Privacy Policy

Modification Date: August 8, 2020
Effective Date: August 8, 2020

Hey there! Jess, Jin, Marco, and Rie here. We’re the humans behind Activist Teahouse and like you, we care about how personal information and data are used online, so we want to make sure that you know that (1) we totally respect your privacy, and (2) you know exactly how your data is used here at Activist-Teahouse.com and our online networks.

Here you’ll find the privacy practices we use on the website and any affiliated mediums (email list, Instagram, Zoom). Please read the entire Privacy Policy to make sure you understand exactly how your personal data is used.

A. What Personal Data Do We Collect From You?

Personal data is any information that can be used to identify you, including your name, IP address, and email address. We collect, process, and maintain personal data from you in the following ways:

(1) Opt-In to Email List: Your name and email address.

(2.) Google Forms: Your name, email address, and the voluntary information submitted by you to a given form (including surveys, questionnaires, feedback, etc.)

(3.) Direct Email: Your name, email address, and the voluntary information submitted by you on the email.

B. What Is The Purpose of Processing Your Personal Data?

We collect the information above to provide you with updates on the Activist Teahouse project, as well as any resources, events, and educational opportunities related to our goals as a community. You can read about our goals, covered by The 5 Pillars, on the About Page.

C. What Legal Basis Do We Have For Collecting and Processing Your Information?

Our legal basis for each of the ways we process your data is as follows.

(1.) Opt-In To Email List: We will ask for your consent first.

(2.) Google Forms: We have an allowed legitimate interest in providing a better experience for you at Activist Teahouse, and use this information to create a stronger and more effective action-based community, and may use general data from surveys, questionnaires, etc. for educational and promotion purposes.

(3.) Direct Email: We have an allowed legitimate interest in providing a response to your questions and need to use your data to do so. We also use this information to create a stronger and more effective action-based community, and may use specific content from email conversations for educational and promotion purposes only after obtaining your explicit consent via email or social media.

Note that you may have submitted your data into one or more of these various mediums. Unless explicitly stated, we do not use data that you submit through one medium for another medium with a different purpose: for example, we do not export your email information from a private email conversation unless explicitly allowed to do so.

We also do not share, swap, or sell email lists to others or even within members within our own organization: for example, a founder of Activist Teahouse may also maintain their own data and email lists but the Activist Teahouse data and email list is stored and kept strictly separate. At no time will your email and data be used for purposes other than Activist Teahouse activities.

D. Who Has Access To The Data We Collect?

We process and access your data as described above through the help of third parties that have the digital infrastructure that we do not have on our own. These include payment processors, social media management tools, and other products that we use and are absolutely required to run our business. These include:

  • Website management services: LeadPages.com
  • Email services: Google.com, Gmail.com, and Mailchimp.com
  • Third-party freelance services for website, branding design, community management and other services on a consulting or volunteer basis.

These third parties have made contractual promises to not use your personal data in any manner we do not authorize.

E. Cookies and Similar Technologies

This tracking is done to provide you with ease of use such as preventing multiple pop-ups that you have already seen before, as well as provide us with information on how people move about the site, what is of interest to them and what is not, and incidental items shown on Google Analytics such as what percentage of users access the site from a personal computer versus a mobile phone. You may block most cookies by adjusting your browser settings as well.

F. How Long Do We Keep Your Data?

We keep your personal data indefinitely for Activist Teahouse due to the nature of our non-profit operations. At any time you may opt-out of our email lists or email us at activist.teahouse@gmail.com to remove your data, at which time your data will be completely deleted from our systems.

G. Your Right To Ask For Corrections, Erasure, And Other Actions

We want you to have control over your data.

If we suffer a data breach, we will provide you with the appropriate breach notification given jurisdiction and FBI requirements.
