1. Information We Collect
For those who are just checking our site out, we only collect non-personally identifiable information. For anyone who messages us, applies for membership, or is a member, in order to provide these services, we must use information about you. The types of information we use depend on the service you are using.
1.1 Personally Identifiable Information
Information and content you provide. We collect the content, communications and other information you provide when you use our Services, including when you sign up for an account, create or share content, and message or communicate with others. This can include information in or about the content you provide (like metadata), such as the location of a photo or the date a file was created.
We also collect your billing information, such as your legal name, address, email address, and card information.
1.2 Non-Personally Identifiable Information
As with any time you use the internet, a lot of information is being collected and shared to make your experience possible. We do not intentionally collect this information, but we do use it to listen to and satisfy the needs of our community.
Your IP addresses, location data, browser activity, product descriptions viewed, videos watched, shopping cart data, and certain user preferences are all collected.
2. How We Use This Information
2.1 To Provide Services
We mainly use the information we collect to provide better services to you and/or to let you know about changes in our business, or the services we provide. Occasionally, we use the information we collect to offer opportunities and help you connect with other people we think you will benefit from being connected to.
We use credit card processing companies to bill users for rent and other services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.
We do not use any of our collected information to manipulate or otherwise persuade you to take any course of action. Whenever we are using the data to make decisions, you will be able to read about it in the forum.
Most importantly, we do not knowingly rent or sell your information to any person or organization.
2.2 To Secure Clients & Partnerships
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and potential clients. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We may partner with another party to provide specific services, e.g., an additional podcast. When a user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
3. Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number provided on our website:
See what data we have about you, if any.
Change/correct any data we have about you.
Have us delete any data we have about you.
Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
Please note, certain content, like posts in CrossWalk™ or comments on SubStandard™, may be kept on file in order to resolve membership termination issues. As a general rule, we suggest you do not post or share anything that may later be used against you by another member, Subject PR or the government.
4.1 Protective Measures
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g., billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
If you are using a private browsing mode, app, or extension on your browser, please be aware that doing so will prevent you from getting the full value of our services.
4.3 Outbound Links
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
4.4 How We Respond to “Do Not Track” Signals
Some web browsers have “Do Not Track” or similar features that allow you to tell each website you visit that you do not want your activities on that website tracked. We use Google Analytics, which at present does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals and consequently, our website will continue to collect information about you even if your browser’s “Do Not Track” feature is activated.
5. Surveys, Polls & Contests
From time to time we may collect information via surveys, polls and contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey and poll information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of site users and bettering the common good.
6. Notification of Changes
Code of Conduct
To keep Intersection(AL)™ safe and productive, these are our codes. Breaking them means getting kicked out and blacklisted with no refund.
1. Be Old Enough
The normal minimum age for using our website is 16 years of age. We do make certain exceptions for young leaders with written parental consent.
2. Fill Out Your Profile
In order to maintain a level of authenticity and accountability, we require all members to have a picture of their face and to use their real name. For those naming themselves, we will need to see public proof of the change. You can email us here for details.
3. Be Respectful
All Intersection(AL)™ members are activists. As such, we all have at least one issue/cause that we are (fiercely) passionate about. We are all part of the solution in some area(s) and part of the problem in others. However, we are all here to create positive impact. Debates are natural, but a basic level of respect is required. If you don't have it in you to educate someone, point them to the resources that can.
4. No Hate Speech or Bullying
We have zero tolerance for any discriminating or hateful speech regarding race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or identity. Character assassinations are also not allowed. If you deem a person is incapable of understanding your perspective, just walk away.
5. No Promotions or Spam
This is not a business networking group. Unless you're asking about how to do your business better, save that talk for LinkedIn. This also isn't a place for organizers and canvassers to meet their quotas, use change.org or social media for that. Do not add members' information onto any lists (e.g., email marketing lists) without their prior written consent.
6. Respect Everyone's Privacy
Being part of this network requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make forums great, but may also be sensitive and private. You must get written consent from the member(s) and Subject PR before sharing another's information, post, or comment.
7. Protect Copyrights and Intellectual Property Rights
If you are sharing anything that is not yours, you are expected to attach the name of the creator and a backlink to their work. If you cannot find the creator, mention that. Laziness here will be noted, and you might be removed if it has become an obvious habit.
8. No Medical or Legal Advice
This is a legal issue. You may ask for the name of a medical professional or a lawyer/law practice, but we do not allow medical or legal diagnoses for humans or animals. Please consult your doctor, veterinarian, or attorney.
