INTRODUCTION

This Application and/or Website (“Platform”) and its contents are owned by Future City Now ("we," "us," or "our"), along with third-party vendors contracted by us to run and maintain the functionality of our Platform. We are committed to protecting the privacy of those use our Platform.

This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect, how we use it, and your options as you interact with the Platform. By using this Platform, you agree to this Privacy Policy. Please read the following carefully before using the Platform.

Please note that this Privacy Policy does not govern the collection and use of information by companies that we do not control, nor by individuals not employed or managed by us. If you visit another website outside of our Platform (whether recommended, referenced, or linked), we strongly encourage you to review that website’s privacy policy before providing that website your information. This Privacy Policy applies only to our Platform.

YOUR CONSENT

By using our Platform, you consent to the collection, use and sharing of information as described in this Privacy Policy. By providing us with an email address when you subscribe, request to be contacted, or request a free 30-minute consult, you agree that we may use your email address to communicate with you about our services and select messages from our partners or affiliates.

NOTE: Opt-out options are discussed in the section entitled “Third-Party Vendors and Ways to Opt Out”.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

You may use our Platform without providing any personal information. When you reply to any of our communications with a request, we may need to collect additional information. For example, you may be asked to provide personal identifiable information (PII), such as first and last name, email address, phone number, and the name of your organization.

If you submit any personal information relating to other people, you represent that you have the authority to do so and permit us to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. By submitting personal information, you grant us the right to transmit, monitor, retrieve, store, and use your information in connection with the operation of the Platform.

When you submit personal information, we may also collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies and web beacons. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag, or clear GIF, is used to transmit information about actions of the user opening the page or email containing the beacon back to a web server. Certain features of the Services may use local shared objects (or Flash cookies) to collect and store information about your preferences and how you interact with the Services. We may also use third-party analytics tools (e.g., Google Analytics) that separately stores and collects information about use of the Services and user traffic. The information we may collect by automated means may include, without limitation:

  • Information about the devices you use to access the Services (such as your computer’s domain name, the IP address and the type of the device, operating system, and web browser).
  • Dates, times, and duration of use of the Services (including whether you are a repeat or first-time visitor).
  • Information on actions taken when using the Services (such as page views and navigation patterns).

This information helps us to improve and personalize our Services, focus our marketing efforts more precisely, and helps us identify and authenticate users.

Additionally, you may also opt to create a “gener.us” account. This is a secure application available to you for donations. All credit card information is processed externally by an approved third-party credit card processor. We will not store, process, and/or transmit your card information; however, PII may be stored within our Platform. Before creating a “gener.us” account, please review the “gener.us” Terms of Service.

  • take commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction

In the course of our business, we may share information with third-parties, including as required by law or in order to provide the services requested. We engage reputable third-party vendors to help us manage this Platform, provide content and information, and interact better with our customers.

Although we do not control how third-parties collect or use your information to serve interest-based advertising or other targeted content, a number of these third-parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way.
