We respect your privacy. Your email address will only be visible to the two administrators on the project. We will not distribute it to anyone outside of the Great Sunflower Project without your permission. Other people who are signed up can email you from within the website. If you don't want them to do that, you can go to My account, click the edit tab and then uncheck the personal contact form.

We will show a dot on a map that indicates exactly where you have collected data but that dot will not be associated with your user name. We will use a numeric code id. The Great Sunflower Project revolves around sharing data with others, and hiding data from the public and from scientists should only be done when absolutely necessary. If you need us to conceal a location from the general public, please contact us and we will find a way to do so.
