We at Pacific Birds are constantly striving to provide excellent service to you, our partners and constituents, while building a long-lasting relationship with you. To achieve these goals, we occasionally need information about you when you visit our site.
Pacific Birds respects your right to privacy. When you visit pacificbirds.org, you may be providing information to Pacific Birds on two different levels about your visit: anonymous statistics collected as you browse the site and personal information you knowingly give us. This document lets you know how we handle this information.
Types of Data Collection:
Statistics about your visit
As you browse the site, Pacific Birds' web servers collect information about your visit, not about you personally. Via web server logs, we monitor statistics such as:
- How many people visit our site
- Which pages people visit on our site
- From which domains our visitors come (e.g., "yahoo.com" or "aol.com")
- Which browsers people use to visit our site
- While we gather this information, none of it is associated with you as an individual. We use these statistics to improve our website, to monitor its performance, and to make it easier for you and other visitors to use.
Organizational/personal information you knowingly give us:
Within pacificbirds.org, you may be asked to give us personal or organizational information in order to participate in a meeting, to receive our newsletter, to make a donation, or to access special services. This information may range from your generic zip code, to your specific phone number, email address, organization URL and mailing address. You may always remove yourself from our email list, or you can contact us to remove your name and contact info entirely from our databases.
How we use the information collected:
To improve our website - information may be collected to help create website content and navigation that is most relevant and user friendly
To respond to user inquiries and requests for information - this includes registrations for newsletters, information about meetings, and specific requests for further information
We do not engage in the practice of selling our customer lists or customer information to third parties. However, we do from time to time engage in joint marketing or other similar arrangements with responsible companies, and in the course of such activities we may share our customer information with such parties, which sharing may result in communications by such parties to you. This sharing is done solely as a result of our belief that the information communicated to you by such parties will be of interest to you.
