Privacy Policy

The Rockland Youth Empowerment Center (the “RYE Center,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) respects your privacy and values the trust you have placed in us. This Privacy Policy describes the ways in which the RYE Center collects, uses, and discloses information about you in the course of operating our website at (the “Website”).

Reasons the RYE Center Collects Personal Information

We collect and use information about you to communicate with you about our services, promotions, programs and events.  We also collect information to improve your website experience, enable you to make donations to the RYE Center, and enable you to stay informed on current events.

Information the RYE Center Collects and How the Information May be Used

Online Enrollment:  When you register online to participate in the RYE Center, you give us your name, email address and phone number.  If you are under the age of 18, we ask you to have a parent or guardian enroll you.

Register for Our Newsletter: When you ask us to send you our newsletter, you provide us with your email address so we can fulfill your request.

Contact Us Link: If you contact us via our website, we may ask you for information such as your name, address, and email address so we can respond to your questions or comments.

Cookies and Other Technologies:  Like many organizations, we use cookies on our website.  Cookies are small text files that websites often store on the computer hard drives of visitors to their sites. We use cookies to enhance the online experience of our visitors and to better understand how our site is used.    If you do not want us to collect information through the use of cookies, you can set your web browser to reject cookies from this Website. Each browser is different, so you should check your browser’s “Help” menu to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

Donation: You provide contact information and credit card or other payment information so we can process your donations.  When you input your credit card or other payment information through the Site, it is not collected by us, but rather by a vendor, Give Lively, that processes payments on our behalf. This information is used to process your donation, to update our donation records, and to customize our communications with you.

If you wish, you can create an account with Give Lively to access saved payment methods, track donations, and manage your donation settings.

Providing You with Services: We maintain information you provide to us in our database to provide you with the information, goods or services you have requested.

When the RYE Center Discloses Your Information

We take your privacy very seriously.

We share information you have provided us with service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf.  We also may disclose information about you to other members of the RYE Center family (such as our National Organization) for internal administrative purposes or the purposes described in this privacy policy.

We may also share personal information with  service providers, advisors, potential transactional partners, or other third parties in connection with the consideration, negotiation, or completion of a corporate transaction in which we are acquired by or merged with another organization or we sell, liquidate, or transfer all or a portion of our assets.

We also reserve the right to disclose your personal information we collect from you as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or other legal process, or to comply with government reporting obligations, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary (a) to protect our rights, the integrity of this website or the RYE Center, or your safety or the safety of others, or (b) to detect, prevent, or respond to fraud, intellectual property infringement, violations of our policies, violations of law, or other misuse of this website or the RYE Center.
