Your privacy is important to the YMCA Retirement Fund (“Fund”, “we”, us” or “our”). This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) explains how we collect, use, disclose and protect personal information. The Fund collects identifiable information (name, email address, phone number or other identifiers) provided by you. Beyond that, you do not have to give us personal information to visit our site. Personally identifying information you provide will be used to access your records, for you to use our interactive planning worksheets, or for purposes described to you at the point of collection (collectively “Services”).

Please be aware that although we use security technologies such as two-factor authentication, confidentiality of Internet transmissions is not guaranteed. It is your choice to assume the risk of an unauthorized person learning your password, User ID, email address or other personal information you provide. Also, please keep written records, such as passwords and User IDs, in a confidential location.
