Privacy Policy

OneSky’s Privacy Policy

The following policy was created for OneSky and its website onesky.org in order to protect the privacy of our online and offline donors and the visitors to this website. OneSky knows you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. By visiting https://www.onesky.org, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy Notice.

Protecting the Privacy of our Online and Offline Donors

OneSky will not share or sell any information about our donors that we collect online, by telephone/fax, through direct mail, or in person. OneSky does not send mailings on behalf of any other organization. You may opt out of our online and offline mailings any time by contacting us:

Information we collect online


We use “cookies” (a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters we store for an extended period of time on your computer, mobile phone, or other device) to make OneSky easier to use. A “cookie” is a small information file that a web browser places on the hard drive of a computer when users visit a website. Cookies cannot damage user files, nor can they read information from a user’s hard drive.

Cookies allow OneSky to gather anonymous audience data through Google Analytics such as age, gender, and interests. Cookies allow websites to “remember” users’ activities on a website as well as the number of users’ visits to a site. You may use Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs for the web. At onesky.org, cookies are used to determine the number of unique visitors to our website over a given period and to recognize a browser so we can help users access information.

Users can disable cookies on their computer by indicating this in the preferences or options menus of their browsers. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. While you can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, in some cases doing so will impact your ability to use onesky.org.

Log data

Log data collected on web servers within onesky.org’s control supply us with aggregate information about the number of visits to different pages on our site. We use such aggregate information to improve access to our content, including factoring in our visitors’ browsers and operating system types to make our content available to as many people as possible. We do not link log data collected to personal information.

Information you provide online


OneSky follows the FTC guidelines for compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). OneSky does not knowingly solicit or collect personally identifiable information online from children under the age of 13.

If you are under age 13, please do not attempt to provide any personal information about yourself to us, including your name, telephone number or email address.  If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible and take all reasonable measures to delete such information from our databases. If you believe that we might have any information from a child under age 13, please contact us directly at contact@onesky.org.

Parental participation

We strongly recommend that minors 13 years of age or older ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet, and we encourage parents to teach their children about safe Internet use practices.

How we use your online information

We use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect, such as browser and operating system, to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience.

When you provide your email address to our mailing list, we may send you messages, such as newsletters.  If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out at any time by contacting us at contact@onesky.org or clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link located at the bottom on each mailing.

How we share your information

Information about our visitors is an important part of our mission, and we never sell or rent it to others. We share visitor or customer account information only with services that help us manage our operations, as described below:

  • Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include: delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, and processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
  • Protection of OneSky and others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; or protect the rights, property, or safety of OneSky, onesky.org users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
  • With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
  • If you have concerns regarding our privacy policy or wish to discuss the sharing of your information, please contact us at contact@onesky.org

How we protect your information

We work to protect the security of your credit card information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We do not reveal your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.


When you click on links on onesky.org, you may leave our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites, and we encourage you to read their privacy statements. We do not guarantee that they will follow our rules. If you find an application or website that violates our rules, you should report the violation to us and we will take action as necessary.

Privacy Policy Updates/Revisions

If you choose to visit onesky.org, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the state of California. If you have any concern about privacy at onesky.org, please send us a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it.  Because our operations change constantly, this Notice may change as well; any information we gather is subject to the Privacy Notice in effect at the time of use. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes.
