Disclosures to successors
Protecting the privacy rights of third parties
If any postings you make to our website contain information about third parties, you need to make sure that you have permission to include them in your posting. While we are not legally liable for the actions of our users, we will remove any postings for which we are notified that such postings violate the privacy rights of others.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Retaining and Destroying Your Personal Information
We retain information we collect from you for only as long as we need such information for legal, business, or tax purposes. Your information may be retained in electronic form, paper form, or a combination of both. When your information is no longer needed, we will destroy, delete, or erase it.
Changing and Requesting Your Personal Information
You can change or update your personal information using facilities found on our website. If you need assistance with updating your PII or removing yourself from our mailing lists, send us an email with your request or contact us using our contact information found on our website.

Links to Service Partner Websites
We use Flipcause.com for managing volunteers, sponsors and donations. We also sometimes use Paypal.com for donations. We also use MakeProjects.com for Youth Climate Economy Ventures. While these parties are trusted partners, these websites are not under our control and have their own privacy policies.
Protecting Children’s Privacy
We follow the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). For students under 13 enrolled in programs on CLEANetwork, we require parental oversight. Outside of manually-signed up student groups, we do not knowingly collect PII from a child under the age of 13. If you are a parent or guardian and believe that your child is using our website, please contact us. We may ask for proof of identification before we remove any information to prevent malicious removal of account information. If we discover on our own that a child is accessing our website, we will delete the information soon after we discover it. You acknowledge that we do not verify the age of our users nor have any liability to do so.
Our Email Policy
You can always opt out of receipt of further email correspondence from us. We will not sell, rent, or trade your email address to any unaffiliated third party without your permission except in the sale or transfer of our business.
Our Security Policy
We have taken steps to build our website using industry-standard encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of your personal information. Unfortunately we cannot fully guarantee secure data transmission over the Internet because of its nature.
Once we receive your personal information, we have security measures in place to protect against the loss or misuse of your personal information, though again we cannot fully guarantee against such loss or misuse. We strongly urge you to protect any password you may have for our website and not share it with anyone. You should always log out of our website when you finish using it, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place.
Use of Credit Cards
We use third-party billing services and have no control over these services. We use our commercially reasonable efforts to make sure that your credit card number is kept strictly confidential by using only third-party billing services that use industry-standard encryption technology to protect your credit card number from unauthorized use. However, you understand and agree that we are in no way responsible for any misuse of your credit card number.
International Data Transfers
Information that we collect may be stored and processed in and transferred between any of the countries in which we operate in order to enable us to use the information in accordance with this policy. Personal information that you publish on our website or submit for publication on our website may be available via the Internet around the world. While we have security measures in place, we cannot guarantee prevention of the use or misuse of such information by others.
