The San Francisco Zoo is committed to protecting and respecting the privacy of its online users.
SFZS collects certain information that personally identifies you only when you wish to access certain services and information. These include:
• Purchasing a membership
• Purchasing Zoo admission
• Purchasing a ticket to a fee-based event
• Signing up for an educational program
• When subscribing to Animail, the SFZS e-newsletter
• When making a donation
The Site automatically recognizes visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the internet.) No personal information about you is revealed in this process. The Site may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer.
Disclosure of Information
SFZS will not disclose or share any personal information you provide with any other party without your permission, except if required to do so in accordance with a court order, subpoena, or similar legal order, or state or local law, and in the event such disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of SFZS, its users, and other third parties.
SFZS does not sell its mailing list to any organization or company. From time to time, in an effort to increase SFZS’s membership, SFZS exchanges or sells membership information – limited to names and addresses – with other selected institutions for a one-time use basis (for that institution). If you would like to opt out of these exchanges, please submit a request via our Web Form with your name and membership information and we will remove your information from these lists.
SFZS is committed to protecting children’s privacy. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 14 years of age.
Changes to This Policy
SFZS may occasionally amend this policy. If we make any substantial changes in the way we use personal information, we will announce this to site visitors via a prominent announcement on this page.
