RRC Respects your Right to Privacy

This document describes our privacy policy for transactions conducted via email, postal mail and through our website. Any changes to this policy will be posted at this location. We encourage you to read the entire policy.

Web Site

This web site website is owned and maintained by the Los Angeles River Revitalization Corporation (RRC), a non-profit California corporation with headquarters in Los Angeles. Most of our web site is accessible without entering any personal information. However, some activities, such as all financial transactions for our Store, require the submission of personal and/or financial information. Other activities may require the collection of your e-mail address, such as signing up for our newsletter or contacting us for further about projects, jobs or such, donating to us, making requests, or simply asking a question. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. We ask for personal information so that we can fulfill your request and return your message. This information is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies. RRC does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us.

Personal information, financial information and e-mail addresses collected via our web site are governed by the relevant parts of this privacy policy. By visiting this web site you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy & Legal Notice.


We are committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. We do not sell, rent, or lease our subscription lists to third parties. However, we may trade email information with organizations of a similar interest, including non-profits. Please contact us at any time if you wish your personal information to not be included in any trade.

We will use your e-mail address to communicate RRC information. RRC will maintain the information you send via e-mail in accordance with applicable federal law. If you have registered to receive e-mail communications from us and later change your mind, you may contact us to have your name removed from our distribution lists. Please contact us at any time if you wish your e-mail address to be excluded from any future email mailings.

Financial Information

All submitted financial information is used only to complete the specified transactions in our Store.  Our merchandise partner, Zazzle, handles all the ordering and fulfillment, including the collection of all financial information. Please see their privacy policy for details on how they protect information that shoppers on our website provide.

Data Security

Personally identifiable information is stored on our server and is not publicly accessible. Further, personally identifiable information is only accessed by RRC personnel on a "need to know" basis. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Anonymous information is collected for every visitor to this site. This includes pages viewed, date and time, and browser type. IP numbers are not stored, but are temporarily used to determine domain type and in some cases, geographic region. We do not make any association between this information and a visitor's identity. When you visit our website, our servers make a log of basic information corresponding to the sites and pages you have visited. This information is stored primarily to track the effectiveness of our website and individual sections and pages within them.
