Your right to privacy while using the World Wide Web is very important to Guardian Angel Basset Rescue, Inc. (GABR). GABR is committed to helping you maintain control over your
personal data while fostering the growth of a more interactive, engaging, and personalized web experience. We respect your right to control how much information you provide about
yourself. When you are making a donation, purchasing a product, or adopting a Basset we ask you for personal contact information such as your name, mailing address, phone
number and e-mail address. We may use this contact information to provide you with a receipt or financial report; to contact you to clarify or obtain information about an order you
placed, a donation you made, or a Basset you are in process of adopting; or to send you additional information about GABR. If you make a donation, we may contact you from time to
protect and use information we receive from visitors to GABR and our other web sites, including gabassetrescue.org, bassetrescue.org, GABRfundraising.com, and corvetteraffle.org.
1.What Personally Identifiable Information Is Collected
We do not collect personally identifiable information on our Sites unless you voluntarily provide information about yourself via an electronic mail message or by filling out one of our
online forms. By "personally identifiable information," we mean data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address or telephone number. For example, if you send us an
email or call us, we may use the information you provide to follow up via telephone or email. The information you provide will be kept confidential and will be used only to support your
continued relationship with GABR.
No software or hardware techniques are employed to capture a visitor's email address or other personally identifiable information. GABR does not monitor individual traffic patterns
on our Sites, and we do not use invisible images to track how you use our Sites. Our hosting company may collect anonymous, aggregate information or statistics related to Site
usage. These statistics indicate the total number of hits, the total number of page hits, the number of kilobytes transferred from our Sites, and the IP address of the visitor. If we decide
to use this information to analyze Web traffic in the future, we will only be able to measure the number of visitors to our Sites and the addresses of the web sites from which our
visitors come. email addresses and other personally identifiable information are not available to us unless you affirmatively supply such information.
2.How the Information You Provide Is Used
Should you send us your comments or questions via email to any email address provided on one of our Sites, we will only share your communications with those most capable of
addressing your questions and concerns. We will retain your communication until we have done our very best to provide you with a complete and satisfactory response and then we
will either discard it or, in some cases, archive it. We share your personal information with our agents, representatives, contractors and service providers so they can provide us with
support services such as authorization of credit card transactions, order processing and sweepstakes fulfillment. Except as provided herein, we will not disclose personal information
unless we are required to do so by law or we in good faith believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process; (b) protect and defend our rights and
property; (c) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of any of our Sites; or (d) protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public.
3.Security of Information Sent to Us
Please note that, unless we expressly advise you otherwise, the e-mail functionality on our Sites does not provide a means for completely secure and private communications
between us. Like all unencrypted Internet email communications, your email may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in
transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use email to communicate information to us that you consider to be confidential. While we strive to protect your
personal information, GABR cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will
use our commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our internal systems. Depending on the nature of the inquiry, your communication may be discarded or archived.
4. Security of Financial Transactions
In addition to personal contact information, we sometimes ask for billing information, such as your billing address and credit card number when you make a donation, purchase a
product, enter a sweepstakes, or participate in a fundraiser. All financial transactions on our Sites use an encrypted channel, take place on secure servers, and occur in real time. We
use secure servers to gather and process your billing information. These secure servers are hosted by our agent Ultra Web Solutions, which is bound by our site policies. Your billing
information is not shared with any other organizations, and your credit card number is not retained once your transaction has been authorized and processed.
5.Disclosure of Customer Information Through Transfers and Requests
As we continue to develop, we may buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses, and in so doing, acquire customer information. In such transactions, user information
may be among the transferred assets. Similarly, in the unlikely event that a portion or substantially all of GABR's assets are transferred to a third party, the information you have
voluntarily provided to us, including your email address, would likely be one of the transferred assets. In some instances, we ask for contact information for people other than yourself
including, for example, email addresses of friends to whom you believe may have an interest in GABR or any of its activities, or the mailing address of someone you wish us to notify
of a donation you have made. The information we collect is used to send the donation notification or information you requested and/or to inform the recipient of GABR updates,
program information, and opportunities to get involved. Such contact information is not shared with any other organizations.
6.Our Commitment to Children's Privacy
We recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of children. GABR only collects personally identifiable contact information from children who are referred or referring themselves
as potential program recipients, however we do not share it in any other way or with any other parties. We do not give the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally
identifiable contact information in any way. Sites that support GABR’s programs, are directed to adults at least eighteen years old, and when a user discloses personal information
through one of our Sites, the user is representing to us that he or she is an adult. If a child has provided us with personal information, that a parent or guardian wishes to be removed,
email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will promptly delete the child's information from our records.

Our Sites (excluding linked sites) are controlled by GABR which is headquartered in the State of Illinois, United States of America. Sites can be accessed from all 50 States as well as
United States Territories and other countries around the world. As each of these places has laws that may differ from those of Illinois, by accessing the Sites both you and GABR

efforts will be used to resolve any and all claims and disputes arising under use of the Sites through good faith negotiations and without initially resorting to litigation, arbitration or
other similar proceedings. If the parties to a dispute hereunder are unable to resolve such claim or dispute via good faith negotiations, the parties will agree, prior to commencement
of any legal action or suit, to submit to at least one day of non-binding mediation in Dwight, Illinois with a mediator chosen jointly and paid for equally by the parties. Any legal action,
suit, or proceeding with respect to the use of the Sites will be brought exclusively in federal court in Illinois and each party consents to the jurisdiction of said court for all matters that
arise under said use of Sites. All costs for legal representation in suits in which GABR is named as defendant shall be paid by each respective party regardless of the outcome of the
suit. Except where prohibited, any and all legal action, suit or proceeding with respect to the use of the Sites will be resolved individually, without respect to any form of class action.
