Please read this Policy carefully to fully understand how we collect, use, share, and protect your Personal Information. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use our Services.

This Privacy Policy explains:

  • Our use of cookies and other technology on our web-based Platforms;

  • How we may use and share information we collect about you; and

  • The choices we offer, including how to access and update information and make related requests.


Information We Collect and Use

For purposes of this Policy, “Personal Information” is any information that identifies, related to, or describes, directly or indirectly, an individual or household. In the course of operating our Platforms and delivering our products and services, we collect, and process categories of Personal Information described below. We use this information for typical business and commercial purposes (including compliance with legal obligations and use for auditing, security, and anti-fraud purposes) and as described more specifically below.

Sensitive Data and Automated Decision-Making: At this time, RL3 Foundation does not knowingly try to gather sensitive categories of data about individual users or engage in profiling in furtherance of decisions that produce legal or similarly significant effects concerning individual users.

Information You Give Us. When you interact with us in person (including at live events) or use the RL3 Foundation Platforms, we may collect and store Personal Information you provide, including:

  • Personal Identifiers. We receive personal identifiers (such as your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, social media identifiers, user account details, and similar identifiers) and use them to respond to and complete your requests, fulfill your orders for products and services (e.g., signing you up for email lists), and to communicate with you for informational purposes (including sending you order confirmations, notices, updates, invoices, and security alerts) and marketing purposes (including sending you news, promotions, event reminders, or information about the newsletter you enrolled in). We may also create internal identification and reference codes to identify you in our electronic systems. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or update your preferences (see “Your Rights and Opt-Out Choices,” below).

  • Communications and Submissions You Send Us. We collect the information and content you submit through contact, sign-up, surveys, and purchase forms, through your posts and interactions on social media platforms, and through email and telephone communications and other submissions to us through our Services (including social media interactions, enrollment in the newsletter, and responses to RL3 Foundation communications). We use this information to respond to and fulfill your requests, establish and manage our client relations and customer service, and to provide and improve our websites, products, and services.

  • Financial Information as Needed for Purchase. If you purchase goods or services from us, we will receive financial information such as payment card information and possibly bank account information and ACH account information as well as other billing information as needed to process payments for products and services you purchase. This is separate from our privacy policy and relates specifically to the privacy policy of the merchant used to process the payment (e.g., PayPal, Stripe, Square, etc.).

  • Commercial Information. We collect and generate commercial information and transaction information (such as records of products and services purchased on our websites, services you have enrolled in, and purchases made using a third-party merchant). We use this information to respond to and fulfill orders, improve our product and service offerings, communicate with you and with service providers, tailor our marketing efforts, and for internal reporting purposes.

  • Audio and Visual Information. If you choose to share audiovisual content like photos, videos, and music demos with us through our Services, we may collect that content, and my use it on RL3 Foundation platforms such as website, social media, or printed material for foundation promotional purposes only.

  • Privacy Choices. We receive and retain any opt-outs or other choices related to how we collect, use, and disclose Personal Information.

If you log on to the RL3 Foundation website or social media platforms using a third party social media account (e.g., Facebook or Google), or if you interact with us through a social media function such as a plug-in (e.g., a Facebook “like” button) then you may be permitting us to have ongoing access to some information from your social network profile (such as your name, email address, your friend list, photo, age, gender, location, birthday, social networking ID, current city, and the people/sites you follow).

Automatic Collection of Information from Cookies and Other Technology. We and our partners use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit the RL3 Foundation Platforms, which we use for the same purposes as Usage Information and to help us understand and improve the usage of our websites and emails. This automatic information collection may include using cookies or similar technologies to identify your browser or device:

  • Cookies. A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the website again, the cookie allows that site to recognize your browser. Cookies may store user preferences and other information.

You may reset your IDFA or Advertising ID in the settings on your mobile device.

  • Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “1×1 GIFs,” “one-pixel GIFs,” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in our web pages and e-mail messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the RL3 Foundation Platforms, to monitor how users navigate the RL3 Foundation Platforms, to make cookies more effective, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.


** Most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, and how to disable existing cookies.


Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit the RL3 Foundation Platforms. Please note, however, that without cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all the RL3 Foundation Platforms and some parts of the RL3 Foundation Platforms may not function properly.

Note Regarding Retention of Personal Information Collected Online. RL3 Foundation uses the following business and legal criteria in determining whether it may reasonably retain Personal Information and related records collected online (e.g., websites and mobile devices, online platforms, and user interactions with our advertisements): (i) applicable laws (including those mandating retention data and records for certain periods of time); (ii) the existence of an applicable legal hold or other substantial need to protect and defend the rights of RL3 Foundation, you, or any third party; (iii) our ongoing assessment of the currency of the data, the need to retain it in order to fulfil a contract or other agreement, or to meet our specific business requirements (including maintenance and improvement of any online Services); and (iv) our balancing of reasonable risk considerations related to the ongoing retention and use of specific categories of data.
