The most common information we collect includes name, address, email, phone number and credit card information. The U.S.Vets is the sole owner of and user of the personal information we collect, and we do not share this information with third parties. We also may collect an Internet protocol (IP) address, a number assigned by your Internet service provider, and website analytics data, such as web browser used, content visited and duration of visit, which are typically collected through “cookies.”

How We Collect Your Information
The U.S.Vets collects personal information directly when you provide it to us through one of our various online, phone or application channels for information or assistance; donating to the organization; participating in one of our programs; becoming a volunteer; subscribing to a newsletter or any communication; completing a survey or submitting feedback. We also collect your personal information automatically as you navigate through our website or when you use services associated with The U.S.Vets. We may supplement this with information we collect from other online and offline sources, such as public databases and social media platforms.

How We Use Collected Information

The U.S.Vets provides a separate online form to join our mailing list. Where we have your consent to do so (for example, you have subscribed to our newsletter or have indicated you are interested in receiving information from us), we may send you emails or other communications that we feel may be of interest to you. This information is accessed only when we correspond with our mailing list periodically during the year, either via email or regular mail. You can opt out of such communications by clicking the unsubscribe link included in the email. Alternatively, you can contact us directly if at any time you wish to be removed from the mailing list or if you would like to correct or change the personal information you have previously provided.
