EcoRise has created this privacy notice to explain how we use information that you may provide while visiting our website and to demonstrate our firm commitment to Internet privacy. EcoRise may modify this policy from time to time so we encourage you to check this page when revisiting this website.
How We Use Your Information
EcoRise is committed to protecting your privacy online. When you register; submit an eStore, educator, or contact form; contribute; sign up to volunteer; or take any other action on our site, we may ask you to give us contact information, including your name, address, telephone number and/or e-mail address. We may obtain information about you from outside sources and add it to or combine it with the information we collect through this site. We use this information to operate this site, send news and information to you about EcoRise, and to solicit your support of or participation in https://ecorise.org programs, events and activities. We use your e-mail address to send such information by e-mail and may use your telephone number to call you for these purposes.
We will never provide your e-mail address or any of your personal information to any other person or organization, for any purpose. If you decide to make a contribution online, we may also ask for your credit card number and its expiration date. That information is used solely for processing your contribution; is not maintained by our organization; and is never disclosed to anyone, for any other purpose other than for processing your contribution, under any circumstances. If you opt-in to contribute a recurring donation, the processing platform, Stripe, maintains your credit card information but has no authority to share or use the information in any way except for the processing of the recurring donation.
We do not maintain any of the information described above on persons who, regardless of citizenship, are residing in countries that are members of the European Union. If you are a resident of an EU nation, please do not take any action on this site or provide any information about yourself through this site. If you are a resident of an EU nation and believe you have already provided such data inadvertently, through this site please contact us at the e-mail address below so that we can take steps to delete that data.
How We Protect Information You Provide
https://ecorise.org uses industry-standard security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. Our server is located in a locked, secure environment. Permission to access your information is granted only to you and https://ecorise.org employees or contractors who need to know that information to provide services to you. Although we make good faith efforts to store information collected by this website in a secure operating environment, we cannot guarantee complete security.

Other Disclosure of Your Information
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when we have a good-faith belief that disclosure is appropriate or necessary to comply with the law (for example, a lawful subpoena); to protect our rights or property; to protect our donors, artists, and supporters from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful conduct; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.
Special Notice for Parents
We want to help you guard your children’s privacy. We encourage you to talk to your children about safe and responsible use of their personal information while using the Internet. https://ecorise.org does not knowingly collect, use, or distribute children’s personally identifiable information to any third parties.

We may also use open and click rate data from emails to track open rates for our mailings, so that we can tell which mailings appeal most to our supporters.
We may place online advertising with third-party vendors, including Google and Facebook, which will be shown on other Sites on the Internet. In some cases, those third-party vendors may decide which ads to show you based on your prior visits to the Site. At no time will you be personally identified to those third-party vendors, nor will any of the information you share with us be shared with those third-party vendors.
