Non-Personally Identifiable Information In addition to information you voluntarily provide to us, Collective Bias may collect on behalf of our clients and/or on our own behalf non-personally identifiable information (e.g., Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, device identifiers, “cookies,” browser information, Internet tags, and navigational data). We do not attempt to associate such non-personally identifiable information with PII or with specific individuals.
Sharing, Storage, and Retention of Personally Identifiable Information
Sharing. Collective Bias does not sell or rent PII to third parties, and shares PII with our clients only when the client has been identified to you. Collective Bias does not otherwise disclose your PII to unaffiliated third parties, unless you have consented to such disclosure, Collective Bias in its sole discretion determines disclosure is necessary to protect Collective Bias, its clients, or other users of our websites and services, or such disclosure is required by law. Notwithstanding, Collective Bias does share PII with its corporate affiliates.
Storage. Collective Bias has measures in place to ensure that PII is safeguarded against loss and unauthorized access, use, modification, disclosure or other misuse. Collective Bias stores all PII in a secured environment behind its “firewall.” Only those employees whose job responsibilities require them to use the PII are permitted access to such data. All employees sign confidentiality agreements and are not permitted to disclose any PII.
Retention. Collective Bias will retain your PII for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected and to comply with applicable laws. If you have created a Member account on our website, you may request that the account be disabled, by contacting us via the website: https://socialfabric.us/login. You may also request that your Member account be deactivated, by contacting us via the website. However, if you deactivate your account, it cannot be reinstated.
Sharing and Use of Non-Personally Identifiable Information We use the non-personally identifiable and aggregated information we collect to better understand how visitors to our websites and those of our affiliates engage with the content we are involved with, and to assess, improve, and quantify the response to such content. We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information with our clients and affiliates.
Special Note About Children Unless otherwise specifically indicated, Collective Bias’s programs are not available to anyone under the age of thirteen (13). We do not solicit PII from children, and no one under the age of thirteen (13) should submit PII to us. If we discover that PII submitted to us pertains to a child under the age of thirteen (13), we will delete it.
California Privacy Rights
Rights of Minors. If you are a resident of the State of California and between the ages of thirteen (13) and eighteen (18), and have registered as a user of one or more of our websites or online services, you may request the removal of content or information you have posted that can be accessed by other users, by updating your profile and/or preferences, if you have created a Member account or otherwise registered on our website, or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, however, that removal of content or information you have posted from our websites or services does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information, particularly if the content or information you posted has been copied and/or reposted by a third party.
California Customers Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, a California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (“California customer”) is entitled to request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes, unless the business adopts and discloses to the public a policy of not disclosing customer’s personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes if the customer “opts out” of such communications. In that case, the business may comply with the law by notifying the customer of his or her right to prevent disclosure of personal information and providing a cost-free means to exercise that right. Our cost-free “opt-out” procedure is described in Section 5, above. If you use our “opt out” procedure, we will not disclose your personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.
Do Not Track Signals. California law requires us to let you know how we respond to web browser Do Not Track (DNT) signals. Because there currently isn’t an industry or legal standard for recognizing or honoring DNT signals, we don’t respond to them at this time.
