Net Impact Austin is committed to your right to privacy and to the ethical use of information online. We adhere strictly to the following privacy practices.
No release of personally identifiable information to third parties
We do not rent, sell, or exchange personally identifiable information with other individuals or organizations. If you "opt in" upon becoming a Net Impact Austin member to share your contact information with our network, it will be shared with leaders within our network to use in planning local Net Impact events, and it will be available for other members to contact you.
We request information from the user on our registration form. Here a user must provide contact information (like name and email address) and location information (like city, state). This information is used for registration purposes only.
We do collect "aggregate data," that is, group data with no personal identifiers
We use this aggregate data to help us understand how the site is being used and to improve its usability, and to enhance the quality and availability of products and services we offer. We also, with your explicit permission, use aggregate data from online surveys you choose to fill out for research and publication purposes. Once again, this is aggregate data only; individuals or firms are not identified in any such research or publication.
How we use the information:
Personally identifiable information you choose to give us will only be used to:
• Process membership applications
• Process billing and orders for products/services you choose to purchase on our site
• Send you product and member-related information if you elect to receive it
• Request survey data for membership analysis and information gathering
The Net Impact site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy policies of other sites. We encourage our users to be aware of when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each site they visit. Net Impact's privacy statement applies only to information collected by our website.
