We have created this privacy policy (the “Policy”) to inform you of our practices collecting, storing and using the information we collect from you when you use our Website, www.freeourinternet.org (the “Website”).

Information We Collect

  • Personal Information

We may ask you to provide personal information such as your name, address, phone number and e-mail address to offer you certain services in connection with the Website, for example if you contact us for information or sign up to receive e-mails from us.  We do not collect personal information unless you voluntarily provide it to us. If you provide us with your email address, we may use it without further consent to send you non-marketing or administrative emails related to the Website.  In any such emails, we will include information on how to opt-out of receiving emails from us in the future.

  • Non-personal Information

We track navigational data and information about how you use our Website including the type of domain from which you accessed the Internet, the date and time you accessed the Website, the IP address from which you accessed the Website, the type of browser software used to view the Website and how you navigate the Website.

We do this through such things as cookies, internet tags and web beacons. If you do not want to accept cookies from our Website, you can set most Internet browsers to refuse cookies or to notify you when a cookie is sent, but be aware that in such circumstances, certain features of our Website might not function properly.

Additional Disclosure Policies

In addition to the uses we discuss in this policy, we may also share the information we collect from you in the following circumstances:

  • Compliance with Laws. We may disclose your information when we believe disclosure is required to comply with the law, such as in response to a subpoena or court order.  In such instance, we may provide you with advance notice at our sole discretion, but nothing obligates us to provide you with such notice.
  • Safety.  We may disclose your information to prevent damage to our property or to protect our safety or the safety of our users.
  • Transfers and Reorganizations. We may disclose your information in the context of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of our assets, or in the event of insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership.
  • Service Providers.  We may disclose your information to third parties who perform services for us.

Third-Party Websites

We are excited to share information with you, so our Website may contain links to third-party websites.  These other websites have their own privacy statements that govern your activities on those websites, and we are not responsible for the content on or privacy practices of such websites you visit once you navigate away from our Website.  Providing a link to any other websites does not represent our endorsement of such websites or the content posted on such websites.

Third-Party Ad-Serving Companies

From time to time, we may allow third parties to display advertisements on our Website, which may be third-party ad-serving companies or ad networks. Some of these ad networks may place a persistent cookie on the Website that would enable the network to recognize you each time you view an advertisement on our Website. Such activities may enable third-party ad-serving companies or ad networks to collect information about your location, your device and which ads you click on, which may allow those companies or ad networks to deliver targeted advertisements to you. The practices of these third-party ad-serving companies and ad networks are not subject to this Policy, and are instead governed by their own privacy policies. Note that the information these parties collect is non-personal information and cannot specifically identify you.

Social networking Sites and Links

We may allow you to interact with the Website using a third-party social networking website, such as sharing our content or using Facebook’s “Like” button.  Any information we receive from the social networking website to validate your account or otherwise facilitate such services will be subject to this Policy, but information the social networking website receives from such activities will be governed by its own privacy policy.

If we include links to third-party websites on the Website, we are not responsible for your activities or the activities of any such third-party websites once you navigate away from the Website.  Please read the privacy policies of any third-party websites, which govern their use of your information.

International Transfer

The Website is governed by and operated in accordance with United States law. If you are located outside of the United States, you use the Website at your own risk and you consent to the transfer to and processing of your information in the United States.  By using the Website, you acknowledge that we have no obligation to comply with the data protection and other laws of countries other than the United States.

Privacy Rights In Certain Jurisdictions

Residents of some jurisdictions have the right to request a list of all third parties to whom we have disclosed certain personal information during the preceding year for such third parties’ direct marketing purposes.  If you reside in such a jurisdiction and wish to obtain such information from us, please send a letter to P.O. Box 1078, Scarborough, ME 04074.  In all such requests, please use the subject line “Privacy Rights” and include your name, street address, city, state, and zip code.

Security

We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your Private Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Even though we have taken reasonable steps to ensure that your Private Information is not intercepted, accessed, used, or disclosed by unauthorized persons, you should know that we cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information. You assume all responsibility and risk for your use of the Website and the information you post or access through the Website.
