Additional information for European users

In relation to marketing communications such as fundraising and campaign emails, we will provide you with an “opt in” or “opt out” mechanism depending on where you are located when we collect your Personal Data.

Laudato Si‘ Movement volunteers or event hosts may have access to your contact information, including your name, email address, telephone number, and social media account IDs, to reach out to you about a specific campaign or event. They may contact you directly or through Laudato Si‘ Movement.
Laudato Si‘ Movement event attendees, chapter participants, volunteers, or those interested in events, chapters, or volunteers
Members of the public who would like information about events, chapters, or volunteers may find your Personal Data, including your name, email address, language, personal comments, institutional affiliation, street address, and city, state/province, and country of residence through publicly available spreadsheets and maps on our Website. We will always ask your consent before sharing this information, and you can request to have it removed at any time by emailing [email protected].
Targets of Laudato Si‘ Movement campaigns
For petitions, letters to the editor, and surveys you have voluntarily 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.
Laudato Si‘ Movement Petition creators
When you sign a petition created on Laudato Si‘ Movement’s Website, we provide your name, city, and country to the petition creator so they can deliver it to the campaign target (see above).
Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties
Laudato Si‘ Movement sometimes hires service providers and other companies to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases, social media networks, cloud computing services, and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we take precautions to provide them only with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
If you link your account with a third-party service, we share the information you authorize with that third-party service. If you log in to the Website using Facebook, Facebook directly collects information about your use of the Website. We also offer social sharing features that let you share content or actions you take on our Website with other media. Your use of these features enables the sharing of certain information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the third party that provides the social sharing feature. For more information on this, please see the section on “Social Media” below.
If you are a resident of California, you may have the right to learn additional information about your personal information collected through this Site. California residents who have an established business relationship with us may request and obtain information, free of charge and on an annual basis, about personal information that we shared with other businesses for their own direct marketing use within the prior calendar year (as provided in California’s “Shine the Light Law”). If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personal information shared with third parties and the names and addresses of all third parties with whom we shared this information in the immediately preceding calendar year. To obtain this information, please write to us using the contact information below, with “California Shine the Light Privacy Request” in the subject line as well as in the body of your message. We will then respond to your mailing address with the requested information.
We work with Stripe to help process donations and credit card transactions and other payment methods when you donate to Laudato Si‘ Movement. These payment processors will store certain Personal Data about you. Please refer to their privacy policies to learn more about how they use and process your Personal Data.
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 Laudato Si‘ Movement, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Website visitors or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
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 Data 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 a digital “fingerprint” of your email address to Facebook—we don’t send your actual email address, but instead a 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 Laudato Si‘ Movement 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 Laudato Si‘ Movement email address matches your Facebook email address, Laudato Si‘ Movement 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 —and your ability to opt out of this program, please see
https://www.facebook.com/business/help/112061095610075 and Facebook’s data policy at https://en-gb.facebook.com/policy.php.
How do we keep your Personal Information safe?
Laudato Si‘ Movement 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 technical and organizational security measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your Personal Data. 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 or otherwise provide through this Website.
Laudato Si‘ Movement also strives to ensure, along with its payment processor, 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 Laudato Si‘ Movement, 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 Laudato Si‘ Movement. Laudato Si‘ Movement does not sell or otherwise disclose such visitor payment information outside the organization.
Do we transfer data cross border?
By providing your Personal Data through the Services you acknowledge that your Personal Data is transferred to and accessed by our personnel in the United States.
Additional information for European users
Where our service providers or other third parties (identified above) based outside the European Economic Area or UK receive personal information, we ensure the transfer is either (a) to a country deemed to provide an adequate level of protection by the European Commission, the UK or Switzerland or (b) pursuant to specific contracts approved by the European Commission or the relevant local regulator. Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your Personal Data out of the EEA, UK or Switzerland.
How long will you use my Personal Data?
We will only retain your Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your Personal Data, the purposes for which we process your Personal Data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
A large part of our data activities are focused on understanding our engagement efforts and finding out which supporters are the most active, and have been active for the longest period of time. This lets us know if we are providing our supporters with timely and engaging opportunities to take meaningful action on the issues they care about. We will take these considerations into account in determining the appropriate retention period, including the use and application of metrics and data tools to consider supporter engagement and to look at the trajectory of engaged supporters over time. Further details of retention periods for different aspects of your Personal Data are available by emailing [email protected].
We continually review what information we hold and will delete personal data which is no longer required.
What are my legal rights in respect of my Personal Data?
We will comply with any rights provided to you under applicable law. In addition, if you have an account with us, you can review and change your Personal Data by logging into your account and visiting your account profile page.
You may also send us an email at [email protected]
to request access to, correct, or delete any Personal Data that you have provided to us. We may not accommodate a request to change information if believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
Additional information for European users

- Request access to your personal information
- Request correction of your personal information

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month, although we will notify you if it will take longer.
You have the right to make a complaint at any time to your supervisory authority for data protection issues. A list of supervisory authorities in the EEA is available here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/index_en.htm.
If you are in the UK, you have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office, the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk). We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the supervisory authority so please contact us in the first instance using the contact details set out below.
