How does treatings collect and use your information?
Interactions with treatings. treatings is designed to help you connect with other treatings users in your general vicinity and with your general professional interests. Accordingly, much of the information you provide to us is information that you are asking us to make public. For example, when you use treatings, you are sharing locations convenient to you and networking goals with us so we can show you other treatings users in your general vicinity who may be able to provide career counseling. In addition, you are asking us to share your presence with other treatings users that are close to you.
Messages. When you send a message through treatings, we will retain that message as required to operate treatings. Messages you initiate will not include your personal email address. It is within your sole discretion to share your personal contact information with other users.
Communicating with you. We will typically communicate with you using your registered email address. If we cannot reach you by email, we may use other contact information that you provide. We will communicate with you in accordance with your preferences and in response to inquiries, to provide requested services and to manage your account. We will send you mandatory service-related announcements and notifications by email when necessary. You cannot opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option of canceling your account. We may broadcast or otherwise distribute important messages to all users or send individual messages to specific users where we have appropriate contact information to do so. We also may send information to you by email about our services, including special alerts, offers, awards, surveys, contests, promotions and updates. You will be given the option not to receive these types of communications.
Surveys and Contests. We may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys from time to time. Participation in contests or surveys is completely voluntary. If you choose to participate, we may request certain additional information about you. We may use this information to monitor system traffic, supplement, amend and personalize our system, direct advertisements, communicate with participants, develop our products and services, or conduct market research. We will use email addresses to distribute and collect surveys, notify contest winners and award prizes.
Promotional Emails. If you opt-in when you register, we may periodically send you promotional emails related to treating or targeted offers from select third parties. You can choose to stop receiving promotional emails from us at any time by following the instructions provided in the promotional emails you receive or by “opting out” through your account profile page.
Legal sharing for protection of us, you, and others. We may disclose personal information to third parties who are assisting us in protecting against or preventing actual or potential fraud, unauthorized transactions, claims or other liabilities, or to investigate potential fraudulent or questionable activities. We may disclose personal information in response to legal process, such as in response to a court order or a subpoena. We may disclose personal information in response to a law enforcement agency's request, or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud, violations of our Terms, or as we believe may be otherwise required by law. We may also disclose personal information to protect our rights or interests or the rights or interests of others.
Merger or Sale. If all or substantially all of treatings or its assets are sold or transferred, your personal information and other information we have collected may be treated as an asset and transferred in accordance with this Policy.
Non-private or non-personal information. We may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated, or otherwise non-personal information, such as information you publicly share, the number of users that viewed your posts, Log Data, etc.
How does treatings collect and use technical information?
Mobile Device Information. If and when we launch treatings as a mobile application, we will collect some information from your mobile device, such as an ID that is unique to each mobile device on which you use treatings. We may create an anonymized version of your device ID to log you into treatings, and we may store your device ID along with other personal information we collect about you. We may use this device information to operate treatings, and we may share this device information with our third party partners.
Mobile Location Information. When you use treatings on a mobile device, we will determine your location through the GPS, Wi-Fi or other technology on the device through which you access treatings. We will use this location information to determine your distance from other treatings users. Depending on your privacy settings, we may use this location information to identify your presence to other treatings users who are nearby. We will store your location information along with your device ID and other personal information we collect about you as necessary to operate treatings.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN YOU USE TREATINGS, YOUR LOCATION INFORMATION WILL BE SHARED WITH OTHER TREATINGS SERVICE USERS. YOU HEREBY CONSENT TO THE DISCLOSURE OF YOUR LOCATION INFORMATION AS DESCRIBED ABOVE.
Log Data and Cookies. Our servers (which may be hosted by third party service providers) automatically record information created by your use of treatings. Log data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, your mobile carrier, device and application IDs, operating system version, phone number, location history, and search terms. Other actions, such as interactions with our website, applications and advertisements, may also be included in log data.
By using treatings, you are authorizing us to gather, parse, and retain data related to the provision of treatings.
Personalization of Experience. We may personalize your experience by using your site behavior. We also monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the site.
Data Retention. treatings will retain your information for so long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Where possible (and subject to the foregoing), we generally remove your data from active user databases promptly upon request, but a longer period may be required to delete other copies stored on our servers. Note that we do not delete from our servers files that you have in common with other users, and that we may retain archival copies of all of your data stored in connection with routine information technology backups.
Updating Your Personal Information
If you are a registered user of treatings, you can access, modify, correct and eliminate the personal information you provided to us through treatings. You may request deletion of your information at any time by contacting treatings customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to your request within 30 days.
How treatings Secures Your Personal Information
treatings user accounts are protected by your LinkedIn credentials. We use reasonable measures to protect user information that is stored within our systems, and we restrict access to user information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel, service administrators, and technical staff.
All information that you provide will be protected with industry-standard protocols and technology. Our physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards meet or exceed current federal standards regarding the protection of customer information. We also require contractors and outside companies who work with us to adhere to strict privacy standards through their contracts with us. Unfortunately, no security system, transmission of data over the Internet or mobile devices, or even physical transfer of information, can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Consequently, while we use commercially reasonable efforts to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers, the means by which information is transmitted between your computer and our servers, or any information provided to us or to any third party through or in connection with the website. Any information that you provide to us is done so entirely at your own risk. We do not ensure or warrant the security of any data or information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.
If treatings learns of a security systems breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may post a notice on our website if a security breach occurs. We also may notify you through the email address associated with your account. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice), you should notify us at email@example.com.
Children and International Visitors
treatings is not directed to people under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we take steps to remove that information and terminate the child’s account. In addition, if you learn that your child who is under the age of 18 has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Third Party Websites
Closing Your Account
You may close your account through the treatings customer service site. If you close your account, we will remove your name and other personal information from our public database. If you close your account, we may delete any or all of your personal information without liability. However, we may retain certain data if we believe it is necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, or for legitimate business purposes, or if required by law. Any information you shared with others may remain visible.
