RC uses your PII for the purposes for which you provided it, including enabling us to conduct research as described on the Site. We may keep your PII on file and use it to contact you in conjunction with your participation in the Community. RC may share your PII with RC affiliates and its third party Community management partner, Soapbox Sample, in order to maintain the Site and the Community. SoapBox Sample may use your PII to fulfill its obligations to you in connection with your participation in the Community. RC may share data collected from the Community, including your PII, on an aggregated basis with RC clients or prospective clients.
Your privacy is extremely important to us.

- RC may disclose your PII if, in connection with submitting the information, you consent to such disclosure;
- If RC merges with or sells substantially all of its assets or a majority of its equity to a third party, PII collected by RC may be disclosed to the merged entity or third party.
Under no circumstances will RC sell your PII to a third party for any reason.
