We’re committed to keeping your data secure, your private information private, and being transparent about our practices.
Effective date: May 23, 2018
We take your privacy extremely seriously and would like to describe how we collect, use and protect your information when you access our website(s), products, and services (collectively, the “Services”).
We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 16. If you are under 16, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 16, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 16 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What Information does Run for Something Collect?
Information You Provide to Us
We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us. When you register for our listserv, register to run for office, apply for endorsement, apply to become a volunteer or a mentor, we ask you a number of questions related to your demographic and professional life. Run for Something stores this data in our databases to provide you with our Services.
In keeping with standard online privacy practices, users should not include any highly sensitive information (such as social security numbers, financial information, or “protected health information” (as that term is defined by the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act)) in any emails or online forms so that such data does not transfer to our databases (even if only temporarily).
By completing a form on runforsomething.net or in the GoRunforSomething Slack channel, we may communicate with you, for example by calling or texting you at the phone number you provide or emailing you about your use of the Services. Also, we may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. This confirmation helps enhance our engagement with you and generally improve our Services. If you do not want to receive communications from us, please indicate your preference by sending an email to email@example.com.
Information Collected Automatically
Whenever you interact with our website, we automatically receive from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, “cookie” information, the type of browser and/or device you’re using to access our Services, and the page or feature you requested. “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Services are visited and by how many people. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features. We may use this data to customize content for you that we think you might like, based on your usage patterns, and generally to improve the Services.
Third Party Analytics Services
We use third party analytics services in order to better understand user engagement with the Services. When a user browses or uses the Services, these third party analytics services may collect the user’s IP address, browser type, and approximate location (based on the IP address). They may also use web logs or web beacons and may set and access cookies on your computer or other device. In order to refine our understanding of user engagement, we provide these services with a user’s name and email address (which we collected as part of the user’s account registration process).
Does Run for Something Share Personal Information?
We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. However, we may share your Personal Information with third parties as described in this section:
Agents and vendors: We partner with other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them, including in some cases the Personal Information you have provided to us, in order to make the Services available to you. For example, we may use third party hosting providers or software developers to help implement and maintain the Services. However, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
Business Transfers: If we are involved in a reorganization, merger, acquisition or sale of our assets, your information may be transferred as part of that deal. We will notify you (for example, via a message to the email address associated with your account) of any such deal and outline your choices in that event.
Is Personal Information about me secure?
We will use every possible diligent effort to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information we hold in our records, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.
What Personal Information can I access?
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org for access to, or to update or delete, your Personal Information that Run for Something has collected.
Transfer to the U.S. or Other Countries
We currently use datacenter facilities located exclusively in the United States. Your information will be stored and processed in the United States or other countries where we decide to maintain datacenter facilities in the future. By using the Services, you consent to the transfer of information outside of your country, even if your country has more rigorous data protection standards. For any Personal Information that may be transferred from the European Economic Area, please see the EU Residents section below, including details about our Privacy Shield certification.
California Code Notice
Under California Civil Code Sections 1798.83-1798.84, California residents are entitled to contact us to prevent disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for such third parties’ direct marketing purposes; in order to submit such a request, please contact us at email@example.com.
