Join the 1,458,881 supporters of the Stop Global Warming Virtual March, and become part of the movement to demand our leaders freeze and reduce carbon dioxide emissions now. We are all contributors to global warming and we all need to be part of the solution.

The Stop Global Warming Virtual March is a non-political effort to declare that global warming is here now and it’s time to act.
This is a movement about change, as individuals, as a country, and as a global community.

STOPGLOBALWARMING.ORG PRIVACY POLICY

Protecting your personal information is important to us. The privacy policy below details the measures taken by Stopglobalwarming.org (“Stopglobalwarming”) to protect your privacy in connection with your use of the site.

If you do not agree to the terms of this privacy policy, please do not provide Stopglobalwarming with any information and do not use the site. Your continued use of the site after the privacy policy has been modified will signify your acceptance of the changes for information gathered after the date of the change.

Privacy Policy

The types of individual user information collected in the registration process may include your name, email address, and other personally identifiable information (“PII”) volunteered by you. Stopglobalwarming collects PII when you register with Stopglobalwarming, when you visit site pages and when you deliver communications to the Site. Stopglobalwarming may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business associates or otherwise. Without limitation, information collected, including PII, may be used by Stopglobalwarming for internal research purposes, marketing, promotions and public relations, subject only to the terms of our privacy policy. Stopglobalwarming will not disclose, transfer, sell or otherwise communicate your PII to any third party, other than Stopglobalwarming’s parent, subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of (i) their employees or (ii) vendors and contractors, in each case, operating under confidentiality obligations and subject to Stopglobalwarming’s privacy policy, unless you give Stopglobalwarming permission to do so, except as set forth in this privacy policy. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Stopglobalwarming will share PII with another organization with which we have partnered for the “Virtual March on Washington” if you were led to the Site through a communication or other means employed by or on behalf of such organization (each, a “Partnering Organization”). Additionally, Stopglobalwarming may disclose any information you provide if required to do so by law or pursuant to a request by law enforcement or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with the legal process; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of Stopglobalwarming or third parties; or (3) act in an emergency to protect someone’s safety or legal rights (“Mandatory Disclosures”). As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or change our name or form of entity, and, depending upon the transaction, your personal information may be one of the transferred assets; provided, however, we will not sell or transfer PII except subject to the terms of our privacy policy. For instance, in the event that Stopglobalwarming is acquired by another company, your PII may be part of the assets transferred to the acquiring party. Stopglobalwarming will notify you before PII about you becomes subject to a different privacy policy. The collected information may be provided in the aggregate to third parties, including potential business partners and advertisers, but this information is not linked to any PII before it is disclosed unless Stopglobalwarming has obtained your consent.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

Our Site targets an audience that is over the age of 18 and some content may not be appropriate for all ages. Parental supervision is recommended. We respect the privacy of children, and do not collect any more personal information than is reasonably necessary for them to participate in the “Virtual March on Washington.” We do not share children’s PII with anyone other then those who provide support for the internal operations of the website, our agents, and a Partnering Organization. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 13 and believe that he or she has disclosed PII to us, please contact us at the following e-mail address: sgw@stopglobalwarming.org. Upon request, the parent or guardian of a child under 13 may review and request the deletion of such child’s PII, as well as refuse to permit the further collection or use of such PII.
