We collect your personal information in order to provide and continually improve our Services.
Here are the types of personal information we collect:
We will share your information with our parent company, OpenDeal Inc., and its subsidiaries (our “Affiliated Entities”). If the Services you use are exclusively provided by RAS, you have the right to opt-out marketing communications from our Affiliated Entities (“Affiliate Marketing”), please see Your Choice About Your Information below for details.
Additionally, we provide your Personal Information on a confidential basis to non-affiliated companies we engage as vendors or agents to (i) facilitate the Services provided on the Site, such as counsels, advisors, accountants, and financial service providers, and (ii) to service our operation, such as maintaining software or servers, designing or implementing marketing initiatives on our behalf, or conducting audit or testing of any aspect of our operation or Services. Information will be shared with such parties only to the extent reasonably necessary for them to perform services for us or on our behalf and pursuant to confidentiality obligations, or in response to information requests, subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, from law enforcement agencies, self-regulatory organizations, state, federal and foreign regulators.
RAS does not sell any user data to third-party firms.
When you sign up for our Services, we will send periodic emails to you regarding the Services or to tell you about additional services we believe will be of interest to you. You may choose to stop receiving our marketing emails or Affiliated Marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails, adjusting your account notification settings, or contacting us at [email protected].
We will retain your Personal Information for as long as our relationship with you is active or as needed to provide you with the Services, unless a longer retention period is required by law. We may retain all of the Personal Information you submit for backups, archiving, prevention of fraud and abuse, analytics, satisfaction of legal obligation, or where we otherwise reasonably believe that we have a legitimate reason to do so. If you wish to request that we no longer use your Personal Information, or if you have any questions about our data retention obligations and practices, please contact us at [email protected].
We use commercially reasonable efforts to follow generally accepted standards to protect Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. When you enter sensitive information (such as bank account information) on our Site, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). From time to time, we review our security procedures to consider appropriate new technology and methods. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is free of risk. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by a breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. We disclaim all responsibility and liability for unauthorized access to our servers and systems.
The Site is not intended for use by children. No one under eighteen (18) years of age is allowed to use the Site, the Services, provide any Personal Information or receive our email distributions. We do not knowingly solicit or collect Personal Information from anyone under eighteen (18) years of age. If you believe that a minor has disclosed Personal Information to RAS, please report this to us immediately at [email protected].
