  • Other data collected that could directly or indirectly identify you.

Our Privacy Policy is intended to describe to you how and what data we collect, and how and why we use your personal data. It also describes options we provide for you to access, update or otherwise take control of your personal data that we process.

If at any time you have questions about our practices or any of your rights described below, please email us at privacypolicy@enactus.org.

Collection and use of personal information


We collect information so that we can provide the best possible experience when you become a part of the Enactus network. Much of what you likely consider personal data is collected directly from you when you:

  1. Create an account to join the Enactus network as a student/faculty/alumni/business executive. (ex: contact information, including email address, company/university name, title, address, phone numbers, birthdate, ethnicity);
  2. Register to attend an Enactus event (email, company/university name, title, address, phone numbers as well as citizenship details for International events);
  3. Complete contact forms or request to utilize other services we offer (ex: email, resume upload); or
  4. Participate in surveys or otherwise participate in activities that might require information about you.
  5. This data is used solely by Enactus and is not shared, traded or sold to third parties with these exceptions:

    Enactus may provide information about our event attendees to exhibitors, sponsors and attendees of that event. This data includes: names, titles, and company/university names. Event attendees may choose, at any time, to be removed from these attendee lists by sending an email to privacypolicy@enactus.org.

    Enactus may share data with other companies who process data on behalf of Enactus or provide other services (i.e. email service providers, data collection tools, data processors, learning management systems) as well as services with regards to our website (i.e. payment processors, website hosting companies) to fulfill our mission. Such companies will only receive information necessary to provide the respective services and will be bound by confidentiality agreements limiting the use of such information and contractual obligations requiring those companies to respect your privacy rights and the security of your personal information.

    Our website also collects non-personal data using server-based “session variables,” which we use to ensure important site functionality, including the recognition of logged-in users. Our website also uses a single “cookie” (a small file stored by your browser on your hard drive), to collect non-personal data.

    Our webserver also records IP addresses (the number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet) from all visitors to our site. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site, analyze trends and to track user movement, as well as to gather broad demographic information—for continually improving our website and delivering personalized, custom content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information and their collection is standard procedure in most webserver environments.

    Where you register or login using a third-party single user sign-in we may also recognize you as the same user across any different devices you use and personalize your user experience across other Enactus sites you visit.

    Transfer of personal data abroad

    If you access an Enactus website or web form from a country other than the country where our servers are located (United States), your communications with us may result in transferring your personal data across international borders. Also, when you call us, we may provide you with support from one of our global locations outside your country of origin. In these cases, your personal data is handled according to this Privacy Policy.

    Google Analytics

    Enactus uses Google Analytics. To provide website visitors with more choice on how their data is collected by Google Analytics, Google have developed the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. The add-on communicates with the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js) to indicate that information about the website visit should not be sent to Google Analytics. The Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on does not prevent information from being sent to the website itself or to other web analytics services.

    Location-based tools

    Enactus may collect and use the geographical location of your computer or mobile device. This location data is collected automatically and is used to provide you with information regarding services which we believe may be of interest to you based on your geographic location, and to improve our location-based products and services.

    Social media widgets and applications

    Enactus web sites may include functionality to enable sharing via third party social media applications, such as the Facebook Like button and Twitter widget. These social media applications may collect and use information regarding your use of Enactus web sites. Any personal information that you provide via such social media applications may be collected and used by other members of that social media application and such interactions are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide the application. We do not have control over, or responsibility for, those companies or their use of your information.

    In addition, Enactus web sites may host blogs, forums, crowd-sourcing and other applications or services (collectively “social media features”). The purpose of social media features is to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and content. Any personal information that you provide on any Enactus social media feature may be shared with other users of that social media feature (unless otherwise stated at the point of collection), over whom we may have limited or no control.

    Links to other sites

    Our websites contain links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links you are entering another website, for which Enactus is not responsible.

    Communications

    We may use your personal information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other materials that maybe of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send or by contacting us at privacypolicy@enactus.org.

    Children’s Privacy

    We do not knowingly collect Personally Identifiable Information from children under the age of 16. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Information from a child under age 16 without parental consent, we will take steps to remove that information from our servers.

    Photography and Videography

    While attending an Enactus event you may be filmed, photographed or recorded. We, including our agents, assignees, employees, affiliated organizations, and partners worldwide, may use these films, images, or recordings for marketing purposes.
