our rights.


We do not make available to the general public any personal information you provide to us in connection with your request for information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the transmission of personal information between you and the Site is not encrypted and may not be secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to, from, or over the Site, and you do so at your own risk.


The Site may provide links to Third-Party Websites that are not under our control. If you click on a link to such a Third-Party Website, you will be transported to one of these Third-Party Websites and away from this Site. THIS PRIVACY POLICY APPLIES TO THIS SITE ONLY AND IS NOT INTENDED TO DESCRIBE THE PRIVACY POLICIES OF THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES WITH REGARD TO THE COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION; WESTCOTT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PRIVACY PRACTICES OF THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES.

IF YOU CLICK ON A LINK TO A THIRD-PARTY WEBSITE, YOU SHOULD REVIEW THE PRIVACY POLICY OF SUCH THIRD-PARTY WEBSITE, IF ANY, TO DETERMINE THAT THIRD PARTY WEB SITE’S PRACTICES WITH REGARD TO THE COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION. Any link on the Site to a Third-Party Website does not imply an endorsement of the privacy practices of such Third-Party Website by us, and no such Third-Party Website is authorized to make any representation or warranty on our behalf.


We may collect personal information from children under 13 when Westcott holds contests. The child’s personal information we may collect is child’s full name and it will be used to notify contest winners and notify third parties of contest winners, for example, through social media posts. We will not require the child to disclose personal information that is not necessary for the activity.

A parent or guardian may review the child’s personal information, can direct Westcott to delete the personal information, and can refuse further collection of child’s personal information and use of personal information. A parent/guardian may also limit how child’s personal information is used.


Your personal information will only be used to:

  • provide services from Westcott to you;
  • verify registration with the Westcott;
  • communicate with you and/or your household in relation to the Site, Westcott services, and/or your registration;
  • keep you informed of and promote current or planned products and/or services of Westcott and our select business partners;
  • conduct market research and generate and provide statistical analysis and rating information;
  • respond to claims or complaints made by you or any member of your household; and
  • cooperate with government, industry, or regulatory authorities.

Unless you have authorized us to do so, Westcott will not rent or sell your personal information and will not disclose it to any third party except where disclosure is connected to the purposes for which the information was collected as listed above; and where required, or permitted, by law.


You may ask to see the personal information that Westcott holds about you at any time by contacting us. You may also ask Westcott to correct, alter, or delete any personal information that we hold about you by contacting us; provided that Westcott is not required to delete or alter information needed by the organization in connection with legal or financial reporting obligations (such as purchase records and tax records).


Westcott will store and process your personal information in the United States or in any other country in which it, or our selected business partners, maintain facilities for doing so. Your personal information may therefore be transferred outside of your country. Westcott will hold your personal information for as long as we are lawfully entitled to retain and use that information.


When you enter the Site, your computer will automatically be issued a cookie that uniquely identifies your computer to our servers (or those of our providers) during continuing and return visits to the Site. This allows us to improve the speed and reliability of the Site and provide you with a better service. Cookies in themselves do not identify individual users and are not used to collect or store personal information about you. Visitors have the ability to set their computers to notify them when a cookie is issued, or to reject any cookies, but the latter means that certain Westcott services may not be provided to the visitor.

Some information may be automatically retrieved while you access and browse the Site, including:

  • the features that you use, the pages that you visit, and the actions that you take on this Site;
  • your IP address (i.e. the location of your computer on the internet);
  • the domain name that you are accessing the internet from; and
  • the browser and search engine (if any) that your computer uses.

The information automatically retrieved is used in statistical and aggregate formats to assess the effectiveness of and improve this Site and Westcott services, and to determine our visitors’ preferences and interests.

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of any information supplied by you, Westcott has put in place physical, electronic, and managerial processes to protect your information. Additionally, all user information collected and store by Westcott is protected from unauthorized access through the use of secure login information and other security procedures.

You must keep any login, password, or account information relating to your use of the Site secure at all times.

As permitted by applicable law, we may reject:

  • requests to transfer personal information to third parties;
  • requests to access or correct personal information; and/or
  • requests to delete your personal information.

If we reject your request, we will notify you of the reason(s) for the rejection.


This Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will post any changes on this page and indicate at the top of this page the date this Privacy Policy was last revised. We may also notify you of any material changes either through notices on this Site, email, or through other reasonable means.
