Our website uses online forms for prospective clients to request information and/or services. Any personal information (e-mail address, home address, financial information, etc.) we obtain from visitors/clients will not be sold or shared with any third party. All information gathered is used for internal purposes only.

Contact information we collect is used to send requested or updated information about our organization to visitors of our site, or to get in touch with the visitors when necessary. Visitors may opt-out of receiving future communications; see the "Choice/Opt-Out" section below. Financial information that is collected is used to check the visitor's qualifications and bill for products and services. With respect to security, when we transfer and receive certain types of sensitive information such as financial or health information, we redirect visitors to a secure server.

In areas of the website at adoptionsbygladney.com where users' personal information is collected or viewable, connections are SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protected with 256 bit encryption. For the collection of fees paid via credit card, the user's credit card information is entered directly into the payment gateway at PayPal/VeriSign. This connection is also protected by SSL encryption. Gladney neither sees nor stores the payer's credit card information.
