Veteran Supplemental Support Network as a “Nonprofit Business” and a “Service Provider”
California law makes a distinction between organizations that process Personal Data for their own purposes (known as "businesses") and organizations that process Personal Data on behalf of other organizations (known as "service providers"). Depending on the circumstances, Veteran Supplemental Support Network may act as either a not-for-profit business or service provider with respect to your Personal Data. If you have a question or a complaint about how your Personal Data is handled, these should always be directed to the relevant business since they are the ones with primary responsibility for your Personal Data.
For example, if you create an account with us to organize your events, Veteran Supplemental Support Network will be a business with respect to the Personal Data that you provide as part of your account. We will also be a business as to the Personal Data that we have obtained about the use of the Applications or Veteran Supplemental Support Network Properties, which could relate to Organizers or Consumers. We use this to conduct research and analysis to help better understand and serve Users of the Services as well as to improve our platform and provide you with more relevant recommendations about events we think may be of interest to you.
However, if you register for an event as a Consumer, we will process your Personal Data to help administer that event on behalf of the Organizer (for example, sending confirmation, promotional and feedback emails, processing payments, etc.) and to help the Organizer target, and understand the success of, their event and event planning (for example, providing event reports, using analytics to gain insights into the effectiveness of various sales channels, etc.). In these circumstances, Veteran Supplemental Support Network merely provides the tools for Organizers; Veteran Supplemental Support Network does not decide what Personal Data to request on registration forms, nor is it responsible for the continued accuracy of any Personal Data provided. Any questions that you may have relating to your Personal Data and your rights under California law should therefore be directed to the Organizer as the business, not to Veteran Supplemental Support Network.
