Your privacy is our top concern. We work hard to earn and keep your trust, so we adhere to the following principles to protect your privacy:
- We will never rent or sell your personally identifiable information to third parties for marketing purposes
- We will never share your contact information with another user, without your consent.
- Any sensitive information that you provide will be secured
In order to become an Earth Promise member, you must first create an account on this web site. To create an account you are required to provide the following contact information: name, email address, country, state, ZIP/postal code, and choose a username and password. Once a member, you may provide additional information on the site. Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration is entirely optional
Information about your Contacts
In order to invite others to connect with you directly in Earth Promise, you will enter their names and email addresses. This information will be used by Earth Promise to send your invitation including a message that you write. The names and email addresses of people that you invite will be used only to send your invitation and reminders.
You may also choose to manually enter or upload data about your contacts into the private "My Contacts" section of our web site. All information entered there will only be viewable by you and will not be searchable by others in the Earth Promise network without your permission.
Cookies & Log Files:
One type of cookie, known as a "persistent" cookie, is set once you’ve logged in to your Earth Promise account. The next time you visit the Earth Promise web site, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing user so you will not need to log in before using the service. In order to access or change any of your private information (like a credit card number), however, you must log in securely again with your password even if your computer contains your persistent cookie. Additionally, if you log out of the Earth Promise site you will need to re-enter your password the next time you visit in order to log in to your account. Another type of cookie, called a "session" cookie, is used to identify a particular visit to the Earth Promise site. Session cookies expire after a short time or when you close your web browser.
Due to communications standards on the Internet, when you visit the Earth Promise web site we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came to the Earth Promise web site and the site to which you go when you leave the Earth Promise web site. We also receive the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, as well as the name of your ISP. This information is used to analyze overall trends to help us improve the Earth Promise service. The linkage between your IP address and your personally identifiable information is never shared with third-parties without your permission or except when required by law.
Earth Promise is an online community and the personally identifiable information you choose to provide on this site is used to help you describe yourself to other users. Other information, that does not personally identify you as an individual, is collected by Earth Promise from the site (such as, by way of example, patterns of utilization) and is exclusively owned by Earth Promise. This information can be utilized by Earth Promise in such manner as Earth Promise, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate.
Earth Promise Communications:
Earth Promise will communicate with you through email and notices posted on this web site. Please be aware that, regardless of your email contact preferences, you will receive certain emails from Earth Promise related to the proper functioning of your account, such as email notices when another user in your network sends you information about a specific promise or opportunity. Earth Promise may send you promotional information unless you have opted out of receiving such information. If you wish to opt-out of receiving promotional emails, please send a request to email@example.com
Sharing Information With Third Parties:
Earth Promise takes the privacy of our users very seriously. We will never sell, rent, or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to any third parties for marketing purposes. We will only share your personally identifiable with third parties to carry out your instructions and to provide specific services.
We may provide aggregated data about the usage of our services to third-parties for such purposes as we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate. We may segment our users by role (i.e. product managers, vice presidents), industry, geographic location, company. If you would like to be excluded from the aggregated research or products based upon aggregated data about our users’ activities on the site, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Communications Between Users:
Many emails you initiate through Earth Promise (for example, an invitation sent to a non-user) will list your email address and name in the header of the message. Emails you initiate may also provide aggregate information about your network, but will never list the people to whom you are directly connected. Other communications that you initiate through the Earth Promise web site, such as a request for contact, will list your name as the initiator but will not include your personal contact information. Your contact information will only be shared with another user if both of you have indicated that you would like to establish contact with each other.
It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information when required by law. We will disclose such information when we have a good-faith belief that it is necessary to comply with a court order, ongoing judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on our company or to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
