- Automatically Collected Information. Whenever you interact with the Website, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, geolocation data, device identification, “cookie” information, the type of device you’re using to access the Website, the amount of time spent on the Website, 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 on the Website 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 use the data we automatically collect from you to improve the Website – for example, this data can tell us how often users use a particular feature of the Website, and we can use that knowledge to make the Website interesting to as many users as possible. We collect this information with your consent, to perform our contract with you, and for our legitimate interest of providing a smooth user experience on the Website.
DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION.
We may disclose your personal
information as detailed in this section.
- Personnel and Third Party Service Providers. We employ personnel and engage other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your personal information with them to provide products or services to you. For example, as noted above, we use a third party payment processor to process payments on our behalf. As another example, we collect scholarship and grant applications through the Foundant platform.
- Analytics Services. We use Google Analytics to understand how visitors engage with our Services. You can learn more about the information that Google has access to at the following website: .
- Business Transfers. If we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, personal information could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
- Legal Compliance. We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we believe is necessary to comply with governmental requests, law enforcement or court orders, or enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements.
- SECURITY. We use commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. In addition, we rely on the technical safeguards provided by the third party service providers we use to host, store, and process your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant that your personal information on the Website may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. Except as provided under applicable laws, we are not responsible to our users or to any third party due to any such loss, misuse, or alteration.
- Who To Exercise Your Rights With. If we have collected your personal information directly from you, we are a “controller” of that personal information and you can exercise your rights with respect to your personal information by following the instructions in Section 5.2. However, if we have collected your personal information as a result of a nonprofit organization submitting a grant application, we are a “processor” of your personal information and that nonprofit organization controls our use of your personal information and determines how and for what purpose we process your personal information.
- How to Access, Modify, or Delete Information. If we are a controller of your personal information and you would like to access, modify or remove your information (including your information in the Scholar Directory), please submit your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please understand, however, that it may be impossible to delete this information completely, due to backups and records of deletions.
- RETENTION OF INFORMATION. Subject to your right to request deletion of your personal information in accordance with Section 5, we will retain your personal information as long as needed to maintain the Scholar Directory, for your use of the Website, your approved receipt of communications from us, our compliance with legal obligations, and to protect our or other’s interests.
- HOW WE RESPOND TO DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS. We do not track you or collect your personal information across third party websites or online services. Thus, we do not receive Do-Not-Track signals, or other similar signals. To the extent that we do receive any such signals, we will not comply with them as it is not an aspect of the functionality of the Website.
- AGE OF USERS. We do not knowingly collect or solicit information from anyone under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.
- CHANGES TO POLICY. We’re constantly trying to improve the Website, so we may need to change this Policy from time to time as well. The date of the last modification will be posted at the beginning of this Policy. It is your responsibility to check from time to time for updates. By continuing to access or use the Website, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Policy.
- CONTACT US. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this Policy, please send us a detailed message to email@example.com, and we will try to resolve your concerns.
