We understand your privacy is important. This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes how we collect, use, store, process, and share your information in relation to your access and use of our website, (the “Service”). Unless indicated otherwise, this Policy does not apply to third party products or services or the practices of companies that we do not own or control.


By visiting, accessing, or using the Service, you expressly consent to the collection, use, storage, transfer, processing, and disclosure of your information, including personally identifiable information, as described in this Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THIS POLICY, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE ANY PART OF THE SERVICE.


The Tiller Foundation (the “Foundation” or “we”) is headquartered in Pine, Arizona, and is an Arizona nonprofit corporation. If you are a resident of the European Union (“EU”), The Tiller Foundation is the controller of your personal data for purposes of EU data protection law.


1. Information Collection


(a) General. When you visit the Service, you can browse without submitting any personally identifiable information about yourself. We will, however, receive and store some non-personally identifiable information about you, as described below. In order to participate in certain functionalities, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information. “Personally identifiable information” is information that would allow us to actually identify you, such as your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, or any other information the Service collects that is defined as personal or personally identifiable information under applicable law.


(b) Automatically Collected Information. Similar to other websites and services, we may collect some information automatically and store it in log files. We may use third party analytics providers to collect this information about the Service. This collection may include, but is not limited to: your IP address, browser type and language, device type, referring/exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, cookie information, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of each request you make. We collect this information in order to better understand our users, to operate more efficiently, to promote our services, and to improve the quality of the Service. We may automatically collect information using various tracking technologies, such as cookies and web beacons.


i. Cookies. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a computer or smartphone for record-keeping purposes. Our third-party analytics providers use cookies to record information about your activities while using the Service and to “remember” you when you return to the Service. Some cookies remain on your computer or device until you delete them. Others, like session ID cookies, expire when you close your browser. You may set your browser or device setting to attempt to reject cookies and you may still use the Service, however, certain features of the Service may not be available if your browser or device does not accept cookies. See subsection (d) below for more information on how the Service may respond to your browser or device settings. We do not control the use of cookies by third parties.


ii. Web Beacons. Web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, or single-pixel gifs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track the online movements of web or mobile app users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a computer’s hard drive or your smartphone, web beacons are small graphics that are about the size of the period at the end of the sentence that are embedded invisibly on web pages or in HTML-based emails. Our third-party analytics providers may place web beacons on our website that track what other websites you visit (both before and after visiting our website). Our third-party analytics providers use information obtained from web beacons to help us improve the Service. We do not control the use of web beacons by third parties.


(c) Third Party Analytics Providers. We use third parties to help us operate and improve the Service. In doing so, we may share with these third parties non-personally identifiable information about users’ use of the Service. These third-party providers also use tracking technologies to collect information about you and your device. We do not control information collected by third parties and are not responsible for their use of that information.


(d) “Do Not Track” Settings. Because we track Service usage information through the use of cookies, web beacons, and other tracking mechanisms, your selection of the “Do Not Track” option provided by your browser or smartphone may not have any effect on our collection of information via tracking technologies. The only way to completely opt out of the collection of any information through cookies or other tracking technology is to actively manage the settings on your browser and smartphone to delete and disable cookies and other tracking/recording tools. However, not all tracking technologies can be controlled by browsers; unique aspects of your browser might be recognizable even if you disable a tracking technology. Not all settings will necessarily last or be effective; even if a setting is effective for one purpose, data still may be collected for another. Even if one website observes a “Do Not Track” signal, that website usually will not be able to control other websites.


2. Information Use


(a) General. We will use your personally identifiable information to operate, manage, and administer the Service; to provide you with support or a more personalized experience; to communicate with you; to monitor Service usage; to improve the Service or develop and test new products, services, websites, or applications. We may also use personally identifiable information to resolve disputes; to detect and protect against errors, fraud, and illegal activity; to assist law enforcement; or for any other purpose described in this Policy or described to you at the time of collection.


(b) Communications. We may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your inquiries or requests (including support requests). You may not opt out of Service-related emails which are not promotional in nature. We may also send you promotional emails to notify you about products or services that may be of interest to you. If you would like to stop receiving promotional messages from us or third parties, please click on the opt-out link in any non-Service-related email you receive. Even if you opt out, you will continue to receive Service-related communications from us.


(c) Use of Non-Personally Identifiable and Aggregate Information. We may use non-personally identifiable information and aggregate information for any lawful purpose, including, but not limited to, analyzing trends, managing and administering the Service, tracking users’ movements, to create new products or services, or to improve our business and the Service. In addition, we may share aggregate statistical information with our business partners. To create aggregate information, we remove certain information, such as your name, and combine the resulting information with similar information from other users of the Service. We may also combine your non-personally identifiable information and aggregate information with other non-personally identifiable information and aggregate information collected from other sources. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that aggregate information is never associated with you or your personally identifiable information.

(a) Affiliated Entities and Service Providers. We may disclose your information, including personally identifiable information, to any affiliated entity or organization, business partner, and to agents and service providers that provide support for the Service (such as analytics service providers) to help us operate the Service, improve our business or the Service, and to provide services to us. Use of information by affiliated entities and service providers will be subject to this Policy or an agreement at least as restrictive as this Policy.

(d) Disclaimer. We cannot ensure that all of your personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Policy. For example, a third party may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or other users of the Service may abuse or misuse your personally identifiable information. No transmission of data over the internet can be 100% secure. Transmitting personal information is done at your own risk.
