This privacy policy sets forth the privacy practices and policies of San Francisco Parks Alliance (“SFPA”) in connection with the personal information collected through our Www.sfparksalliance.org website (“sfparksalliance.org and the “website”).  This privacy policy describes the information about you that we collect through The website, as well as how that information is used, maintained, and, in some cases, shared.
By using or accessing The website, you assent to this privacy policy.  If you do not agree with the terms of this privacy policy, please do not use or access sfparksalliance.org. 


This privacy policy may be updated or revised by SFPA from time to time without notice to you.  Any changes to the privacy policy will be effective prospectively upon their posting to the website.  If you disagree with any of the terms of this privacy policy, your sole remedy is to discontinue your use of sfparksalliance.org. 

II. Information Collected About You and Our Use of Such Information

Personal Information

For the purposes of this privacy policy, “personal information” is any information that identifies you, would enable someone to contact you, or that describes your relationship with SFPA.
In general, you may visit sfparksalliance.org without revealing any personal information.  However, if you choose to post an event to sfparksalliance.org, you must provide your name and email address.  We store this information indefinitely in a database.
Also, certain sections and features of our website are only available to registered users.  Those sections or features may only be accessed by providing your first and last name and email address, and by entering a unique user ID and password.  We also store this information indefinitely in a database. 

We may use your email address to send you periodic news about SFPA, promotional materials about SFPA, and information about events posted on sfparksalliance.org, unless you inform us that you would like to opt out of receiving such communications by clicking on the “Safe Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of such emails, or emailing us at feedback@sfparksalliance.org.  We may send you certain communications relating to your use of sfparksalliance.org, such as administrative messages and communications regarding your application or account, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them.

Website Usage Information

As with most websites, our website collects and stores usage information that is generated automatically as you navigate through the website.  This aggregate information is collected site-wide, and includes anonymous website statistics.  In addition, when you browse sfparksalliance.org our system automatically collects information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, domain names, referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of these page views, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.  If you are a registered user, we may also collect and store your user name and information about your visit.  This information is used to analyze trends, administer our website, improve the design of our website, track user movement, and otherwise enhance the services we provide.

Our website also employs browser cookies to store user preferences and record session information.  “Cookies” are bits of information that are stored by your browser on your hard drive.  This technology allows for the storage of user preferences and remembers you when you take action on our website.  You can turn off the “cookie” function at your sole expense and responsibility through most standard browsers.

III. When Personal Information Will Be Shared or Disclosed

SFPA will not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others.  However, we may share your personal information with SFPA’s third-party service providers engaged to assist us with creating, supporting, managing or improving the website and/or our services, as well as third-party service providers engaged to create SFPA’s e-newsletters and other communications.

We also may provide to reputable third-party vendors aggregate statistics about users of the website, including traffic patterns and related site information, but these statistics do not include personal information.

We may disclose personal information we collect from you if required to do so by subpoenas, court orders or other legal processes or in the good faith belief that disclosure is necessary (a) to obey the law or comply with legal process served on us; (b) to protect and defend our rights or property or the rights or property of other users of the website; (c) to act in an emergency to protect the personal safety of users of the website or the public; or (d) if we feel it is necessary to protect our systems, website, business, users or others, including if we believe that your actions violate sfparksalliance.org Terms of Use.

Personal information in our possession may also be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of assets or transition of service to another entity, as well as in the unlikely event of insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which your personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of SFPA.  We cannot guarantee that any entity receiving such information in connection with one of these transactions will comply with all terms of this privacy policy.

IV. Security

We use physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to assist us in preventing unauthorized access, maintaining data accuracy, and correctly using your personal information.  Except as specified in this privacy policy, we limit access to your personal information to the employees, agents, and officers of SFPA who need the information for their jobs.

V. External Links

For your convenience, our website may contain links to other websites, or you may be otherwise referred to other websites, including websites unrelated to SFPA.  This privacy policy does not apply to these linked websites.  If you choose to access a third-party website linked to our website, you do so at your own risk and subject to any terms of service or privacy policy (if any) associated with such third party websites.
