Privacy Policy

The Environmental Defense Center (EDC) has long followed a practice of not selling, renting, trading, or otherwise disclosing donor information to any outside party. This is a longstanding practice and official policy of EDC. All information is volunteered by EDC’s visitors through signing up to receive updates via events, mail, electronic mail or making an online donation. The visitor voluntarily submits his or her full name and email address to EDC.

The individual will receive EDC’s regular communications as selected and detailed on the online sign-up form. All credit card and personal profile information provided to EDC through its Internet software partner, Network for Good, is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption using VeriSign as a payment gateway. SSL is a proven coding system that allows a browser to automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before it is sent. If you would like to review your personal information that is collected and/or request corrections, please contact us.

This website may contain several links to other websites not controlled by EDC. We choose our linked partners with great care; however, EDC is not responsible for the privacy practices of any linked site. Please read the privacy policy of each linked website. This privacy policy applies solely to information collected through the EDC website.
Children should always be supervised while online. EDC does not intended to collect personal information from children under the age of 13. So that we may comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we ask that children under the age of 13 not provide any personal information on this website.
