The Everglades Association (EA) values the privacy of our members and customers. The following principles dictate EA’s use of personal information.
Dissemination of Personal Information
EA does not rent, sell, or share personal information with any outside individual or organization with the exception of the National Park Service for management purposes only. EA will not rent, sell, or share personal information with any other organization without the advance permission of the member or customer, or unless ordered to do so by a court of law. In addition, EA may provide personal information to specific outside services in order to fulfill member or customer requests.
Employee Access and Use of Personal Information
EA employees will have access to personal information only to fulfill services or orders a member or customer has requested, or to conduct appropriate EA business.
EA endorses and uses an “opt-in” method of gathering e-mail addresses from members or customers for association e-mailings, such as association news, new book releases, and information about on-line orders placed by the customer. A member or customer must select that they wish to receive such e-mailings or such communications will not be sent.
To protect personal information, EA uses established security standards for access to this information. However, we cannot guarantee that the information submitted to, maintained on, or transmitted from our systems will be completely secure.
