We, us, our stands for Project 5K, the non-profit youth organization.

Information Logging
Similar to every other website in the world, we collect non-personally-identifying information made available to us by your browser through Google Analytics and CloudFlare. This information is collected to help us better understand how our visitors use our website.

Additionally, we collect personally-identifying information when you sign up for an event through our website or create an account/subscribe to our newsletter. For example, we ask that you provide your name and email address when you create an account on our website or subscribe to our newsletter. This is so we can contact you later on regarding events and activities that you have either joined or may be interested in.

Release of Aggregate Statistics
Project 5K may publish non-personally-identifying aggregate statistics publicly or otherwise. For example, we may publish the number of volunteers who have signed up through our service through our social media channels.

Protection and Release of Personally-Identifying Information
Project 5K takes your personal information seriously. We disclose your personal information on a need-to-know basis to our executive members and event organizers. This is so that we may coordinate your attendance and activates at an event with you and the event organizer. By signing up for an event through our website, you agree that we may release your personal information to the previously listed parties as well as any other parties that may require your information in order for you to attend the event. We will not disclose your personal information to parties who have no relation to your attendance at our events, and we will never sell your information to any party.

The only exception to the aforementioned personal information policy is for legal purposes. If we receive a court order to release your information for any reason to any party, we will have to comply and do so.

Rights and Liabilities

Preface

The world is a dangerous place, and while we love to volunteer as much as you, some ground rules need to be established.

Note: The below terms may be overridden by further terms pertaining to specific events. E.g. Your event might have a more stringent liability waiver that overrides this one.

Definitions

Our rights

  • We reserve the right to cancel or modify your relationship with us at any time should it be appropriate.

  • Unless you explicitly inform us in writing that you will not like your photo taken, we have the right to take photos and videos of you during the event for marketing and analytical purposes.

Your information and rights

  • Any changes in our information about you should be brought to us immediately via our communications email channel. Failure to do so may result in your expulsion from our events should we be unable to accommodate your request in time.

  • You have the right to cancel your attendance to any event we hold, however failure to do so in a timely manner (we must be notified at least 4 days prior to an event) may result in your suspension from future events we hold or help organize. This suspension period is the sole decision of Project 5K

  • We do not disclose personally-identifiable information to any third-parties or partners other than those involved directly with the event.
