WheelsUp! Lynchburg is an innovative fundraiser benefiting Meals on Wheels of Greater Lynchburg. Launched in 2019, this online destination raffle is unique and exciting:
• Since raffle tickets are sold online, they can be purchased from anywhere. In the first two years we sold tickets to supporters in CA, RI, FL, ... even the UK!
• Only 100 tickets will be sold to each destination, so your odds of winning will be at most 1:100
• Even though we are based in Lynchburg, winners can travel to the destination from anywhere, so encourage friends and family far and wide to buy tickets. In addition to Lynchburg, so far we have had winners from Woodbridge, VA, Richmond, VA, and Charlottesville, VA.

Information We Collect
We collect two types of information: (1) non-personally identifiable information that is routinely gathered as users navigate through a Website and (2) personally identifiable information voluntarily supplied by you.
The Websites are hosted and operated in the United States and are subject to United States law. If you are accessing a Website from outside the United States, please be advised that United States law may not offer the same privacy protections as the law of your jurisdiction.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Each time you visit a Website, information is automatically gathered such as your IP address, domain name, the name of the page from which you entered the Website, which pages you view, and for how long you view them. As with most websites, we may use “cookies” for marketing purposes, to track usage, and to improve your experience. The cookies do not collect any personally identifiable information. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If, however, you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of our Websites or have some of our services on the Websites function properly.
We may use third-party cookies as part of remarketing activities we conduct with Google and/or other third-party vendors, to help provide you with relevant messaging as you use the Internet. As part of these remarketing activities, these third-party cookies may record your visits to our Websites and web sites visited prior. You may choose to be exempt from the use of Google remarketing cookies at the Google advertising privacy page.
Opting out will not prevent advertisements from being served to you on the Internet; it will only affect advertisements that utilize remarketing cookies to serve messaging on the specified networks. We are not responsible for the activities of other parties that may not comply with your opt-out requests.
Because non-personally identifiable information does not identify you, we reserve the right to use it for any purpose and to share it with third parties for any purpose. Please note that to the extent any non-personally identifiable information is combined with personally identifiable information, the combined information will be treated as personally identifiable information for as long as it is so combined.
Personally Identifiable Information - All Users
We may collect personally identifiable information you provide voluntarily when requesting information, catalogs, enrollment, or other materials or to satisfy other requests. This information may include your first and last name, postal address, email address, and telephone numbers. We may also collect credit card information from you. MOW uses personally identifiable information voluntarily supplied by you to fulfill requests for information, deliver services to you, or to carry out the transactions you have requested.
MOW may also use personally identifiable information to communicate special messaging, new services, or upcoming events. By providing your mobile number you consent to receive communications by way of pre-recorded and/or autodialed calls. The information will be treated confidentially within MOW, in the same way that we protect other such confidential information.
We may share personally identifiable information with certain service providers. They will use this information to process transactions you have requested, provide customer service and inform you of products or services we offer that you may find useful. Our service providers may include consultants, vendors and companies that perform marketing services on our behalf. We require our service providers to protect your personally identifiable information and to use or disclose it only for the work they are performing for us, or as permitted by law.
MOW takes reasonable steps to safeguard the personally identifiable information you provide. As effective as our safeguards are, no security system is completely impenetrable, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of our database and systems, nor can we guarantee that personally identifiable information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
