We believe that you have a right to know our practices regarding the information we may collect and use when you visit and/or use our Platform.
1. Your Consent (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!)
FOR AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, YOU HEREBY CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION, PROCESSING, TRANSFER AND USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. YOU ALSO ACKNOWLEDGE AND CONFIRM THAT YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO PROVIDE US WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND THAT SUCH INFORMATION IS VOLUNTARILY PROVIDED TO US.
2. Which information we may collect on our Users?
We may collect two types of data and information from our Users:
a. Non-personal Information. The first type of information is non-identifiable and anonymous information (“Non-personal Information”). We are not aware of the identity of the User from whom we have collected the Non-personal Information. Non-personal Information is any unconcealed information which does not enable identification of an individual User, and which is available to us while such User is entering into and/or using the Platform. Non-personal Information which is being gathered consists of technical information, behavioral information and aggregated information (including aggregated information relating to purchases on the Platform), and may contain, among other things, the activity of the User on the Platform, type of operating system, User’s ‘click-stream’ or searches on the Platform, type and version of browser, keyboard language, screen resolution, time spent on various screens of the Platform, etc.
b. Personal Information. The second type of information is individually identifiable information (“Personal Information”). This information may identify an individual or may be of a private and/or sensitive nature, including the following:
· Users of the Platform automatically provide their IP address (or Mac Address, as applicable) mainly for enhancing the User’s experience and for geo-location and security purposes as further detailed below.
· In addition, Personal Information which is being gathered consists of any personal details provided consciously and voluntarily by the User:
· When Users open an Account, they are required to provide their full name, e-mail address, shipping address and to choose a password. Additional identifiable information may be requested in the future.
· Alternatively, you may sign up to the Platform via one of your existing third party services accounts (e.g. Facebook or Google+). When you register to the Platform through such existing third party account, then the latter provide us with access to certain information, which is detailed and displayed to you in the notice, which appears during the integration process (which usually includes your name, email address, profile photo and user-id on such third party account). Please read carefully such notice in order to understand what information is made available to us via your third party accounts. We may collect your login information and other relevant information necessary to enable us to access your third party accounts in order to collect the abovementioned information. We may store the above-mentioned information (or any part of it), in order to achieve the purposes set forth herein.
If you are a Seller and already have existing online store account(s), you may be able to connect your Ecorigem Account with these third party accounts.
Please remember that the manner in which third party accounts use, store or disclose your information is governed solely by their policies and we will have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of such third parties. If you do not agree to these practices please do not use third party accounts in order to use our Platform.
· For the purpose of offering Products (as a Seller), or purchasing Products (as a Customer), the User will be required to provide their full name, email address, phone number, accurate delivery address and other contact information. The foregoing information (together with other details relating to the ordered Products) will be disclosed to the applicable Seller(s).
· Personal Information is collected from the details the Users provide in contact forms on the Platform, when requesting technical support via the support page on the Platform and/or when communicating, by any means, with Ecorigem. Such Personal Information may include, inter alia, your name, email address and telephone number. You may optionally provide via a contact form any text you wish to insert into the “message” box. Additional information may be requested via a contact form in the future.
· When using the Platform, Users will have the option to use certain Online Payment Processors (as defined below) will require Users to fill out a billing form wherein the User will be required to provide to such Online Payment Processors certain Personal Information (such as, a credit card number and other related billing information) (see Section 7 below regarding the payment method). We will not store such information on our servers. We only keep token information such Online Payment Processors provide us with (and where applicable, the last four digits of your credit card number), and such information is strictly secured.
For avoidance of doubt, any Non-personal Information connected or linked to any Personal Information shall be deemed as Personal Information as long as such connection, linkage or association exists.
