Nature Connection Privacy Policy

The Nature Connection is committed to protecting the private information of those who interact with us online. The following governs our use of the personal information you provide through this website.

Guiding Principles

When we collect personal information from you, we generally require only the basic information needed for us to provide the service requested, whether that be, for example, to fulfill an on-line purchase, register a volunteer, or set up an e-news subscription. With every transaction or interaction, there is basic information that we must have to do our job well…so we require it.

E-mail Address

We do not sell, rent, exchange, or otherwise share e-mail addresses to anyone outside The Nature Connection. If this specific policy should ever change, we will first post the policy changes on this page and then notify you by e-mail about such changes, giving you the opportunity to opt-out of any e-mail address sharing programs.

Volunteer and Donor Information

Volunteer and donor information is never sold or rented.

Cookies and Aggregate Information

The Nature Connection’s website does not use “cookies.”

Our website automatically logs information such as IP address and browser type of all visitors in order to measure the usage of our website. We use this information to analyze how visitors use our site, which helps us improve our visitors’ experience.

Data Security

All transactions that take place on our website (donations, event registrations) take place outside of Nature Connection’s server through PayPal or Signup Genius. For details on their user agreements and privacy policies, please visit their websites.

Your Consent

By using our website, you consent to the collection and use of personal information by The Nature Connection as described in this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to change our Privacy Policy at any time. If this policy should change, we will first post the policy changes on this page and then notify you by e-mail about such changes. Once posted, such changes shall be effective immediately. Your continued use of this site shall be deemed as acceptance of the modified policy.

Please be aware that when you click on links that take you to third-party websites, you will be subject to the third-parties’ privacy policies, not ours. While we support the protection of privacy on the Internet, we cannot be responsible for the actions of third-parties. Therefore, we encourage you to read third-party privacy policies whenever interacting with, and prior to providing any personal information to, another website.

We welcome feedback on our Privacy Policy. Please send to webmaster@nature-connection.org.
