Here at Almost Home we value your privacy and want you to feel comfortable that your information is safe with us. We will not share your name, address or email address outside of our organization. The information you provide, whether through donating, signing up for our mailing list or buying a ticket to one of our events, will only be used for Almost Home's purposes, unless you request otherwise. We may store personal data itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by our affiliates, agents or service providers. We do not store any credit card information on our office computers and ensure that our internet connection is secure when we access the databases maintained by our affiliates. We used Trend Micro Security Agent to alert us to any privacy issues regarding our computers. If security is ever compromised you will be made aware of the situation and how Almost Home or our affiliates are handling the issue. We use three online affiliates to organize our donations, electronic mailing and events and their privacy policies are listed below.


Blackbaud eTapestry

We use eTapestry as our donor database software to keep track of donations made to Almost Home. The donation form on our website links directly to our eTapestry database and is Norton secured. The personal information that you provide when donating is stored on secured Blackbaud servers. Blackbaud Solutions contain designated encryption functionality for the collection and storage of bank card and account numbers and individual identification numbers issued by government agencies and financial institutions. When you donate, we will also automatically add you to our mailing lists to keep you up to date on the good things that Almost Home is doing due to your donation. This is done to ensure a beneficial relationship with our organization and our donors. If you ever wish to opt out of these contacts, contact Almost Home or follow the Unsubscribe link located at the bottom of all electronic communications. Blackbaud will never share your personal information unless you create your own personal account with them on their website. Almost Home is responsible for the uses of all personal data stored on the Blackbaud servers. To learn more about Blackbaud's Acceptable Use Policy, click here.
