HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We use the Personal Data we collect in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. We may use the Personal Data as follows:

To provide our Services to you - Our Services help you find, register, and participate in Events. We use your Personal Data to authorize and facilitate access to our Services.

To communicate with you about your use of our Services - We may contact you to inform you of important information related to our Services. Additionally, we enable Event Organizers for Events in which you have registered to contact you. For certain types of communication, we offer settings/unsubscribe abilities that allow you to control the communications you receive from us and Event Organizers.

To provide Services at the request of the Event Organizers - We serve as a conduit between you and the Event Organizer. As such, we use your Personal Data to provide our Services to Event Organizers of the Event in which you have registered.

To administer Events - We share your Personal Data when you register for an Event with the Event Organizer for their Event management purposes.

To fulfill your purchases or interests in third-party services - When you use our Services you may be given the option to receive free or paid services from our third-party partners (e.g. registration insurance, recruiting profile) or our majority-owned subsidiary, Mindset, or wholly-owned subsidiary, Recruit. If you opt-in to any of these offerings, your Personal Data will be shared with the specific third-party or subsidiary to fulfill your request.

HOW WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

There are certain circumstances in which we may disclose, transfer or share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you. These circumstances are described below:

Event Organizers - When you register for an Event, make a purchase, or otherwise use our Services that are fulfilled by third-party Event Organizers, you consent to our providing your Personal Data to the Event Organizers of such event. For Events that involve the collection of Ryzer Verified Data from Participants, the Event Organizer may choose to provide you with an electronic event scorecard of your results and, if any of your results qualify, you may appear on a Recruit leaderboard.  To be removed from a leaderboard, please Contact Us.  These Event Organizers are not bound to protect your Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy. It is important that you review the information collection and protection policies of the Event Organizers of an event prior to providing Personal Data in connection with that event or related fundraising campaign. You agree that we are not responsible for the actions of these Event Organizers with respect to your Personal Data.  

Ryzer Recruit – Recruit’s Services include, online profiles, search functions, and leaderboards to help you get noticed by and showcase your abilities to Coaches, Recruiters, and other Users. When you attend an Event that collects Ryzer Verified Data, we may publicly display a subset of your Personal Data including your first and last name, school, age, graduation year, physical attributes, and performance metrics.  Additionally, your achievements, including your Ryzer Verified Data may be published on Internet sites and/or social media platforms (e.g., a "shout out" that you appear on a certain leaderboard). You can update your profile sharing options from within the Profile & Notification Settings section of Ryzer. To be removed from a leaderboard, please Contact Us.

Service Providers and Partners - We may engage third-party companies or individuals as service providers to help support our business. Information about the subprocessors we use to support our Services can be found in our Subprocessor Policy. Similarly, we may establish system integrations with third-party partners offering complimentary services to ours in order to allow you or Event Organizers to share your Personal Data across multiple systems (such as recruiting, compliance, evaluation, and insurance systems). These third parties have limited access to your Personal Data to perform these tasks on our behalf, your behalf, or the behalf of Event Organizers and are obligated to us not to disclose or use it for other purposes. In the instance where you specifically request us to send your Personal Data to a third-party by opting-in to an offer presented during the registration process, you acknowledge that Ryzer and Event Organizers are not a party to any transaction between you and any third-party. The fact that we introduced or facilitated your relationship with the third-party is not an endorsement or sponsorship by us or Event Organizers of the third-party.

Business Transfers and Affiliates - As our business evolves, we may buy or sell businesses or other assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, dissolution, bankruptcy, reorganization, or similar event, your Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets. You acknowledge and agree that any successor to or acquirer of Ryzer or its assets will have the right to continue to use the Personal Data and other information you provide to us in the manner set out in this Privacy Policy. We may also disclose your Personal Data to our corporate affiliates and subsidiaries in order to help provide, understand, and improve our Services and our affiliates' services. If we do so, our corporate affiliates and subsidiaries use and disclosure of your Personal Data will be subject to this Privacy Policy.

YOUR CHOICES AND OBLIGATIONS

Data Retention — In order to provide our Services to you and the Event Organizers of Events in which you've registered or have shown interest in attending, we retain your Personal Data until you request us to delete it.

Your rights to Access and Control your Personal Data — We offer you a variety of ways to control how your Personal Data is collected, used, shared, stored, updated, and corrected. Your choices are as follows:

If you wish to make a request related to the retention, use, or access of your Personal Data, you may contact us using the contact information below and we will consider your request in accordance with applicable laws. Such requests must include a copy of your driver's license or other government issued form of identification to confirm your identity.

Additionally, we will retain your Non-Personal Data after your account has been closed.

INTERNATIONAL PRIVACY

If you use our Services from outside the United States, be advised that you are sending information, which may include Personal Data, to our servers in the United States. The information you provide may then be transferred within the United States or back out of the United States to other countries outside of your country of residence. These countries may not have data protection and privacy laws as protective as those in your country of residence. Our collection, storage and use of your Personal Data will be governed by this Privacy Policy.

For residents of EEA, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The EU General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") requires us and Event Organizers using our Services to provide you with additional information about the processing of their Personal Data. The legal grounds for us processing your Personal Data typically include at least one of the following:

EU data protection law makes a distinction between organizations that process Personal Data for their own purposes ("Data Controllers") and organizations that process Personal Data on behalf of other organizations ("Data Processors"). We may act as either a Data Controller or a Data Processor in respect of your Personal Data, depending on the circumstances. If you have a question or complaint about how your Personal Data is handled, these should be directed to the relevant Data Controller since they are the ones with primary responsibility for your Personal Data.

If you have a question or complaint regarding how we handle your Personal Data, please submit your request using this Data Rights Requests Form or send an email to privacy@ryzer.com.

LINKS TO EXTERNAL SITES

Our site may contain links to other sites on the Internet that are not under our control. Ryzer is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. See our Terms of Use.

COOKIES, PIXELS, WEB BEACONS AND OTHER SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables features and functionality for our Services. As described in the Terms of Use, we use cookies on our sites (e.g. Ryzer.com, RyzerEvents.com, and our Event Organizer sites) and mobile applications. Any browser visiting these sites will receive cookies from us.

We use two types of cookies - persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user of our Services, so it is easier to interact with our Services without needing to sign in again. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (typically this means the cookie lasts as long as your current visit/use of our Services or browser session). Cookies can be used to recognize you when you use our Services, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience. Cookies also make your interactions with our Services faster and more secure.

Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of our Services to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience of our Services, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also prohibit you from registering for Events.

SECURITY

Our websites and other digital properties have security measures in place designed to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the Personal Data under our control. We have taken numerous steps to promote the confidentiality, accuracy and security of your payment information, including using Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) encryption when credit card information is exchanged between your web browser and our Services.

We strive to maintain the reliability, accuracy, and completeness of personal data in our databases and to protect the privacy and security of our databases. However, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

CHILDREN'S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT

We do not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under the age of thirteen (13). Please do not submit your Personal Data through our Services if you are under the age of thirteen (13).

We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children's Internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Policy by instructing their children never to provide Personal Data through our Services without their permission. If you believe a child under the age of thirteen (13) has provided Personal Data to us through our Services, please contact us.

It is important to understand we may collect, store, and/or share Personal Data of a child under the age of thirteen (13) if the Personal Data was provided by an adult (e.g. the child's parent, legal guardian or representative in order to register the child for an event or build a non-public profile to find events for the child).
