1. Who can use the toolkit
You may use the Toolkit only if you can legally form a binding contract with Better Utah Institute, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable laws. When you create your Toolkit account, you must provide us with accurate and complete information. Any use or access by anyone under the age of 13 is not allowed.
We wrote this policy to help you understand what information we collect and how we use it.
a. Information we collect
When you sign up for or use the Toolkit, you voluntarily share certain information including your name, email address, demographic information, and any other information you give us.
When you use a website, application, or other internet service, certain internet and electronic network activity information gets created and logged automatically. This is also true when you use this Toolkit. We use “cookies” or similar technologies to gather information (“log data”), including information that your browser automatically sends whenever you visit a website. This log data includes your Internet Protocol address (which we use to infer your approximate location), browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used the Toolkit, and device data.
b. What we do with the info we collect
We use your information to provide and improve your experience on the Toolkit, including identifying you when you use the Toolkit, personalizing different features of the Toolkit, and responding to your questions and feedback.
We also have a legitimate interest in improving the Toolkit and may additionally use your information to conduct analytics and research on who is using the Toolkit and what they are doing.
c. How and when we share information
Under the terms of grant agreements that made this Toolkit possible, we will share certain demographic information with government agencies or other organizations, without your personal identifying information.
We will share your information with other services, at your discretion, when you publish your information to them. For example, if you choose to publish the results of any quizzes or surveys to Facebook or Twitter, then information about that content will be shared with Facebook or Twitter.
We will share your information with third-party companies that we or they use to audit or improve the delivery and performance of ads or content on this Toolkit (for example, through Google Analytics).
We may share your information with our affiliates, including Alliance for a Better Utah.
We may change this policy from time to time and if we do, we’ll post any changes here. If you continue to use the Toolkit after those changes are in effect, you agree to the new policy.
We care about the security of our users. While we work to protect the security of your account and personal information, Better Utah Institute can’t guarantee that unauthorized third parties won’t be able to defeat our security measures. We ask that you keep your password secure. Please notify us immediately of any compromise or unauthorized use of your account.
