Please read this Privacy Notice carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your Information and how we will handle it.  If you do not agree with our policies and practices, do not use the Platform.  By accessing or using the Platform, you agree to this Privacy Notice.

Be Good Project may change this Privacy Notice at any time, at its discretion.  Your continued use of the Platform after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the Privacy Notice periodically for updates.

This Privacy Notice is subject to and governed by the Be Good Project Terms of Use (“Terms of Use”) available here.

2. ​The Types of Information That Be Good Project Collects About You and How Be Good Project Collects Information About You

Be Good Project may collect two types of Information from you when you use the Platform: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information (collectively “Information”).

  • “Personal Information” refers to data by which you may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number.

  • “Non-Personal Information” means data that is about you, but does not identify you specifically.  This includes Information such as location data and the date and time of logging into the Platform. 

We collect Information:

  • Directly from you when you provide it to us.

  • Automatically as you interact with the Platform.


Information You Provide Directly to Be Good Project.  The Information that you provide us directly through the Platform may include:

  • Information that you provide to Be Good Project by filling out our intake form, setting up a personal profile, or contacting us for support.  We may also ask you for Information when you report a problem with the Platform, and it may be necessary for you to provide us with Information so we can communicate with you about an inquiry you have.

  • Records and copies of your correspondence (including email addresses), if you contact us.

  • Transactional Information if you pay for the Platform or advertise with us; and

  • Cookies, which are small text files that a web server (such as Be Good Project‘s or its chosen web hosting company server) places on a user's computer.  When accessing a cookie, Be Good Project’s server reads a number associated with a browser, but is unable to determine any data about a user.  With that number, our web server can tailor its content to the needs of the specific browser, and we can optimize the Platform for your use.

We may collect general Information about the equipment you use to access and utilize the Platform, your operating system and browsing type, the services that you use, times and dates of your interactions with the Platform, details of your transactions through the Platform, and mobile software event data.
