AGC Construction Education Foundation (“AGC CEF”or “We”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through our compliance with this policy. This policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit the website www.buildcalifornia.com (“Website”), and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information. This policy applies to information we collect on this Website or in email and other electronic messages between you and this Website. It does not apply to information collected by us offline or through any other means, including on any other website operated by AGC CEF or any third party, or by any third party, including through any application or content (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from or on the Website.
- Information Collection Practices
- Types of Information Collected
We collect several types of information from and about users of our Website, including information: (i) by which you may be personally identified, such as name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, or any other identifier by which you may be contacted online or offline (“personal information”); (ii) that is about you but individually does not identify you; and/or (iii) about your internet connection, the equipment you use to access our Website, and usage details. This information is collected directly from you when you provide it to us, automatically as you navigate through the site (e.g., usage details, IP addresses, domain name, type of browser, equipment being used), or from third parties (e.g., our business partners). We use “cookies” only to store user preferences and to record session information (e.g., user password, items added to a shopping cart).
- Uses of Information Collected
AGC CEF’s primary objective in collecting user information is to provide the best member and customer service possible. AGC CEF collects information on the Website to provide educational and career development and advancement resources to those who request it and/or provide data. We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personal information, to present our Website and its contents to you, to provide you with this information, products, resources, or services, to fulfill any other purpose for which you provide it, to provide you with notices about your account, to carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us (e.g., billing and collection), to allow you to participate in interactive features on our Website, in any other way we may describe when you provide the information, or for any other purpose with your consent.
- Disclosure of Your Information
We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.
- Accessing and Correcting Your Information
You can review and change your personal information by logging into the Website and visiting your personal account profile page. You may also send us an email at email@example.com to request access to, correct, or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
- Children Under the Age of 13
- Information We Collect from Children
The target audience for AGC CEF’s Build California program, and the resources, services and products provided by the Build California program, is individuals ages 12-24. Children can access many parts of the Website and its content and use many of its features without providing us with personal information. However, some content and features are available only to registered users and/or require us to collect certain information, including personal information, from them. In addition, as explained above, we use certain technologies, such as cookies, to automatically collect some information from our users (including children) when they visit or use the Website. We only collect as much information about a child as is reasonably necessary, and we do not condition his or her participation on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary.
- Information We Collect Directly
A child must provide us with certain information to register with this Website and/or we may request certain information from a child to provide the resources, services and products of the Website, including name, birth date, subject interests, contact information (e.g., email address and/or telephone number) and a parent’s email address. We may also require the child to create a member name and password. We may request additional information from your child as is reasonably necessary. We specify whether information is required or optional when we request it.
- Automatic Information Collection
We use technology to automatically collect information from our users, including children, when they access and navigate through the Website and use certain of its features. The information we collect through these technologies may include the user’s domain name, IP address, and certain information about the user’s equipment (e.g., type of browser, screen resolution, support of Java). Our server does not automatically record or recognize user-specific, personal information.
- How We Use Your Child’s Information
The purpose of data collection (including collection of data from a child) is to provide educational and career development and advancement resources to those who request it and/or provide data. AGC CEF uses the personal information we collect from your child, and shares some such information with AGC CEF chapters and third parties, for the purpose of executing these products, services, and resources. AGC CEF occasionally shares some collected information with member and nonmember individuals and entities. AGC CEF generally does not sell or trade collected information to third parties specifically for commercial use. However, AGC CEF reserves the right to sell or trade collection information with any third party with consent by you (or in the case of a child, with consent of the parent(s)).
We use the information we collect automatically through technology (see Automatic Information Collection) and other non-personal information we collect to improve our Website and to provide the best services and resources possible.
- Accessing and Correcting Your Child’s Personal Information
At any time, you may review the child’s personal information maintained by us, require us to correct or delete the personal information, and/or refuse to permit us from further collecting or using the child’s information.
You can review, change, or delete your child’s personal information by logging into your child’s account and visiting his or her account profile page, by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org (to protect the privacy and security or you and/or the child, we may require you to take certain steps or provide additional information to verify your identity before we provide any information or make corrections), or by calling us at (916) 371-2422.
- California Privacy Rights
If you are a California resident, California law may provide you with additional rights regarding our use of your personal information. To learn more about your California privacy rights, view our AGC Construction Education Foundation Privacy Notice for California Residents .
California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our Website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to email@example.com or write us at: 3095 Beacon Boulevard, West Sacramento, California 95691.
- Data Security
This Website and the servers that store collected information have industry–standard security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under AGC CEF’s control. Please note, however, that no security system is 100% secure. Authentic Website pages requesting credit card information will be secure web pages, and sensitive data will be encrypted for transmission. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website. Absent user consent, AGC CEF does not knowingly share credit card numbers with third parties except to the extent necessary for, and incidental to, the purposes for which the user supplied the information.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
- Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights
If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the “right to opt-out”). We do not sell the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt-in”) from either the consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time.
To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to personal information sales at any time by sending an email to email@example.com.
You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your opt-out rights. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.
