Collection of Information
While using our public web pages, you do not have to identify yourself or divulge personal information. We may collect information that does not identify you personally. This may include data such as your domain name, the name of the web page from which you entered our site, and which of our web pages you visited and for how long. We aggregate this data to help us better focus on the needs and interests of our visitors and improve the overall functionality of our Website.
As you use our Website, we will not collect any personal information including your name, street address, email address, and telephone number, unless you provide the information to us voluntarily.
If you make a gift, buy a brick or register for an event online using your credit card information, we enter this information into our secure database, so that we have a record of your gift history and so we can issue you a receipt. Once your gift, purchase or registration is processed electronically by a secure credit card processing service, your credit card information is not maintained in our records.
Use and Sharing of Information
We may use personal information that you provide to us in the following ways:
- To provide you with Conservancy news and events (including, e.g., upcoming events, newsletters, donor recognition, and progress reports on recent fundraising campaigns);
- To process credit card information to properly bill your account (when applicable); and
- To contact you for purposes connected to the Conservancy or our relationship with you.
From time to time, the Conservancy may send surveys. Unless we inform you otherwise, your voluntary participation in these surveys is completely anonymous. We use the information gathered from such surveys to better understand our online users, donors, members and friends and to determine how best to serve them.
If we use your personal information to contact you, we will provide you with a method allowing you to opt-out of future communications. You can also contact us by e-mail, mail or telephone, using the contact information provided below.
Except for Website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our Website, we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties personal information that you voluntarily provide to us unless we receive your express consent in advance. For website hosting partners, donation processors, and other parties who assist us in operating our Website, we require them by contract to keep personal information confidential.
We may include third party links on our Website. However, even if the third party is affiliated with the Conservancy, we have no control over these linked sites which have separate and independent privacy and data collection practices. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content, including the privacy practices, of these linked sites. These linked sites are provided only for your convenience and you therefore access them at your own risk. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our Website and welcome any feedback about these linked sites (including if a specific link does not work).

Protection of Personal Information
We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of the personal information under our control. Safeguards include restricted access to computer systems and paper files, firewalls, encryption and secure authentication methods. We use, or require the use of industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving payment data.
For example, when our online giving form asks you to enter personal information for online transactions, your information is protected using Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL encryption). Any information you supply is encrypted when you sent it from your browser to our server. To learn more about SSL encryption, please visit http://www.authorize.net.
