This Land Rising (“we,” “us,” “our”) is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to the www.thislandrising.com website (the “Site”) and users of the services available through the Site (collectively, the Site and the services available through the Site are referred to herein as the “Services,” and each as a “Service”). When you access, browse, or use the Services, information will be collected, transferred, processed, stored, and disclosed in accordance with this privacy policy (“Policy”).  This Policy governs the information collection, use, and disclosure practices for the Services. By accessing, browsing, or using the Services, you agree to the collection, transfer, use, processing, and storage of information (including your personal information) as described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this Policy or the information collection, use, and disclosure practices described in this Policy, do not use the Services.

 

1. Information Collection Practices

 

1.1 Information that You Provide. We may collect and store any and all information that you enter through the Services or give to us in any other way. This section of the Policy, Information that You Provide, provides examples of the information that you provide to us. You may visit and browse the Site without submitting personal information about yourself, and you can choose not to provide certain information to us, but then you might not be able to access or use all of the Services.

 

1.1.1 Rising Team Sign-up. If you use the Services to sign up for or establish a “Rising Team,” we may collect and store information, including personally identifiable information, that you provide when signing up, such as your preferred engagement level, name, ZIP code, phone number, email address, and any comments or questions that you submit to us and, if you indicate you are interested in establishing a Rising Team, your proposed team name and location.   We may use a third-party service provider (such as Google) to collect this information, and if we do, we do not control the information collected by that third-party service provider and are not responsible for their use of that information. Please see Section 4 (Third-Party Providers) for more information about third-party service providers.

1.1.2 Newsletter Registration. If you register for our newsletter, we may collect and store personally identifiable information that you provide when registering for our newsletter, such as your email address. We may use a third-party service provider (such as Tinyletter or Mailchimp) to collect this information, and if we do, we do not control the information collected by that third-party service provider and are not responsible for their use of that information. Please see Section 4 (Third-Party Providers) for more information about third-party service providers.

1.1.3 Donation Processing. If you make donations to us, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you on our payment forms, such as name, email address, billing address and, where applicable, financial information such as your credit card number, expiration data, and validation code. We may use a third-party service provider (such as ActBlue) to collect this information, and if we do, we do not control the information collected by that third-party service provider and are not responsible for their use of that information. Please see Section 4 (Third-Party Providers) for more information about third-party service providers. We may use this information for billing purposes and to process your donation. If we have trouble processing a donation, we or our third-party payment processor may use this information to contact you.

 

1.1.4 Rising Team Search Feature. The Services may include features that enable you to search for your nearest Rising Team. If you use these Services, we may collect and store personally identifiable information that you provide when using the search functionality, such as the address or other location information that you provide when conducting a search. We may use a third-party service provider (such as Google Maps) to facilitate the search functionality, and if we do, we do not control the information collected by that third-party service provider and are not responsible for their use of that information. Please see Section 4 (Third-Party Providers) for more information about third-party service providers.

 

1.1.5 Communications with Us. If you send us correspondence, such as emails or letters, we may save that information in a profile specific to you. Additionally, we collect and store any personal information you provide when you use the “Contact Us” feature within the Services, such as your name, email address, the reason for your inquiry, and your comments.

 

1.2 Information that is Automatically Collected. We may collect and store information about you and the computer or other device that you use to access or use the Services, automatically, using a variety of technologies. This section, Information that is Automatically Collected, provides examples of information that we collect about you automatically.

 

1.2.1 Cookies A “cookie” is a small text file that is stored on a computer for record-keeping purposes. We and our third-party service providers may use cookies to record information about your activities on the Site and to “remember” you when you return to the Site. Some cookies remain on your computer until you delete them. Others, like session ID cookies, expire when you close your browser. You may set your device settings to attempt to reject cookies, but doing so may affect the functionality of the Services. See Section 4 (Online Tracking and Your Choices) for more information on how the Site may respond to your device settings.

1.2.2 Pixels (a/k/a web beacons, web bugs, scripts). “Pixels” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track the online movements of web users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a computer’s hard drive, pixels are small graphics that are about the size of a period that are embedded invisibly on web pages or in HTML-based emails. We and our third-party service providers may place pixels on the Site that track what other websites you visit (both before and after vising the Site). Our third-party service providers use information obtained from pixels to help us improve our business and the Site.

1.2.3 Third Party Use of Tracking Technologies. We do not control the use of cookies, pixels, or other tracking technologies (collectively, “Tracking Technologies”) by third parties. See Section 4 (Third-Party Providers) for more information and review the privacy policies of all third-party providers for information about use of Tracking Technologies by third parties.

 

2. How We Use Your Information

 

2.1 Generally. We may use your personal information (including tracking information) to operate, maintain, and improve the Services (including to provide you with a more personalized experience); communicate with you; provide you information about services (including services of third parties); conduct research; resolve disputes; detect and protect against errors, fraud, and criminal activity; assist law enforcement; enforce this Policy and any terms related to our Services; and any other purpose described in this Policy or that we describe to you at the time of collection.

 

2.2 Email Communications. We may use your personally identifiable information to send you emails or other communications related to the Services, or in response to your inquiries or requests. You may not opt-out of receiving service-related messages that are not promotional in nature. We may also send you marketing emails, surveys, or newsletters to notify you about products, events, or services that may be of interest to you. If you would like to stop receiving marketing emails from us, please click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any marketing email you receive. We will make commercially reasonable efforts to implement your opt-out requests promptly, but you may still receive communications from us as we process your request. If you opt out, you will continue to receive service-related emails.

