Privacy Statement

This website is owned and operated by the American Tree Farm System a program of the American Forest Foundation (AFF). Our intention is to provide useful information about our Foundation and its programs. AFF is committed to ensuring the privacy of our visitors' personal information. Therefore, we will not sell or share any information obtained about our visitors with third party organizations or businesses, except to provide information requested by the visitor.

ATFS/AFF protects the confidentiality of its donors. We never sell information about our contributors. We honor all requests by donors who wish to remain anonymous, and except for donor acknowledgement, share information about other contributors only and unless they expressly require, request or approve that we do so. If you would like to review personal information collected and request corrections, please contact us at the American Forest Foundation, 2000 M Street, NW Suite 550, Washington, DC 20036.

This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

When you place an order or offer a donation we will need to know your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card number and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order. This information is offered through a secure Internet connection.

If you use our Information Request form or other email correspondence we may ask for your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number. This allows us to process your request and provide you with the most complete information via the quickest method. Media contact information will be used to disseminate news and information about AFF and its programs.

From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys or via media contact forms is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name, email or mailing address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Survey information will be used for purposes of interpreting survey research results, monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

We encourage our website visitors to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
