The Trust for Sustainable Forestry websites may contain links to other third party sites that are not governed by this privacy policy.
Although we endeavor to link only to sites with high privacy standards, our Privacy Policy will no longer apply once you leave our website ("www.sustainableforestry.com"). We are not responsible for privacy policies employed by other third parties or any foreign affiliates, since they would be governed by privacy legislation applicable in their country of residence. We suggest, therefore, that the privacy statements of those sites be examined to learn how personal information may be collected, used and/or disclosed.

At your request we will update your personal information that you have provided to us.

The Trust for Sustainable Forestry will make reasonable efforts to ensure that personal information in our control is accurate and complete. If we collect personal information, we will maintain the information and allow you to update it at any time.
