What This Privacy Policy Covers

This policy covers how CRC treats personal information that it collects and receives from individuals. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.

This policy does not apply to the practices of companies or organizations that are members or affiliates of CRC, which CRC does not own or control, or to people that the organization does not employ or manage.

We may include the names of individuals who make donations to the CRC in our newsletter, annual report or other publications. These listings include names only, without address or other identifying information. At an individual’s request, donations may remain anonymous.

For example, if you subscribe to a newsletter, we use your contact information to mail or email the newsletter to you. If you apply to volunteer, we use information about your background, interests and skills to help you find the right volunteer opportunity. If you register for an event or activity, we use the information you provide to process your registration or application.

If you provide us with your name and address, you may receive periodic mailings from us with news and information about CRC and its events or containing requests for your support. You may opt-out or unsubscribe at any time by contacting us. All email messages contain links to quick unsubscribe pages that block re-subscription at later dates.



There may be some other, limited circumstances in which we may share or transfer information in our databases to an unrelated third party, for example, to comply with a legal requirement or court order; in the event of a tax audit or other investigation; to investigate a possible crime, such as credit card fraud; to protect the security of our website and the integrity of our databases. We may also share, on a confidential basis, your personally identifiable information, as well as a record of transactions you conduct with us, with third-party analytics partners and related service providers to enable us to better understand demographic information about our supporters and website visitors and to advance our environmental advocacy goals, and for no other purpose.

Whenever we share personal information with third parties, we take appropriate steps, by contract or otherwise, to limit the use and prevent the unauthorized disclosure of that personal information. You may opt out of sharing your information with a third party by contacting us at Otherwise CRC does not share its mailing lists with other organizations.

CRC uses carefully selected service providers to process credit card transactions. When you provide credit card information through this site, your information goes directly from your computer to a server operated by our service provider. Our service provider uses your credit card information only to process your transaction and is bound by contract to treat all of your personal information as confidential. Although our service providers send us the information you provide when you complete a transaction (so that we know, for example, who has registered for an event or activity and how to contact them), for your security, our service providers do not share your credit card information with us.

We use this information to improve our website and make it more compatible with the technology used by our visitors.



Donations, purchases and other financial transactions are secure as noted above. When you provide other, non-financial information through this website, the transmission is not secured or encrypted.
