Effective Date: November 11, 2017
This Privacy Statement describes the type of information that Project OTY (“Project OTY” or “we”) collects through your use of our website and Project OTY platform (collectively, the “Services”). This Statement does not apply to information collected about you through any other means, including information collected by third parties or through non-electronic or offline means (including phone).
This Statement covers:
By accessing or using the Services, or by clicking the “accept” button when you register to use a Service, you consent to our use of your personal information as described in this Statement. This Statement may change from time to time. Your continued use of a Service after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the statement periodically for updates.
This Statement is part of, and is governed by, the Project OTY Terms of Service.
A. Information We Collect
We collect information from you in two ways. First, you provide us with certain information when you register for and use our Services. Second, we collect certain information automatically as you interact with our Services.
1. Information You Provide to Us
We may collect this information from you when you register as a user, sign up to receive newsletters, interact with us on our social media channels, submit content or send us feedback. Project OTY is a voluntary service; if you do not want us to collect this information, please do not use the Services. We directly collect the following types of information that you provide to us:
2. Information We Automatically Collect from You When You Use the Services
Information that may be collected by cookies when you use the Services may include, without limitation:
You can delete cookie files from your hard drive, or avoid them altogether, by configuring your browser to reject them or to notify you when a cookie is being placed on your hard drive. Not all features of the Services will function as intended if you reject cookies.
The information we collect automatically is statistical information and may include personal information, or we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties. If you do not want us to collect this information, do not download the app or use the Services, and delete the app from your device.
B. Do Not Track Requests
Your Internet browser and mobile device may allow you to adjust your browser settings so that “do not track” requests are sent to the websites you visit. Project OTY honors “do not track” requests.
C. How We Use the Information We Collect
We may use information collected from or about you for any of the following purposes:
We may also combine information we collect about you through the Services with other information about you that we receive from third-party sources. By way of example and not limitation, we may use a change of address or other list service to ensure that our records for your account are accurate.
D. How We Share Your Information with Third Parties.
While you may share Roadmap Data with third parties that you designate, Project OTY never shares personalized Roadmap Data with third parties without your consent. We may share other information we collect in connection with the Services with the following third parties:
1. Service Providers
We may share your personal information with our third-party distributors, vendors, suppliers and other service providers who provide services to us or on our behalf, such as operating and supporting the Services, performing marketing or consulting services, assisting us with the preparation and mailing of our business and marketing communications, and with service processing and fulfillment functions. These third-party service providers are contractually restricted from using your personal information for their own marketing purposes.
2. Third-Party Analytics Providers
We may also share your personal information with third parties who conduct marketing studies and data analytics. These third parties may combine your information with the information of other consumers for purposes of conducting these studies and/or analytics. For example, Google Analytics helps us understand how many people use the Services, where the users live, and which content is most popular. Read more about how Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps.
3. Our Affiliates
We may share some or all of your information with our subsidiaries and corporate affiliates, joint venturers, or other companies that are or may become under common control with us. We will require these entities to comply with the terms of this Statement with regard to their use of your information.
4. Transfer or Assignment in Connection with Business Transfers or Bankruptcy
5. Response to Subpoenas or Court Orders or to Protect Rights
We may disclose your information to government authorities or third parties if:
6. Aggregate Information
We may share aggregate or de-identified information without restriction. While this information will not identify you personally, in some instances these third parties may be able to combine this aggregate information with other data they have about you, or that they receive from third parties, in a manner that allows them to identify you personally.
E. Your Choices
We provide the opportunity to opt out of receiving communications from us and our partners at the point where we request information about you. In addition, you may unsubscribe or opt out of receiving communications from us by clicking the unsubscribe link on any email marketing communication you receive.
You may choose not to share your location details with us by adjusting your location services settings. For instructions on changing these settings, contact your service provider or mobile device manufacturer. If you choose not to share your location details with us, you will be denied access to certain Services, or parts of them.
F. California Privacy Rights
Project OTY does not allow third parties to use your personal information for their own marketing purposes, so California Civil Code sections 1798.83-1798.84 does not apply.
G. How We Protect Your Information
We have implemented commercially reasonable measures designed to secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. For example, database information is kept separate from live servers, and is firewall protected. However, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. You acknowledge that: (a) the limitations of the Internet are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of information and data exchanged between you and us cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party. Project OTY has no responsibility or liability for the security of information transmitted via the Internet.
H. No Use by Children
The Services are not intended for users younger than 13. We do not knowingly collect contact information from children under the age of 13 without verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that a visitor under the age of 13 has submitted personal information without verifiable parental consent, we will remove his or her information from our files.
I. Use of Information Outside Your Country of Residence
The Services are directed to users located in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States and choose to use the Services or provide your information to us, you should be aware that we may transfer your information to the United States and process it there. The privacy laws in the United States may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. Your consent to this Privacy Statement followed by your submission of information to us through or in connection with the Services represents your agreement to the transfer of your information to the United States.
J. Changes to This Privacy Statement
We may change this Privacy Statement from time to time. If we decide to make a material change in our Privacy Statement, we will post it on this page. Your continued use of the Services after the posting of changes to this Privacy Statement will mean you accept these changes. In some cases, we may attempt to contact you through an email or other address you have provided, so we can give you choices about our using your information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection. If we make any material changes in our privacy practices that affect your personally identifiable information that is already in our possession, we will apply those changes to that older information only with your consent or as otherwise allowed by law.
