350NH Privacy Policy

 This website is operated by 350NH (the controller and responsible for your Personal Data) (“we”, “us” and/or “our”) and has been created to accomplish our mission of building a movement to solve the climate crisis with the help of Website visitors (“you”, “your”).  

We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting your Personal Data. Our updated Privacy Policy outlines what information we collect about you and how it is used. We also explain how we look after your Personal Data, who we share it with, how we look after it and tell you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you. This policy is effective September 2020.

General Policy:  

350NH has a firm commitment to internet privacy.  You can visit most portions of 350NH without telling us who you are and without revealing any personally identifiable information (“Personal Data”).  The only information we collect from a normal Website visit is information that cannot be used to specifically identify you (“Non-Personal Data”), which usually includes the name of your internet service provider, the browser and type of machine you are using, the Website that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time you request them.

Why do we collect your Personal Data?

350NH is a statewide climate justice organization. Bringing people together is critical to how we make a difference. Staying in touch with our supporters and Website users is vital to our success and to the mobilization of our diverse team and its ability to make an impact.

To this end, when you sign petitions or other forms on our website, we collect information about you, which helps us:

  • communicate with you about our campaigns and to mobilize our members;
  • promote and fund our campaigns and petitions and maximize their impact;
  • work together to put pressure on leaders and governments.

What Personal Data do we collect about you?

We do encourage you to voluntarily share Personal Data with us, because we can’t build the grassroots climate movement without supporters like you. By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

When we say “Personal Data” we mean any information about you from which you can be identified.

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of Personal Data about you which we have grouped together as follows:

  • Identity Data includes first name, last name, username or similar identifier.
  • Contact Data includes email address, telephone numbers, location.
  • Donation Data includes details about donations from you, including the amount, currency and method of payment.  We do not store your credit card information or banking details save the expiry date and the last four digits of your card number, so we can refer to it when reminding you expiry is imminent;
  • Technical Data includes internet protocol (IP) address, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this website, together with information about the device(s) used;
  • User Record Data includes information you have voluntarily provided about your interests, preferences, feedback, survey responses, comments, personalized messages from you, public comments submitted, and your response to any polls or surveys.  We also keep records of each time you complete a campaign action, whenever you subscribed or unsubscribed to a mailing list, whether you acted in response to a mailing, social media, or through another source, details of phone calls with you, credit for sharing links (eg by “Tell A Friend” emails or social media postings), and any other information you share when you take any action with 350NH, online or otherwise;
  • Volunteer Data includes information about whether you are interested in volunteering, and, if so, what types of activity you would like to be involved in;
  • Usage Data includes information about how you use our website and also how you engage with our content;
  • Mailing Data includes mailings between us (including date/timestamp of mailing, content of mailing, language of mailing, topic categories);
  • Communications Data includes your preferences in receiving communications from us and, where applicable, your opt-in to receive such communications.

We may also collect:

  • Your third-party authentication status if you visit the Website (i.e. whether you are presently logged into Facebook or other social media accounts);
  • Data relating to Updates and Email Tracking:  If you sign up to receive updates from 350NH, we will strive to provide you accurate and timely information about our campaign activities.  In order to improve our engagement with our network, we may track whether the emails we send to you are being opened, and other related information such as when and whether the links they contain are being clicked, whether you sign or share petitions, and of the people you shared with who also go on to sign our petitions. 
  • Images, photographs, or video you upload to the site;

We also collect from all visitors:

  • Technical information about your use of the Website, browser type and version, and operating system

We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you. (Race, ethnicity, gender, etc).

Since achieving our mission involves many aspects — environmental, social justice, economical, political — some of the Personal Data which you share about yourself and your interest in these areas may relate to your political opinions and voting intentions.

We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data.


If you are under the age of 13, you must ask your parent/guardian for their consent before submitting your Personal Data to this site. If we have reason to believe that someone is underage and we have collected their Personal Data without proper consent, we will delete that information in a reasonable period of time.

