1) Collection of Personal Information
Our web server automatically records the domain name and Internet Protocol (IP) address of each visitor to our site. We collect and analyze this information to help us improve the site and its resources for our visitors. This information helps us determine which pages you visit, how long you stay and the site you visited immediately beforehand. The Forest Society uses Google Analytics, AddThis and MailChimp to measure visitor interaction with the website.
Beyond the above information, the Forest Society only collects personal information (e.g., name, email, mailing address and phone number) that you voluntarily submit to us. Our website allows you to fill out and submit a variety of documents through web forms. When you use these forms, we store a record of your entry to analyze and determine usage statistics.
Registration is not required to view our website; however, access to some information available on our website may require creating an account on the site.
2) Use of Personal Data Collected
The Forest Society will not sell or rent to third parties any individually identifying information, such as names, postal and email addresses, telephone numbers, and other personal information which you voluntarily provide to us, except (a) to provide the services you have requested; (b) to the extent necessary to comply with applicable laws or valid legal processes; (c) to protect the Forest Society's intellectual property and other legal rights; or (d) limited exchange of names and postal addresses with other like-minded organizations using a process that does not permit the other organization to review or retain a copy of the membership list. These periodic exchanges allows the Forest Society to expand its membership base by obtaining the names and addresses of other likely donors. (Any user may choose to opt out of these exchanges by contacting us at the address below). Information submitted to us is only available to employees managing this information for the purposes of contacting you or sending you permission-based emails following your request for information, and to contracted service providers for the purposes of providing services relating to our communications with you.
