Irvine Ranch Conservancy Website Privacy Policy

This privacy policy applies to information collected online from users of this website. In this policy, you
can learn what kind of information we collect, when and how we might use that information, how we
protect the information, and the choices you have with respect to your personal information.


We collect information about our users in three ways: directly from the user, from our Web server logs
and through cookies. We use the information primarily to provide you with a personalized Internet
experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to
you. We don’t share any of the information you provide with others, unless we say so in this Privacy
Policy, or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.


If you fill out the “contact” form on this website, we will ask you to provide some personal information
(such as e-mail address, name, and phone number). Further, if chat is available through this site, you
may be asked to provide information if you participate in an online chat. Please do not submit any
confidential, proprietary or sensitive personally identifiable information (e.g. Social Security Number;
date of birth; drivers license number; or credit card, bank account or other financial information)
(collectively, “Sensitive Information”). If you submit any Sensitive Information, you do so at your own
risk and we will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission.

Information that you provide to us through the contact form or an online chat will be used so that we
may respond to your inquiry. We may also use information you provide to us to communicate with you
in the future. If you do not wish to receive such communications, you may opt out (unsubscribe) as
described below.


When you visit our website, we may track information about your visit and store that information in
web server logs, which are records of the activities on our sites. The servers automatically capture and
save the information electronically. Examples of the information we may collect include:

your unique Internet protocol address;

the name of your unique Internet service provider;
the town/city, county/state and country from which you access our website;
the kind of browser or computer you use;
the number of links you click within the site;
the date and time of your visit;
the web page from which you arrived to our site;
the pages you viewed on the site; and
certain searches/queries that you conducted via our website(s).
The information we collect in web server logs helps us administer the site, analyze its usage, protect the
website and its content from inappropriate use and improve the user’s experience.


In order to offer and provide a customized and personal service, our websites and applications may use
cookies and similar technologies to store and help track information about you. We use cookies to help
remind us who you are and to help you navigate our sites during your visits. Cookies also can tell us
where visitors go on a website and allow us to save preferences for you so you won’t have to re-enter
them each time you visit. Most Internet browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can use
your browser to either notify you when you receive a cookie or to disable cookies.

If you wish to disable cookies from this site, you can do so using your browser. You should understand
that some features of many sites may not function properly if you don’t accept cookies. For more

We may use services hosted by third parties, including Adobe Site Catalyst, to assist in providing our
services and to help us understand the use of our site by our visitors. These services may collect

information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, including your IP address or cookies. If
these third-party services collect information, they do so anonymously and in the aggregate to provide
information helpful to us such as website trends, without identifying individual visitors.

In addition, we may use services provided by third parties to display relevant content, products,
services, and advertising to you. These third parties may use cookies, web beacons and similar
technologies to collect or receive information from this website and elsewhere on the internet. They
may then use that information to provide measurement services so we can understand your interests
and retarget advertisements based on your previous visits to this website. Please keep in mind that we
do not share your personal information with any third-party advertiser, ad server or ad network.

You may be able to opt-out of the collection and use of information for ad targeting by some third
parties by visiting Please see “Cookies” in the section above for more
information on how you can control the use of cookies on your computer.


Our web services do not alter, change, or respond upon receiving Do Not Track (DNT) requests or signals
in browsers. As described in more detail above, we track user activity using web server logs, cookies and
similar technologies. Information collected in web server logs helps us analyze website usage and
improve the user’s experience. Cookies allow us to offer you a customized experience and present
relevant advertising to you.


We take certain appropriate security measures to help protect your personal information from
accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that
unauthorized persons will always be unable to defeat our security measures. We will not sell, rent, or
lease mailing lists or other user data to others, and we will not make your personal information available
to any unaffiliated parties, except as follows:

to agents, website vendors and/or contractors who may use it on our behalf or in connection with their
relationship with us;


You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. Contact us via the phone number, contact
form or mailing address on our website at any time to:

see what data we have about you, if any;
change/correct any data we have about you;
ask us to delete any data we have about you; and/or

If you have any additional questions or concerns about this privacy policy, please contact us via the
phone number, contact form or mailing address listed on this website. If our information practices
change in a significant way, we will post the policy changes here.
