At Human Tribe Project, we understand how challenging it is when you or a loved one is dealing with a crisis situation. Whether it is a medical crisis or something else, Human Tribe Project, LLC, an Arizona limited liability company (“Human Tribe Project”), wants to be able to facilitate support. We thank you for giving us the opportunity to help.
Information We Collect
The information we collect may be used to customize content, fulfill product purchases, improve our services and recognize and contact you. We may also use your information to auto-populate certain fields to save you from having to enter the same information multiple times.
Human Tribe Project may collect information about the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of those who visit humantribeproject.com. We collect this information to help administer our website, diagnose problems, mitigate fraud, and monitor traffic patterns in order to further develop and improve the design and layout of our site.
If you voluntarily post personally identifiable information, e.g. photos, documents, and information, to Tribe Pages, that information is accessible to other users, and you should be aware that it could be viewed, collected, or used by others, and could be used improperly. We are not responsible for information you post, and any misuse or improper collection of it is a violation of the Terms of Service, which are incorporated herein by reference, and should be reported to us. By using the Services, you consent to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.
The information we collect from you will vary depending on whether you are using humantribeproject.com as a Tribe Member, a Tribe Manager or simply to purchase a Tribe Tag. If any of the information you provide changes, you are responsible for updating it on humantribeproject.com.
Tribe Members must be invited to join a Tribe by either the Tribe Manager or an existing Tribe Member. Once an invitation is accepted, an individual must register to become a Tribe Member. When registering, you must provide your first and last name, how you know the beneficiary, a valid email address and a password for future access (the “Registration Information”). We use this information to administer and improve the Services, contact you and track the organic growth of tribes.
Tribe Managers are responsible for creating and maintaining individual Tribe Pages. Tribe Managers must provide the Registration Information as well as the following: Beneficiary name, email address, mailing address, and photo Beneficiary’s story Acknowledgment that he/she has the Beneficiary’s express permission to start the Tribe Page Email address of individuals to invite to join the Tribe
Purchasers of Tribe Tags
Purchasers of Tribe Tags must provide the Registration Information as well as a credit card and billing and shipping addresses.
While the majority of Tribe Pages are private in order to protect the privacy of the Beneficiaries and Tribe Members, in order to maximize the support a Beneficiary can receive, the name of the Beneficiary, profile picture, story and Tribe Tag purchase area are viewable by non-Tribe Members (the “Public Areas”). All other areas of the Tribe Pages, including the blog and guestbook, are private and only accessible to invited Tribe Members.
Creating and Maintaining Tribe Pages
Tribe Pages are created and maintained by Tribe Managers. If the Tribe Manager is not the Beneficiary, the Tribe Manager must have the express permission of the Beneficiary or his or her parent or legal guardian. When creating a Tribe Page, the Tribe Manager is responsible for inputting the Beneficiary’s name, profile picture, story (i.e., a description of the crisis and reason for starting the Tribe Page) and email addresses of individuals invited to become Tribe Members. Tribe Managers should use discretion in divulging personal, private or sensitive information in the Public Areas. The Tribe Manager will also register the Beneficiary so both the Tribe Manager and Beneficiary can access and update the blog. The blog and guestbook are private and viewable only by invited Tribe Members.
Because information on the blog and guestbook is private and often personal and sensitive, such information will not be visible to third party search engines such as Google, MSN and Yahoo.
The accuracy of the information you provide is extremely important. If any changes are made, please update your information with Human Tribe Project as soon as possible.
Canceling a Tribe Page
Tribe Pages will remain active until the Tribe Manager or Beneficiary cancels the Tribe Page. Please be diligent in canceling a Tribe Page when it is no longer needed to protect information posted on it.
Opinions and feedback can always be left on the Human Tribe Project blog. Any information you provide on the Human Tribe Project blog and in any survey, poll or email you voluntarily submit will only be used to better understand our users’ needs and to improve our Services.

Parents and legal guardians permitting those children who are 13 years of age or younger to use the humantribeproject.com, must be aware that any information voluntarily given by children in on Tribe Pages may be viewed by other Tribe Members or the public, if such information is given in the Public Areas.
