Nature London Privacy Policy

(Adopted October 16, 2018)

At Nature London we take your privacy seriously. Our privacy policy is defined by the following fundamental principles:

  • We do not ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We do not share your personal information with any other organization except to comply with the law or protect our rights.
  • We do not store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Nature London collects non-personally-identifying information, such as the date and time of each visit, the content viewed, and whether our website was accessed from a referring website. Nature London’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website. This allows us to produce aggregate usage reports for the Nature London Board of Directors who use the information to assess the value of website content and set direction in the development of future content.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Nature London’s website choose to interact with Nature London in ways that require Nature London to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Nature London gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Examples of such interactions include: purchasing a membership, making a donation, signing up for a field trip, etc.

In each case, Nature London collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Nature London. Nature London does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Nature London may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Nature London may monitor the most popular web pages on and may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Nature London does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Nature London discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its volunteers who (1) need to know that information in order to process it on Nature London’s behalf or to provide services available at Nature London’s website, and (2) who have agreed not to disclose it to others. Nature London will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

Other than to its volunteers, as described above, Nature London discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request, or when Nature London believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Nature London, third parties or the public at large.

Nature London takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
