What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information

Rescue Ranch is the sole owner of the information collected on www.rescueranch.com. Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, e-mail address, address, interests, and similar information. This information may be shared within our organization for the purposes of responding to any comments or questions you submit and/or providing follow-up information about our organization.

If you purchase a product or service from us or donate, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, e-mail, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date).

We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on our web site.

Donor Information

For your privacy, Rescue Ranch does not sell, rent, lend or exchange our mailing or contributor lists.

Internet Protocol Address

We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, track users' movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the Site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Use of "Cookies"

Our Site may use cookies to enhance your experience while using our Site. Cookies are pieces of information that some web sites transfer to the computer that is browsing that web site and are used for record-keeping purposes at many web sites. Use of cookies makes web-surfing easier by performing certain functions such as saving your passwords, your personal preferences regarding your use of the particular web site and to make sure you don't see the same ad repeatedly. Many consider the use of cookies to be an industry standard.

Your browser is probably set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you can alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our Site will not function properly when you view them.

We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site.

Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information such as a credit card number on our donation or order forms, we encrypt that information using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.

Tell-A-Friend

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our Site, we ask them for the friend's name and e-mail address. Rescue Ranch will automatically send the friend a one-time e-mail inviting them to visit the Site. Rescue Ranch stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time e-mail.

Our Site contains links to other web sites that are not owned or controlled by Rescue Ranch. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another Web site for which Rescue Ranch has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may be different than ours.
