ALL RAISE PRIVACY NOTICE

At All Raise, we understand that your privacy is an important part of the trust you place in us. This Privacy Notice explains how we collect, use, disclose, and otherwise process personal information in connection with our services. This Privacy Notice is not, however, a contract and does not create any legal rights or obligations.

All Raise: Our mission is to accelerate the success of female funders and founders. We believe that by improving the success of women in the venture-backed tech ecosystem, we can build a more accessible community that reflects the diversity of the world around us. All Raise is headquartered in San Francisco, California. When we use the terms “All Raise”, “we”, “us” or “our” in this Privacy Notice, we are referring to All Raise, a non-profit organization.

Our Services: When we use the term “services”, we are referring to the services that we offer on our own behalf, including our funders and founder programs such as the Founders for Change (“FfC”), and the websites and mobile applications that post or link to this Notice.

What is Personal Information?

When we use the term “personal information” in this Privacy Notice, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, to you. It does not include aggregated or anonymized information that is maintained in a form that is not capable of being associated with or reasonably linked to you.

Our Collection of Personal Information

From the first moment you interact with us, we are collecting personal information about you. Sometimes we collect personal information automatically when you interact with our services and sometimes we collect the personal information directly from you. At times, we may collect personal information about you from other sources and third parties, even before our first direct interaction.

Personal Information You Provide

We collect the following personal information you provide in connection with our services:

  • Contact and Account Information. We collect information such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone number, account ID, user ID, photos, and password when you create an account, communicate with us through the services, contact us, sign up to receive our newsletter, apply or participate in one of our programs such as the Bootcamps, Cohorts, VC Champions mentorship program, submit content to or subscribe to VC careers, respond to a survey, or otherwise communicate with us.

  • Comments, Suggestion, Chat, Opinions, and Interactions Through the Services. When you contact us directly, e.g. by email, phone, mail or by completing an online form or participating in an online chat, we will record your comments and opinions. We will also collect information about how you use the services, your actions on the services, and content you post to the services, including the groups you belong to, comments and opinions you express when responding to surveys, commenting on blog posts, and taking part in promotions we run. When you sign up or participate in one of our programs such as Founders for Change, we may also receive information such as company name, founder name, phone, email, photos, videos, social media account information, and other information related to your participation (all collectively, "User Content"). To share photos and video, with your permission, we will access your device camera roll and camera. If you need to update your permissions, you can do so in the "Settings" app of your device.

Please remember that All Raise may, but has no obligation to, monitor, record, and store User Content in order to protect your safety or the safety of other users, to assist with regulatory or law enforcement efforts, or to protect and defend our rights and property. By using the services, you consent to the recording, storage and disclosure of such communications you send or receive for these purposes.

  • Address Book Information. With your permission, we may access your contact list available on your mobile device or your email accounts so that you can locate your contacts on the services or invite your contacts to join our services. We will not use the information contained in your Address Book for any purpose other than to send invitations to your contacts at your request. We do not require that you import your contacts list to the services, and we do not retain the information contained in your contacts list. You understand that by inviting a friend to join our services that you are directly sending the email from your personal accounts. Since this invitation is coming directly from your email, we do not have access to or control this communication.

  • Employment Information. When you apply for a job with us, volunteer with us, or participate in some of our programs that provide a talent database or assist our members with executive searches and job opportunities, we may receive information such as current and past employer, job titles, LinkedIn profile, and any other Personal Information you include in documents such as your resume or cover letters.

Personal Information Automatically Collected

As is true of most digital platforms, we collect certain personal information automatically when you visit our online services, including:

  • Location Information. We collect information about your location with varying degrees of accuracy through GPS/GNSS, WiFi, Bluetooth Low Energy, wireless network triangulation or other methods in order to obtain your location for the purposes of providing our services and facilitate your participation in programs and events occurring in your geographic area. We may also approximate your location by your IP Address. In addition, if you opt-in our mobile app collects your GPS location information. If you enable location features, or do not disable GPS on your mobile device, other members of the service may be able to see your location through public features or services available, such as the ability to see other members near you.

We maintain location information only so long as is reasonable to provide the services and then delete location data tied to your personal information. We may maintain de-identified and anonymized location data for a longer period of time in order to analyze aggregate trends and metrics.

  • Log Files. We record certain information in a log file every time your browser or user-agent requests any information from our server, such as your device's operating system, application software, Internet Protocol (IP) address, access times, crash reports, browser type and language, peripherals, user log data, and the websites you visited before and after our online services.
