This information is primarily needed to maintain the security and operation of our Services or Apps and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes.

If you use our Apps, we may also collect the following information:
Geo-Location Information. We may request access or permission to track location-based information from your mobile device continuously or while you are using our mobile application to provide location-based services. If you wish to change our access or permissions, you may do so in your device’s settings.

Mobile Device Access. We may request access or permission to certain features from your mobile device, including your mobile device’s reminders and other features. If you wish to change our access or permissions, you may do so in your device’s settings.

Facebook Permissions. We,  by default, access your Facebook basic account information, including your name, email, gender, birthday, current city, and profile picture URL, as well as other information you choose to make public. For more information regarding Facebook permissions, refer to the Facebook Permissions Reference page.

Your information -for specific services only-  including Personal Data, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers outside your state, province, country, or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ from those from your jurisdiction.

If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Data, to the United States and process it there.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy, followed by your submission of such information, represents your agreement to that transfer.

Dante Alighieri Society of Michigan will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and by this Privacy Policy and that no transfer of your Personal Data will take place to an organization or a country. In addition, there are adequate controls in place, including the security of your data and other personal information if your data is transferred to obtain a service for a specific purpose and /o services.

  1. WILL YOUR INFORMATION BE SHARED WITH ANYONE?
     We only share information with your consent to comply with laws, to provide you with services, to protect your rights, or to fulfill business obligations.
    We may process or share data based on the following legal basis:
    Consent: We may process your data if you have permission to use your personal information for a particular purpose.
    Legitimate Interests: We may process your data when it is reasonably necessary to achieve our legitimate service interests.
  2. IS YOUR INFORMATION TRANSFERRED INTERNATIONALLY?
    In Short: We may transfer, store, and process your information in countries (Italy) other than your own. Our servers are located in the United States. Please be aware that your specific service data may be shared in Italy. Suppose you are a resident of the European Economic Area. In that case, these countries may not necessarily have data protection laws or similar laws as comprehensive as those in your country. However, we will take all necessary measures to protect your personal information per this privacy notice and applicable law.
  3. HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION?
    We will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy policy unless a more extended retention period is required. For example, no sense in this policy will need us to keep your personal information for longer than one year.
    When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your data has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
  4. HOW DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION SAFE?
    We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, please also remember that we cannot guarantee that the internet is 100% secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, the transmission of personal information to and from our Services or Apps is at your own risk. Therefore, you should only access the services within a secure environment.
  5. WHAT ARE YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS?
    In Short:  In some regions, such as the European Economic Area, you have rights that allow you greater access to and control over your personal information. You may review, change, or terminate your account at any time.
    In some regions (like the European Economic Area), you have certain rights under applicable data protection laws. These may include the right (i) to request access and obtain a copy of your personal information, (ii) to request rectification or erasure; (iii) to restrict the processing of your personal information; and (iv), if applicable, to data portability. In certain circumstances, you may also have the right to object to processing your personal information. To make such a request, please use the contact details provided below. We will consider and act upon any request by applicable data protection laws.
    If we rely on your consent to process your personal information, you can withdraw your consent at any time. Please note, however, that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before its withdrawal.
    Suppose you are a resident of the European Economic Area, and you believe we are unlawfully processing your personal information. In that case, you also have the right to complain to your local data protection supervisory authority. You can find their contact details here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/index_en.htm.

  6.  DATA BREACH
    A privacy breach occurs when there is unauthorized access to or collection, use, disclosure, or disposal of personal information. You will be notified about data breaches when Dante Alighieri Society, Inc. (Michigan Chapter) believes you are likely to be at risk of serious harm. For example, a data breach may likely result in severe financial damage or harm your mental or physical well-being. Suppose Dante Alighieri Society, Inc. (Michigan Chapter) becomes aware of a security breach resulting in unauthorized access, use, or disclosure of personal information. In that case, Dante Alighieri Society, Inc. (Michigan Chapter) will promptly investigate the matter and notify the applicable Supervisory Authority not later than 72 hours after having become aware of it unless the personal data breach is unlikely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons.

  7. CONTROLS FOR DO-NOT-TRACK FEATURES
    Most web browsers, mobile operating systems, and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference and not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. However, no uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this privacy policy.
  8. DO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS HAVE SPECIFIC PRIVACY RIGHTS?
    In Short:  Yes, if you are a resident of California, you are granted specific rights regarding access to your personal information.
    California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about categories of personal data (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared personal information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing using the contact information provided below.
    If you are under 18 years of age, reside in California, and have a registered account with the Services or Apps, you have the right to request the removal of unwanted data that you publicly post on the Services or Apps.
