PRIVACY POLICY

Effective as of 2016-10-19 (October 19th 2016).

Preamble

This Master Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains the collection, use, and disclosure of “personal information” by Goodvertising, a Danish Company. Unless otherwise noted on a particular site or service, this Privacy Policy applies to your use of Goodvertising.site, as well as the products, information, and services provided through the website. Furthermore, this Privacy Policy does not apply to any of the websites operated by affiliates of Goodvertising.

In addition, supplemental Privacy Policy terms (“Supplemental Privacy Policy Terms”) may apply to a particular Service, such as the Scholar’s Copyright Addendum Engine (http://sciencecommons.org/resources/supplemental-privacy-policy/). All such Supplemental Privacy Policy Terms will be accessible for you to read either within, or through your use of, that particular Service.

This Privacy Policy also explains our commitment to you with respect to our use and disclosure of non-personal browsing and site usage data that Goodvertising collects as the provider of the Services. That commitment is contained in a “Data Usage Policy,” below.

As used in this policy, “personal information” means information that would allow a party to identify you such as, for example, your name, address or location, telephone number, or email address.

By accessing or using any of the Services, you are accepting and agreeing to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Our Principles

Goodvertising is committed to handling responsibly the information and data we collect about you through our Services, whether personal information or non-personal browsing and site usage data. We have designed our Privacy Policy consistent with the following principles (the “Principles”):

  • Privacy policies and data collection and use policies should be human readable, comprehensive, and easy to locate;
  • Only the minimum amount of information reasonably necessary to provide you with services should be collected and maintained, and only for so long as reasonably needed or required;
  • Information you provide through our Services, or that we gather as a result of your use of our Services, should not be used for marketing or advertising purposes, nor should it be provided voluntarily (without your permission) to anyone else unless required; and
  • If Goodvertising is required to provide a third party with your personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then provided we have collected and retained an email address for you, Goodvertising will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless prohibited by law or Goodvertising is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.

Personal Information Goodvertising Collects

We may collect personal information through our Services, including without limitation:

  • when you provide us with your personal information such as by sending an email to us or signing up to receive updates from Goodvertising;
  • when you subscribe to our email lists;
  • when you purchase merchandise;
  • when you provide personal information in connection with your participation in any of the forums we make available through our Services.

What Goodvertising Does with Personal Information

Emails and Newsletters. We use the personal information you provide to us when you send us emails or sign up to receive updates from Goodvertising in order to respond to your request – for example, to reply to your email or to send you communications about Goodvertising news and campaigns.

When you subscribe to updates from us, your email address is sent to and stored in a database hosted on Goodvertising’ servers that can only be accessed by Goodvertising staff and contractors. When you subscribe to our email list, your name and email address is sent to and stored by Goodvertising, or another service with which Goodvertising has engaged to provide email support. Personal information submitted as part of our email list is used for the purpose of managing the list and sending newsletters.

Purchases. When you purchase merchandise from the Goodvertising store, your personal information will be used for the purpose of sending you the items you purchased. If you sign up to receive updates from Goodvertising when you check out from the store, we will use your personal information to send you communications about Goodvertising news and campaigns.

Disclosures of Personal Information

In general, it is not Goodvertising’ practice to disclose personal information to third parties. We may however share your personal information in two instances:

  • First, Goodvertising may share personal information with our contractors and service providers in order to maintain, enhance, or add to the functionality of the Services.
  • Second, we may disclose your personal information to third parties in a good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) take action regarding suspected illegal activities; (b) enforce or apply our Master Terms of Use and Privacy Policy; (c) comply with legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order; or (d) protect our rights, reputation, and property, or that of our users, affiliates, or the public.

If Goodvertising is required to provide a third party with your personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then provided we have collected and retained an email address for you, Goodvertising will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless prohibited by law or Goodvertising is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.

Security of Personal Information Collected via the Services

Goodvertising has implemented reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of personal information that Goodvertising stores and controls. However, no website can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. We will post a reasonably prominent notice to the Websites if any such security breach occurs.

Data Usage Policy: Non Personal Browsing and Site Usage Information

Our Data Usage Policy covers how we maintain and use information about you that is collected by our Services.

Non Personal Browsing Information We Collect

When you use the Services, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your “IP address”) about your activities while visiting the Websites and information about the browser you are using.

No Linking

We do not intentionally link browsing information or information from our server logs to the personal information you submit to us. We use this information for internal purposes only, such as to help understand how the Services are being used, to improve our Services, and for systems administration purposes. Goodvertising may use a third party analytics provider to help us collect and analyze non personal browsing information through operation of our Services for those same purposes.

No Selling or Sharing

Except in the unique situations identified in this Privacy Policy, Goodvertising does not sell or otherwise voluntarily provide the non-personal browsing information we collect about you or your website usage to third parties.

No Retention

CC discards non personal browsing information from our server logs once we have used the information for the limited purposes noted above, under “No Linking.”

Notice

If Goodvertising is required to provide a third party with your non personal browsing information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then Goodvertising will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless Goodvertising is prohibited by law from doing so or is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.

Any other non-personal information that we collect which is not described specifically in this Privacy Policy will only be collected and used in accordance with the Principles.

Reorganization or Spin-Offs

Goodvertising may transfer some or all of your personal and/or non personal browsing information to a third party as a result of a reorganization, spin-off, or similar transaction. Upon such transfer, the acquirer’s privacy policy will apply. In such event, Goodvertising will use reasonable efforts to notify you and to ensure that at the time of the transaction the acquirer’s privacy policy complies with the Principles.

Third-Party Sites

The Services may include links to other websites. You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party sites. This Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other websites.

Special Note to International Users

The Services are hosted in Denmark. Please note that your personal data may be located on servers in Denmark. By providing your personal data you consent to the use of your personal data for the uses identified above in accordance with the Privacy Policy.

Changes and Updates to this Privacy Policy

We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When we do, we will also revise the Effective Date below. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the Services constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any updates.
