Your Rights and Choices

Individuals in certain jurisdictions, such as in the European Union, may have certain rights
and choices regarding Nocktern’s processing of their personal data. We reserve the right to
verify your identity in connection with any requests regarding personal data to help ensure
that we provide the information we maintain to the individuals to whom it pertains, and allow
only those individuals or their authorized representatives to exercise rights with respect to
that information.

If Nocktern relies on your consent for the processing of your personal data, we will obtain
your consent at the time we collect your personal data. To the extent provided by applicable
law, you may withdraw any consent previously provided to us, or object at any time on
legitimate grounds, to the processing of your personal data. We will apply these preferences
going forward. In some circumstances, withdrawing consent to our use or disclosure of your
personal data will mean that Nocktern may no longer be able to provide you with services or
information about events or initiatives that may be of interest to you.

Access to Personal Data

You may access the data we maintain about you by submitting a request to for inquiries relating to Nocktern, and for inquiries relating to our work.
If we grant your request, we will provide you with a copy of the personal data we maintain
about you in the ordinary course of business, in a commonly used format. You may request
to correct any errors in your personal data. We may reject your request to access or correct
personal data, as permitted by applicable law. If we reject your request, we will notify you of
the reason(s) for the rejection.

Portability of Personal Data

Under certain conditions, you may request that we transfer your personal data to another
entity in the format in which we maintain it in the ordinary course of business. We may reject
your request, as permitted by applicable law. If we reject your request, we will notify you of
the reason(s) for the rejection.

Deletion of Personal Data

You may request that we delete your personal data by sending an email to We may reject your request, as permitted by applicable law. For
example, Nocktern may be required by legal, tax or other reasons to retain your personal
data in its business or donation records. If we reject your request, we will notify you of the
reason(s) for the rejection.


You may unsubscribe from receiving marketing or other commercial emails from Nocktern by
following the instructions included in the email that we will send to you after you notify us
about your wish. However, even if you opt out of receiving such communications, we retain
the right to send you certain other types of communications (such as information about your
Site purchases or changes to our Privacy Policy or Terms of Use).

Cookies and Advertising

We, our service providers, and other third parties may also collect certain information about
the use of our Sites by automated means, such as cookies, web beacons and other

We, our service providers and other third parties may collect information about Site users’
online activities over time and across third-party websites and our Sites.

The information that may be collected by automated means includes:
● URLs that refer users to our Sites
● Search terms used to reach our Sites
● Details about the devices that are used to access our Sites (such as IP address,
browser type, and operating system information)
● Details about users’ interaction with our Sites (such as the date, time, frequency, and
length of visits, specific content and pages accessed and buttons clicked during the
visits, and information provided by you, including email addresses)
● Web browsers may offer users of our Sites the ability to disable receiving certain
types of cookies; however, if cookies are disabled, some features or functionality of
our Sites may not function correctly.

To support and enhance the services provided through our Sites, we may display
advertisements, and also allow third parties to display advertisements, through our Sites.
Advertising cookies (or targeting cookies) collect information about the browsing habits
associated with your device and are used to make advertising more relevant to you and your
interests. They are also used by services provided by third parties on our Sites, such as
‘Like’ or ‘Share’ buttons, in addition to providing the requested functionality. Third parties
provide these services in return for recognizing that you (or more accurately your device)
have visited a certain website. These third parties put down advertising cookies both when
you visit our Sites and when you use their services and navigate away from our Sites.

These advertisements are sometimes targeted and served to particular users and may come
from third party companies called “ad networks.” Ad networks include third party ad servers,
ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. We are not responsible for the
privacy practices of these ad networks and other parties. Advertisements served through
the services may be targeted to users who fit a certain general profile category created by
the third party, which may be inferred from information you provide to us, based on your
services usage patterns, or based on your activity on Third Party Services (as defined in this
Privacy Policy).

Some of the third parties that collect information about your activities on our Sites may be
members of organizations or programs that provide you with choices regarding the use of
your browsing behavior for purposes of targeted advertising. Please note that we may also
work with companies that offer their own opt-out mechanisms which will use different types
of opt-out mechanisms.

Because there is not yet a consensus on how companies should respond to web
browser-based do-not-track (“DNT”) mechanisms, we do not respond to web browser-based
DNT signals at this time. Please note that not all tracking will stop even if you delete

Links to Other Websites and Third Party Content

We may provide links to other websites, services, and applications that are not operated or
controlled by us (the “Third Party Services”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to the Third
Party Services. While we attempt to facilitate access only to those Third Party Services that
share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content, privacy
policies, or practices of those Third Party Services. We encourage you to review and
understand the privacy practices of any Third Party Services before providing any
information to or through them. Your interactions with these features are governed by the
privacy policy of the Third Party Service that provides the feature.

International Data Transfers

We may transfer your personal data for processing in countries other than the country in
which you initially provided the information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.
For example, if you are located outside of the European Union, we typically transfer and
process all personal data in the European Union, where Nocktern are based.The countries
to which we transfer personal data may not guarantee the same level of protection for
personal data as the one in which you reside. By using the Site, you consent to the transfer
of your information to Europe.

How We Protect Information

Nocktern maintains reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed
to protect the personal data we maintain against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized
destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.

Despite these efforts, however, no organization, including Nocktern, can fully eliminate risks
or guarantee the security of personal data. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software
failure, and other factors may compromise the security of information about you at any time,
and we bear no liability for uses or disclosures of personal data or other data arising in
connection with theft of the information or other malicious actions.

Data Retention

We retain personal data for as long as is necessary for the processing purpose(s) for which
the data was collected, and any other permissible, related purpose. When we no longer
need the personal information we collect, we either anonymize the information or securely
destroy the information.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We may at any time in our sole discretion revise or update this Privacy Policy. We will post
any changes on this page and indicate at the top of this page the date this Privacy Policy
was last revised. You may read a current, effective copy of this Privacy Policy at any time by
visiting this page. We will also notify you of any material changes either through a pop-up
notice, email or through other reasonable means.
