2. Information We Receive
Information you provide to us:
Information about Yourself. When you go onto the Site and/or purchase/download the App, and if you take steps to participate in the Service as an Influencer, you may voluntarily provide personal information such as your name, title and email address, physical address, telephone number, bank account information (for payment), biographical and career information, agenda and location information. In some cases, we may ask for additional information to be able to provide specific business services (e.g., social media marketing services) to you or suggest Subscribers or businesses or Activities that may be of interest to you.
Transactional Information. We may retain the details of every transaction or payment made via the Service or in connection with any Contract entered into via the Service. We require the personal information described above in part in order to be able to process payments from our escrow account to Influencers upon completion of Activities under a Contract. We will retain information about your preferences in your use of the Service, so that we can customize the Service experience for you, increase the value to you as an Influencer, and offer you related business and social media marketing services.
Digital Gifting Suites and Other Opportunities. We also collect information from Influencers about preferences, which we share with Subscribers and business prospects, so that Subscribers can offer business products to Influencers.
Corrections/Information Removal/Opt-Out. If you change your name, e-mail address, postal address, telephone number, bank account, or other personal information, you may update, correct or omit the relevant information by visiting our Site.
Other Information we collect when you interact with the App, Site or Service:
Aggregate Information. GEM collects aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information such as frequency of visits to the App or Site, browser type, etc.). No single person can be identified by this compiled information. GEM uses aggregate information to provide and improve the Service, as well as to monitor, audit and analyze data pertaining to our business metrics.
Cookie Information. We use “cookies” (small pieces of data we store on your computer, mobile phone or other device) to make the Service, Site and App easier to use, make our Service and other services better, and to protect both you and GEM. We store minimal information in cookies and protect this information. (For example, we do not store any complete records or credit card numbers in a cookie). You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use the Service, Site and App.
Use of Pixel Tags/Clear GIFs/Web Beacons. A pixel tag, also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of our website but not on your computer. When you access certain App or Site pages, pixel tags may generate a generic notice of that visit. These usually work in conjunction with cookies, registering when a particular computer visits a particular page. If you turn off cookies, the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous website visit.
3. How We Use Your Information
We use the information we collect to try to provide a safe, efficient and customized experience. Here are some of the details:
To contact you; to enable Subscribers to make products available to Influencers. We may contact you with Service-related announcements from time to time, as well as with business services offers and opportunities as indicated above. We may share information about Subscribers and their products with you, so that they can place business products of possible interest to you in a Digital Gifting Suite or take advantage of other opportunities to make relevant business products available to you.
To manage the Service. We use the information we collect to provide our Service and features to you as well as to provide customer support. We do not share any of your Personal Information or Customer Data relating to your use of the Service with any third parties, except to the Subscribers with whom you are negotiating a Contract, and to any Agents whom we engage to facilitate Activities with Influencers. We also use the information to prevent potentially illegal activities, and to enforce our Terms and Conditions of Service. We also use a variety of technological systems to detect and address fraudulent activity and to prevent abuse such as spam. These efforts may on occasion result in a temporary or permanent suspension or termination of some functions for some users.
Contests/Sweepstakes. From time-to-time, we may request information from users or Subscribers or Influencers for participation in a contest or sweepstakes. Participation is completely voluntary. Accordingly, you retain the choice whether or not to disclose this information. We may request contact information and/or supplementary information on your interests, opinions and preferences. We will use the contact information to notify winners. We may publish the winners’ first name, last initial and city of residence on the Site or in the App. And we may be required by law to share (i) winners’ first name, last name and address with state agencies and (ii) winners’ first and last name with persons requesting such information by mail.
Sharing, Selling and Trading Aggregate Information Collected Online with Third Parties. We may share, sell or trade with third parties the aggregated, non-personal information. However, as stated earlier, this information does not identify you individually.
4. How We Protect Information
Security Pertaining to Your Information. GEM and its state-of-the-art third-party data center take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. However, no App, and no method of transmission over the Internet, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
IN NO EVENT WILL GEM OR ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES OR ANY PARTY INVOLVED IN PROVIDING THE APP, SITE AND SERVICE BE LIABLE IN ANY MANNER WHATSOEVER FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF YOUR ACCESS, USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE APP, SITE AND SERVICE, OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY FAILURE OR PERFORMANCE, ERROR, OMISSION, INTERRUPTION, DEFECT, DELAY IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, COMPUTER VIRUS OR LINE OR SYSTEM FAILURE (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, AND DAMAGES THAT RESULT FROM INACCURACY OF THE INFORMATION OR INCONVENIENCE, DELAY OR LOSS OF THE USE OF THE APP, SITE AND/OR SERVICE). THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS APPLY WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER BASIS, EVEN IF GEM OR ITS AFFILIATES OR ANY OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
Integrity of Your Data. GEM processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Statement. We review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.
