Research Coordination Network for Sustainable Human Building Ecosystems (“SHBE RCN”) respects your privacy and recognizes the importance of your personal information. We are committed to protecting your information through our compliance with this Privacy Policy.


This Privacy Policy describes our practices in connection with information we may collect through your use of website (“Site”). By using our Site and/or submitting any personal or other data, you consent to our collection and use of the information described in this Privacy Policy.


Collection and Use of Information
SHBE RCN will only collect your personal information (such as your name, address, or telephone number) if you provide it to us voluntarily and use it consistently with this Privacy Policy. Your decision not to provide personal information will not affect your ability to use other portions of the site that do not require personal information. The personal information collected may be used, among other ways, to disclose membership, engage in activity described on this Site, and enable companies we work with to provide services on our behalf.


In addition, we automatically collect certain information regarding visitors to our Site, including information about your equipment, browsing actions and usage patterns. The technologies we use for this automatic data collection include first and third party cookies. Cookies are small text files stored on your device (computer, tablet or mobile) when you are on the Internet, including on website and through Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting.


The automatic data information collected may be used to inform, optimize and serve you advertising tailored to your personal demographic interests or past visits to our Site, to perform traffic statistics and to facilitate the sharing of information on social networks.


The automatic data information collected as described above may be shared with third parties to assist in the analysis and use of the information as described in this Privacy Policy.


SHBE RCN may offer you the opportunity to link to third-party websites that are not controlled by SHBE RCN or subject to our Privacy Policy. If you visit these websites, we encourage you to read their privacy policies to determine how your information will be collected and used.


SHBE RCN has implemented a number of security features to help prevent the unauthorized release of or access to personal information. Although we strive to create a secure and reliable Site for you, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to or from SHBE RCN via the Site or email cannot be guaranteed.


We do not knowingly reveal any personal information that is provided by our customers through our Site to any third parties except as provided in this Privacy Policy, when requested to do so by a government agency having jurisdiction, by a court of competent jurisdiction or other operation of law, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent personal harm or financial loss in connection with an investigation of suspected or illegal activity.

Our Site is intended to be used by adults only and is not directed to children age 13 or under. If you are age 13 or under, you are not eligible to use our website.
