1.Sharing your personal information
We have a very simple and straightforward policy:
We do not trade, sell, share, or rent, your personal information with outsiders without your advance approval.
2. What donor information do we collect and how do we use it?
Here are the types of donor information that we collect and maintain:
• contact information: name, organization/company, complete address, phone number, email address. • donation information: amounts donated, date of donation(s), method.
• your requests and comments.
We use that information to enable staff, employees, or volunteers managing this information to:
• Process your donation.
• Acknowledge and show gratitude for your donation.
• Mail year-end tax statements to you.
• Send you newsletters and e-mail updates about the impact of your and other donors on our work (including further charitable solicitations).
• We do NOT list individuals’ names in ANY of our publications.
If you make your donation online, please be aware that PawPADs uses third party organizations to process online donations and PawPADs not receive, gather, or retain your credit card or personal information from these transactions.
You need to read the privacy and security policies of these services, as PawPADs cannot absolutely guarantee that the information and/or credit card data will be secure, and PawPADs is not liable for information you choose to share with them.
3. How do we protect your information?
PawPADs employs reasonable technical, administrative, and physical safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information, both on-line and off-line.
Online: PawPADs occasionally partners with third-party service providers such as [but not limited to] Razoo, MightyCause, PayPal Giving, Constant Contact, and Network Solutions, to process online donations, host our website, conduct email campaigns, and distribute e-newsletters and other online publications. All of our partners use industry-recognized technical safeguards, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, to protect any information you choose to provide them (such as, but not limited to, credit card information). However, in all cases, PawPADs cannot absolutely guarantee that the information and/or credit card data will be secure, and PawPADs is not liable for information you choose to share with them.
Off-line: While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect donor information off-line. All our donors’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to your information. Our staff and volunteers are educated about the importance of safeguarding your information and we are committed to holding them accountable for protecting your confidentiality. All our databases are password-protected to ensure that unauthorized users cannot access your information.
Notwithstanding our efforts, we cannot guarantee absolute or unqualified protection of this information due to criminal activity on our physical premises or breach of security on our premises, nor do we make any representations or warranties as to the effectiveness of our security and assume no liability for security breaches or any failure in the security of your computer equipment, your internet service provider or other networks and communications providers.
