We believe in the importance of being able to control who gets what information
We believe in the importance of being able to control who gets what information. This not only means you want your coworker to have your work email, and your friend to have your personal phone number, but it also means there are people who shouldn’t have any of your information.
We’ve made several choices in how GRID is built to ensure only the people you choose to share with getting the details you choose to share.
Please read the following carefully to understand how we will collect, use, and maintain your personal information. It also describes your choices regarding the use, access, and correction of your personal information.
GRID organizes and provides efficient means to access and receive updates regarding your contacts, and to share your own information with your contacts. The GRID Service may additionally connect with third-party software platforms which you have authorized to connect with GRID (“Third Party Platforms”).
“Personal Information” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number or e-mail address, an identification number, location information, an online identifier, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
“Sensitive Personal Information” means racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union members, the processing of genetic, biometric data for purposes of uniquely identifying a natural person, and information concerning an individual’s health, sex life, or sexual orientation. We treat your Personal Information and Sensitive Personal Information as confidential.
“Other Information” is any information that is not Personal Information or Sensitive Personal Information. Personal Information does not include anonymized or “aggregate” information, or publicly available information that has not been combined with Personal Information or Sensitive Personal Information.
We may collect your Personal Information in the following circumstances:
When you utilize the Service, we also receive certain Other Information about you or your use of the Service. Such Other Information may be collected using various technologies, including:
Logs: We track the data you see in GRID and how you interact with it by automatically collecting certain information such as the pages you visit or features you use within the Service, the date and time of your activities on the Service, the URLs from the websites you visit before and after navigating to the Service, your software and hardware attributes (including operating system type and version, App version, device type, and device identifiers, including IDFA and/or Advertising IDs), your browser type and version, and your general geographic location derived through your IP address (e.g., your city, state, or metropolitan region). To obtain such information, we may use web logs or applications that recognize your device and gather information about its online activity. We treat this information as confidential if we combine it with or link it to any of your Personal Information. We use tracking data about individuals to inform us about how GRID is being used to help us provide a better user experience.
Web beacons: The Service or the emails that you receive from us may use an application known as a “web beacon” (also known as a “clear gif” or “pixel tag”). A web beacon is an electronic file that usually consists of a single-pixel image. It can be embedded in a web page or in an email to transmit information. For example, it allows an email sender to determine whether a user has opened a particular email.
Local storage: We may collect and store information (including Personal Information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
GRID keeps Personal Information contained in your cookies and obtained through the other tracking technologies confidential. We do not set any cookies outside of the GRID.me domain.
We also may partner with certain third parties to collect, analyze, and use some of the Personal and Other Information described in this section. For example, we may allow third parties to set cookies or use web beacons on the Service or in email communications from GRID. This information may be used for a variety of purposes, including analytics.
We use your Personal Information and Other Information collected through our Service for the following purposes:
GRID exists to make your professional network more actionable, not to sell your data. However, we share personal information as follows:
You may choose to provide us with another person’s email address so that person may be invited to create an account on our Service. By providing us with another person’s email address, you represent to us that you have obtained the consent of the person concerned as regards such disclosure to us of that email address. We may disclose such information if required to do so in order to comply with legal process, as described above.
We use reasonable physical, technical, and administrative security measures to protect your Personal Information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse.
You may withdraw your consent to process your Personal Information at any time by providing written notice to us at privacy@GRID.me. If you do so, you will be unable to use the Service.
You may “opt out” of receiving marketing or promotional communications from us by following the instructions in those communications or by emailing us at privacy@GRID.me. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as emails about your GRID account or our ongoing business relations.
You may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in your account from within the Service itself or by contacting us at privacy@GRID.me. You also authorize us, on your behalf, and in accordance with your account preferences to delete information when not reasonably needed for the Service. If you have shared your Personal or Other Information with others and they have not deleted it, or it was copied or stored by other users, GRID will not be obligated to delete such information.
We retain information for as long as reasonably necessary to deliver our Service to you or to fulfill the purposes described in this Policy. You may delete the Personal Information in your account as described above. Please note that, in limited circumstances, we may retain information for a longer period of time as required by law.
We will only collect and process Personal Information about you where we have lawful bases. Our lawful bases include consent (where you have given consent), contract (where processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you, such as when you purchase a subscription to the Service) and our legitimate interests (such as to comply with applicable laws and enable or administer our business).
Our Services are not directed to individuals under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with Personal Information, he or she should contact us at privacy@GRID.me. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will take steps to delete such information from our files.
