EcoGeneration Privacy Policy

Please note: EcoGeneration.org is intended for use within the United States and is not GDPR compliant for users in the European Union.

At EcoGeneration, accessible from www.ecogeneration.org, your privacy is incredibly important to us. We would NEVER sell or intentionally give your information to anyone. EVER. We value your trust and your support and we value your privacy. 

If you send donations via check and request that we do not share your information. We will not share it. Period. If you donate anonymously online, we will not share your information. 

That being said, using the internet pretty much means that you are being tracked - all the time - wherever you are. We use cookies on this site to make sure that everything is working, and that you are seeing the information you need to get the most out of this site. We collect names, contact information, and payment information you give us to get you the products, services and information you request. We use 3rd party apps to help us do each of these things - and have no control over how they use your information. 

 

Below we detail the types of information that is collected and recorded by EcoGeneration and how we use it to the very best of our knowledge.

If you have additional questions or require more information about our Privacy Policy, do not hesitate to contact us:
