Personal Data We Collect and How We Use It
Personally Identifiable Information is information such as your name, address, email address, and telephone number. You are under no obligation to provide us with personal information of any kind, though you may choose to when you fill out the contact form on this Site.
If you utilize the Researchers Map, you acknowledge that all information you provide is displayed publicly, and that you can choose to use a non-personal identifier, and a non-personal email address. You can request that your information be removed from the map by emailing email@example.com; however, you acknowledge that the information may already have been copied by third-parties in the interim.
We do not collect any personal data unless you directly provide it to us.
RaDVaC may disclose your personal data in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: Comply with a legal obligation, Protect and defend the rights or property of the organization, Prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Site, Protect the personal safety of Users of the Site or the public, or Protect against legal liability.

Cookies and Web Beacons
Who we share your data with
We will only share your data within RaDVaC, as it is necessary to respond to any information requests you make via the contact form, or to ask if you wish to receive ongoing updates on our work, and to send you those updates.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our Site (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this Site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. Please note however, currently our Site is not enabled for accounts or comments.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments and contact form submissions may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How we protect your data
We use administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your personal information. While we have taken reasonable steps to secure the personal information you provide to us, please be aware that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse. Any information disclosed online is vulnerable to interception and misuse by unauthorized parties. Therefore, we cannot guarantee complete security if you provide personal information. In the case of a data breach, if you have provided a means to contact you, we will notify you of the occurrence of the breach, and when and which of your data were accessed.
