Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was posted on December 15, 2021. We are committed to modeling best practices as global privacy standards continue to evolve, and we will roll out additional updates from time-to-time with the goal of increasing transparency and strengthening consent across all of our systems, for all of our supporters worldwide. If you have questions or feedback regarding this process, please reach out to us at privacy@noonautics.org.

Our Privacy Policy explains why we collect particular information through our website and how we work to protect your personal privacy. Noonautics Inc. (“Noonautics”) is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization, and with the many visitors a month to noonautics.org, there is safety in numbers. In all cases, Noonautics is a strong supporter of individual privacy and we do everything we can to safeguard information about our visitors. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy” or “Policy”) describes how we collect, use, and share information that can reasonably be used to identify a natural person directly or indirectly (“Personal Information”). It applies to Personal Information collected by us or provided to us through any means except for the following information:

  • Information about our employees, contractors, agents, and job applicants.
  • Information collected from individuals who volunteer for Noonautics-sponsored clinical research projects.
  • Information about organizations for which we serve as the fiscal sponsor.

In order to fully understand your rights, we encourage you to read this Privacy Policy. Noonautics reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time simply by updating this page. Any such change will be effective immediately upon posting, unless otherwise stated. If we make material changes to the way we collect or process personal data, we will send a notice via email, or post an update on pages that are directly impacted by the change.

To demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, this Privacy Policy notifies you of:

  1. What personally identifiable information is collected through the Site;
  2. How such information is used;
  3. With whom your information may be shared;
  4. What security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control;
  5. How you can correct any inaccuracies in your information, and request to be forgotten.

Questions regarding this statement should be directed to Noonautics by sending an email to privacy@noonautics.org. Please reference this Privacy Policy in your subject line.

Legal Disclaimer

Your privacy is very important to us. To protect your information, we have adopted this privacy policy. The Policy applies to all information you submit in connection with your access to and/or use of the Site. By visiting the Site and using any of the Site’s information or Services, as defined in the Terms of Use, you acknowledge that you have read, and agree to be bound by, the terms and conditions, representations, warranties, disclaimers and policies published on the Site — including but not limited to the provisions of this Legal Disclaimer, the Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, and Donor Privacy Policy, all of which are expressly incorporated here by reference. Any capitalized terms not defined in our Privacy Policy, have the meaning as specified in our Terms of Use accessible at https://noonautics.org/terms-of-use/.

Information Covered by this Policy

The information that we collect, described herein, may be stored and processed in the United States. It also may be stored and processed in countries in which we or our agents maintain facilities. By using the Site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country, even if data protection laws may be different in the other locations, as compared to the country where you reside. The Site makes no representation or warranty on any duty to permanently store information you may provide. By using the Site and providing us with information, you waive any claims that may arise under your own or any other local or national laws, rules or regulations or international treaties.

The Privacy Policy is limited in scope. Specifically, it only applies to information collected through the Site and through any related websites that the Site owns and controls. The Privacy Policy does not apply to websites owned or operated by third parties. The third-party websites that are not covered by the Privacy Policy include, but are not limited to, websites that are accessible from the Site, for instance, if you click on a link displayed on the Site and are then transferred to a third-party website. Unless explicitly stated, the Site does not have ownership or control over those other third-party websites—or any other third-party website.

Consequently, it is your responsibility to ascertain whether you are visiting a website outside the Site, and, if so, what privacy policy (if any) applies. Unless explicitly stated, the Site makes no representations or warranties about any third-party websites, including but not limited to their ability to protect any personal information they might collect from you. You should assume that if you click on a link found on the Site, and are directed to another website, it is not owned or controlled by Noonautics.

This includes, but is not limited to, websites accessible from links found on the Site that contain pictures or information about merchandise (including but not limited to Noonautics-related merchandise such as clothing) or other material displayed on the Site, which can be further viewed or ordered from that other, third-party website. In addition to assuming that such links are associated with third-party websites that are not under the ownership or control of Noonautics, you should also assume that the Privacy Policy does not apply to them. Because, as explained, the Privacy Policy is limited in scope and does not apply to those third-party websites. You should review the privacy policies adopted by those third-parties, in relation to those third-party websites, to ensure that you know what information is being collected by them, and for what it is being used. Again, the Site makes no representations or warranties whatsoever about those third-party websites, including but not limited to their privacy policies.

Information from Third Parties

We may obtain your Personal Information via third-parties. For example:

  • When you donate to us via an online tool and you have given your consent to process the donation, the fundraising platform that processes your donation provides us with information about you and about how the donation was made. Please check their privacy policies when you give them your information. 
  • The email platform we use to communicate with you collects information on (i) who opened the email and (ii) what content was clicked. This allows us to determine which stories are popular and to better tailor our communications in the future. The data is aggregated and not used for personal identification.

If you contact us through our website or directly email us, we usually collect your:

  • name
  • contact information (e.g., email address, telephone number)
  • content of communications (e.g., the content of an email or any information you provide to us in your comments or voluntary feedback forms.)

