The use of information collected through our service shall be limited to the purpose of providing the service for which the Client has engaged Uprising Technology, Inc. While Uprising’s websites or other materials may

If you have questions or complaints regarding our privacy policy or practices, please contact us at

Your Consent

You should read this entire Privacy Policy before submitting information to Uprising or using any Uprising website. Whenever you submit information via a Uprising website or otherwise to Uprising, whether online or offline, you
consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

What Information Does the Uprising Service Collect and Process for Organizational Clients?

When operating as a data processor for our clients the following will apply to our Service. Uprising will process directory information about Client constituents that falls within the definition of “Directory Information” in accordance with the Family Educational Rights Privacy Act (FERPA) including:

  • Name
  • Address (local, permanent residence and electronic mail)
  • Telephone number
  • Class level (semester class or level: first­year, sophomore, junior, senior, etc.)
  • Major
  • Student activities
  • Dates of attendance
  • Enrollment status (full­time, part­time, or not enrolled)
  • Date of graduation
  • Degrees and awards received and where received
  • Most recent educational institution attended

We may also collect and process online information on behalf of our Organizational Clients including:

  • Links to the online location of publicly accessible constituent information
  • Links to the online location of approved private online profile information
  • Employment history and professional or personal skills and interests made publicly available or specifically authorized for sharing with the Client

We use this information to:

  • Allow clients to use our Service to search and view data on constituents through a single interface and on
    mobile devices
  • Help client organizations maintain current internal records on constituents
  • Identity trending areas of interest among constituents

Uprising collects information under the direction of its clients, and has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes. Uprising works with its clients to help them provide notice to their customers concerning the purpose for which personal information is collected.

Access to Data Controlled by Our Organizational Clients

Uprising has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes on behalf of a client organization. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data should
make the appropriate changes or deletions through the client administrator (the data controller). If the Client requests Uprising remove the data, we will respond to their request within 30 business days.

Each Organizational client controls which constituent records exist within the Service. Personal information on students who have elected to not have their directory information disclosed should not be loaded to the Service if it will be used by individuals other than authorized school officials with legitimate educational interest. We will retain personal data we process on behalf of our customers for as long as needed to provide services to our customers. Uprising will retain and use this personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Each Uprising Organizational Client retains its own Virtual Private Cloud environment. No personally identifiable information on Client constituents is shared between clients or used directly by Uprising for purposes other than to provide the Service to the Client as defined in the license agreement and Client Subscription Terms and Conditions.


Uprising takes appropriate steps to protect personal data from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction, whether in transmission or storage. When you enter sensitive information on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Please keep in mind, however, that there is no such thing as perfect security, and no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or erro r­free. Moreover, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any username and passwords.

Information Collection and Use on the Uprising Web Site

Uprising may collect personal data from our customers both online and offline. In many cases, such information will be collected directly from you, such as through a transaction or inquiry, or your submission of a form, registration, or
communication to us. Information may also be gathered from third­party sources (including without limitation, opt­in lists, publicly available data, consumer reporting agencies, other companies, and referrals) and through your activities and interactions with us. We may combine data collected from these disparate sources unless we tell you otherwise. Uprising collects personal data about its customers in a number of ways. In this section, we describe what types of personal data we collect, the ways we collect it, and how we use it. While we have tried to be complete, this list is not necessarily exhaustive, given that these activities can vary from time to time. The types of personal data typically collected by Uprising may include the following, depending on your activities:

  • Contact information, including name, title, street address (home, work), postal code, country, telephone
    numbers (home, work, cell, etc.), email address (home, work), company name, and other similar information.
  • Personal/demographic information, including gender, level of education and the like.
  • Authentication information, including user IDs, log­in names, passwords, password reminders, etc. (in
    addition to other personal data such as contact information and the like).
  • Transactional information, including products or services you inquire about, or request
  • User content, including information provided when you use one of our online services, forums or other online means of communications, and all other user submissions and content you provide.

Additional Information

As you use our websites or services, some information can be “passively” collected using various technologies, such as cookies, web beacons, and navigational data collection (clickstream, log files, server logs, etc.). Your Internet browser automatically transmits some of this information, such as the URL of the website you just visited and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and browser version currently being used by your computer. Such technologies help us to keep track of your interactions with our websites and services, and provide you with a more customized experience, and may include referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. As is the case with many websites, Uprising websites and services may use cookies and other automated information collection means. Cookies are information about you from the website that is stored on your browser or hard drive. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. Cookies save you time because you do not need to manually re­enter the information stored on your hard drive. Cookies also help us upgrade the website by showing when and how users use the website. You can set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent or refuse cookies altogether, but certain features of Uprising websites might not work without cookies. The use of cookies by our service providers are not covered by our privacy statement. We do not have access or control over these cookies. Uprising websites and services may also use IP addresses for the same purposes identified above, as well as to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movements, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use and to confirm that a particular individual affirmed his/her consent to specific legal terms (e.g. our clickwrap license agreement). We may use web beacons (also known as Internet tags or clear GIFs) on our websites and services to access and set cookies and otherwise help us to better understand how users are utilizing our websites. Information provided by the web beacon includes the computer’s IP address, the type of browser being used, and the time that the web beacon was viewed. We may also use web beacons in emails and newsletters so that we know when such communications have been opened and to otherwise help us tailor our communications to individual users. Finally, we also monitor the performance of our services and our websites in order to manage, maintain, and improve our services and websites. We (or our third party providers) may use tools to help prevent and block “spam” communications, viruses, spyware, and other harmful or unwanted communications and programs on the website. These tools may automatically scan any content you upload through the websites (or using functionality available via the websites) in order to help us protect you and the website against these harmful or unwanted communications and programs. However, these tools do not collect or disclose personally identifiable information about you. Uprising uses personal data about customers for a wide range of purposes. We use it to respond to your requests (including requests for newsletter subscriptions, materials, support, and so on); to provide products or services that you have ordered; to process your order transactions and contact you regarding your order; to provide materials you have requested; to invite and help you participate in a range of online and offline events, and/or activities; to allow you to post information and other content online (including in response to other postings); to improve our products, services, and websites; to follow up with you after you have communicated with us or submitted information to us; to send promotional communications or offers (unless you have requested that we not send such communications); for marketing and research purposes; for internaland/or external training, qualityassurance, and other purposes (including without limitation, call centerrecordings); to allow you to contact anotherperson; for legal and contractual reasons; to address your interests andconcerns; and as otherwise specified in thisPrivacy Policy and/or at the point of personal data collection. Here are some additional details on our use of the data
we collect:

