Privacy Statement

The Central Missouri Humane Society does not collect personal information about you without your consent. The only personal information we collect is supplied directly by you through the use of online and offline forms (for example: donation form, volunteer form, donation check, etc.). The information is used solely to process your request.

CMHS collects and maintains the following types of donor information when it is voluntarily provided to us:

  • Contact information such as name, address, telephone number and e-mail address
  • Giving information
  • Information on events attended, publications received and special requests for program information
  • Information provided by the donor in the form of comments and suggestions

This confidential information is kept on file for IRS purposes. It is also used to analyze overall giving patterns in order to make more accurate budget projections, as well as to understand donors’ interests in our mission and to update them on the organization’s plans and activities. This information is shared with staff, board members, volunteers and consultants only on a confidential and need-to-know basis. We do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. 

Donors who supply CMHS with their postal address or email address may be contacted periodically for solicitation purposes and/or with information regarding upcoming events. Donors may request to be permanently removed from the CMHS mailing list by contacting CMHS via email, phone or postal mail. ¬†Email subscribers can be removed from the CMHS email list by clicking ‚Äúunsubscribe‚ÄĚ at the bottom of the email. All requests to be removed from the CMHS mailing lists shall be honored.


All forms on the CMHS website are hosted by secure servers with encryption to ensure your personal information is guarded.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, CMHS collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The purpose in collecting this non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use the CMHS website.
