B. Passive information collection

When you visit the Website, certain personal information may be passively collected, meaning it is gathered without your actively providing it. This data may include your IP address, location (city/state/country), Website usage information, and device information. 

We use cookies, and similar technologies, on the Website to improve the quality of our Website and services to you. We use cookies for several purposes, in order to offer a fast and safe digital experience, for example, allowing to maintain an active connection during navigation through the Website pages; to store credentials in a safe mode; to identify the Website pages that have already been visited, in order to prevent them from being proposed again; to gather data used in analytics; to share data with our service providers and other third parties; to support advertisements; and to store information about your elections such as cookie or content settings.

A cookie is a small text file that our Website sends to your computer to allow the Website to store information that uniquely identifies our Users.

You can always delete the cookies and reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to display a message when a cookie is being sent. If you reset your browser, some of the Website features and functionality may not be available to you and you may not be able to take advantage of all the features on the Website.

We may work with other companies that place cookies or web beacons on our Website. We do not have access or control over these cookies. These companies help operate our websites and provide you with additional Products and services. They are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and other legal restrictions. Certain functionalities related to the provision of additional Products and services require marketers to share website usage information about visitors to the Website, who have received a targeted promotional campaign, with a third-party advertising company for the purpose of targeting future campaigns and upgrading visitor information used in reporting statistics. To this end, this third-party advertising company may make a note of some of the pages you visit on the Website through the use of pixel tags. 

We also use Google Analytics, which is provided by Google Inc. It uses cookies to collect, for example, data about the operating system and the browser that you use, your IP address, the website you previously accessed (referrer URL) and the date and time of your visit to the Website. On subsequent repeated visits to the Website, frequently used information is automatically displayed for you. Google is able to track your usage patterns with the help of the cookies. The data generated using cookies about the use of the Website is transmitted to a Google server, which may be located within or outside of, the United States, and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the Website. Google may transfer these rights to third parties insofar as it is required to do so by law or in order that data may be processed on Google’s behalf. You can visit https://policies.google.com/privacy to learn more about Google Analytics’ use of cookies. The data that Google Analytics collects depends on the specific deployment of the cookie. For instance, in some circumstances, Geekfinders uses features such as enhanced conversions or consent mode to minimize the personal information collected by Google Analytics.

We also collect IP addresses, device information, and additional information through the use of web beacons and log files. Such information may include your browser type, Website usage, and whether you opened a communication you received from us.

4. Sharing of Personal Information

As discussed more fully below, we disclose your personal information as necessary to provide the services you request, which may include disclosing information to service providers and other third parties; when required by law; to protect rights and safety, and with your consent.

We may share personal information with: 

• Our service providers: We may share your personal information with our authorized service providers that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include data storage; customer relationship management software; website hosting; web forms for questionnaires; email marketing vendors; text marketing vendors; other marketing activities; providing customer service; performing business and operations analysis; supporting our Website; and marketing, as discussed above. These service providers may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purposes.

Under certain state privacy laws, this disclosure of information may be deemed to be a “sale” or a “share” of your personal information. As discussed below, you may opt out of the sale or sharing of your personal information for these purposes.

Other situations: We also may disclose your information:

• In response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.

• When we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees, or others; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or to enforce our Terms of Use Agreement or other agreements or policies.

• When you provide us with your consent to share your information with third parties.

Third-Party Privacy Policies: Any third parties to whom we may disclose personal information may have their own privacy policies which describe how they use and disclose personal information. Those policies will govern use, handling and disclosure of your personal information once we have shared it with those third parties as described in this Notice. If you want to learn more about their privacy practices, we encourage you to visit the websites of those third parties. These entities or their servers may be located either inside or outside the United States.

Categories of personal information sold or shared. While we do not disclose personal information to third parties in exchange for monetary compensation from such third parties, we do disclose or make available personal information to third parties, in order to receive certain services or benefits from them, such as when we allow third party tags to collect information such as browsing history on our Website, to improve and measure our ad campaigns. The California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”), defines a “sale” as disclosing or making available to a third party personal information in exchange for monetary or other valuable consideration, and it defines “share” in pertinent part as disclosing personal information to a third party for cross-context behavioral advertising. Pursuant to the CCPA, the categories of personal information that we may “sell” or “share” as defined under the CCPA include:

• Identifiers • Usage data • Electronic network activity information, including, but not limited to, browsing history, search history, and information regarding your interaction with our Websites • Geolocation data

We have “sold” and “shared” the categories of personal information listed above to third party cookie and analytics providers in the preceding twelve months.
 

5. Data Retention

We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Notice unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law or defined in an agreement. We may retain personal information for longer where required by our regulatory obligations or professional indemnity obligations, or where we believe it is necessary to establish, defend or protect our legal rights and interests or those of others.

We will also retain usage data for internal analysis, or to strengthen the security or improve the functionality of our Website.


 

6. Cross-Border Data Transfers

Where permitted by applicable law, we may transfer the personal information we collect about you to the United States and other jurisdictions that may not be deemed to provide the same level of data protection as your home country, as necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice. If you are located in the EU, UK, or Switzerland, we have implemented applicable Standard Contractual Clauses to protect the transfer of your personal information to the United States and other jurisdictions.

