WHY DO WE HAVE THIS POLICY?
WHAT DOES THIS POLICY COVER?
Our Website may collect two types of information about Website users: personally identifiable information (“personal information”) and non-personally identifiable information.
Collection and Use.
We do not require users of our Website to register or provide personal information before entering or browsing our Website. However, if you would like to engage in certain activities on our Website, such as signing up to receive updates and further information regarding the Hackathons and related matters, you will be required to provide certain personal information.
We may use your personal information to inform you of new initiatives or updates concerning the Administrators which may be of interest to you, if you indicate an interest in receiving such information.
Providing Services. We may share personal information with third parties where disclosure is necessary for the Administrators to effectively operate and manage the Hackathons. We may outsource some or all of these tasks and disclose personal information about you to third parties, provided the use and disclosure of your personal information by these third parties is restricted to performance of such tasks.
Internal Analysis and Operations. We may share personal information with third-party vendors and web developers who assist us in performing internal functions necessary to operate our business, including but not limited to development and maintenance of our Website. For example, the Administrators may disclose your personal information to a service provider in connection with the provision of IT or other support services. 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.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
We may collect non-personally identifiable information when you visit our Website, such as the pages accessed, the referring page that linked you to us, and the date and time of visits. The Administrators and/or our authorized third-party service providers may automatically collect this information when you visit our Website through the use of electronic tools like cookies.
We may share non-personally identifiable information with third parties in order to track and analyze Website usage and volume information, administer our Website, and improve its quality. We may also publish this information for promotional purposes.
HOW WE HANDLE “CONTACT US” MESSAGES
Storage and Security
The Administrators use a range of security measures to protect the confidentiality and security of the personal information we collect online. However, no data transmission over the internet is completely secure. While we endeavor to protect such information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any personal information transmitted to us, and individuals do so at their own risk.
The Administrators do not take affirmative steps to confirm the accuracy of the information you provide us. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org should your personal information change so that we can update our records. You may also modify, correct, change or update your personal information or cause your personal information to be removed from our database by request via email to email@example.com.
We do not intend, and this Website is not designed, to collect personal information from children under the age of fourteen (14). If you are under fourteen (14) years old, you should not use our Website or otherwise provide information through our Website.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you:
- Would like to update, access or correct your personal information;
- Would like to have your personal information deleted from our system;
- Believe that we have breached our privacy obligations; or
- Believe that we no longer need to retain your personal information and you do not wish to be contacted by us in the future.
