Our Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes the privacy policies and practices of South Bay Clean Creeks Coalition (SBCCC) and its location-based services (the "Services").

Information We Collect from the Web Site.
When visitors come to the website, we collect the visitor's IP address (the unique set of numbers used to identify the visitor's computer), and his or her registered domain or home server. We also collect information pertaining to the visitor's operating system, browser version, referring site, and keywords used to locate the Web site.

SBCCC, its contractors and other third parties that help SBCCC provide the Services or the Web site ("SBCCC agents") may use "cookies" to improve visitors' experience at the Website. A "cookie" is a small file placed on a Website visitor's computer hard drive that identifies the computer and data about the visit so that, when the visitor returns to the site, the site recognizes the visitor, which allows SBCCC to tailor its site to the visitor. Cookies do not contain personally identifiable information but may be linked to Personal Information that visitors provide to SBCCC.

How Information Is Secured
SBCCC uses a variety of physical, technical, and procedural safeguards to guard against loss, misuse, and alteration of Personal and Location Information. For example, access to Personal Information is limited to SBCCC and contractor personnel who need the information to provide the Services; and SBCCC uses and requires its contractors to use technical measures to guard against unauthorized access to Personal and Location Information. SBCCC requires vistors to use user identification and passwords to access Personal and Location Information. Similarly, when visitors to the Web site conduct payment card transactions, such as donations, with SBCCC, SBCCC uses procedures required by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.

SBCCC cannot, however, guarantee the security of any Personal or Location Information, or information collected from the Website. Despite SBCCC’s efforts to secure such information, it may be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by a breach of SBCCC’s physical, technical, and procedural safeguards. Customers use the Services and visitors use the Web site at their own risk. If SBCCC learns that a Customer's Personal or Location Information has been disclosed to an unauthorized person, SBCCC will attempt to notify the Customer.

How SBCCC Uses Customers' and Web site Visitors' Information
SBCCC uses each Customer's Personal and Location Information to provide Services to that Customer. SBCCC does not collect information of any kind other than to provide such Services. SBCCC does not currently share, sell, or rent any Personal or Location Information or information collected from the Web site to any third parties, other than to SBCCC’s agents, and does not intend to do so in the future.

SBCCC may share Personal Information collected from the Web site with SBCCC’s agents, corporate affiliates, or advisors who help IVSBCCC operate and improve its business. SBCCC has entered into written agreements with its agents, corporate affiliates, and advisors to which it discloses Personal Information collected from the Website that requires them to adhere to pertinent provisions of this Privacy Policy and the Safe Harbor Principles issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce, which are available at http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/SH_Privacy.asp. SBCCC also prohibits its agents, corporate affiliates, and advisors from using any information disclosed to them by SBCCC for purposes other than implementing SBCCC’s instructions.

SBCCC may use Aggregate Data to analyze how Customers use the Services to determine ways in which SBCCC can improve the Services and to consider offering new services to Customers. SBCCC may also use information collected from the Website to analyze traffic to the Website to determine how to improve the site.

SBCCC may use or disclose Personal information collected from the Web site: to comply with applicable laws; to protect the rights and property of SBCCC or others; to protect a person's safety; to prevent abuse; as evidence in legal proceedings; to cooperate with properly authorized law enforcement investigations; and in response to subpoenas from third parties. SBCCC will use good faith efforts to promptly notify a Customer of any subpoena that seeks any of the Customer's Personal or Location Information to enable the Customer to seek to quash the subpoena. Finally, SBCCC may disclose or sell Personal Information and information collected from the Website as an asset in conjunction with the sale of SBCCC to a third party or in conjunction with the sale of a portion of SBCCC’s assets.

Children's Information
SBCCCrecognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of children. SBCCC will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children. Personal Information collected from a Customer must be information from an adult. Consistent with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, the Web site is not directed to children under the age of thirteen. When a visitor to the Web site discloses information on the Website, the visitor represents that he or she is an adult. If a child visits the Web site and provides his or her personally identifiable information, SBCCC will delete that child's information from its records at the request of the child's parent or guardian.

Information Collected by Others
This Privacy Policy addresses only the policy and procedures of SBCCC. SBCCC is not responsible for the privacy policies of third parties, including but not limited to those whose websites may be linked to the SBCCC Web site.

SBCCC has self-assessed that its Privacy Policy conforms to EU Safe Harbor principles regarding personal information received from the EU.

If a Customer believes that his or her rights as described in this Privacy Policy have been violated by SBCCC, the visitor should email us at info@sbcleancreeks.com. SBCCCwill attempt to resolve visitor complaints as quickly as possible.

If SBCCC is unable to resolve a Customer's complaint regarding an alleged violation of this Privacy Policy, the Customer may file a complaint with the Data Protection Authority.

Amendments to this Privacy Policy
SBCCC reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change, modify, add to, or remove any portion of this Privacy Policy, in whole or in part, at any time. SBCCC will include such Amendments on the version of this Policy that is posted on SBCCC’s Web site (www.sbcleancreeks.com) and will notify visitors that the Policy has been amended. Amendments to the Policy will take effect immediately upon being posted to the Web site. Customer's continued use of the Services after SBCCC posts an Amendment constitutes visitor's acceptance of and consent to the Amendment. If a visitor does not accept such an Amendment, Customer must notify SBCCC within 30 days after SBCCC notifies Customer of the Amendment that Customer has elected to terminate the Services rather than accept the Amendment.
