PRINCIPLES FOR ENGAGEMENT
The purpose of these principles is to clarify expectations related to (1) the use of information and ideas submitted to The Global Lab for Climate Finance by proponents, members and external experts and which is provided for the purpose of developing selected ideas and instrument pilots, and (2) the future use of instruments developed by The Lab’s analytical providers in conjunction with Lab members, proponents and external experts. Information includes all information provided to The Lab whether conveyed through written comments, in soft or hard copy documents, or verbally at meetings.
The work of The Lab and participation in it is based on the following understanding:
- The Lab is a non-proprietary, knowledge sharing initiative. By submitting information and ideas to The Lab, proponents, members and external experts agree that the ideas, information, and associated analysis may be used freely, developed, published, and modified by The Lab and by third parties.
- Information and ideas submitted to the Lab are not commercially confidential or commercially sensitive.
- The Lab will publish information on its website, about instrument analysis and decisions taken, transparently and in a timely way. In particular:
– A current list of Lab members will be maintained.
– Agendas and summaries of Lab Meetings and all decisions will be made available.
– The results of Lab analysis will be published upon completion of Phase 3 (detailed analysis of instruments).
- All Lab members, Working Group members, and analytical providers, will serve in expert, objective capacities. The Lab analysis will be objective and neutral between instruments.
- It is not incumbent on analytical providers to accept all or any views shared as part of ongoing analysis. Decisions taken by the Project Management Group, Lab Principals and their Advisors regarding Lab processes, including voting procedures to progress instruments to more advanced analytical phases, are final.
- These principles for engagement will be made available on The Lab website.

COLLECTION AND USE
CPI gathers two basic types of information through the Site: “Personal Information” and “Non-Personal Information.” Personal Information is information that identifies you as an individual; that is, your name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address, and profile information. Non-Personal Information is aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses, and any other information that does not reveal specific identifying information about you.
CPI collects your personal information in a variety of ways. Much of this information is provided directly from you. For example, when you sign up for Research and News Alerts on this website, you provide us with your email address.
CPI may also collect your name and e-mail address when you contact CPI for general information purposes so we can respond to your request, for example, if you contact us to subscribe to our email newsletter, or if you sign up for one of our events. You may unsubscribe from the newsletter by sending an e-mail with “unsubscribe” in the subject heading to the following e-mail address: email@example.com.
COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGY
CPI does not sell or rent your personal information under any circumstances. In addition, it is not our policy to share or disclose your personal information without first receiving your express permission, subject to the following exceptions:
- CPI may disclose your personal information to third party service providers that help provide services on our behalf (e.g., newsletter distribution service providers).
- CPI may disclose information about its users if required to do so by law or in its good-faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process.
- CPI may disclose information about its users to law enforcement officers or others to as required by law, respond to claims that any posting or other content violates the rights of third-parties, or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of, as appropriate, CPI, its users, or the general public.
- CPI may take your personal information and aggregate it with other users’ information (so that it is anonymous and does not identify you) and present the statistics to potential donors.

You may request to review, change and/or delete any personal information you have on file with us at any time by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
OUR POLICY TOWARDS CHILDREN
CPI does not knowingly or intentionally collect information from children under the age of 13.

NOTICE REGARDING SECURITY
CPI seeks to have security measures and tools in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as perfect security in an online environment.
