We may obtain your personal information from a number of sources including:
We may collect, store, and otherwise process the following kinds of personal information:
We will also collect certain information automatically every time you interact with our website. We do this through server log files, cookies, and pixel tags. While the information obtained may not be personal information under the laws of the country you are based in, we recognize that there are certain laws where this information is likely to be personal information.For instance, we identify and log the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the device you use to access our website automatically in our server log files whenever you visit our website, along with the time of your visit and pages you visit. While the intention of such a practice is to calculate website usage levels and to help us diagnose problems with the website’s servers, we recognize that an IP address is also an online identifier which can be used to create profiles of individuals behind devices. Thus, if we combine non-personal information with personal information, we will treat the combined information as personal information as long as it is combined.
Certain countries have laws that recognize particular types of personal information as more sensitive and therefore requiring greater protection. We collect these types of personal information in limited circumstances. We may collect personal information, for instance, about criminal convictions and offenses. Paradigm Initiative may collect sensitive information if there is a valid reason to do so with the consent of the individual. If any such information is collected, PIN will be responsible for keeping the information confidential unless called upon to disclose the information under a warrant issued by a court of law.
We will only collect and use this sensitive information if there is a valid reason for doing so and where the law allows us to. For instance, there are stricter rules about the collection and use of sensitive information where some laws apply. When we collect sensitive information or criminal conviction data about you and we are required to tell you what our lawful basis is for doing so, we will set this out.
PIN will use your personal information:
