This Privacy Notice (“Notice”) applies only to the website www.rethinkfirst.com (the “Site”). This Notice describes how personal information collected on the Site is sourced, used, disclosed to others, secured, and eventually disposed of (collectively “processed”). Personal information is any information that does, or could, identify you.
The Site is operated by Rethink Autism, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries and affiliates (“Rethink”, “we”, “us”, “our”). In this Notice, “you” means a visitor to, or user of, the Site. The Site is not intended for visitors under 18 years of age.
Rethink is the “controller” (or equivalent term under privacy law) of all personal information collected on the Site.
We will update this Notice from time to time and will communicate any material changes to you through an appropriate channel (for example, via a notice on the Site). This Notice was last updated on November 15th, 2022.
We collect personal information directly from you, for example, your name, work email address, phone number, job title, and organization on our Contact Us form (plus any personal information you choose to include in the text section of the form).
We will also collect personal information by observing your activity on our Site via, for example, cookies, other standard online technologies and our monitoring and recording of your usage of the Site. Such information may include, for example, your IP address, imprecise geolocation, and which pages you visit and how long you stay on them. When required by local law, we obtain your consent to place any cookies on your device that are not strictly necessary for our Site to function, for example analytics or marketing cookies.
Rethink will never (1) sell your personal information, nor (2) share your personal information with third parties for cross-context behavioral advertising.
We may use your personal information for the following purposes:
The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires that we provide EU individuals with our legal bases for processing their personal data. A similar requirement applies in some other jurisdictions. Our legal bases depend on the purpose of processing:

Section 9 of this Notice below describes your rights to request deletion of your data outside of our normal data retention schedule.

US privacy laws may be different from those of your own country. If you reside in the EU, European Economic Area, or UK, note that the European Commission has not issued an “adequacy decision” for the US. As set out in this Notice, we strive to protect your data and your rights regardless of any international transfer.
