You may be invited to share personal information, such as name, contact information, payment information (e.g., credit card information to process a donation), or other information on our site. Sharing this information will allow you to join our email list, make a donation, or participate in other similar online activities.

The Homeless Action Center uses cookies and similar technologies to operate our sites. We may automatically receive and record information from your browser when you visit our sites. The information we collect with these automated methods may include your IP address, cookie information, browser type, system type, and the referring URL.

Our site is connected in a variety of ways to content hosted by third parties, including cloud hosting providers (for hosting our website), cloud email providers (for sending you updates via our mailing list), financial services and payment processors (for making online donations), links to social media sites, links to other sites, and embedded media on the site. When you access this content, third-party hosts may place web trackers on your computer, access existing web trackers that were set when you previously visited other websites, or otherwise gather information about you as you access their content. When you link to a third-party website, you should refer to that site’s privacy policies and guidance.
