Moralcourage.org Privacy Policy

Last updated: May 1, 2014

Thank you for visiting and using moralcourage.org. We are committed to protecting your privacy and, for that reason, we have adopted this Privacy Policy to to explain what information may be collected through our website, mobile app, and their related tools and services (collectively, the “Services”), and what happens to that information once it is collected. The Services are owned and operated by Moral Courage LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“MCLLC,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). This Privacy Policy applies to information collected through the Services, as well as other information provided to us online or offline by customers or users of our website, whether you are accessing the Services from the United States or anywhere else in the world; however, it does not apply to information collected from our employees, contractors or vendors.

1. Consent

By using the Services or our website, you consent to this Privacy Policy and you represent that you are at least 13 years of age. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy or if you are not at least 13 years old, you may not use the Services, including without limitation our website or mobile app. Information gathered through the Services may be transferred, used, and stored in the United States and in foreign jurisdictions in which you, we, our agents, customers and other users of the Services are located. If you access the Services, you consent to the transfer, use and storage of your Personal Information (as defined below) in those jurisdictions. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. You further agree that all transactions relating to the Services (including without limitation our website and app) will be deemed to have occurred in the United States.

2. Collection of Personal Information

We collect Personal Information in connection with our Services. When we use the term “Personal Information” we are talking about information that can be used to identify an individual and may include, but is not limited to, your name, personal or business address, email address, phone number and other contact information, social security, driver’s license or other unique, government-issued identification number, date of birth, and information contained in any image, photograph, form, field, or profile you choose to submit through our Services. “Personal Information” also includes any credit or debit card or other financial account information you may provide to us or our third-party payment application provider for billing purposes. You may always choose not to provide Personal Information, but this may prevent you from receiving certain Services.

Moral Courage LLC may also collect non-Personal Information (aggregate, non-individually identifiable or demographic information). An example of non-Personal Information would be system-related information such as IP addresses to perform internal Moral Courage LLC functions, use information, browser and browser speed, bandwidth of your Internet connectivity, general location of your server and the pages of our website that were viewed during a visit. We use this information for internal purposes to help us diagnose problems, monitor traffic patterns and otherwise continually improve our Services.

Please note that the Services may provide links to third party sites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies, practices or the content of websites owned by others that you may link to or that may be linked from the Services. Accordingly, we encourage you to review the privacy policies and terms of service of those websites so that you understand how those websites collect, use and share any Personal Information.

3. Use of Personal Information

Moral Courage LLC may use the Personal Information to assist us in setting up accounts; improving online operations; processing transactions; providing customer service; providing you with newsletters, RSS feeds, and/or other communications or services which you have signed up for or otherwise agreed to receive (for example, processing your payments to provide any subscription services or goods you order through the Services); displaying content (such as advertisements, videos and search results) that is customized to your interests or preferences; sending account- or transaction-related communications such as welcome letters and transaction confirmations; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and technologies; and managing our systems. Where permitted by applicable law, we may also use your Personal Information to contact you regarding any of the foregoing activities. We will only use your Personal Information in the way we specified when it was collected (including as described in this Privacy Policy).

Please note that Moral Courage LLC may store any information you enter through the Services or otherwise provide to us, including without limitation Personal Information. For example, you might fill out a “Contact Us” form, or register to be a user or subscriber of our multimedia- and information-related services. However, Moral Courage LLC will not provide your Personal Information to third parties for their own direct marketing or advertising purposes without your prior affirmative consent. If you would like to unsubscribe from Moral Courage LLC marketing e-mails, by following the unsubscribe instructions in any such message you receive or by contacting us at the below address; please note, however, that even if you unsubscribe from marketing emails, we may still send emails to you regarding transactions requested by you or regarding your relationship with us, such as order confirmations, notices about your account and responses to questions you submit to us via a “Contact Us” or similar form.

4. Disclosure of Personal Information

We may disclose Personal Information and non-Personal Information to other users of the Services as directed by you. We may disclose Personal Information and non-Personal Information to companies, agents, contractors, service providers or others engaged to perform functions on our behalf (such as processing of payments, provision of data storage, hosting of our website, marketing of our products and services, conducting audits, and performing web analytics). These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations. We may also use your Personal Information to compile data in an aggregated, anonymous form not traceable to you, which we may disclose or sell to any third party for any reason.

