As we develop new tools to communicate with one another, special attention must be paid to the protection of our private lives. That’s why we are committed to respecting the confidentiality of all personal information we collect.

Collection of personal information

We may collect the following information: name, mailing address and postal code, email address, telephone number, and credit card number.

The information we collect is pulled from forms you interact with on our website. We also use, as explained below, cookies and log files to collect information about you.

Privacy

Ricochet does not sell, trade or otherwise share your data. Personally identifiable information that we collect (such as your name, email address or phone number) will only be used for internal Ricochet purposes, stored as securely as possible, and will not be released to anyone outside Ricochet without your consent. Anonymous and aggregated data, such as the general demographics of our audience, may be shared with funders or other third-parties to support Ricochet’s work.

All Ricochet employees or contractors who work with personally identifiable data are contractually obligated to uphold your privacy and safeguard that information.

If you would like to opt out of any of our newsletters, unsubscribe instructions are at the bottom of every email. If you would like to opt out of the collection of personal information, or if you have any questions about our privacy policy, please email editor@ricochet.media.

Security

All personal information that we collect is stored in a secure environment. Persons working for Ricochet are likewise bound to respect the confidentiality of personal information.

We are committed to maintaining a high level of confidentiality. Notwithstanding that fact, no mechanism can guarantee perfect security, and there is always an element of risk when using the internet to transmit personal information.
