How Your Information May Be Used

We use your personal information to provide you with personalized service; to send e-mail alerts to you; to answer your requests; to process your membership payment; etc. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all marketing communications from us.

Opting into our e-newsletter

Individuals who sign up or otherwise agree to receive VLT e-communications voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We will never share your e-mail address and will always offer you the opportunity to unsubscribe from our mailing list by clicking the “Unsubscribe” or “Edit my profile” links at the bottom of the email.

Protecting personal information

Personal information from members, such as mailing addresses and names, are handled with sensitivity. We will never sell your name or personal information. Occasionally we share this information with non-profit organizations that have parallel missions. For example, we frequently complete projects with partner organizations, and we may share donor names with these partners. However, we will never share your personal information if you notify us with this request.

Any member may request that their information not be shared at the time they make a gift, or by contacting Jane Coffey at (802) 262-1204. If you have questions about which organizations we work with, please contact Jane.
