The Animals & Society Institute (ASI) respects the privacy of our users. We also understand that information security can be a confusing topic. Below we explain what data we and our authorized third parties collect, how and if it is stored, how it is used, and how we protect it. If you have any questions about this policy please free to contact us via this form.
Additionally, ASI and/or authorized third party applications collect information from you when you take certain actions on our site including, but not limited to: placing an order in our store, joining as a member, making a donation, subscribing to our newsletters etc. The information collected, as well as by whom it is collected, will depend on the nature of the action taken. Below is a partial list of the most common ways in which ASI and/or authorized third parties collect information:
External Links – ASI’s website includes links to external websites and may also include links to third party offers, products, and services. While we do our best to insure that the links leading away from our site are reputable and safe, ASI is not responsible for the content or the privacy practices of external websites. Your use of any linked website is solely at your own risk. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
Email Privacy – The Council of Nonprofits does not share, trade, provide, sell, or rent email addresses to anyone outside the organization with the following exceptions:
- In order to facilitate the discounted journal subscriptions that are a benefit of ASI membership (Scholar, Student, Professional, and Individual) ASI will, upon request of the publisher, share a list of eligible members. These lists are limited to names, email addresses, and membership expiration dates. ASI only shares these lists for the exclusive purpose of determining discount eligibility for journal subscriptions and does not allow the publishers to use these lists in any other way or for any other purpose.
- ASI uses third party printers to communicate with our supporters via postal mail. When preparing mailings, a list of names of ASI supporters, donors, members, or other individuals with whom ASI already has some kind of relationship (e.g. from a store purchase) will be shared with the printer so that they may complete the maling. These lists are limited to names and postal addresses. Occasionally ASI may use multiple lists that are segmented by various donation data, but ASI will never share actual donation information (amounts, dates, etc.) with our printer. ASI only shares these lists for the exclusive purpose of sending postal mail and does not allow our printers to use these lists in any other way or for any other purpose.
Right To Your Data – In compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act, the European Union General Data Protection Regulation, and other similar legislation, ASI acknowledges the right of users, including but not limited to: members, donors, newsletter subscribers, and purchasers, of the ASI website, to request access to, removal of, and/or update their personal information as stored in ASI databases. Please contact ASI directly to inquire about your data.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance – We are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act), we do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. Our website, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older.