We may also disclose your Personal Information to third parties when we believe, in good faith and in our sole discretion, that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) enforce or apply the terms and conditions of the Services, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (b) comply with legal or regulatory requirements or an enforceable governmental request, (c) protect the rights, property or safety of us, our users or other third parties, (d) prevent a crime or protect national security, or (e) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues. We may also disclose non-Personal Information to our clients, business partners, merchants, advertisers, investors, potential buyers and other third parties if we deem such disclosure, in our sole discretion, to have sound business reasons or justifications. We will NOT sell, rent, share or trade your Personal Information to third parties for their own marketing purposes unless you have granted us express affirmative permission to do so. Finally, Moral Courage LLC reserves the right to transfer information (including your Personal Information) to a third party in the event of a sale, merger, or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of our company, or in the unlikely event of a bankruptcy, liquidation or receivership of our business. You will be notified via e-mail or prominent notice on our website for 30 days of any such change in ownership or control of your Personal Information.

5. Accessing and Updating Personal Information

When you use our Services, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your Personal Information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. If you’d like us to update, correct, delete or deactivate any Personal Information that you have provided to us, please send your request to us at the below address and we will process your request within a reasonable period of time after receipt. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backups), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case, where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.

Please contact us with any questions, if you need assistance accessing or changing your Personal Information, or if you would like to have your Personal Information deleted. Please be aware that if you delete your Personal Information, you may not be able to continue to use the website or the Services. Ordinarily, we retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you the services you request. Also, even if you request that we delete your Personal Information, we may need to retain certain information for a limited period of time to enforce our agreements and satisfy our legal, audit and/or dispute resolution requirements. If you wish to cancel your account with the Services or request that we no longer use your information to provide you with any services, contact us at the below address.

6. Cookies and Automatic Information Gathering Technologies

Non-Personal Information (including aggregate, technical or demographic information) can also be collected through the standard operation of our internet servers and logs as well as other automatic data collection tools such as “cookies,” “beacons” and other similar technologies, by us directly and by third party service providers we may authorize to collect information through the Services on our behalf (e.g., Google Analytics). A “cookie” is a small text file that is recorded either temporarily or persistently on your hard drive and that a website can use in order to recognize visitors who revisit a website so as to facilitate their ongoing access to and use of the website. “Beacons” are graphics designed to collect web log information such as pages viewed or messages opened. Information we may collect through cookies and beacons includes your browser type, language preference, operating system, referring website (if applicable), the date and time of each user visit or request, the pages visited on our website, and any listings or discussion forums visited. We may also collect statistical information about the behavior of visitors to our website on an aggregated, anonymous basis. By using the Services, you expressly consent to our use of cookies as described in this Privacy Policy.

Cookies can be prevented by activating the facility that is available in most web browsers that enables the user to deny or accept cookies. Recognize, however, that cookies may be necessary in order to provide certain features such as the customized delivery of certain information. We do not use cookies, beacons or similar technologies to collect Personal Information.

While we may use cookies or other automatic information gathering technologies to display advertisements and offers that may be of interest to you, while you are using our website or mobile application we do NOT use these technologies to track your behavior across the web or to store your Personal Information or browser history.

7. International Users

By visiting our website and by providing us with your Personal Information or data, you acknowledge and agree that due to the international dimension of MCLLC we may use the Personal Information or data collected in the course of our relationship for the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy or in our other communications with you, including the transmission of information outside your resident jurisdiction. In addition, please understand that such Personal Information and data may be stored on servers located in the United States. By providing us with your Personal Information or other data, you consent to the collection, use and transfer of such data as described in this Privacy Policy.

8. Children

We do not knowingly solicit or collect Personal Information from users under 13 years of age. Nor do we knowingly market our products or services to children under the age of 13. Further, we do not authorize users under 13 years of age to use the Services or our website. If we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that data from our systems upon being notified that we have collected such information.

9. Information Security

We utilize reasonable information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information. For example, we use 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology when data is transmitted over the Internet; open FTP connections to our servers are handled at most times via SFTP; and we endeavor to restrict administrative access to the Services to key personnel and on a need-to-know basis. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet and no method of data storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its security.

We restrict access to Personal Information to Moral Courage LLC employees, contractors, service providers and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our Services or website. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

10. Changes to this Policy

We may update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on the relevant Services prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
