Last modified: November 14, 2013

Welcome to the privacy policy.  Iris Global and Stop for the One, collectively hereafter referred to as “Stop for the One”, collects information via its websitewww.stopfortheone.org (“ the “Website”).  Please review this Privacy Policy carefully before using the Website. There are many different ways you can use our services – to search for and share information and content, to communicate with other people, or to create new content.

Your access to and use of our Website requires acceptance of the Terms of Use displayed on the Website.  By using the Website, you consent to our practices, as described herein.

Information we collect

We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak.  We collect information in two ways:

  • Information you give us. For example, many of our services require that you create a Stop for the One account. When you do, we’ll ask for personal information, like your name, email address and telephone number. You can also do this using Facebook connect.
  • Information we get from your use of our services. We may collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like when you visit a website. This information includes:

How we use the information we collect

We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.  We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy.

Stop for the One processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.

Information you share

Our services let you share information with others. Once you share information in this way, remember that it becomes public information and it may be indexable by search engines.

Accessing and updating your personal information

Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes.

Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.

Information we share

We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Stop for the One unless one of the following circumstances apply:

  • With your consent
  • We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Stop for the One when we have your consent to do so.
  • For external processing
  • We provide personal information to our affiliates or other trusted businesses or persons to process it for us, based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
  • For legal reasons
  • We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Stop for the One if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
    • meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
    • enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
    • detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
    • protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Stop for the One, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.

We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. Zip code is one example of non-personally identifiable information. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.

PLEASE NOTE: The privacy practices of advertisers and other companies who provide services or advertising through the Website are not covered by this privacy policy. Please contact those companies directly for more information about their privacy practices. If you wish to prevent those companies from setting cookies on your browser, you may set your browser to refuse cookies or to warn you before setting a cookie. Disabling cookies set by companies whose products or services are advertised on this Website should not affect your ability to use this Website.

In the event of a sale or transfer of the assets of our business (an “Acquisition”), we may transfer or sell information, including personally identifiable information to the acquiring entity.  We will include provisions in any selling agreement that the purchaser treat personally identifiable information in the same manner required by this Privacy Policy, inclusive of any amendments to this Privacy Policy.  If Stop for the One becomes involved in an Acquisition, we will provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Exclusions.  This Privacy Policy shall not apply to any unsolicited information (such as comments and feedback) you provide to Stop for the One through the Website and/or that you post to any public areas of the Website, such as comments and discussion boards (collectively, “Unsolicited Information”). All such Unsolicited Information shall be deemed to be non-confidential and Stop for the One shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute such Unsolicited Information to others without limitation or attribution.  You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose Unsolicited Information online, that Unsolicited Information can be collected and used by others.  For example, if you post your email address in comments sections or online forums, you may receive unsolicited messages from others. Stop for the One has no control over the use of personally identifiable information that you voluntarily post in public forums.

Stop for the One reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reject, refuse to post or remove any posting or communication (including email) by you, or to restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to all or any part of the Website at any time, for any or no reason, with or without prior notice, and without liability.

Updating Information.  Stop for the One processes personally identifiable information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy or any applicable service-specific privacy notice. We review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personally identifiable information needed to provide or improve our products and services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personally identifiable information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personally identifiable information whenever necessary.