While we are focused on the security of your personal information and follow standards, processes and procedures that are designed to protect your personal information, you must remember that the Internet is a global communications vehicle open to threats, viruses and intrusions from others and so we cannot promise, and you should not expect, that we will be able to protect your personal information at all times and in all circumstances.

The Section above entitled “Personal Information We Collect” sets out the categories of personal information (as defined by the CCPA) about California residents that we have collected and disclosed to others for a business purpose within the past twelve months. We collect these categories of personal information from the sources described in the Section above entitled “Personal Information We Collect and How We Collect It,” and for the purposes described in the Section above entitled “How We Use Personal Information.”

If you are a California resident, the CCPA grants you certain rights and imposes restrictions on particular business practices as set forth below:

• Opt-Out of Sale or Sharing: California residents have the right to opt out of the sale of their personal information. California residents also have the right to opt-out of the “sharing” of their personal information, which under the law means making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating personal information to a third party for cross-context behavioral advertising.

• Initial Notice: We are required to notify California residents, at or before the point of collection of their personal information, the categories of personal information collected and the purposes for which such information is used.

• Right to Limit: California residents have the right to limit the use of sensitive personal information in certain situations. The CCPA defines “sensitive personal information” as personal information that reveals: (1) consumer’s Social Security or other state identification number; (2) a consumer’s account log-in, financial account, debit card, or credit card number in combination with any required security or access code, password, or credentials allowing access to an account; (3) consumer’s geolocation; (4) consumer’s racial or ethnic origin, religious or philosophical beliefs, or union membership; (5) the contents of a consumer’s mail, email, or text messages, unless the business is the intended recipient of the communication; and (6) consumer’s genetic data. You may have the right to limit our processing of sensitive personal information to the extent that we use sensitive personal information for any purpose other than: (1) to perform services or provide good reasonably expected by a consumer who requested those goods or services; (2) to detect security incidents provided that the use of personal information is reasonably necessary and proportionate for this purpose; (3) to restrict, malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal actions directed at us and prosecute those responsible for those actions, provided the use of personal information is reasonably necessary and proportionate for this purpose; (4) to ensure the physical safety or natural persons, provided the use of the personal information is necessary and proportionate for this purpose; (5) for short-term transient use, including but not limited to non-personalized advertising shown as part of the consumer's current interaction with us, provided the personal information is not disclosed to another third party and is not used to build a profile about the consumer or otherwise alter the consumer's experience outside the current interaction with us; (6) to perform services on behalf of us, such as maintaining or servicing accounts, providing customer service, processing or fulfilling orders and transactions, verifying customer information, processing payments, providing financing, providing analytic services, providing storage, or providing similar services on behalf of the business; or (7) to verify or maintain the quality or safety of a service or device that is owned, manufactured by, manufactured for, or controlled by us.

We will respond to verifiable requests received from California residents as required by law. The instructions for submitting a verifiable Request to Delete are described below.

• Request to Know: California residents have the right to request and, subject to certain exemptions, receive a copy of the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected, used, disclosed and sold about them in the prior 12 months and to have this delivered, free of charge, either (a) by mail or (b) electronically in a portable and, to the extent technically feasible, readily useable format that allows the individual to transmit this information to another entity without hindrance.

o categories of personal information collected; o categories of sources of personal information; o business and/or commercial purposes for collecting and selling their personal information; o categories of third parties with whom we have shared their personal information; o categories of personal information that we have sold in the preceding 12 months, and for each category identified, the categories of third parties to which we sold that particular category of information; and o categories of personal information disclosed for a business purpose in the preceding 12 months, and for each category identified, the categories of third parties to which we disclosed that particular category of personal information.

• Request to Correct: California residents have the right to request correction of inaccurate personal information that we maintain about them.

• Right to non-discrimination: The CCPA prohibits discrimination against California residents for exercising their rights under the CCPA. Discrimination may exist where a business denies or provides a different level or quality of goods or services, or charges (or suggests that it will charge) different prices, rates, or penalties on residents who exercise their CCPA rights, unless doing so is reasonably related to the value provided to the business by the residents’ data. We do not differentiate or discriminate among users based on their exercise of their rights under the CCPA.

If you are a California resident, you may opt out of the sale or sharing of your personal information by emailing Privacy@geekfinders.com.” If you are a California resident and would like to make a request to exercise your other rights under the CCPA, please email us at Privacy@geekfinders.com, or via the address provided in the “Contact Us” section below.

To verify such requests, we may ask you to provide the following information: 

• For a request to know categories of personal information which we collect, we will verify your identity to a reasonable degree of certainty by matching at least two data points provided by you against information in our systems which are considered reasonably reliable for the purposes of verifying a consumer’s identity. 

• For a request to know specific pieces of personal information or for requests to correct or delete, we will verify your identity to a high degree of certainty by matching at least three pieces of personal information provided by you to personal information maintained in our systems and also by obtaining a signed declaration under penalty of perjury that the requestor is the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request.

Authorized agent requests: An authorized agent can make a CCPA request on a California resident’s behalf by providing either: (1) a power of attorney valid under California law; or (2) proof that the consumer gave the agent signed permission to submit the request. The consumer must also provide either: (1) verification of their own identity with respect to a right to know categories, right to know specific pieces of personal information, or requests to delete which are outlined above; or (2) direct confirmation that the consumer provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request.
