FieldTripFactory.Org Logo

FieldTripFactory.Org is a nonprofit, public charity organization 501(c)(3) dedicated to unleashing the power of experiential learning for all ages.

We do not sell or share your personal data with 3rd parties.

We do need to capture and send personal data as part of transactional workflows supporting our booking and notifications processes.

When visitors provide comments/form data with permission for use on our website, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to subservices we utilize in our infrastructure to see if it is in use. Such subservices may or may not have their own privacy policies, but again, we do not knowingly share or sell your data to 3rd parties.

If you upload images to our website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

FTF captures/utilizes transactional data/notifications including bookings, changes, cancellations, reminders, and post-experience follow-up emails and/or sms/text (sms/text opt-in permission required). By default, we will use your transactional data to assist us in base promotions (e.g. letting you know of new/remind you of experiential opportunities in your area or that are online/on-demand).  Simply unsubscribe from such marketing emails/notifications or contact us if you need assistance in unsubscribing from emails promoting available programs.

Please add bookings at FieldTripFactory.Org as a whitelist domain/sender in your email platform to ensure deliverability of vital transactional notifications. Actually, it would be best if you just added our entire domain of: * |* to ensure transactional data is not trapped in spam or local filters set by you or your organization.

SMS/Text notifications are all transactional and are OPT-IN during the booking process via the booking form or via verbal direction to our call center.  We will not market to you via SMS/Text channels.  You may also unsubscribe from previously opt-in sms/txt messages by replying STOP.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices along with carrying vital information in support of creating/editing bookings. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed depending on your local browser settings.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email to ensure deliverability by our transactional systems (not marketing).

Otherwise, FieldTripFactory.Org does not actively share or sell your personal data.  If somehow that policy changes, we will/would notify you to opt-in or decline such actions based on your discretion.

How long we retain your data

If you make a booking, leave a comment, fill out a form, etc…. such transactional data and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up automatically instead of holding data in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. You may request a deletion of such data at any time if you do not directly delete/edit the data yourself.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us about your bookings. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Visitor comments/submitted data may be checked through an automated spam detection service that does not track or identify such data/metadata on a personal level.

If you have read this far

FieldTripFactory.Org is a non-profit organization and we are committed to doing the “right thing” in all circumstances. So if you have a question or a concern, please contact us. We’ll be more than willing to ensure you feel your experience and your data is safe and utilized in support of experiential experiences of your choice. Thanks for your patience and support.
