This is where you can find out how Partof App (“Partof”, “we”, “us”, “our”) collects, stores, protects and shares data about you (“Policy”). It’s best read alongside our Partof Terms and Conditions.
When you’re using our Partof online platform ("site"), there is some information we collect about you, and you can share your information on the site with other users ("Users"). The Policy is intended to meet our duties of transparency under the “General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR”.
1. Collection of information
Access to Partof is granted through various means of your choice: your Google account or your email.
If you connect through Google, we will collect information about you from Google (as applicable), including an email address, full name and a unique ID (which allows Google to identify you as a legitimate user of the account).
During our onboarding process, so that we can check whether your account is legitimate, we ask you to take a selfie, which is processed by a third-party provider. If the third-party system flags anything that may mean the photo is not of a real person (or that you do not meet the criteria required to be a member), the photo is then passed back to our team to review.
Log and Usage Data
Our servers automatically record information ("Log and Usage Data") created by your use of Partof, which again helps us to improve our service. Log and Usage Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, access times, your mobile carrier, unique device identifier, device model, operating system, MAC address and search terms.
Marketing and Communications Data
We also collect information on your preferences in receiving marketing from us and your communication preferences (“Marketing and Communications Data”).
We collect “Behavioral Data”, which is inferred or assumed information relating to your behavior and interests, based on your online activity. This is most often collated and grouped into “segments” (e.g., there may be a segment for women, living in New York and aged under 35, who like contemporary art).
Your Content Data
You can post content on the website and/or participate in chats through it. This content may contain personal data, but only what you choose to disclose.
We also collect, use and share “Aggregated Data” such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data, but once in aggregated form it will not constitute considered personal data for the purposes of the GDPR as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this Policy.
No Special Categories of Personal Data
We do not collect any “Special Categories of Personal Data” about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences. However, you have the option of providing such information in your profile or in any information you publish on our site, for instance by sharing your sexual orientation with other users. Please do not submit any Special Categories of Personal Data if you are not happy for such information to be shared publicly on your Partof account.
2. Uses made of the information
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it as listed below, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.
If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will update this Policy and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
What is our “legal basis” for processing your Personal Data?
In respect of each of the purposes for which we use your personal data, the GDPR requires us to ensure that we have a “legal basis” for that use. Most commonly, we will rely on one of the following legal bases:
Generally, we do not rely on your Consent as a legal basis for using your personal data other than in the context of direct marketing communications.
We have set out below, in a table format, the legal bases we rely on in respect of the relevant Purposes for which we use your Personal Data. (see the first chart below)
What happens when you do not provide necessary personal data?
Where we need to process your personal data either to comply with law, or to perform the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with the functionalities of or access to the Site).
In this case, we may have to stop you using our Site but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
3. Disclosure of your information
We will not disclose your information, except in the limited circumstances described here:
4. Where we store your personal data
Many of our external third parties are based inside of the United States.
We endeavor to ensure that people to whom we provide personal data hold it subject to appropriate safeguards and controls.
We have the ability to send you marketing materials that you can opt-out of. When opted out, we may send you emails which are necessary for us to provide our services, or to announce any update of our Site or Terms and Conditions.
6. What others see about you
Partof is designed to make it easier for you to connect with other Users and to interact with them. Other Users of the Site will see:
Such other Users may therefore share your profile information with individuals who may or may not be Users or via third party applications. So, please be careful about what permissions you grant through the Site and what you post, particularly when it relates to your children. We want to keep you safe, but we need you to help us.
7. Our Policy Towards Age
Our Site is for adults. You have to be at least 18 years old to use the Site. We don’t market to anyone under the age of 18 either. If we discover you’re under 18, we will delete your account, sorry but we’re looking forward to welcoming you soon!
8. Removing Partof access
If you want to remove Partof from your Google account at any time you can do this by visiting the application settings on your Google profile (as applicable) and following the instructions to remove Partof access permissions.
Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your Account, copies of that information may still be viewable and/or accessed to the extent such information has been previously shared with others, made public by you during your use of the Site, or copied or stored by other Users or to the extent such information has been shared with search engines. We cannot control this, nor do we accept any liability for this. The Site may also include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share your personal data. We do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements. If you have given third party applications or websites access to your personal data, they may retain such information to the extent permitted under their terms of service or privacy policies.
9. Your Rights Relating to Your Personal Data
By law you have the right to:
How to exercise your rights
If you want to exercise any of the rights described above, please contact us at email@example.com
Typically, you will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, except in relation to Consent Withdrawal, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive, or, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
If you would like to make a complaint regarding this Policy or our practices in relation to your personal data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will reply to your complaint as soon as we can.
If you feel that your complaint has not been adequately resolved, please note that the GDPR gives you the right to contact your local data protection supervisory authority.
10. How we keep your personal data secure
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed.
We limit access to your personal data to those employees and other staff who have a business need to have such access. All such people are subject to a contractual duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any actual or suspected personal data breach. In the event of any such breach, we have systems in place to work with applicable regulators. In addition, in certain circumstances (e.g., where we are legally required to do so) we may notify you of breaches affecting your personal data.
We may revise this Policy from time to time. If we make a change to this Policy that, in our sole discretion, is material, we will notify you, for example, via an email. The revised Policy will apply from the date on which we post it on this page.
We collect information by placing cookies on your mobile or desktop. A cookie is a piece of text stored on your computer or mobile by your web browser. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer or mobile device until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Site.
