Privacy Policy

 

Effective Date: May 25, 2018

 

Welcome to Olgatsubiks.com’s Privacy Policy!

 

Olgatsubiks.com cares deeply about the privacy of its visitors and users and is fully committed to protect their personal information and use it properly in compliance with data privacy laws. This policy describes how we may collect and use personal information, and the rights and choices available to our visitors and users regarding such information.

 

We strongly urge you to read this policy and make sure you fully understand it, before you access or use any of our services. 

 

1. Introduction

 

This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how we (Olgatsubiks.com, – “we” or “us”) collect and use information pertaining to each of our unregistered visitors and registered users, including users with Paid Services (each, a “Visitor” or “User” (respectively), or “you”), in connection with their access to and use of this website (including www.olgatsubiks.com and dataforacause.org and any of its subdomains, the “Website”), web applications, and related services (collectively, the “Services”).

 

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to provide you with a clear explanation of when, why and how we collect and use your personal information, as well as an explanation of your statutory rights.  This Privacy Policy is not intended to override the terms of any contract you have with us, nor any rights you might have under applicable data privacy laws.

 

Read this policy and make sure you fully understand our practices in relation to your personal information, before you access or use any of our Services.  If you read and fully understand this Privacy Policy, and remain opposed to our practices, you must immediately leave this website, application or service, and avoid or discontinue all use of any of our Services.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy, please contact us.

 

2. What information do we collect?

 

We collect two types of information regarding our Visitors and Users:

 

2.1. Un-identified and non-identifiable information pertaining to a Visitor or un-identified User, which may be made available to us, or collected automatically via his/her use of the Services (“Non-personal Information”). Such Non-personal Information does not enable us to identify the Visitor or User from whom it was collected. The Non-personal Information collected by us mainly consists of technical and aggregated usage information, such as Visitors’ and Users’ browsing and ‘click-stream’ activity on the Services, session heatmaps and scrolls, non-identifying information regarding the Visitor’s or User’s device, operating system, internet browser, screen resolution, language and keyboard settings, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, date/time stamps, etc.

 

2.2 Individually identifiable information, namely information that identifies an individual or may with reasonable efforts cause the identification of an individual, or may be of private or sensitive nature (“Personal Information”). The Personal Information collected by us mainly consists of contact details (e.g., e-mail, name), which are only collected from registered Users with Services, details regarding a browsing or usage session (IP address, Geo-location and/or device unique identifier), correspondences (including those made through our Services), and any other Personal Information provided to us by Visitors and/or Users through their access to and/or use of the Services. For the avoidance of doubt, any Non-personal Information that is connected or linked to Personal Information (for example, in order to improve the Services we offer) is deemed and treated by us as Personal Information, as long as such connection or linkage exists.

 

We also collect information that is provided to us by Data for a Cause participants (“Participants”), when they fill up a form at https://www.olgatsubiks.com/featured-member.

 

3. How do we collect such information?

 

There are two main methods we use:

 

3.1. We collect information through your use of the Services. When you visit or use our Services, including when you browse the Website, sign up for services, and upload information and content, and/or use any website applications, we are aware of it and will usually gather, collect and record such uses, sessions and related information, either independently or with the help of third-party services as detailed below, including through the use of “cookies” and other tracking technologies, as further detailed below.

 

3.2. We collect information which you provide us voluntarily. For example, we collect the Personal Information you provide us when you sign up to our Services; when you submit or upload such Personal Information as you use any of our Services; and/or when you contact us directly by any communication channel (e.g., contact form, emails). 

 

4. Why do we collect such information?

 

We collect such Non-personal and Personal Information for the following purposes:

  1. To provide and operate the Services;

  2. To further develop, customize and improve our Services, based on Visitors’ and Users’ common or personal preferences, experiences and difficulties;

  4. To be able to contact our Visitors and Users with general or personalized service-related notices and informational messages;

  5. To facilitate, sponsor and offer certain contests, events and promotions, determine participants’ eligibility, monitor performance, contact winners;

  6. To create aggregated statistical data and other aggregated and/or inferred Non-personal Information, which we may use to provide and improve our respective services;

  7. To consider Participant’s candidacy for Data for a Cause; and

  8. To comply with any applicable laws and regulations.

 

 

We will only use your Personal Information for the purposes set out in Section 4 where we are satisfied that:

Olgatsubiks.com, together with its Partners, uses certain monitoring and tracking technologies (such as cookies, beacons, pixels, tags and scripts). These technologies are used in order to maintain, provide and improve our Services on an ongoing basis, and in order to provide our Visitors,  and our Users with a better experience. For example, thanks to these technologies, we are able to maintain and keep track of our Visitor’s and Users’ sessions, to better secure our Services, to identify technical issues, user trends and effectiveness of campaigns, and to monitor and improve the overall performance of our Services.

 

Please note that Third Party Services placing cookies or utilizing other tracking technologies through our Services may have their own policies regarding how they collect and store information. Such practices are not covered by our Privacy Policy and we do not have any control over them. 

 

Cookies: In order for some of these technologies to work properly, a small data file (“cookie”) must be downloaded and stored on your device. 

If you want to delete or block any cookies, please refer to the help and support area on your internet browser for instructions on how to locate the file or directory that stores cookies.

Web Beacons/Web Bugs), which enables them and us to improve our Services by measuring their effectiveness and performance. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, however are not stored on your device, but instead embedded within our Services.

 

Flash and HTML5: We and certain Third Party Services may also employ certain tracking technologies known as “Flash cookies” and “HTML5”, mainly for advertising purposes. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing or blocking such technologies.

 

 

 

“Do Not Track” Signals: Please note that we do not change our practices in response to a “Do Not Track” signal in the HTTP header from a browser or mobile application.

 

8. Communications

 

We may use your Personal Information to send you promotional content and messages by e-mail and similar forms of communication from us or our partners (acting on our behalf) through such means. If you do not wish to receive such promotional messages you may notify us at any time or follow the “unsubscribe” instructions contained in the promotional communications you receive.

We, therefore, encourage you to set strong passwords and avoid providing us or anyone with any sensitive information of which you believe its disclosure could cause you substantial or irreparable harm. Furthermore, because certain areas on our Services are less secure than others, and since e-mail and instant messaging are not recognized as secure forms of communications, we request and encourage you not to share any Personal Information on any of these areas or via any of these methods.
