Information Collection and Use by One Tree Foundation
In connection with certain portions of the Site and Services, 1-tree.org allows members to set up unique personal profiles that can be linked together through networks of friends and organizations. 1-tree.org members can view each other’s profiles, communicate with each other, share photos and videos, post journals and comments, and describe their interests. 1-tree.org members can change their profile information at any time and can control how other members and the Service communicates with them.
When you sign up as a member or for any other service or promotion that requires registration, 1-tree.org will ask you for personal information (such as your name, email address and an account password). 1-tree.org collects such submitted personal information to authenticate members and to send notifications to those members relating to the Service. 1-tree.org also may collect other profile data including but not limited to: personal interests, gender, age, education and occupation in order to assist members in finding and communicating with each other.
Member profile information, including without limitation photos, is displayed to people in order to facilitate interaction in the 1-tree.org community. Email addresses are used for the purposes of inviting new friends to join 1-tree.org, to add users to members' friends' networks, and to send notifications related to the Service and 1-tree.org. With the exception of inviting friends, adding friends, and notifications, a member’s email address is not shared or displayed to people within a personal network. Members within a personal network communicate on the Site with each other through the Service, without disclosing their email addresses. Members' full names are never directly revealed to other members. To facilitate searching and finding friends and acquaintances on the Service, 1-tree.org allows users to search for members using first and last name, email address, and schools and/or companies where users may have attended or worked.
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post public information to blogs, message boards, chat rooms or any other public forums such information can be accessed by the public and can in turn be used by those people to send you unsolicited communications.
1-tree.org may also log non-personally-identifiable information including IP address, profile information, aggregate user data, and browser type, from users and members of the Site. This data is used to manage the Site, track usage and improve the Service. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes. This non-personally-identifiable aggregated information, such as the number of users that clicked on a particular link, may be shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to members. Such information does not identify you individually.
1-tree.org is a general audience site and does not knowingly collect or solicit or intend to collect any personal information from anyone under 14 years of age. If you are under 14, please do not attempt to register on the Site or send any personal information about yourself. No one under age 14 may provide any personal information on the Site. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 14 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 14, please contact us at
Invitations and Other Communications to Non-members
One Tree Foundation members can invite friends to join the Service by sending invitation emails via our automated invitation system. 1-tree.org stores the email addresses that members provide so that the respondents may be added to the friend's list of the members sending the invitations, and also to send reminders of the invitations. 1-tree.org does not sell these email addresses or use them to send any other communication besides invitations, invitation reminders (up to three (3) per email address). Recipients of invitations from 1-tree.org may contact 1-tree.org to request the removal of their information from our database.
1-tree.org members may also store email addresses of people they know in their internal 1-tree.org address book and may also choose to send invitations and other communications to those addresses.
