Privacy Policy

The McDowell Sonoran Conservancy respects your right to privacy and understands that your online privacy is a priority. This policy summarizes the type of personal information the Conservancy collects, how the Conservancy uses the information, and other topics related to your privacy.

Collection of Information
Upon becoming a member, making a donation or purchasing one of the products available on our website, the Conservancy will collect personal information, such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit-card information. When collecting credit-card information, the Conservancy encrypts your data transmissions using the industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology - the same technology used by many banks to protect data transmitted over the Internet.

The Conservancy uses "cookies" solely for statistical purposes related to visits to our website and to enhance your experience on our site. We do not collect personal information using cookies.

Use of Information
The Conservancy will use the personal information you disclose to respond to your inquiries and to provide you with requested information or products related to us. If you choose to provide your credit card information to pay dues, make a donation, subscribe to an event or purchase merchandise, we will provide minimally necessary information to authorized third-parties to process your payments. However, under no circumstances will your personal information be sold or otherwise distributed. It may be necessary, if required by law or court order, to release your personal information.

The Conservancy publishes name and membership levels of our donors and members in our newsletter and annual report. If you do not wish to have your name published when making a donation or becoming a member, please notify us. We may occasionally contact you by U.S. mail or e-mail with information about upcoming events, the status of your membership, or requests for donation.

Our website contains links to other sites solely for your convenience. As a general matter, we do not endorse or otherwise accept responsibility for the views expressed, contents or privacy policies of those sites.

Privacy Policy Modifications
The Conservancy reserves the right to modify this privacy policy at any time. Any modifications will be promptly added to this web page.
