Privacy Policy

Under The Same Sun is committed to donor privacy. This Privacy Policy explains our practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by UTSS.  

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing 

We collect personal information that you voluntarily provide via email or other direct contact from you. We use this information to respond to your requests and process your donations. We respect your privacy and will not sell or rent this information to anyone. Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you in the future to keep you up to date on our programs, projects and activities. 

We also use cookies, web beacons and third-party tracking software, such as Google Analytics, to collect information about how often users visit our website, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other websites they visited prior to coming to our website. When you visit our website, we may place a cookie on your computer or device which may store certain personal and non-personal information which you have provided through your use of our website.  

Web beacons or similar technologies are used to collect certain information when you receive and open email communications from us or visit one of our social media pages. This information may include the date and time you first opened our email, the number of times it was opened and the number of click-throughs on any links in our email to you. This information helps us track activity, improve this website, and provide more relevant and effective communications and marketing materials. We may also use this information for internal reporting, research and analysis. 

Your Access to and Control Over Information 

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can also contact us via the email address or phone number given on our website at any time in order to: 

  • See what data we have about you, if any. 
  • Change/correct any data we have about you. 
  • Have us delete any data we have about you. 
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data. 

Many browsers contain settings that allow you to block cookies or tracking software. At any time, you can stop Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this Site, by blocking, deleting or disabling cookies on your browser or device setting. 


We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. 

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way that partially redacts key information. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. All credit card processing and storage services are completed by trusted third-party providers such as Braintree, that adhere to the highest level of PCI compliance and regulatory requirements. 

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. 


Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time and all updates will be posted on this page. 

If you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy, you should contact us immediately via e-mail at
