Effective Date: April 26, 2017

We are committed to respecting and protecting your privacy. Please take some time to read this Privacy Policy which will explain how your Personal Information (as defined below) will be collected through this website (http://generation180.org/) (the “Site”) and used by Generation 180.

If you visit the Site, your visit is subject to this Privacy Policy and you agree to the terms contained herein. Except as expressly provided here, this Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control or to people that we do not employ or manage. Any use of information that we gather and any dispute over privacy is subject to the Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service in effect at the time of use. Generation180 reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time.  Because this Privacy Policy is updated periodically, you should check this website frequently and review the Effective Date to see any changes in our Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Site after the Effective Date constitutes your acceptance of the amended Privacy Policy.  The amended Privacy Policy supersedes all previous versions.

  1. Data

We use technologies like cookies (small files stored by your browser), web beacons, or unique device identifiers to anonymously identify your computer or device so we can deliver a better experience. Our systems also log information like your browser, operating system and IP address (“Usage Data”).

We also may collect information that personally identifies you and/or allows us to contact you that you provide to us while using the Site, such as your name, address, phone number, email address, and location (“Personal Information”). We use personal information to:

  • to establish and manage business relations with you;
  • to provide services or information to you;
  • to communicate with you via email or phone;
  • for general research and aggregate reporting;
  • to offer products and services that may be of interest to you;
  • for customer service, security, to detect fraud or illegal activities, or and for archival and backup purposes in connection with the provision of the services;
  • to better understand how users access and use the Site, for the purposes of trying to improve the Site, diagnose problems, administer our Site and respond to user preferences; and
  • to enforce our Site Terms of Use or other applicable policies.

Our systems may associate Personal Information with your Usage Data (such as pages you view or things you click on or search for) in the course of providing services to you.

By using your device or web browser’s settings, or both, you may modify your cookie settings. Please note, when you disable cookies you may not be able to access certain parts of the Site or the Site may not work properly.

We do not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13. If you believe we have inadvertently collected such information, please contact us so we can promptly obtain parental consent or remove the information.

  1. Sharing of Data

We do not share your Personal Information with other companies for marketing purposes, and we do not allow advertising companies to collect data through our service for ad targeting. We may share your Personal Information and Usage Data with third parties, including employees, contractors, consultants and other parties who require the information to assist us in establishing, maintaining and managing our business relationship with you.  We require our third party service providers to enter into contractual agreements, which require these third parties to comply with the same confidentiality standards as Generation 180.

We disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or subpoena or other legal obligations, in response to a law enforcement agency’s request, or in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with our rights or property.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may do research on our users’ demographics, interests and behaviors based on the information provided to us during your visit to the Platform. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis, which is not personally identifiable.

  1. Location

We collect information on your location through geo-tagged images that you may send to us. Geo-tagging is when your device (e.g. cell phone) uses GPS to attach a location to a photograph.  We use the information embedded into the file of the image to determine the location of where the image was taken.  If you do not wish your images to be geo-tagged, you may turn it off on your device.

  1. Choices About Our Use of Your Personal Information

You can sign into your account to see any Personal Information we have stored and update any Personal Information that is inaccurate or out of date. You can also contact us by email to request to see this information. We may keep your data (including Personal Information) indefinitely.

  1. Security

We use our best efforts to protect your personal information and, to that end, we use tools such as encryption, passwords, and physical security to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, no website can be absolutely secure, and third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the Platform. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain absolutely private.

  1. Notice to California Residents/Your California Privacy Rights
