This privacy policy, effective as of January 2020, outlines the privacy practices for Independent Animal Rescue Inc. (“IAR”) and its website,

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing. IAR is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. IAR only has access to information that you voluntarily provide. IAR will not share your information with any third party outside of the organization.

IAR may contact you in order to respond to inquiries you submit, to thank you for a donation or to notify you about upcoming events or news about the organization.

You may opt out of any future contacts from IAR at any time.

Adoption Applications and Donations.  IAR requires all prospective adopters to complete an adoption application, which includes providing personal information necessary for IAR to evaluate the prospective adopter and their household. IAR also collects some personal information when accepting and processing donations.

Sharing.  IAR may use credit card processing companies to process donations and adoption fees. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond processing these payments.

Security.  Wherever IAR collects sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to IAR in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

IAR also protects your information offline. Only volunteers and employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. processing an adoption application or sending a thank you note for a donation) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers which store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Cookies.  This website uses “cookies” to help improve your access to the site and identify repeat visitors to the site. Usage of cookies is not linked to any personally identifiable information on this site.

Links.  This web site may contains links to other sites. Please be aware that IAR is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of any other sites.

If you have any questions about this policy, feel free to email [email protected].
