This Privacy Policy describes the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information and other data by Organizing Engagement.

Personal Information

Organizing Engagement does not automatically collect or log Personal Information on visitors to the website.

First names, last names, email addresses, and zip codes that users manually and voluntarily submit through our email sign-up forms are the only form of Personal Information collected by Organizing Engagement. This information is stored in a password-protected MailChimp account, and it will be used exclusively to send news and announcements related to Organizing Engagement.

Organizing Engagement does not share Personal Information with partners, funders, or any other third parties, and Personal Information will never be sold or exchanged for commercial purposes.

Should Organizing Engagement discontinue operation, all Personal Information archived in the MailChimp account will be deleted.

Website Analytics

Organizing Engagement uses Google Analytics to track website traffic and other data. Google Analytics may log information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, regional location of internet connection, browser version, the date and time of your visit, time spent on the site, and other standard statistics. No Personal Information is collected or shared with Organizing Engagement.

Service Providers

Organizing Engagement may employ third-party companies and individuals to provide services on our behalf (such as MailChimp) or perform services for us (such as website design and development). These third parties may have limited access to your Personal Information to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf. However, they are obligated not to use or disclose any Personal Information collected by Organizing Engagement.


Organizing Engagement uses standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) / Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) encryption for secure data transmission over internet-connected computer networks. Personal Information is stored on servers operated by reputable businesses following standard internet security measures.

Users should note, however, that no method of electronic transmission over the internet, and no method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, reliable, or protected from hacking, abuse, or misuse.

External Links

Organizing Engagement links to websites owned and operated by third parties. Users who click on third-party links will be directed to external websites that are not operated by Organizing Engagement. Measures have been taken to ensure that links do not connect users to malicious websites. However, Organizing Engagement cannot guarantee that third-party websites have not been corrupted, hacked, or altered. Organizing Engagement cannot assume responsibility for the content, practices, privacy policies, or security of any third-party websites.
