Privacy Policy

At Planeterra, we are committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring that your personal information is handled in a safe and responsible manner. This Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, disclose, and protect your information when you visit our website (the “Site”).

Information We Collect

  • Personal Information: We may collect personal information that you voluntarily provide to us when you register on our Site, subscribe to our newsletter, make a donation, or contact us. This information may include your name, email address, phone number, mailing address, and payment information.
  • Non-Personal Information: We may automatically collect non-personal information about your visit to our Site, such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, pages viewed, and the dates/times of your visits. This information helps us understand how visitors use our Site and improve its functionality.


An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Cookies: If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment.

Use of Information

We use the information we collect for various purposes, including:

  • To process donations and provide receipts
  • To send newsletters and updates about our projects and activities
  • To respond to inquiries and provide customer support
  • To improve our Site and enhance user experience
  • To comply with legal obligations

Sharing of Information

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personal information to outside parties except as described below:

  • Service Providers: We may share your information with third-party service providers who assist us in operating our Site, conducting our business, or servicing you, as long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.
  • Legal Requirements: We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Data Security

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. However, please note that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.

Your Rights

You have the right to:

  • Access the personal information we hold about you
  • Request corrections to any inaccurate or incomplete information
  • Request the deletion of your personal information. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes
  • Opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these third-party websites and encourage you to review their privacy policies.
