Effective date: February 12, 2018
1. Information We Collect
We may collect and store the following information—
When you sign up for the Service, we’ll ask you for your name, email address and a password. That’s all you need to register! If you connect to the Service using credentials from another application such as, say, Facebook or LinkedIn (we’ll call these “third party applications”), you authorize us to collect your authentication information, such as your username and encrypted access credentials on such third party application. We may also collect other information available on or through your third party application account, including, for example, your name, profile picture and email address.
1.2. Usage, Log Data & Cookies
When you use or interact with the Service, we may use a variety of technologies that collect information about how the Service is accessed and used. This information may include:
1. information about your type of subscription and your interactions with the Service, such as interactions with other content and/or iD users, third party applications, and advertising, products, and services which are offered, linked to, or made available on or through the Platform;
2. details of the queries you make and the date and time of such queries;
3. User Contributions, including messages you send and/or receive via the Service; and
4. technical data, which may include URL information, cookie data, your IP address, the types of devices you are using to access or connect to the iD Service, unique device ID, device attributes, network connection type (e.g., WiFi, 3G, LTE) and provider, network and device performance, browser type, operating system, and our application version.
1.3. Your Mobile Device
So you know, we’ll never gather, access, scan, import or use any of the following without first getting your explicit permission:
1.4. Widget Data
Other websites may integrate iD widgets. If they do, and when you visit such a website, we may receive certain information, including information about the web page you visited. iD and the widget can recognize you, and the widget may be used to show personalized content or advertising. In such cases, we know when you interact with a widget, and websites containing the widgets may receive this information.
1.5. iD Service Providers and Partners
We may also receive information about you from our service providers and partners, which we use to personalize your iD experience, to measure ad quality and responses to ads, and to display ads that are more likely to be relevant to you. We also use this information as explained in the section How We Use the Information We Collect below.
2. How We Use the Information We Collect
Consistent with the permissions you give us to collect the information, we may use the information we collect, including your personal information, for the following:
1. to provide, personalize, and improve your experience with the Service and products, services, and advertising (including for products and services offered by other companies) made available on or outside the Service (including on other sites that you visit), for example by providing customized, personalized, or localized content, recommendations, features, and advertising on or outside of the Service;
2. to ensure technical functionality of the Service, develop new products and services, and analyze your use of the Service, including your interaction with applications, advertising, products, and services that are made available, linked to, or offered through the Service;
3. to communicate with you for Service-related or research purposes including via emails, notifications, text messages, or other messages, which you agree to receive;
4. to communicate with you, either directly or through one of our partners, for marketing and promotional purposes via emails, notifications, or other messages, consistent with any permissions you may have communicated to us (e.g., through your iD account settings); in the section Sharing Information below, we inform you of the controls you can use to opt out from receiving certain messages;
5. to enable and promote the Service and other services or products, either within or outside the Service, including features and content of the Service and products and services made available through the Service;
6. to process payments or prevent or detect fraud;
8. to provide you with features, information, advertising, or other content which is influenced by your location and your location in relation to other iD users; and
3. Sharing Information
Now let’s talk about how all the information that is collected or generated through your use of the Service may be shared by you or by us. You can set your sharing preferences with others and manage notifications in 3 places -- Settings, Profile and Goals. Don’t forget though, any information you share with a third party application is viewable on iD regardless of how you set up your preferences in Settings, Profile and Goals.
You probably already know this but we thought we’d remind you – even if you remove a post, others who already have access to it (e.g., via a link or third party applications) may still maintain access to it. Also keep in mind that posts and other information added to your Profile may include personal information, such as username, which could enable others to find you within the Platform or other services. If something is truly private, you may not wish to have it on the Platform. Even with best practices, once something is on the Internet, we can’t guarantee it won’t be copied or disseminated.
3.1. Sharing by You
The Service offers many ways for you to find, enjoy, and share content. We encourage you to take advantage of these social features with other iD users, including Allies, on the Service – keep in mind, when you make an organization an ally, you get to decide whether or not you want them to view information that is not viewable to other iD users by tweaking your Settings. We provide many choices about the collection, use and sharing of your data.
If you connect your iD account to a third party application, iD may automatically share your information such as your name and e-mail address, activity and activity-related stories with that service, including the content you consume. Also, certain information may be available to third party applications, which means that it may be accessed by them through our APIs (that stands for application programming interface, which is computer jargon for software that enables two programs or websites to communicate with each other) and developer tools. Based on your explicit permission, some additional information may be shared with third party applications and with others through third party applications. You understand and agree that all such information may be attributed to your account on the third party application and may be published on such service. These third party applications may also provide similar controls. You understand and agree that a third party application’s use of information collected from you (or as authorized by you) is governed by such third party application’s privacy policies and your settings on the relevant service, and iD’s use of such information is governed by the Agreements.
