The Reform Fraternity Website is a general audience site and does not knowingly collect PII from children under 13 years of age.
COLLECTION AND SUBMISSION OF PII AND NON-PII ON REFORM FRATERNITY
General. When Reform Fraternity collects PII from you it is because you are voluntarily submitting Registration PII to us in order to register as a Member of Reform Fraternity. Reform Fraternity may also collect PII from you if you choose to participate in Reform Fraternity Services activities like sweepstakes, contests, and surveys, because you want us to furnish you with products, services, newsletters, or information, or in connection with content or suggestions you submit to Reform Fraternity for review.
In addition, Reform Fraternity collects other non-PII including IP address, aggregate user data, and browser type. This data is used to manage and improve the Reform Fraternity Services, track usage, and for security purposes. Reform Fraternity Members may also choose to provide or store non-PII information in their profiles, including but not limited to date of birth, interests, hobbies, lifestyle choices, groups with whom they are affiliated (schools, companies), videos and/or pictures, private messages, bulletins or personal statements (collectively “Profile Information”). The Profile Information in a Member’s profile is provided at his or her sole discretion.
Reform Fraternity Members can change their Registration PII and Profile Information at any time and can control how Visitors, other Members and Reform Fraternity communicate with them by controlling their settings provided on the top of their profile Home after they sign up.
You can program your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent, block third party cookies or block all cookies. However, by blocking all cookies you may not have access to certain features on the Reform Fraternity Services.
NOTICE: REFORM FRATERNITY WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH NOTICE ABOUT ITS PII COLLECTION PRACTICES
At the time you provide your PII, Reform Fraternity will notify you of your options regarding our use of your PII (See “Choice” below). Except as described in this
Some of the advertisements that appear on Reform Fraternity Services may also be delivered to you by third party Internet advertising companies. These companies utilize certain technologies to deliver advertisements and marketing messages and to collect non-PII about your visit to or use of Reform Fraternity Services, including information about the ads they display, via a cookie placed on your computer that reads your IP address. Third party applications (such as widgets) created by third party developers may also be available on the Reform Fraternity Services. Third party applications are small bits of software, often with interactivity, that can be installed into Members’ profiles or shared with other Users. However, Reform Fraternity does not control the third party developers, and cannot dictate their actions. When a Member engages with a third party application, that Member is interacting with the third party developer, not with Reform Fraternity. Reform Fraternity encourages Members not to provide PII to the third party’s application unless the Member knows the party with whom it is interacting.
CHOICE: REFORM FRATERNITY WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH CHOICES ABOUT THE USE OF YOUR PII
USE: REFORM FRATERNITY'S USE OF PII
In order to locate other Reform Fraternity Members that you may already know in the physical world, Reform Fraternity allows Users to search for Members using Registration PII (i.e., full name or email address). Reform Fraternity also allows Users to browse for certain Profile Information in order to help connect with Members (i.e., schools and/or companies where Users may have attended or worked). Reform Fraternity may also enable Members to publicly display some Registration PII as an element of their Profile Information if they choose to do so via a profile setting under “Settings” Search engines may index the portion of a Member’s profile (including the Profile Information it contains) that is publicly displayed.
If you have consented to receive promotional materials (e.g., newsletters) or notifications from Reform Fraternity, Reform Fraternity may periodically use your email address to send you such materials related to the Reform Fraternity Services, as applicable. If you want to stop receiving such materials from Reform Fraternity, you can change your profile settings under “Account Settings,” or follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.
Reform Fraternity employees, agents and contractors must have a business reason to obtain access to your PII. Reform Fraternity may share your PII with those who help us manage or provide Reform Fraternity Services’ information activities (for example, message board administration, order fulfillment, statistical analyses, data processing), or with outside contractors, agents or sponsors who help us with the administration, judging and prize fulfillment aspects of contests, promotions and sweepstakes.
These outside contractors, agents or sponsors may temporarily store some information on their servers, but they may only use your PII to provide Reform Fraternity with a specific service and not for any other purpose. Reform Fraternity may also provide your PII to a third party in those instances where you have chosen to receive certain information and have been notified that the fulfillment of such a request requires the sharing of your PII. Reform Fraternity also may share your PII with Affiliated Companies if it has a business reason to do so.
As described in “Notice” above, Reform Fraternity may customize the advertising and marketing messages you receive on the Reform Fraternity Website, or may work with outside companies to do so. Your non-PII and/or Profile Information may be shared with these companies so this customization can be accomplished. Reform Fraternity prohibits these companies from sharing your non-PII and/or Profile Information with any third party or from using it for any other purpose. Anonymous click stream, number of page views calculated by pixel tags, and aggregated demographic information may also be shared with Reform Fraternity’s advertisers and business partners.
There may be instances when Reform Fraternity may access or disclose PII, Profile Information or non-PII without providing you a choice in order to: (i) protect or defend the legal rights or property of Reform Fraternity, our Affiliated Companies or their employees, agents and contractors (including enforcement of our agreements); (ii) protect the safety and security of Users of the Reform Fraternity Services or members of the public including acting in urgent circumstances; (iii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or (iv) comply with the law or legal process. In addition, if Reform Fraternity sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of all or a material part of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business, Reform Fraternity may transfer your PII to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction.
When a Member who is located in the European Union chooses to post Profile Information that will be publicly disclosed, that Member is responsible for ensuring that such information conforms to all local data protection laws. Reform Fraternity is not responsible under the EU local data protection laws for Member-posted information.
SECURITY: REFORM FRATERNITY PROTECTS THE SECURITY OF PII
Reform Fraternity uses commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard PII and credit card information in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. In addition, Reform Fraternity uses reasonable methods to make sure that PII is accurate, up-to-date and appropriately complete.
ACCESS, REMEDIES AND COMPLIANCE: HOW TO ACCESS, CORRECT OR CHANGE YOUR PREFERENCES REGARDING YOUR PII AND HOW TO CONTACT REFORM FRATERNITY ABOUT PRIVACY CONCERNS
