We give notice of all Personal Information Collection.
RTi will give notice when Personal Information is collected or when any collected information is later to be provided to third parties. All notices will explain the need for the information and describe how the information will be used. Personal Information will not be used to directly market any products or services to identifiable persons unless that possibility has been disclosed in advance and the opportunity not to participate has been given.
We explain the consequences of collecting and processing.
RTi will state the consequences of any decision by individuals not to provide Personal Information requested by RTi.
We process and distribute information consistent with notice.
RTi will collect and use Personal Information consistently with the notices that have been provided. However, RTi may decide to remove identifiable features from collected Personal Information and the resulting information may then be used for statistical, historic, scientific or other purposes, consistent with applicable law.
We get explicit consent for sensitive information/opt-in.
RTi will maintain procedures to assure that sensitive information is only collected with explicit consent and is protected against improper use, consistent with applicable law.
We require others who process RTi data to comply with the RTi policy.

We provide information security.
RTi will maintain the security of Personal Information and protect the integrity of such information, with a commercially reasonable degree of care.
Personal Information collected is relevant for the purpose for which it is to be used and, to the extent necessary, RTi takes reasonable steps to ensure data is reliable for intended use, and that it is accurate, complete and current.
We provide individuals a way to access, correct, or remove their information.
RTi will maintain procedures consistent with applicable law for individuals to gain access to their collected Personal Information and, when appropriate, correct any information that is inaccurate or incomplete, change their individual consent level, or have their Personal Information deleted. RTi will also maintain procedures consistent with applicable law allowing individuals to opt-out of their collected Personal Information being shared with 3rd parties and for uses incompatible with the original purpose.
We provide a way to verify compliance and process complaints.
RTi will publish the procedures for verifying compliance and responding to complaints regarding potential deviations from its established procedures for protecting Personal Information.
