We and our service providers may collect the following information from and about you when you interact with the Service.
Log files and analytics. Similar to many websites, we and our service providers automatically collect certain information when you visit the Service, including your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (which identifies the computer or service provider that you use to access the Services), information about your browser type, referrer headers, unique device identifiers, geographic location, operating system, date/time stamp, and other software and hardware information. One of our third-party service providers is Google Analytics, which collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. To learn more about how Google Analytics collects and uses your data when you use the Services, and how you can control the information sent to Google Analytics, please review https://google.com/policies/privacy/partners.
Web beacons and other tracking technologies. We and third parties including our service providers may use other tracking tools, including pixel tags or web beacons to collect information about your use of the Service. These are small electronic images embedded in web content and email messages, and are ordinarily not visible to users. Like cookies, web beacons enable us and our service providers to track pages and content accessed and viewed by users. Also, when we send HTML-formatted (as opposed to plain text) emails to you, web beacons may be embedded in the emails. Web beacons in emails may recognize activities such as when an email was opened, by which IP address, how many times an email was forwarded, which links in the email were clicked, and the like. Web beacons cannot be declined when delivered via a regular web page. If you do not wish to receive Web Beacons via email, you will need to disable HTML images or refuse HTML emails via your email software.
Do Not Track Signals. At this time, our Services do not respond to “do not track” signals, including do not track signals sent from web browsers.
We may collect a variety of information about you, when you provide it to us via means including email, telephone, letter, or via a third-party service provider (which we may use, for example, for event registration). In particular, you may provide us with information when you opt-in to receive newsletters or updates; register for an event we are hosting or sponsoring; submit information about your organization and/or yourself as part of a grant proposal or mission investment; send us email messages; or contact us for information or support. In addition, we may receive information about you from third parties who refer you to us for grantmaking purposes, and we may collect information from social media profiles that we have access to either publicly or with your permission. Categories of personal data we may collect by these means may include:
We use and process information we collect from and about you to in the following ways (and if you are a EU resident, under the stated legal bases):
With third-party service providers. LEF relies on a number of other companies, agents, and/or contractors to perform services on our behalf or to assist us in operating and providing the Services to you. For example, we may engage third-party service providers to develop or update our website, provide marketing, communications, website hosting, infrastructure and IT services, data analytics, legal and accounting services, consulting, and administrative support. In the course of providing such services to us, these other companies may have access to information about you, including personal information. Some third-party service providers may gather information from you directly (for example, for event registration), and may have their own privacy policies concerning information they collect.
With the public. We may share aggregate, non-identifiable information about our operations, including data/analytics concerning use of the Service, aggregate information about grant recipients, and the like.
Your California Privacy Rights. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what personal information (if any) we may have disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year, including the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made once a year and are free of charge. If you would like to make a request pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, please do so via the contact information below. We currently do not share any personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
Storage and transfer. Data we collect from and about you may be stored, accessed by our employees and service providers, and/or processed in your jurisdiction, or in any other jurisdiction where we or our service providers have facilities. If you are in the European Economic Area, we use acceptable data transfer mechanisms when they are required, such as the EU Standard Contractual Clauses and Privacy Shield frameworks.
Data retention. We will store personally identifiable information until it is no longer needed to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected or as otherwise required or permitted by law. After such time, we will either delete or anonymize personally identifiable information or, if this is not practicable, we will securely store and not process it until deletion is possible.
Email opt-out. If you receive marketing emails or newsletters from us, you may opt out by clicking the “unsubscribe” link in the email.
Other rights. To the extent provided by applicable laws (including the GDPR), you also may have the right (subject to appropriate identity verification) to:
