The Sequoia Awards observes the following privacy policy to protect the personal information you may provide to us.

 Data You Provide to Us

When you visit our site, we provide you with ways to contact us or submit your information. If you submit an application for one of our scholarships, nominate someone for recognition, buy a ticket to our awards dinner, or sign up to donate or become a sponsor, we will collect the relevant information. When you sign up for our mailing list, we will collect your email address. If you provide us with feedback or otherwise contact us through the site or via email, we will collect your name and email address, as well as any other content you include.

 Data We Collect Using Technology

This website does collect certain kinds of usage data using analytics and cookies, such as the number of hits and visits to our site, what browser and operating system you use, your IP address, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit. This information may be used by our organization for internal statistical purposes. A “cookie” is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. We may use cookies to provide easier site navigation and access to forms.

 Use of Your Data

We may use your information in the following ways: to operate, maintain, and improve our site; to process sponsorships, donations, dinner ticket purchases, and scholarship applications; to send you administrative emails; to send you email about our process or events; to respond to your comments or inquiries; and to protect against fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity.

We will not automatically enroll you in any promotional or email campaigns. Should you elect to sign up for one of our mailing lists by submitting your email address in our mailing list subscription form, you may “opt-out” by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in emails you receive from us.

 Disclosure of Your Data

We may share your personal information with our third-party service providers (for example, the company that hosts our site) in order to process your application, nomination, sponsorship, or dinner ticket purchase. We do not disclose personal information to further promote The Sequoia Awards, or to third parties for their marketing purposes. However, we may disclose information about you if we believe such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with laws or to respond to lawful requests and legal process; (b) protect or defend the rights or safety of users of the services, or any person; or (c) in an emergency to protect the personal safety of any person.

 Third Party Websites

Our site may contain links to third party sites. When you click on a link to any other site, you will leave our site and another entity may collect personal information or anonymous data from you. We have no control over, do not review, and cannot be responsible for these outside websites or their content. Please be aware that the terms of this privacy policy do not apply to these outside sites or to any collection of your personal information after you click on links to such sites. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of every website you visit. The links to third party sites or locations are for your convenience and we do not endorse such third parties or their products or content.

 Security of Your Personal Information

We take reasonable steps to help protect your personal information in an effort to prevent unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Despite these measures, we cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with personal information. No means or method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
