We obtain any personal information you choose to submit to us through our websites 11thhourracing.org and marineshift360.org (the “Sites”), emails or other communications, 11th Hour Racing events, sign-up forms or grant applications, and our social media channels. The types of personal information we obtain about you include:

INFORMATION WE OBTAIN

We obtain any personal information you choose to submit to us through our website 11thhourracing.org (the “Site”), emails or other communications, 11th Hour Racing events, sign-up forms or grant applications, and our social media channels. The types of personal information we obtain about you include:

  • Contact information, such as name and email address;
  • Information you submit in connection with a grant or project application, such as the name and website of your organization, the name of the organization’s primary contact, a description of the proposed project, and the amount of funding requested;
  • Images or videos captured at community engagement events;
  • Your engagement with and any information you share through our social media channels; and
  • Other information you choose to provide in connection with a message or inquiry.

In addition, when you visit our Sites, we obtain certain information by automated means, such as cookies, web beacons, web server logs and other technologies. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server. The information we collect in this manner may include your device IP address, unique device identifier, web browser characteristics, device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, clickstream data, and dates and times of website visits.

These automated technologies provide us information about your equipment, browsing actions, and usage patterns. These technologies help us (1) remember your information so you do not have to re-enter it; (2) track and understand how you use and interact with our Sites; (3) measure the usability of our Sites and the effectiveness of our communications; and (4) otherwise manage and enhance our services, and help ensure they are working properly.

Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies or how to restrict or disable certain types of cookies. Note, that without cookies you may not be able to use all of the features of our Sites. For mobile devices, you can manage how your device and browser share certain device data by adjusting the privacy and security settings on your mobile device.

Our Sites are not designed to respond to “do not track” signals from browsers.

HOW WE USE INFORMATION

We use the personal information we obtain about you to:

  • Provide and administer sponsorships, grants, and other funding and support;
    Respond to your inquiries;
  • Send you newsletters, marketing materials and other communications;
    Protect against and prevent fraud, unauthorized transactions, claims and other liabilities;
  • Operate, evaluate and improve our programs and services (including managing the Sites, developing new programs services; enhancing and improving our programs and services; managing our communications; analyzing our programs and services; performing data analytics; and performing accounting, auditing, and other internal functions);
  • Maintain and enhance the safety and security of our Sites and prevent misuse; and
  • Comply with and enforce applicable legal requirements, industry standards, and 11th Hour Racing policies and terms, including our Terms of Use.

We use third-party analytics services to measure activity on our Sites and engagement with our social media channels. The information we obtain may be disclosed to or collected directly by these services. To learn more about Google Analytics, one of our third-party analytics providers, please visit https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.

We also may use information in other ways for which we will provide specific notice at the time of collection.

We retain information for as long as it is needed for the purposes outlined above, as permitted or required by law, and for tax or other record-keeping purposes.

INFORMATION WE SHARE

We may share the information we obtain about you with our affiliates, as well as entities that serve as partners in our programs. We also may share the information we obtain about you with service providers and other entities to perform certain services on our behalf.

In addition, we may disclose personal information (1) if we are required to do so by law or legal process (such as a court order or subpoena); (2) in response to requests by government agencies, such as law enforcement authorities; (3) to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights; (4) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical or other harm or financial loss; (5) in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity; or (6) otherwise with your consent.

We reserve the right to transfer any personal information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a merger, acquisition, joint venture, reorganization, divestiture, dissolution, or liquidation).

HOW WE PROTECT PERSONAL INFORMATION

We maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to protect personal information against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure, or use.
