Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At the Sarasota Family YMCA, Inc.("Sarasota YMCA") we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone.
  • We don’t store personal information on our website.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, the Sarasota YMCA collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Sarasota YMCA’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how the Sarasota YMCA’s visitors use its website. From time to time, the Sarasota YMCA may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the Sarasota YMCA’s websites choose to interact with the Sarasota YMCA in ways that require the Sarasota YMCA to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that the Sarasota YMCA gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who register online to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with the Sarasota YMCA – by signing up for a program with a fee – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, the Sarasota YMCA collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the Sarasota YMCA. The Sarasota YMCA does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

The Sarasota YMCA may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, the Sarasota YMCA may monitor which programs recieve the most visits or the highest number of sign-ups. The Sarasota YMCA may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, the Sarasota YMCA does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally Identifying Information

The Sarasota YMCA discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on the Sarasota YMCA’s behalf or to provide services available at the Sarasota YMCA’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. By using the Sarasota YMCA’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Sarasota YMCA will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, the Sarasota YMCA discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only when required to do so by law. If you are a registered user of an the Sarasota YMCA website and have supplied your email address, the Sarasota YMCA may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with the Sarasota YMCA. The Sarasota YMCA takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. The Sarasota YMCA uses cookies to help the Sarasota YMCA identify and track visitors, their usage of the Sarasota YMCA website, and provide a more interesting experience (cookies are used to show the website in multiple colors). The Sarasota YMCA visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the Sarasota YMCA’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of the Sarasota YMCA’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

The Sarasota YMCA encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
