Donor Privacy Policy

HomeAid Orange County is committed to respecting the privacy of our donors. We have developed this privacy policy to ensure that our donor information will not be shared with any third party.

HomeAid Orange County provides this Donor Privacy Policy to make you aware of our privacy policy and to inform you of the way your information is used. We also provide you with the opportunity to remove your name from our mailing list, if you desire to do so.

HomeAid Orange County collects and uses various information from donors that includes: amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments, and email address. Tax laws in the United States and the State of California require HomeAid Orange County to keep contact information and contribution levels of donors on file.

HomeAid Orange County uses donor information to understand donors’ needs and to provide you with better service. HomeAid Orange County will never sell, trade, rent, or share names (unless released for publication), email or postal addresses, or telephone numbers of our donors. If released for publication, we will list the name of a donor on our website and in printed marketing materials, but will remove said name from the list at any time upon request of the donor.

HomeAid Orange County will use contact information (email, postal address, and telephone number) solely for these purposes:

  • Distribute receipts for donations
  • Thank donors for their donations
  • Inform donors of upcoming activities and events
  • Internal analysis and recordkeeping

To accept contributions via credit card, HomeAid Orange County uses accredited online payment processing services with industry standard levels of security and data privacy. Unless requested by the donor for the purpose of processing recurring donations, HomeAid Orange County does not store, nor does it have access to, the credit card information, bank account numbers, or any other account data sent to these processing services.

It is our desire to not send unwanted mail to our donors. Please contact us if you wish to be removed from our mailing list. If you have questions regarding our Donor Privacy Policy, please send us an email at info@homeaid.org or call us at (949) 553-9510.
