Odyssey House is committed to protecting your privacy. We will not sell, rent, or in any manner share personal or credit card information that we obtain from you. Odyssey House will not intentionally disclose any personal information about you (such as your name, address, telephone number, credit card number, or e-mail address) to any third party unless we have your permission.


The Odyssey House website automatically collects some anonymous “non-personally identifiable” aggregate information about visitors when pages on our website are requested through a browser. This information is used for statistical purposes and to help us monitor how many guests navigate our site, allowing us to customize our service for future visitors.

The Odyssey House website collects IP addresses as a component of the non-personally identifiable aggregate information. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by a web server when you’re on the Internet. This information is used only for non-user specific purposes, such as determining how many users visited a specific area of our site. However, if it were necessary, such information could be used to identify a user in order to comply with safety and/or security issues or with legal requirements.


Donation transactions are secured by industry-standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to ensure that all credit card transactions are secure. The SSL system encrypts information that you submit to us via our website when you make a donation. Encryption makes it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept information about you or your credit card information. The authorization vendor does install a cookie when a transaction is processed (see “Cookies” section). Odyssey House donors may become part of a Odyssey House mailing list. However, Odyssey House will not sell, rent, or share your information with a third party.


Content on the Odyssey House website links to the sites and services of our affiliates and third parties. Although every effort is made to ensure that any referrals are reputable, Odyssey House does not control the contents or links that appear on the third-party sites. The sites may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies, or no policy at all. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party sites you may visit before providing any personal information.

Cookies do not allow Odyssey House to personally identify you by name, e-mail address, or other personal information. Odyssey House may use cookies to analyze site activity and customize content. Odyssey House does not use cookies in connection with online donations.
