  • Attend or participate in online and/or in-person events.
  • Contact us directly by email, phone, social media or other communications methods.

Cookies

We use cookies on MobLab websites to enhance the services you request and collect aggregate statistics on website usage. We do not view, analyze or seek to collect personally identifiable analytics data.

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies. This may limit some website functionality – cookies enable us to recognize your browser and provide features that are tailored to your needs – but our website is designed to function without cookies.

MobLab does not knowingly collect information from children. We further do not knowingly collect and store sensitive consumer information such as Social Security Numbers. If we are made aware we have received such information we will delete it from our servers.

Email List Privacy

MobLab maintains one or more email lists. When you subscribe to a MobLab email list you will receive a confirmation message.

MobLab uses your email address to send you requested emails. We do not share your email address, name or other subscriber data with outside organizations. We use a third party (MailChimp)to provide email list hosting and management services. This party collects and stores personally identifiable information including but not limited to email address, name and other information you may provide. This party also collects information about emails that are opened and links clicked. We may use this information to provide and improve email content.

You may remove your name from our email list at any time using the unsubscribe link in a message or sending a request to editor@mobilisationlab.org.

Use of Your Information

Disclosure of Your Information

There may be limited times when we disclose your personal information to third parties. This disclosure may be required for us to operate or provide your access to our Service, comply with our legal obligations, enforce our policies, or prevent fraud or illegal activity perpetrated through our services. We do not disclose your personally identifiable information to third-parties for advertising or promotional purposes.

If we are required by law to disclose information you submitted, we will attempt to provide you with notice (unless we are prohibited) that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by email, if you have given us an email address, or by postal mail if you have entered a postal address. We will independently object to overly broad requests for access to information about users of our site. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information.

Security

We protect your information using reasonable security measures taking into account the types of information we collect and store and the types of risks we face.
