Effective April 2010:
The Hinesburg Rides 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 Hinesburg Rides
General. When Hinesburg Rides collects PII from you it is because you are voluntarily submitting Registration PII to us in order to register as a Member of Hinesburg Rides. Hinesburg Rides may also collect PII from you if you choose to participate in Hinesburg Rides Services activities like 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 Hinesburg Rides for review.
In addition, Hinesburg Rides collects other non-PII including IP address, aggregate user data, and browser type. This data is used to manage and improve the Hinesburg Rides Services, track usage, and for security purposes.
Hinesburg Rides 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.
Hinesburg Rides Members can change their Registration PII and Profile Information at any time and can control how Visitors, other Members and Hinesburg Rides communicate with them by controlling their account settings, available within the “Edit Profile” portion of their Hinesburg Rides profile. Link to Privacy Settings.
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 Hinesburg Rides Services.
NOTICE: Hinesburg Rides WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH NOTICE ABOUT ITS PII COLLECTION PRACTICES
Third party applications (such as widgets) created by third party developers may also be available on the Hinesburg Rides 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, Hinesburg Rides 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 Hinesburg Rides. Hinesburg Rides encourages Members not to provide PII to the third party’s application unless the Member knows the party with whom it is interacting.
CHOICE: Hinesburg Rides WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH CHOICES ABOUT THE USE OF YOUR PII
USE: Hinesburg Rides’ USE OF PII
In order to locate other Hinesburg Rides Members that you may already know in the physical world, Hinesburg Rides allows Users to search for Members using Registration PII (i.e., full name or email address). Hinesburg Rides 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). Hinesburg Rides 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 “Edit Profile.” 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 Hinesburg Rides, Hinesburg Rides may periodically use your email address to send you such materials related to the Hinesburg Rides Services, as applicable. If you want to stop receiving such materials from Hinesburg Rides, you can change your profile settings under “Account Settings,” or follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.
Hinesburg Rides employees, agents and contractors must have a business reason to obtain access to your PII. Hinesburg Rides may share your PII with those who help us manage or provide Hinesburg Rides 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.
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. Hinesburg Rides is not responsible under the EU local data protection laws for Member-posted information.
SECURITY: Hinesburg Rides PROTECTS THE SECURITY OF PII
Hinesburg Rides 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, Hinesburg Rides 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 Hinesburg Rides ABOUT PRIVACY CONCERNS
Whenever possible, Hinesburg Rides Members may review the Registration PII we maintain about them in our records. We will take reasonable steps to correct any PII a Member informs us is incorrect. If you are a Member, you can view and change your Registration PII, Member preferences and Profile Information by logging into your account and accessing features such as “Edit Profile” and “Account Settings.”
If you ask Hinesburg Rides to stop using your PII, Hinesburg Rides will honor that request while retaining any record of your PII that is necessary to comply with applicable federal, state or local law.
