Effective Date: May 25, 2018
Please note that your privacy is important to us. This policy is adjusted to current US and EU data protection regulations and is intended to help you understand:
- What information we collect about you
- How we use information we collect
- How we share information we collect
- How we store and secure information we collect
- How to access and control your information
- How we transfer information we collect internationally
- Other important privacy information
The Services collect and analyze data that is made available publicly through the Internet in order to measure and manage YouTube channels and videos and create a score (“Strike Score”) for Internet users, including, but not limited to, our registered users. Strike Social presents some of this data on the Site and our mobile application(s); such data may also be available on other websites, and Strike Social may share this data with our third party partners (as described in more detail below). Strike Social does not analyze non-public data from private networks (in other words, networks that are password-protected) unless you authorize us to access such data.
The Personal Information we use is the information you submit to us to gain access to the Services (to log in). The basis to process your Personal Information is your consent, which is expressed during the registration to the Product. We find this consent as a lawful reason for holding and processing any personal data.
The other basis to process your Personal Information may be a legal contract, in which there is expressed consent and which specifies to Personal Information given by the you. We find such legal contract as a lawful reason for holding and processing any Personal Information.
We do not collect or process any Personal Information that belongs to the special category of data, for example, about ethnicity, religion, and/or other sensitive information.
Under the “personal data” minimalization rule, we are trying to minimalize the amount of Personal Information stored in connection with realisation of the Services.
INFORMATION COLLECTED UPON REGISTRATION.
If you desire to have access to certain restricted sections of the Services and/or to have access to or use of certain parts of the Services, you will be required to become a registered user, and to submit certain Personal Information to Strike Social. Personal Information that we may collect in such instances may include your full user name, password, email address, city, time zone, telephone number, and other information that you decide to provide us with, or that you decide to include in your public profile.
Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration is entirely optional, but enables you to better identify yourself and find opportunities in the Strike Social system.
Log Data. When you interact with the Site or use the Services, our servers automatically receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information (“Log Data”). This Log Data is collected passively and may include information such as your IP address, browser type, and/or the domain from which you are visiting, the Site pages you visit, the search terms you use, and any advertisements on which you click. For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider, the IP address will be different every time you log on. We use Log Data to provide you with the Services (for example, to provide push notifications on your mobile device) and pool it with other information to monitor the use of the Services, and for the technical administration of the Services. We do not associate your IP address with any other Personal Information to identify you personally, except in cases where we are asked to comply with a subpoena or other legal demand or where we suspect that there has been a violation of our policies, our Terms of Service, and/or applicable law.
Use of Personal Information
In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, Strike Social also often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Information and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and Strike Social may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents, and/or business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. Strike Social may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe the Services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
We consider your Personal Information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Information with certain third parties, without further notice to you, as set forth below.
Service Providers. We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, including, without limitation, hosting and maintenance, customer relationship, database storage and management, and direct marketing campaigns. We will share your Personal Information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services.
Furthermore, in connection with the operation, promotion, advertising or marketing of the Services, we may provide certain of our partners (e.g., Microsoft; special reward providers; etc.) with Personal Information (e.g., your name or Strike Social username) and other content or information related to you (e.g., your profile picture or Strike Score, etc.), or provide certain of our partners with access to our application programming interfaces (“APIs”) in order to access such information using information (such as Twitter handles) already in their possession.
Please note that each time we provide any of your Personal Information or other information to our partners, we only provide information to these partners that is publicly available or publicly viewable in your Strike Social profile at the time we provide it.
Business Transfers. Strike Social may sell, transfer, and/or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy.
Disclosures for Legal Purposes. Strike Social may disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Strike Social, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, and/or (iv) protect against legal liability.
Strike Social is very concerned about the security of your Personal Information. We employ administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. We will make any legally-required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted, electronically-stored Personal Information to you via email or a conspicuous posting on this Site in the most-expedient time reasonably possible and without unreasonable delay, consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement and/or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
Links to Other Websites
The Services contain links to other websites. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization, or representation of our affiliation with that third party. We do not exercise control over third-party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer and collect data or solicit personally identifiable information from you. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personally-identifiable information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.
