Information We Collect
Casey Trees only collects information and has access to information that users voluntarily give via email or other direct contact. We gather contact information when you contribute to Casey Trees online or via mail, request information at an event, purchase merchandise, sign-up for our e-newsletter, complete a survey or contest, or contact us by email and/or phone. We use this information to send you updates, action alerts, press releases, information about Casey Trees programs, events and activities, local volunteer opportunities, and membership and renewal appeals.
Casey Trees also uses information gathered via the Casey Trees website to improve our web-based services. We use log-in information, cookies, data caches, and other similar technologies to identify your browser or device and identify repeat visitors, in order to improve access to our website and enhance overall user experience. Casey Trees periodically performs statistical analyses of aggregate user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of various areas on our website and uses such information to improve the website and better serve our users.
Casey Trees is the sole owner of all personally identifiable information it collects. We will not sell or rent your information to anyone. We will never share your personal information with any third party outside of our organization other than as necessary to fulfill specific requests, actions, or programs requirements. This can relate to Casey Trees activities for external processing (e.g. send posted mail, ship an order, process credit cards transactions, reserve event space, etc.) or relate to specific programs where it is necessary to share your information with partners or other third parties in order to fulfill requests you have made of Casey Trees (e.g. fulfill a tree planting request, register for an event sponsored by a third party, etc.). We do not authorize any third party to retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond fulfilling specific Casey Trees operational activities.
We take precautions to protect your personal information, both online and offline. Only Casey Trees employees who need information to perform a specific job (e.g. billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page (as evident on all our donation and transaction pages).
