However, when you sign up for a program or make a donation allocated to another local Affiliate or program, your contact information may be passed on to representatives or designees of such Affiliate or program.

If you make a donation or a purchase, or otherwise provide your information, Habitat NOVA may contact you from time to time about opportunities to make additional donations or purchases or to provide information about services from third parties.

Credit card and billing information

In addition to your contact information, when you make a donation or purchase, Habitat NOVA asks for your billing address and credit card or other financial services information. Habitat NOVA uses a third-party banking agent to process your payments via a secured server that verifies your credit card/bank information. Habitat NOVA never retains your complete credit card number. Only employees who need access to your personal information to perform a specific job are granted access to that information, and Habitat NOVA and our banking agent will not share your credit card/bank information with any other third party.

Other contact information

Habitat NOVA may ask for contact information for people other than yourself, including, for example, names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of others to whom you send information or in whose honor or behalf you are making a donation or purchase. Habitat NOVA uses this information to send notifications or information you requested and/or to inform the recipient of your donation or purchase, as well as to contact the recipient from time to time to inform them of other opportunities and information about Habitat NOVA. Like you, the recipient will always have the opportunity to opt out of receiving future communication from Habitat NOVA.
