Except as otherwise provided herein, we will not, without your permission, share any personally identifiable information we collect from you, or any other personal information which, when combined with other information, can be used to identify you specifically (collectively, “Personal Information”), with third parties. So, for example, we will not sell your e-mail or IP address to advertisers. We may, however, use your Personal Information for administrative purposes (for example, to communicate with you if you’ve requested such communications). If we contract with consultants or other service-providers to perform administrative functions, such consultants or service-providers shall be required to keep your Personal Information confidential and only use your Personal Information to the extent necessary to perform their functions and not for any other purpose.
Your Control of Personal Information
You may limit the collection and use of different elements of your Personal Information by not participating in those activities for which we collect Personal Information (such as nominating a Social Innovation Rockstar™). You may choose to discontinue the collection, use, and disclosure of your Personal Information by limiting or discontinuing your use of the Site altogether.
The Site's web servers may collect anonymous logs during your visits to the Site. This information is used to create aggregate statistics, for example, when the Site is accessed, the pages which refer visitors to the Site, the type of web browsers visitors use, and which pages of the Site are viewed. These statistics help us understand how the Site is used and provide us with valuable information for improving the Site in the future. From time to time, we may elect to share such aggregate, non-personally identifiable information with advertisers and our partners, affiliates, consultants, suppliers and other third-parties.
Our Security Procedures
We have implemented reasonable security measures and safeguards to protect your Personal Information from interception, loss, misuse, and alteration. Our servers are kept in a secure physical environment and access to your Personal Information is strictly limited. Unfortunately, no security system is impenetrable and no digital data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we make no warranty regarding the security of any information you transmit to us, and such transmissions are made by you at your own risk. In compliance with applicable law, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of a security breach with respect to your Personal Information. We are not responsible for any information you share with other users or third parties.
If you are under the age of 13, please do not use the Site. In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we will not knowingly permit anyone under the age of 13 to provide Personal Information to us through the Site or otherwise. If we later learn that you are under the age of 13, we will take appropriate steps to remove your Personal Information from our database and restrict your access to the Site.
Any Personal Information that we collect, use, process and/or store is done so in accordance with applicable United States law and this Policy. The Personal Information that you submit to the Site will be transferred to the United States to be collected, used, processed and/or stored by us. If you are not a resident of the United States, you acknowledge and agree that (i) we may collect, use, process and/or store your Personal Information outside of your resident jurisdiction and (ii) United States law may differ from the laws of your resident jurisdiction.
Third parties may also collect information about you, through cookies or other technologies, when you link to their websites through the Site. We do not monitor or control the information collection or privacy practices of such third parties, and are not responsible for their practices or the content of their websites. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing any information to such sites.
Changes and Notice
We believe strongly in respecting your privacy. We will update this Policy only if and when necessary. When we do update the Policy, we will post the revised Policy here along with the effective date of such revisions. In addition, we will alert Site users to the revised Policy by posting a notice at the bottom of every page of the Site for a reasonable period of time. We will also attempt to e-mail you regarding such changes if you’ve joined our mailing list and provided us with a valid e-mail address. We will make every effort to limit these revisions, but you are ultimately responsible for making yourself aware of any such revisions so please revisit this page periodically. Changes to the Policy will take effect immediately upon their posting to the Site. Your continued use of the Site after the effective date of such revisions indicates your assent to same.
