Personal Information Collected from the DonateNow System
The Tuolumne River Trust has partnered with Groundspring.org to facilitate our online credit card transactions. When you make a donation to the Tuolumne River Trust using the Groundspring.org DonateNow button, Groundspring.org collects a variety of personal information about you in order to properly process your donation. This personal information may include: name, address, phone, email address, "acknowledgement" or "in memory of" information, and donation amount. Groundspring.org shares this information with the Tuolumne River Trust. This way the Trust can enter you into our database of supporters.
You also have the option to make your donation anonymously. If you choose this option, Groundspring.org will not share any of your contact information with the Tuolumne River Trust.
Groundspring.org collects credit card information from the Tuolumne River Trustís DonateNow system so that Groundspring.org can process donations. This information is maintained on a secure server for internal processes only. Groundspring.org also uses a credit card processing company to process donations. This company does not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
The Tuolumne River Trust provides links to other websites as a resource for members and the public who are interested in additional information. We encourage you to view their privacy policies as well. Any information you share with these websites is subject to their policies and practices and is independent of the Tuolumne River Trust.
