Privacy policy

The Ukrainian History and Education Center is committed to providing information about Ukraine and Ukrainian-Americans to visitors of our web site in the most effective way possible. To achieve this goal, we gather some information that helps to ensure our site meets your needs. The UHEC respects your privacy, and this privacy statement provides information about how we gather and protect the personal information of our online visitors. Use of our web site means that you accept of the terms and conditions of this privacy policy.

The UHEC gathers routine statistical information as visitors browse the pages of our site, as well as personal information voluntarily supplied by visitors.

Statistical data

Like virtually all web sites, our software and hosting server gathers limited information about each visitor using our site. Examples of this data include what country you are located in, which pages you viewed, and what type of browser software you are using. We analyze this data in aggregate, and use the results to help improve our site. We may share this aggregated statistical data (which has no personally identifiable information) with other organizations.

Personal information

We do not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily choose to provide it. You may provide this information while purchasing items, answering surveys, registering on the site, making a donation, or becoming a member. You may be asked to provide contact information (e.g. name, address, phone number, email addresses), financial information (e.g. credit card information), or demographic information (e.g. zip code, age, gender, interests).

We will use your contact information to respond to your questions, or to send products and services requested from our Web site. You may receive periodic mailings from us with news and information, updates to our web site, or upcoming events. You may request to be unsubscribed from any or all mailing lists at any time.

We will use your financial information only to process payments for your purchases, donations, or membership dues. We implement all reasonable security measures to protect your financial information. No credit card information is stored on our servers, and your financial information is transmitted to our payment processor using industry-standard SSL encryption to prevent interception and unauthorized use.

The UHEC does not sell or rent any personal information gathered from our visitors. We may on occasion exchange names and addresses with other nonprofit organizations. To request that your name and address not be exchanged, please contact us at, call 732-356-0132, or notify us at The Ukrainian History and Education Center, 135 Davidson Avenue, Somerset NJ 08873.


Cookies are small pieces of data stored by a web site in your computer's browser software. Virtually all modern web sites use cookies to perform routine functions, such as remembering that you have logged in as a registered user. They do not harm your computer system or files, and cannot carry viruses or malware.

The UHEC web site may use cookies to provide you with a more effective user experience by temporarily keeping information on your computer as you navigate from page to page, and to retrieve information when you return. If your web browser is set to refuse cookies, the UHEC web site may not function properly.


The UHEC will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without the consent of a parent or guardian. If your child sends us an email with a question or information request (such as for a school project), we will respond, but we will not use that email address for any future communication unrelated to the original question or request.

Our web site contains links to other sites. These sites are not under our control, and we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the contents of any linked site.

Updates to our privacy policy

We may make changes to our privacy policy, in which case we will update this statement accordingly.
