Your privacy is important to us and we want you to understand our information practices for both online and offline use and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you request information about a product or service or register with one of our sites, we may need to know specific information about you in order to process your requests and reply to your needs promptly.

America's VetDogs collects personal information only when you voluntarily provide it to us on our site, such as when you register for an event, sign up to receive emails, make a donation, make a purchase from our store, or to complete applications.  You can choose what information you give us, but you may not be able to access certain features on our site as a result.  America's VetDogs will use your information for the purpose for which you give it to us (e.g., to complete an online Second Sight Shop® purchase, donation, volunteer or admissions application).  We may also use this information to send you occasional postal or electronic mailings.  If you have provided us with your information in the past and would like to be removed from our online or offline mailing list, please email us at info@vetdogs.org.

America's VetDogs will occasionally share offline acquired donor information with like-minded nonprofit organizations in an effort to better fulfill our mission and serve our clients. If you do not wish to have your information shared, please email us at info@vetdogs.org

We currently use Yahoo to process credit card orders from our online store.  You can review their privacy policy at http://privacy.yahoo.com.  We use PayPal to process online donations. Please click here for their privacy policy.

SECURITY

America's VetDogs strives to keep your information secure and safeguard it from unauthorized access through the use of firewalls and virus/intrusion detection software to protect our servers. 

When you place orders or access your account information, we use a secure server.  This secure server software, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us.  Furthermore, all of the customer transactional data we collect is protected against unauthorized access with the use of digital certificates.  Digital certificates for America's VetDogs are issued by VeriSign, one of the most established signers of digital certificates.  You can confirm that a site is secure because the Web address will begin with “https:”
