Privacy Policy

This policy covers web sites owned or operated by The Trumpeter Swan Society (TTSS). We encourage you to take the time to read this privacy policy and those of any web site you visit. The Trumpeter Swan Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to assuring the vitality and welfare of wild Trumpeter Swan populations. Our web site is designed as a tool for those interested in the Trumpeter Swan and to become more involved in our mission. TTSS is concerned about our visitor�s Internet privacy and is committed to honoring our constituents� privacy preferences. We recognize that visitors to our site may be concerned about the information they provide to us and how TTSS treats that information.

You can visit most portions of trumpeterswansociety.org without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. The only information we collect from a typical web site visit does not identify you. Rather, it is the name of your Internet service provider ("ISP"), the browser and type of machine you are using, the web site that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time you request them. We use this information to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of the site to our visitors.

TTSS does not sell or otherwise disclose such user information outside the organization.

Personal Information Collected

In general, when you visit our web sites and access information you remain anonymous. We do not require you to register or provide personal information to us to view our site.

There are occasions, however, when we will ask for additional information. TTSS collects email addresses and other personally identifiable data about you when such data is voluntarily submitted. For example, personally identifiable information will be collected in order for you to become a member of TTSS or to sign up for our E-Newsletter. Contact information from order forms is used to send orders to you.

You may decide to send TTSS personally identifying information, for example, in a message containing information about membership. We will only use this information to identify you and to determine how to respond to the electronic mail. We will not use this information for any purpose other than to resolve the matter identified in the email.

Security of Your Credit Card Information

TTSS utilizes Click & Pledge (http://www.clickandpledge.com) for all of our online financial transations. Click & Pledge does not give or sell information to any third party organizations. To receive a detailed review of their privacy statement, please view their Privacy Statement.

If you are still concerned about the safety of your credit card information online, you may also submit contributions or other payment to TTSS by mailing a check as directed by instructions on the appropriate pages of our website.

Links to Third Party Sites

We provide links to third party sites. Because we do not control those web sites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these third party sites. That another web site is linked to our site does not constitute an endorsement by TTSS of the owner of the other site, the content of its site, or its products or services.

How to Unsubscribe from a Mailing list or our Email List

If at any time you wish to stop receiving electronic information from TTSS, or to be removed from our email list, you can unsubscribe from that list as explained in each message.

Questions

The Trumpeter Swan Society welcomes comments and questions on our site and this policy. We are dedicated to protecting your personal information, and will make every reasonable effort to keep that information secure. If you have any questions, please contact us at ttss@trumpeterswansociety.org. Due to the rapidly evolving technologies on the Internet, we may occasionally update this policy. All revisions will be posted to this site. The revised Privacy Policy will apply to all data collected by TTSS, both prior to and subsequent to the Revised Policy�s effective date.
