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.
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
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,

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.
prevent the click-tracking (but likely not the open-tracking).