9. Stay on Topic
Keep the conversation relevant to the thread created by the Original Poster (OP). This helps everyone find the information they need when they need it.
10. Police Yourselves
Our team is small. So if you see any violation of the codes above, say something on the thread/post/comment. Doing so publicly minimizes how often offenses will occur. But if you do not feel safe doing that, you can use the 'Report' feature and we will do our best to address it.
1. Submitting an Application
Membership admittance is at the sole discretion of Subject PR and it reserves the right to refuse membership.
When you submit an application, if you are accepted, you will receive an email within 14 days. This email will include a link to the payment portal for the level you were approved for.
If it has been more than 14 days since you submitted your application, you have not been accepted. Please feel free to reapply with different evidence of your activist efforts.
2. Supply of the Specified Service
Our Specified Services is a membership platform based on access to the web pages and apps that we host on our website. As a member, you are paying for that access. The quality of the features and benefits offered beyond that access depend largely on the other members and you.
We may, at any time, without notifying you, make any changes to the Specified Service which are necessary to comply with any safety or other statutory requirements and/or which do not materially affect the nature or quality of the Specified Service.
We will notify you in writing prior to making any additions, deletions or other revisions to the Specified Service or to these Terms.
2.2 Upgrading & Downgrading
Once you are accepted to join Intersection(AL)™, the level of your membership is up to you. However, due to the limitations of our website, we will need to help you change between each level. We recommend waiting until your billing cycle is almost up to avoid having to pay twice for the same month.
2.3 Customer Service
If you have problems or questions regarding your membership, please contact Subject PR for assistance. Allow up to seven (7) days for a response to your inquiry. Emails sent during weekend or holiday hours will be opened the next business day.
3.1 Member Dues
Our memberships consist of 3 levels: Slacktivist, Activist, and Pro Activist which cost $5, $10, and $25 per month respectively.
Membership is billed monthly from the date of submitting the application until it is canceled.
Should a Monthly Payment be late or remain unpaid the Network will suspend the membership by revoking access.
If overdue Monthly Payments are not received within 14 days of the due date, and you haven't reached out to us request a hold or a break, you might not be allowed to rejoin.
3.2 Payment Options
We use Wix Payments to process our membership payments. Wix accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover, AMEX, Diners, CUP, JCB and Maestro, and debit card payments. Wix does not accept personal checks, money orders or direct bank transfers or cash, and neither do we.
We wish for members to receive a return on their investment many times over through full involvement in the Specified Services, however, you retain responsibility for making the very most of the many opportunities membership offers.
Subject PR does not offer refunds or early terminations on its memberships. You are free to terminate your membership whenever you want by using the My Account page on your profile. Any concerns, questions regarding membership, or cancellation requests should be submitted to Subject PR and allow for up to seven (7) business days response/processing time.
4. Warranties and Liability
We warrant to you that the Specified Service will be provided using reasonable care and skill as far as reasonably possible. Where we use the services of any agent or third party (such as speakers at events), we do not give any warranty, guarantee or indemnity in that respect.
As a member, you agree to hold Subject PR for harmless of profit or any indirect, special or consequential loss, damage costs, expenses or other claims (whether caused by the our negligence, our agents', or otherwise) which arise out of or in connection with the provision of the Specified Service and the entire liability of Subject PR under or in connection with the Specified Service shall not exceed twice the amount of our charges for the provision of the Specified Service, except as expressly provided in these Terms. This warranty is in lieu of all other Terms, Conditions and Warranties, expressed or implied, statutory or otherwise, and any other liabilities whatsoever and howsoever arising.
Subject PR shall not be liable to you or be deemed to be in breach of these Terms by reason of any delay in performing, or any failure to perform, any of Subject PR’s obligations in relation to the Specified Service, if the delay or failure is due to any cause beyond our reasonable control, and time shall not be of the essence.
4.2 Participation Disclaimer

5. Termination of Membership
Either party may at any time terminate this agreement by immediate written notice if the other commits any material breach of these Terms or goes into liquidation, becomes bankrupt, makes a voluntary arrangement with its creditors or has a receiver or administrator appointed.
Upon termination of this agreement for whatever reason, all sums owed by you to Subject PR shall become due and payable by you with immediate effect.
No failure or delay by either party in exercising any of its rights under these Terms shall be deemed to be a waiver of that right, and no waiver by either party of any breach of these Terms by the other shall be considered as a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision.
