We value your comments about our privacy statement and invite you to e-mail us with inquiries, suggestions and complaints at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED
In order to enhance your user experience and improve the Common Desk Services, Common Desk collects information about you from two sources: (i) information you affirmatively give to us; and (ii) information automatically collected when you visit any of the Common Desk Websites or use any Common Desk Services. Third parties may also collect your information in connection with your use of Common Desk Services.
INFORMATION YOU GIVE US
When users sign up for Common Desk, the website asks for an email address and if you sign up to be a Member, credit card information.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AUTOMATICALLY
HOW INFORMATION IS USED
Common Desk uses the information it collects from you to deliver Common Desk Services to you and to continuously enhance your user experience. Generally speaking, we use the collected information to communicate with you, fulfill your requests, customize the content, improve our products and services, protect our and your rights, and comply with laws and regulations.
We may use your personal information to send you promotional information and updates regarding Common Desk and its products and services. You may choose not to receive such information and opt-out of such future communications by emailing the local Common Desk staff. All such communications sent to you will also contain instructions for opting-out.
The information that we collect from you may be used in aggregate form in various ways to optimize and improve Common Desk Services. While such information may be based on information about you, it will not identify you personally. We may use such information for the following purposes: website management, administration and security, promotional activities, and research and analysis.
WITH WHOM INFORMATION IS SHARED
Public Information – Common Desk may share as it sees fit information that you voluntarily make public, including debate videos, and comments. Since such public information can be accessed by the public and used by any member of the public, such use by third parties is beyond the control of Common Desk.
Personal Information – If we have your express consent, Common Desk may share your personal information that it collects with business partners and other third parties that are not affiliated with Common Desk. Note that if you sign up for service from one of our affiliates, we may ask for your consent to share with such third party partners certain personal information. While Common Desk is not responsible for the acts of such partners, we encourage all of our partners to adopt privacy policies that protect against the disclosure of personal information to third persons.
Under narrow circumstances, Common Desk may disclose your personal information without asking for your consent to protect the legal rights of Common Desk or its affiliates, and each of their respective investors, directors, officers, employees, agents, and suppliers; to protect the safety and security of users of the Common Desk Services or to enforce our Terms of Services; to protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or to comply with or respond to the law or legal process or a request for cooperation by a government entity, whether or not legally required. If you notify us that you believe your legal rights have been violated by Common Desk or another user of the Common Desk Services, we may provide the information that you provide to us to others to the extent that we believe it is necessary to evaluate and respond to your complaint.
NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION AND AGGREGATE DATA
Common Desk may share with third parties your personal information and related aggregated data. For example, Common Desk may share IP addresses or general demographic information of its users to provide anonymous aggregated data to business partners about the volume of use on Common Desk Services and the specific Common Desk Services in which users are most interested. Because this form of data does not identify particular users, these third parties will not be able to contact you based solely on this data.
CHANGE OF CONTROL
If Common Desk sells all or part of its business, makes a sale or transfer of assets, is otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy, Common Desk may transfer your personal information and non-personal information to one or more third parties as part of such transaction.
HOW YOU CAN CONTROL THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT, USE AND SHARE
You have the choice about whether to disclose your personal information or other information about yourself to Common Desk. Regardless of your choices with respect to promotional communications and updates regarding content, Common Desk may send you administrative messages, service announcements, terms and conditions of your account, or other similar communications, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them.
You may stop using your account on Common Desk.com at any time by simply logging out. Please note that if you cancel your account, Common Desk may retain some information about you but will discontinue posting such information on the Common Desk Websites.
