Such information may include your name, mailing address and e-mail address; it may also include the e-mail addresses of those to whom you forward HSGD electronic content and any other information collected in the forms. You may be asked to provide credit-card information to become a member of the HSGD, contribute to the HSGD, purchase certain information or materials from the HSGD, or subscribe to various HSGD publications.
Hsdayton.org also collects certain other information, which cannot identify you personally, when you visit our website. This information includes your IP address and your domain name. Hsdayton.org logs these IP addresses and domain names, aggregating them for system administration and to monitor the use of our site. We use the aggregated information to measure the number of visits to our site, the average time spent on our site, the number of pages viewed and various other site statistics. This monitoring helps us to provide a more useful and engaging online experience to hsdayton.org visitors, and helps us to improve the quality of our content.
Ways Information About You Is Used
We may use the information that you voluntarily provide to:
- Contact you regarding animal-related issues we feel you may be interested in
- Keep you updated regarding the Humane Society of Greater Dayton's programs
- Extend an invitation to you to support our programs
We may also send such information to the people whose e-mail addresses you provide when forwarding HSGD electronic content. When we do so, our sole intent is to enlarge our family of informed animal advocates and organizational supporters. Every recipient of our electronic communications can quickly and easily "opt out" of future such communications by following the instructions on any electronic communication that we send.
From time to time, the Humane Society of Greater Dayton may link to other websites not affiliated with the HSGD. The HSGD attempts to link only to those websites that also respect a visitor's privacy and the goals of the HSGD; however, the HSGD cannot be responsible for the content or policies of third-party websites. Please check with these third-party organizations or companies for their specific privacy policies. If you find inoperable links or are concerned about any of the sites that the HSGD currently links to, please inform the HSGD by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Humane Society of Greater Dayton uses generally accepted, industry-standard security systems, software and encryption technologies to protect against unauthorized access to HSGD servers, equipment and other components of our online presence. This includes using industry-standard security systems to protect credit-card processing information.
