Seventh Generation will never sell your personal information to anyone ever. For petitions and surveys you've signed or completed, we treat certain information you may provide, including, your name, city, state, and comments, as public information, which means anyone can access and view it. We will not make your street address publicly available (if collected), but we may transmit it to your state legislators, governor, members of Congress, or the President as part of a petition. Seventh Generation will send you updates on this and other important campaigns by email. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from our email list, you may do so.
You may visit the Site and review some of its contents without providing any personal information to Seventh Generation. To sign a petition, to make comments, or to upload content, such as photographs, on Seventh Generation's petition website, you may be asked to become a member of the Site ("Member"), and must provide accurate information including your first name, last name, address, phone number, email address, and street address ("Personal Information"). Signing a petition does not require you to become a member, but you must supply accurate information including your name, state, and email address. Once you sign a petition, some of your information will be made public, including without limitation your first name, last name, and state ("Public Petition Information"). Public Petition Information - that is, information that is provided generally during the petition signing process - is considered public information, and you should assume that it will be made public. All other information you have been asked to provide will not be made public. Your Personal Information will be shared with Seventh Generation, Inc., but only Public Petition Information will be available to the public.
Seventh Generation may send you updates about the Site and about any petition you created or signed by email. You can remove yourself from the Seventh Generation mailing lists at any time by following the instructions contained in any email communication you receive.

Affiliated Third Parties - for example, our database administrators or organizations that provide extra organizers at an urgent time - for the sole purpose of helping Us do our work. These groups do not share your personal information or use it for any purpose other than as instructed by Us.
Third-Party Administrators, such as organizations we engage to facilitate large distribution of messages. The content of these emails will be from Seventh Generation, Inc. and these third parties do not have direct access to your personally identifiable information.
Petitions are public documents. That means that the public may have access to your name, city, state, and any comments you make while on the Site, as well as the content of the petition(s) you have signed. In addition, you or Seventh Generation - with your permission - may affirmatively pass along Personal Information to the following groups and individuals (as is standard practice):
Third-party networking sites that you choose to use to share the petition(s) you sign.
For petitions you've signed or completed, we treat your name, city, state, and comments as public information and reserve the right to share that information with anyone and to disclose it publicly in connection with the transmittal of petitions and publicizing of such petitions. For example, we may provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to the president, members of Congress, state elected officials and/or state legislators, the media, and/or other nonprofit or advocacy or political organizations. If collected, we will not make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit that address to the president, members of Congress, state elected officials and/or state legislators. We may also make your comments, along with your first name, city, and state, available to the targets of petitions other than those noted above, the press, and public online.
This Site is not directed at children and Seventh Generation does not knowingly collect information - nor does it want to collect information - from anyone under the age of 18. Seventh Generation does not solicit personally identifying information from children. If Seventh Generation learns that it has Personally Identifiable Information on a child under the age of 13, Seventh Generation will delete that information from its systems. Seventh Generation encourages parents and guardians to monitor children's online usage. Parental control protections, such as computer hardware, software or filtering services, are commercially available to limit the access to material that is harmful to minors.
We may place online advertising with third-party vendors, including Google, which will be shown on other sites on the Internet. In some cases, those third-party vendors may decide which ads to show you based on your prior visits to the Site. At no time will you be personally identified to those third-party vendors, nor will any of the information you share with us be shared with those third-party vendors.
URLs contained in emails may contain an ID that enables us to correctly identify the person who takes an action using a web page. We use these URLs to simplify the process of signing petitions and filling out surveys. We may occasionally present a shortened URL that references a longer URL that contains an ID - we do this to simplify the display, to prevent links from becoming broken when copied, and to ensure compatibility with email programs that do not handle long URLs. When a shortened URL is displayed in an email, you will see the full URL in the browser's address bar when you access the page.
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
Seventh Generation, Inc. may revise or amend this policy at any time at our sole discretion. If we make any substantive changes in the way we collect or use personally identifying information provided by users, we will post a prominent announcement on our website home page and post the changes on this page. We endeavor to, and make commercially reasonable efforts only to, change our policies and practices to make them more protective of Member information collected prior to the effective date of any changes. We will keep you informed of changes and we encourage all users to visit this page periodically to review our current policy.
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, your personal information, or the practices of this Site, you can contact us.

OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS OR ADDITIONAL TERMS, NEITHER SEVENTH GENERATION NOR ITS SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PROMISES ABOUT THE SERVICES.

About these Terms
We may modify these Terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. You should look at the Terms regularly. We'll post notice of modifications to these Terms on this page. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than fourteen days after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that Service.
If there is a conflict between these Terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will control for that conflict.
These Terms control the relationship between Seventh Generation and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights.
If you do not comply with these Terms, and we don't take action, this doesn't mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).
If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
The laws of Vermont, U.S.A., excluding Vermont's conflict of laws rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services. All claims arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of Chittenden County, Vermont, U.S.A., and you and Seventh Generation consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
