This Privacy Policy has been updated as of February 12, 2018. It applies solely to information collected by asyousow.org and disclosingthefacts.org. For privacy policies of fossilfreefunds.org, deforestationfreefunds.org, and tobaccofreefunds.org, please visit each site’s respective privacy policy.

As You Sow is committed to user privacy. Our Privacy Policy is intended to ensure that your personal information is handled in a safe and responsible manner. This Policy addresses:

  • what personally identifiable information is collected from you through the asyousow.org and disclosingthefacts.org websites, how this information is used and with whom it may be shared;
  • what choices are available to you regarding the use of your data;
  • the security procedures in place to protect against the misuse of your information; and

Information Collection, Use and Sharing

As You Sow is the sole owner of the information collected on the asyousow.org and disclosingthefacts.org websites.  We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you.  We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.  We do not use third-party advertisement networks, or other networks that follow you across the web. As you browse our websites, we use analytics services to ensure you're finding the content you're looking for, but we do not correlate this information to individual users.

When you share your name, address or e-mail address with us, by joining our mailing list or downloading a report or making a donation to As You Sow, we may use this information to send you information about As You Sow's activities, webinar invitations, and other information. You may customize your e-mail preferences to receive only certain types of e-mail.

As You Sow uses Google Analytics to determine efficacy of our content placement. We do not use the software to track individual users. If you would like to opt-out of Google Analytics tracking, please use this browser add-on.

Security

We take precautions to protect your information.  When you submit sensitive information via the asyousow.org or disclosingthefacts.org websites, your information is protected both online and offline.  We encrypt your connection to our websites and to our donation processor over HTTPS.  You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

We process our e-mails through Pardot, which we share with our Salesforce database. For information on Salesforce and Pardot, see Salesforce's e-mail privacy policy.
