Such non-public personal information of a former Participant, parent or legal guardian, donor or educational institution is archived in the Company’s internal records and only accessible to certain personnel upon request.

Refund Policy: In order to contribute to an Apex Fun Run, individuals who donate to an Apex Fun Run (the “Donor”) will be required to provide the Company with information regarding such Donor’s credit card or other payment instrument (“Payment Instrument”). Donors represent and warrant to the Company that such information is true, correct and accurate and that such Donor is authorized to use the applicable Payment Instrument. Donors agree that all donations are final and will not be refunded unless the Company, in its sole discretion, agrees to issue a refund. The Company uses ApexPay, Wepay or Square to bill Donors through their respective Payment Instrument for any donations made, and Donors acknowledge that by contributing a donation to an Apex Fun Run, such Donor agrees to the processing, use, transfer or disclosure of data by ApexPay, Wepay or Square pursuant to the Company’s Terms & Conditions.

Payment Security: When users donate through the Company’s website, all of such user’s payment information, including credit card number and billing address, is transmitted through the Internet using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL technology causes the user’s browser to encrypt such user’s payment information before transmitting it to the Company’s secure server. SSL technology, an industry standard, is designed to prevent someone other than operators of the Company’s website from capturing and viewing users’ personal information. While the Company uses industry standard means to protect its website and users’ information, the Internet is not 100% secure. The measures the Company uses are appropriate for the type of information the Company collects. The Company cannot promise that users’ use of the Company’s website will be completely safe. The Company encourages users to use caution when using the Internet.

Information Security: We consider the protection of sensitive information to be a sound business practice, and to that end we employ physical, electronic and procedural safeguards, which seek to protect your non- public personal information in our possession or under our control. Participants, their parents or
legal guardians, donors and educational institutions have the right to review any non-public personal information we have of such person or entity. Participants, s, their parents or legal guardians, donors and educational institutions may submit a written request by email to to remove such person’s or entity’s non-public personal information from our records and to terminate the Company’s further use of such person’s or entity’s non-public personal information, unless such person or entity provides its personal information at a later date after submitting such request.

The examples contained within this notice are illustrations only and are not intended to be exclusive. This notice is intended to comply with the privacy provisions of applicable U.S. federal law and certain privacy provisions of other laws.
