ENVIRONMENTAL LEARNING FOR KIDS – ELK
How We Collect and Use Information
We may collect information in several ways by your use of this Site, as well as from participant applications, other forms, or personal correspondence, such as emails or letters that you send to us. We may ask you to voluntarily provide us with personal information on this Site. In addition, when you log onto the Site, our servers may log your IP address, the URL of your request and other information that is provided in the HTTP header. Also, our third-party service providers may ask you to voluntarily provide personal information on their websites and may share such personal information with us, as governed by their respective privacy policies. Our use of information received from a service provider will be dictated by the service provider's privacy policies and not this Policy.
The types of personally identifiable information we collect from you depend upon whether you are a participant in our programs, a volunteer, a guide, a financial supporter, and/or a Site visitor. Information we collect may include your name, email addresses, postal addresses, ZIP code, employer, job title, telephone number, credit card information, date of birth, gender, age, user name and password, and other information either desirable or necessary to provide quality services to our participants, volunteers and visitors. We may also collect information about you such as your use of the Site and communication preferences.
ELK may use the information collected from you to provide services which you have requested from us. We may also use your personal information to send you targeted messages, publications, news, and information about events, special offers, promotions and benefits. ELK may use third-party service providers to send and distribute e-mail and to perform other marketing and support functions. We may use information we collect from you to improve the content of this Site, to enhance users' experiences when visiting this Site, and to customize the content and layout of this Site for each individual user.
Sharing of Personal Information
We may share your personal information with our third-party service providers or with other select third parties who offer goods or services we think may be of interest to you. From time to time, we may partner with other organizations or companies to provide co-sponsored or co-branded promotions, services or events and may share your personal information with our co-sponsor. ELK also may provide your personal information to service providers or contractors to perform functions on its behalf, such as but not limited to companies or individuals hired to: communicate news, deliver promotional materials via e-mail and direct mail, to develop, enhance, market or provide any of ELK's services, to process credit card payments and to assist ELK with sending communications and performing other marketing and support functions. Also, ELK may use third-party social media platforms, including third-party social media websites, to communicate with you.
We also may share with third parties aggregated demographic and statistical information that is not personally identifiable.
ELK also may disclose an individual's personal information:
to a person who in the reasonable judgment of ELK is seeking the information as an agent of the individual;
in situations where sharing or disclosing your information is required in order to offer you products or services you desire;
to a third party or parties, where disclosure is required or permitted by law; and
to any successor in interest to all or a portion of our organization by merger, reorganization, operation of law, or a sale of some or all of ELK's assets.
ELK may be required to use or disclose your information in connection with a legal action or other proceeding, including without limitation, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request.
Through the Site, ELK may make available areas that allow for user interaction, including bulletin board services, chat areas, forums, or other message and communications features. Some of these forums may require registration. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information, and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.
ELK does not knowingly solicit or collect personal information on the Site from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If ELK learns that, despite these measures, a child under the age of 13 has submitted personally identifiable information to ELK through the Site, it will take reasonable measures to delete such information from its records and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required by law).
How We Store Your Information
ELK is committed to protecting the security of any personal information you provide to us. We maintain commercially reasonable safeguards to maintain the security and privacy of personal information that you provide to us. After you have submitted your information online to ELK, we recommend that you end your browser session before leaving your computer. In spite of these protections, ELK cannot guarantee the security of any data submitted over the Internet. After your information reaches ELK, however, it is stored on servers (or in the case of information received from you in person, in writing or over the phone, in physical storage areas) protected by procedures and technology designed to block reasonably foreseeable intrusions by unauthorized third parties.
Opt-Out From Mailings
From time to time, you may receive periodic mailings, telephone calls or e-mails from ELK with news or other information on events, services, discounts, special promotions, upcoming events or other offers from ELK or its sponsors or marketing partners.