 

2.3 Non-Identifying Information. We may use non-identifying information for any lawful purpose, including analyzing trends, research, Services administration, tracking users’ movements around the Services, and to improve our business and the Services.

 

2.4 Retaining Your Information. In general, we will retain your information indefinitely, or as long as legally required or allowed. We may dispose of any information in our discretion without notice, subject to applicable law. We do not undertake any retention obligations through this statement.

 

3. How we Share Information

 

3.1 Generally. We will not sell or rent any of your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes. However, we may disclose your personal information to any affiliated entity or organization and to agents and service providers.   Additionally, we may disclose your personal information to “Rising Team” members and leaders, and we do not control their use of any information that we provide to them. We may also share non-identifying information with third parties for any lawful purpose, including analyzing trends, research, Services administration, tracking users’ movements around the Services, and to improve our services. Use of information by affiliated entities will be subject to this Policy or an agreement that is at least as restrictive as this Policy. For information on use of information by agents and service providers, see Section 3.4 (Third-Party Providers).

 

3.2 Legal Requirements. In some cases, we may disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law; if we believe that disclosure is needed to protect our rights; to government regulators; to law enforcement authorities; in connection with any judicial proceeding, court order, subpoena, or legal process served on us or the Services; and to respond to a physical threat to you or another person.

 

3.3 Insolvency and Business Transitions. If we ever file bankruptcy or engage in a business transition such as a merger with another company or if we purchase, sell, or reorganize all or part of the Services or our business or assets, we may disclose your personal information, including to prospective or actual purchasers in connection with one of these transitions.

 

3.4 Third-Party Providers.

3.4.1 Generally. We may use third parties (e.g., website hosting providers, analytics service providers, payment processors, email automation service providers, etc.) to help us operate and improve the Services. We may provide these third parties with information we collect and they may collect information from you and about your use of the Services (including as described in this “Third-Party Providers” section). We do not control information collected by third parties and are not responsible for their use of that information, which is governed by the applicable third-party provider privacy policy. Please review those privacy policies for more information on information, collection, use, and sharing practices of those third-party providers. To the extent information collected by third-party providers is shared with us, this privacy policy will govern our use of that information.

 

3.4.2 Google Analytics. We use Google Analytics, a third-party analytics provider, to collect information about Services usage and the users of the Services, including demographic and interest-level information. Google Analytics uses Tracking Technologies to collect usage information from users that visit the Site. Tracking Technologies allow Google to recognize a user when a user visits the Site and when the user visits other websites. Google uses the information it collects from the Services and other websites to share with us and other website operators information about users. For more information regarding Google’s use of Tracking Technologies and collection and use of information, see the Google Privacy Policy. You may be able to opt out of Google Analytics tracking by visiting the following link: Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on .

 

3.4.3 Inspectlet We use Inspectlet to analyze the activities of visitors to the Site, and Inspectlet’s authorized use of Tracking Technologies enables Inspectlet to have access to personal information of visitors to the Site. For more information regarding Inspectlet’s use of Tracking Technologies and collection and use of information, see the Inspectlet Privacy Policy.   You may be able to opt out of Inspectlet tracking by visiting the following link: Opt-out of Inspectlet.

 

3.5 Disclaimer We cannot ensure that all of your personal information will never be disclosed in ways not described in this Policy. For example, we may be required to disclose personal information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances; third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications; or users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the Services. No transmission of data over the internet can be 100% secure.

 

4. Online Tracking and Your Choices

 

As discussed above, because we and our third-party service providers automatically collect Services usage information through the use of Tracking Technologies (including as described in the “Information that is Automatically Collected” section above, and otherwise in this Policy), your selection of the “Do Not Track” option provided by your browser may not have any effect on our collection of automatically collected information. One way to attempt to “opt out” of the collection of any information through cookies and some (but not all) other Tracking Technologies is to actively manage the settings on your browser to delete and disable cookies and other tracking/recording tools. However, getting a “Do Not Track” signal to work as you might want is difficult and may not be possible. Using browsers as an example, not all tracking technologies can be controlled by browsers; unique aspects of your browser might be recognizable even if you disable a tracking technology; not all settings will necessarily last or be effective; even if a setting is effective for one purpose data still may be collected for another; and even if one website observes a “Do Not Track” signal, that website usually will not be able to control other websites.

 

5. Information Security Measures

 

Keeping secure personal information that we collect is of great concern to us. While we have mechanisms in place to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. When you provide information to the Services, you do so at your own risk.

 

6. Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information

 

If would like to update or correct any personally identifiable information that you have provided to us, you may make such changes by contacting us via email at the email address set forth in Section 9 (Contact Information).

 

7. Children

 

The Services are intended for general audiences and are not directed to children under 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you become aware that a child has provided us with personal information without parental consent, please contact us by using the contact information in the Contact Information section at the bottom of this Policy, and we will take steps to remove the information and terminate the child’s Account.

 

Any individual under the age of 18 may request that his or her information, including content posted to the Services by that individual, be removed from the Services by contacting us by using the contact information in the Contact Information section at the bottom of this Policy, and we will take steps to remove the information. It is important to note that removal of content does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information posted through the Services.

 

8. Notification of Changes

 

We reserve the right to change this Policy from time to time at our sole discretion. When we post changes to this Policy, we will revise the “Effective Date” at the top of this Policy. We recommend that you check the Services from time to time to inform yourself of any changes in this Policy or any of our other policies.