  • Registration (memberships, accounts (i.e., log­ins and passwords, etc.)) and participation in online communities/provision of user­generated content. Customers may be given an opportunity to register for a variety of reasons, including to receive promotional communications/offers; to join/participate in an online community, blog, or other interactive areas or to otherwise provide user generated content (such as posting favorite photos/videos/audio recordings, providing testimonials, sharing experiences about Uprising products, etc.); to attend an event (e.g., a conference); and so on. Such activities may entail collection of name, title, contact information, birth date, username and password, email address, experiences with Uprising products, and personal information/preferences related to the subject matter of the particular activity. In some cases, you will select a user ID and password when you register, and you will use this to gain access to certain registration­restricted areas. Note that using a Uprising website as a registered user enables information that is passively collected as you navigate the website to be associated with personal data actively collected from you on the website. To request removal of your personal information from our blog or community forum, contact us at .
  • To contact us with questions, comment, or concerns. We provide a number of ways for you to contact us to ask questions, provide comments, or share concerns. This may occur, for example, via the “contact us” sections on Uprising websites, or postal mail. Depending on the circumstances, we may collect your name, title, contact information, message type, case number (if tied to a previous issue), comments, and other types of data relevant to the specific situation (e.g., product involved, use of the product, any problems with the product, and the like).
  • To provide materials you request. Uprising may collect and use contact name, title, contact information, demographic information, preferences, and other information relevant to responding to your request.
  • For marketing purposes (unless you have told us otherwise). We may use your contact information to tell you about our products and services that we believe might be of interest. If at any time you do not want communications for promotional purposes, please let us know.

This list is for illustrative purposes only and should not be considered exhaustive. We do not sell your personal information to third parties. We may disclose personal data you provide to partners and to consultants, service providers, and contractors that we use to support our business and operations (e.g., delivery services, financial institutions, fulfillment services, technical support, advertising, public relations, media and marketing services, legal
services, call­in centers, e­commerce and other web­related services such as web hosting and web monitoring services, and event­related services such as online and offline data capture services) who have agreed to keep the information confidential and use it only to provide the applicable service(s). In some cases, we work with other companies who help to gather information from you or help us to communicate with you. We may also disclose personal data to third parties (including without limitation, governmental agencies) if required to do so by law, regulation, or court order; to respond to governmental and/or law enforcement requests; to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interfering with our (or others’) rights or property; to support any claim, defense, or declaration in a case or before any jurisdictional and/or administrative authority, arbitration, or mediation panel; or in connection with disciplinary actions/investigations. Likewise, we may disclose personal data to third parties in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of Uprising, its business or the website to which such data applies. In the event that Uprising goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company or sale of a portion of its assets, our customers’ personal information may be part of the assets transferred. Customers will be notified via prominent notice on our website prior to a change of ownership or control of their personal information. If, as a result of the business transaction, your personally identifiable information will be used in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection, you will be notified consistent with our Privacy Policy. The recipients of customers’ personal data, and more generally these disclosures, may be located in the United States or other jurisdictions that might not provide a level of protection equivalent to the laws in your jurisdiction. By submitting personal data to Uprising, you consent to the transfer of such personal data outside your jurisdiction. We may make full use of all information that is de identified or otherwise not in personally identifiable form, including without limitation, user­generated content. We will not, however, make use of any content or data you upload that you or your organization has created through the use of our fee­based licensed products and services. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at .

Contact Preferences

We want to keep in touch with you in ways that you find to be beneficial. By submitting personal contact information, you are agreeing that we may communicate with you via email, telephone, direct mail, and/or other means of
communication. If you don’t want us to use your contact information for promotional purposes (such as to tell you about other products and services that might be of interest), please tell us that when you provide your contact information. Keep in mind that these preferences regarding promotional contacts do not mean that we might not contact you for other reasons, such as those related to an order you placed, an inquiry you made, a newsletter to which you may have subscribed (unless you have unsubscribed), a membership you undertook, an event for which you registered, a legally required notice, and so on.


We may post customer testimonials/comments/reviews on our web site which may contain personally identifiable information. We do obtain the customer’s consent via email prior to posting the testimonial to post their name along
