Privacy & Terms of Use

Information Collection and Use
Friends of Nevada Wilderness (FNW) is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. FNW collects information from our users at several different points on our website. FNW does not collect any personally identifiable information without the knowledge and consent of the user.

Log Files
When our sites are accessed, the only information automatically collected are IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information only for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that FNW is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the FNW websites.

From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the participants of survey results. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site and to provide statistical data to our organization and other stakeholders.

When our website asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the industry standard technology: secure socket layers (SSL). While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just surfing'. To learn more about SSL, follow this link to a Microsoft article.

Notification of Changes
If we change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our privacy policy page so our users may remain aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

Bulk Email
In October 2012 for the first time, FNW began using an email house (vendor) to send our bulk email. Through the vendor, we receive automatic reports that tell if, and at what time the recipient: opens an FNW email, clicks on any link in that email, or opts out from future FNW email messages. FNW may use this information to improve our communications in an effort to attain higher "open rates" and, perhaps, other objectives.

Email recipients can avoid this tracking by:

  • not opening FNW email or by unsubscribing from it, or

  • disabling image viewing (display) in the email AND not clicking on any link in the email.

Also, turning off Google Analytics JavaScript MAY POSSIBLY prevent the click-tracking (but likely not the open-tracking).
