Information We Collect
Our Site is intended to make it easy for you to schedule appointments for in-person pickup of items you want to donate to AMVETS. When you schedule a pickup online through our Site we need to know certain information about you so that our truck drivers can fulfill your pickup request. For example, we ask you for the following Personal Information: E-mail Address; Telephone Number; Last Name; and Pickup Address.
How We Use Your Personal Information
We use your Personal Information primarily for fulfilling your pickup request. For example, the Pickup Address you supply us with is the address that our truck driver will stop by to pick up the items you wish to donate. Also, before our driver stops by your Pickup Address your Telephone Number is used to confirm your pickup appointment. Your Personal Information may also be used to communicate with you about subsequent donations and pickup requests in the future. For example, AMVETS and/or AMVETS Orlando may contact you to inquire about your interest in making additional donations. Also, your Personal Information, including your E-mail Address and Telephone Number, are used to authenticate your identity should you need to modify or cancel a pickup request you have made with our Site.
Disclosure of Your Personal Information
We do not sell, rent, lease or disclose your Personal Information to unaffiliated entities, except in the limited circumstances listed below. When you provide Personal Information to AMVETS Orlando through our website we share your information with our non-profit partner AMVETS. We also have the right to share your Personal Information with contractors who provide services on our behalf. These third party contractors are the specialists who make our service function. For example, these specialists offer services such as Site design, development, hosting, and other operations which make our Site work. Other third party contract service providers may help us (and the AMVETS) communicate with you through electronic mail, direct mail, or telephone communication. We always request that our contract service providers also protect your privacy and not disclose your Personal Information to third party marketers that are not associated with us or the AMVETS. Additionally, such providers are not to use your Personal Information for their own marketing or promotional purposes. We will make your Personal Information available to non-affiliated third parties only in the following limited circumstances:
- When we are compelled to do so by a governmental agency, court or other entity (e.g., to respond to subpoenas, court orders or legal process);
- If, in our sole discretion, we believe such disclosure to be necessary or appropriate to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, to protect our business and assets, to defend our interests and/or to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations; or
- In the event of a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, transfer of control, joint venture or other business combination involving us, or our related companies.
Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information
Your E-mail Address and Telephone Number are used to authenticate your pickup request. Using this Personal Information you may log in to our Site and modify your account with us. This includes updating your Personal Information and modifying or canceling a pickup request.
How We Protect Your Personal Information
We know it takes confidence and trust to share Personal Information online. We endeavor to keep your confidence and maintain your trust by protecting your Personal Information. To that end, we maintain reasonable standards of security and confidentiality. However, despite our efforts, as with most Internet sites, it is possible that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions of private communications. Whenever you provide Personal Information online, you accept this risk, including when you share your Personal Information with us. Notwithstanding these inherent risks, we make a concerted good faith effort to ensure that your Personal Information is protected by maintaining the reasonable standards of security and confidentiality mentioned above. We request that our contract service providers follow the same policy.
