Donor Privacy Policy

Protecting your information is a mark of excellence.

EarthShare of Texas uses reasonable commercial efforts to avoid disclosure of information which is confidential, privileged or nonpublic other than in accordance with this privacy policy.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

EarthShare of Texas gathers personally identifiable data when voluntarily submitted by a user, which may include: name, addresses, zip codes, e-mail addresses, donor choice information, etc. This information is used solely by EarthShare of Texas or other parties to the transaction for the purpose of executing the transaction, to improve your experience with us, and for the internal business purposes of EarthShare of Texas.

EarthShare of Texas will not sell, trade, or share your donor information that we collect either online or offline with anyone unless you specifically request that we do so. (For example, giving Tree Folks your name and address because you requested an acknowledgement.)

EarthShare of Texas will collect payment information, billing address, and other information necessary to process a donation.

EarthShare of Texas will only share your information in our reasonable discretion to investigate or prevent fraud, illegal activity, or any misuse of our website as well as to comply with any legal process served on us.

EarthShare of Texas may use the donor information to protect against potential fraud. We may verify with third parties the information collected in the course of processing a gift, event registration, or other donation. If you use a credit or debit card, we may use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your card information and address matches the information that you supplied to us and that the card being used has not been reported lost or stolen.

Data Protection/Security

EarthShare of Texas has put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure all information we collect. EarthShare of Texas makes no warranties as to the security of your data communications, or that third parties will not gain unauthorized access to or monitor your computer(s) or online communications.
