RMS owns or otherwise controls the servers that process and store PI and any messages, images, profiles, reviews, listings, or any other content ("Content") that you publish, display, or otherwise transmit directly or indirectly ("Post") on the Sites, in whatever form. RMS will endeavor to use reasonable efforts and standard industry practices to keep PI confidential and to protect it from unauthorized access, use and disclosure. The security measures employed by RMS are described in Section 8 hereof. By using the Sites and RMS’ services, you agree that RMS may share your PI with third parties as set forth in Section 3 hereof. If a Client has subscribed to RMS’ services and you are a constituent of that Client, then, by opting in to use the RMS service, you agree that, at that Client's request, RMS may share your PI with that Client for the purposes of administering and using the Site’s services, as well as reviewing reports detailing usage of the Site.
2. Your Profile
2.1 You will be asked to create a Member account ("Account"). If you choose to do so, your Account may be configured to enable you to be identified by others as you use the Sites.
2.2 Your Account will generally include information regarding your wireless phone number and your wireless carrier or any other contact information you provide.
2.3 Your email address is used to contact you in connection with your activities on the Sites (including, but not limited to, confirmation emails or important news affecting your relationship with your municipality, school or company, as applicable). It may also be used to gather feedback via surveys to enable RMS to improve the Sites according to your needs and to forward messages to you from other Members.
2.4 RMS may use aggregated Member data for external purposes (such as reporting total monthly messaging volume utilizing RMS services) and internal purposes (such as maintenance of RMS software used in connection with the provision of its services); provided that such information shared with third parties will be aggregated in a manner that prevents Member PI from being identified to, or associated with, a particular Client or Member.
3. Third Parties
a) if disclosing your PI is reasonably necessary to execute a specific request by you or a Client (e.g., your wireless phone number may be submitted to other service providers in order to transmit messages that you send or receive) or in connection with third-party services provided to or on behalf of RMS (e.g., certain PI may be disclosed to or accessible by a company servicing RMS’ computer systems or administering the Sites). In these cases RMS attempts to ensure, including through the use of confidentiality agreements, obligations or policies, that the third parties will not collect, use, disclose or store any PI except to provide the specific services requested by you or RMS;
d) if RMS sells assets or is acquired by or merges with another entity, in which event your PI may be disclosed to the acquiring or successor company and its professional advisors who are under an obligation of confidentiality; or
e) if you otherwise give RMS explicit permission to disclose your PI.
We do not now and do not intend to sell, rent or market PI to third parties.
5. Cookies and Log Files
RMS has implemented security measures designed to protect Member PI from loss, misuse and alteration. RMS uses practices that it believes are industry-standard, such as encrypted storage, firewalls and password protection systems, to safeguard the confidentiality of your PI. Passwords are encrypted and hidden from System Administrators, and other types of PI may be encrypted using industry best practices. Only authorized RMS personnel are permitted to access PI, and these personnel are required to treat this PI as confidential. Despite these precautions, it is not possible to guarantee the security of PI, including PI stored on a computer or transmitted over the internet, a computer network, or by wireless carrier. Accordingly, RMS cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to PI.
8. You Have Control Over Your Personal Information
You can change your PI stored on the Sites at any time, whether it be the information supplied at registration, as part of your Profile or Account, or anything else. You may change information in, as applicable to your RMS service, the "My Profile", and/or "My Account" areas. In some cases, the Client may provide your PI to RMS on your behalf, and you may contact the Client to request changes to PI supplied to RMS by the Client.
