Privacy Policy

Friends of Miami Animals Foundation (“FoMA”) is committed to your right to privacy and to keeping your personal information private. You can visit the FoMA website without telling us who you are or revealing any identifying information about yourself if you so choose. However, because our website includes areas in which visitors can provide personally identifying information, we have developed this Privacy Policy to inform you of our policies and practices regarding information we collect about you.


This Privacy Policy governs the URL and certain electronic communications sent out by the FoMA. This website is owned and operated by FoMA for the benefit of its members and other visitors.


Information you voluntarily provide

FoMA collects and maintains certain personal information about you when you send us an email or complete any of our online forms. Such information may include your name, mailing address and email address; it may also include a mobile phone number, the email addresses of those to whom you forward FoMA electronic content and any other information collected in the forms. You may be asked to provide the credit card information to contribute to the FoMA or subscribe to FoMA publications.


Other information

FoMA also collects certain other information that cannot identify you personally when you visit our website. This information includes your IP address and your domain name. FoMA logs these IP addresses and domain names and aggregates them for system administration and to monitor the use of our site. FoMA also uses Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. This monitoring helps us to provide a more useful and engaging online experience to visitors and helps us to improve the quality of our content.


FoMA also uses cookies in order to create a more tailored on-site and off-site experience for our visitors. A cookie is a small file that is sent out by a website, accepted by the user’s own browser, and placed on the user’s hard drive. FoMA uses remarketing to display advertisements to visitors that have previously visited our site when those visitors go to other websites that allow the serving of remarketing ads. You can change your privacy settings in regard to cookies in your web browser settings. Alternatively, you can opt-out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.



FoMA also uses web beacons in our email marketing efforts that track behavior such as who has opened an email and when, the recipient’s IP address, the browser or email type, which links were clicked and other similar information. This allows us to measure the performance of email campaigns, see what actions subscribers took, create reports about email performance, improve the quality of our emails and segment messages for specific audiences.



Ways information about you is used

We may use the information you voluntarily provided to contact you regarding issues we feel you may be interested in, to keep you updated regarding FoMA’s programs, and for various other reasons directly related to the mission of our organization. We may also send such information to the people whose email addresses you provide when forwarding FoMA’s electronic content. When we do so, our sole intent is to enlarge our family of informed animal advocates and organizational supporters. Every recipient of our electronic communications can quickly and easily “opt-out” of future such communications by following the instructions on any electronic communication we send.


We will never provide your volunteered personal information, including date of birth, email address, mailing address, first and last name, payment information, donor history, or any other specific information personally identifiable to you, to FoMA’s affiliate organizations, sponsors or other third parties. FoMA may provide this information to its contracted vendors such as advertising agencies, business consultants, and others who will use the information for the explicit purpose of supporting FoMA’s continued work and growth and not share this information outside of the organization. Such vendors will be covered by an NDA at all times to ensure the protection of your private information.


FoMA uses very strict standards in determining which reputable companies become vendors, to ensure that such organizations are committed to the protection of visitors’ privacy and committed to the goals of FoMA. If your volunteered personal information will be used in any manner other than as stated above, such use shall be specifically posted. If you wish to update or remove your information, or if you do not wish your information to be shared with affiliated third parties, please e-mail us at You may also unsubscribe at any time in every issue of our newsletters via the link in the newsletter footer.

Please check with these third-party organizations or companies for their specific privacy policies.
