Internet Protocol Address
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is the number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We collect an IP address from all visitors to our website. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our website, analyze usage trends, and gather broad demographic information.
Subscribing to Alerts and E-newsletters
To sign up for e-newsletters you are only required to provide us with your full name and email address.
There are occasions when we will ask for additional information, such as professional specialties, title, or your organizational affiliation. We do this to better understand and respond to your needs, and to provide you with information on our programs that may be valuable to you.
Mail Sent to Us Containing Personal Information
You may decide to send SCLT personally identifying information. For example, in an email message requesting information about your membership. We will use this information to determine how to respond to you and we may add your information to our database. It is important to note that we legally cannot remove a record from our database if that record contains information containing donations. At your request, the record may be marked to receive no other mailings. You may contact us to make changes to your personal information.

Security of Your Information
We will take appropriate steps to protect the security of your personal information. We will also protect your personal information in storage. We have implemented security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from: unauthorized access; improper use or disclosure; unauthorized modification; and unlawful destruction or accidental loss. All our employees who have access to, and are associated with processing personal data, are obliged to respect the confidentiality of our visitor’s personal data.
All sensitive information (such as your credit card information) provided to the SCLT through our website is transmitted either to us or to our credit card processor using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. No credit card information is stored on our site.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can ever be 100% secure. While we fully strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or completely guarantee the security of such information.
The VeriSign Secure Site Badge
The globally recognized VeriSign Secure Site Program allows you to learn more about the websites that you visit before you submit any confidential information. SCLT’s investment in this advanced technology ensures that the web page you are visiting is authentic, secure and that any data or information you submit will be protected by 128-bit SSL encryption. Whenever you see the VeriSign Secure Site badge on our websites, you can personally verify that the web page in question is both secure and administered by SCLT. You may, therefore, submit personally identifiable information and/or sensitive data (such as credit card numbers) with the assurance that:
- SCLT’s website has a VeriSign Secure Server ID for purposes of connecting with our online fundraising software to make donations; and,
- The website legitimately runs under the auspices of Sheridan Community Land Trust; and,
- All information sent to the website, if in an SSL session, is encrypted, protecting against disclosure to third parties.
Links to Third Party Sites
We provide links to third party sites. Since we do not control those websites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these third-party sites.
‘Cookies’ are small files sent from a web server to your computer through your browser program. There are two types of cookies: non-persistent and persistent cookies.
A non-persistent cookie enables a website to temporarily keep information on your computer as you travel from one page to another on our site. This cookie is automatically deleted from your machine when you close your browser. Because these cookies are necessary to provide some functions, failure to allow such cookies will make our website unavailable to you.
A persistent cookie is kept even when you close your browser. You can manually delete these cookies using commands specific to your browser and computer system. These cookies store information that would generally not change from session to session. They also contain information that would need to be reentered by you each time you visit the website. For example, a common use of persistent cookies is to allow a registered site visitor to enter the site without having to specify their user-id and password.
