ultimatehumanfoundation.org Privacy Policy and Legal Terms


ultimatehumanfoundation.org is a not-for-profit grassroots organization that operates the ultimatehumanfoundation.org website. Our goal is to grow and protect the sharing economy through collective action.

This policy explains how we protect the personal information of people who use our website. ultimatehumanfoundation.org values and respects the privacy of our members. We believe you have a right to control how your personal information is collected and used. Except where we get your consent, we will not share your personal information with unaffiliated organizations.

What information do we collect?

ultimatehumanfoundation.org collects limited information about our members and supporters such as contact details, the city and country you are from and how you came into contact with us. We collect this information in a range of different situations, such as when someone visits our website, when they sign a petition, when they come to an event or when a partner organization joins a campaign that ultimatehumanfoundation.org is running. Our information systems also collect information about the way that you use our website, so that we can continue to improve our website and our campaigns.

How do we use your personal information?

We ask for your personal information so that we can stay in contact with you and let you know of new campaigns and other opportunities to take part in growing and protecting the sharing economy.

When might we give anyone else access to your personal information?

We do not hand our membership lists over to other groups. From time to time we might let you know about an exciting or important campaign being run by a partner organization. When we do this, ultimatehumanfoundation.org will notify its membership via email or other means but will not hand over member information without consent.

For our campaigns to be effective, it is important that our members and supporters make a public stand in the fight to protect sharing. So if you participate in specific campaign actions such as adding your name to a petition, uploading a video to our site or writing a letter to a news media organization, your information will be available publicly on our website. We may also include on our website your comments, along with your first name, last initial, and where you are located (city, state or country).

Like many organizations we use specialist service providers to help run parts of our operations. This means that for us to run our normal operations, service providers such as web hosts and email or SMS providers will sometimes need access to the database we hold on our members. We require them to keep this information confidential.

The exceptional situations when ultimatehumanfoundation.org might disclose information about you include when it is required by law, when it is necessary for something you have requested from us and when necessary to protect someone’s safety, rights or property.

Use of our website email tool

We may we offer a function in which members can write a message to policymakers, a company CEO, a news organization or other decision makers. These messages are sent in your name, with your contact information such as your email address as the return address. Please review the content of these messages carefully because as they are sent from your email address and not from ultimatehumanfoundation.org, you are responsible for the content of these messages.

How can you stop receiving email from ultimatehumanfoundation.org?

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from our email list, you may do so by emailing answers@ultimatehumans.org with "unsubscribe" in the subject heading and we will remove your name from our lists. We will act quickly to implement such requests but please note there may be time lags of up to a month to remove names from our database.

Financial transactions

If you make a financial transaction with ultimatehumanfoundation.org, your credit card or other payment information will be used only for this transaction through our secure online payment system. ultimatehumanfoundation.org does not retain payment information without your consent.

How does ultimatehumanfoundation.org keep your information secure?

ultimatehumanfoundation.org endeavors to take all reasonable steps to keep secure any information that we hold about you, and to keep this information accurate and up to date. Your information is transmitted internationally to be stored on secure servers that are protected in controlled facilities. We require our employees and data processors to respect the confidentiality of any personal information.

What technologies do we use to analyze traffic on the ultimatehumanfoundation.org website?

Like most websites, we collect basic web traffic information (such as IP addresses) to monitor overall usage of our site. This helps us understand traffic patterns and know if there are problems on the site. We use embedded images in emails to track open rates for our campaigns, so that we can know what campaigns members support most strongly and we can learn better how to keep members of our movement engaged with the sharing economy movement. We also use URLs (website links) in emails with an identifier that allows us to correctly identify the person who takes an action using a web page, so we can know who are our most active members and what campaigns they support.

Cookie technology is used on several parts of our website. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to a computer, tablet or smartphone to analyze website usage and to facilitate transactions and a more personalised website experience. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies. If you do not wish to receive any cookies you may set your browser to refuse cookies. This may mean you will not be able to take full advantage of all the functions on the Ultimate Human.org website.

Children’s privacy

We do not intend to solicit personally identifying information from children. Visitors who are under 13 years of age must consult a parent or guardian before engaging.

Links to other websites

The ultimatehumanfoundation.org website contains links to other websites. ultimatehumanfoundation.org is not responsible for the practices or privacy policies of those sites.

Future revisions

ultimatehumanfoundation.org’s website and activities will continue to grow and change as we add new ways to campaign and make your voice heard. That means there will be continued changes in how we communicate with our members and run campaigns. Because of this, from time to time, our privacy policy will be reviewed and revised. Whenever we change our privacy policy we will post an updated version on our website, including the last date of revision.
