Privacy Policy

When you use StudentRND services, we collect information about you and your use of those services. This policy describes how we will use that information. Your privacy matters to us, so please take the time to read and understand this policy.

This policy applies to all of the services provided by StudentRND, including both electronic services (such as the StudentRND website) and physical services (such as CodeDay).

This policy changes from time to time. We will post any changes on this site, and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (such as on the homepage or by email notification).

What Information We Collect

We collect two types of information:

  • Information you give us. Many of our services require you to provide information, such as a name, email, address, or billing information. Additionally, some services require you to sign up for or log in with a StudentRND account, which requires similar information.

  • Information we get when you use our services. We collect information when you use our services, such as when you visit the StudentRND website, or when you attend a CodeDay. This information includes:

    • Device Information

      When you visit one of StudentRND's electronic services, we collect information which can be used to uniquely identify your device (such as hardware versions, operating system version, or information your device manufacturer provides such as unique IDs or mobile phone numbers.) We also associate this information with your account.

    • Log Information

      When you use our electronic or physical services, we automatically collect certain information and store it as logs. This includes details of how you used the service (such as how many tickets you bought for CodeDay), timestamps of when your use occured, and device information.

    • Location Information

      When you use our electronic or physical services, we collect information about your physical location. When using our electronic services, we use various technologies to collect this information, such as IP address and GPS or other sensors.

    • Local Storage

      When using our electronic services, we and our partners collect and store information (including personal information and unique identifiers) locally on your device using technologies like Cookies and HTML Local Storage. This information may be sent to our servers.

How We Use Your Information

We use the information we collect to provide, maintain, protect, and improve our services, to develop new ones, and to protect ourselves and our users. We may combine information from one of our services with information from other services, or with information from our partners.

We also use the information we collect to let you know about new or updated services. StudentRND is a non-profit which is funded by contributions from the public, so we may also use this information to contact you, your friends, or your family members about donation and volunteer opportunities.

We may collect and store this information in a country outside the one where you live.

We will ask your permission before using this information for a purpose other than what we've described here.

What Information We Share

We provide some information to trusted partners to process it for us in compliance with appropriate security and confidentiality measures. For example, we provide your payment information to Stripe, which processes credit card transactions for us.

We may share aggregated, non-personally-identifying information with our partners or publicly, such as to show trends.

Limited information, such as your name, email, and the information we get when you use our services, may be shared with partners who are interested in recruiting you for a job, internship, or college, or with partners who provide services of interest to developers. We believe these sort of partnerships provide us both with benefits, but you can opt out of this sort of sharing by sending us an email.

We will provide information agencies, organizations if we have a good-faith belief that doing so is necessary to:

  • Meet an applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request
  • Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
  • Protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of us, our users, our partners, or the public.

Information Security

We use industry-standard measures to protect our data from unauthorized alteration or disclosure. In particular:

  • We encrypt many of our services using HTTPS/TLS
  • We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
  • We restrict access to personal information to employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to provide, maintain, protect, or improve our services.
