Privacy Policy & Terms

What This Privacy Policy Covers

This policy covers how The Painted Turtle, a California nonprofit corporation (the “Camp”), treats personal information that the Camp collects and receives, including information related to your use of the Camp’s Web site and personal information collected from our Web site. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, e-mail address, personal background, or phone number.

We have created this statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. We do not collect personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. This policy is your guide to how we will handle information we learn about you from your visit to our Web site.

Reading or Downloading

We collect and store only the following information about you: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account, or princeton.edu if you are connecting from Princeton University’s domain), the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked to our site. We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, and to help us make our site more useful to visitors.

Sending us an Email

You also may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an electronic mail message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a Web form that provides us this information. We use personally identifying information from e-mail primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your e-mail to other employees who are better able to answer your questions. We may also use your e-mail to contact you in the future about our programs that may be of interest. We want to be very clear: We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. Except as might be required by law, we do not share any information we receive with any outside parties. If you sign up for one of our e-mail lists, we will only send you the kinds of information you have requested. We won’t share your name or e-mail address with any outside parties.

Children and Privacy

For children who visit our site, special rules apply. We do not request personal information about children, such as first and last name or street address and city. When children send an e-mail to us, their online contact information (e-mail address) is not used to re-contact them and is not maintained in a retrievable form. The Camp does not knowingly solicit data from children, and we do not knowingly market to children. If you are a minor, you can use the information offered on our Web site only in conjunction with a parent or legal guardian.

Use of Links

Throughout our web pages, we provide links to other servers which may contain information of interest to our readers. We take no responsibility for, and exercise no control over, the organizations, views, or accuracy of the information contained on other servers. Creating a text link from your Web site to our site does not require permission. If you have a link you’d like us to consider adding to our Web site, please send an email to info@thepaintedturtle.org with the subject “Link request.”

If you would like to publish information that you find on our Web site, please send your request to info@thepaintedturtle.org. Where text or images are posted on our site with the permission of the original copyright holder, a copyright statement appears at the bottom of the page.

In the event that The Painted Turtle decides to alter its privacy policy, the changes will be added directly to this statement. We will, however, always use information in accordance with the version of the privacy policy under which it was originally collected.
