The Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA, Inc. (herein “the YMCA”) , strives to provide innovative services to better serve its members. The YMCA recognizes that privacy is an important issue, so the YMCA designs and operates its services with the protection of your privacy in mind. This Privacy Policy outlines the types of personal information gathered when you use the YMCA’s services, as well as some of the steps the YMCA takes to safeguard it.

The following principles apply to the personally identifying information asked for and that you provide. “Personally identifying information” is information that individually identifies you, such as your name, physical address or email address.

Data collection

  • The YMCA collects limited non-personally identifying information your browser makes available whenever you visit its program registration website. This log information includes your Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your query and may use cookies that may uniquely identify your browser. The YMCA may use this information to operate, develop and improve its services.
  • For certain services, such as program registration, the YMCA may request credit card or other payment information through methods that encrypt and transport your information over secure servers using SSL 128 bit certificates.
  • When the YMCA requires personally identifying information, you will be informed about the types of information collected and how it will be used. The YMCA hopes this will help you make an informed decision about sharing your personal information with the YMCA.

Information Sharing 
The YMCA does not rent or sell your personally identifying information to other companies or individuals. The YMCA may share such information in any of the following limited circumstances:

  • The YMCA has your consent.
  • The YMCA concludes that it is required by law or has a good faith belief that access, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of the YMCA, its users or the public.

Information Security

  • The YMCA takes appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data.
  • The YMCA restricts access to your personally identifying information to employees who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services.


Updating Your Information
The YMCA provides mechanisms for updating and correcting your personally identifying information for many of our services. For more information, please see the help pages for each service.

Changes to this Policy
Please note this Privacy Policy will change from time to time. The YMCA expects most such changes to be minor, but there may be changes that are more significant. Regardless, the YMCA will post those changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, will also provide a more prominent notice. Each version will be noted at the top of the page. Prior versions will be kept in an archive for review.

Tampa Metro YMCA is very respectful about the privacy concerns of the visitors to its sites on the Internet. As a general policy, no personal information is automatically collected from visitors to its sites, nor is so-called “cookie” technology used by the sites created by Tampa Metro YMCA. However, certain non-personal information of visitors is recorded by the standard operation of Tampa Metro YMCA’s Internet servers. This information is primarily used to provide an enhanced online experience for the visitor. Information tracked includes the type of browser being used by the visitor (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system (e.g., Macintosh, Windows) in use by the visitor and the domain name of the visitor’s Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink).

Each e-mail newsletter always contains instruction on how to discontinue receipt of the newsletter.
