For example, we collect Your Information when you register to receive our eNews updates; when you submit user content, such as a comment on a blog; when you request publications; and when you submit an online Letter of Inquiry in connection with applying for a grant from us.

For homeowners requesting services, RT may share homeowner information collected through this website with its partnering “Rebuilding Together” affiliate offices. In addition, RT may share homeowner information with other RT partnering organizations. RT will not sell or publicly share individual homeowner information without the consent of the homeowner, except as permitted by the privacy policy.

We use Your Information for the purposes for which you provide it. For example, if you register to receive our eNews, we use Your Information to create your account and to send you updates for the email lists you selected when you registered. Or, if you request publications from us, we use Your Information to send you copies of the requested materials. 

If you submit an online Letter of Inquiry, we use Your Information and other information you provide to determine if your organization and proposed project fall within our program areas and are of sufficient interest to warrant follow-up. Such follow-up may include research on your organization and its principals. If we decline your inquiry, a summary of the information you provide is presented to our board and retained in our records. 

We may also use Your Information to contact you about updates to the Site or other information we believe you may find of interest. If you do not wish to receive these communications, you can opt out by contacting us at or by selecting the “Unsubscribe” option on our email communications to you.

RT will not sell, trade, or share a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. RT will only share personal information if the donor has given RT explicit permission to do so.

RT strives to protect the transmission of Your Information, but no transmission of data is completely secure, and submission is at your risk. Please remember that any information you share in public areas becomes public, and therefore this Privacy Policy does not apply to any information you choose to make public. Please be careful about what you disclose, and do not post any personal information that you expect to keep private.
