The Intersector Project (“Project”) values your privacy. Because The Intersector Project gathers certain types of information from and about users of our digital properties, we want you to fully understand our policies and the terms and conditions surrounding the gathering and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses how we gather, use, and disclose information about you when you are engaged on our website and other digital properties.
By visiting our digital properties, you agree that any information that we collect from or about you through our website services, including personally identifiable information, anonymous information, and aggregate information, will be handled as described in this privacy statement. Your use of our digital properties, and any dispute over privacy, is subject to this privacy statement and any other applicable agreements between you and The Intersector Project, including any applicable limitations on damages and the resolution of disputes.
The Intersector Project collects information voluntarily given by users. For example, if a user signs up for a newsletter, we will collect an email address. Most of our website and digital properties can be viewed without providing personal information. Here are some Intersector services provided via websites, email, and social media that might require you to submit personal information:
We may also collect certain non-personal information that is automatically recorded when users visit our website and other digital properties. We use this non-personal information to make return visits more convenient, to analyze trends, to administer our services, and to better understand how people interact with our digital properties. We improve our digital services by reviewing usage information. Here are types of information that The Intersector Project collects that cannot be used to identify you individually:
We use the information we learn from you to help us personalize and continually improve your experience on our websites and digital properties. We use your personal and non-personal information in the following ways:
The Intersector Project may also use your information to protect the safety, rights, property, or security of the Project, the services, or the general public; to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues; to prevent or stop activity which the Project may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, an illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity; to use as evidence in litigation; to enforce this privacy statement; to comply with applicable legal or regulatory obligations; or as part of an investigation or request from law enforcement or a governmental authority.
The Intersector Project may disclose your information to current or future affiliated organizations; vendors, service providers, or agents who perform functions on our behalf; as part of, including during negotiations or planning for, a business transfer, such as an acquisition or asset sale; to protect the safety, rights, property, or security of The Intersector Project, the Services, or the general public; to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues; to prevent or stop activity which The Intersector Project may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, an illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity; to use as evidence in litigation; to enforce this privacy statement; to comply with applicable legal or regulatory obligations; or as part of an investigation or request from law enforcement or a governmental authority. We may also disclose aggregate, anonymous, or de-identified information about users for marketing, advertising, research, compliance, or other purposes.
We may combine information gathered from our digital properties and information that we have received, gathered, acquired, or stored from other sources, both information collected offline by The Intersector Project and information received from third parties—including information that currently exists in our files—into a single data record. We also use and/or combine information that we collect offline or receive from third-party sources to edit, enhance, and/or check the accuracy of your relationship record.

We may use pixel tags (also referred to as clear GIFs or beacons), in connection with our digital properties to understand the activities of users of our Services, help us manage content, and compile statistics about usage of our Services. We or our third-party service providers may use similar methods in emails to help us understand email response rates and identify when our emails are viewed.
