Privacy Statement

This Privacy Statement discloses the information privacy practices for the Nova Scotia Nature Trust. If you have further questions, we invite you to contact us.

In general, you can visit the Nature Trust website without telling us who you are and without revealing any information about yourself. Nova Scotia Nature Trust may collect anonymous information such as web page traffic from visits to our website. This information is in an aggregate and anonymous form. The Nova Scotia Nature Trust does not use cookies to identify repeat users.

The Nova Scotia Nature Trust does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. Depending on what you request, such voluntary information may include your email address, first name and/or last name.

When providing personal information (when subscribing to our mailing list, for example) you have automatically given the Nova Scotia Nature Trust consent to use that information for the purpose stated within that request. Only the minimum amount of information required will be collected from you and it will be used solely for that stated purpose. We will not ask you for information that is not needed to fulfill your request or ask for information without a stated explanation.

In our commitment to keeping your information confidential we will not sell, rent or lease our mailing list to third parties, and we will not provide your personal information to any third party individuals or companies without your permission, unless required to do so (see below). Your personally identifiable information is never disclosed beyond the organization without your consent and it is shared internally only when it is required as part of the performance of the duties of the individual seeking access.

The Nova Scotia Nature Trust may be obligated to release personal information when we believe, in good faith, that such a release is reasonably necessary to comply with the law, or protect the rights, property, or safety of the Nova Scotia Nature Trust, our visitors or others.

The Nova Scotia Nature Trust will use reasonable efforts to allow you to update or correct previously submitted personal information that you state to be erroneous. Upon your request, the Nova Scotia Nature Trust will functionally delete your information from its databases. However, it may be impossible to delete your entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.

The Nova Scotia Nature Trust is committed to protecting your personal information and has taken measures to avoid the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. The appropriate physical, technical and administrative measures have been put into place to protect the quality and integrity of your personally identifiable information.
