Last Modified - August 26, 2020

Rotary Corp. (“Rotary”, “us”, “we”, or “our”) knows that you care how information about you is used and shared. As part of our commitment to customer service, Rotary strives to make you feel safe and comfortable doing business with Rotary. Here are some guidelines Rotary follows regarding our collection and use of your information – including possible Personal Information – and our efforts to keep your information private. Rotary reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time in our sole discretion.

This Privacy Policy also informs you about certain choices and rights you have associated with that data, and how you can manage the privacy of your Personal Information.

Information We Collect

Rotary may collect certain information about you in order to provide and improve our services to you.

“Personal Information” means data about a particular individual or household that identifies, relates to, describes, could be reasonably linked with, or could be used to identify that person or household (or from those and other information either in our possession or likely to come into our possession). It may also include other information that may be associated with your Personal Information, such as Generic Information (defined below), location, preferences or interests, if that information can be used to identify you, your household, or your device.

Rotary engages in primarily business-to-business services, and its collection of personal information is minimal to non-existent.

Business Information. Rotary provides business-to-business services to our commercial customers to help them meet their business needs. As such, much of the information that we collect from our customers relate to their business, including their business’ name, address, zip code, telephone number, email address, financial account information to facilitate transactions with Rotary, and other information related to their business. Additionally, Rotary may need to collect information related to an individual’s role within the company to fulfill an order or inquiry with Rotary, such as the individual’s name, title, location, telephone number, email address, other contact information, and other information.

We may also collect location-related information and information related to business purchase and product interest history.

Please note that all payment card information is passed on to our payment processor and is not stored by Rotary.

Personal Information. Rotary does not collect Personal Information. In some instances, Rotary may collect Personal Information, including: your name, address, telephone number, email address, , accounts receivable, and account names. This would be through information you provide us, relating to a business.

Usage Data. We may also collect information on how you access and use our services (“Usage Data”). This Usage Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol address (e.g. IP address), browser type, browser version, the pages of our services that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers, and other diagnostic data. Rotary at times collects IP address, browsing history, geolocation data.

Generic Information. This includes information that does not, by itself, identify you. In some situations, Generic Information may be used or combined in a way that it identifies or reasonably relates to you, your company, or your position within your company. In those situations, such information will be treated like Business Information or Personal Information, as applicable.

At times, the type of Generic Information or Usage Data collected, as well as the combination of various types of data, including Generic information and Usage Data may qualify as Personal Information, and will be treated as Personal Information in those cases.

Updates to this Privacy Policy

From time to time, Rotary may modify this Privacy Policy. The most current version of our Privacy Policy is accessible on our website at all times. In the future, we may need or choose to change this Privacy Policy, and we reserve the right to make changes to our Privacy Policy at any time and at our sole discretion. We will post any changes to our Privacy Policy on this page and note the effective date so that you are always aware of what information we collect and how we use it. If we materially change our practices regarding collection or use of your Personal Information, your Personal Information will continue to be governed by the Privacy Policy under which it was collected unless you have been provided notice, and have not objected to, such change.

Submitting a Verifiable Request to Rotary

As mentioned above, California residents have certain rights to access, delete, or otherwise control the use, collection, and/or disclosure of their information. Rotary will respond to an individual’s “verifiable request” to exercise his or her rights under such laws – that is, where Rotary has received a request purporting to be from a particular individual, and Rotary has been able to verify the individual’s identity. The need to verify an individual’s identity is critical to protecting your information, and ensuring that your information is not shared with anyone pretending to be you or someone who is not authorized to act as your agent on your behalf.

You may submit a verifiable request via our email address, mailing address, or toll-free number, listed in the “Contact Us” section below. Rotary will ask you to provide information about yourself so that we can verify your identity as part of this process. This information may include your name, your address, your account information, and any other information deemed necessary by Rotary to reasonably verify your identity, to ensure that your information is not shared with anyone impersonating you.

We may ask for additional information if we have difficulty confirming your identity. We will not share your information or honor other requests in those situations in which we are unable to confirm a request for your information is a “verifiable request.”

Under California law a consumer can appoint an “authorized agent” to make certain verifiable requests upon their behalf, such as the right to know what information we collect about the consumer or to request deletion of the consumer’s information. Because the security and privacy of your information is paramount, we will ask that you identify and provide permission in writing for such persons to act as your authorized agent and exercise your applicable rights under California law in such situations. This may require us to contact you directly and alert you that an individual has claimed to be your agent and is attempting to access or delete your information. We will also independently verify your identity to ensure that an unauthorized person is not attempting to impersonate you and exercise your rights without authorization. We will not share your information or honor any other requests in those situations where you cannot or do not grant permission in writing for an identified authorized agent to act on your behalf, or where we cannot independently verify your identity.
