Since its inception in 1972, our clients, community members, supporters, and other important stakeholders have trusted Search and Care with their personal information. Our commitment is to conduct business honestly and protect your privacy. Search and Care requires that your personal information be held in strict confidence. We use your information only for its intended business purpose. We do not sell or trade your information to other organizations or individuals.

Search and Care takes every possible measure to ensure that your information is not compromised in any way. Other than as indicated, no one other than Search and Care staff has access to your information. We allow access to your information to specific funding sources only as mandated by contractual requirements.

Search and Care respects the privacy of visitors to our website and does not collect any personal information.  Online event registration information is transmitted via a secure server using encryption technology. Some online forms on our website are created with third party software through a contract with PayPal, a trusted registration software provider that also utilizes encryption technology. We do not link the web information to any other databases with the purpose of identifying individual website users. When visiting links to other sites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies and statements of each site you visit.

If you choose to send us email, we may retain the contents of your email message, our reply, and your email address as part of our ongoing communication efforts. We reserve the right to call you after you have contacted us and may send future emails to you about Search and Care. You may notify us via email if you wish to discontinue electronic communication.

We keep your personal information as accurate, complete, and up-to-date as is required to fulfill the purpose(s) for which you provided us with your personal information. Upon request in writing, we will remove your personal information from our databases, except where legislation or regulation requires our retention of it (for example, charitable giving history tied to income tax receipts).

If you have any questions about our website or our Privacy Policy, please contact the office at (212) 289-5300 or by email at
