Privacy Policy

What information do we collect?

We collect information from you when you register for an event, sign up for our e-news and action alerts, or make a donation.

You may visit our site anonymously.

What do we use your information for?

Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

Note: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.

Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred or given to a third party company except for the expressed purpose of delivering the purchased product or service requested or trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or providing contracted service so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

Your data may be shared with Cascade Bicycle Club, our partner organization, for the purposes of shared activities such as the Seattle to Portland ride (proceeds support both organizations), Bike Month promotion, and statewide advocacy. You may unsubscribe at any time from Cascade Bicycle Club emails without affecting your status on the Washington Bikes email list.

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or when you enter, submit or access your personal information.

All supplied sensitive information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database, which is only accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems.

After a transaction your credit card is only saved by our Payment gateway provider, Cybersource, who will securely retain it for 180 days for the purpose of potentially processing returns on your purchases. When you make a donation through PayPal your transaction is protected by PayPal’s security practices; we do not receive your PayPal payment information other than the amount. When you make a donation through ActBlue your transaction is protected by ActBlue’s security practices; we receive limited information about your name, address, and Express Account status.

Your access to and control over information

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:

Do we use cookies?

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser (if you allow) and enable the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.

Washington Bikes uses cookies on its websites to track and process the items in your shopping cart, to understand and save your preferences for future visits, and compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer a better site experience and develop website improvements. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. The exceptions are trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business or providing contracted services so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

We may also release your information when we believe the release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety. Non-personally identifiable aggregate visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.

As noted above, your data may be shared with our affiliated organization Cascade Bicycle Club, a 501(c)(3) public charity.
