Nature Station is committed to protecting the privacy of our constituents. We have created this policy to outline our policy for the protection and use of personal information collected through our website, direct marketing, special events, or other interactions with Nature Station.
We define personal information as information that can be linked to a specific individual (e.g. name, address, phone number, e-mail address or any other information provided to us by members or website users).
How we use the information gathered when you donate or use Nature Station’s online services
Nature Station gathers contact information when you register on Nature Station.org; contribute to Nature Station online, by mail, or on the telephone; when you participate in an event; or contact Nature Station. We use this information to send Nature Station-related event invitations, updates, press releases as well as information about Nature Station’s programmatic accomplishments and initiatives, volunteer opportunities, membership and renewal appeals.
Nature Station also gathers aggregate information about website usage. 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, which helps us determine which pages are most frequently visited, to improve the site and its resources for our visitors. Nature Station does not track individual usage of our website.
Nature Station never shares personal information with other individual or organization.
How your information is protected
Nature Station holds your personal information to the highest level of confidence and security. Our website is securely protected against the loss, theft, misuse or misrepresentation of information under our control. Access to Nature Station’s database information is limited only to specific qualified Nature Station personnel. Additionally, when you make a contribution to Nature Station online, your financial information is transmitted using a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser encrypt, or scramble, data before being sent to our payment processor.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can ever be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information to the fullest extent, we cannot ensure or completely guarantee the security of such information.
We take the utmost precaution to keep your credit card information safe and secure. But if you are uncomfortable submitting your credit card information online, please contact us at 805-479-2729.

To further our mission and better serve our constituents, Nature Station is continually improving and adding new functionality and features to our Web site and improving and adding to its existing services and programs. Because of these ongoing changes and the changing nature of technology, Nature Station’s information practices will change from time to time.
If and when its information practices change, Nature Station will post the policy changes to its Web site to notify its constituents of the changes and, where appropriate and practical, give them the opportunity to “opt-out” of the new programs and practices. If you are concerned about how your personal information is used, please check back at the Nature Station site frequently or contact us at 805-479-2729.
