Our Commitment to Ethical Data Use
We value your privacy and want to make sure your experience with Rubicon websites, mobile applications, and event registrations are as safe as possible. Therefore, we established this privacy statement to explain what personal information Rubicon collects from you from when you visit our website, why we collect it, and how we use that data.
First of note, we collect and store data to communicate with our customers more effectively, and to optimize the experience of our customers with our website content, products, and services.
Rubicon does not sell your personal data. Rubicon may provide your personal data to third party agents (an onward transfer), who act on our behalf, and enable us to service your account effectively. These agents are required to maintain the same level of privacy protection and compliance as Rubicon. Rubicon will take reasonable steps to ensure these agents handle personal data for limited time and purpose, and act consistently with Rubicon’s data privacy commitments and legal obligations. Rubicon may be liable if our agent fails to meet these obligations, and we are responsible for an event that resulted in damages.
By submitting your email address to access content resources on Rubicon.com, you agree to receive communications and content from Rubicon related to your subscription request.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Whether you are a small independent school, or a large urban district, you’ve likely heard of GDPR. The General Data Protection Regulation, known as GDPR, was approved by the European Union in April 2016 and goes into effect on May 25, 2018. To date, it is the most sweeping legislation in the last two decades focused on data security and privacy, and significantly updates and enhances data protection legislation across the EU/EEA.

Rubicon is committed to data privacy and welcomes the new regulation. We’ll explain more of how we meet the GDPR regulations below.
Change of Ownership
In the event of a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or sale of assets to, another entity, we reserve the right to transfer all of your personal Information, including names, email addresses, and phone numbers, to that entity. We will use reasonable efforts to notify users of such a transfer (by a posting on our homepage, or by email to your email address that you provided to us, as chosen by us in our discretion).
Updating or Removing Information and Unsubscribing
You may, at any time, choose to correct or update the information you have submitted to Rubicon by updating your account on our website or in the product purchased. If you cancel your account, your personal data and other information may be retained in our archive or backup records. Regarding communications sent from Rubicon, you can opt out or unsubscribe from our emails and notifications at any time.
Rubicon may provide links to Web pages which are not part of the Rubicon Web family, or the Rubicon.com domain. These sites are not under Rubicon control, and Rubicon is not responsible for the information or links you may find there. Rubicon is providing these links only as a convenience. The presence of these links on any Rubicon website is not intended to imply Rubicon endorsement of that site, but to provide a convenient link to relevant sites which are managed by other organizations, companies, or individuals.
Rubicon follows necessary technical and physical procedures to protect information stored in our servers, which are located in the United States at our Portland, Oregon headquarters. Security safeguards may include but are not limited to data encryption, firewalls, access limitations, and physical access controls to buildings.

European Union Data Protection
Rubicon complies with the U.S.-EU Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries. Rubicon has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles.
Under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield, the independent dispute resolution body designated to address complaints and provide appropriate recourse free of charge to the individual is the TRUSTe Privacy Dispute Resolution.
Under certain conditions, an individual may invoke binding arbitration to resolve a complaint that has not been satisfied by other Privacy Shield mechanisms. Please review Annex I: Section C at https://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=ANNEX-I-introduction for details.
With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Framework, Rubicon is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. In certain situations, Rubicon may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