We may use your information to promote the Service and to help others find and engage with you, including through Facebook, LinkedIn or other third party application s and on websites that embed iD widgets. Your information may be used to notify others, including within the Service, via email, or through Facebook, LinkedIn or other third party applications, about your use of the Service (e.g., that you have joined iD or activity related to an iD profile.)
While we hope you’ll remain a lifelong member of the iD community, if for whatever reason you ever want a break from us and want to deactivate your account, just go here. Once you deactivate your account, your account won’t be visible to or searchable by other iD users. We’ll retain all the information you have provided to us on the Platform and through the Service even after your account is deactivated. Then again, you may miss us – if you want to reactivate your account, simply log back into the Service!
3.2. Information iD May Share
3.2.1. Marketing and advertising
We may share aggregated and anonymized information with organizations you tag as Allies, advertising partners for promotional communications, including advertising for products and services that we think may be of interest to you, and to help us understand how you and other iD users interact with advertisements.
Check out the Information About Cookies, Other Technologies, and Third-Party Data Collection section for information about cookies and other technologies that we and others use to show you more ads for stuff that is likely to appeal to you and your options as to how to deal with them.
3.2.2. Service Providers and Others
3.2.3. Content Owners
The Service may allow you access to video content that others own and have allowed us to show you. iD shares information with the people that license this content to us. The data that iD shares is in a de-identified format that doesn’t identify you directly, unless you opt-in to sharing your personal information.
3.2.4. Other Sharing
In addition to the above, we may also share your information with others for these limited purposes:
We may display advertisements from third parties and other content that links to third party websites. We can’t control or be held responsible for third parties’ privacy practices and content. Please read their privacy policies to find out how they collect and process your information.
5. How Secure Is My Data?
We are committed to protecting our users’ information. Your password protects your user account, so you should use a unique and strong password, limit access to your computer and browser, and log out after having used the iD Service. While we take data protection precautions, no security measures are completely secure, and we don’t guarantee the security of any user information.
6. What About Children?
The iD Service is not intended for, and not directed to, children under the age of 13. And that’s why we don’t knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are under 13, don’t use the Service and don’t provide any personal information to us. If you are a parent of a child under 13 and become aware that your child has provided personal information to iD, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and you may request exercise of your applicable access, rectification, cancellation, and/or objection rights. If you are a California resident under the age of 18 and you wish to remove publicly available content, please contact us at email@example.com.
7. How Do I Update My Information or Change My Preferences
8. Information About Cookies, Other Technologies and Third-Party Data Collection
We and our partners use various technologies to collect and store information when you access our Platform or use our Service, and this may include using cookies or other technologies to identify your browser or device. We also use these technologies to collect and store information when you interact with services we offer to our partners, such as advertising services or iD features that may appear on other sites.
8.1. So What are Cookies and Other Technologies?
A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer, mobile phone, or other device when you visit a website. The cookie will help website providers to recognize your device the next time you visit their website. There are other similar technologies such as web beacons, mobile device identifiers and pixel tags (transparent graphic images placed on a web page or in an email, which indicate that a page or email has been viewed), web bugs (similar to pixel tags), and web storage, which are used in desktop software or mobile devices.
8.2. And How Do We Use These Cookies and Other Technologies?
8.3. How Can I Manage My Preferences for Cookies and Other Technologies?
There is no accepted standard on how to respond to Do Not Track signals, and we don’t respond to such signals.
On your mobile device, you may also have a “Limit Ad Tracking” setting (on iOS devices) or a setting to “Opt out of Interest-Based Ads” (on Android) which allows you to limit the use of information about your use of apps for purposes of serving ads targeted to your interests.
Please note that even if you opt out using the mechanisms above, you may still receive advertisements when using the Service.
We work with advertising partners to serve advertisements on the iD Service. One of the services we use to track activity related to the Service, e.g., by placing cookies, is Google Analytics. We may use vendors, including Google, who use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on your past visits to our websites, including Google Analytics for Display Advertising. Google provides tools to manage the collection and use of certain information by Google Analytics at tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and by Google Analytics for Display Advertising or the Google Display Network by using Google’s Ads Settings at google.com/settings/ads.
You hereby consent to the use of the cookies and other technologies described above.
