Effective Date: December 2017
If you have an unresolved privacy or data use concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you make a contribution, either online or otherwise, we will request certain personally identifiable information about you (such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, and credit card information). This information enables us to process your contribution and communicate with you about it.
Sharing with Third Parties
We will not share your information with third-parties other than for processing your credit card for your contribution.
We do not sell or rent our mailing list to other organizations.
Through our website or otherwise, you may decide to submit personally identifiable information (such as your name and email address) for purposes other than contributing (such as completing the Contact Us form). We collect and store this information and use it for the purposes for which you submitted it. In addition, we may use such information to keep you updated about our work, analyze website usage, and improve our website’s content and layout. We do not share this information with any third parties.
In connection with seeking employment with Mercaptor, you may decide to submit, through our website or otherwise, personally identifiable information (including your name, address, telephone number, email address and any other personally identifiable information requested on our offline forms, as well as an electronic or paper copy of your resume/CV). All information entered into any online or offline forms related to employment is strictly private, and will be viewed only by Mercaptor for human resources purposes. No information stored or submitted in such forms will be used for any purpose other than to assess your qualifications as an employee for Mercaptor.
Please be advised that we may disclose your personal information to the government or to third parties pursuant to law enforcement inquiries, court orders, subpoenas and similar requests, or when we otherwise believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate in connection with any activity that violates the law or may expose us to liability.
We require that the companies we work with to process your online contribution payments use high-grade encryption and security protocols, and that all vendors processing credit card transactions received on our behalf meet all industry standards, certify their compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and are audited to meet with the Statement on Auditing Standard 70 (SAS 70). You should be aware, however, that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet; third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.
Mercaptor does not collect any personally identifying information from you when you visit our website unless you choose to provide such information to us.
You can browse the Mercaptor sites without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. The information we gather during normal browsing comes from two sources: standard server logs collect information such as the IP (Internet Protocol) address, domain name, browser type, operating system, mobile related information if you access our website using your mobile device, and information such as the site that referred you to us, the files you downloaded, the pages you visited, and the dates/times of those visits. This is to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer the site.
Cookies and Tracking Technologies
Our website includes social media features, such as the Facebook Like button, and widgets, such as the Share This button. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our website. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policies of the companies providing them.
This site contains links to other sites. Unless we expressly state otherwise, Mercaptor makes no representations whatsoever concerning the content of those sites. The fact that Mercaptor has provided a link to a site is not an endorsement, authorization, sponsorship, or affiliation with respect to such site, its owners, or its providers. There are risks associated with using any information, software, or products found on the Internet, and Mercaptor cautions you to make sure that you understand these risks before retrieving, using, relying upon, or purchasing anything via the Internet.
Updating Your Information
Upon request Mercaptor will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. We work to process and maintain accurately the information that you share with us. If you have contributed to us and would like to access, correct, update, or delete your personal data or to adjust your mail preferences, you can do so by using our Contact Us form.
We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
