Your privacy, and the privacy of all Influenster users is important to us. Influenster is committed to protecting your privacy online and to complying with the requirements of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, or “GDPR”.

The terms “You” and “Your” refer to you, as a visitor or user of the Service. This Privacy Policy is intended for and only applicable to site visitors, registered users, and all other users of the Service in the European Union.

Further, you acknowledge that this Privacy Policy is part of our Terms of Service (“TOS”), which is incorporated by reference, and by accessing or using the Service, you agree to be bound by all of its terms and conditions.

PERSONAL DATA: WHAT WE COLLECT.

 

Account Setup: When registering as a user to the Service, we receive and store information you enter or provide to us in any other way. The types of personal data collected may include or be included in the following:

   

VoxBox Pre-Surveys: You may be asked to provide additional personal data through the VoxBox pre-survey process. This is when we determine whether you are eligible to be selected for a VoxBox or other promotional campaign.

 

Profiles and Reviews: “Public Content” refers to information that you submit or post to the Service for public display, such as photos, comments, reviews, and your public profile information. To the extent you include personal data in your Public Content (such as a photo of yourself), third parties may be able to identify you, associate you with your account, and contact you. Individuals reading this information may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. We therefore urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in any Public Content.

We may also draw upon this personal data in order to adapt the Service to better meet user needs, to research the effectiveness of our network and Services, and to develop new tools for the community.

 

For Marketing: We may use your personal data to contact you or have third parties contact you on our behalf for the purpose of marketing products and services. By checking the box below, you expressly consent to any such communications.

Third Party Disclosures. We encourage our service partners and other third parties to adopt and post privacy policies. However, the use of your personal data by our service partners and other third parties is governed by the privacy policies of those service partners or third parties, and is not subject to our control.

Processing of personal data happens in strict accordance with our company’s data governance program, which includes implementing reasonable organizational and technical safeguards to protect personal data from unauthorized use, disclosure, or destruction. Such organizational safeguards include binding our trusted third parties to contracts and requiring the same or better organizational or technical safeguards for your personal data.

 
COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
 

The Service does use cookies. All Influenster cookies are administered in accordance with our cookie policy provided through OneTrust here. We send cookies to your computer or mobile device through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our site are visited and by how many people. Most browsers have an option for disabling the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting cookies, as well as (depending on your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of cookies in a variety of ways. If you later choose to reject cookies, please be advised that you will need to take additional steps in accordance with your browser and/or device settings to permanently remove any existing cookies from your computer or device.

 

Ads and other content appearing on the Service may be delivered to users by our advertising partners and your connected social media networks such as Facebook and Instagram, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad or social media network server to recognize your computer or device each time they send you an online advertisement or otherwise interact with your computer or device to compile information about you or others who use your computer or device. This information allows ad and social media networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements and other content that they believe will be of most interest to you, and in the case of social media networks, redirect you to their website for purposes of logging you in to the Service. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by us and our service providers and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers or social media networks.

 

We use analytics (and related analytics programs) to better understand who is using the Service, and how people are using it. Analytics uses cookies to collect and store anonymous information such as time of visit, pages visited, time spent on each page of the website, IP address, and type of operating system used. We use this information to improve the Service and make it appealing to as many users as possible.

 
SECURITY
 

Your account is password protected for your privacy and security. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your account and personal data by selecting and protecting your password and limiting access to your computer, phone and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.

 
INTERNATIONAL USERS
 

The Service is located on computer servers in the United States [and around the world], meaning your information will be processed and stored in the United States and elsewhere. As a result, United States federal and state governments, courts, or law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your information through laws applicable in the United States. By checking the box below, you knowingly and expressly consent to the transfer of your personal data outside of your home country, including to the United States, which may provide for different data protection rules than in your country.

The Service is not directed toward children under 16 years of age nor do we knowingly collect information from children under 16. If you are under 16 years of age, you are not permitted to submit any personal data to us.

 
PRIVACY PRACTICES OF THIRD PARTIES AND THIRD PARTY SITES
 

The Service may contain links to third party websites to which we have no affiliation. Except as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. Other sites accessible through our site via links or service partnerships have their own privacy policies and data collection, use and disclosure practices. Please consult each site’s privacy policy. We are not responsible for the policies or practices of third parties. Additionally, other companies may place advertising on our site and may collect information about you when you view or click on their advertising through the use of cookies.
