Online Shop & Kiosk Orders
The information collected when placing an order through our online shop or ordering special fundraising items such as our calendar, tote bags, magnets etc. (our "kiosk") is used solely to process your order or to answer questions about your order.
The Cat House on the Kings maintains a mailing list with the information you provide when you sign up for our newsletter, when you submit one of our online forms for a service we provide or make a donation to us. We maintain separate subscriptions within the mailing list:
- The Newsletter subscription list is used solely for delivering to you our quarterly newsletter and an occasional 2-page "help letter", which are Adobe PDF files accessed though this website. You will receive e-mail with a link to the document when a new one is available online. When you opt to receive a hardcopy version, your subscription will continue until you notify us at email@example.com or by letter that you wish to discontinue your subscription.
- The Announcements subscription list is used to notify you of news & events at The Cat House on the Kings or opportunities for you to support our work.
- The Shelter Challenge subscription list is used to send you a daily e-mail reminder to vote for us in a Shelter Challenge contest in which an organization with the most votes can win a grant. You must subscribe to the Shelter Challenge list explicity.
- Subscriptions to the Newsletter, Announcements and Shelter Challenge subscription lists are separate: This means that unsubscribing from one does not automatically remove you from the other. Each message we send contains an Unsubscribe link so you can stop further messages to the corresponding subscription list. When you unsubscribe from one list, you also have the opportunity to unsubscribe from the others.
Your subscriptions will be terminated automatically when any of the following occurs:
- A hardcopy newsletter is returned by the USPS as undeliverable.
- A message is rejected due to an invalid e-mail address.
- If your e-mail service returns four consecutive messages from us automatically either because your mailbox is full or the mail service deems them to be spam.
- If you mark a newsletter or announcement e-mail message from us as "spam" or "junk", causing your e-mail provider to send us an automatic abuse report. We have formal feedback loops established with the major e-mail providers (including AOL, Google, Hotmail and Yahoo) to receive these reports.
