The laws in some jurisdictions require companies to tell you about the legal ground they rely on to use or disclose information that can be directly linked to or used to identify you. To the extent those laws apply, our legal grounds for processing such information are as follows:
To Honor Our Commitments to You: Much of our processing of information is to provide services to our users.

- Customer service
- Marketing, advertising, and fundraising
- Protecting our users, personnel, and property
- Organizing and running events and programs
- Analyzing and improving our Service

4. Online Analytics
We may use third-party web analytics services (such as Google Analytics) on our Services to collect and analyze the information discussed above, and to engage in auditing, research, or reporting. The information collected by various analytics technologies described in the "Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies" section above will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate the use of the Services, including by noting the third-party website from which you arrive to our Site, analyzing usage trends, assisting with fraud prevention, and providing certain features to you.

5. Security Measures
We have implemented technical, physical, and organizational security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and/or alteration of your information. These safeguards vary based on the sensitivity of the information that we collect and store. However, we cannot and do not guarantee that these measures will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use, or disclose your information since despite our efforts, no Internet and/or other electronic transmissions can be completely secure.
