Third-party Access and Use

Occasionally, we or our Partners, use third-party service providers to help provide or improve the services we offer you. Sometimes these providers have access to the Information we collect about you as a part of providing, maintaining, and improving the Services.

We share aggregate information about our users with certain third parties. This information shows user activity at a group level, rather than on an individual basis.

In the unlikely event that It’s Your District undergoes a sale or transfer of all or substantially all of its assets, the acquiring entity may use your Information subject to this Privacy Policy. In addition, in the further unlikely event that It’s Your District is adjudicated bankrupt or insolvent (a) there will be no further use or disclosure of your personally identifiable Information by It’s Your District and (b) reasonable efforts will be taken to ensure your personally identifiable Information on It’s Your District's servers will be destroyed. In addition, there will be no use or disclosure of your personally identifiable Information by any entity that acquires assets of It’s Your District pursuant to such bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings.

Due to factors beyond our control, however, we cannot fully ensure that your Information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, we may be legally obligated to disclose Information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access your Personal Information.

Children's Privacy

We welcome Volunteers of all ages, including children under the age of thirteen. Due to our status as a non-profit organization, we are not required to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). However, we strongly encourage our volunteers aged thirteen and under to use our Services only with parental consent and supervision.
