What types of information do we collect?
We collect two types of information about our Site Users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information is information that identifies a specific end user. We ask you for this information when you create an account on Site as an Experteer or an organization. Some of the information requested includes your name, country, languages spoken, mailing address, email address, gender, work history, education, etc. At the time of the request, this information will be identified as either mandatory or voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory information, you will not be permitted to create an Account and use the Site.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information is information that does not identify a specific end user. We collect this information automatically. This type of information may include things like the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) of the Site you visited before coming to our Site, the URL of the site you visit after leaving our Site, what pages you have accessed in our Site, how many times you clicked on specific areas, and where you clicked during your navigation, the type of owser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. Our mobile application automatically collects your phone’s operating version and operating system version.
How do we collect this information?
All the personally and non-personally identifiable information is collected via one of the following methods:
- Users inputting their data into our system, including data they input while creating an account, using our online chat forum, and messaging services.
- If you allow the LinkedIn connect feature, we may copy some information from your LinkedIn account. You will be notified as to what this information is before approving the connection.
- Billing information is collected using Stripe (http://www.stripe.com).
How do we use the information collected?
We may use the information we collect from you when you register, chat/message with other parties when online, click on a third party link, respond to a survey or marketing communication, surf the Site, or use certain other site features in the following ways:
- To authenticate users and their profile information
- To perform services, i.e., allow you to create an account, upload and display information and photos regarding your expertise or organization, and match up Experteers to non-profit organizations
- To allow for payment for our services
- To improve the Site’s functionalities
- To improve our services and make them more targeted to customer needs
- To troubleshoot your specific problems
How do we protect information collected?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible to a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be only accessed as stated above.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to partner with companies which do the same, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to or from the Site, and we are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.
Do we use "Cookies"?
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox) settings. Each owser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.
Do we disclose the information we collect to third parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to third parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice, except as described below. The term "third parties" does not include MovingWorlds, its affiliates, parent or subsidiary corporations. It also does not include Site hosting partners such as Amazon Web Services and Stripe, and other parties who assist us in operating our Site, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.
We may release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others' rights, property, or safety.
How can you opt-out, remove or modify information you have provided to us?
Users may delete or edit their personal information by directly making those changes in their online account. These changes will be permanent. Also, you may choose to display only select personal information by making those choices in your account settings.
Please note that we may be required (by law or otherwise) to keep this information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request, only after we have fulfilled such requirements). When we delete Personal Information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives. Moreover, you will not be able to delete the personal information, which is mandatory to maintain your Account, without cancelling your Account.
