The Coalition for the Homeless of Houston/Harris County (Coalition) is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of its online visitors. We do not collect personally identifiable information, such as names and postal and/or e-mail addresses, except when it is specifically provided when requesting information regarding the Coalition or making an online donation. We do not sell or share visitors’ information.
Signing Up for E-mail Updates or Making a Donation
You may use the Coalition website without registering or submitting any personal information.
Those who choose to donate online will be asked to provide information required to process and service the donation including name, billing and shipping postal addresses, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit/debit card number. All credit card numbers submitted to the site for donations are encrypted using “Secure Socket Layer” (SSL) encryption. Donors receive an e-mail confirmation and tax receipt.
If you elect to receive information from the Coalition, we may ask for your e-mail address and/or name and postal address, dependent upon your preferred method of communication.
The Coalition may occasionally post surveys on its website or through e-mail; participation is completely voluntary and anonymous unless otherwise stated. The information from survey responses is used to better understand visitors and increase satisfaction.
Information Collected Automatically
The Coalition website, like other websites, collects some non-personally identifiable information about visitors as they view pages, placing “cookies” (small files that reside in a computer’s browser) on visitors’ computers for site traffic analysis, such as the number of visitors and pages viewed. This information helps the Coalition monitor how visitors use the site, allowing us to provide an optimal experience and better service.
E-mailing the Coalition
E-mails to the Coalition are routed to the appropriate department with the goal to reply within seven business days to those requiring a response. We are pleased to hear from visitors and may choose to save the information in the e-mails; however, any message, material, business information, ideas, concepts or other information sent to the Coalition by e-mail will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary.
The Coalition makes every reasonable effort to ensure that all of the transactions on our website are secure. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
We never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
