What is Personal Information?
"Personal Information" is any information that can identify you. This may include, but is not limited to, your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, age, gender, marital status, health information, financial status, credit card information and credit history.
What do we collect and Why do we use it?
If you’re just browsing our Site, we don’t collect any Personal Information about you. In order for you to create an account with Digital Paper and use our Services, we need to collect and process some Personal Information. Depending on your use of the Services, that may include:
We treat the personal information above as private by default, so it won’t be displayed on the Site (unless you choose to publicly display applicable information via your account settings), revealed to other Digital Paper users, or rented or sold to anyone unless the data has been anonymised.
Except for your email address, which is required to create your Digital Paper account, you can always opt not to disclose any Personal Information to us, but then you may be unable to use certain features on the Services.
Why do you ask for my date of birth?
If you are a parent or guardian and learn that your minor child has provided us with Personal Information without your consent, please contact us.
Why do we collect and use your email?
We use email as an important way to communicate with you. You can manage your email notification preferences, such as messages and follower alerts, by adjusting your preferences in the Notifications section of your account Settings. You may also opt out or unsubscribe from any future email communications from within a link provided in each email we send you. However, please note that in all cases you will continue to receive all system e-mails (e.g. those regarding forgotten user passwords) and legal notices (e.g. updates to our policies) from us.
What can other Digital Paper users see?
Our Services are designed to help you share information with the Digital Paper community. Any personal information that you voluntarily choose to include in a publicly accessible area of the Service will be available to anyone who has access to that content (including other Digital Paper users), such as your username, name, the description you create, and your location, as well as the messages you post, whether on your profile, people you follow, stories you write, and many other bits of information that result from your use of the Services.
We may use this information to make inferences, like what topics you may be interested in, to develop new products and services for the Digital Paper community, and to customise the content we show you, including ads. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide through Digital Paper public to the rest of the Digital Paper community.
How do we share your Personal Information?
We may share your Personal Information with third-party service providers, but only where it’s necessary to provide any of the Services to you (e.g., email providers, server providers, etc.). When we share data with third-party services that support our delivery of the Services, we require that they protect your Personal Information to the same standards we do.
We do not and will not release, rent or sell your Personal Information, except in the following very limited situations:
- To comply with an applicable law (including investigations of any crime), regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request;
- To protect the rights, property, or safety of Digital Paper, our employees, our users, or the public;
Where do we store your Personal Information?
Personal Information that you submit through the Services may be transferred to countries other than where you reside (for example, to our servers) for processing and storage. In addition, our third party service providers also may process or store your Personal Information on servers outside your country.
By using any of the Services, or submitting any Personal Information via the Services, you authorise Digital Paper and its authorised service providers to use and process your Personal Information in these countries. Please be aware that the privacy protections and the rights of authorities and Government agencies to access your personal information in some of these countries may not be equivalent to those in your country.
Access to your personal information
If you wish to access any Personal Information that we hold about you, or request that we correct or delete the Personal Information that we hold about you. We will comply with such requests to the extent required by law or our policies, and subject to any limitations in our systems.
To access, modify or delete the Personal Information you have provided to us, please log in and update your profile.
How does Digital Paper protect my Personal Information?
We are continuously implementing and updating physical, organisational, contractual and technological security measures to protect your Personal Information from loss, theft, unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. The only employees who are granted access to your Personal Information are those with a business “need-to-know” or whose duties reasonably require such information. On all Digital Paper platforms, we support encryption on all transmissions to protect Personal Information submitted on our Site.
What happens to your Personal Information when you leave Digital Paper?
If you delete your account, all of your public contributions and comments to the Digital Paper community will remain (except that they will be anonymised).
We may share non-personal information publicly and with various third parties like publishers or advertisers. For example, we may share information with advertisers or publicly to show trends about the general use of our Services.
