The Types Of Information We Collect From You Via The Website.
When you browse the Website, with the exception of your IP address and location information that is not address-specific, we do not collect personally identifiable information about you unless you affirmatively provide it to us. This means that, unless you choose to provide such information, we will not know your name, email address or any other personally identifiable information (other than your IP address) about you just because you browse the Website. We do collect your IP address when you visit the Website and use this information to determine your geographic location so that we may improve and optimize your experience on the Website.
The process to register students to participate in certain programs of ours, such as the BUILD COVID – 19 Virtual Design Challenge (“Programs”), may ask for personally identifiable information about you or your family members, including name, age, birth date, email address, address, phone number, grade, teacher’s name, school name, and school address.
We may collect information that does not personally identify you when you visit our Website. We may store and disclose aggregated non-personally identifying information collected through the Website. We own and can use non-personally identifying information without restriction.
You do not have to create an account in order to use or access the Website. However, if you wish to access certain features of the Website available only to registered users, including participating in a Program, you may be asked to provide a name, age, birth date, email address, home address, phone number, grade, teacher name, school name, and school address, and to use certain features, such as creating a portfolio to save your work, we will require you to create an account with a username and a password (all information provided by you, collectively, the “Registration Information”) to protect your account from unauthorized access.
How We Use Personally Identifiable Information We Collect From You Via The Website.
As a non-profit dedicated to proving the power of experiential learning through entrepreneurship and igniting the potential of youth in under-resourced communities, BUILD will use the information it receives from your visit to the Website to further empower youths in under-resourced communities by providing services, soliciting and receiving feedback, and onboarding and coordinating student-participant engagement. Build may use your personally identifiable information to send you information about our upcoming programs or those of our partners or sponsors, solicit donations for itself, and to inform you about our products and services or those of our partners and sponsors.
The information, including Registration Information, you provide us through the Website may be disclosed or processed by third parties under contract with us. When your personally identifiable information is provided to these third parties, we require them to exercise reasonable care to protect your information and restrict the use of your information to the purposes for which it was provided. We also may share your personally identifiable information with third-party vendors and web developers who assist us in performing internal functions necessary to operate our business, including development and maintenance of the Website. We require our third-party vendors to keep such information confidential and to only use the information as necessary and for the purpose it was provided.
Storage And Security.
We have implemented technical, administrative and physical security measures in an effort to safeguard the privacy of your information from unauthorized access or improper use. From time to time, we will review our security procedures in order to consider appropriate new technology and methods to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available. However, you acknowledge and agree that despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and your information may still be accessed and used by others without authorization in the event of a security breach.
Updating Your Information And Opt-Out Choices.
BUILD does not take affirmative steps to confirm the accuracy of the information provided by registered accounts. At any time, you may request that your account be removed from our database by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, which we will endeavor to do reasonably promptly to the extent that the retention of any of your account information is not required for us to comply with applicable law.
You acknowledge that, when you request to delete your account for the Website, your information may be permanently expunged from our primary production servers such that further access to your account may not be possible. We may also disconnect any connection we had established to your account information and delete all account credentials. However, portions of your information may remain on our production servers indefinitely. Your information also may remain on backup servers or media. We also reserve the right to use any deidentified, aggregated or anonymous data derived from your personally identifiable information.
We may communicate with you through the Registration Information on file or other information that you provide to us. You also may unsubscribe from receiving marketing emails from BUILD by clicking on the unsubscribe links in those emails. If BUILD receives an opt-out or unsubscribe request from you, following a reasonable amount of time to process your request, BUILD thereafter will not contact you directly with any information relating to the class of communications for which you've opted-out or unsubscribed, unless you later change your preferences.
In the event that BUILD is consolidated or merged with a third party entity, or undergoes a change of control, corporate combination or similar transaction, we reserve the right to transfer or assign all of the information we have collected from you via our Website (including via any survey in which you have participated) in connection with such transaction. In the event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, we may not be able to control how your information is treated, transferred or used.
