Information We Collect

We collect only the personal information you voluntarily provide to us or that is given to us by entities or third parties that have your permission to share your personal information.
Personal information can include but is not limited to your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit or debit card number, and may also include
personal preferences selected from our Web site.

In correspondence, we use clear JPEG;s (image files) in our HTML-based e-mails to let us know which e-mails have been opened and use bounce-back technologies for
undeliverable e-mails. These assist us in managing correct e-mail addresses, as well as to determine what information is important to you as a reader.

Each time you visit our site, our server will record your server address, your domain name, your browser type, your platform, the date and time of visit, and the titles of pages you
view. This information is collected to help us diagnose problems, evaluate traffic patterns, and plan improvements to our site for the best usability. For instance, the most commonly-
used pages should be refreshed with information more often, and the most popular browsers should be included in our test procedures before deployment.

We use your personal information to do the following:

1. Process your donation to THF
2. Send you newsletters and special informational brochures

for an event, tickets, purchases from an auction or information requests.

We do not share your personal information for use by other companies except in the case where those companies are performing a service for THF. For instance, a direct mailing
for an event would require us to share your address with our direct mail supplier. A credit or debit card number would be shared with a credit card processing company.
