Privacy Policy

Last updated: July 5th

The Alliance for the Creative Economy (“ACE”, "us", "we", or "our"), a project of the not-for-profit Saratoga Institute, operates a Registration Site and an online Job Hub (the "Sites"). This privacy policy guides our collection, use, disclosure, and protection of Personal Information we receive from you on the Sites. By using the Sites, you agree to this policy.

Information Collection And Use

To use our Sites, we will ask you for personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) like your name, email address, city of residence, areas of interest, and other information. We use this information to help connect people with work opportunities, services, and each other.

Log Data

“Log Data” is information your browser sends whenever you visit our Sites (like IP Address, browser type and version, time and date of your visit, exceptions, and other information). We may collect and analyze this information to improve the way the Sites operate. We may also use third party services (e.g. Google Analytics) to analyze some data.

Communications

We may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing, or promotional materials to help you make better use of our Sites. If you would rather not receive these communications, you can always unsubscribe from these communications specifically, or delete your account from our system.

Cookies

Cookies are files with a small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer's hard drive.

We use cookies to create coherent experience for you while you move around our Sites. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. If you do refuse cookies, we may not be able to offer you a customized experience based on your preferences. You can also choose the “remember me” option, and the cookie will remain active unless you choose otherwise.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. And while no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we use best practices to keep your data safe. When transmitting and receiving we use TLS encryption. Our servers are run by a third-party service called Heroku, and we rely on their security services to keep your stored data safe.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to makes changes to our Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes we make will be posted on our Sites, be sent to you via email, and/or appear as notices on our Sites. Your continued use of our Sites after we post such changes means that you acknowledge and consent to the changes.

Opt-in rights

In the event that we are sold, acquired, merge with another entity, or in any other way lose sole responsibility for protecting your Personal Information, we pledge to explicitly seek your opt-in approval to share your Personal Information with the new entity. We pledge to make clear in plain language who has access to your Personal Information, why, and for what purposes.

Sales

ACE promises to never sell your data. We may, in the future, sell memberships to our Sites. And we may charge people who want to post certain kinds of content to your newsfeed. But we will never sell mass access to your data for any purpose.
