We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. schedule a consulting session with a member of our consulting network.
In order to access the subscriber-only portions of this website, a user must first complete the registration process. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the Climate Ready Community support services and offerings.
We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in to the subscriber-only portions of our website with a password more than once, thereby saving you time while on our site.

Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site. You can manage the cookies stored on your computer via your internet browser settings.
We share aggregated demographic information with our partners and foundation funders. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We partner with other professionals in the climate adaptation field to offer our network of consultants. When a user signs up for these services, we will share names and any other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of linked sites.
