Introduction to the RedRover privacy policy

RedRover is committed to your right to privacy and to keeping your personal information private and secure. This policy sets out how we handle your personal information and it applies to redrover.org, kindnews.org, safeplaceforpets.org, and specific communications sent out by our organization (collectively termed “Sites”).  This policy also states the type of information we may automatically collect from children under the age of 13. This policy also explains the rights that parents have with respect to their children’s personal information. The terms “we,” “us,” “our organization” and “RedRover” refer to United Animal Nations DBA RedRover because we own the Sites. The term “policy” refers to this Privacy Policy.

Who we are

United Animal Nations DBA RedRover is a non-profit organization based in the United States. Our main office is located at 1419 21st Street, Sacramento, CA 95811.

How to contact us

If you would like to contact RedRover about reviewing and/or correcting information we might have collected, or if you have any questions about this privacy policy, please email us at info@redrover.org or write to us at: RedRover, PO Box 188890, Sacramento, CA 95818. Your personal preferences are very important to us. To opt-out of having your name and address sold or traded with a third party to receive similar mailings to your physical address, please send a letter to the address above or email us at info@redrover.org with the subject “Do not Trade” and include your full name and mailing address in the body of your email. 

COLLECTION OF INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN

The privacy of children is important to us. When a child visits kindnews.org or our other Sites, we may collect a limited amount of information automatically. The information we collect includes the type of computer operating system, IP address and/or mobile device identifier, web browser type, content viewed, the frequency with which the child visits a part of the site, information regarding the online or mobile service provider, and cookie ID. We do not collect registration information, such as their name, phone number, address or email address from children. Tracking technologies (pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology, including cookies) are made up of small bits of data that often include a de-identified or anonymous unique identifier. Websites, apps and other services send this data to a child’s browser when he or she first requests a web page and then stores the data on the child’s computer so the website can access the information when the child makes subsequent requests for pages from that service. These technologies may also be used to collect and store information about a child’s usage of a site or application, such as pages visited, content viewed and searches run. We only use these types of information to support the operations of the site and embedded applications. Third parties that support our Sites by maintaining and analyzing the functioning, directing visitors through Google Ad Words, assisting in network communications, hosting, content delivery, and authentication may also use these technologies to collect similar information. Their collection and use of such information is only to support the operation of the Sites.

Use and disclosure.

We use the information we collect for various purposes related to our business including:
  1. To improve children’s experience by delivering content they will find relevant and interesting.
  2. To provide the child and/or parent with customer support and to respond to inquiries.
  3. To allow service providers, such as contractors or agents, to assist us in managing our Sites. These service providers only collect and use information from children for our internal purposes, consistent with this policy.
  4. To protect the rights of United Animal Nations DBA RedRover and others. There may be instances when we may disclose a child’s information, including situations where we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in order to: (i) protect, enforce, or defend the legal rights, privacy, safety, or property of United Animal Nations DBA RedRover or our employees, agents and contractors (including enforcement of our agreements and our terms of use); (ii) protect the safety, privacy, and security of users of the site or members of the public; (iii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; (iv) comply with the law or legal process; or (v) respond to requests from public and government authorities.
 

Parental rights.

In the event we start collecting registration information from children, we will require parental consent, provide parents with the ability to access the information collected from their children, and give parents a way to revoke consent and delete their child’s personal information.

Security

RedRover contracts with industry leading technology companies who provide enterprise level security for our network and cloud software services. RedRover uses SSL encryption on its websites, donation pages, and payment processing. Administrative access to our donor databases is limited to very few RedRover administrators with dual-factor authentication required for every sign-in. RedRover uses commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard information in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. Please be aware that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.

Location of data

Our cloud systems and the data they hold are hosted primarily in the United States with disaster recovery storage located in several strategic data center sites all over the world. All of these cloud systems are only administered by RedRover staff in the United States. Any person or organization who interacts with RedRover in any capacity can expect their information to be securely stored to the highest security standards both in the United States and at these secure disaster recovery sites all over the world which can not be specifically disclosed due to security concerns. United States data protection and other relevant laws may not be the same as those in your jurisdiction. This includes the use of cookies and other tracking technologies as described above.

Data retention

We will retain your information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this policy unless a longer retention period is required or allowed by law. In the event we discover we have collected information from a child in a manner inconsistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act requirements, we will either delete the information or immediately seek the parent’s consent for that collection.

When we need to update this policy

We will need to change this policy from time to time in order to make sure it stays up to date with the latest legal requirements and any changes to our privacy management practices.

When we do change the policy, we’ll make sure to notify you about such changes, where required. A copy of the latest version of this policy will always be available on this page.
