The Banning Ranch Conservancy (“Banning Ranch Conservancy” or “we”) respects the privacy of our users and is committed to ensuring confidence and trust.  No information provided to us through this website will be sold or rented.  Please review this Privacy Policy, as it describes the type of information we may collect on our website and how that information may be used.


Cookies are small bits of information stored on your computer that help us analyze activity on our website.  We use cookies to improve the traffic on our site and to help tailor our operations to your needs.  The information we gather includes IP addresses in order to determine visits to each page.

Beyond that, the Banning Ranch Conservancy collects no personal information without your knowledge and permission, and we don’t require any personal information to access information on our website.

Online Donations

We use Stripe as our secure online donation service.  Donations of any size are greatly appreciated and require that you provide contact information on the Donate page.  This information is disclosed only to Stripe.  The Conservancy uses it to send an acknowledgment letter of your gift, which may be used for your tax deduction purposes.  We will also alert you to Banning Ranch breaking news, upcoming events and other important updates.

Email Subscription and BRC eAlerts 

BRC eAlerts bring breaking news about Banning Ranch, upcoming event information, action alerts and other important updates to your email inbox.  To receive them, you can subscribe to our email list, which requires only your email address.  First and last name are optional.  If you are receiving eAlerts, you may elect to unsubscribe at any time. The unsubscribe option is available at the bottom of every eAlert we send out.  You can also resubscribe at any time.

Contact Information Updates

Contact information is self-manageable.  If your contact information changes, you may make changes to your account here.  Please follow the instructions in the second paragraph below the form:  Making Changes to Your Account.

Secure Transactions

Your donation information is secure when you donate to the Banning Ranch Conservancy through Stripe.  Stripe protects information with SSL, which utilizes an encryption key coded at the highest commercially available level of security.  Your personal information is stored on Stripe servers, which are physically and electronically secured.  Stripe does not directly connect its firewall-protected servers to the internet, which further protects credit card and bank information.  Stripe uses your credit card information only for the purpose of processing your donation.  We do not disclose this information except as required to process your Stripe donation and we do not store it once your donation has been processed.

The site may contain links to third-party websites that are not owned or controlled by the Banning Ranch Conservancy.  Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the actions or privacy practices of third-party websites accessed from this site.  Please exercise caution and review the privacy statements of other websites you access to ensure that you are satisfied with their privacy policy.
