This Privacy Statement is for the purpose of demonstrating respect for your privacy preferences and to disclose our information collection and sharing practices. Regardless of whether you provide us with your personal information via our website or in another manner (e.g. telephone, regular mail or face-to-face), we strive to honor your privacy preferences.
BY ACCESSING AND/OR USING THE WEBSITE, YOU HAVE AGREED TO 1) abide by the practices described in this Privacy Statement, as may be amended from time to time, and 2) the transfer, processing and maintenance of your personal and sensitive information in the United States of America.
THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT: Depending on the type of communication or transaction, the personal information we collect may include, but is not limited to, your name, postal address, zip code, telephone number, organization name, e-mail address, credit card, bank information or billing information.
WHERE AND WHEN WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION: You will be asked to provide your personal information when making donations, making purchases at our online store, requesting communications, connection with us in a business agreement (whether it is via the web site, e-mail, direct mail or telephone communications).
WE DO NOT KNOWINGLY COLLECT INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN: We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 18 or knowingly allow such persons to provide us with their personal information without parent or guardian consent. If you are under 18, do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address, unless you have your parent’s or guardian’s permission. In the event we learn that we collected personal information from anyone under the age of 18, and do not have a parent or guardian’s consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.
INFORMATION SECURITY: EarthJams.com has layered security in our systems and only designated users have access to hard copies of your personal information. All on-line transactions are done on a secure server. This means that information entered on the transaction page is encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) before transmission. On secure pages, a “closed” lock symbol is displayed in the bottom part of your browser screen and the website address in the address bar at the top of the browser screen starts with an “https” instead of an “http”. Donation pages are verified by our third-party donation program’s software.
SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION: Personal information will be shared internally at EarthJams.com to complete your donations or purchasing transactions, to contact you about our on-going programs, discuss business opportunities, and ways that you can further support our efforts to help children through the arts. Your personal information will also be used to provide you access to the various sections of our website that have been personalized for your needs. EarthJams.com will not share, rent or exchange donor names and postal address with third parties. Except in the limited circumstances outlined below, EarthJams.com will never intentionally share your e-mail addresses, phone numbers or financial information.
COOKIES AND PIXELS: A “cookie” is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from EarthJams.com’s web server and is stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies are used to collect non-identifying information about the user, such as Web surfing behavior or user preferences for a specific website. EarthJams.com uses two different types of cookies – session-based and persistent cookies. Session-based cookies expire at the end of a browser session so once you close your browser the cookie simply terminates. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you remove them. Persistent cookies are used to provide internal Website analytics. You can manually delete all cookies including persistent ones within your browser privacy. In addition, EarthJams.com uses “pixels,” or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. These pixels do not collect identifying information.
WEBSITE LINKS: In order to provide certain services and goods at our website, we contract with other companies and individuals. These additional services and goods may include “links” to other websites from our website. EarthJams.com’s privacy practices may not be applicable at any third-party sites. Anytime you leave the EarthJams.com website, we have no control regarding what information may be collected about you, nor do we control what third-parties might do with the information. For example, when you click on a merchant’s name at the EarthJams.com site, you will be connected with the third-party merchant’s website (even if the EarthJams.com name/logo is on the screen). This merchant website should have its own privacy statement applying to transactions at their website. It is important that you review any privacy policies on third-party sites carefully, BEFORE you use any services or programs offered.
CHANGES TO PRIVACY PRACTICES: From time to time, EarthJams.com may revise its privacy practices to address changing technology, security measures and website functionality. We strive to provide you with timely notice of these changes. Please contact us if you have any questions about changes to our practices.
