General Collection and Use of Personal Information
The HSUS collects and uses personal information such as: name, address, phone number, and email address when a donor voluntarily provides it to us. In addition, HSUS keeps a record of each donor's giving history. This information is kept on file for IRS purposes and is also used by the Development Department to analyze overall giving patterns in order to make more accurate budget projections.
At times, The HSUS shares the names and addresses of its donors with other groups which may have information of interest for the recipients. Once a year, donors are asked whether they would like to be excluded from these third party mailings. Personal account number information is never disclosed for any purpose.
