Statements of Policy
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We periodically use your data to advertise to you across email and social media platforms, but all specific personal information except email address and cookies is kept strictly confidential.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:
- See what data we have about you, if any.
- Change/correct any data we have about you.
- Have us delete any data we have about you.
- Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
Sexual harassment is any unwelcome behavior of an implicitly or explicitly sexual nature which has the result of offending, humiliating, or intimidating and is not tolerated by Activate's partners or employees. Sexual harassment can occur between members of any sex or gender, and in any age dynamic. We are made up of activists and storytellers who fight day by day to end this kind of injustice in the world, and doing that starts in one's own life.
Activate Media is committed to providing safety for all of its employees and subcontractors from discrimination on any grounds and from harassment at work, including sexual harassment. We treat all incidents seriously and start investigations immediately. Any person found to have sexually harassed another will face disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal from any professional relationship with Activate Media. All complaints of sexual harassment will be taken seriously and treated with respect and in confidence. There will be no punishment, retaliation, or victimization for making a complaint.
Any employee or subcontractor who experiences sexual harassment is encouraged to file a written or verbal complaint directly with both of our partners simultaneously, as well as one of the two following agencies for public record-keeping:
New York City Commission on Human Rights (FEPA)
40 Rector Street - 9th Floor
New York, NY 10006
Phone: 212-306-7500 Fax: 212-306-7414
New Jersey Office of the Attorney General: Division on Civil Rights (OAG-DCR)
[Adopted from ILO.org]
Activate Media partners, employees, and subcontractors are expected to follow company policy and instructions, as well as the laws of the territory in which they are performing a service. They are expected to stay abreast of the laws of that particular territory and report any potential conflicts between those laws and Activate policy before those conflicts occur.
Given the nature of Activate Media's work, we may only choose to accept certain forms of payment, including check, credit card, or money order. If you are a candidate or organization that must report to any sort of commission besides the IRS (FEC, ELEC, NYC CFB, etc.), please let us know; we're happy to provide extra copies of documentation where needed.
