“Personal Information” is information that, either alone or in combination with other information, identifies you. Examples of Personal Information include, among others, name, email address, phone number, and mailing address. When we combine Personal Information with other information (i.e., information that does not, on its own, identify you), we treat the combined information as Personal Information.
We collect and use Personal Information in various ways depending on the context and the particular Service. For example, on our website, we collect contact information from you if you wish to sign up as a candidate or sponsor or for our newsletter. As another example, if you make a donation to a crowdfunding project powered by our Service, we process the Personal Information you provide to facilitate the donation. In other words, we process Personal Information with your consent; as necessary to provide the Service; or for our, our clients’, or our users’ legitimate interests. For other purposes related to the reasons for which you provide Personal Information.
When you use our Service, our servers automatically record information, including your Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), browser type, referring URLs (e.g., the site you visited before coming to our Service), number of clicks, and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names associated with your internet service provider, pages viewed, and other such information (collectively, “Log File Information”). We use Log File Information collected from our implementation of the Service to further our legitimate interests in securing the Service by identifying potential threats and vulnerabilities, and in analyzing the effectiveness of our Service to improve the Service’s function and content.
To help personalize our Service and to better understand the demographics of users of our Service and sponsors, we may use information derived from your IP address to estimate your location (roughly at the precision of your zip code). If we require access to more precise location data to provide you a certain feature (e.g., to help you identify nearby opportunities), we will only access your device’s location in accordance with the consent that you provide through your browser or device, which you may revoke at any time by following the instructions provided by your browser or device manufacturer.
We use commercially reasonable safeguards to help keep the information collected through the Service secure and take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. Despite these efforts to store Personal Information in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee the security of Personal Information during its transmission or its storage on our systems. Further, while we attempt to ensure the integrity and security of Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third parties such as so-called hackers from illegally obtaining access to Personal Information. We do not represent or warrant that Personal Information about you will be protected against, loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties.
CBC does not knowingly collect or solicit any Personal Information from children. In the event that we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child without parental consent, we will promptly take steps to delete that information.
If you would like to access, amend, erase, export (i.e., data portability), or object to or restrict the processing of, Personal Information about you, you may submit a request using our contact us form on our Site. We will promptly review all such requests in accordance with applicable laws. When we process Personal Information about you on behalf of a client, we must act on our client’s instructions—including with regard to how to respond to your request.
We may send notifications, newsletters, promotions, or other information via email (“Communications”). You may choose to stop receiving Communications by indicating your preference in your account profile or settings. You may also follow the unsubscribe instructions in any email you receive. Please note that certain Service-related Communications are necessary for the proper functioning and use of the Service and you may not have the ability to opt out of those Communications.
We are not responsible for the practices employed by any websites or services linked to or from our Service, including the information or content contained within them. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing your Personal Information to third parties, including social media sites on which you choose to share your CBC content.
