Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which Stand.earth collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (“You” or “Users”) of our website located at cleanupcarnival.com (the “Website”).

The Types of Information Stand.earth Collects

Non-personally identifiable information

Stand.earth collects non-personally identifiable information about you whenever you visit our Website. Such information may include the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you used, the type of browser and operating system you used, the date and time you visited the Website, the Internet address of the site from which you linked to the Website, and which pages you viewed on the Website.

Web browser cookies

The Website may use “cookies” to enhance your experience with the Website. Stand.earth may also use cookies to measure aggregate web statistics, such as collecting the number of Users to the Website, the number of repeat Users and the most popular webpages. Stand.earth does not use cookies to track User activity on an individual basis. You may choose to set your web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do so, however, some parts of the Website may not function properly.

Personally identifiable information

Stand.earth collects personally identifiable information, including names, email addresses, mailing addresses, and/or phone numbers, from Users when they voluntarily provide such information to us, such as when a User completes a letter to be sent to Carnival, or when a User submits a report or complaint to Stand.earth about Carnvial.

How Stand.earth Uses the Information that It Collects

Stand.earth uses Users’ personal information for the purpose for which the Users provided the information, for example, to send a letter to Carnival or to review your report. In addition, if you provide Stand.earth with your email address (other than as part of a “Report an Incident” submission), Stand.earth will add you to its email list. We use that list to keep people informed of environmental-related issues that we think may be of interest to them. If at any time you wish to stop receiving communications from Stand.earth, please follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of any email Stand.earth sends you, or send us an email at web@stand.earth and ask to be removed from Stand.earth’s distribution list. If you provide Stand.earth with your cell phone number, you consent to receive autodialed and/or prerecorded messages at that number on any subject from Stand.earth.

How Stand.earth Protects User Information

Stand.earth adopts appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to help protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, but Stand.earth cannot guarantee (as unfortunately no organization can in the modern environment) that your information is 100% secure. In addition, please recognize that email is not a secure method of communication, so you should not include sensitive information in any email you send to us.

Sharing Personal Information

Stand.earth uses third party service providers to help it operate the Website or administer activities on the Website. Stand.earth may share User information with these third parties for those limited purposes but such third parties are required to protect the confidentiality of your information and use it for no other purpose.

If you submit a letter to Carnival via our Website or sign a petition on our Website, Stand.earth may share your personal information (e.g., name, address, comments, etc.) with others, including Carnival, the Government and the media.

If you submit a report through the “Report an Incident” page, Stand.earth will not share your personal information with any third party, other than as provided herein, without permission from the User.

If you make a donation through the Website, Stand.earth will not share your credit card information with any third party, other as provided herein.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Stand.earth will share personally identifiable information about Users when required to do so by law, or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws or to respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant. Morever, Stand.earth may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personally identifiable information regarding Users with third parties.

Third Party Websites

Stand.earth may provide links from the Website to other websites. Stand.earth does not control the content or links that appear on these third party websites and is not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from the Website. These websites and services have their own privacy policies. Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites that have a link to or from Stand.earth’s Website, is subject to that website’s own terms and policies. This Privacy Policy covers only information collected through the use of Stand.earth’s Website. In addition, Stand.earth does not currently respond to web browser “do not track” signals.

Compliance with Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act

Protecting the privacy of the young is especially important. For that reason, Stand.earth never collects information at the Website from those Stand.earth knows are under 13, and no part of the Website is structured to attract anyone under 13. If Stand.earth becomes aware of having information about anyone under 13, Stand.earth will promptly delete the information.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Stand.earth may update this Privacy Policy at any time. When it does, Stand.earth will revise the updated date at the bottom of this page. Stand.earth encourages Users to frequently check this page for any changes to stay informed about what information Stand.earth collects and how it uses that information. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this Privacy Policy periodically and become aware of any modifications since your last visit.

Your Acceptance of These Terms

By using this Website, you signify your acceptance of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use the Website. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy will be deemed your acceptance of those changes.
