Privacy Policy

This site is owned and operated by Central Washington University. When you shop online with us, you can shop in confidence that we will not sell any information to a third party. We've included the following information to let you know how we'll use your information.

Information Sharing

  • When requested or required by law (government agencies, subpoenas, or other legal processes)
  • We use the personal information you supply to complete and ship your order. Your email address is used to send you an order confirmation and to alert you to any changes in the availability of the items you ordered (backorders, shipper delays, etc).

Personal Information - Because we offer services on behalf of CWU, your information (non-financial) may be shared within CWU to provide service to you or information to campus departments and/or services. The Wildcat Shop uses personal information provided by you so that we can service your account. Also note that we may need to transfer that information to our agents or employees of our service providers. We will not sell or trade your information to unrelated third parties. When you submit an order you will receive an email confirmation from our system. As your order status changes you may also receive notifications via email. These notifications are considered part of our service and may not be disabled.

No-Sell Agreement - Any information that you provide to the Wildcat Shop is strictly confidential. We will not share or sell any information to a third party.

Third Parties - We may partner with other third parties to provide various products and services. When you sign up for these services or products we will share required personal information that is necessary for the third party to provide the product or service to you. We take reasonable steps to ensure that these third parties are obligated to protect your information on our behalf. It is also against our policy to sell or trade information collected online without consumer consent. We may, however, release personal information if we are legally required to do so. If we are legally compelled to release information to a third party, The Wildcat Shop, may or may not notify you of this release. Notification will be at the discretion of The Wildcat Shop and will be based on the nature and conditions surrounding the release of information.

From time to time, the Wildcat Shop may also send emails to let you know about changes to our site or product specials that may be of interest to you. We may also, from time to time, send you emails about campus events or services that you may be interested in. Any such notification will include instructions for opting out of future mailings.
