Personal information does not include information publicly available from government records, or which is not personal, like anonymous, deidentified or aggregated data (even if it originally comes from personal information).

Our Business Purposes for Collecting and Sharing Personal information
This section details the business purposes for which we collect, process, store and/or share your personal information.
Opt-Out of Our Selling or Sharing of Your Personal information for Targeted Advertising
You have the right to opt-out of our sale of your personal information or our sharing of your personal information for cross-contextual behavioral advertising or targeted advertising. For more information, see the section below called, Notice of Your Personal information Rights; Notice of Right to Opt-Out of Sale/Sharing.

We may share your personal information with the categories of parties listed in this section. Depending on laws that may be applicable to you, when we share your personal information with these third parties, it may constitute a sale of your personal information (for example, when we share your personal information in exchange for money or other valuable consideration).
Retention of Personal information
We retain personal information about you for as long as we deem to be necessary or advisable for the purposes described in the above section called, Our Business Purposes for Collecting and Sharing Personal information (such as providing the Services to you). This may include keeping your personal information after you have stopped using our Services; for example, we may retain your personal information to advertise to you (unless you opt-out), comply with legal obligations or resolve disputes or collect fees owed.
Sources of Personal information
We collect personal information about you from the following categories of sources:
Nonprofits and Third-Party Services
Personal Information of Others You Share with Us
You may not disclose the personal information of another individual to us, or make it available on the Services, unless you have the prior written consent of person who is the subject of the information and such person is 18 years of age or older. To the extent that you provide another individual’s personal information to us or use it in the Services, you acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws concerning such personal information, including:
Personal Information of Children
As noted in the User Terms, we do not knowingly collect, process, store or share personal information about children under 18 years of age. If you are a child under the age of 18, please do not attempt to register for or otherwise use the Services or send us any personal information. If we learn we have collected personal information from a child under 18 years of age, we will delete that data as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 18 years of age may have provided personal information to us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To our knowledge, we do not sell or share for cross-contextual behavioral advertising or targeted advertising purposes the personal information of children under the age of 18.
Notice of Your Personal information Rights; Notice of Right to Opt-Out of Sale/Sharing
Subject to exemptions and limitations provided by applicable law, you have the right to:
(1) Request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information (collectively, the following constitute the "right to know"):
(2) Request a copy of the personal information you provided to us in a portable, and, if feasible, readily usable format (the “right to data portability”)
(3) Request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions under applicable privacy law (the "right to delete")
(4) Correct inaccurate or complete incomplete personal information (the “right to correct”)
(5) Direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the "right to opt out of sale")
(6) Direct us to not share your personal information for cross-contextual behavioral advertising or targeted advertising purposes (the “right to opt out of behavioral advertising”)
(7) Direct us to not share your personal information with third parties for third parties’ direct marketing purposes (the “right to opt-out of third-party marketing”)
(8) Direct us not to share your personal information for the purposes of making automated decisions, including profiling, that produce legal or similarly significant effects concerning you (the “right to opt out of profiling with legal effects”)
(9) Limit the use or disclosure of your sensitive personal information to just those actions necessary to perform specific purposes outlined by law (the “right to limit use of sensitive information”)
(10) Be free from unlawful discrimination for exercising your rights under applicable privacy law
How to Exercise Your Personal Information Rights
To exercise the rights described above, you or your Authorized Agent (defined below) must send us a written request (via one of the methods described below) that (1) provides sufficient information to allow us to verify that you are the person about whom we have collected personal information, and (2) describes your request in sufficient detail to allow us to understand, evaluate and respond to it. Each request that meets both of these criteria will be considered a “Valid Request.” We may ask for information to verify your identity, such as name, phone number, email and address. We will only use personal information provided in a Valid Request to verify your identity and complete your request. You do not need an account to submit a Valid Request.
We will work to respond to your Valid Request promptly within the timeframes required by applicable privacy law (usually between 15 to 45 days depending on the type of Valid Request, with the right for us to extend the response time as necessary). We will not charge you a fee for making a Valid Request unless your Valid Request is excessive, repetitive or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that your Valid Request warrants a fee, we will notify you of the fee and explain that decision before completing your request.
You may submit a Valid Request using the following methods:
You may also authorize an agent (an "Authorized Agent") to exercise your rights on your behalf. To do this, you must provide your Authorized Agent with written permission to exercise your rights on your behalf, and we may request a copy of this written permission from your Authorized Agent when they make a request on your behalf.
In some instances, we may not be able to honor your request. For example, we will not honor your request if we cannot verify your identity or if we cannot verify that you have the authority to make a request on behalf of another individual. Additionally, we may not honor your request where not required to do so under applicable privacy laws. For example, we may deny a deletion request if the information is necessary for us to provide the Services to you or comply with our legal obligations and compliance policies. We may deny a right to know request made more than twice in a 12-month period or for information collected and disclosed more than 12 months ago. We will advise you in our response if we are not able to honor your request.
You have the right to appeal our decision to not honor your request or our refusal to take action on a request within a reasonable period of time by contacting us at the email listed above and clearly stating that the purpose of the contact is an “appeal of privacy rights.” Within 60 days of receipt of an appeal, we will inform you in writing of any action taken or not taken in response to the appeal, including a written explanation of the reasons for the decisions.
