Welcome to the website and online service of the Solutions Project and the 100% Campaign. We know that you care how information about you is used and shared. This Privacy Policy governs your use of our web sites, web pages, interactive features, applications, blogs, software, tools, Facebook, Twitter or other social networking sites, and their respective contents, and other online wireless offerings that post a link to this Privacy Policy, whether accessed via computer, mobile device or other technology (the “Sites”). We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy. The Sites are intended for users who are located in the United States of America, and shall be interpreted under the laws of the United States.

User-Provided Information: You provide us information about yourself, such as your name and e-mail address, if you register for the Solutions Project domain (including by “following,” “liking,” or linking your account to our Sites on a third party website or network), register for electronic newsletters or other features, complete surveys, submit a comment or question to us using a “contact us” or similar feature, or in any other way submit personal information to us via the Sites. If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address and our responses. We may also retain any messages you send through these domains.

When you visit our Sites, we may send one or more cookies – a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and lets us help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through our Sites. A cookie does not collect personal information about you. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Sites. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of our Sites may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

We use the personal information you submit to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of our Sites. By providing the Solutions Project with your email address (including by “following,” “liking,” linking your account to our Sites on a third party website or network), you consent to our using the email address to send you essential notices, such as changes to features of our Sites including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. You also agree that we may send you notifications of activity on our Sites to the email address you give us, in accordance with any applicable privacy settings. If you opt-in to additional communications products, such as email newsletters, we may use your email address to send you other messages or other information. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out by clicking on an opt-out link within the e-mail you receive.

Following termination or deactivation of your account, we may retain your profile information and user content for a reasonable time for archival purposes.

Personally Identifiable Information: the Solutions Project will not rent or sell your personally identifiable information to others. We may share your information with our service providers and other third parties that provide services for or through the Sites or for our business. We require our service providers to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information. We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of the Solutions Project (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, the Solutions Project will not disclose personal information to any third party unless required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the law, comply with legal process served on us or our affiliates, or investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities; (b) to enforce this policy, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, or to protect the security or integrity of our Site; and (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of our Sites, our users or others.

The Solutions Project cares about the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to the Solutions Project or guarantee that your information on the service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. Your privacy settings may also be affected by changes to the functionality of third-party providers, such as social networks. The Solutions Project is not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third party. To protect your privacy and security, we may take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from the Solutions Project, at all times.

In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, the Solutions Project will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised, in accordance with the notification procedures set forth in this Privacy Policy, or as otherwise required by applicable law.

You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through our Sites, in which case the Solutions Project may not be able to provide certain services to you. You can review and correct the information about you that the Solutions Project keeps on file by contacting us directly at privacy@thesolutionsproject.org.

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, the Solutions Project does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for our website accounts. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on our Sites. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at privacy@thesolutionsproject.org.

We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our Sites, nor the information or content contained therein. These websites may collect personal information about you. Please remember that when you use a link to go from our Sites to another website, our Privacy Policy is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other website, including those that have a link on our Sites, is subject to that website’s own rules and policies. Please read over those rules and policies before proceeding.

It is our policy to provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business related purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through conspicuous posting of such notice on our website, as determined by the Solutions Project in its sole discretion. We reserve the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to you, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification as described in this Privacy Policy.

If we change our privacy policies and procedures, we will post those changes on our website to keep you aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we may disclose it. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page. If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, please contact us at info@thesolutionsproject.org.
