WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME IS COLLECTED?
In order to apply to join the Collectively community online, we may collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you, which may be your name, address, email address, and blog and social media channel names. Personally identifiable information amounts to ‘personal data’ for the purposes of and as defined in the GDPR. All references to personally identifiable information shall be deemed to include ‘personal data’ as defined and used in the GDPR.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-personally identifiable information is information, any single item of which, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you, including your birthday, ethnicity, gender, IP addresses, browser types, unique device identifiers, device types, requested URL, referring URL, browser language, the date and time of your visit, and statistical data involving the use of the Service. Certain non-personally identifiable information may be considered a part of your personally identifiable information if it were combined with other identifiers.
We will collect personally identifiable information that you submit to us. We may also collect personally identifiable information about you that is available on public websites.
Registering to Use the Service and in the Course of Using the Service.
You will be required to provide certain personally identifiable information in order to participate in the Collectively community. In addition, we may obtain your personally identifiable information from you if you identify yourself to us by sending us an e-mail with questions or comments.
We may collect non-personally identifiable information passively using “cookies”.
You do not have to accept cookies to use the Service. Although most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you may reset your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies generally. Most browsers offer instructions on how to do so in the "Help" section of the toolbar. However, if you reject cookies, certain features or resources of the Service may not work properly or at all and you may experience some loss of convenience.
We also collect non-personally identifiable information through our Internet log files, which record data such as user search queries, IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of the Service. This information may be used to analyze trends, to administer the Service, to monitor the use of the Service, and to gather general demographic information. We may link this information to personally identifiable information for these and other purposes such as personalizing your experience on the Service and evaluating the Service in general.
DOES COLLECTIVELY COLLECT INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE?
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. The Service is not designed for or directed to children under the age of 13. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13 without verifiable parental consent. If you are under the age of 13 you may not apply online; your parent or legal guardian must email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT DOES COLLECTIVELY DO WITH THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS?
We will only use your personally identifiable information to the extent that the law allows us to do so. Pursuant to the GDPR we rely on the following legal bases for processing your personally identifiable information:
where you have given consent to the processing;
where it is necessary to perform the contract we have entered into or are about to enter into with you (whether in relation to the provision of the Service or otherwise); and/or
where it is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not override those legitimate interests.
Unless you opt out, we may subsequently send you electronic newsletters, contact you about the Service and products, services, information and news that may be of interest to you, provide you with marketing materials, and provide you with targeted feedback. If you no longer desire to receive these communications, we will provide you with the option to change your preferences in each communication we send to you. You may also inform us by email to: email@example.com. However, you will not be able to unsubscribe from important Service announcements and updates as they contain important information relevant to your use of the Service and are necessary for the performance of our contract with you.
If you identify yourself to us by sending us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use your information (including personally identifiable information) to respond to your questions or comments, and we may file your questions or comments (with your information) for future reference.
WHEN DOES COLLECTIVELY DISCLOSE INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES?
Laws and Legal Rights.
We may disclose your information (including personally identifiable information) if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, or other valid legal process. We may disclose personally identifiable information in special circumstances when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to detect fraud, or to protect the safety and/or security of our users, the Service or the general public.
Sale of Business.
We may share your personally identifiable information with our brand clients in connection with a potential or actual influencer marketing campaign.
We may share your personally identifiable information with our fulfillment partners in order to send you products in connection with a campaign.
IS THE INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH THE SERVICE SECURE?
Notwithstanding the above, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security or privacy of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
COULD MY INFORMATION BE TRANSFERRED TO OTHER COUNTRIES?
Personally identifiable information collected through the Service may be transferred from time to time to our offices or personnel, or to third parties, located throughout the world, and the Service may be viewed and hosted anywhere in the world, including countries that may not have laws of general applicability regulating the use and transfer of such data. By using the Service and submitting information on or through the Service, you voluntarily consent to the trans-border transfer and hosting of such information. Without limitation of the foregoing, you hereby expressly grant consent to Collectively to:
(b) transfer such information throughout the world, including to the United States or other countries that do not ensure adequate protection for personal information (as determined by the European Commission); and
(c) disclose such information to comply with lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
If you are a user accessing the Service from a jurisdiction with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure that differ from those of the United States, please be advised that all aspects of the Service are governed by the internal laws of the United States and the state of California, USA, regardless of your location. To the extent that we process personally identifiable information of individuals located in the European Economic Area or the United Kingdom we are bound by and act in compliance with the GDPR.
FOR HOW LONG WILL MY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION BE KEPT?
We will only retain your personally identifiable information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personally identifiable information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of that information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure, the purposes for which we process your personally identifiable information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE REGARDING MY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?
Under certain circumstances and in compliance with the GDPR, you have the right to:
Request access to your personally identifiable information (commonly known as a ‘subject access request’). This enables you to receive a copy of the personally identifiable information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it;
Request correction of the personally identifiable information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected;
Request erasure of your personally identifiable information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personally identifiable information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove all of your personally identifiable information in certain circumstances;
Object to processing of your personally identifiable information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground;
Request the restriction of processing of your personally identifiable information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personally identifiable information, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it;
Request the transfer of your personally identifiable information to another party;
Lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority (as defined in the GDPR). If you have any complaints about the way we process your personally identifiable information please do contact us. Alternatively you may lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority which is established in your country.
If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personally identifiable information, object to the processing of your personally identifiable information, or request that we transfer a copy of your personally identifiable information to another party, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Such updates, corrections, changes and deletions will have no effect on other information that we maintain. To protect your privacy and security, we may take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you profile access or making corrections. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times.
You should be aware that it may not be technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our system. The need to back up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. After receiving your request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to update, correct, change, or delete, as appropriate, all personally identifiable information stored in databases we actively use and other readily searchable media as appropriate, as soon as and to the extent reasonably practicable.
DO NOT TRACK
The term “Do Not Track” refers to a HTTP header offered by certain web browsers to request that websites refrain from tracking the user. We take no action in response to Do Not Track requests.
