The Inconvenient Indian

This web site (the “Web Site”) is operated by Inconvenient Indian (“we”, “us” and/or “our”). This Privacy Policy sets forth our policy with respect to information that is collected from you. This Privacy Policy & Terms of Use have been updated as of September 25, 2019 to support GDPR.  Digital and development teams at Inconvenient Indian understand GDPR regulations.

General Policy

This website has a firm commitment to internet privacy. You can visit most portions of this website without telling us who you are and without revealing any personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”). 

The only information we collect from a normal Web Site visit is information that cannot be used to specifically identify you (“Non-Personal Information”), which usually includes the name of your internet service provider, the browser and type of machine you are using, the web site that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time you request them.

Personal Information

The only time we collect Personal Information is when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact us with inquiries or participate in a user-contend submission campaign. Wherever we collect Personal Information we make an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy. 

By voluntarily providing us with Personal Information, you are  consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

How We Use the Information

Non-Personal Information

We use the Non-Personal Information collected to generate statistics and measure website activity in order to improve our impact in this work, and make our website a stronger tool for our visitors.

Personal Information

We use the Personal Information you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Information for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Information in connection with the reason for which it was provided. If we intend on using any Personal Information in any manner that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy, we will inform you of the anticipated use before the Personal Information is collected.

Aggregated Personal Information

In an ongoing effort to accomplish our mission and understand our website visitors, we may conduct research on its visitor’s demographics and interests based on the Personal Information and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and may share this aggregate information with its affiliates and allies. We may also disclose aggregated visitor statistics in order to describe the size, scope, and demographics of its network. This aggregate information does not identify you personally.


Both Personal Information and Non-Personal Information collected in accordance with this Privacy Policy may be stored by itself or it may be included in databases owned and maintained by our affiliates, agents or service providers.

When We Share the Information

We will not sell your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Information with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Submission Pages

We do not share the information you’ve given us on submission pages with unaffiliated groups or individuals without your explicit permission. 

Legal requirements

We may disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Inconvenient Indian, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Web Site visitors or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.


We make great efforts to protect the Personal Information provided via the website from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, email sent to or from the Web Site may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email.


Like most websites, our website may place a “cookie,” or small file, in the browser files of a visitor’s computer. We use cookies to save information you give us so that you don’t have to re-enter it each time you visit our website. 

Updating the Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change its policy at any time and from time to time without prior notice as necessary to support the movement. Please review this Privacy Policy periodically, and especially before you provide any Personal Information. This Privacy Policy was last updated on the date indicated above. Your continued use of the website after any changes are made to this Privacy Policy indicates your agreement with the terms of the changed Privacy Policy.


This Privacy Policy only applies to information collected by us through the website. The Privacy Policy does not apply to any unsolicited information provided to us through the website or through any other means. This includes, but is not limited to, information posted to any public areas of the website and any unsolicited submissions. All such information will be treated as public information.

Links to Other Websites

This Privacy Policy applies only to the website. The website may contain links to other websites not operated or controlled by us. The policies and procedures we described here do not apply to the Third Party Sites. The links from the website do not imply that we endorse or have reviewed the Third Party Sites. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.

Social Media

Through the website, you can choose to access certain social media web sites and services that are owned and controlled by third parties (e.g. Facebook and Twitter) (the “Social Media Services”). When you elect to access and use the Social Media Services, you will be sharing your information (which will include personal information if you elect to share such information) with those Social Media Services. As with other Third Party Sites, the information that you share with the Social Media Services will be governed by the privacy policies and terms of service of the providers of such Social Media Services and not by the policies and procedures we describe here.
