Rebuild Southern California ("Rebuild SoCal") operates rebuildsocal.org and may operate other websites. It is Rebuild SoCal's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Rebuild SoCal collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Rebuild SoCal's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Rebuild SoCal's visitors use its website. From time to time, Rebuild SoCal may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Rebuild SoCal also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on rebuildsocal.org blogs/sites. Rebuild SoCal only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to Rebuild SoCal's websites choose to interact with Rebuild SoCal in ways that require Rebuild SoCal to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Rebuild SoCal gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at rebuildsocal.org to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Rebuild SoCal are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Rebuild SoCal collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Rebuild SoCal. Rebuild SoCal does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Rebuild SoCal may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Rebuild SoCal may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Rebuild SoCal does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Rebuild SoCal discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Rebuild SoCal's behalf or to provide services available at Rebuild SoCal's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Rebuild SoCal's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Rebuild SoCal will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Rebuild SoCal discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Rebuild SoCal believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Rebuild SoCal, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Rebuild SoCal website and have supplied your email address, Rebuild SoCal may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Rebuild SoCal and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Rebuild SoCal takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Rebuild SoCal, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Rebuild SoCal goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Rebuild SoCal may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
