Last policy update: 17 April 2015
Rise is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
Rise may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.
We may collect the following information:
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
Rise provides its service for both Managers (users who create and manage leaderboards) and Players (users who participate in leaderboards).
Rise works like a social network to ensure the data privacy needs of both players and managers are protected. As such different data items are controlled by the two different user types as follows:
Players control their profile, their name, their profile image, social network identities, their social network permissions, their email address. They may authorize some or all of these for use on a per Leaderboard basis.
Managers control the leaderboard name, description, look and feel, scoring calculation, player list and release history (including score totals for each variable).
For privacy purposes Rise takes the view that score entries are ultimately controlled by the player (eg. an individual tweet) while recognising that in many cases it is the manager who enters scores on behalf of the player. A manager may decide not to allow a particular score entry to be assigned points (e.g. an irrelevant or offensive tweet) while the player may decide to remove that score entry (e.g. the tweet) from consideration altogether.
Rise only exercises a right to the data collected in order to provide its service to both managers and players through the Rise.global site and associated applications. Rise may use de-identified or derived data for marketing purposes for example to report the number of users accessing the platform.
At any time you may close your Rise account by clicking on the Deactivate my account link at the bottom of your Rise profile.
When you close your account we will:
Note that previous releases of leaderboards you have been on will be retained on behalf of the manager (see who owns the data above).
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
