PADC PRIVACY POLICY

Effective Date: August 5, 2021

 

The Piedmont Anti-Racism & Diversity Committee (“PADC,” “we,” or “us”) cares about protecting your privacy. In this Privacy Policy (the “Policy”), we explain the data we gather from visitors to our website, how it is used, and who we may share it with.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

The following types of information are collected from Visitors when they use our website:

Voluntarily Disclosed Personal Information. When you visit our website, you will have the opportunity to provide us with some personal information directly. For example, you have the ability to sign up for our email list, to volunteer to work with us, or to submit a message through the contact form.

Automatically Collected Anonymous Information. Whenever you visit our website, we automatically receive and record anonymous information from your browser, which may include your IP address, geolocation data, device identification, the type and configuration of your web browser, or the last page you visited before accessing our website. You may be able to disable our access to some of this information through your browser settings.

Our website also uses “cookies.” “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages on our website are visited. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies.

 

USE OF INFORMATION

We may use the information collected about you in order to operate, develop, research, modify, or improve our work and our website. This may include use such as communicating with you about our work if you have indicated you are interested in this information, or to analyze trends and patterns in the use of our website by visitors.

DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

Some amount of sharing is necessary for PADC to operate our website, and to comply with the law. The following organizations, entities and individuals may  have access to the information described above:

PADC and Its Contractors. Members of the PADC team, and some independent contractors retained to support our work, may have access to visitor information as it is reasonably needed for the operation of our website and or completion of our work.

Third-Party Service Providers. We may employ other companies and individuals to perform tasks on our behalf as part of the operation of our website. We will share your information with them only as is needed for them to provide such assistance. These third parties do not have any right to use the information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

Aggregate Information. PADC may share aggregated, non-personally-identifiable data derived from website visitor information for any operational purpose, including for analyzing usage behavior or to help identify new partners, programs, and opportunities.

Business Transfers. If PADC is acquired or merged by another entity, goes into dissolution, or otherwise transfers ownership or assets, we may transfer user information as part of that transaction.

Legal Compliance. We may share information if we believe, in our sole discretion, that such disclosure is necessary in order to comply with any court order, subpoena, or other legal process, including an order to respond to any government or regulatory request, or if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of PADC members or others.
