Privacy Policy

Privacy is one of our core values. In fact, it's one of the reasons Uncommon in Common exists. Here's what privacy means to us.

We do not share your data, including email and mailing address, with third parties under any circumstances. We do not display advertising.

Uncommon in Common is a community site, so by default, content you post is viewable by any active member. You will always be in charge of whether people who are not members of the community can view your content. If parts of the site are intended to be publicly viewable, we will make that abundantly clear before you contribute to them. You will have a choice whenever possible.

Once the site is active and you can add content, you will be able to access and download your data at any time.

The Uncommon in Common site uses SSL throughout. If portions of a page's content do not utilize SSL, we will work to address it if at all possible.

Only the core team developing Uncommon in Common has access to the stored data contributed to or generated by using the site.

You have control over which emails you receive. We will give you the opportunity to opt-in to a new email newsletter or notification, rather than require you to opt-out.

With the exception of Google Analytics on certain pages, payment buttons, hosted fonts, and external code libraries, we do not serve third-party content on the site.

The Uncommon in Common site is hosted on Heroku, a respected cloud application platform. We benefit continuously from Heroku's expertise in servers and systems, security and scaling.

Credit card payments are processed by Braintree. We never see nor store your credit card information.

If there is a privacy violation, we will disclose and rectify the issue as quickly as possible.


This is Version 1.0 of Uncommon in Common's Privacy Policy, posted November 29, 2012. It is inspired by the fine example set by Pinboard. The Privacy Policy can and will be updated as the site and community grow. New versions will be posted here. If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to share them:
