Privacy Policy

The International Crane Foundation is pleased to provide information about its online privacy policy. Please be assured that we use our best efforts to protect the privacy of visitors to this website.

Types of Information We Collect and How It Is Used

The International Crane Foundation only gathers personal information, such as first and last nameshome addresses, email addresses and credit card numbers, when voluntarily submitted by you. If you make an online donation, personal information will be collected from you to process that donation.

With your permission, we will use personal information collected from you to send you information, such as our newsletter, special event invitations and fundraising campaigns. If you do not elect to receive such materials, we will not send them to you.

Data Security

We take the security of your personal information seriously. The International Crane Foundation guards against personal data loss, misuse and alteration through reasonable physical, technical and administrative security measures. We use industry-accepted collection and encryption mechanisms to ensure the secure collection, storage and transmission of user information.

Sharing of Personal Information

Companies may be engaged by the International Crane Foundation to perform various functions, such as assisting with donation processing, providing technical services for our websites, etc. These companies may have access to personal information if needed to perform such functions. However, these companies may only use such personal information to perform that function and may not use it for any other purpose. Other than as provided in this privacy policy, the International Crane Foundation does not sell, transfer or disclose personal information to third parties.

Further, we do not distribute any electronic or other communications on behalf of other organizations. This policy includes information received by the International Crane Foundation through electronic, written or oral communications. Where a third-party service provider is used to process contributions, personal information will be used only as necessary to process the transaction and not for any other purpose.

The International Crane Foundation reserves the right to use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of the site, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation on a matter of public safety.

If, at any time, you would like to correct the personal information we have about you or if you would like to change your preferences for contacts from us, you can let us know by contacting us at the postal or email address listed below.
