Like most website operators, RHS collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. RHS’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website.
RHS also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. RHS only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to RHS’s website choose to interact with the website in ways that require RHS to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. From visitors who wish to receive updates via email, we collect their emails. For ticketed events, RHS collects their contact information in order to verify their payment to us and to verify their identity at the ticketed event. RHS collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with RHS. RHS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
RHS may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. These statistics do not personally identify the website’s users.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
RHS will only disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to its employees and contractors that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on RHS’s behalf or to provide services you request, and (ii) have agreed not to disclose it to others. RHS will not disclose personally-identifying information to anyone else unless in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request. RHS may send you emails to tell you about events or solicit your feedback. RHS takes measures to protect against the unauthorized access, use of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
