Nest Foundation (“we,” “our,” “us”) respects your privacy. This policy describes how we collect, use, and share information related to you.
It is our policy commitment to be transparent about our practices. This commitment reflects the value we place on earning and keeping the trust of our activists, users, viewers, employees, nonprofit and business partners and others who share their personal information with us.
As used in this Policy, the term “aggregate information” means non-personally identifiable/anonymous information about visitors, including but not limited to age, gender, frequency of visits to the Services, parts of the Services most frequently accessed, search terms entered, browser type, IP address, etc. Aggregate information is reviewed and analyzed on a collective basis and will not be linked to the identity of any individual person. By accessing the Services, you agree to be bound by the Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Policy, please do not use the Services. Each time you use the Services, the current version of the Policy will apply.
Accordingly, when you use the Services, you should check the Effective Date of this Policy (which appears at the end of the document) and review any changes since the last version.
Information Collected on the Services and How It May Be Used
When you access and use the Services, there are 3 ways we may collect information about you:
1. Information Collected Automatically
2. Information You Knowingly and Voluntarily Provide
We collect information that you provide when you use the Services, for example the information you provide when you sign up to receive email alerts, when you complete a survey, when you enter a search term on the Services, or when you ask us a question or email us with feedback.
In some cases this information will be personal information. Nest Foundation uses this information for the purposes for which you provide it. For example, if you provide your e-mail address when you sign up to receive e-mail alerts, we use your e-mail address to deliver the e-mail alerts you request.
We may also use the information we collect on the Services for various business purposes such as customer service, fraud prevention, market research, improving our products and services, and providing you with information and offers we believe may be of or interest to you. We may also remove personal information from our files and use the aggregate information for historical, statistical or scientific purposes
3. Sharing/Disclosing Personal Information and Aggregate Information
We may share, transfer or disclose your personal information collected on the Services to affiliates and other entities related to us. We may share information with service providers that provide services to us in connection with our operations (e.g., web hosting and mailing services). We may share, sell, transfer or otherwise disclose your personal information collected on the Services to third parties unrelated to Nest Foundation, including charitable organizations, so these third parties can contact you for marketing and promotional purposes. Our current partners are listed in the “Partners” sections of our website. These lists are subject to change.
In addition, we may share or transfer information: (i) to comply with a legal requirement or court order; (ii) to investigate a possible crime, such as identity theft; (iii) in connection with the sale, purchase, merger, reorganization, liquidation or dissolution of Nest Foundation; or (iv) when we believe it is appropriate to do so to protect the rights, property, or safety of us or others. In the event of such a sale, purchase, merger, reorganization, liquidation or dissolution of Nest Foundation, we will use reasonable efforts to try to require that the acquiring entity use personal information you have provided through this Services in a manner that is consistent with this Policy.
Security of Personal Information
We maintain physical, managerial, and technical safeguards designed to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of your personal information. Although we use security measures to help protect your personal information against unauthorized disclosure, misuse, or alteration, as is the case with all computer networks linked to the Internet, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the Internet and will not be responsible for breaches of security.
