If you are a Mentor user, we may also use your Information in the following ways:
If you indicate to us that you are interested in a particular mentoring opportunity and provide us with your Information using the Services, we may forward your Information to a Partner so that the Partner can contact you regarding your potential involvement, and, if the particular Partner has a regional or national office or is closely affiliated with or a member of a related Partner (each, an “Affiliate”), then we may also share your Information with the applicable Affiliate. Each such Partner and Affiliate, however, has its own policies regarding collection and use of personal information and we are not responsible for their use of your Information.

Partners who receive email addresses from potential mentor signups are strongly encouraged to adopt privacy standards at least as protective of Information as those standards of MentorPrize (but in each case, you must comply with all applicable privacy laws and regulations). Inappropriate use of personal information received from MentorPrize may jeopardize your partnership relationship with MentorPrize. MentorPrize reserves the right to determine, in its sole discretion, what constitutes inappropriate use of this information and to terminate Partner access to the Services for such misuse.
