Your Privacy Rights
Effective Date: April 21, 2022
Regardless of where our servers are located, your personal data may be processed by us in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may or may not be to the same level of protection as in other parts of the world. BY VISITING THE SITE AND USING THE SERVICE, YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING IN THE UNITED STATES OF ANY INFORMATION COLLECTED OR OBTAINED BY US THROUGH VOLUNTARY SUBMISSIONS, AND, TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE, THAT U.S. LAW GOVERNS ANY SUCH COLLECTION AND PROCESSING.
Sendspark does. We collect information from you on the Service, and we are responsible for the protection of your information.
A. Personal Information. We collect certain personal information about you, which may be supplied when you sign-up for the Service, when you complete a survey, when you create or update your Account, when you use the Site, when you request services, when you link your account to the Service or your social media account(s) via our optional integration, from third parties, and when you otherwise submit information to us. The types of personal information we collect and save include:
You may also provide us information when you interact with us through email, online chat, messaging functions within the Service, or otherwise. We may retain such information in order to provide you with Services, and you agree that we may share this information as needed with other users in order to resolve any issues that may arise between you and another user of the Service.
The Service may be integrated with third party social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram (“Platforms”). If you choose to interact with the Platforms through the Service, the Platforms may make additional Personal Information about you available to us.
The Service may record photos, audio, and video if you permit such access in order to use certain features of the Service. The Service may also notify us when you have read an email that we sent to you, and request permission to access your photo gallery, camera roll, or other device storage areas holding your images, audio, and videos for you to upload and transmit them through the Service.
The Service may also access the internet or use your mobile data plan in order to use certain features of the Service and send you push notifications. If you elect certain functionality, the Service may also add icons and/or shortcuts to your device and/or browser.
Although it may appear that we collect financial information, it is actually collected and processed through our third-party payment processor (“Payment Processor”). Our Payment Processor may collect information such as banking information or credit card number, name, CVV code or date of expiration, from you through use of the Service. Sendspark does not hold your financial information.
B. Non-personal Information. Non-personal information is anonymous or non-personally identifiable information about you, including but not limited to links and materials posted (including product reviews, images of you with the product, and feedback), information about your web browser, which goods are purchased and the timing of purchases, the pages accessed most frequently, how pages are used, search terms entered, and similar non-personal data.
Automatically tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses is one method of automatically collecting information about your activities online and information volunteered by you. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your device whenever you surf the internet, and may make it possible to identify your approximate location. Further, the Service may utilize web beacons, pixel tags, cookies, embedded links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools. Through collecting your IP address, we may be able to approximate your geographic location, however, unless and until this is information is paired with your PII, it cannot be used to identify you. If non-personal information is paired or linked to any of your PII, we will treat that non-personal information as if it was also PII.
C. Aggregate Information. We may also collect anonymous, non-identifying and aggregate information such as the type of browser you are using, location, device information, session information, page views, operating system, referring websites, and IP Address.
We accept and gather information in an effort to provide the Service and our products to you. We need to collect your personal information to, among other things, respond to your requests for products and information, to add you to our email lists, to integrate with the Platforms at your option, and generally to allow the Service to operate and our products to be sold and shipped to you. Our Payment Processor collects your payment information for sales of products. We also collect aggregate information to help us better design the Service and improve our products or product lines. We collect log information for monitoring purposes to help us to diagnose problems with our servers, administer the Service, calculate usage levels, and otherwise provide products and services to you.
A. We use the personal information you provide for the purposes for which you have submitted it including:
B. We may use anonymous information that we collect to improve the design and content of our Service, and to enable us to personalize your internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze how our Site is used, as well as to offer you products or services
Sendspark will not share your personal information except: (a) for the purposes for which you provided it; (b) with your consent; (c) as may be required by law or as we think necessary to protect our organization (including the defense of legal claims) or others from injury (e.g., in response to a court order or subpoena, in response to a law enforcement agency request, or when we believe that someone is causing, or is about to cause, injury to or interference with the rights or property of another); or (d) with persons or organizations with whom we contract to carry out internal operations or business activities. With your knowledge and/or consent, we may share your personal information with our business partners, to provide similar products and services. We may also share aggregate information with others, including affiliated and non-affiliated organizations.
