General Browsing Information

If you visit our site to read or download information, we may collect and store general information in order to analyze trends, gather broad demographic information, and monitor site traffic patterns that can help us further develop and improve the design and usefulness of our site.


Your privacy is important to us. Therefore, we will keep your email address and phone number strictly confidential. Periodically, we may share your name and mailing address with our family of business partners to market their services to you. If you prefer us not to share this information, you must notify us in writing. Outside of our family of business partners, we will not share your name or address with anyone.

Personally Identifiable Information

We will explicitly notify you before we collect any personally identifiable information about you (e.g.: your name, email address, contact information, credit card number, etc.) and will not collect any information unless you choose to provide it to us. This information may be shared within our organization for the purposes of responding to any comments or questions you submit and/or providing follow-up information about our organization. In addition, Fair Hill Nature Center does not sell, trade or share information about its members, donors, and volunteers without the special permission/decision of the Board of Directors. From time to time we may share this information with other organizations that our Board deems to be of interest/benefit to you.

Other Security Measures

We want to provide our members and supporters with a secure experience whether they are ordering memberships, making a donation, or purchasing nature education merchandise. Our technical security measures include using a service that provides industry standard encryption to secure the transfer of data between your browser and our server. Although we will use all reasonable means to safeguard the privacy of your personal information, transmissions made via the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure.

Online Forms

When our forms ask users to enter sensitive information such as credit card number, that information is encrypted and is protected with the best standard method in the industry. We maintain records of all contributions to Fair Hill Nature Center. Personal information is private and confidential and is stored in a secure location accessible only by authorized staff.

Youth Protection

FHNC places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for its youth participants and guests (under age 18). To maintain such an environment, we have adopted the following policy for staff, volunteers and long-term contractors.

Fair Hill Nature Center reserves the right to use any pictures of program participants to promote our programs unless otherwise notified in writing.
