Personal Information

“Personal Information” is information that identifies you personally, such as your name, address, telephone number(s), and email address. We collect and store the personally identifiable information that you have provided us via one of the email addresses identified on our website or when you otherwise contact us in person, by phone, or by email, with a question, or when you make a donation or become a member.  When you provide us your Personal Information in these or other contexts, you are consenting to DAV contacting you at the address, email address, or telephone number(s) provided, including your cellular telephone with information about services, programs, fundraising, membership, and other similar communications.  We also collect your name, email address, telephone number(s) and payment information when you make a contribution or pay membership dues, either on our website, at a special event, over the phone or by mailing in a check.  The above list provides a sample of personal information that may be collected by DAV.  From time to time, we may collect Personal Information from you in ways not described above.


What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information:

Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, telephone number(s), format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers.


Internet Protocol Address:

We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, track users’ movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.



All information provided to DAV (Disabled American Veterans) is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our Site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of DAV (Disabled American Veterans). Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.



If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our Site, we ask them for the friend’s name and email address. DAV (Disabled American Veterans) will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the Site. DAV (Disabled American Veterans) stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.

To opt out of having your Personal Information shared by us, please follow the process described in our general privacy policy.  We will collect payment information, billing address and other information necessary to process membership dues, donations, or other payments to DAV.  We will use your information to comply with the law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the requirements of law or comply with legal process served on us. We will use the personal information to protect against potential fraud.  We may verify with third parties the information collected in the course of processing dues, event registrations or other donations.  If you use a credit or debit card on the website, we may use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your card information and address matches the information that you supplied to us and that the card being used has not been reported lost or stolen.

You have the right to review information that we have collected about you.  To review that information please contact us in writing or see our general Privacy Policy.
