This Policy applies to all information you upload, post or provide to the Site and all information we collect from you through your use of the Site ("Information"). This Information includes both Information that may be reasonably associated with, linked to you, or used to identify you, allowing you to be personally identified or contacted ("Personal" Information) and Information that may not by itself be reasonably associated with, linked to, or used to you ("Non-Personal" Information).
Although we encourage you to read the entire Policy, the following provides a summary of some of the important aspects of our privacy practices:
By using the Site, you are agreeing to the collection, use, and sharing of your information as described in this Policy. We will not use or share the information we receive, collect, or obtain regarding you other than as stated in this Policy. If you do not consent to the receipt, collection, use, and disclosure of your information as described in this Policy, you are not permitted to use the Site.
We reserve the right to update or modify this Policy, at any time and without prior notice, by posting the revised version of this Policy on the Site. Changes made to this Policy will be effective 30 days following posting for existing users, and immediately for new users. Your use of the Site following the effective date of any change to this Policy constitutes your acceptance of that change.
Unless we seek and receive consent from you, we will use your Information in accordance with the version of this Policy effective when the Information was last collected. You may contact us as described above regarding any change to this Policy, including to prevent your Information from being used pursuant to any change to this Policy.
We may receive, collect, and obtain Personal Information regarding you as described in this Policy. In particular, we may collect Personal Information from you voluntarily through your use of the Site or your interactions with others through the Site. We may also automatically collect Personal Information from you when you use the Site or interact with others through the Site. For example:
We collect Personal Information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser or mobile device. This Information may include, for example, your IP address, the address of the web page you were visiting when you accessed the Site, the name of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, your mobile device identifier, your location, your wireless carrier and mobile phone number, and the date and time of your visit. The Personal Information we receive depends on the settings on your web browser and mobile device. Please consult the documentation for your web browser or mobile device regarding how to adjust the Personal Information you share through your web browser or mobile.
We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don't know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.
We use "cookies," "flash cookies," "Oauth tokens," "web beacons" and similar technologies to collect Information and manage the Site. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk or mobile device by a Web server. Each time you visit the Site, our server will recognize you by "searching" the Information contained in these cookies. This permits us to offer you a personalized experience when you use the Site.
We may use and share the Personal Information we receive, collect, and obtain regarding you as described in this Policy. The Personal Information that we receive, collect, and obtain may be used for a variety of purposes, including by way of example:
YOU SHOULD NOT PROVIDE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION THROUGH THE SITE OR ANY COMMUNICATIONS WITH OTHERS THROUGH THE SITE UNLESS YOU WOULD LIKE THAT INFORMATION TO BE USED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS POLICY.
We may also collect certain Non-Personal Information when you use or interact with the Site. We also receive and obtain Non-Personal Information from third parties. This Non-Personal Information will include, by way of example, performance information and other metrics regarding the use of and access to the Site.
We may also generate Non-Personal Information from the Personal Information we receive, collect, and obtain under this Policy. When we do so, we will take reasonable measures to ensure that the Non-Personal Information is no longer personally identifiable and may not later be reasonably associated with, linked to, or used to identify you. Once we generate any Non-Personal Information from any Personal Information, we will not later attempt to again make that information personally identifiable. However, we may combine and enhance that Non-Personal Information with other Non-Personal Information received or obtained from third parties.
Provided that any Non-Personal Information remains in non-personally identifiable form and may not be reasonably associated with, linked to, or used to identify any individual, we may use or share that Non-Personal Information for any lawful purpose without a further duty or obligation to you. This will include, by way of example, developing product and service offerings based on Non-Personal Information and providing those offerings to you or to other third parties.
We may disclose the Information we collect through the Site when we, in good faith, believe disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law (or a court order or subpoena); to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; or other agreements that govern the use of the Site; to protect the rights (including our intellectual property rights), property or safety of Rich Media Labs, our users or others; or to protect your vital interests.
If we elect, in our reasonable discretion, to transfer ownership or control of the Site to a third party, whether or not in the context of an acquisition, merger, or reorganization, your Information (both Personal and Non-Personal) may be transferred to that third party (either an affiliate or an unrelated third party). If such a transfer occurs, the acquiring company's use of your personal information will still be subject to this Policy and the privacy preferences you have expressed to us.
The Site is not directed at nor targeted to children under the age of 13. We do not use the Site to knowingly solicit Personal Information from or market to children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, do not provide us with any Personal Information. If we learn that someone under 13 has provided Personal Information to one of the Site, we will use reasonable efforts to remove such Information from our databases.
Certain web browsers and other devices you may use to access the Site may permit you to indicate your preference that you do not wish to be "tracked" online. At this time we do not modify your experience on the Site or the Information we collect from you through the Site based on whether such a preference is indicated.
We are committed to protect and secure your Personal Information. We will take all reasonable and appropriate steps to insure the safety and security of your Personal Information. This includes using at least industry standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse, and unintended alteration of the Personal Information under our control. For example, our policy is that only those individuals who need your Personal Information to perform a specific job for us are granted access to that Personal Information. Likewise, all employees and contractors are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment. Although we take these measures to protect your Personal Information, "perfect security" does not exist, and we can not guarantee that your Personal Information will be secure in all situations.