How we collect your Personal Data

We mostly collect Personal Data directly from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you:

  • “Join In” via our Website;
  • contact us with inquiries;
  • sign up to a newsletter or mailing list to receive our movement dispatches;
  • take action online (including responding to one of our surveys; registering to participate in certain projects or campaigns; signing or creating a petition; signing an open letter or a pledge; sending a message or “thank you” to others engaged on our mission);
  • volunteer or host an event;
  • Provide your name and email address to one of our partner organizations, on the basis that it can be shared with us;
  • RSVP for an event or
  • make a donation.  

How we use your Personal Data

Personal Data: we use the Personal Data provided by you to shape our campaigns, reach out and promote your involvement with our initiatives and generally in the advancement of our shared mission. 

We only use the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy and where the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your Personal Data in the following circumstances:

  • With your consent (e.g. to this Privacy Policy);
  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests;
  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided.  For example:

  • to “Join In” via our website/register you as a supporter of 350NH (where you ask us to email you at key moments when you can make a difference);
  • if you sign up for a campaign or to be involved in an event, we will use your Personal Data to send you updates and other information about the campaign or event, for example:
  • if a local leader starts a campaign or petition that you sign, they may access the Personal Data you have shared and follow up with you about local campaign updates;
  • if you sign, share or donate, we use your Personal Data to send you information about our work via any channels you’ve consented to (email, phone/SMS).
  • to connect you with 350NH’s campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions;
  • to process any donation made by you;
  • to seek to re-engage you with our network;

Since achieving our mission often seeks to put pressure on governments into limiting emissions and so can relate to who controls the government, we may communicate with you with information related to elections.

We may use the personal information of all visitors of the Website to:

  • use data analytics to improve our Website, 
  • administer the Website (including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, system maintenance, support, reporting and hosting of data);
  • manage our relationship with you (for example, to answer your queries, notify you about changes to our Privacy Policy).

Donor Privacy Policy

350NH does not rent, share, sell or trade any Personal Data from online or offline donations with any 2nd or 3rd party, nor do we rent, share, sell or trade information about what donations supporters have undertaken on our Website with any 2nd or 3rd party, with the sole exception being our affiliate organization, 350NH Action. 350NH Action is incorporated in the United States as a 501(c)4 non-profit organization, with the mission of mobilizing voters in the United States to elect progressive climate champions at all levels of government. 


If you have questions about this privacy policy, you may submit the “contact us” form on the website and someone on the team will get back to you.

When We Share your Personal Information:

350NH is not interested in selling your Personal Data.  We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you.  There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

350NH volunteers and event hosts

350NH volunteers or event hosts may have access to your contact information, including your name, email address, and telephone number to reach out to you about a specific campaign or event. They may contact you directly.

Targets of 350NH campaigns

For petitions, letters to the editor, and surveys you’ve signed or completed, we may pass on your name, city, state, and comments to the target. Where the target is a government body or official that requires petition signers to be constituents, we may also provide your postal code and full address. We will not otherwise make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit it to campaign targets specifically noted on the action page.

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties

350NH sometimes hires service providers and other companies to perform certain functions.  Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases, cloud computing services, and processing payments.  When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we take precautions to provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function. We require all third parties to respect the security of your Personal Data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your Personal Data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your Personal Data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Partner organizations

In order to accomplish our mission, 350NH sometimes works closely with other non-profit groups working on climate change issues. If we co-host an event, your data may be shared with the other host of the event. We do not sell our data or freely share your information with random third party organizations. 

Payment processors

We work with ActBlue to help process donations and credit card transactions and other payment methods when you donate to 350NH. These payment processors will store certain Personal Data about you. Please refer to their privacy policies to learn more about how they use your Personal Data.

Legal Requirements

We may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law (including without limitation any election law) or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of 350NH, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Website visitors or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.

How do we keep your Personal Information safe?

