We may also collect technical information to help us identify your device for fraud prevention and diagnostic purposes.
We automatically collect certain information when you visit, use, or navigate the platform. This information does not reveal your specific identity (like your name of contact information) but may include device and usage information, such as your IP address, browser and device characteristics, operating system, language preference, referring URLs, device name, country, location, information about who and when you use our services and other technical information. This information is primarily needed to maintain the security and operation of our website, and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes.
How do we use the information we collect?
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one or all of the following ways:
When do we use information from third parties?
We receive some information from third parties when you contact us. For example, when you submit your email address to us to show interest in our advocacies, we receive information from a third party that provides automated fraud detection services to us. We also occasionally collect information that is made publicly available on social media websites. You can control how much of your information on social media can be made public by visiting these websites and changing your privacy settings.
Do we share the information we collect from third parties?
We may share the information that we collect, both personal and non-personal, with third parties such as advertisers, content sponsors, promotional and marketing program, and others who provide our content or whose services we think may interest you. We may also share it with our current business and future affiliated companies and business partners, and if we are involved in a merger, asset sale or other business reorganization, we may also share or transfer your personal and non-personal information to our successors-in-interest.
We may also engage trusted third-party service providers to perform functions and provide services to us, such as hosting and maintaining our servers and services, database storage and management, e-mail management, storage marketing, credit card processing, and fulfilling requests for services. We will likely share your personal information and possibly some non-personal information, with these third parties to enable them to perform such services for you and for us.
We may share portions of our log file data, including IP addresses, or analytics purposes with third parties such as web analytics partners, application developers, and ad networks. If your IP address is shared, it may be used to estimate general location and other technographics such as connection speed, whether you have visited the service in a shared location, and type of device used to visit the service. They may aggregate information about our advertising and what you see on the service and then provide auditing, research and reporting for us and our advertisers.
We may also disclose personal and non-personal information about you to government and law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate in order to respond to claims, legal process (including subpoenas), to protect our rights and interests or those of a third party, the safety of the public or any person, to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity or otherwise comply with applicable court orders, laws, rules and regulations.
Where and when is information collected from users?
We will collect personal information that you submit to us. We may also receive personal information about you from third parties as described above.
Is the information collected through our service secure?
We take precautions to protect the security of your information. We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help safeguard, prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use your information. However, neither people nor security systems are fool proof, including encryption systems. In addition, people can commit international crimes, make mistakes, or fail to follow policies. Therefore, while we use reasonable efforts to protect your personal, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If applicable law imposes any non-disclaimable duty to protect your personal information, you agree that intentional misconduct will be the standards used to measure our compliance with that duty.
Can I update or correct my personal information?
The rights you have to request updates or corrections to the information we collect depend on your relationship with us. Personnel may update or correct information as detailed in our internal company employment policies. Users have the right to request the restriction of certain uses and disclosures of personally identifiable information as follows:
You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times. You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our system. The need to back up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss mans that a copy of your information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. Promptly after receiving your request, all personal information stored in databases we actively use will be updated, corrected, changed, or deleted, as appropriate, as soon as and to the extend reasonably and technically practicable. If you are an end-user and wish to update, delete, or receive any information that we have about you, you may do so by contacting us or the organization of which you are a member.
How long do we keep your information?
We keep your information only so long as we need it to provide service and to fulfil the purposes described in this policy. This is also the case for anyone that we share information with and who carries out services on our behalf. When we no longer need to use your information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we’ll either remove it from our system or depersonalize it so that we can’t identify you.
How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access our website. We offer the use of a secure server, so all supplied sensitive information is transmitted via a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our gateway provider’s database only to be accessible by those with special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential. Your private information is never kept on file. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the absolute security of any information that you transmit to us or guarantee that information on the service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by a breach of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
The laws of the Republic of the Philippines, excluding its conflicts of law rules, shall govern this Agreement and your use of our service. Your use of our service may also be subject to other local, national, or international laws.
