Use of Information

Internal Use

We will use your personally identifiable information in order to respond to your request, process your contribution, or fulfill your online order. Your credit card information will be temporarily stored on a secured server only for as long as necessary to process your payment.

We may use your information to inform you of events, send you FOWP newsletters, request monetary contributions, and send you promotions and updates about Warner Parks depending on your subscription settings and preferences. Out of respect for your privacy, email recipients may opt out of receiving emails or adjust user profile settings by following the unsubscribe instructions included in the footer of each email.

FOWP may combine the information you provide us online with other personally identifiable information, such as geographical information and purchase history, in order to better serve our visitors. FOWP’s website automatically collects some anonymous “non-personally identifiable” aggregate information, which may include visitors’ browsers (e.g., Internet Explorer or Firefox), operating systems (e.g., Windows or Macintosh), Internet Service Providers, and other similar information. The information collected is used for statistical purposes to monitor how FOWP’s online visitors navigate our website, allowing us to tailor our website to better accommodate our visitors.

External Use

Sharing FOWP’s List of Supporters

FOWP does not rent or sell donor or subscriber lists, nor do we ever share the information we receive from customers making online purchases from the Warner Parks Store. However, we do use industry-standard third-party tools to process transactions and manage subscriber and donor information. These tools, like us, consider your information completely confidential and abide by all privacy and security laws. For a complete list of third-party tools that we use, contact us via email.

Links to Other Websites

Users may find content on FOWP’s website that links to the websites of our partners, sponsors, or other organizations relevant to Warner Parks. FOWP does not control the content or links that appear on these websites. In addition, these websites or services, including their content, links, service details, rules, and fees may change. As metropolitan parks under the jurisdiction of Metro Parks and Recreation, FOWP does not control fees and usage regulations of Percy and Edwin Warner Parks, including reservations and recreation.

Your Options

We recognize that you may wish to limit the ways in which we contact you and use your information. FOWP offers the following options:

Opt Out of Receiving Emails

If you are a registered user, you may review, correct, update, or change your profile including personally identifiable information at any time by emailing, calling 212.310.6600 or following the unsubscribe instructions included in the email message.

Opt Out of Receiving Telephone Calls or Postal Mailings From FOWP

You may contact us at anytime by emailing [email address], or calling [phone] and letting us know that you would not like to be contacted by telephone or mail.

Data Security

FOWP processes credit card information using secure socket layering (SSL) encryption technology, which protects against interception of your information by third parties. SSL is the standard for most browsers and servers and encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name and address so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.


FOWP takes special care to protect the safety and privacy of children, and does not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal data to FOWP. FOWP encourages parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s internet usage and help enforce this privacy policy by instructing children to never provide personal data to FOWP without their permission. In the event FOWP learns they have inadvertently gathered personal information from children under the age of 13, FOWP will take reasonable measures to promptly erase such information from FOWP records.


The FOWP website uses cookies (small files that store information on your computer’s web browser) to enhance user experience on the website. Cookies are used to perform certain functions such as auto-filling forms, delivering content specific to users’ interests and preferences, and analyzing website activity and user behavior on the website. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and delete any cookies you receive.

Changes to Privacy Policy

FOWP reserves the right to modify our policy as needed. A revised policy will apply only to information collected after the date that the new policy is posted.

California Privacy Rights