350NH makes great efforts to protect the Personal Data provided via the Website from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your Personal Data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your Personal Data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have an organizational need to know. They will only process your Personal Data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

However, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free.  In particular, e-mail sent to or from the Website may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.

350NH also strives to ensure the secure collection and transmission of sensitive visitor payment information using industry accepted data collection and encryption methodologies.  If you choose to make a donation to 350NH, your credit card information will be used only for transactions through our secure online payment system. If you choose to make that donation recurring, the information will be stored by our third party payment processors, and is not stored or seen by 350NH.  350NH does not sell or otherwise disclose such visitor payment information outside the organization.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected Personal Data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

We continually review what information we hold and will delete personal data which is no longer required.

How can I Unsubscribe?

You may opt out of any communications from 350NH via the “unsubscribe” button in email correspondence from us, or by replying “stop” to text messages sent by 350NH. Fill out our contact form if you need help unsubscribing.

How does 350.org use cookies?

Like most websites, 350nh.org may place a “cookie,” or small file, in the browser files of a visitor’s computer. Some cookies are used to prepopulate forms for you so that on repeat visits to the Website you don’t need to re-enter certain information. You can set your browser to disable cookies, but then you would not have the advantage of having certain sections of forms being prepopulated for you, and you may not be able to access certain parts of the Website.

We may also use third-party services such as Google Analytics. This helps us understand traffic patterns and know if there are problems with our Website. We may also use embedded images in emails to track open rates for our mailings, so that we can tell which mailings appeal most to 350NH supporters.

Updating the Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is not of contractual effect. 350NH may change its Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make any significant changes to the rules that govern this site, or the way we use your Personal Data, we will add a prominent notice to this Website. Please review this Privacy Policy periodically, and especially before you provide any Personal Data.  This Privacy Policy was last updated on the date indicated above. Your continued use of the Website after any changes are made to this Privacy Policy indicates your agreement with the terms of the changed Privacy Policy.


The Privacy Policy does not apply to any unsolicited information provided to 350NH through the Website or through any other means.  This includes, but is not limited to, information posted to any public areas of the Website and any unsolicited submissions. All such information will be treated as public information.

Links to Other Websites

This Privacy Policy applies only to the Website.  The Website may contain links to other Websites, plug-ins and applications not operated or controlled by 350NH (the “Third Party Sites”).  Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow Third Party Sites to collect or share data about you. The policies and procedures we described here do not apply to the Third Party Sites.  The links from the Website do not imply that 350NH endorses or has reviewed the Third Party Sites. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.

Social Media

Through the Website, you can choose to access certain social media Websites and services that are owned and controlled by third parties (e.g. Facebook and Twitter) (the “Social Media Services”).  When you elect to access and use the Social Media Services, you will be sharing your information (which will include your Personal Information if you elect to share such information) with those Social Media Services.  As with other Third Party Sites, the information that you share with the Social Media Services will be governed by the privacy policies and terms of service of the providers of such Social Media Services and not by the policies and procedures we describe here.

We may use your email address and Facebook ID to participate in Facebook’s Custom Audience and Lookalike Audience programs, which enable us to display campaign promotions to both existing and prospective members when they visit.

To do this, we first send an digital “fingerprint” of your email address to Facebook — we don’t send your actual email address, but instead an cryptographic piece of data that Facebook can use to find matches to email addresses in their database.  If you are not a Facebook user, or if the email address you use at 350.org is not one that you use with your Facebook account, then there will be no match, and Facebook will not receive any information that they could use to identify you or target you in any way.  If you are a Facebook user and your 350.org email address matches your Facebook email address, 350.org campaign promotions may then appear when you access Facebook.

Facebook deletes this information (a) if it does not match with a Facebook account or (b) after they confirm you are a registered account holder. For more detailed information about how Facebook uses digital fingerprints — also known as a cryptographic hash — please see https://www.facebook.com/business/help/112061095610075 and Facebook’s data policy at https://en-gb.facebook.com/policy.php.
