Privacy Statement

Last Updated: December 5, 2019

Welcome to our web site (“Site”) operated by the Animal Medical Center, Inc. (“we,” “our,” “us” and “AMC”). AMC is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Statement (“Statement”), which is part of our Terms of Use, governs our collection, use, sharing, and storage of your information.

By using our Site, you agree to this Statement. We may modify this Statement at any time by posting a revised version on our Site or, if we determine appropriate, by sending you email or other notice. Please review this Statement from time to time because your continued use of our Site after a modified Statement has been posted indicates your consent to the updated Statement.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

We collect personally identifiable information about you when you voluntarily provide it to us (“Personal Information”). For example, we collect Personal Information when you sign up for our mailing list or contact us through our Contact Us, account registration, donation, and event registration pages. The Personal Information we collect may include your name, email and physical addresses, zip code, telephone number, fax number, and gender. We also may collect information about your pet and your pet’s health as well as information about your referring veterinarian.

We use your Personal Information for the purposes for which you provide it, including responding to your inquiries, communicating about your account and transactions (donations, event registrations, etc.), communicating about changes in our policies, sending newsletters and other information, or soliciting donations or your participation in surveys.

We also keep track of AMC services you have received so that we can improve our offerings to you. For example, when you tell us about your pet’s health and how to contact you, we use that information to provide veterinary care to your pet and to communicate with you and your referring veterinarian about the care.

We may also use your Personal Information to inform you about AMC and our services or other material we think may be of interest. If you no longer wish to receive communications from us, you may follow the unsubscribe and opt out instructions in the materials you receive or you may email us at info@amcny.org or call us at (212) 329-8660, 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. Of course, there may be administrative and similar communications we need to send about our services and transactions, so you may not be able to opt out from those. We will make reasonable efforts to enable you to review your Personal Information and, upon your instructions, to correct inaccuracies in your Personal Information. If you wish to review or correct your Personal Information, please email us at info@amcny.org.

Donor Privacy / Collecting Donations via Network for Good

You may support AMC through Network for Good, a non-profit organization that assists other non-profit organizations (like AMC) with their fundraising activities. Your donation transaction is subject to Network for Good’s Privacy, Security & Disclosure Statement and the Charitable Solicitation Disclosure, which we encourage you to review to learn how Network for Good treats your information. Please also review our Terms of Use for further information about Network for Good.

Network for Good makes available to us some of the information you provide when you make a donation, such as your name, contact information, the amount of your gift, the particular AMC fund you designated to benefit from your donation, and any honorary or memorial dedications (e.g. gifts “in honor of” or “in memory of” a person or pet). We treat this information just like any other Personal Information we collect via our Site. Network for Good does not share your credit-card number with us.

We may combine your Personal Information collected through our Site with information collected from publicly available sources to perform research and analysis concerning donors and potential donors and their interests.

We will not sell, share, or trade our donors’ names or personal information with another entity, nor send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations. This Statement applies to all Personal Information of our donors, whether collected online or offline.
