EU Personal Data
If you are located in the European Union (“EU”), United Kingdom, Lichtenstein, Norway, or Iceland, you may have additional rights under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) with respect to your Personal Data, as outlined in the EU Privacy Notice below.
Student-based And Other Qualifying Users
A “Qualifying Institution” is a school, college, university, organization, institution, entity, youth group, or youth movement that the Social Impact Initiative has, AT ITS SOLE DISCRETION, agreed to provide access to and/or accounts with the Service.
If you are a student attending a Qualifying Institution or if you are a member of a Qualifying Institution and are accessing the Service through an account provided by the Qualifying Institution (a “Student-based User”), you may only access the Service if you are at least 13 years old.
When you register with us and become a Social Impact Initiative participant, when you choose to teach or attend a class, we will ask you for Personal Data. “Personal Data” refers to information about you that can be used to contact or individually identify you. This includes, but is not limited to, your name, email address, but does not include your credit card number or billing information. To the extent applicable, transactions involving your billing and payment information are processed by PayPal and Stripe and are subject to their privacy policies. We do not store any of the credit card or banking information that you provide to these payment processors.
Any Personal Data or content that you voluntarily disclose in public areas becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by other users for any reason. Your profile pages (“Profile”) and any online classrooms you participate in are typically publicly available. You have the ability to change your account settings to limit access to your profile, and may delete content you post to public classrooms. If you need assistance with controlling your account privacy settings or with deleting content, please contact us at [email protected] Removal of posted content does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information (e.g., some content may be “invisible” to other users but remain on our servers in some form). You should exercise caution before disclosing your Personal Data via these or any other public venues.
For example, if you choose to sign up for a Social Impact Initiative account, you may have a Profile on the Service, containing your full name and some basic information including your location and bio. You may also add additional optional information to your Profile. You may control what type of Profile information is shown to others through your Account Settings. Any information you choose to provide as part of your Profile should reflect how much you want other Social Impact Initiative users to know about you. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and we encourage members to think carefully about what information about themselves they disclose in their profile pages. You can review and revise your profile information at any time.
As noted in our Terms of Service, you must be 13 years of age or older to use the Service. If you are under 16 you may not use the Service without parental consent. We do not knowingly collect or solicit Personal Data from anyone under the age of 16, unless you are a Student-based User. If you are under 16, please do not attempt to register for the Service or send any Personal Data about yourself to us unless you are a Student-based User. If we learn that we have collected Personal Data from a child under age 16 who is not a Student-based User, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 16 may have provided us Personal Data, please contact us at [email protected]
