Here Is How We Gather Personal Data:
We collect Personal Data about you from a few different sources.
For our Services, the main way we obtain your Personal Data is directly from you! As a user of our Services, you will be required to provide Personal Data directly to us, and while you use our Services, we may also obtain additional Personal Data as necessary to Provide the Services (including any future services) and to be compliant with applicable laws and regulations.
From time to time, companies that we don’t own or control, or people we don’t directly oversee (“Third Parties”), may provide us with Personal Data about you. As an example, we may use analytics service providers to help us understand how you use our Services, or third parties may help us provide you with ancillary services that we do not directly provide.
We Automatically Collect Certain Information
You can decide whether to accept Cookies through settings on your browser. You can also delete Cookies already on your device. If you do this some of your preferences may have to be adjusted when you visit the Site and use our Services (it is possible that some of functions may not work until you allow Cookies).
If this kind of stuff interests you, then you are in luck! Take a look at AllAboutCookies to find – well – All About Cookies!
This is the kind of Personal Data We Collect
Information that Identifies You Personally – Like your full name, mail, billing and email addresses, online identifiers or usernames, Internet Protocol (IP) address, and any number used in your jurisdiction that identifies you for taxation purposes (used only to help us identify you and make sure that you are properly taxed when it comes to earned compensation). This information may include customer and user records identified by applicable law – Like your full name, signature, taxation number (see above), bank account, digital wallet, and credit card numbers. These may be controlled by local laws in your jurisdiction.
Internet Activity Information – Like your internet browsing and search history, or information on your interaction with a website or application.
Overall, we try to collect information that we believe is necessary to make the Site render and work well for you, and to make your use of the Services faster, easier, and more intuitive, and to improve and expand our Services. Without much of this information, the Services simply will not be possible, and for the others, it will make improving the Services difficult or more costly.
How We Use Your Personal Data
Nearly all of the Personal Data that we collect is used to manage, improve, understand and personalize our Services. We use the Personal Data to:
Accomplish a purpose (when you when Personal Data to us for a particular purpose), such as when we provide our Services to you and respond to your requests;
Communicate with you about the Services based on your preferences and send you confirmation emails and promotional offers or email you about your use of the Services;
Offer and provide support for the Services;
Personalize the content on our Site;
Fulfill requests and respond to questions about the Site and Service;
Better test, research, analyze and develop the Service and to over new Services and to make the Site better;
Deter and stop illegal, fraudulent, and other damaging actions and better maintain the safety, security and integrity of the Site and our Services;
Interact with governmental and law enforcement requests and as required by applicable law, court order, or governmental regulations; and
Perform other business functions that we noted when we collected your Personal Data, and as is set forth in applicable data privacy laws that govern the use of such Personal Data.
We may need to use your previously-collected Personal Data for a new purpose that is consistent with our Services and their evolution. When this happens, we will do our best to inform you of such use before we start.
If you do not want to receive communications from us, please use the opt-out that is provided in the email or otherwise indicate your preference by emailing us at: email@example.com. But please note that as long as you use our Services, there may be some communications that you cannot opt out of. For instance, if you invest in the digital shares of a particular company and the company takes a shareholder vote, that company may use the Services to provide you with the legally required notice of that shareholder vote. Or if you earn compensation from the sale of any digital shares, we will have to use your Personal Data to report any taxable compensation you received from that sale.
How We Share Your Personal Data
We are not in the business of sharing your Personal Data for monetary gain. We do need to perform and improve our Services and that does require us to share your Personal Data to make that possible. We may share your Personal Data with companies and services like:
1. Payment processors, Security providers, Technology/Hosting services, Analytics providers, Auditors, and others that help us maintain compliance and security (detecting security issues and fraud, and protecting against illegal or other improper activity);
2. Those undertaking internal research for technological development and demonstration;
3. Those that debug and help us identify and repair errors on the Site or the Services;
4. Those that need the Personal Data for a short period of time to build a consumer profile. Where additional consent is required, you will be asked to provide it through a separate consent;
5. Those providing customer care, order processing or fulfillment services, or advertising and marketing services; and
6. Government, law enforcement, or administrative bodies that require us to provide them with certain information as required by law or regulations.
Others may access to your Personal Data if you post that information publicly or as needed to complete a transaction initiated or authorized by you when you use our Services, or to any of our third-party business partners who you access through our Services. If this happens, their privacy and other policies will control the use of that information and not us.
While we hope this never happens, your Personal Data may be acquired through a corporate acquisition like a merger, bankruptcy or asset sale.
Data Security and Retention
We employ a number of technical, organizational and physical safeguards designed to protect the Personal Data we collect. However, security risk is inherent in all internet and information technologies and we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.
Personal Data Use/Storage
Your Personal Data may be used, hosted or otherwise processed outside of your home jurisdiction in a jurisdiction(s) that may not provide equivalent levels of protection for personal information, including the United States. You must consent to this use and storage in order to use our Services.
Personal Data of Children
We do not offer our Services to children so we do not knowingly collect or solicit Personal Data from children under 18; if you under 18 years of age, please do not attempt to register for or otherwise use the Services or send us any Personal Data. If we discover that we have any Personal Data from a child under 18, we will delete it as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 18 may have given us any Personal Data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Privacy Rights In Certain Jurisdictions
Certain jurisdictions have enacted laws to protect and empower consumers with respect to their data and Personal Data. You may have additional rights regarding the Personal Data we collect and use based on your residency. This area of law is evolving – if you would like to know what laws your state has enacted (or is considering), there are many resources available, such as those found on the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development
