Privacy Policy

Brookline Labrador Retriever Rescue, Inc. (“BLRR”) operates the web site. It is BLRR’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Certain visitors to BLRR’s websites may choose to interact with BLRR in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that BLRR gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, more information is required to adopt a dog or join as a volunteer than to participate in our online auction.

In each case, BLRR collects such information only as necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with BLRR. Visitors may always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related or online activities.

All financial transactions, including online purchases and tax-deductible donations, are processed entirely through our secure payment processor, PayPal. As such, your financial information, including credit card and/or checking account information, is never collected by or shared with BLRR or its volunteers.

BLRR discloses personally-identifying information only to those of its volunteers that need to know that information to process it on BLRR’s behalf. BLRR will not rent, trade or sell personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its volunteers, as described above, BLRR discloses personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when BLRR believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of BLRR, third parties or the public at large. BLRR takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of personally-identifying information.

If you are a former adopter or donor and have supplied your email address and/or home address, BLRR may occasionally send you mail or email to keep you up to date with what’s going on with BLRR and our events.

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address to:

  • Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions
  • Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders
  • Send you additional information related to your product and/or service, if needed
  • Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred

To be in accordance with CAN-SPAM we agree to the following:

  • NOT use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses
  • Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way
  • Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters
  • Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used
  • Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly
  • Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can follow the instructions at the bottom of each email, and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.
