Privacy Policy

Our commitment to privacy

Atlas Network knows that you care about how information is used and shared, and we appreciate you trusting us to do so carefully and sensibly. This Privacy Policy explains our best practices and the choices you have about the way your information is collected and used by Atlas Network. It applies to the personally identifiable information that we collect both online and offline.

What information is collected by Atlas Network?

We collect personal information when you voluntarily submit it to us.

For example, donors may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers, and/or credit/debit card information). If a donor, or a website visitor, contacts us by email, they may provide us with their email address and name. Providing data is required in these contexts in order for us to process your donations, requests, or respond to inquiries.

In addition to the personal information that you submit to us, we may collect personal information about you from reputable third parties or automatically collect information using the following technologies:

  • Web Server Logs: Our web servers may collect certain information such as IP address(es), pages visited, time of visits, and referring website(s).

  • Cookies: Cookies are simple text files stored by your web browser that provide a method of distinguishing among visitors to the website and allow us to provide secure services such as our learning academy and partnership portal. You may deactivate or block cookies within your web browser, but this may have a negative impact upon the usability and functionality of our website.

Where do we transfer and store information?

Atlas Network is based in the United States, and any information transmitted to us may be stored, accessed, or processed in the United States. Residents of some other countries, including residents of the European Union, should be aware that the laws of the United States do not offer the same protections as the laws of your home country.

How do we use information?

We collect information primarily to accept donations, complete our charitable projects, and provide you with information or access concerning our training, programs, grants, publications, and events. We also use information for internal purposes (to better understand our supporter network) and for analytical purposes (to respond to requests for information and to improve our website, donor base, and outreach). We may inform you of other purposes at the time that we collect some forms of information. For example, if you apply for a job, we may collect information in order to process your job application.

With whom do we share information?

There may be instances in which we share your information with like-minded organizations or for other purposes. We may share your information, for example, in conjunction with your sponsorship of a certain project, as required by law, with law enforcement, to comply with legal processes, to protect our legal rights, to protect the safety or security of a person, or to protect against fraud, criminal acts, or misconduct. We may also share your information with companies that provide us with services, provide services on your behalf, or with a successor legal entity.

Our commitment to data security

To help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. We use industry-accepted tools and techniques such as SSL and two-factor authentication to protect against unauthorized access to our systems. However, no physical or electronic security system is impenetrable and although Atlas Network takes these measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosure of a user’s data or personal information, Atlas Network cannot control internet transmissions and cannot guarantee or warrant that information transmitted to Atlas Network will never be compromised.

Collection of Personal Data from Children

To the extent that Atlas Network is able to determine the age of users by their submissions to, or communications with the website, Atlas Network will not knowingly (a) collect or post information from individuals under thirteen years of age (“Children” or “Child”) without their parent’s or guardian’s verifiable consent, or (b) provide any personally identifying information collected from Children, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever.

Your access to data and your choices

If you registered to receive communications from us and later change your mind, you may ask that your name and contact information be removed from our distribution list. You can send such a request to the email or mailing addresses at the end of this policy.

Your ability to delete personal information may be limited in some circumstances. We may retain information you submit for backups, archiving, prevention of fraud and abuse, analytics, satisfaction of legal obligations, or where we reasonably believe that we have a legitimate reason to do so.
