3. HOW WE USE AND SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
To Inform the Site Map. We may use Personal Data that we collect from you in order to inform our digital map of all the reported interactions with law enforcement.
To Provide You with Information. We may use your Personal Data (i.e., email address) to provide you with information that you request from us, as well as promotional materials about our Services, as well as new features of the Site. You may opt out of receiving promotional communications from us at any time, as described in Section 4 below. We do not share your Personal Data with unaffiliated third parties for their own marketing uses.
To Provide Information to Our Partners. In certain cases, you may request that we share your Personal Data with certain legal services, policy and advocacy organizations that we have partnerships with if you would like to file a formal complaint or discuss your experience with an attorney. We will not share your Personal Data with any legal services, policy and advocacy organizations unless you request that we share such Personal Data.
To Operate the Site. We may use and share your Personal Data with third party service providers so that we can most effectively operate and manage our Site. These service providers will have access to your Personal Data in order to provide our Services, but when this occurs we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections to limit their use of your Personal Data in helping us provide our Service. Unless we tell you differently, our vendors and service providers do not have any right to use the Personal Data we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
Creating Anonymous Data. We may use your Personal Data to create aggregated user data that does not identify you specifically. We may share this data with our partners, including legal services, policy and advocacy organizations, research partners and institutes, and advocacy groups. In the event that we share aggregated user data, your user-generated police ratings and experiences, as well as any other Personal Data or User Generated Content you provided to Company, will remain anonymous, unless you have previously given us permission to share your Personal Data in an identifiable manner (e.g., you decide to share your story on the Site).
Legal and Protective Purposes. We will share Personal Data with third party companies, organizations or individuals outside of Company if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of Personal Data is reasonably necessary to:
Comply with any applicable law, regulation, subpoena, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
Protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Company, our users, customers or the public as required or permitted by law.
Transfer in the Event of Sale or Change of Control. If the ownership of all or substantially all of our business changes or we otherwise transfer assets relating to our business or the Site to a third party, such as by merger, acquisition, bankruptcy proceeding or otherwise, we may transfer or sell your Personal Data to the new owner.
4. ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION AND CHOICES
If you have questions about Personal Data we have about you or need to update your Personal Data, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can opt-out of receiving marketing and promotional e-mails from the Company by contacting email@example.com, or by using the opt-out or unsubscribe feature contained in the e-mails.
5. SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
We use industry standard physical, technical and administrative security measures and safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of your Personal Data. However, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot guarantee, ensure, or warrant the security of any Personal Data you transmit to us. There is no guarantee that Personal Data may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. Please note that e-mails you send to us are not encrypted, and we strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential information through these means.
6. CONSENT TO PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA IN UNITED STATES
If you reside outside of the United States and submit Personal Data to us through the Site or otherwise access the Services, you should be aware that such Personal Data will be collected and processed in the United States. By using and accessing our Services, users who reside or are located in countries outside of the United States agree and consent to the processing of Personal Data on servers located in the United States, understanding that the protection of such Personal Data may be different in the United States than what is required under the laws of their residence or location.
8. CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
California residents are entitled to ask us for a notice identifying the categories of Personal Data which we share with third parties for marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such third parties. If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please submit a written request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
