Types of Information We Collect and How It Is Used

RMHCDC only gathers personal information, such as, first and last names, home addresses, email addresses and credit card numbers, when voluntarily submitted by you. If you make a donation, personal information will be collected from you in order to process that donation.

We also use personal information collected from you to send you communications, such as, RMHCDC updates, e-News, upcoming events, volunteer news, or family and House news.

If you elect not to receive such communications, you may opt to remove your name from our mailing list. (For legal and accounting purposes, your donation records will remain in the organization database.)

However, these companies may only use such personal information for the purpose of performing that function and may not use it for any other purpose. Other than as provided in this privacy policy, RMHCDC does not sell, transfer or disclose personal information to third parties.

RMHCDC reserves the right to use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of the site, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a matter of public safety.
