WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED?
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including an individual’s first and last name, password, home or other physical address, an email address, phone number or other contact information.
You may provide personal information to Render in connection with joining the Render platforms, access job opportunities and interacting with other users of Render platforms. Depending on how you initiate contact with Render, we may ask you several questions that will help confirm your identification.
Generally, the information you provide when interacting with Render is optional, but some information may be required in order for a particular process, transaction, or other interaction to properly execute. Render may be unable to provide you with certain products or services should you elect not to share information that we require to be collected for a particular purpose. If you have questions about what information we will require to be collected for a particular purpose, please contact us at Privacy@renderatl.com.
Render also automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, information contained in or conveyed by cookies and other similar technology (as described below), and the page you request through automated a metrics platform such as Google Analytics. This information is automatically logged through these services.
Render may also collect certain personal information or other information that you voluntarily disclosed, including without limitation in connection with registering for events or mailing lists, submission of job applications, responses to survey questions, providing comments, suggestions, and other information that you voluntarily submit. If you choose to provide such information, you are giving Render permission to use and store it consistent with this policy. Therefore, please understand that when you sign in with Render, you are not anonymous to us.
HOW IS SUCH INFORMATION USED?
We may use personal information we collect in order to establish and enhance our relationship with you. Render may use personal information to share with you information that we feel may be of interest to you, such as invitations to attend Render events or the events of other carefully chosen organizations, to review and enhance our products and service offerings, to contact you about your interaction with Render, to provide local networking and educational opportunities and to comply with applicable law. This includes but is not limited to newsletters, SMS marketing, and emails. If you engage with Render at one of our off-line activities with this information may be merged in our database with your online personal information. The information Render collects and how the information is used will specifically depend on which of Render’s offerings or services you use. Render will only require you to provide us with information if it is needed for the legitimate interest of providing you with a product or service or the execution of a transaction. Any time you voluntarily submit information in additional to that described above, you are providing the information on a voluntary basis whereby you consent to our use of the information as described at the time requested. You can contact us at any time to adjust your privacy preferences or ask questions about how the information might be used.
Your personal information is only retained by Render for as long as needed to facilitate the product or service, facilitate communication, or otherwise execute the purpose for which the information was obtained in the first place. This means that although much of the information can be deleted automatically (e.g. when you elect to unsubscribe from a newsletter), some will require manual review before doing so (e.g. you have purchased a ticket for an event and we need some way to verify who you are in order to be admitted to the event).
Tasks related to event organization and other functions of Render are performed both by employees, agents and contractors of Render and by volunteers (“Render Volunteers”) who are not employees. By making use of the Site(s), you consent to allow Render employees, agents, contractors, and Render Volunteers to access any personal information you submit to the Site(s) to provide Render with a specific service and not for any other purpose.
Additionally, Render generally uses the information to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features and services found on the Site(s). Under certain circumstances (for example if you win a contest) we may post your personal information on the Site(s). However, we will notify you of this possibility when collecting personal information or we will obtain your consent to post this information. We may share your personal information with certain other websites that we link to (and that you click upon) in order to achieve the purpose of the connection with the Site(s). Render may also use the information that we collect to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our users, to improve the way the Site(s) work and look, and to create new features and functionality. The information may be stored and maintained for as long as reasonably necessary to effectuate the service requested and for a reasonable time thereafter.
WHEN RENDER DISCLOSES INFORMATION
Render discloses information to third parties as follows: (i) to agents, subcontractors and other third parties, including Render volunteers, who are engaged by Render in making the Render products and services available and otherwise assisting Render in its charitable purpose, including fundraising; and (ii) to selected affiliates, marketing partners and other organizations that Render may affiliate with in furtherance of its purpose. In addition, if you register to attend an event or conference sponsored by Render, Render may also disclose a list of attendee contact information to other attendees at such conference or event.
Render may disclose information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (1) comply with state or federal laws (such as U.S. Copyright law), or respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena or warrant, or otherwise comply with legal process served on Render or the Site(s); (2) protect and defend the rights or property of Render or otherwise take precautions against liability; or (3) act in urgent circumstances to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Render and users of Render, its websites or the public; (4) protect Render from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses;(5) investigate and defend ourselves against third party claims or allegations; (6) assist government enforcement agencies; or (7) protect the security or integrity of the Site(s).
NON-IDENTIFIABLE AGGREGATED DATA
Non-identifiable data is information that subsequently is used in aggregate form or in a manner that does not readily identify an individual. We may collect non-identifiable data whether or not you are a registered member of Render. We may use non-identifiable data for purposes of research or analysis. We may conduct research on our customer demographics, internet usage, and interests and behavior based on personal data we gather. Although non-identifiable data may be based in part on personal information, it does not identify you personally.
Render may share this type of non-identifiable data with a variety of third parties, including its affiliates, advertisers and other current and prospective business partners. Render may use non-identifiable data collected for website administration, advertising and promotional purposes, for understanding the usage, viewing, and demographic patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Site(s), and we may share such information with various affiliated and unaffiliated entities for such purposes. We may also enter into agreements with outside companies that possess technology that allows us to customize our advertising and marketing messages. Your non-personally identifiable information and click stream data about your activities may be shared with these companies so this customization can be accomplished. Our agreement with these companies prohibits them from sharing your information with any third party or using it for any other purpose. Non-identifiable click stream and demographic information may also be shared with our advertisers and business partners.
You may, of course, decline to share your personal information with Render, in which case Render will not be able to provide to you some of the features and functionality found on the Site(s). If you would like us to limit communications to you or use or disclosure of your personal information, please make your request by email to Privacy@renderatl.com. We will respond within a reasonable period to notify you either that we will use reasonable efforts to accommodate your request or alternatively, that we are unable to do so and will delete your personal information from our databases. You may request a copy of any information we have about you, update your information, or request any information about to be deleted from our databases at any time by emailing Privacy@renderatl.com.
The accuracy of information provided by you is your responsibility. You agree you will not knowingly provide us inaccurate information. If someone has spoofed your e-mail address or you have another reason you would like to have such information edited or removed, please send an email to Privacy@renderatl.com. with your request. Other personal information may be corrected, amended or deleted by requesting changes by email to Privacy@renderatl.com.
While Render uses certain measures intended to improve security, it is possible that information you provide us could be intercepted or otherwise accessed by unauthorized parties. In addition, any information sent to us by email may not be secure during transit, due to the nature of email. Render does not provide any guarantees that information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If Render learns of a security breach we will immediately notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps and inform you of what we are doing to help remedy the situation.
IN THE EVENT OF MERGER OR SALE
In the event that Render is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.
THIRD-PARTY ADVERTISERS, LINKS TO OTHER SITES
The Site(s) may be linked to internet websites operated by other companies or third-party sponsors. Some of these websites may be co-branded with our name or logo, even though they are not operated or maintained by us. Render may also permit other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within the Site(s). These third-party ad servers or ad networks may use technology to send, directly to your browser, some of the advertisements and links that appear on the Site(s). These advertisers may automatically receive your IP address if this happens.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, the Sites are not intended for or directed to persons under the age of 13 and Render does not knowingly collect or maintain personal information on the Sites from persons under 13 years-of-age. Any person who provides their information to Render through any part of Site(s) represents to Render that they are 13 years of age or older. If Render learns that personal information of persons less than 13 years-of-age has been collected on Render without verifiable parental consent, then Render will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under the age of 13 has provided personal information to Render, then you may alert Render at Privacy@renderatl.com and request that Render delete that child’s personal information from its systems.
