COMMUNICATIONS

Clients using our online chat feature are required to enter their email address when leaving messages. Upon doing so, Victim Assistance Program will only use the address for individual correspondence, not for mass mailings. Chat client email addresses will not be added onto our mailing list.

Victim Assistance Program correspondence is made via email or USPS. Individuals will always be provided with an opportunity to opt out or unsubscribe to any future correspondence.

Victim Assistance Program will never sell, share, rent or lease our mailing list with anyone outside of Victim Assistance Program.

Although this information is obtained, Victim Assistance Program only uses this information for internal statistics, for training purposes, and to evaluate services.

Victim Assistance Program and SnapEngage will never sell, share, rent or lease, or disclose any of the above information with anyone outside of Victim Assistance Program or SnapEngage.
