NeedsList PBC ("NeedsList") operates the NeedsList platform. It is NeedsList's policy to respect your privacy regarding any  information we may collect while operating our website.


WEBSITE VISITORS
Like most website operators, NeedsList collects non-personally-identifying  information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring  site, and the date and time of each visitor request. NeedsList's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how NeedsList's visitors use its website. NeedsList may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website or how needs are being met. NeedsList also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. NeedsList only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and  disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to NeedsList's websites choose to interact with NeedsList in ways that require NeedsList to gather personally-identifying  information. The amount and type of information that NeedsList gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at NeedsList  to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with NeedsList are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, NeedsList collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with NeedsList. NeedsList does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.  Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control, including but not limited to any third party websites, services and applications, such as Facebook ("Third Party Services") that you elect to access through NeedsList. While we attempt to facilitate access only to those Third Party Services that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of those Third Party Services. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third Party Services you access.

AGGREGATED STATISTICS
NeedsList may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. NeedsList may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, NeedsList does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
NeedsList discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on NeedsList's behalf or to provide services available at NeedsList's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using NeedsList's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. NeedsList will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, NeedsList discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when NeedsList believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of NeedsList, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an NeedsList website and have supplied your email address, NeedsList may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with NeedsList and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. NeedsList takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
