What Information the Los Angeles Conservancy Collects and How We Use It
The Los Angeles Conservancy collects non-personally identifiable information about you through your Internet Protocol (IP) address, computer settings, and/or most recently visited website. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server; administer our sites; analyze trends; track users' movement through the site to identify popular content and areas for improvement; gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site; and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
When you complete a transaction on one of our websites, such as purchasing a membership or merchandise, registering for an event, or signing up for email updates, we require certain types of information in order to process your transaction. This information may include your name, email address, address, phone number, and credit card number. We do not store credit card numbers, and we do not collect Social Security numbers.
In addition to information required to process transactions, we also request optional information about you such as your interests and email format preference (HTML vs. text). We use this information to plan and deliver content that you find useful, and to tailor the content you receive from us to your specific interests. At any time, you can change your preferences or unsubscribe from any of our email updates by updating your interests or contacting the Conservancy at firstname.lastname@example.org or (213) 623-2489.
One of the services we provide on our websites is the option to quickly and easily forward information about a Conservancy event, issue, etc. If you choose this option, we ask you for the name and email address of each friend to whom you forward this information. The Los Angeles Conservancy will automatically send the friend a one-time email with the information you selected to forward, along with the option for your friend to sign up for the specific activity mentioned and/or to receive one or more of our periodic email updates. The Los Angeles Conservancy stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
Use of "Cookies" ("Remember Me")
If you would rather not receive cookies from our websites, simply uncheck the "Remember Me" box during your transaction. We will then not place a cookie on your computer, though your online experience will be less convenient (e.g., you will have to re-enter registration data and contact information when completing a transaction on our website, and you will need to log in to receive personalized content). You can also set your browser not to receive cookies from any website, and/or to notify you when you receive a cookie.
In no case does the Los Angeles Conservancy share phone numbers or email addresses or permit other organizations to solicit our donors through either of these mediums.
On occasion, we do exchange mailing addresses with like-minded organizations. These list exchanges are for one time only, and the mailing lists are provided directly to fulfillment centers (not the organizations themselves). If you would not like your mailing address shared with other organizations, you can have your information removed from such list exchanges by submitting a written request to email@example.com or the Los Angeles Conservancy, 523 West Sixth Street, Suite 826, Los Angeles, CA 90014, Attn: List Exchanges.
All information provided to the Los Angeles Conservancy is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our website that is only accessible by certain authorized employees of the Los Angeles Conservancy. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
For your convenience, our websites contain links to other, third-party websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another website for which the Los Angeles Conservancy has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites, as their policies may be different than ours.
