Privacy Policy for Homeward Bound

Our commitment to privacy
Homeward Bound knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate you trusting that we will do so carefully and sensibly. To better protect your privacy, we provide this Privacy Policy explaining our practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by Homeward Bound. The information below explains our policy regarding your privacy, both online and offline. By visiting www.homewardboundaz.org or sharing personal information with Homeward Bound you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

Our www.homewardboundaz.org website is maintained by Homeward Bound, at 2302 West Colter Street, Phoenix, AZ 85015, telephone (602) 263-7654 and fax (602) 795-6737.

What personally identifiable information is collected by Homeward Bound?
When you visit our website or make a donation online or offline, you may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information) that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes. These purposes include registering to receive email newsletters or other materials, requesting further information from us about projects and services, donating to us, making requests, submitting a form on our website, or simply asking a question. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way, whether it is online or offline. We ask for personal information so that we can fulfill your request and return your message. This information is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies. Homeward Bound does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfill your request, but you will still be free to browse the other sections of the websites owned and administered by Homeward Bound. This means that you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.

The way we use information
When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the service or information you have requested). For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to receive information, to make a donation, to purchase event tickets, or to apply for a job.

Homeward Bound does not sell, rent, give-away or share its email addresses or other personal contact information with outside sources. Homeward Bound also does not send mailings on behalf of other organizations.

Should any material changes be made to the ways in which we use personally identifiable information, Homeward Bound will take commercially reasonable measures to obtain written or email consent from you. We will also post the changes to our use of personally identifiable information on our website at least 30 days prior to a change.

Our commitment to data security
Personally identifiable information is stored on our server and is not publicly accessible. Further, personally identifiable information is only accessed by Homeward Bound personnel on a “need to know” basis. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Additionally, sensitive data such as credit card numbers are encrypted using SSL and other industry standard measures, to provide an additional level of security.
