Privacy Policy

The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo website (www.alabamagulfcoastzoo.org) and all related domains directed to this site are owned, operated and maintained by the Zoo Foundation, Inc. The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of our web users. Except as discussed herein and when specifically and knowingly provided by the user, the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo collects no personally identifying information about individuals.

The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo only collects following types of personally identifying and non-personal information which is necessary for our legitimate business purposes, and the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo will maintain appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of the information. The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo is the sole owner of the information collected on our website.

The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo requests information from the user on our order and contribution forms. A user must provide contact information (such as name, email and billing address) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date). This information is securely sent to third party vendors with whom the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo has contracts to process payments and/or to fill customers' orders. The third party vendors may not use users' personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. If we have trouble processing an order, the information may also be used to contact the user.

Other than the uses described above, We do not share personal information with anyone other than those who provide support for the internal operations of the Web site and our agents (e.g., contractors who provide fulfillment services or technical support to the Web site).

We do not knowingly participate in "spamming" activities of any kind.

The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo's website takes precautions to protect users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and off-line. When our order and contributions forms ask users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the encryption software, SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, you will notice that the lock icon on the bottom of the web browser becomes locked. This lock reflects that you are visiting a secure page, as opposed to un-locked icon which can be seen when users are just "surfing".

Users who have provided contact information may occasionally receive e-newsletters and email updates on Zoo activities as well as information on membership, contributions, and promotions.

Our website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites or the policies, content, and practices of other web sites. To the extent you visit a third-party site accessible through this website, we encourage you to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information as those third-party privacy practices govern the collection and use of information provided when visiting those sites. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo's website.
