Privacy Policy

This website is coordinated by The Wilderness Society on behalf of the National Landscape Conservation System Coalition (the NLCS Coalition). The Wilderness Society and the NLCS Coalition believe strongly in your right to privacy. To protect that right, we follow these practices.

Email Addresses

Email addresses are collected from willing subscribers to the weekly WildAlert email publication. The WildAlerts email list is a service of The Wilderness Society for the NLCS Coalition. Subscribers receive news about America's national lands, including the National Landscape Conservation System. These news items may be generated by The Wilderness Society and/or other members of the NLCS Coalition. We use email addresses only to distribute WildAlert.

Email addresses and other information gathered on the subscribe form will not be given, sold or exchanged. Communications with subscribers will come only through WildAlerts.

Registered subscribers can remove their names from our subscriber list at any time by following instructions included at the bottom of each email message.

Email addresses collected using any other forms on the site are used to provide the service described on that page. Any use of email addresses that may differ from that described here will be fully disclosed on the form. The Wilderness Society and the NLCS Coalition will not share, rent, sell or loan email addresses to anyone.
