Site PRIVACY POLICY

Effective on Jan. 5, 2012

This privacy statement describes how http://www.akrna.com collects and uses the personal information you provide on our Web site.

Your privacy is very important to us. We want to make your experience on the Internet as enjoyable and rewarding as possible, and we want you to use the Internet’s vast array of information, tools, and opportunities with complete confidence.

We have created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy and security.

We request that you read this Privacy Policy carefully.

This Privacy Policy describes how A.K.R.N.A collects information from all end users of our Internet services (the “Services”)-those who access some of our Services but do not have accounts (“Visitors”). Donation accounts are directly processed by United Charitable Programs on a secured donation page specifically for A.K.R.N.A’s program.

AKRNA – Antakarana Co-Creation Learning Project (A.K.R.N.A) is a project of United Charitable Programs (UCP), a registered 501(c) (3) public charity.  Our tax ID # is 20-4286082. Donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent as allowed by law.  All donation transactions are directly handled on a secured site by UCP. For UCP’s commitment to protecting your privacy, use this link for direct access to their Privacy Policy.

A.K.R.N.A is program managed by UCP and is subject to all policies as required. Our site collects information in different ways from Visitors and Donors.

We use this collected information primarily to provide a customized experience as you use our Products and Services and do not share this information with third parties. Information collected during any registration process is used to manage each person’s account (such as for sending newsletters). This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise. We do not sell, rent or exchange your email under any circumstances.

Responses to Email Inquiries:
When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to our company, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive. A.K.R.N.A does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party.

Voluntary Customer Surveys:
We may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We encourage visitors to our site to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of products and services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary.

We may take the information we receive from individuals responding to our Customer Surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses of other participants we may have, to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services and communications to you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated, non-personally identifying information may be shared with third parties.

Public Forums & Blogs:
Our Web site offers publicly accessible blogs or community forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them.

Please remember that any information you may disclose in any Member Directory, or other public areas of our Web sites or the Internet, becomes public information. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in these public areas.

Additional Policy Info:
Our Web site may include Widgets, which are interactive mini-programs that run on our site to provide specific services from another company (e.g. displaying the news, opinions, music, etc). Personal information, such as your email address, may be collected through the Widget. Cookies may also be set by the Widget to enable it to function properly. Information collected by this Widget is governed by the privacy policy of the company that created it.

Revisions to This Policy: A.K.R.N.A reserves the right to revise, amend, or modify this policy, our Terms Of Service agreement, and our other policies and agreements at any time and in any manner, by updating this posting. Your use of this site after such changes are implemented constitutes your acknowledgement and acceptance of these changes.