Finally, we may transfer or disclose your personal information to a third party, or our successor in interest, in connection with, and/or as the result of, an acquisition, sale, merger, reorganization, or bankruptcy involving our company.
You may elect to share certain personal information with individuals or with the public via your use of the Site. In this case, you will control such sharing via settings that we provide. For example, the Site may make it possible for you to publicly share information via social media such as Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Be aware that when you choose to share information with friends, public officials, or with the public at large, you may be disclosing sensitive information, or information from which sensitive information can be inferred. Always use caution when sharing information through the Service. You understand and agree that we are not responsible for any consequences of your sharing of information through and beyond the Site.
After becoming a user of the Service, you may revise or edit your information through your account (If applicable) or by sending an email to email@example.com. For instructions on how you can further access your personal information that we have collected, or how to correct errors in such information, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may opt-out of third-party information sharing and/or receipt of promotional emails by emailing us at email@example.com with “Opt-Out” in the subject line, and indicating that you wish to opt-out of one or both of the foregoing features.
A. After receiving your personal information, we will store it on our servers for future use. We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in place to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet or data storage solution can ever be completely secure. As a result, although we take industry-standard steps to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or receive from us or that we store on our or our service providers' systems.
B. If you are visiting the Site from outside of the USA, you understand that your connection will be through and to servers located in the USA, and the information you provide will be securely stored in our servers and internal systems located within the US
C. We retain and store your personal information until you request us to remove it from our servers. We store our logs and other technical records indefinitely.
A. To enhance your online experience with us, our web pages may presently or in the future use "cookies." Cookies are text files that our web server may place on your computer’s hard drive to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other PII unless you choose to provide this information to us. Once you choose to provide PII, however, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. Although it may be possible to turn off the collection of cookies through your device or browser, certain features of the Services may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
C. We or our service providers may also use "pixel tags" "web beacons" "clear GIFs" or similar means (collectively, "Pixel Tags") in connection with some email messages for purposes of, among other things, compiling aggregate statistics about website usage and response rates. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1x1), that is ordinarily not visible to website visitors and may be associated with cookies on visitors’ hard drives. Pixel Tags allow us and our service providers to count users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver customized services, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, Pixel Tags can inform the sender of the email whether and when the email has been opened.
D. Our Service also uses the “Custom Audience pixel” of Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker way, Menlo Park, CA 94025 USA (“Facebook”) on our website. This allows user behavior to be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This enables us to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, so we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, which is why we are informing you, based on our knowledge of the situation. Facebook may link this information to your Facebook account and also use it for its own promotional purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s Data Policy available at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. You can allow Facebook and its partners to place ads on and off Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes. You can object to the collection of your data by Facebook pixel, or to the use of your data for the purpose of displaying Facebook ads by contacting the following address: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. For more information about interest-based ads, or to opt-out of having your web browsing information used for behavioral advertising purposes, please visit http://optout.aboutads.info.
E. As you use the internet, you leave a trail of electronic information at each website you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to “s "clickstream data”, can be collected and stored by a website's server. Clickstream data can reveal the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the website from which you linked to the Site. We may use clickstream data as a form of non-personally identifiable information to determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our Site, how visitors navigate through the Site, and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors. We will only use this information to improve our Site and Services.
F. Do Not Track. At present, the Site does not specifically respond to browser do-not-track signals.
Our Terms of Service document may identify certain third-party websites to which we may provide links, and that you may click on our Site. Please check the privacy policies of these other websites to learn how they collect, use, store and share information that you may submit to them or that they collect.
