How We Collect and Use Information

We Collect Some Information Directly

On certain occasions when you interact with the North end NYC – e.g., by joining as a member, signing up for a newsletter, or entering a contest – you may submit information of your own accord, or be asked to do so to participate in certain activities. Some examples of information that you submit and we collect may include:

  • Name and login information
  • Email address
  • Mailing address
  • Your phone number
  • Responses to surveys or contests
  • Photos or videos
  • Comments on articles
  • Information about pledges/donations

In this Privacy Policy, we will refer to this type of personally identifiable information as “Personal Information.”

North end NYC are based in the United States. If you voluntarily submit Personal Information to us while located or residing in a country outside the United States, you understand that you are voluntarily agreeing to the use and processing of such information as provided in this Privacy Policy, including transfer of your information to the United States, a jurisdiction which may not offer the same framework for the protection of personal information as the jurisdiction in which you are located.

We Collect Some Information Automatically

North end NYC uses cookies and other tagging or tracking technologies that interact with your browser to increase our digital functionality and offer responsive elements based on your and other users’ actions (e.g., to store your preferences or password and understand your platform use patterns).

When you use the North end NYC, we may automatically recognize information like your IP address, what type of device you’re using, high-level location information (e.g., city or state), and your user behavior (such as how long you stay on the website and which links you click on).

Some of the third party vendors that we use to provide services for the North end NYC (e.g. analytics) may also use their own tracking technologies on our digital properties to help us run and optimize our platforms. These third parties may collect information about your online activities over time and across the North end NYC and other online properties.

How We Process, Store and Use Personal Information

We only collect Personal Information as discussed above – and use the Personal Information we receive within or through the North end NYC and family of services for purposes disclosed in this Privacy Policy or in connection with your submission of information.

In general, our main purpose in collection, use, and storage of information is to further our mission by making the North end NYC work better for you and by staying in touch with you about North end NYC events or offerings that may interest you. So, for example, we may email to invite you to join a new newsletter list, tell you about Greene Space events, or ask you to renew your membership when it expires. Our usage of your Personal Information is necessary for our legitimate interest in and purpose of staying in touch with you and administering and promoting the North end NYC.

Please do note that if you share Personal Information through certain North end NYC publishing features, it may become public (e.g. if you include your email address in a comment or your name in a content submission, that information may be seen by other users or used for attribution).

Aggregated and De-Identified Information

We may use information that has been aggregated and anonymized or de-identified to assess and improve the North end NYC, including to enhance your user experience, to select third-party vendors who best meet our needs, and to help foundation and corporate funders better understand our audience. We may sometimes produce data and analysis results with this aggregated or anonymized information that help us understand our users and their interactions with the North end NYC. To accomplish this we may share aggregated or anonymized information with third parties – and may also share the resulting data and analysis (which will not include any Personal Information).

Contests and User Engagement

From time to time, we may offer various opportunities for you to interact with North end NYC – in particular, by entering contests through the North end NYC or by sending us your writings/audio/photos/videos in response to specific crowdsourcing requests. Please note that these opportunities may have their own rules; these rules, which govern your participation in these contests or activities, may give North end NYC additional rights to use entries or submissions. If there is any conflict or inconsistency between such rules and this Policy, the rules will govern and take precedence.

Children Under 13 Years of Age

North end NYC does not knowingly solicit or collect information from children ages 12 and under without obtaining explicit parental consent. If you become aware that your child (who is under 13) has provided us with information without your consent, please contact us; upon request, we will work to delete your child’s Personal Information from our files within a reasonable time.

Access to Your Information

Because we value the longevity of our relationships with our supporters, we do generally retain user information in our database. If you would like to access, transfer, review, or correction of or to your Personal Information, or to request that it be deleted or restricted in use, please contact us — depending on your location or country of residence, you may have a legal right to make these requests and to contact supervisory authorities if you are not satisfied with our response.

Changes to Privacy Policy

North end NYC may change and update this Policy from time to time. We will post Policy updates to this page, and may send notify members of our mailing lists of changes by email as well; will email users who have registered login information at the email address associated with their account. We will not post updates or send email notification regarding changes to the third party services list, which may be updated from time to time. Any changes will only take effect prospectively from the date of the change; continued use of the North end NYC constitutes consent to any new Policy.
