Your privacy is critically important to us at Communities of Rooted Brilliance (CRB). We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights. We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of one of our programs.
CRB collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. CRB’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how CRB’s visitors use its website. From time to time, CRB may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
CRB also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on articles published. CRB only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to CRB’s websites choose to interact with CRB in ways that require CRB to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that CRB gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our newsletter at CRB.org to provide a name and email address.
Those who donate to CRB are sometimes asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, CRB collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with CRB. CRB does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
CRB may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, CRB may monitor the most popular pages and articles on the CRB.org site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spammers. CRB may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, CRB does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Information
CRB discloses potentially personally-identifying, and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that
(i) need to know that information in order to process it on CRB’s behalf or to provide professional services
(ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.
Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, CRB discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when CRB believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of CRB, third parties or the public at large.
CRB sends a newsletter and occasional nonprofit updates that we believe will be useful to individuals that subscribe to our website or social media accounts. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every email. We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties.
