Thank you for visiting our Project Here Online Toolkit website and reviewing our Privacy Policy. This policy pertains to Project Here and all Project Here funded websites. Your privacy is important to Project Here. This privacy statement provides information about the personal information that Project Here collects, and the ways in which Project Here uses that personal information.

Personal information collection
Project Here may collect and use the following kinds of personal information:

Non-personally identifiable information
Project Here may use non-personally identifiable information collected from you and other website users to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics. These aggregated statistics would be used to improve the Project Here Online Toolkit website and for product development and marketing purposes generally. Project Here also may provide such aggregated information to funding sources and other third parties for certain purposes, but such statistics contain no personally identifiable information and cannot be used to gather such information.

Personally identifiable information
The personally identifiable information you provide when using the Project Here Online Toolkit website may be used to provide products and services to you, to enhance your experience at the site, and, if applicable, to enhance your experience as a user of Project Here’s products and services. Information about you may also be received by the Project Here Online Toolkit website when you access the site via various social media outlets. Your privacy settings with the social network generally establish the amount and type of data that Project Here may receive from it. You should adjust your privacy settings to your preferences on those social media outlets.

Where Project Here discloses your personal information to its agents or sub-contractors (“Outside Contractors”) for these purposes, the agent or sub-contractor in question will be obligated to use that personal information in accordance with the terms of this privacy statement. Access to your personally identifiable information by these contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary in order for these Outside Contractors to perform their limited function for us. Project Here also requires that these contractors (i) protect the privacy of your personally identifiable information consistent with this Privacy Policy, and (ii) not use or disclose your personally identifiable information for any purpose other than providing Project Here with products or services for which Project Here contracted. In addition to the disclosures reasonably necessary for the purposes identified elsewhere above, Project Here may disclose your personal information to the extent that it is required to do so by law, in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings, and in order to establish, exercise or defend its legal rights.

Cookies and other tracking technology
Project Here, and third parties doing business with the Project Here Online Toolkit Website, including Outside Contractors, may use cookies, web beacons, local shared objects, tags, scripts, stationary and mobile advertising identifiers and like technologies (“Cookies”) in connection with use of this site by you, mobile applications and third party websites. Cookies may have unique identifiers, and be present on your computer or mobile device. They may also be present on the site or in emails that we send to you. Information about you and your use of the site may be transmitted by Cookies including, without limitation, information concerning your type of browser, device identifier, IP address, search preferences, the date and time of your use, your click through activity with respect to advertisements and time, location and length of visit. Cookies may be stored only during an individual session or indefinitely.

Project Here may use Cookie-gathered data in order to: (i) facilitate your use of the site such as remembering information to avoid you having to subsequently re-enter it on your next visit to the site; (ii) customize your experience on the site; (iii) collect aggregate metrics such as aggregate visitors, demographic usage, geographic usage and total traffic to the site; (iv) for quality assurance purposes and to correct malfunctions; and (v) to provide site enhancements and evaluations.

Outside Contractors and other linked sites may use Cookies and collect and use your information derived therefrom differently than Project Here. You must refer to their applicable terms regarding the same. Project Here is not responsible for the use of Cookies or the collection and use of your information for anyone other than Project Here.

Securing your data
Project Here uses commercially reasonable physical, administrative, and technological safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of all information collected and all information shared with Outside Contractors, users and service providers. However, no security system is impenetrable and Project Here cannot guarantee the security of its systems 100%. In the event that any information under Project Here’s control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, Project Here will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised and take other steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.

Updating this statement
Project Here may revise this privacy policy from time to time. The most current version of the privacy policy will govern the collection, use, and disclosure of information about you and will be located on the Project Here Online Toolkit website. By continuing to access the Project Here Online Toolkit website or use any services and products related thereto after those changes become effective, you agree to the revised privacy policy.
