1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
We may use your information, including your Personal Information, for the following purposes:
We only collect the minimum amount of Personal Information about you that we consider necessary for achieving the aforementioned purposes.If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other Users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the Site, we may collect such information into a file specific to you.
In general, Riverdale will gather some technical information automatically. This information includes your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet, like your Internet service provider (“ISP”), your company or your university), browser type, referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our Site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. Riverdale gathers this information using third-party services such as Google Analytics and Hubspot for the purpose of monitoring website performance and determining customer service and Site needs. Please visit the privacy policies of these third parties to learn about their privacy practices and your opt-out choices. For more information on Google’s privacy practices please visit www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.
NON-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION: Certain information that does not identify you (“Non-Identifying Information”) would only be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other Non-Identifying Information (for example, your country and gender). We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other Users of the Sites to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Sites, and to analyze and understand how the Sites are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance to deliver a product or service to you according to your preferences or restrictions, or to send you User surveys or requests for feedback. We may collect any Personal Information you provide through such surveys or calls for feedback.
SOCIAL MEDIA INFORMATION
Where you have interacted with Riverdale sites, content or even employees, through channels such as social media channels we may collect this information using our automated marketing tool, Hubspot. This means that where you have provided certain information (such as email address) to us before and/or have opted in to receiving communications from Riverdale, we may use your interactions with us on social media, combined with information we already have about you to establish your preferences and provide more targeted content. Hubspot may retain details of your publicly available social media handle such as your @address. Please see our Riverdale Newsletters and Communications with You section for further detail around Hubspot and our marketing practices.
Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. If you choose to disable cookies, it may limit your use of certain features or functions on our Sites or services. If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by any website, including these Sites, you should do this through each individual browser setting and on each device you use to access the Internet. You can allow cookies from specific websites by making them “trusted websites” in your Internet browser. For more information on how to do this, and how to change your browser settings, you may visit: www.allaboutcookies.org.
LOG DATA: When you visit the Sites, whether through an account or as a non-registered User browsing, we automatically track certain information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Sites. We use this information to do internal research on our User’s demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand and protect you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from, which URL you go to next, access times and dates, your computer browser information, your IP address, and other statistics (“Log Data”). We use Log Data to monitor and analyze the use of the services on the Sites and for the Sites’ technical administration, to increase our Sites’ functionality and User-friendliness, and to better tailor the Sites to our Users’ needs. For example, some of the information is collected so that when you visit the Sites again, we will recognize you and provide you with information appropriate to your interests. We also use the information to verify that the visitors to our Sites met the criteria to process their requests.
DO-NOT-TRACK: Currently, our systems do not recognize browser “do-not-track” requests. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies); you also may opt-out of Internet-based advertising by following the instructions above in this Cookies section.
REGARDING CHILDREN AND MINORS: We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from Users under the age of 13 (“Child” or “Children”). If Riverdale learns that a Child’s Personal Information has been collected, we will delete the account. If parents or guardians believe that we have unintentionally collected their Child’s Personal Information, they should contact us to request the deletion of the information at one of the below emails.For the Purpose Project: firstname.lastname@example.org
2. DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
LEGAL REQUESTS: Riverdale cooperates with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third-parties to enforce laws and intellectual property rights. Therefore, in response to a verified request by law enforcement, an applicable regulator, or other government officials relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity, we can disclose your name, city, state, and email address. Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy, we will not otherwise disclose your Personal Information to law enforcement or other government officials without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss; report suspected illegal activity; or in response to a regulator’s request for information regarding compliance with applicable law.
3. STORAGE AND TRANSFER OF YOUR INFORMATION
Your information is stored on the servers of our service providers. Please note that information we collect from you may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which we or our service providers maintain facilities. We or our service providers may transfer information that we collect about you, including Personal Information across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. We encourage you to review terms of service agreements and privacy policies before providing information to them.
4. SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
We use reasonable physical, procedural, technical and administrative security measures to protect your Personal Information against loss or theft as well as unauthorized access and disclosure to protect your privacy. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

For challenges on OpenRiverdale, the specific topic of the challenge may lead to users choosing to enter more sensitive information into these blank text fields but Riverdale does not require any users to provide such information.
We may provide certain user information to law enforcement or school officials if we are required to under law or to prevent harm to users or others.
Riverdale may also draw inferences based on personal information above which it may use to understand the usage of our services to improve and maintain those services. We may provide those inferences to third parties in an anonymous and aggregate form to improve and maintain our services, and to market or advertise our services.
