Privacy Policy

SafeHaven Humane Society is committed to respecting the privacy rights of our donors. The following policy describes how we collect, protect and use information we receive from our donors. SafeHaven Humane Society is responsible for this privacy policy.

What Information do we collect?

We collect personal information from you when you mail a donation or submit an online donation form, apply to volunteer or foster, share an adoption or volunteer story, provide feedback, sign up for email updates, and mail or respond to any other type of communication such as e-mail, mailed collateral or phone call.

What is our donor privacy policy?

SafeHaven Humane Society respects the privacy of our donors and is committed to the highest standards of ethics and integrity in all fundraising efforts. We therefore do not share, loan, trade, rent or sell our donor list to any other non-affiliated organization.

We collect and use information about our donors including name, address, phone number, email address and mailing preferences. In addition, we keep a record of each donor’s giving history. This information is kept on file for IRS purposes and is also used by our Development Department to analyze overall giving patterns in order to make more accurate budget projections and plan for the future or our organization. Information on our donors is password protected and may only be accessed by individuals who need such information to perform their assigned duties for SafeHaven Humane Society. This includes individuals or companies who prepare mailings, enter or analyze data, visit donors, plan fundraising events, work in a fundraising capacity for the organization or prepare budgets and forecasts. The wishes of donors who prefer to remain anonymous will always be honored.
