Brooklyn Org (“Brooklyn Org”, “we” , “us” or “our”) respects your privacy, and we are committed to protecting your information.
Information We Collect
Information You Provide to Us
We have developed the Website so that you can access and use it without being required to provide your name, email address or similar personal information. However, certain features of the Website may allow you to voluntarily provide such information to us. This includes:
- When you subscribe to our email newsletter;
- When you submit questions or comments via our “Contact Us” form;
- When you register for our programs, activities, initiatives, and events; or
- When you donate to us or one of our funds.
Information We Collect Automatically
When you interact with the Website, certain information about your use of the Website is automatically collected.
This information includes your domain name and host for Internet access; the Internet address of the site from which you came; the date and time of your access; your computer’s IP address and information about its operating system, browser and host; the date and time you access the Website and the pages you visit.
Much of this information is collected through cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies, as well as through your web browser or device (e.g., IP address, MAC address, browser version, etc.). The tracking technologies employed when you use our Website may be first-party or third-party.
How We Use Your Information
We use the information we collect from you in a variety of ways, including to:
- Communicate with you, including to respond to your inquiries and requests;
- Send you newsletters, mailings, and information about programs, initiatives, activities, and events;
- Provide, maintain, personalize, optimize, and improve the Website, including research and analytics regarding use of the Website, or to remember you when you leave and return to the Website; and
- Detect, investigate, and prevent activities that may violate our policies or be fraudulent or illegal.
How We Share Your Information
We may provide your personal information to third parties who are acting on our behalf or assisting us in providing services to you, such as data storage, maintenance services, hosting services, database management, marketing, web analytics, and payment processing.
We do not sell your personal information to third parties, nor do we not share personal information (in this case, as defined by California’s “Shine the Light” law) with third parties and/or affiliates for such third parties’ or affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes.
We may use or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on us or the Website; (b) protect and defend our rights or property, the Website, or our users; and (c) act under emergency circumstances to protect the personal safety of us, our aﬃliates, our agents, or the users of the Website or the public.
We may share information we collect about you (other than personal information), including de-identified information, with third parties, including researchers.
You have the ability to decline cookies by modifying your browser settings. However, declining cookies may impact your user experience with the Website.
We may also use web beacons or flash cookies. A web beacon or flash cookie (also known as an “action tag” “tracer tag,” or “single-pixel GIF”) is an invisible graphic on a web page or e-mail newsletter that is programmed to collect non-personally identifiable information about your use of a given website or newsletter (for example, whether you opened an e-mail). Like cookies, web beacons allow us and our technology providers to summarize overall usage patterns for our analysis and provide personalized services to you. We do not share or provide personally identifiable information we may collect through such web beacons, such as names or e-mail addresses.
You may choose to stop receiving our email newsletter or other update emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in those emails, or you can contact us at email@example.com.
Brooklyn Org strives to protect the transmission and storage of any information submitted by visitors to the Website, but no transmission and storage of data is completely secure, and any submissions you make are at your sole risk.
