The San Juan Island Trails Committee (SJITC), a sub-committee of the San Juan Island Park and Recreation District, firmly respects your privacy and will attempt to handle the personal information provided by visitors to this website in a responsible manner.  The SJITC makes every effort to ensure the secure collection and transmission of sensitive user information consistent with the laws governing public entities in the State of Washington.

Browsing our website

You can browse www.sanjuanislandtrails.org subject to our website Terms of Service, without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. The only information we may collect from an ordinary web site visit (one that does not involve a form submission) is your IP address, the pages you view and the date and time you view them. We may use this information to measure site activity in order to improve the usefulness of our website to our visitors.

Collection of personally identifiable information

Visitors must register in order to use certain features of our website, such as our Comments Section. Such use is voluntary and must be initiated by the visitor.   During registration, a visitor may be required to provide contact information such as name, email address, and zip code. We use this information to verify the authenticity of your email.

When a visitor asks us to provide specific information or a service, we request information that enables us to respond to the visitor. This information could include contact information (such as name, mailing address, and email address) and, if applicable, financial, payment, or billing information.

The SJITC may gather email addresses and other personally identifiable data about visitors when such data is voluntarily submitted.    For example, our site may use submission forms for visitors to sign up for trail work or events; request information, services, or products; or to become a member. Email addresses from the submission form will be used only for the purpose of contacting you about the particular work party, event, online order or other interaction. You will receive unrelated emails only if you have specifically opted-in to one of our mailing lists for that purpose. Your mailing address may be used to contact you about opportunities regarding the SJITC that we feel may be of interest to you.

Financial information is only used to bill visitors in connection with their orders. SJITC cannot insure against invasion by security breakers in any manner or the unauthorized use of misappropriated or stolen data.
