This website is built and maintained by National Youth Leadership Council (“NYLC”), a non-profit corporation, located at 1667 Snelling Ave. North, Saint Paul, MN 55108.

NYLC values your privacy and takes specific steps to protect the users of our websites. This Privacy Policy governs the collection, use, disclosure and protection of the personally identifiable information that you share with us in interactions with our websites. By using this website, you agree to abide by the NYLC.org Usage Agreement, and any other usage agreements or terms of use applied to our specific websites, and accept and acknowledge this Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect

We may collect personally identifiable information from you, such as your name, school or organization affiliation, position, address and/or geographical location, demographic information and email address when you interact with our websites to sign up for e-mail newsletters, create an account on one of our community sites or make purchases.

When you create an account on one of our community websites, such as the Generator School network (“GSN”), we may also display some of your user profile information to other users. For those under 18 years of age, we generally do not knowingly display your zip code, age or demographic information particular to your school or organization.  However, providing that additional profile information helps us to better understand how our websites are being used, so we can make them better. Our websites that require users to create accounts and provide profile information also allow you to update and/or delete your profile information on those sites.

We may also collect other information when you visit our websites, such as your computer’s Internet protocol (“IP”) address, your browser and operating system, the date and time of your visit, and data based on your use of our websites. We collect this information to maintain and enhance the performance and services of our websites.

How We Share the Information We Collect

We do not share the personally identifiable information we collect from you other than with partner organizations that assist us in carrying out the business of NYLC. We do not sell, rent or otherwise share personal information with other third parties except as described in this Privacy Policy.

We may disclose the personally identifiable information that we collect when required by law or where we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order, or legal process served on us.

In the event that NYLC goes through certain business transitions, such as a merger or dissolution, your personally identifiable information may be part of the assets transferred.

Use of Cookies

We may use cookies and other embedded technologies on our websites to collect information about how you use our websites and to track your logged in status (for our websites that require you to create and log in to an account). A cookie is a small, unique text file that can be sent to your computer when you visit a website. You can set your browser to reject cookies or to notify you when a website tries to put a cookie on your computer. But, rejecting cookies may affect your ability to use all the features of our websites.

Site Monitoring

We monitor our websites and the content created on them, or by using their features and services, to ensure that such content is not abusive, inappropriate or otherwise contrary to NYLC’s programs and objectives, as described in our NYLC.org Usage Agreement and any other usage agreements or terms of use applied to our specific websites. While we monitor our websites on a regular basis, if you encounter a posting, message or other content that you consider to be inappropriate, please report it to nylcweb@nylc.org.

Security

We take industry-standard, reasonable precautions to protect the personally identifiable information we collect, including the use of administrative, technical and physical safeguards and expect our partner organizations to do the same.

Community Websites and Other Forums

Our websites may offer you the ability to make postings, share information on bulletin boards, send user-to-user messages or participate in other interactive forums. Any information you transmit online in such forums may be made public, and NYLC cannot control nor is it responsible for the way any others may use such information

If you have created an account on one of our community websites or requested one or more of our e-mail newsletters, from time to time, we may send you email notifications to provide you with those newsletters or other information concerning updates or enhancements to our services, account issues or service-related announcements.

Our websites may contain links or references to other parties’ sites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or other practices of any such outside sites and expressly disclaim any and all liability related to such sites. We encourage you to consider this before deciding to visit such outside sites and to read the privacy policies and terms of such sites.

Notice to Parents

NYLC does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for our websites. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for our websites or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number or email address. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under age 13, please contact us at contact@nylc.org.

Privacy Policy Changes

We reserve the right to change, modify, add or remove portions of our Privacy Policy at any time without prior notice and at our sole discretion. If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes to this Privacy Policy, on our websites and any other places we may deem appropriate. We will use information in accordance with the Privacy Policy under which the information was collected. All Privacy Policy changes are effective immediately upon posting. The effective date for this Privacy Policy is noted above.
