Our Services typically collect two kinds of information about you: (a) information that you provide that personally identifies you and (b) information that does not personally identify you that we automatically collect when you use our Services or that you provide to us.
Personally Identifiable Information: The personally identifiable information you submit to us is generally used to carry out your requests, to respond to your inquiries, to better serve you, or in other ways naturally associated with the circumstances in which you provided the information. We may also use this information to later contact you for a variety of reasons, such as customer service, to provide service updates, to provide you promotional information for our products or services or those of our Affiliated Companies, to identify and target you for promotional activities as someone who may be interested in a particular product or service of Talenthouse or our Affiliated Companies, to communicate with you about content or other information you have posted or shared with us via our Services, to administer Creative Invites, to send you invitations to new Creative Invites, and to contact you if you are successful in any such promotion or competition.
Non-Personal Information: We use non-personal information in a variety of ways, including without limitation to help analyze site traffic, understand customer needs and trends, carry out targeted promotional activities of a particular product or service of Talenthouse or our Affiliated Companies, to ensure that content is presented to you in the best way possible, to enable you to participate in interactive features on our Website, and to improve our Services. We may use your non-personal information by itself or aggregate it with information we have obtained from others. We may share your non-personal information with our Affiliated Companies and third parties to achieve these objectives and others, but remember that such information is anonymous information that does not personally identify you.
Marketing: We may use your personally identifiable information to contact you by email to notify you about our products and Services (and those offered by our Affiliated Companies). We do not share personally identifiable information with third parties for marketing of third party products or services without first obtaining your express consent.
You may ask us at any time not to use your information for marketing purposes by contacting us at email@example.com or by exercising your right to unsubscribe on the relevant communication.
Cookies: "Cookies" are small text files from a website that are stored on your hard drive. These text files make using our Services more convenient by, among other things, saving your account authentication token and preferences for you. We may analyze the information derived from these cookies and match this information with data provided by you or another party.
Third Parties: We may share your personally identifiable information with third parties such as our co-promotional partners and others with whom we have marketing or other relationships (e.g., Talenthouse’s Creative Studio partners). We may also share your information with our business partners who assist us by performing core services (such as hosting, data storage and security) related to the operation of this Website and our Services, or by making certain Services and Website functionality available to our users (collectively, "Third Party Service Providers"). These Third Party Service Providers will only use your information to carry out their specific business obligations to us. A list of the material Third Party Service Providers is available here.
Your California Privacy Rights: Residents of the State of California have the right to request from businesses with whom the California resident has an established business relationship a list of all third parties to which the business, during the immediately preceding calendar year, has disclosed certain personally identifiable information for direct marketing purposes. We are only required to respond to a customer request once during any calendar year. To obtain this information you should send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading "California Privacy Rights." In your request, please attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. Please be aware that not all information sharing is covered by the California Privacy Rights Requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.
Response to Do Not Track Signals: We do not track our customers across third party websites and thus do not respond to Do Not Track ("DNT") signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content. Your browser may allow you to set the DNT signal so that third parties know you do not want to be tracked.
We may transfer your information to, or store it in, countries located outside the European Economic Area ("EEA") which do not have as developed data protection laws. If we transfer your data to third parties in the United States (i.e., other than to Talenthouse or our Affiliated Companies), we will endeavor to only send the data to companies which are Safe Harbor registered and certified. It may also be processed by staff at our Affiliated Companies or by Third Party Service Providers. Please do not register an account or otherwise send us your information if you do not want it to be transferred to or stored outside the EEA. By providing your information to us, you agree and consent to us transferring to, and storing your information at, countries outside of the EEA (a list of which can be found here).
The features, programs, promotions and other aspects of our Website requiring the submission of personally identifiable information are not intended for anyone under eighteen (18) years of age.
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from persons under the age of eighteen (18). If you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 18 and believe that your child has disclosed personally identifiable information to us, please contact us at email@example.com. A parent or guardian of a child under the age of 18 may review and request deletion of such child’s personally identifiable information through the opt-out procedures in Section I as well as prohibit the use thereof.
We have implemented security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control, including without limitation Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt the transmission of nonpublic personally identifiable information and other information to and from the Website. Our Third Party Service Providers may also utilize additional security devices such as firewalls, security patches, and anti-virus programs, to protect nonpublic personally identifiable information. Please be advised, however, that while we and our Third Party Service Providers strive to protect your personally identifiable information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personally identifiable information. In the unfortunate event that your "personally identifiable information" (as the term or similar terms are defined by any applicable law requiring notice upon a security breach) is compromised, we will notify you in the most reasonable manner under the circumstances; provided, however, delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification could impede a criminal investigation. From time to time we evaluate new technology for protecting information, and when appropriate, we upgrade our information security systems.
Our Services may link to or contain links to third party websites or services that we do not control or maintain. We are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by any third party website. We encourage you to note when you leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of all third party websites before submitting any personally identifiable information to them.
A registered user may log in to the Website and disable his/her account through the user’s profile page. Disabling your account will render your profile page unviewable. However, we may retain your personally identifiable information and may reinstate your account (at your request).
You have the right to see the personally identifiable information that we hold about you. You also have the right to access your information and should direct any request for your information to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Except where prohibited by applicable law, currently a fee of fifteen dollars (US $15) may be payable to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.
We will respond to your request and, if applicable and appropriate, make the requested change in our active databases as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that we may not be able to fulfill certain requests while allowing you access to certain benefits and features of our Services.
