What information do we collect from you
We automatically collect some information about your computer when you visit our website. For example, we will collect session data, including your IP address, Web browser software, and referring website. We also may collect information about your online activity, such as content viewed and pages visited. One of our goals in collecting this automatic information is to help us understand the interests of our users and customize your user experience. With this automated collected data we do not retreive any personal information from you of your computer. Also we will never use this information to find out your identity.
We receive and store any information you enter on our site or give us in any other way. This includes information that can identify you ("personal information"), including your first and last name, telephone number, postal and e-mail addresses, user name and password. We may also request information about your volunteer plans, history and preferences. You can choose not to provide information to us, but in general some information about you is required in order for you to enjoy the benefits of being a registered member. For example, only registered members are able to post comments, post in forums, create a profile, create blogs and photo albums. In addition, some information is also required in order for you to apply for a volunteer project, ask us a question or initiate other transactions on our site.
Information About Others
You will have the opportunity to provide contact information for other people through our site. You should obtain the consent of other individuals prior to providing Ecomambo with their personal information.
How we use your information
With whom we share your information
Ecomambo may share your information with the following entities:
(i) Business partners with whom we may offer products or services in conjunction. You can tell when a third party is involved in a product or service you have requested because their name will appear either with ours or separately. If you choose to access these optional services, we may share information about you, including your personal information, with those partners. Please note that we do not control the privacy practices of these third-party business partners.
(ii) Referring websites. If you were referred to Ecomambo from another website, we may share your registration information, such as your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number and preferences, about you with that referring website. We have not placed limitations on the referring websites' use of personal information and we encourage you to review the privacy policies of any website that referred you to Ecomambo.
(iii) Social Media Services. You can choose to access certain third party social media websites and services through our site (such as Facebook and Twitter). When you do so, you are sharing information with those sites, and the information you share will be governed by their privacy policies. You may also be able to modify your privacy settings with these third party social media web sites.
We also may share your information:
(iv) In response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases we reserve the right to raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.
(vi) In connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.
If you choose to become a member of, and thus create a profile on, Ecomambo, certain information in your profile will be publicly viewable and identifiable via your screen name. You will have the ability to view your profile as members of the public will see it. Additionally other Ecomambo members (including project organisations) may contact you by using Ecomambo's internal communication tools; however, Ecomambo will not share your email address with any other members nor display it any public manner. All Ecomambo members have the option to turn off specific communication features at any time through the community profile page .
Other than as set out above, you will be notified when personal information about you will be shared with third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to have us share such information.
How we protect your information
We want you to feel confident about using our site, and we are committed to protecting the information we collect. While no website can guarantee security, we have implemented appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security procedures to help protect the personal information you provide to us. For example, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they only may do so for permitted business functions. In addition, we employ firewalls and intrusion detection systems to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your information.
