Privacy Policy

The Corporation for Jefferson’s Poplar Forest is committed to protecting your privacy when you visit our web site, shop at our Online Museum Shop and make donations. Poplar Forest does not collect personal information about individuals, such as their names, mailing or e-mail addresses, unless it is knowingly provided by the individual.

Privacy Policy on Disclosure of Information

Poplar Forest will not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. We may compile and provide aggregate statistics about our visitors, donors, customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related site information to third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information. Poplar Forest may release account information when we have a good faith belief that such release is reasonably necessary to comply with the law, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of Poplar Forest, the users of its site, or others.

Credit Card Safety

The Poplar Forest Donation forms and Online Museum Shop checkout pages are hosted on a secure server using industry-standard SSL encryption technology. SSL encrypts, or encodes, your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address as it travels over the internet. Additionally, your credit card number is split and stored in two separate electronic locations to further reduce the chance of identity theft. The two halves are only put together at the time your transaction is processed.
