“Personal Information” is information that uniquely identifies you or can identify you by combining it with other data. It includes your name combined with other information associated with you, such as email address, phone number, postal address and birthdate. The legal name and definition of personal information differs from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
As set forth below, RG and Local Chapters are committed to exercise confidentiality as it concerns Personal Information about members, staff, and community partners. If you have questions about these practices, contact [email protected].
RG and Local Chapters. We are a social justice organization that organizes young people (18-35 years old) with wealth in the U.S to become transformative leaders working towards the equitable distribution of wealth, land and power. For our purposes, we define wealth as roughly in the top 10% of the US economy. RG hosts national conferences, builds leadership, and engages in a variety of collective actions, including its annual conference, “Making Money Make Change.”
In addition, RG members operate separate, place-based “Local Chapters” in cities, towns and college campuses. Local Chapters host activities such as meetings, workshops, donor circles, and other collective actions. Members may engage in “Praxis,” a fixed-duration, peer-learning program focused on our relationship to and understanding of class privilege, wealth, giving, and more.
Local Chapters may use RG national systems such as EveryAction to support their local and digital organizing efforts under the guidance of RG national policies and procedures. In addition to EveryAction, Local Chapters may use other digital platforms, including email, text and social media, to communicate with their members and collect information for organizing purposes. RG national does not manage these platforms, and members should inquire of the Local Chapter with respect to their use.
Information We Collect. RG may collect your Personal Information when you directly submit it to us on registration forms or pledges, donate to RG, or provide it during interactions with Local Chapters or the public through social media, listservs and other digital platforms. For wealth-specific information we may collect and share, see the “Wealth Specific Information” sections below.
When you visit our website, we collect other data that may not be Personal Information, such as your activity on the site, the websites you visited before and after our Site, and the type of device you used to access our Site. We use the information we collect from and about visitors to our Site to improve our Site and analyze its usage by visitors.
Wealth Specific Information Collected. To advance our mission, RG may ask individuals to volunteer information related to their net wealth. All data related to giving commitments, overall net assets or other wealth specific information received from individuals is maintained in a platform called EveryAction. Access to EveryAction is restricted to RG national staff, board and committee members, and select Local Chapter leaders for internal, organizing-related purposes only.
In EveryAction, we maintain certain wealth specific information: whether you have self-identified as a “constituent” (between the ages of 18-35 with access to wealth) on our Membership form; notes from any subsequent one-to-one conversation with RG staff or Local Chapter leaders about your wealth and access to it; the social justice organizations you identify on our Redistribution Pledge, your planned contributions to them, and whether you fulfill them.
Access to and Sharing of Wealth Specific Information. RG and Local Chapter leaders with access to Wealth Specific Information in EveryAction sign a Confidentiality Agreement that limits its disclosure. We may share the aggregated pledge totals contained in EveryAction with social justice organizations to whom pledges are planned. At times, with your permission, national RG staff may share an individual member’s first name, last initial and pledged amount with a named social justice organization so the organization can anticipate the financial gift pledged.
By using our website, it is possible that we will have general information about your geolocation to analyze the location of our users for outreach purposes. If you do not want us to collect information about your geographic location, you should disable the technology that transmits this information.
There are “do not track” or similar browser choices available to internet users with respect to online web activity, but given the present lack of consensus of what constitutes an informed election, appropriate trigger or breadth of scope of such choice, our Site will not operate any differently when a “do not track” signal is received.
Minors. We do not organize or collect the Personal Information of children under the age of 18. If you learn that your child has accessed the Site and provided us with Personal Information without your consent, please email us at [email protected] to have their information removed.
Protection of Your Personal Information. RG has taken steps to protect your Personal Information (including but not limited to Wealth Specific Information) from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or destruction, but no security measures are completely secure. We do not and cannot guarantee the security of your information. If you have reason to believe that your Personal Information has been compromised, please contact us at [email protected]immediately.
Privacy Rights of California Residents. If you are a California resident, you may have certain rights with respect to your Personal Information including the following rights:
- the right to “opt-out” of our sale of your Personal Information to any third parties;
- the right, with some exceptions, to have your Personal Information deleted from our possession or control; and
- the right to receive equal service and pricing from us even if you exercise any of your privacy rights.
For all California residents, any such inquiries shall be responded to within forty-five (45) days and at no cost to you. We must verify your identity with respect to such inquiries. Depending on the nature of the Personal Information at issue, we may require additional measures or information from you as part of that verification.
For California residents under age 18 who have publicly posted content or information, you may request and obtain removal of such content or information pursuant to California Business and Professions Code Section 22581, provided you are a registered user of any Site where this Policy is posted. To make such a request, please send an email with a detailed description of the specific content or information to [email protected]. Please be aware that such a request does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information you have posted and that the law may not require or allow removal in all instances, even if requested.
International Users. Despite the global nature of the Internet, RG makes no claims that the Site is appropriate or may be viewed or used outside the United States. RG is a US-based organization with exclusive US membership and our databases are located in the United States.
We may need to verify your identity before providing you with Personal Information or updating it in our system.
