Our Commitment To Privacy
At SCOUT BANANA, we are founded upon principles of open information balanced with the right to privacy. To help you understand the protections and policies we have in place to safeguard your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
The Information We Collect:
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the SCOUT BANANA website. On some pages, you can post comments, make requests, apply for positions and register to receive information. The types of personal information collected at these pages are mainly biographical and/or purpose-specific, including but not limited to:
The Way We Use Information:
We use the information you provide about yourself only to complete the tasks described at the point of information collection. We do not share this information with outside parties without your explicit consent.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive and to provide information about SCOUT BANANA. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
You can register with our website after joining SCOUT BANANA as a staff writer or for other site usage/administration purposes.
We use a Google-provided, non-identifying tracking cookie that provides aggregate site-usage information. We collect this data to better design our website and create goals for the effective delivery of information across SCOUT BANANA’s organizational structure. For example, we may tell a chapter that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of individuals visited from that chapter’s location, but we will not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
To 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 online.
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to solicit information from anyone under 13.
You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by contacting us with your request. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information.
You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error.
To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
Should you have other questions or concerns about these privacy policies, please contact us.
