Your privacy is important to us. We at Project 5K love privacy as much as you do, and we only collect the information necessary for our operations.


By accessing and/or using the Project 5K website or newsletter, you agree to and understand the following:

Information Logging

Similar to every other website in the world, we collect non-personally-identifying information made available to us by your browser through Google Analytics and CloudFlare. This information is collected to help us better understand how our visitors use our website.

Additionally, we collect personally-identifying information when you sign up for an event through our website or create an account/subscribe to our newsletter. For example, we ask that you provide your name and email address when you create an account on our website or subscribe to our newsletter. This is so we can contact you later on regarding events and activities that you have either joined or may be interested in.

Release of Aggregate Statistics

Project 5K may publish non-personally-identifying aggregate statistics publicly or otherwise. For example, we may publish the number of volunteers who have signed up through our service through our social media channels.

Protection and Release of Personally-Identifying Information

Project 5K takes your personal information seriously. We disclose your personal information on a need-to-know basis to our executive members and event organizers. This is so that we may coordinate your attendance and activates at an event with you and the event organizer. By signing up for an event through our website, you agree that we may release your personal information to the previously listed parties as well as any other parties that may require your information in order for you to attend the event. We will not disclose your personal information to parties who have no relation to your attendance at our events, and we will never sell your information to any party.

The only exception to the aforementioned personal information policy is for legal purposes. If we receive a court order to release your information for any reason to any party, we will have to comply and do so.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on your computer, and that your browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. We uses cookies to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of our website, and their website access preferences. If you do not wish to have cookies placed on your computer(s) you should set your browser(s) to refuse cookies before using our website, with the drawback that certain features of our website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Updates to our Privacy Policy

Project 5K reserves the right to change the privacy policy at any time at our discretion. While most of these changes will likely be minor adjustments, we ask that you frequently check back and see if there are any changes. We maintain a date at the top of all our policies indicating when they were last changed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to shoot us an email over on our contact page. Happy volunteering!
