2. What ‘Personal Information’ do we collect?
While we do not collect Personal Information for Website and App visitors to view our information, other entities may collect such information. We cannot be held responsible for browser cookies or data that your personal devices store or collects on their behalf.
Information we collect when you use the Services. Our internet provider, wix.com may collect information about a User’s device, operating system, internet browser, screen resolution, language and keyboard settings, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, date/time stamps, etc.
In order to join “Groups” and be involved with them we will ask you to register on our site or app to be a “member.” If you register you will be asked to share your Name, Title, Login Email address and optionally, your telephone number. We do not share this information with anyone outside of Munsey and it is asked for solely so you may join groups. When you register to join a group, your information is available only to that group or groups you have signed up for.
3. Why do we collect such ‘Personal Information’
We use your Personal Information for the following purposes:
To provide and operate the Services;
To further develop, customize, expand, and improve our Services, based on Users’ common or personal preferences, experiences and difficulties;
To provide our Users with ongoing customer assistance and technical support;
To be able to contact our Users with general or personalized service-related notices and promotional messages such as “push notifications”
To create aggregated statistical data and other aggregated and/or inferred information, which we may use to provide and improve our respective services;
To provide you with professional assistance.
To enhance our data security and fraud prevention capabilities; and
To comply with any applicable laws and regulations.
4. How we share your ‘Personal Information’
Munsey does not actively “share” your personal data, however, our website provider may use your information to improve their services.
Social Media Features: Our Services may enable you to integrate certain Social Media features, widgets, and single sign on features, such as “Facebook Connect,” or “Google Sign-in” (“Social Media Features”) into your web or mobile sites. These Social Media Features may collect certain Personal Information from your Users-of-Users such as identifiers, including name, alias, unique personal identifier, online identifier, internet protocol address, email address, or other similar identifiers. Social Media Features are hosted either by a third party or directly on our Services.
Please note that in the examples listed above in this Section, Munsey merely acts as an intermediary platform allowing you to procure the services of such Third-Party Services (including, but not limited to, Third Party Developers, Third Party Apps and Social Media Features) with which you are interacting directly, and at your discretion. In this respect, Munsey acts as a service provider to you, disclosing information to the Third-Party Services on your behalf. Munsey will share your Users-of-Users’ Personal Information with Third Parties Services only upon your direction or with your permission and is not, and shall not be, in any way responsible for such Third-Party Services processing of such Personal Information, or liable with respect thereto.
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, however, most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser.
6. Your rights in relation to your ‘Personal Information’
Munsey believes that it is imperative that all Munsey users have control over their Personal Information. Therefore, depending on the way you use the Munsey’s Services, you may have the right to request access to, receive a copy of, update, amend or delete, port certain Personal Information to another service, restrict, or object to certain uses of your Personal Information (for example, for direct marketing purposes). Further, when we rely on your consent for processing of your Personal Information (for instance, for direct marketing) you can withdraw your consent at any time, and such withdrawal will take effect from thereon.
If you are a Munsey.org user, you can access and correct a lot of your Personal Information directly through your account.
You have the right to file a complaint with your local supervisory authority for data protection (but we still recommend that you contact us first).
Please note that permanently deleting your Munsey account erases all of your Personal Information from our databases. After completing this process, you can no longer use any of your Services, your account and all its data will be removed permanently, and Munsey will not be able to restore your account or retrieve your data in the future. If you contact our support channels in the future, the system will not recognize your account and our IT personnel will not be able to locate the deleted account.
7. Questions and complaints
8. Data retention
We may continue to retain your Personal Information after you deactivate your User Account and/or cease to use any particular Services, as reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes regarding our Users or their Users-of-Users, prevent fraud and abuse, enforce our agreements and/or protect our legitimate interests.
To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of such data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of such data, the purposes for which we process it, and the applicable legal requirements.
Munsey has implemented security measures designed to protect the Personal Information you share with us, including physical, electronic and procedural measures. Among other things, we offer HTTPS secure access to most areas on our Services; the transmission of sensitive payment information (such as a credit card number) through our designated “give” forms is protected by an industry standard SSL/TLS encrypted connection; and we regularly maintain a PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) certification. We also regularly monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and regularly seek new ways and Third-Party Services for further enhancing the security of our Services and protection of our Visitors’ and Users’ privacy.
Regardless of the measures and efforts taken by Munsey, we cannot and do not guarantee the absolute protection and security of your Personal Information, your Users-of-Users’ Personal Information or any other information you upload, publish or otherwise share with Munsey or anyone else. We encourage you to set strong passwords for your User Account and User Website, and avoid providing us or anyone with any sensitive Personal 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 (for example, you browse to a non-SSL page), 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.
If you have any questions regarding the security of our Services, you are welcome to contact us.
10. Third-party websites
11. Public forums and user content
Our Services offer publicly accessible blogs, communities and support forums. Please be aware that any Personal Information you provide in any such areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. To request removal of your Personal Information from our blogs, communities or forums, feel free to contact us here. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your Personal Information from such areas. For example, if you use a third-party application to post a comment (e.g., the Facebook social plugin application) while logged in to your related profile with such third party, you must login into such application or contact its provider if you want to remove the Personal Information you posted on that platform.
In any event, we advise against posting any Personal Information (via any means) you don’t wish to publicize.
If you upload any user content to your User Account or post it and provide it in any other way as part of the use of any Service, you do so at your own risk.
We have put adequate security measures in place to protect your Personal Information. However, we cannot control the actions of other Users or members of the public who may access your User Content, and are not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures due to this. You understand and acknowledge that, even after its removal by you or us, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if any third parties have copied or stored such User Content. To clarify, we advise against uploading or posting any information you do not wish to be public.
