The Shed Privacy Policy

The Shed, Inc. (“The Shed,” “We,” ”Us,” or “Our”) is strongly committed to protecting your privacy and helping you understand how We collect, use and safeguard the personal information collected though our website (the “Website”). This page (the “Privacy Policy”) describes the policies We have implemented with regards to collecting and using information about you. By accessing or using any portion of the Website or any service or content contained therein, you are acknowledging that you have read, understand, and accept this Privacy Policy and agree, without limitation or qualification, to be bound by this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy, please do not use or access the Website.

1. Changes to this Privacy Policy. Our Website and content, and our privacy practices, may change over time and, accordingly, We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change, add or remove portions of this Privacy Policy at any time and for any reason. If We change this Privacy Policy, We will post the revised document here, and such changes will be effective immediately upon that posting. As We may make changes at any time without notifying you, you should periodically review this Privacy Policy when accessing or using the Website. Your use of the Website constitutes your agreement to be bound by and comply with the then-current Privacy Policy. If at any time you no longer agree to be bound by or comply with the Privacy Policy, then you should stop accessing and using the Website.

2. Information We Collect. From time to time, you may provide us with your personally identifiable information when using the Website. When you provide us with your personally identifiable information, you are giving your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If you would prefer that We not collect any personally identifiable information from you, please do not provide us with any such information.

3. How We Use and Share Information. We use the information you provide to deliver you the content and services you have requested, such as by providing you with newsletters, e-mail updates, or responding to your inquiries. We may also use your information to send you e-mails or other communications concerning The Shed and Our initiatives. Additionally, We may use your information in connection with Our internal business purposes or for any other purpose We deem necessary or desirable to enhance your experience on the website.

We may disclose any information, including personally identifiable information, We deem necessary, in Our sole discretion, to governmental authorities or private parties in order to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process, investigation or governmental request. We may also disclose such information where We believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of Our policies, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing the Website and applicable laws, or as otherwise required or permitted by law or consistent with legal requirements.

4. Security. We may implement various security measures to help protect your personal information and reduce the risk of loss, misuse or alteration of the personal information under Our control. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while We strive to protect your personal information, We cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from the Website, and you do so at your own risk.

5. Retention. We will retain your personal information and other data submitted by you unless and until you ask to be removed from Our database. When you request to be removed from Our database, you will no longer receive e-mails from Us, but your information will remain in Our database and you may still receive other of Our mailings at your physical address. If you would like to be removed from Our database and physical address mailing list, please see Section 6 below. Please note that when information is removed from Our databases it may continue to exist in backup archives maintained by Us.

6. Updating Your Information and Opting Out. If you no longer wish to subscribe to Our online mailings or would like to change your e-mail preferences, you may do so at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each e-mail you receive from Us. You may also remove your name from Our database and e-mail and physical address mailing lists, or remove your information from the list provided Our partners and other third party organizations, by contacting us at info@theshed.org. Please be advised that sometimes these requests may take time to process. Unsubscribing from Our online mailings may take 2-4 weeks to be effective.

7. Links to Other Sites. You may find content on the Website that links to websites of Our partners, sponsors or other third parties. Please be aware that We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other parties or their websites. This Privacy Policy applies only to the information that We collect through the Website. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of other websites you link to from the Website or otherwise visit. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE SHED HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY TYPE OF DAMAGES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, OR LOSSES OR EXPENSES, FOR THE ACTIONS AND CUSTOMER INFORMATION PRACTICES OF ANY NON-SHED SITE TO WHICH THE WEBSITE LINKS OR REFERS.

8. Business Transfers. As We continue to develop and grow, We may sell or liquidate certain of Our assets or combine Our operations with those of another entity. In such transactions, user information, including personally identifiable information, generally is one of the transferred business assets. By submitting your personally identifiable information through the Website you agree that We may transfer your information to such entities in these circumstances.
