At Leadership Rhode Island, we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our communities, including alumni, class members, and community partners. This privacy policy outlines our practices for the collection, use, and protection of personal information through our text messaging services, which are conducted through organizational phone numbers.

Collection of Information Through SMS

We collect only the names and mobile phone numbers of participants who have opted to receive text messages. No other personal data is collected through our text messaging service.

Use of Information

The information collected will be used exclusively for:

  • Direct communication related to the specific programs participants are involved in.
  • Engaging with community partners and alumni based on their program participation and expressed interests.
  • Facilitating two-way correspondence that supports our community’s engagement and participation in our initiatives.

Audience Segmentation

We segment audiences based on their participation in specific programs, attendance at events, and interests they have communicated to us. This allows us to tailor our communications effectively and ensure relevance.

Opt-Out Policy

Participants can opt out of receiving text messages at any time directly through the text messaging platform. Instructions for opting out will be clearly provided on the onset of the SMS communications.

Data Security

To protect your personal information, we enforce strict security measures, including two-factor authentication on all our databases.

Compliance with 10DLC Requirements

Our text messaging services comply with the regulations of 10-digit long code (10DLC) standards, designed to protect consumers and enhance the quality of application-to-person (A2P) SMS messaging.

No Third-Party Disclosure

We do not share, sell, or disclose your personal information with third parties, ensuring your information is handled with respect and integrity.
