What Information We Collect

Our donation forms require us to collect certain information including your name, email address, phone number, address, as well as your preferences in receiving other communication from us.  If you make an online donation, our forms will also collect your credit card number.  We request and record only the minimum amount of information relevant to the transaction.

If you use our contact form, or apply to be a volunteer, member or adopter, we collect your name, email address, and phone number, along with the other relevant application information.  This information is forwarded to the responsible volunteer or staff member within the organization for purposes of responding to or completing the correspondence.

In the course of using our website, we collect non-personally identifiable information such as IP address, the URL referring you to our site, which pages you visit on our website, what browser you are using and in which city your Internet Service Provider is located, or in which city your company is located if you are accessing our web site from work.  We collect this information solely for the purpose of evaluating the ease of use and effectiveness of our website for our visitors.

Our Disclosure of Your Information

All information that we collect about you or your company is held confidentially within GRRR.

The organization does not exchange, sell, or distribute any personally identifiable information of any kind about you to any other organization or non-profit.  Information on our donors may be given to persons who need such information to perform their assigned duties for the organization.  This includes companies who prepare our mailings, analyze data, troubleshoot website technical issues or other uses related to fulfillment of direct GRRR purposes.

We maintain this information in our secure database and it may be used to contact you regarding further involvement with the organization, unless you have specifically requested that you do not wish to be contacted.  We may use this information to contact you to verify personal information to complete a donation or other related information.

If you make a recurring donation you will be requesting that GRRR process a monthly donation.  After you complete the initial donation, future donations will be processed automatically.   You will receive a receipt in the form of a letter or email for each recurring donation.  You will be able to maintain or change your donation preferences (amounts, frequency, billing information) at any time.  You may cancel your recurring donation at any time.
