Privacy Policy

Edible Schoolyard NYC (“ESYNYC”) reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time at its sole discretion and without sending notice to you, so you should review this Privacy Policy periodically. The effective date of this notice and any revised or changed notice may be found on this page, on the bottom left hand corner of the notice.

Privacy; Confidential Information

ESYNYC’s policy is to protect the confidentiality of the individually identifiable information that you provide, and we limit access to that information only to those with a need to know. ESYNYC collects the only computer information and cookies from you. If you choose to complete certain forms or send us requests, you will be asked to provide the following information: full name, street address, city, state ZIP, phone number, e-mail address, and we may ask you to indicate your role or occupation (as an educator, parent, etc.). Because donations are through a third party, ESYNYC will not see your full credit card number or banking information.

ESYNYC’s policy is to prohibit the unlawful disclosure of your personal information. ESYNYC will not release your name or otherwise publicize the fact that you purchased goods or other information to us unless: (a) you grant ESYNYC permission to do so; or (b) ESYNYC is requested or required to do so by law.

Personally Identifiable Information

The preceding paragraphs describe the categories of personally identifiable information that ESYNYC collects in this Site. Given the limited information collected and the form in which ESYNYC receives it, ESYNYC does not offer a process for review and changes to personal information.

ESYNYC may disclose personally identifiable information you provide to third parties if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) complete the donation transaction, such as providing your shipping information to our carrier; (b) comply with legal process; (c) enforce the Terms and Conditions; (d) respond to claims that any information you provide violates the rights of third parties; (e) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of ESYNYC, its users and/or the public; or (f) in relation to the sale, assignment, transfer or acquisition of all or substantially all of ESYNYC’s assets or shares by a third party. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, ESYNYC will NOT sell or trade your personally identifiable information with third parties, such as sellers of goods or services.
