Thank you for visiting the Phoenix Islands Protected Area website. We are pleased to provide you this Privacy Policy to inform you of our practices with respect to the collection and use of information about visitors to our website. By using this site, you consent to the following terms and our Terms of Use Agreement.

1. What Information Do We Collect?

When you visit our website you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our website.

2. Personal Information You Choose to Provide

You may voluntarily provide us personally identifiable information. If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We are committed to the privacy of our visitors. We collect no personal information about you when you visit our Web site unless you choose to provide that information to us through email communication or donation forms.

If cookies are used for this website, they will be used to “remember” settings for individual visitors to the PIPA website. Web server logs are used to collect information about how our website is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited just before and just after our website.

3. How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?

Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of enhancing or modifying our site, administering and expanding our activities or responding to inquiries. Information provided when donations are made is used to convey website updates and news items relating to the Phoenix Islands Protected Area. Such information can be used to notify you about important changes to our website and new developments as well. You may notify us at any time if you do not wish to receive email correspondence by emailing kcstover@phoenixislands.org

Submitting voluntary information constitutes your consent to the use of the information for the stated purpose. When a user clicks the "Submit" button on any of the Web forms found on our site they are indicating voluntary consent to use of the information they submit for the stated purpose. We do not collect or use information for commercial marketing. Financial information from donations is tracked through the New England Aquarium.

4. What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

5. How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?

As you use our website, the site uses its cookies to differentiate you from other users. Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback in order to constantly improve our website. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not generally store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies.

6. Sharing Information with Third Parties

We generally do not share information collected with third parties but reserve the right to do so with related parties in a confidential manner if they are contractually related to the project.

How Do We Protect Your Information?

1. How Do We Secure Information Transmissions?

Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. You should not send private or confidential information to us by email or otherwise in connection with our site.

2. Certain Disclosures

We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the law or comply with legal process served on us or parties affiliated with us; (b) protect and defend our rights and property, our Site, the users of our site, and/or our affiliated parties; and/or (c) act under circumstances to protect the safety of users of the site, us, or third parties.

3. What About Other websites Linked to Our website?

We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our website nor the information or content contained therein. Please remember that when you use a link to go from our website to another website, our Privacy Policy is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link on our website, is subject to that website’s own rules and policies. Please read over those rules and policies before proceeding.
