Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as is necessary to fulfill your request (examples: to submit a donation, to make a reservation for a hike or work trip, to pay membership dues or to purchase items through our Trail Store).
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email at Communications@bmtamail.org:
- See what data we have about you, if any.
- Change / correct any data we have about you.
- Have us delete any data we have about you.
- Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as contact information), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only three volunteers who need the information to perform a specific job (for example: updating membership information or processing donations) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers / servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
