Effective January 7, 2019
The Institute for People, Place and Possibility (IP3), a Missouri not-for-profit organization, has partnered with a number of organizations (“Partners”), to provide Community Commons (the “Commons”), which includes communitycommons.org website and related applications, products, services and websites (collectively, the “Services”), to connect and support changemakers working to create healthy, equitable, sustainable communities.

The Services are not directed at, or marketed to, or intended for users under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly or intentionally collect any information from children under 13 years of age. If we learn that any information was provided to the Commons through any of the Services by a user younger than 13 years of age, we will delete the information immediately.
In order to provide a full range of Services in support of the mission of the Commons, we may collect the following types of information about you:
You can find more information about how we process personal information by referring to the supplementary privacy notices that may be issued for particular Services.
The services contained in this section enable the IP3 to monitor and analyze web traffic and can be used to keep track of User behavior.
Google Analytics (Google Inc.)
Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google utilizes the Data collected to track and examine the use of this Application, to prepare reports on its activities and share them with other Google services.
Google may use the Data collected to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.
Personal Data collected: Cookie and Usage data.
Consistent with the mission of the Commons, we will share your personal information with the other members of the Commons and with other parties and individuals in the following circumstances:
We also may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information. Such information does not identify you individually.
Please contact us as noted above for any additional questions about the management or use of personal data.
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.
When you sign up for a particular Service that requires registration, we ask you to provide personal information. We may combine the information you provide to us with information that we obtain about you through other services or third parties; we do this to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of the Commons and the Services. For certain of the Services, we may give you the opportunity to opt out of combining such information about you. You also can decline to submit personal information to any of our Services or to subsequently opt-out, in which instances we may not be able to provide those Services to you.
When you use the Services, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and for you to be able either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data. Some of our Services may have different procedures to access, correct or delete users’ personal information. We will provide the details for these procedures in the specific privacy notices or FAQs for those Services. If you choose to delete personal information, we may not be able to provide the Services to you.
When you are logged in, you may choose to interact publicly with the Commons Services in the form of clapping for a post, highlighting parts of a post, following other user accounts, sharing links on connected social media accounts, or writing original posts. Where such personal data may be revealed, it is processed on the basis that it is manifestly made public by you, the user. Additional information on the potential consequences of such processing can be found below. If you do not agree to this public usage, do not create an account or use these features of Community Commons Services.
The Commons shares minimal personal data with third-party processors in order to provide the Services. These processors offer at least the same level of data protection as that set out in this statement. This includes the following categories of recipients:
Search engines will index user profiles, public interactions, and any user-generated content. Users may also share links to your content on social media.
The Commons provides Services in conjunction with a number of payment processors, including Paypal and Braintree, through which users may make donations. Those companies acting as payment processors may collect and store personal data related to your billing information and history in order to provide their services and may collect and store personal data and business data to prevent fraud and other abuse.
When you delete your Commons account, Commons deletes your personal data as outlined in this document. However, to delete your payment or billing information, you will need to do so with your payment provider, as Commons only has minimal secure access to those records as needed to provide the services.
Commons posts, blogs, collection content may contain third-party embeds, which may in some cases collect and store personal data. The use of personal data by embedded content providers is not covered by this statement, but by the privacy policies of those sites or services.
The Commons collects and stores personal data about its users to customize suggested content. This includes automated decision-making to promote content tailored to the preferences and interests indicated by the user, and to their browsing history and network interactions.
Commons also filters content for the purposes of fighting and preventing spam, fraud, and other forms of abuse.
By creating an account on the Commons, users may make certain personal data about themselves public and accessible to others on their profile and through network interactions. This may in some cases constitute special category protected data which is considered manifestly made public by the user.
Due to the public nature of information posted on the Commons, it may be possible for third parties to derive identifying personal data from posts, whether by reading, inference, supplemental research, or automated extraction and analysis.
Users are free to use their real name and information, or a pseudonym of their choosing, for their account. Users may also choose to use the service without posting data or engaging in network interactions. However, if you do not agree with and accept the risks of such usage, you may not use the services.
