You can visit our Site without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. However, in most sections of this Site, you will need to login, either through Build the Wheel’s login process or a third party social networking service, to submit, edit, search, download, and provide feedback on content. You may also be asked to login to contact us with questions or comments. Due to the nature of some of these activities, we may collect personally identifiable information that you submit such as your login, credentials, name, email address, zip code, organization name and organization website. We may also collect additional personally identifiable information that you voluntarily transmit with your communications to us.
The Site may track the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, the aggregate number of users that click on a certain listing, search terms, IP address, browser type, the aggregate number of volunteers from particular cities, states and/or zip codes and other aggregate and anonymous information, and we may analyze this data for trends and statistics in the aggregate, but such information will be maintained, used and disclosed in anonymous and aggregate form only and it will not contain personally identifiable information. For example, we may use this aggregate information to provide volunteer information in your area.
If you decide to use a social networking service to sign in, you are using other services like Facebook Connect and Friend Connect (which includes Yahoo!, AOL/AIM, Google and OpenID). These services give us a token that allows social features on the site, and this token is stored on our third party hosting provider's servers. The respective sign in services have privacy settings and policies that let you control your preferences. By default, those services use a cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for this Site to recognize when you return to the Site. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable this feature.
When you are signed in to the Site, you may send messages, "like" an activity and transmit information through various channels. We collect information from these activities through this Site so that we can provide you with our service and offer personalized features, such as your profile page. In most cases, we retain this information so that, for instance, you can return to view listings you "like" or to easily see your friend list. When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable us to revert to the prior version of that information. If you decide you don't want to have your activity page on the Site, and you're OK with having all history permanently removed, you'll need to fill out and submit the Delete Account form.
