We take user privacy pretty dang seriously.  Our goal is to make Blind Cat Rescue a great experience.  However, as much as we love you,  we are not interested in knowing everything about you.  Blind Cat Rescue may collect, use and disclose your personal information in the manner described in this privacy and cookies policy. Here is the scoop in layman’s terms: If you sign up for our newsletter  we ask for your name and email address.   We can not send it to you with out that info. That info is stored on Mailchimp.com servers. We may download it in a file to our local computer and save it for 1 year on dropbox.   We NEVER EVER share that info with anyone.   Here is Mailchimps policy statement: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/ If you buy a calendar or raffle ticket for a fund raiser,   we ask for your mailing address & email address.  We can’t ship it with out that info and can’t let you know that it has been shipped without your email address.  That information is stored on GoDaddy.com’s servers until the end of the fund raiser.  That info is downloaded to our computer and stored for 2 years on Dropbox.   The file on GoDaddy is destroyed forever in January when we close out our store with them. We NEVER EVER share that info with anyone. The payment processor is Stripe/Braintree Payments. Blind Cat Rescue does not collect, store or have access to the payment information you provide them.  All such info is subject the privacy policy of  Braintree. Available here :  https://www.braintreepayments.com/legal   Here is a link to GoDaddy’s policy  https://www.godaddy.com/Agreements/Privacy.aspx   If you make a donation to us on our website, Thank you so much!!  The payment processor is Paypal.    Paypal collects the info they need to process the donation.    After we thank you for your donation,  the email is deleted from our mail server.   The info is saved on Paypal’s servers.  We do download  it 2 or 3 times a year.  It is saved on our physical computer and the info is never shared with any one else.  It is deleted after 2 years.   Blind Cat Rescue does not collect, store or have access to the payment information you provide Paypal.  A ll such info is subject the privacy policy of  Paypal (Available here: https://www.paypal.com/ua/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full ) If you are one of our monthly sustainers or sponsors,  Bless you for helping!!  The payment processor is Paypal.    Paypal collects the info they need to process the donation.    After we thank you for your donation,  the email is deleted from our mail server.   The info is saved on Paypal’s servers.  We do download it 2 or 3 times a year.  It is saved on our physical computer and the info is never shared with any one else.  It is deleted after 2 years.   Blind Cat Rescue does not collect, store or have access to the payment information you provide Paypal.  All such info is subject the privacy policy of  Paypal (Available here: https://www.paypal.com/ua/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full ) If you have a birthday fundraiser or donate during one of our tours on Facebook,  thank you so much :)  Your info is on Facebook’s servers.  We have no access to your payment info at all. If you mail us a check, a copy is made with the copier machine and saved with the rest of the bank deposit.  These copies are saved in folders each month in a large tub kept in the closet of the office.  The information is entered into Quickbooks Accounting Software.   Once a year the big tub with the whole years receipts etc go to the accountant for a full audit of the books and for our taxes to be prepared.  The CPA may look at the deposit copies,  if he needs to verify something but I sincerely doubt they do.  The tub comes home, goes into the storage room to never be seen again. With the IRS you never know how long you should keep records so we have them for the last 10 years. COOKIE POLICY:  Our website has ZERO cookies,  no 3rd party cookies, no cookies at all except the oreos in the kitchen that I am not supposed to eat (smile)  We do not collect or share your info with anyone for any reason.  Bottom Line,  we only have the info about you that we absolutely need and we share it with no one.  
5/25/18 The General Data Protection Regulation goes into effect.  This is a European privacy law that impacts any website that can be seen from other counties.  To be in compliance we have extended our privacy policy with more info.  Nothing has actually  changed.  We have never shared your info with any one else, we are not going to start now.
So here you go to make the powers to be happy:
