Information Collection and Use
The Sierra Club Foundation website collects standard tracking information about each visitor to our website in three ways: (1) through your IP address, which does not contain any personal information, (2) through any email correspondence you send to us, and (3) when you submit information using an online form on one of our web pages. Information from your browser, including your IP address, pages you visit, the length of time you spend on our site, and the files you download, is recorded in our website server logs. We use and analyze this data to develop site content and to provide you with a positive experience when you visit our website.
Online giving transactions are processed on a secure server. The Sierra Club Foundation uses industry accepted data collection and encryption methodologies in an attempt to ensure the secure collection and transmission of sensitive user information. We occasionally have third parties perform services on our behalf, such as data processing, marketing, analytics, financial transaction and credit card processing. These third parties may have access to the personal information you provide us through the website only as needed to perform their services for TSCF, and are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of the personal information. While we try our best to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
The Sierra Club Foundation may share information collected through its website with the Sierra Club, a related but independent nonprofit organization whose charitable programs, as defined by the Internal Revenue Code, are fiscally sponsored by TSCF. The Sierra Club also provides fundraising services to TSCF pursuant to a fundraising cost-sharing agreement. However, except as provided in the previous paragraph regarding online giving transactions, neither The Sierra Club Foundation nor the Sierra Club will sell, rent, loan, or otherwise disclose your personal information outside our organizations, with the exception that TSCF may use or disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary or appropriate.
Choice, Opt-Out and Correction Procedures
If you previously chose to have your information shared, or to receive communications from TSCF, you may opt-out or change your information at any time. See below for information about how you can contact us.
Third Party Sites
Throughout our website, we offer links to third party sites. TSCF is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such sites. Since we do not control those websites, we encourage you to review their privacy policies as well.
