Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We do not share any of your personal information with any other organization, with some exceptions:
- We will share your information if it is necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to process a donation to the LCS via PayPal or Amazon Pay.
- If you are involved in an activity on behalf of the LCS, such as a local volunteer for the biannual Language Creation Conference, or if the LCS is working on your behalf, such as brokering a conlanging job, then we may need to share your contact information with others. We will ask for your permission beforehand.
- When you join the LCS, your name and email address are automatically added to our members email list and to our Slack team. Other members can view this information (but not the public). You may opt out of either or both of these groups by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We may share your information on a need-to-know basis with website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting the nonprofit, or providing LCS membership benefits or LCS conference information to you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.
- We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety.
