How do you collect personal information? We collect personal information from you when you provide information directly to us, for example, when you access and use the Platform, contact us, register an account or purchase a subscription.
You may decide to sign-up for an Account with a social media service, such as FaceBook. In connection with such integration, you authorize us to collect certain information that you have provided to the social media service, including your profile information, as well as any information that you make publicly available on or through the social media service. By using these social media services to interact with the Platform, we are not given access to your login credentials, user name, password, or any information you may provide directly to these applications. You are strongly advised to review the privacy policies of any third-party applications you use to interact with the Platform.
We may also collect personal information of third parties that you provide to us or authorize us to collect (“Third Party Data”). You are responsible for obtaining the necessary consent for the collection and use of Third Party Data and for the disclosure of this data to us.
What kind of personal information do you collect? Examples of personal information we collect and use are:
Contact information, such as full name and email address.
Do you automatically collect technical data, and why? Like many websites, we automatically collect technical data when you visit and use our Platform.
Technical Data: When you access and use the Platform, we may automatically collect certain technical information about your visit, including the date, time, browser type, your internet service provider, your IP address, device information (including device identifiers), geo-location information, computer and network performance data, the URL that you are coming from and your navigation history in order to customize and personalize your experience on the Platform, improve the Platform and for statistical research purposes. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. In limited circumstances, we may use IP addresses to help us identify you when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms of Service or to protect our Platform, users or others.
Cookies and similar technologies: We use “cookies”, scripts, pixel tags, web beacons and other similar technologies on certain pages of our Platform. These automatically collect data from a visitor to our Platform and transfer this information to the visitor’s hard drive. Cookies help us recognize repeat visitors, personalize the Platform and communications and tailor content to match particular interests. We also use these technologies to track Platform usage trends and patterns.
You are always free to decline cookies. If you decline “cookies” or delete them from your computer, you will still be able to access our Platform, but you may find that some areas do not work as smoothly as when cookies are enabled on your system.
Do you disclose personal information? The Company does not disclose the personal information that it holds to third parties except in the following circumstances:
Required by Law: We will disclose personal information in our custody when we believe that the disclosure is required by law, including to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us and when we receive a request from law enforcement authorities. The Company will only disclose personal information to law enforcement authorities upon demonstration of lawful authority.
Investigations: We will disclose personal information where it is reasonable for the purposes of investigating a breach of an agreement or a contravention of the law that has been, is being or is about to be committed and it is reasonable to expect that disclosure with the knowledge or consent of the individual would compromise the investigation.
Fraud: We will disclose personal information where it is reasonable for the purposes of preventing, detecting or suppressing fraud and it is reasonable to expect that the disclosure with the knowledge or consent of the individual would compromise the ability to prevent, detect or suppress the fraud.
Business Transaction: We may disclose and share your personal information to explore and/or undertake a corporate transaction, including a merger, acquisition, amalgamation, IPO, reorganization or sale of the Company and/or the Platform. We will enter into an agreement that ensures that your personal information will be used and disclosed solely for the purposes related to the transaction and will be protected by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information.
Do you aggregate personal information?
We may aggregate (i.e. assemble on a basis that does not enable one to personally identify you) the information we collect from you, including any technical data we automatically collect. Aggregated or “de-identified data” means information that does not identify an individual and is no longer considered “personal information”. Aggregated data may be used by us to improve the Platform and for marketing or resale purposes, and may be shared with and used by advertisers and other third parties. We may also use aggregate data to determine what types of products and services are best suited for our users and are requested by our users. If we share aggregated data with third parties, personal information will not be individually identifiable in the aggregated data.
Do you transfer personal information?
The Company may transfer personal information to a third-party service provider outside of your jurisdiction of residence. In the event that your personal information is transferred abroad, the government, courts, law enforcement or regulatory agencies of that jurisdiction may be able to obtain disclosure of the data through the laws of that jurisdiction.
How do you secure and store personal information?
The Company is committed to data security and protects personal information through integrated physical, technological and administrative safeguards. In particular,
Personal information is protected by security safeguards appropriate to the level of sensitivity of the data through (i) physical measures, such as secure areas; (ii) technical measures, such as encryption and secure servers; and (iii) organizational measures such as access policies based on the need-to-know and employee security through vetting and supervision.
Personal information is retained only for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or transferred.
It is important to understand that we will undertake every reasonable precaution to safeguard your personal information. However, if a data breach occurs, we will notify you as soon as feasible and will comply with all legal requirements to mitigate any harms resulting from such a breach.>
