PPA is pleased to receive e-mails from you. Should you choose to send an e-mail to PPA, your message and e-mail address will be forwarded to the appropriate department within PPA and we will save your e-mail as part of our permanent records.

Use of Information

Your credit card information will be temporarily stored on a secured server only for as long as necessary to process your payment, or in the case of phone or print contributions, maintained only long enough to process and verify payment, then destroyed.

Out of respect for your privacy, e-mail recipients may opt out of receiving e-mails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in the e-mail message, e-mailing, or calling 718-965-8965.

From time to time, PPA will provide you with the opportunity to participate in surveys. Unless we inform you otherwise, your voluntary participation in these surveys is completely anonymous. We use the information gathered from the surveys to improve the experience of visitors to Prospect Park and PPA’s website.

PPA may combine the information you provide us online with other personally identifiable information in order to better serve our visitors.

PPA’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 PPA’s online visitors navigate our website, allowing us to tailor our website to better accommodate our visitors.

External Use

Third Party Vendors
PPA may engage third-party vendors in order to help us better service our visitors and customers. PPA requires its vendors by contract to maintain the confidentiality and security of PPA information to which they are provided access and restricts the vendors from using the information in any way not expressly authorized by PPA. In cases when users leave PPA’s website to visit one of its vendor’s websites, users are encouraged to become familiar with the privacy statement of each website they visit.

Sharing PPA’s List of Supporters
PPA may, on occasion, share the name and the mailing or email address of members and supporters with other like-minded organizations. Exchanging our list with other reputable charitable organizations is the most cost effective way to find new supporters. As part of PPA’s exchange policy, other organizations will have access to a shared list for a limited time and will not have continued access to PPA’s list unless an individual voluntarily chooses to respond to their initial mailing. If you prefer not to have your name and address shared in this way, you may request to have your information removed from a shared list at any time by contacting You will also have regular opportunities to opt-out by checking the appropriate box or following the instructions located on solicitation materials.
