Privacy Policy

Collecting Information

  1. What Types of Information Does the Resolution Project Collect From Me? Resolution Project gathers two basic types of information through the Site: “Personally Identifiable Information” (or “PII”) and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” (or “Non-PII”). Personally Identifiable Information is information that identifies you as an individual; that is, your name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address, profile information and user name. Non-Personally Identifiable Information is aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses and any other information that does not reveal specific identifying information about you.
    1. Personally Identifiable Information. In order for you to take advantage of particular opportunities provided through the site (for example, to register to use the site for posting), we may require that you furnish PII. We collect PII from you only when you voluntarily provide it to us.
    2. Non-Personally Identifiable Information. When you visit and interact with the Site, the Resolution Project and third parties with whom the Resolution Project has contracted to provide services to the Resolution Project may collect Non-PII (for example, a catalog of the Site pages you visit). Non-PII is generally collected from four different sources: server log files, cookies, pixel tags and aggregated information.
      1. Server Log Files. Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is an identifying number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you visit the Site, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) that you visit. IP addresses can be used to calculate Site usage levels, to help diagnose problems with the Site’s servers, and to administer the Site. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many web sites.
      2. Cookies. We and our service providers may use “cookies” on the Site. Cookies are data that a web server transfers to an individual’s computer for recordkeeping purposes. Cookies are an industry standard used by most web sites, and can facilitate users’ ongoing access to and use of a particular web site. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer systems or files. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline cookies, or to be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer of a particular cookie, or cookies from a particular web site, to your computer.
      3. Aggregated Information. We may aggregate PII in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site, for example, by using PII to calculate the percentage of our users who have a particular telephone area code. Such aggregate information is considered Non-PII for purposes of this Policy.
  2. How Is Information Collected on the Site Used?
    1. Personally Identifiable Information. The Resolution Project may use your PII in the following ways:
      1. Fulfillment of Requests. We use your PII to fulfill any request you make at the time you provide the PII.
      2. Administrative Communications. From time to time, in our sole discretion, we may use your PII to e-mail to you important information regarding the Site, or changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information may be important to your use of the Site, you may not opt-out of receiving these e-mails.
      3. Forums. The Resolution Project and/or our third party service provider(s) may make available through the Site interactive services (including without limitation, message boards, blogs and wikis) to which you are able to post information and materials (each, a “Forum”). Please note that any information you disclose in a Forum becomes public information, and may be available to other visitors to the Site and to the general public. In addition, when you choose to make a posting to a Forum, certain PII, such as your name, will be available for other users to view. Information regarding your activities in Forums is also available for view by other users. For example, other users may be able to view a list of all the postings you have made in all available Forums. We urge you to exercise discretion and caution when deciding to disclose your PII, or any other information, in any Forum. THE RESOLUTION PROJECT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE BY OTHERS OF THE INFORMATION THAT YOU DISCLOSE IN FORUMS.
    2. Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Because Non-PII does not personally identify you, we (including our affiliates) may use such information for any purpose. In addition, we reserve the right to share such Non_PII, which does not personally identify you, with third parties, for any purpose. Please note that to the extent any Non-PII is linked with PII, such linked information will be treated as PII as long as it is so linked.
  3. How Does The Resolution Project Disclose Personally Identifiable Information Collected Through the Site?
    1. Third Party Service Providers. We work with third parties who provide services including but not limited to web site hosting, data analysis and other services of an administrative nature. We reserve the right to share your PII with these third parties solely for the purpose of enabling these third parties to provide such services.
    2. Assignment. We reserve the right to transfer any and all PII that we collect from users of the Site to a third party in the event of any sale, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of the Resolution Project’s assets.
    3. Law enforcement, emergencies, compliance. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Policy to the contrary, we reserve the right to disclose your PII as we believe to be appropriate: (a) under applicable law; (b) to comply with legal process or governmental requests; (c) to enforce our Terms of Service; (d) to protect our operations or those of any affiliates; (e) to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of the Resolution Project, its affiliates, you or others; and (f) to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.
  4. Other Important Notes Regarding Our Privacy Practices.
    1. Notice Regarding Security. We seek to have security measures and tools in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as perfect security in an online environment. As a result, we cannot, and do not, guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us through or in connection with the Site or that we store on our or our agents’ systems. Please do not send sensitive information to us via our web site or e-mail. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), you must immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us by e-mail at or by mail at 420 Lexington Avenue, 16th Floor, New York, NY 10170.
    2. Third Party Sites. The Site may contain links to third party web sites. These linked sites are not under the Resolution Project’s control and we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the contents of any such linked site, or any link contained in any linked site. We provide such links only as a convenience, and the inclusion of a link on the Site does not imply endorsement of the linked site by the Resolution Project. If you provide any PII through any such third party web site, your interaction will occur on such third party’s web site (not the Site) and the PII you provide will be collected by, and controlled by the privacy policy of, that third party. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies and practices of any such third parties. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS POLICY DOES NOT ADDRESS THE PRIVACY OR INFORMATION PRACTICES OF ANY THIRD PARTIES.
    3. Transfer. Please be aware that we may transfer any PII we collect through the Site to countries, other than the United States, that may not provide the same level of data protection as the United States. By using the Site, you consent to such transfer of your PII.
    4. Contacting Us. If you have any questions regarding this Policy, please contact us by e-mail at Please note that e-mail communications will not necessarily be secure; accordingly you should not include any sensitive information in your e-mail correspondence with us.
