When accessing the The Climate Web website, we will learn certain information about you during your visit.
Similar to other websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" (see explanation below) and server logs to collect information about how our site is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our site, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address.
A cookie is a very small text document that often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but to protect your privacy your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Your computer and other devices use IP addresses every time you connect to the Internet. Your IP address is a number used by computers on the network to identify your computer. Our web server automatically collects IP addresses as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, by mail, and by telephone. This also applies when you register for our website, sign up through any of our forms using your email address, or make a purchase on this site. For further information see the email policies below.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service, and making available other items and services to our customers and prospective customers.
We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide such information to us, nor will we sell or otherwise transfer such information to unaffiliated third parties without your approval.
We may disclose your personal information to comply with a court order, law, or legal process, including responding to a government or regulatory request; to enforce other agreements, including for billing and collection purposes; or if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect individuals’ rights, property, or safety. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
All email sent from our organization will clearly state who the email is from and provide information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all email messages will contain information on how to remove yourself from our mailing list so that you receive no further email communication from us.

You can contact us at any time to see what data we have about you, if any; change/correct any data we have about you; have us delete any data we have about you; or express any concern you have about our use of your data. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

Use of Testimonials
In accordance to with the FTC guidelines concerning the use of endorsements and testimonials in advertising, please be aware of the following:
Testimonials that appear on this site are actually received via text, audio, or video submission. They are individual experiences, reflecting real life experiences of those who have used our products and/or services in some way. They are individual results and results do vary. We do not claim that they are typical results. The testimonials are not necessarily representative of all of those who will use our products and/or services.
The testimonials displayed in any form on this site (text, audio, video or other) are reproduced verbatim, except for correction of grammatical or typing errors. Some may have been shortened. In other words, the entire message received by the testimonial writer may not be displayed when it seems too lengthy or the whole statement does not seem relevant for the general public.

How Do We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions?
Email is not a secure medium of communication and we request that you do not send private information to us by email. We do our best to protect your personal information, but we cannot guarantee the security of personal information transmitted over the Internet; any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. If we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us securely via Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit card data and other sensitive information are never transmitted via email.
We may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to different sections of our site, what information is of most interest, determining design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, we may use software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information or otherwise cause damage.
