Your use of the RA Services is also governed by our Terms of Service.
RA is a charitable 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in the United States and the information we collect is governed by U.S. law. By accessing or using the Services or otherwise providing information to us, you consent to the processing and transfer of information in and to the U.S. and other countries.
If you are in the European Economic Area, RA is the data controller of all personal information.
The legal bases for RA’s use of personal information are as follows:
The legal bases applicable to a specific activity depend on the types of personal information used and the contexts in which it is being used.
We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you: create an account; use any RA Service; participate in our courses, projects, internships, or other educational offerings; contact our staff; respond to questionnaires; or otherwise interact with us. The types of information we may collect directly from you vary depending on the RA Service you use, but can include your name, username, profile images, email address, phone number, postal address, state of residence, US work-authorization status, racial identity, age, employment status, links to your coding-related and social media accounts, and answers to survey questions (such as how you heard about us). We also may collect posts, messages, files, assignments, and other information you submit to us or to others in connection with the Services.
We collect information that we create about you and your use of RA Services, including grades or level of progress relating to your performance on our assignments and other evaluations of your academic performance and your suitability for employment, projects, and internships.

With vendors, consultants, potential employers, internship providers, and other service providers who need access to such information to enable us to provide the RA Services;
With our social-benefit partners and sponsors who may be providing financial or other types of support to RA and users of the RA Services;
If you participate in any interactive areas of the RA Services, including our messaging and collaboration tools, the information you provide may be displayed publicly;
In response to a request for information if we believe disclosure is in accordance with any applicable law, regulation, or legal process, or as otherwise required by any applicable law, regulation, or legal process.
If we believe your actions are inconsistent with the spirit or language of our user agreements or policies, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of RA or others;
In connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of assets, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our operations to another entity; and
In any other manner with your consent or at your direction, including if we notify you through the RA Services that the information you provide will be shared in a particular manner and you provide such information.
We may also share aggregated or anonymized information, which cannot reasonably be used to identify you.
We keep your personal information for no longer than necessary for the purposes for which the information is collected and processed. The length of time we retain personal information depends on the purposes for which we collect and use it, or as required to comply with applicable laws, or to establish, exercise, or defend our legal rights.
RA takes reasonable measures to help protect personal information from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
