How We Protect Information

We use commercially reasonable procedures to protect the personal information that we collect from you against loss, theft and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We have developed and implemented and continue to maintain and monitor a written information security program applicable to all records containing personal information. This security program is appropriate to the size, scope and type of our business, the resources available to us, the amount of stored data, and the need for security and confidentiality of the personal information we store. No security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases or the security during transmission to us of the information you supply over the Internet. You can help us by taking precautions to protect your personal information when you are on the Internet and only disclose information that you want made public. Change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers and make sure to use a secure web browser.

For the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, personal information may be transferred to, processed, stored and accessed by us, our affiliates and third parties in the United States and in other jurisdictions where we or they operate. Courts and other authorities in these jurisdictions may, in certain circumstances, be entitled to access your personal information. By using the website, you consent to this transfer, processing, storage and access of your personal information in and/or outside of the jurisdiction in which you reside.

Unsubscribe & Right to Be Forgotten

The Site may provide you the opportunity to opt-in to receive communications from us. That information is stored indefinitely unless you opt out. You always have the right to be forgotten by removing your name from any e-mail list in order to discontinue any future communications. To do so, you can click the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each email we send you, or send us an email at the email address provided below. We will remove you from the email list and delete all records of your data.

Third Party Links

At times we include links to other websites on this Site and in our digital issues. These third party sites may request information from you. Be advised that in such instances, the collection and use of your personally identifiable information will be governed by the Privacy Policy in effect on that third party site. We do not control the privacy statements, information, and links that may appear on other sites. You are responsible for reviewing the privacy statements of third party sites before providing any of them with any information. We are not responsible for what happens to your data after you visit third party sites (PayPal, Shopify, etc).

Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract, nor is intended for, anyone under 13.

How To Contact Us

Should you have other questions or concerns about these privacy policies, or to have any of your personally identifiable information deleted, please email editor@wildfirecommunity.org with the details of your request. At this time, we only have the ability to receive and send English-language communications.

Due to the nature of backups and logs, deleted data may persist in backups and logs until they are deleted by the service provider.

WILDFIRE reserves the right to change this policy at any time. Please check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of WILDFIRE following the posting of changes to this policy will mean you accept those changes.
