Our Privacy Policy

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, The 20/20 Project collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The 20/20 Project’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The 20/20 Project’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The 20/20 Project may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

The 20/20 Project also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs. The 20/20 Project only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to The 20/20 Project’s website choose to interact with The 20/20 Project in ways that require The 20/20 Project to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The 20/20 Project gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at The 20/20 Project to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with The 20/20 Project – by donating, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The 20/20 Project collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The 20/20 Project. The 20/20 Project does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

The 20/20 Project may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, The 20/20 Project may monitor the site. The 20/20 Project may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The 20/20 Project does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The 20/20 Project discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on The 20/20 Project’s behalf or to provide services available at The 20/20 Project’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The 20/20 Project’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The 20/20 Project will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The 20/20 Project discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The 20/20 Project believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The 20/20 Project, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an The 20/20 Project website and have supplied your email address, The 20/20 Project may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The 20/20 Project and our projects. We expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. The 20/20 Project takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. The 20/20 Project uses cookies to help The 20/20 Project identify and track visitors, their usage of The 20/20 Project website, and their website access preferences. The 20/20 Project visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using The 20/20 Project’s website, with the drawback that certain features of The 20/20 Project’s website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If The 20/20 Project, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that The 20/20 Project goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of The 20/20 Project may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, The 20/20 Project may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in The 20/20 Project’s sole discretion. The 20/20 Project encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
