Registration for Users
In order to access the Members Only features of incubator.org you must first complete the Request Invitation form and continue after that by registering online through our website. During registration, you are required to give contact information (such as first and last name and email address). Incubator.org collects personally identifiable information (PII) from our users during the initial signup process as well as during surveys or preference requests. We use this information to contact you with messages about incubator.org which you have expressed interest in receiving. You may opt out of these emails at any time.
Additional communications may include newsletters, press releases, announcements and updates about events, groups and pages, surveys, and unsubscribe confirmations.
Personal data processed by Incubator.org shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for the intended processing or legal purposes. Users have the right to request that their information be deleted, and once the request has been verified the data will be deleted within 30 days.

- Member Related Data:
- Member Support and Troubleshooting
- Operations and Transactions
- Communications and Announcements

Uses of Customer Information
Your name and email address is used only to send email that was requested. Incubator.org follows an opt-in permission-based email enrollment policy. Incubator.org will not send unsolicited, bulk or commercial offers, or advertisements. All emails contain links on how to unsubscribe from the client list. You may leave our list at any time for any reason. If you have any questions or feel that you received unsolicited email or an unsolicited message please contact us (see below).
Incubator.org will use personally identifiable information to contact you when responding to email support requests and other direct requests for information from Incubator.org. To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
From time to time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in web-based surveys. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name address and phone number(s)), demographic information (such as zip code) and personal preference information (such as your opinions). We use this information to better understand who is interested in our services and how we can make them better.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Incubator.org retains ownership of your data, as the data controller, and any information processing involving your data will be done by processors held to the same data privacy compliance standards as us. We agree that we will not rent, sell or otherwise provide your information to outside parties whom do not meet the appropriate compliance standards.
When you sign up to receive emails, we will share your enrollment information with our mailing and analytics providers so that our third party vendors can provide strategic and operational insight services to us. From time to time, Incubator.org may use a third-party vendor to fulfill promotions on our behalf as well. Any third parties or third party vendors are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose other than the purpose outlined in their contract. All third party vendors are expected to maintain the same level of compliance or better that we maintain at Incubator.org.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to (a) protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our company; (b) protect and defend Incubator.org’s rights or property or the users of our services, and (c) act under demanding circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our services or the public.
If you no longer wish to receive our communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each communication or by sending us a message. (See the bottom of this document, and please include your email address in the body of the message as well as writing the word, “unsubscribe” in the subject line.)
