Our Commitment to Privacy
Donor Privacy Statement
Kids and Canines is committed to respecting the privacy of its financial and in-kind donors, whether the donation is made online, by mail, or any other method. When you make a financial or in-kind donation, you provide your name and contact information. Financial donors provide standard payment information including, in many circumstances, credit card data. We protect your information in a variety of ways, as described below.
We use industry-standard safeguards to protect your information. Many donors use credit cards for donations. We protect the security of credit card transactions using many measures such as encryption, access controls, network firewalls, and physical security. These measures make it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept the credit card information you send to us. When we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, those companies also use encryption and other appropriate security measures.
We will not sell, share, or trade our donors’ personally identifiable information with any other entity, except as described below. In addition, we will not send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations unless a donor has given us specific permission to do so. Kids and Canines has vendors that assist with processing and managing donations and donor data. We give these vendors access to donor data. Strict confidentiality rules bind our vendors and can use donor data only to support Kids and Canines operations.
The Data We Collect
Our website and mobile apps provide convenient ways for you to access our services and learn about important Kids and Canines opportunities and events. We collect information about our online visitors directly from our visitors and indirectly from other companies that provide data to us. We use this information to communicate with our supporters and clients and process their transactions.
We do not sell it to other organizations.
When you use our website or apps to make a financial contribution, register for a class or special event, sign up to volunteer, or apply for a job, we may ask you for your name, address, phone number(s), and other information relevant to the transaction. We will ask for standard credit card information when you make a financial donation, pay for a class, or make a purchase.
We obtain information about our online visitors from other sources as well. For example, we engage vendors that provide contact information and other data. We use this data to help us engage with people interested in participating in Kids and Canines activities or contributing to the Kids and Canines mission.
