Ecoviva is committed to preserving your privacy and safeguarding your personal information
Last revised on May 24, 2018
The following statement describes the general practices for the collection, storage, and removal of personal information on our website.
What information do you collect, and what do you do with it?
Generally speaking, we only collect the information necessary to carry out the action that you, the user, are initiating (for example, signing a petition or making a donation). We do not collect other personal information surreptitiously (for example, via tracking cookies from other sites or services). As a rule, what you voluntarily submit to us is what we receive, and we use it for the purpose that you intended.
EcoViva sends out a email updates and appeals on a regular basis. We do not automatically subscribe anyone to our mailing list, and you are free to take actions on our site or use any of its other features without subscribing to our email list. We offer the option to subscribe to our email list through our website. Some people have also subscribed in person at events or other public forums.
If you do choose to subscribe, we will not flood your inbox, and you can unsubscribe at any time through the links that are included in all of our emails to this list. If you have any difficulty with that process or have other questions, you can reply to the email that you received or contact us by phone or mail. (Our contact information is at the bottom of our homepage).
EcoViva does not sell or trade names or other personal data that we collect on our website.
Is my credit card information secure?
Credit card donations through our web site are processed by Network for Good and occasionally through Razzoo. You may also opt to donate via PayPal, and at times we may use other clearly-identified services such as Eventbrite or Square to sell tickets for events or accept donations at them. All of these services are verified and secure payment processors.
Ecoviva never receives or stores your credit card information in any electronic format, so there is no risk that it might be hacked or disclosed. As required by law, we keep a record of your donation and contact information (name, email, etc.) in our database of supporters, and we may follow up with you about your donation or other support later, as well as sending you tax receipts as required by US law. Please feel free to contact us at any time if you would like to change how you are contacted after making a donation or to be removed from this list.
What other information do you collect?
In order to prevent fraud, make sure that our systems are working properly, etc., our web server and other systems routinely keep records of data such as incoming IP addresses, browser and system info, etc. We do not mine this data to attempt to determine personal information from it, and in general we use it only when necessary to verify that our systems are functioning as intended. If you are concerned about websites gathering such information from your visits, we encourage you to consider using VPN or other anonymizing software, since this data is routinely exchanged whenever you use the internet.
What if I want to be removed?
EcoViva respects your privacy. If you want to review personal information that we may have collected about you or you would like to be certain that you have been unsubscribed or removed from our lists, please feel free to contact us.
