We may provide links to our service providers to allow you to do so. If you create such a third-party account, that provider’s terms of use and privacy policy would govern any information you share with it. The information published, posted or transmitted to third party websites (“User Contributions”) are published, posted and transmitted to others at your own risk. Please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of other users of the Site with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions.

We may also use your Personal Information to send you material about products, services, and activities that we or our affiliates think may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive one or more types of communications from us, please contact us directly at info@scenariosusa.com to discontinue receiving such communications or request that your account be deleted.

Third-Party Information

The Site has features that allow you to “share” or send communications related to the Site to third-parties, such as your friends and family. For these features to operate, the Site will collect contact information from you about those third-party recipients (“Third-Party Information”). We will not use this Third-Party Information for any purpose other than to send the communications you have initiated. We may keep a record of the Third-Party Information for a period of time in case we decide we need to resolve problems related to the communications. If the third-party recipient wishes to have information about him or her deleted from our records, the recipient should contact us at info@scenariosusa.com.

Other Information

Google Analytics may track and record certain anonymous information about Site users (“Other Information”) including Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, computer platform, the time and date of visits, Internet connection speed, the length of visit, the referring site that sent you to our Site, web pages viewed, actions taken during the visit to the Site, and the time spent on a particular page. Scenarios may use aggregate Other Information to analyze website traffic patterns, average session length of a visit, the number of visitors to certain areas of our Site, and other trends to help us understand how visitors use the Site and which pages are most popular, and to improve the Site’s navigation and infrastructure. We do not use this Other Information to identify or track specific users, but we reserve the right to do so for safety or security reasons, for purposes of investigating a violation of the Terms of Use or applicable law, or for other purposes we determine in good faith are appropriate.

Sharing of Your Information

We use third-party service providers (“Service Providers”) to provide certain services, including hosting, email listserv maintenance, website operation and maintenance, payment and donation processing, and to fulfill your requests. Your Personal Information, Third-Party Information, and Other Information may be shared with these Service Providers for the purpose of providing these services.
We also reserve the right to disclose and use Personal Information, Third-Party Information, and Other Information in special circumstances, including: to comply with law, legal process, law enforcement or other compulsory disclosure; to protect the property, rights and safety of any one; to detect or prevent potential or actual fraudulent or unlawful activity; in connection with a sale, assignment or other transfer of some or all of our assets (including our Site) or a change in control of Scenarios; to enforce this Statement or the Terms of Use; to respond to your comments or questions; or for other reasons that we determine in good faith are reasonably necessary, appropriate, or required by law.

Other Sites

For your convenience, the Site may contain links to websites owned or controlled by third parties. Those websites may collect data, send their own cookies to visitors or solicit your information. Those websites’ privacy practices may differ from ours, and we assume no responsibility for, nor guarantee the security of, any Personal Information provided to or collected by third party websites. We encourage you to read the privacy statement of any website you choose to visit.

Children Under Age 13

We do not knowingly collect any information from children under age 13 through the Site. If you are a parent or guardian and you believe your child under age 13 may have provided his or her personal information to us through the Site, please notify us at info@scenariosusa.org.

Enforcement

If we become aware that the security of the Site has been or may be compromised or any nonpublic user information has been or may be disclosed to unrelated third parties as a result of external activity or otherwise not in accordance with this Statement, we will take measures that we deem appropriate (which may include undertaking an internal investigation, notifying the user, and notifying and cooperating with law enforcement authorities).

Security

Protecting the security of your information is very important to us. When you transmit sensitive Personal Information from your computer to our servers, your Personal Information is protected by both a “firewall” (a combination of computer hardware and software that helps keep unauthorized visitors from accessing information within our computer network) and industry standard SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. Nevertheless, no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and third parties may intercept information without authorization. We make no representation or warranty that the Site is protected from viruses, security threats or other vulnerabilities or that your Personal Information or Other Information is always secure. Accordingly, you provide us with your Personal Information and Other Information at your sole risk.

Location of Servers and Transfer of Information

Our servers are located in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States and may not be subject to the same restrictions applicable in your country of residence. By using our Site or providing your Personal Information to us, you consent to this transfer and to the collection, storage, processing, and use of your Personal Information in the United States. In addition, if you are located in the United States, our service providers may not be located in your geographic area in the United States. By providing your Personal Information on the Site, you also consent to the transfer of your data to these service providers.
