Will RaiseMe Share Any of the Personal Information it Receives?
No. We do not disclose your Personal Information, combined Personal and demographic information, or information about your use of RaiseMe to third parties, except as set forth below.
Information that's been de-identified. We may de-identify your Personal Information so that you are not identified as an individual and provide that information to our partners. We may also provide aggregate usage information to our partners (or allow partners to collect that information from you), who may use such information to understand how often and in what ways people use our Services so that they, too, can provide you with an optimal online experience.
Colleges: If you are a Student, you may share your Personal Information with a College by taking certain actions on the RaiseMe site, including, but not limited to, submitting your Micro-Scholarships for redemption, applying to specific programs and scholarships, or adding a College to your list of followed Colleges. If you provide your email address or mobile phone number and are following a college, you have indicated interest in the college through RaiseMe, and it is possible that the college may contact you directly via email or SMS (outside of the RaiseMe platform). You can always request directly to the college to opt out of any direct communication from them. Colleges are responsible for managing their messaging outside of RaiseMe through email and/or SMS, as well as the opt-in or opt-out process for students to receive those messages.
Non-Profit & Corporate Scholarship Administrators: If you apply for a Micro-Scholarship sponsored by a non-College third party, such as a non-profit or corporation, your profile information may be shared with a third-party scholarship administrator to select scholarship recipients. The third-party scholarship administrator may contact you directly to verify your profile information, including, but not necessarily limited to, obtaining copies of academic transcripts, proof of financial need if required, or any other documentation RaiseMe or the scholarship administrator requires to award the scholarship and disburse funds to you or your College.
Sponsors: If you follow a Sponsor, that Sponsor will receive access to your individual profile.
User Profiles and Submissions: Certain profile information, including your name, location, and any video or image content that you have uploaded to the Services, may be displayed to other Users. Please remember that any content you upload to your public user profile, along with any Personal Information or content that you voluntarily disclose online in a manner other Users can view (on discussion boards, in messages and chat areas, etc.), becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by anyone.
Business Transfers: We may choose to buy or sell assets, and may share and/or transfer customer information in connection with the evaluation of and entry into such transactions. Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, Personal Information could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
