Privacy Policy

Conservation Foundation Privacy Policy

Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast is committed to protecting the privacy of our guests, our donors, and members of our conservation community. Whether you register at an event, sign up to receive communications from us online, or make a donation online, through the mail, or in person, we protect your information in a variety of ways. We do not buy, sell, or exchange your personal information with any organization—public, private, or nonprofit.

We use industry standard safeguards to protect your information. Many donors use credit cards for donations. We protect the security of credit card transactions using a number of measures such as encryption, access controls, network firewalls, and physical security. These measures make it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept the credit card information you send to us. When we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, those companies also use encryption and other security measures.
