We may acknowledge you by name in our publications or on our Websites if you make a donation or purchase a ticket to one of our events, unless you request that your donation or purchase be anonymous.

From time to time, the Conservancy may conduct surveys.  We may use the information gathered from the surveys to better understand our users, donors, members, and friends and determine how best to serve them.

The Conservancy may combine the information you provide us online with other Personally Identifiable Information, such as geographical information and purchase history, in order to better serve our visitors and Website users.

The Conservancy’s Websites automatically collect some anonymous "non-personally identifiable" aggregate information, which may include visitors' type of browsers, operating systems, Internet Service Providers, and other similar information.  The information collected is used for statistical purposes to monitor how visitors to the Conservancy’s Websites navigate our site, allowing us to tailor our Websites to better accommodate our visitors.

External use

We will only use your Personally Identifiable Information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise disclosed at the time we request such information from you.  We do not sell, trade, share, or transfer your personal data to any third parties, other than to a third party who acts as an agent and stores personal information on our behalf or as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. We may share non-personally identifiable aggregate statistical data with third parties.

Except as provided in or permitted by this Privacy Policy, we will not share, sell, or distribute any of the personal information you provide to us without your consent unless we believe it is required by law.  We will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity of anyone posting any defamatory, obscene, or otherwise illegal material on the Websites.

The Conservancy may disclose Personally Identifiable Information to third-party vendors or independent contractors it engages in order to help it better serve visitors and customers (to the extent necessary to provide such assistance), including vendors that assist us in fulfilling orders through the online shop or processing donations and gifts.  The Conservancy requires its vendors and independent contractors to maintain the confidentiality and security of Conservancy information to which they are provided access in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy and restricts the vendors from using the information in any way not expressly authorized by the Conservancy.

We may disclose Personally Identifiable Information in special circumstances when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to protect the safety and/or security of our users, the Websites, or the general public. 

We reserve the right to transfer Personally Identifiable Information and other information to a third party in the event of a sale, merger, or other transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of the Conservancy provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of this Privacy Policy.  We will notify users of any such transfer through notice on our Websites.

Data Security

The security of your Personally Identifiable Information is important to us.  We employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect such information.  Nonetheless, because no security measures are completely effective, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any Personally Identifiable Information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

When you submit personal and credit card information through the Websites, the Conservancy receives such information using secure socket layering (SSL) technology.  We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and administrative procedures for Personally Identifiable Information that we collect online through the Websites.

We cannot ensure the security of any Personally Identifiable Information you choose to make public in a comment.  Also, we cannot ensure that parties who have access to such publicly available information will respect your privacy.  Please exercise caution when deciding to disclose Personally Identifiable Information in comments.

Children

The Conservancy does not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 13.  If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal data to the Conservancy.  The Conservancy encourages parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce this Privacy Policy by instructing children to never provide personal data to the Conservancy without their permission.  In the event the Conservancy learns it has inadvertently gathered personal information from children under the age of 13, the Conservancy will take reasonable measures to promptly erase such information from its records.

Cookies

The Conservancy’s Websites use cookies (small files that store information on your computer's web browser) or other tracking technologies to enhance user experience on the site.  Cookies are used to perform certain functions such as saving personal interests and preferences, delivering content specific to these interests and preferences, and tracking activity on the Websites.  You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and delete any cookies you receive. 

Links to Other Sites

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the collection and use of any information gathered by or through any third-party websites.  The Conservancy is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any third-party websites, including any such websites to which the Websites provide links.  The Conservancy encourages you to review the privacy policies of third-party websites to understand what policies apply to their collection and use of your information.

The Conservancy reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy from time to time and, if we do, we will post the revised Privacy Policy here so that you will always know the terms regarding how we collect, use, and disclose your information.  Your continued use of the Websites following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy will mean that you accept those changes.
