When and How Do We Collect Personal Information?
Generally Speaking, “Personal Information“ means any information about an individual from which that person may be identified. Personal Information includes your name, telephone number, email address and street address. It may also include things like your IP address, device ID and location information. Personal Information does not, however, include information from which the identity of an individual has been definitively removed (also known as anonymous or anonymized data).
We collect Personal Information directly from you when you provide it to us, such as when you adopt, make a donation or otherwise communicate with us, verbally or in writing. We also may collect information indirectly through automated technologies, such as cookies, or from third parties.
You can generally visit our Website without having to submit any Personal Information about yourself to us.

Additionally, if you wish to make a donation or purchase products, we will also need to process your payment information in order to process your transaction. Payment processing is performed by third-party service providers.
