Privacy Policy

Personal Contact Information

When you are making a donation, registering for an event, subscribing to our e-newsletter or contacting us, K2 Adventure Travel asks you for personal contact information such as your name, mailing address, phone number and email address. We may use this contact information to provide you with a receipt; to contact you to clarify or obtain information about a donation you made, event you registered for; or to send you additional information about K2 Adventure Travel.

If you make a donation, we may contact you from time to time to offer you an opportunity to make another gift. We will always give you the opportunity to opt-out of future communications from us.

Occasionally, you may also receive communications from one of our sponsored organizations, K2 Adventures Foundation.

Billing and Financial Information

In addition to personal contact information, we ask for billing information, such as your billing address and credit card number, when you make a donation or register for an event. We use secure servers to gather and process your billing information. These secure servers are hosted by our agent, Off Madison Ave. Your billing information is not shared with any other organizations, and your credit card number is not retained once your transaction has been authorized and processed.

Financial Transactions and Security

All financial transactions on our website, specifically donations and registrations, are processed through PayPal, which is TRUSTe certified. All transactions use an encrypted channel, take place on secure servers and occur in real time. No financial data, such as your credit card number, is transferred via a less-secure channel, such as encrypted email, for processing. Moreover, once your transaction has been completed, your credit card number is not retained.

Other Information We Collect

In some instances, we ask for contact information for people other than you including, for example, email addresses of friends you wish to include when registering for an event or trip. The information we collect is used to send notifications or information you requested and/or to inform the recipient of the opportunity to subscribe to receive updates and opportunities to get involved. Such contact information is not shared with any other organizations nor is it added to any mailing list without the recipient’s explicit consent.
