- Information Collection and Use
Adirondackexplorer.org collects information from our users at several different points on our website including when you place an order or request free materials. Adirondackexplorer.org is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. We may share this information exclusively with the entity that referred you to Adirondackexplorer.org. We request information from the user on our order form. Here a user must provide contact information (name and shipping address) and financial information (credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer’s orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user. You may receive order confirmation, information on product research and other emails from time to time. Users who no longer wish to receive our information may opt-out of receiving these communications by calling or emailing us. It may take several days to completely remove a user from all of our lists.
Like many other groups, Adirondack Explorer periodically exchanges its donor mailing list with like-minded organizations and list some donor names on our website and where required in public filings with the Internal Revenue Service.
If you wish to opt out of having your name and address shared with other organizations or wish your contributions to be anonymous you can also, call, email, or write to us.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, that information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’. To learn more about SSL, follow this link www.authorize.net.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to [email protected]
4. Log Files
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. No outside parties have access to this information.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Adirondackexplorer.org is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. To unsubscribe from our newsletter, please visit our unsubscribe page. It may take several days to completely remove a user from all of our lists.
7. Surveys and Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
8. Special Offers
We send all new customers a welcoming email. Established customers will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these forms of communication. Please see our choice.
