Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting your privacy and respectful of sensitive information. If you have questions about this privacy policy, please contact us.

Personal information

1. DartmouthChange will never sell or rent your name, email address, or other personal information to any third parties. Also, we will never share your name, email address, or other personal information to any third parties except as otherwise described in this policy. We will disclose personally identifiable information only if required pursuant to a subpoena from law enforcement officials.

2. Again, we will only share your personal information if required by law, such being required to share data with law enforcement or government officials pursuant to a subpoena. If this should occur, we will publish the court order on this site to provide fair warning.

3. If you send us a comment through the Contact section or through any email, we will use any information you provide for internal research and analysis purposes only, unless you explicitly agree otherwise in writing or unless you have already provided personal information through the mailing list or petition.

4. By signing up for our mailing list, you agree to receive periodic emails from us with news about the campaign to end sexual assault at Dartmouth College. If you ever want to be taken off our mailing list, let us know, and we’ll remove you promptly. Every newsletter also includes information on how to unsubscribe yourself.

5. If you sign up for our mailing list, we will use any additional information you may provide for internal research and analysis purposes only, although we may publicly share “de-personalized” aggregate information compiled from submissions and communications to our web site, such as the number and diversity of our mailing list participants.

5. If you sign a petition or pledge, your name will be automatically published on our site. We may provide this public information to Dartmouth College administrators in order to influence decisions that will improve the safety of all students. We may also publicly share additional aggregate “statistics” about petition and pledge participants based on additional information you provide, such as an analysis by gender or location, but we will never share your email address.

6. If you chose to share your experience through our web site, we will only publish those items to which you explicitly agree in writing. We will communicate with you directly to confirm what you are comfortable sharing. These stories can be published anonymously, under a pseudonym or with your name. Note that we will not publish stories that include the names or any reasonably identifying information of any participants in that story (for example, perpetrators of assault or bystanders) without their written agreement.

7. If you chose to share a letter through our web site, note that any content, image or file you share with us will be published in its entirety and will include any personal information you put in the letter. We may also publicly share additional aggregate “statistics” about petition and pledge participants based on additional information you provide, such as an analysis by gender or location, but we will never share your email address.

Notice to parents and children under the age of 16

If you are under 16, you should always ask your parent/gaurdian before you:

  • Email any site, or ask any site to e-mail anything to you
  • Send in any information
  • Join any club or group
  • Post any information to a site

If you are under 16  years of age, you should not provide any personally identifiable information (like your last name or e-mail address) through any site without the knowledge and permission of your parent/gaurdian. If DartmouthChange learns that you are under 16 years of age, we will not maintain or use any personally identifiable information about you without the verifiable consent of your parent/gaurdian, except as allowed by law. 

Changes to this policy

We do not expect to change this policy. However, any revisions will be posted on our site with the date of change noted at the bottom of the page, and will will also send notice to the mailing list.