Information We Collect When You Use Our Website

When you use our websites, we automatically collect usage information which may include:

  • information about your browser and operating system
  • referring and exit web pages and URLs
  • time and day you visit our websites
  • pages of our websites that you visit
  • your device characteristics

How We Use Certain Information Collected from Our Website

Internet Protocol (IP) Address

We collect an Internet Protocol (IP) address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use to help us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

As with almost all websites, temporary log files are kept which identify some information about our visitors, including the IP addresses of machines that access the site. Our Web logs are not available to the public. These logs allow Site administrators to see how many people visit the Site, how many pages have been accessed, which pages are accessed most frequently, and which links are leading people to the site.

Standard logs (including ours) also track which pages are visited by each IP address. This information is important for us to have because it allows us to catch “denial of service” attacks (for example, individual computers accessing hundreds of thousands of pages per day). We take great care to make sure this information cannot be used to compromise the privacy and security of our visitors.

Use of Tracking and Cookies

We automatically obtain certain information when you use our websites. However, Noonautics endeavors to not track the activity of our supporters in any personally identifiable way. 

Our Site may use “cookies” to enhance your experience while using our Site. Cookies are pieces of information that some Web sites transfer to the computer that is browsing that Web site and are used for record-keeping purposes at many Web sites. Use of cookies makes Web-surfing easier by performing certain functions such as saving your passwords, your personal preferences regarding your use of the particular Web site and to make sure you don’t see the same ad repeatedly. The use of cookies is an industry standard.

Your browser is probably set to accept cookies. If you would prefer not to receive cookies, you can alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our Site (in particular our Webstore) will not function properly when you view them.

  • process and acknowledge your donations to Noonautics

    • Our website uses “sharing buttons” which share our web pages to social media platforms. Please be aware that when you use these buttons, social media platforms may track these shares through your accounts.

Who Has Access to Your Personal Information

Our trained staff, Noonautics-controlled affiliates and subsidiaries and organizations that partner with us have access to your Personal Information as required to conduct our operations. We also share data with vendors and, in limited circumstances, with third parties.

  • Trained Staff
    • The information we hold about you is accessible by trained staff, volunteers, and contractors. We regularly review who has access to the information and do comprehensive checks on any contractors before we work with them
  • Group Organizations
    • We share Personal Information with our fully-owned subsidiaries as reasonably necessary to pursue our mission in a manner that is consistent with your expectations. 
  • Partner Organizations
    • We may share your information with other like-minded organizations that partner with us and support our fundraising efforts. For example, when you donate money for a program sponsored by partner organization, we may share information about your donation with that organization. However, we will not sell or exchange under any circumstances your payment information with any organization other than the service providers that help us process your donations or payments. We endeavor to carefully choose our partners, and expect them to respect your preferences just like we do.
  • Vendors
    • We use other companies to help us manage and store Personal Information, and to carry out certain activities on our behalf.  These may include service providers that (a) conduct research and analytics; (b) create content; (c) host our websites; (d) handle donations; (e) maintain our databases, or (f) otherwise provide support to us. 
  • Other Third Parties
    • We may be required to disclose your Personal Information to the government or to third parties pursuant to mandatory court orders, subpoenas, and similar requests. We may also disclose your Personal Information when we otherwise believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate in connection with activities that violate the law or may expose us to liability.
    • We may transfer Personal Information in the event of a change of control. For example, your Personal Information could be shared with third parties if we were to merge with a different organization or in connection with transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings.
    • In any event, we will endeavor to ensure that any Personal Information transferred by us to third parties is processed in a manner consistent with this Privacy Notice.  

How Long We Keep Personal Information

We retain Personal Information only for as long as necessary for the purposes for which the data was collected, except where necessary to: meet our legal obligations; to establish, exercise, or defend potential legal claims; or to pursue other legitimate interests.

If you request to receive no further contact from us, we will keep some basic information about you on our suppression list in order to avoid sending you unwanted materials in the future.

How to Remove Identifying Information

If you have previously submitted information to our Site and would like to have your name or contact information removed from the submission, please email privacy@noonautics.org. We are also happy to delete your information from our database, in accordance with the “right to be forgotten.”


What Security Measures We Use

We use appropriate technical and organizational measures and precautions in order to protect your information and to prevent the loss, misuse, or alteration of your Personal Information. While we work to keep the information about you safe, we cannot guarantee its security.

All information provided to Noonautics is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our Site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Noonautics. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.

If you ever discover inaccuracies in our data or in your personally identifiable information (“PII”), or if you become aware of your information or PII being made available online without authorization, we urge you to notify us immediately. In the unlikely event an unauthorized third-party compromises the Site’s security measures, the Site will not be responsible for any damages directly or indirectly caused by an unauthorized third party’s ability to view, use or disseminate such information. Your use of this site is an acknowledgement that Noonautics shall not be responsible or liable for any dissemination of your information that results from your disclosure of such information to any third party.


Links to Other Web Sites

Our Site may contain links to other Web sites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another Web site for which the Noonautics has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may be different than ours.
