At The Climate Mobilization (“TCM”), we dedicate ourselves to restoring a safe climate and the protection of the personal information of our supporters, members, donors, and website visitors (“you”).
2.0 Information We Collect and Why
2.1 Non-Personal Information
Like most websites, we collect information that cannot specifically identify you. This non-identifiable information includes your internet service provider, IP address, the browser and type of machine you are using, the website that referred you to us, pages you request and the date and time you request them.
We use Google Analytics to gather this non-personal information. Generally, we use this information only in the aggregate to understand how visitors navigate through our website and improve user experience. For more information on Google Analytics, please review this link: google.com/policies/privacy/partners.
2.2 Personal Information
The only time we collect personal information, or information that can identify you, is when you voluntarily provide that information, such as when you sign up for updates or register to participate in projects or campaigns. This information includes your name, email address, phone number, address, zip code, and credit card information. We will use the information you provided for the purpose you provided it, and we will add you to our mailing list.
As part of our mailing list, you will receive updates on other TCM campaigns or activities. You will also receive information about campaigns or activities of local affiliates, including Climate Mobilization Project (“CMP,” our affiliated 501(c)(3)), or other trusted TCM allies in some instances —such as if our allies are organizing events that further TCM’s mission in your local area. To improve your engagement with our network, we track whether users open the emails we send and click the links within those emails. You can opt-out of these communications at any time using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email we send.
