Privacy Policy

Maryland Raptor Conservation Center, Inc. (MRCC) places a high priority on protecting your privacy. This privacy policy was created in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to the privacy of our website users. This policy explains what types of information is collected by MRCC’s website, www.marylandraptorcenter.org, and how this information is used.

What Personally Identifiable Information is Collected

Individuals that sign up to receive MRCC e-communications voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We may use this information for specific, limited purposes. You may always "opt out," either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages.

IP addresses

MRCC uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our website, and for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic, including geographic location.


www.marylandraptorcenter.org uses cookies to automatically help provide better services. They remind us who you are and your preferences for our website based on what you've done and told us before. Cookies let us take you to the information and features you're particularly interested in. They also let us track your usage of this website, so we know which parts of our sites are most popular. You can reject cookies or cancel them by instructing your Web browser accordingly.

How Your Information May Be Used

We use your personal information to provide you with personalized service; to send email alerts to you; to contact you; to answer your requests; etc. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from us. We may use your information to track visitors of our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users' needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties, potentially including sponsors or advertisers. MRRI may retain the details of purchases, donations, and other transactions made with us or the partners affiliated with our website, and we may use this information to contact you, to provide a donation receipt, and to solicit future donations.

How Your Personal Information is Disclosed

It is MRCC’s policy not to disclose, sell or rent your Personal Information to any individual, business, government entity or outside parties except: (i) to provide products or services you've requested through us; (ii) in response to a validly-issued subpoena, court order, or other legal process; (iii) when necessary to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal action; or (v) where you request us to do so.

From time to time, MRCC may use return email addresses to answer the email we receive from you. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose. Your Personal Information will not be collected for use that is in violation of the law, or unrelated to that discussed in this Policy, unless you are also provided an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Email Privacy

MRCC does not provide, sell, or rent email addresses to anyone outside the organization.


All user account pages are protected with Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") encryption.

Privacy Policy Scope

This Policy does not apply to companies that MRCC does not own or control, or to individuals that are not under MRCC’s supervisory control.

Voluntary Service

MRCC is a volunteer-served organization. While MRCC makes reasonable efforts to ensure that our volunteers will behave as we expect and conform to our policies, MRCC cannot guarantee nor be responsible for the behavior of volunteers.

Information Security
