1. Notice and Purpose of Policy
2. Notice on Children
We are a general audience site. This site is not intended for children under 18 years of age and we do not direct any of our content at children. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 18. For more information, please refer to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
3. Notice on Data Gathering, Use, and Disclosure of Personally-Identifying Information (Name, email address, phone number, etc.)
Endowment Commons may include forms, surveys, or promotions in the operation of EndowmentCommons.org that ask users to supply personally-identifying information such as names, email addresses, phone numbers, and other contact information necessary to facilitate a positive business relationship. Email addresses and phone numbers voluntarily provided by a user in any form submissions will be used to reply to the user, as appropriate. If the user does not wish for Endowment Commons to store their email address, they can contact us to let us know their preference by contacting us.
Our email lists are never shared with other partners or vendors.
4. Notice on Data Gathering, Use, and Disclosure of Non-Personally-Identifying Information (IP Address, Cookies, Etc.)
In some cases, we may also collect information from third-party sources such as social media sites or other partner sites for use in combination with the information collected through the activities described above.
Endowment Commons also uses Google Analytics, Google Adwords, and other remarketing tools that track specific user actions such as pages visited or content downloaded. This enables us to provide targeted marketing materials.
5. Website Security
This website maintains appropriate administrative, physical, and technical security, including the use of sitewide encryption, to prevent unauthorized access, misuse, loss, or disclosure of personal information. While we take these reasonable efforts and precautions to ensure the safety of user data, no transmission of data, digitally or otherwise, can be guaranteed 100% secure.
6. CAN-SPAM Act Compliance
For email correspondence, we ask users to “opt-in” to receive communications compliant with current CAN-SPAM regulations. The CAN-SPAM Act is a set of rules establishing requirements for commercial email correspondence which gives recipients the right to “opt-out” of emails being sent to them. The Act lists strict penalties for businesses found in violation of the terms of the legislation.
Endowment Commons collects email addresses to respond to inquiries and other requests and to send information related to its services and additional offerings. In accordance with the CAN-SPAM Act, we agree not to use false or misleading email subject lines or email addresses, identify the purpose (including advertising) of any message, and honor user opt-out/unsubscribe requests promptly.
7. California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
Beginning on January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) (Civil Code § 1798.100) provides residents of California with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. You have the right to be informed of the categories of personal information that we collect about you, the categories of sources from which the personal information was collected, the business or commercial purposes for which the personal information is used.
You also have the right to request we delete any personal information that we have collected and retained, subject to certain exceptions such as if we need to complete a transaction for you, to detect and protect against fraudulent and illegal activity, to exercise our rights, or to comply with a legal obligation.
To make such a request, please contact us.
