Privacy Policy

The Southern Conservation Trust is committed to respecting the privacy of our donors. We would like to make you aware of our Privacy Policy, and to inform you of the way your information is used. We also provide you with the opportunity to remove your name from our mailing list, if you desire to do so.

Information Collected

Contact information: name, complete address, phone numbers, email address. Relationship information: employer, business name, civic association relationship, how you heard about the Trust, another person you referred to the Trust. Payment information: We collect your card number and expiration date at the time you make a credit or debit card donation, but maintain that information in our files only if you sign up for an ongoing monthly donation. To be clear: we do not keep your card information in our database unless you authorize us to do so. Information you wish to share: comments, suggestions.

How we use your information

Southern Conservation Trust uses your information to support our conservation mission at your direction, and to provide you with the information you request. Credit/debit card numbers are used only for donation or payment processing and are not retained. We use the comments you offer to provide you with information requested, and we take seriously each recommendation as to how we might improve communication.

Occasionally the Trust will publish the names of our donors, for example in a newsletter or annual report. The specific amount donated is not made public, unless you authorize such upon our request. Listing your name could very possibly help increase donations from your personal or business network. However, if you wish, you may request a specific donation, or all donations, be anonymous.

No sharing of personal information

Southern Conservation Trust will not sell, rent, or trade your personal information to other organizations, period. Use of donor information will be limited to the internal purposes of the Trust and only to further the nonprofit activities and purposes of the Trust.

Remove your name from our mailing list

From time to time the Trust distributes periodic mailings or emails related to news about our conservation program, educational and fundraising events, specific fund-raising appeals, and newsletters. It is our desire to not send unwanted mail. Please email us if you would like to be removed from our mailing list.
