Cookies and Other Technologies
Like many companies, we place advertisements where we think they will be most relevant to customers. One way we do so is by allowing network advertising companies with whom we work to place their own tools when an individual visits SCORE websites. This enables the network advertising company to recognize individuals who have previously visited SCORE websites and to serve you ads based on your web browsing activity, purchases, interests and/or other information—a practice commonly referred to as interest-based advertising or online behavioral advertising.
These advertising companies may also use these types of technologies to recognize you across the devices you use, such as a mobile phone or a laptop, and serve you ads on websites you visit and applications you use.
Your web browser can be set to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies, reject cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is sent to your browser. If your browser is set to reject cookies, websites that are cookie-enabled will not recognize you when you return to the website, and some website functionality may be lost. The Help section of your browser may tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies. To find out more about cookies, visit www.aboutcookies.org. Also, certain versions of the iOS operating system permit you to “Limit Ad Tracking” in the system settings, and certain versions of the Android operating system allow you to “Opt-out of Interest-Based Ads” in the system settings. Options you select are browser and device specific.
Here are some of the types of information collected when visiting SCORE websites:
- Log data: When you use SCORE websites and applications, our servers automatically record information (“log data”), including information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website or app or your mobile app sends when you are using it. This log data may include your Internet Protocol address, the address of the webpages you visited that had SCORE features, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used websites and cookie data.
- Cookie data: Depending on how you are accessing SCORE’ online services, we may use “cookies” (a small text file sent by your computer each time you visit our sites, unique to your SCORE account or your browser) or similar technologies, to record log data.
- Social media plugins and data. Social media plugins (e.g., the Facebook "Like" button, '"Share to Twitter"' button) to enable you to easily share information with others. The operator of the social plugin can place a cookie on your computer, enabling that operator to recognize individuals who have previously visited our websites. If you are logged into the social media website (e.g., Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) while browsing on our services, the social plugins allow that social media website to receive information that you have visited our websites and applications. The social plugins also allow the social media website to share information about your activities on our websites and applications with other users of their social media website. SCORE does not control any of the content from the social plugins.
- Device information. We may also collect information about the device you are using to access our SCORE services, including what type of device it is, what operating system you are using, device settings, unique device identifiers and crash data. To learn more about what information your device may make available to us, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
Some browsers have Do Not Track (“DNT”) features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform, and some browsers may not be set up to honor such requests. At this time, we do not look for or respond to DNT signals.
SCORE does not knowingly collect or use any information from children under the age of 18 (“Child” or “Children”), nor do we solicit personal information from Children. If you are a Child, please do not send any personal information about yourself to us.
If you are a parent or guardian and become aware that your Child has provided us with information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a Child, we will delete that information as soon as possible.
We take steps to secure our websites and applications; however, the confidentiality of information transmitted over the Internet cannot be guaranteed. We urge you to exercise caution when transmitting personal information over the Internet. SCORE cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not gain access to your information; therefore, when submitting personal information to SCORE, you do so at your own risk.
Third Party Sites
We may provide links to websites and other third-party content that is not owned or operated by SCORE. The websites and third-party content to which we link may have separate privacy notices or policies. SCORE is not responsible for the privacy practices of these websites.
Transfer of Personal Information Between Countries
If you have questions about your personal information, please contact us by calling us at 1-800- 626-7744 or emailing us at email@example.com.
In all communications to SCORE, please include the email address used with your account (if applicable), the website address or the specific SCORE program to which you provided personal information, and a detailed explanation of your request. We will do our best to respond to all reasonable requests in a timely manner.
How Will I Know Whether SCORE Has Updated This Policy?
We are committed to protecting your privacy. Authorized employees within the company on a need to know basis only use any information collected from individual customers. We constantly review our systems and data to ensure the best possible service to our customers. Federal and California State laws have created specific offences for unauthorized actions against computer systems and data. We will investigate any such actions with a view to prosecuting and/or taking civil proceedings to recover damages against those responsible.
