Effective Date: March 8, 2021
We at PRIVACY BOOTCAMP LLC (“Privacy Bootcamp”, “we”, or “us”) are committed to protecting your privacy when you use our online and/or mobile services, websites, software, and applications (collectively, the “Services”). You can access the Services without disclosing any of your personally identifying information. Privacy Bootcamp does not collect personal information about individuals, such as names and mailing or e-mail addresses, unless it is knowingly provided by the individual and he or she has agreed to the terms under which Privacy Bootcamp will use it.
We collect information about our users when: (1) you give it to us knowingly and freely; (2) you post content in our Services or via our social media accounts; and (3) sometimes automatically (for example, certain technical information that transfers when you view our sites or applications on your phone, mobile device, or computer).
When you use Privacy Bootcamp, and certain of our Services, we receive and collect certain technical information automatically. This includes information such as the type of device you are using (e.g., computer or mobile device); the version of the operating system running on the device; the referring page, if any, by which a visitor arrived at a specific URL; and unique identifier details for your device such as the IP address (a unique number that identifies the computer you are using to accessing the internet), or IMEI number (a unique number that identifies your mobile phone). However, we do not use this information to identify you as an individual.
We consider the collection of this information necessary either to process and administer your contractual use of the Services, or for our legitimate interests in operating and improving the Services (including personalizing your user experience). We use this information in a number of ways, including: (1) to display information correctly on your screen; (2) to compile and provide aggregate statistics about our users and visitors; (3) to compile and provide traffic patterns so that we may better understand how visitors use our Services; and (4) to administer our site. This data will only be shared with third parties who assist us to provide these services to you. This data may be cached on your device for short periods of time in order to improve user experience and make our Services more responsive.
Other than technical data that we collect automatically, we collect only the personal data that you may volunteer while using our services. We do not collect information about our visitors from other sources, such as public records or bodies, or private organizations. We may release personal or account information when such release is reasonably necessary to comply with the law; enforce the terms of any of our user agreements; or protect the rights, property, and safety of Privacy Bootcamp, the users of our Services, or others. We may give your information to our staff and contractors when necessary. Wherever we give your personal or account information to a person or business who is not Privacy Bootcamp, we only do so for one of the purposes set out in this notice. And we always ensure that we have appropriate safeguards in place (such as agreements setting out our obligations and any third-parties’ obligations when using your information) before sharing your information in order to ensure that your information is protected.
Privacy Bootcamp does not sell the personal information of its users to third parties.
Although the Services provide for anonymous or pseudonymous participation, in some instances in order to use certain aspects or features of the Services, we require account registration. This requires a name associated with your account, an email address at which we can contact you, and a password to help secure your personal and account information. We may also request from time to time that users provide certain information on an optional basis (e.g., the name of your employer or job title) in order for us to better understand our users. We use both this mandatory and optional information provided at the time of account registration (or as modified by the account holder thereafter) or in response to user surveys in a number of ways, including: (1) to receive and reply to feedback from you; (2) to personalize or improve the way our Services are provided and presented to you; and (3) to send you emails containing relevant information, surveys, marketing, and advertisements. You can unsubscribe from receiving certain types of emails, including marketing or advertisement emails, at the end of every email you receive or through visiting your Account Settings page. We process your information in this way because we believe it is in our legitimate interest to do so.
Where you contact us to ask for help to resolve an issue on our Services we may ask for your name, your email address, other account information, and any information you choose to give us as part of servicing your request, including a textual description of your issue, and screenshots of the issue you may be seeing. When you submit your request, we may also collect technical information from your device to assist us to solve your issue. This includes things like the device you are using and the operating system used by your device. We may also receive information about all the screens you visited before an error appeared and the order in which you visited them. All of this information is only used to assist us in solving any bugs that you may be experiencing.
You may choose to provide other information directly to us. For example, we may collect information when you fill out and submit a form, participate in promotions, communicate with us via third-party sites and services, request customer support or otherwise communicate with us.
You have rights in relation to the use of your personal information. Because we believe strongly that individuals should be dealt with fairly with respect to the processing of their personal information, we provide all of our users with the below rights. Certain individuals may also have statutory and other legally enforceable rights regarding how their data is processed, including legal rights available to people within the European Economic Area pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation and residents of the State of California pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act.
If you want to contact us about any of your rights, please be specific in your request and send it by email to Hello@PrivacyBootcamp.com. We will do our best to respond to any request within one month of receiving it, but if your request is complex it may take longer. We are not always obligated to say yes to every request, but if our answer to your request is no, we will explain to you why that is.
You can ask us what information we hold about you and check that we are complying with the laws that apply to the way we use your information. We will not charge you a fee for this, unless you ask for excessive information or you repeatedly contact us, or you do not have a proper reason to contact us. If you make repeat requests or we do not believe you have a proper reason for asking us, we might refuse your request. We might ask you for more information about yourself so that we can make sure you are who you say you are before providing you with any information.
If you think that we have incorrect or incomplete information about you, you can request that we correct or update it. If we think the information is actually correct, we will tell you why. While we are assessing whether or not the information is incorrect or incomplete we will restrict the information. If we have provided incorrect or incomplete information about you to someone else, we will request that they also update your information following your request.
You have the right to ask us to delete your information in the following situations: (1) if we no longer need your information for the purpose that we collected it; (2) if we asked you for consent to use your information, but you want to withdraw that consent; (3) if you object to our use of your personal information and there is no legitimate business interest for us to keep using it; (4) where we are using your information against the law; (5) where there is a legal obligation that means your information has to be erased. We are not always obligated to delete your information when you request it, but if we do not think we need to delete your information we will tell you why. If we are obligated to delete your information and we have provided that information to someone else, we will, where possible, ask them to delete the information.
You have the right to object to us processing your information where we are processing your personal data for reasons of our legitimate interests and that processing is now causing you harm or you believe it is unlawful. When we receive any objection to processing on these grounds, we will generally restrict access to the information you have contacted us about while we assess whether our legitimate interests are lawful and override your objection. If we can demonstrate that our lawful reasons override your objection or that we need to keep your information for legal claims, we are allowed to continue to process your personal information. Otherwise, we will either restrict processing of your information or stop processing it altogether.
Where you have provided information to us with your consent, you have the right to request that we provide your information to you, or to someone else, in a commonly used electronic form. We will not charge you for the transfer of your information unless your request is excessive. Also, we have to protect other people’s personal information, which means that we may have to remove some information before transferring your information.
If we have asked you for your consent to process particular items of your personal information, you are entitled to withdraw that consent at any time. If you wish to do so, please send an email to Hello@PrivacyBootcamp.com explaining what information you are referring to. We will stop processing this particular personal information as soon as possible after receiving your withdrawal. You will not be penalized in any way for withdrawing consent to any processing of your personal information. Alternatively, if you would like to unsubscribe from one of our email lists, you can simply go to the “unsubscribe” link in the footer of any email to remove yourself from our list or visit your Account Settings page.
As stated above, none of these rights are absolute and we may have lawful reasons to continue processing your information.
We may receive information from cookies, which are pieces of data your browser stores and sends back to us when making requests. We use this information to improve your experience, understand user activity, and improve the quality of our Services. We do not gather information from cookies unnecessarily.
Other than those that are strictly necessary for the functioning and security of our Services, we do not place any cookies on our user’s browser until users have agreed to Privacy Bootcamp’s Terms and Conditions as part of creating a user account.
Protecting the privacy of the very young is important to us. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information on or from our Services from those we actually know are under 18 years of age, and no part of our site is structured to attract anyone under 18 years of age.
