I. General Statements
Here at RSA, we take privacy very seriously—we believe that everyone should be empowered to have complete control over their own data. To achieve that mission, we strive to present you with a completely transparent policy and follow it with predictable consistency.
In general, RSA does not collect personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide that information to us; however, we do use third parties like Google Analytics and Facebook to gather anonymous traffic data about all our website visitors. This data can’t be used to directly identify you and is collected so we can better understand and serve our users. We also never store any sensitive information on our servers thereby avoiding the compromise of any sensitive data.
When you choose to provide us with your personal information, you are giving RSA your permission to use that information for the stated purposes listed in Section 3. If you opt-out of providing this information, it might limit your use of some features and services of this website.
Any information requested by RSA will be used to provide you with product/service you have requested a website feature or service to you such as commenting, support, or providing future content better tailored to your interests. An in-depth description of RSA’s intended use of that information, how that information is collected, security measures in place to protect that information, your rights as a website user, and how to contact us to exercise aforementioned rights, is provided in the following sections.
II. What information we do and do not collect
Occasionally while browsing our site, we may ask you for your email address or a service may require you enter your email address. Remember that emails are not encrypted by default, so we advise against including any sensitive information such as Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, or bank account information during email communications.
Sometimes RSA will request information from you through surveys or contests. Participation is always completely voluntary and often doesn’t require you to complete all information fields. Information requested may include contact information (i.e. name, email, shipping address), demographic information (i.e. zip code, age level, marital status), and most importantly your opinions. We highly value your feedback and treat all information provided with the utmost respect.
Third party credentials
In some cases, while interacting with our website a third-party application such as Facebook or Twitter may request information from you and your computer, often including, but not limited to, an email address, username, password, internet protocol (IP) address, and geographic location for account registration or log-in. RSA does not have access to this information nor transmits or stores any of this information on our servers; therefore, we never collect any personal data from your interactions with these site features. Your use of these third-party services and the way they handle the data you provide them on our website is governed by their individual privacy policies.
Aggregated demographics and site behavior data
Third party websites such as Google Analytics and Facebook measure certain statistics about our site visitors and the actions they take while on our website. This information consists of non-identifiable, anonymous demographic information (i.e. gender, age range, ethnicity, etc.) and site behavior variables (i.e. pages viewed, links clicked, scroll depth etc.) that is both gathered and stored by aforementioned third parties in a secure way described by each of their own individual privacy policies.
Cookies collect and temporarily store certain information about your visit, including:
- Your site username and password, if you have them
- The domain and browser you access our website from
- Your computer’s IP address and operating system
- The date and time you access the site
- The Universal Resource Locators (URLs) of the pages you visit on our website
- The URL of site you came from, if you clicked a link there that brought you to our website
- Information about your past browsing experiences on the site
III. How we use the information we collect
Contact information is used to notify the winners, award prizes, and thank participants for their time. Any demographic information given is used to understand the diversity of our customer segments and their needs so that we can better satisfy our community of users. Survey feedback is exceedingly important to us and we continuously use it to provide more value, maximize convenience, and deliver personalized user experiences on our site and in our business.
Third party credentials
We use third party services such as commenting plug-ins, social media plug-ins, and websites to interact with our site visitors and to build our brand community across social media. RSA neither collects nor uses the information these services require.
Aggregated demographics and site behavior data
The anonymous demographic and site behavior data that RSA’s third-party partners collect allow RSA to develop insights about how to make our website and content more relevant for current and future users. Demographic data is used to improve our understanding of the various customer segments we serve and their specific needs so that we can provide all our users with more personalized, efficient user experiences. Site behavior information is used in a similar manner but is particularly necessary to optimize our website design for convenience and ease-of-use.
The information from the RSA cookie is used to help us ensure our content and website design are aligned with our current and future users’ needs so that we can provide the most optimal user experience possible. The cookie gathers essential information that enables us to understand and identify the interests of our users and give users with the cookie improved site access. We partner with third party analytics companies like Facebook and Google Analytics that collect and aggregate this data for us. Usage of our cookie is not linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
IV. Who we share the information we collect with
Billing and contact information
We use payment processing companies to bill users for goods and services. The company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any purpose but the transaction. If such information is required, it will be via a web page that clearly states the page and its transmission of information is secure and encrypted.
We partner with Facebook and Google to provide and distribute content—we share collected email addresses in a secure way with these two companies to improve the accuracy and relevancy of our content distribution. These parties are only permitted to use the information we share with them for the purpose of providing these services to us.
Aggregated demographics and site behavior data
We share aggregated demographic information and site behavior data with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify a particular person and is only used to allow us to monitor the site with advanced analytics and security.
RSA takes the security of your personal information very seriously—it is a necessity in our mission to give you complete control of your data. We enact many modern security technologies to ensure that the information we collect, transmit, and store is protected, backed-up, and inaccessible by unauthorized persons or entities. Our security measures are regularly upgraded and tested to ensure their effectiveness.
We have the following security protocols in place to protect your data:
- Internal access is controlled so only necessary personnel have access to stored information.
- All aforementioned necessary personnel are trained on all security and compliance policies.
- The computers/servers in which we store business information are kept in a secure environment, password-protected, and encrypted.
- Servers that store visitor information are regularly backed up to protect against loss.
- All information is secured through modern security technologies like secure socket layer (SSL), encryption, firewalls, and secure passwords.
- Whenever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page (the URL may also show a padlock icon or appear in green text).
This website contains links to other websites. Please be aware that although we only try and link to and associate ourselves with reputable and safe sites, we are not responsible for the content nor privacy practices of other sites. We encourage our users to be vigilant when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that might collect personally identifiable information.
