MIT Climate CoLab respects your privacy. We do not collect personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily provide it, such as when you register for a member profile, provide email contact information to send feedback to us, subscribe to the Climate CoLab newsletter, or respond to a survey. If you voluntarily provide your email address or other contact information, we might also use it to inform you of changes to the Climate CoLab or to survey you about your use or opinion of Climate CoLab. At your request, we will remove your contact information from our files.
We do not make your contact information or any other personally identifiable information available to anyone outside the Climate CoLab or its service providers (who use the information only for authorized Climate CoLab purposes) unless we are legally required to do so.
In addition to the above, we collect certain anonymous (non-personally identifiable) information to help us improve the Climate CoLab site and to evaluate the access and use of Climate CoLab materials and the impact of Climate CoLab.
We collect information you provide about your use of and satisfaction with Climate CoLab through email you send us and through Climate CoLab surveys, whether or not you voluntarily include your contact information.
We may use web analysis tools that are built into the Climate CoLab site to measure and collect anonymous session information.
We also use "cookies" to improve your Climate CoLab web experience and to collect anonymous information about how you use Climate CoLab. However, cookies are not required for Climate CoLab use. If your browser is configured not to accept cookies, you will still be able to access Climate CoLab and its content.
When we report information about Climate CoLab access, use, and impact, we report aggregate, non-personally identifiable data. Occasionally, we report quoted feedback from users. We do not attribute feedback to specific individuals unless we obtain permission to use that person's name along with the feedback.
