This website (the “Web Site”) is operated by TheLeap.org (“we”, “us” and/or “our”) and has been created to accomplish our mission of building an economy based on care for the earth and each other, with the help of Web Site visitors (“you”, “your”).
TheLeap.org has a firm commitment to internet privacy.
You can visit most portions of TheLeap.org without telling us who you are and without revealing any personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”). The only information we collect from a normal Web Site visit is information that cannot be used to specifically identify you (“Non-Personal Information”), which usually includes the name of your internet service provider, the browser and type of machine you are using, the website that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time you request them.
TheLeap.org will carefully consider what data we’re collecting and create clear internal guidelines on data collection that match the standards in which we treat our own data.
We will make certain that each supporter (not only in the EU) gives valid, freely given, specific, informed and active consent for all our online actions and engagement to achieve the highest standards of privacy for TheLeap.org’s supporters.
Every time we ask you to take action with us, you not only have the ability to unsubscribe at any time but has the power to permanently and completely delete your supporter profile we’ve gathered to optimize our engagement with you by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or replying to any email we send you.
How We Use the Information
When you opt-in to receiving communications from us, you are consenting to:
- Receiving email updates from Naomi Klein and TheLeap.org including important online and offline calls to action, announcements from our Leap networks, fundraising appeals, and other breaking news and analysis.
- Granting TheLeap.org the ability to collect and use your behavioural and demographic data to better understand what supporters like you need to stay active with us in the struggle to build an economy based on caring for the earth and one another.
We use the Non-Personal Information collected to generate statistics and measure Web Site activity in order to improve our impact in this work, and make our Web Site a stronger tool for our visitors.
Aggregated Personal Information
In an ongoing effort to accomplish our mission and understand Web Site visitors better, TheLeap.org may conduct research on its visitor’s demographics and interests based on the Personal Information and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and TheLeap.org may share this aggregate information with its affiliates and allies. TheLeap.org may also disclose aggregated visitor statistics in order to describe the size, scope, and demographics of its network. This aggregate information does not identify you personally.
TheLeap.org does not rent, share, sell or trade any Personal Information from online or offline donations with any 2nd or 3rd party. In addition, we do not rent, share, sell or trade information about what donations supporters have undertaken on our Web site with any 2nd or 3rd parties.
When We Share the Information
TheLeap.org will not sell your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Information with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
Action and Signup Pages
We do not share the information you’ve given us on Action and Signup pages with unaffiliated groups or individuals without your explicit permission. For petitions, letters to the editor, and surveys you’ve signed or completed, we treat your name, city, province, and comments as public information. We will not make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit it campaign targets specifically noted on the signup page.
Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties
TheLeap.org sometimes hires other companies to perform certain functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases, and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we take precautions to provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
We may disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of TheLeap.org, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Web Site visitors or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
By registering an account/password/event for a “day of action”, we may also create an account for you on affiliated platforms so you can easily manage future local events in your community.
TheLeap.org makes great efforts to protect the Personal Information provided via the Web Site from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from the Web Site may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.
TheLeap.org also strives to insure the secure collection and transmission of sensitive visitor payment information using industry accepted data collection and encryption methodologies. If you choose to make a donation to TheLeap.org your credit card information will be used only for transactions through our secure online payment system. If you choose to make that donation recurring, the information will be stored by our third party payment processors, and is not stored or seen by TheLeap.org. TheLeap.org does not sell or otherwise disclose such visitor payment information outside the organization.
Updates and Email Tracking
If you sign up to receive updates from TheLeap.org, we will strive to provide you accurate and timely information about our activities. In order to improve our engagement with our network, we may track whether the emails we send to you are being opened and whether the links they contain are being clicked.
You can unsubscribe at any time by using the link provided in at the bottom of any email you receive from us, or delete your profile by sending us an email to email@example.com.
If you aren’t active with us for over 6 months, we will permanently delete your profile with us.
Links to Other Web Sites
Through the Web Site, you can choose to access certain social media web sites and services that are owned and controlled by third parties (e.g. Facebook and Twitter) (the “Social Media Services”). When you elect to access and use the Social Media Services, you will be sharing your information (which will include personal information if you elect to share such information) with those Social Media Services. As with other Third Party Sites, the information that you share with the Social Media Services will be governed by the privacy policies and terms of service of the providers of such Social Media Services and not by the policies and procedures we describe here.
