Privacy Policy

Thank you for using Curate With Me! We wrote this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it, and what choices you have.

We take protecting your privacy seriously, and we want you to understand exactly how and why we use your information. This document is our Privacy Policy, which describes what information we collect and what it's used for. It applies to all interactions with Curate With Me, including interactions with our site through buttons and widgets.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. Your use of and/or registration with Curate With Me will constitute your agreement to our policy. If you cannot agree to the terms and conditions set forth below, please do not use our services.

What information do we collect?

We collect information in a few different ways:

  1. When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it

    When you sign up for or use our Products, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, profile photo, comments, likes, email address you used to sign up, and any other information you provide us. If you’re using Curate With Me on your mobile device, you can also choose to provide us with location data.

    You also may give us permission to access your information in other services. For example, you may link your Facebook, Google+ or Twitter account to Curate With Me, which allows us to obtain information from those accounts. The information we get from those services often depends on your settings or their privacy policies, so be sure to check what those are.

  2. We also get technical information when you use our products

    These days, whenever you use a website, mobile application, or other internet service, there’s certain information that almost always gets created and recorded automatically. The same is true when you use our products. Here are some of the types of information we collect:

    • Log data. When you use Curate With Me, our servers automatically record information (“log data”), including information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. This log data may include your Internet Protocol address, the address of the web pages you visited from Curate With Me, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used Curate With Me, and cookie data.
    • Cookie data. Depending on how you’re accessing our products, we may use “cookies” (a small text file sent by your computer each time you visit our website, unique to your Curate With Me account or your browser) or similar technologies to record log data. When we use cookies, we may use “session” cookies (that last until you close your browser) or “persistent” cookies (that last until you or your browser delete them). For example, we may use cookies to store your language preferences or other settings so you don‘t have to set them up every time you visit Curate With Me. Some of the cookies we use are associated with your Curate With Me account (including personal information about you, such as the email address you gave us), and other cookies are not. Most browsers include an option to clear existing cookies or reject new ones. However, if you do this, portions of the Curate With Me website may not function as intended. We use a tool called Google Analytics to help us understand how users interact with our website. It tells us aggregate usage and traffic information, such as how the site was accessed, how long visitors stayed, and the number of first-time visitors to the site. By knowing how people use the site, we can make it better. To learn more about Google Analytics and how it uses your data, please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html
    • Device information. In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using Curate With Me on, including what type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you’re using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or an Android phone. To learn more about what information your device makes available to us, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
Data Security

Curate With Me make every effort to secure any private information submitted to us by our users. We also maintain internal security practices designed to keep your data secure and private. As part of this, we limit employee access to user data. However, no data transmission over the internet is completely secure, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of this data. You use the service at your own risk, and are responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account (such as carefully maintaining the secrecy of your password).

Information You Choose to Display Publicly

Some users may elect to publicly post personally identifying or sensitive information about themselves in their normal use of the service. This could occur through use of the profile fields, in comments, or elsewhere. Information like that, which is voluntarily posted in publicly visible parts of the network, is considered to be public, even if it would otherwise be considered to be personally identifying or sensitive. As such, it is not subject to the protocols listed here, because we don’t control it; you do. Additionally, voluntarily publicizing such information means that you lose any privacy rights you might normally have with regards to that information. It also increases your chances of receiving unwanted communications, like spam.

How do we use the information we collect?

We use the information we collect to provide our products to you and make them better, develop new products, and protect Curate With Me and our users. For example, we may log how often people use two different versions of a product, which can help us understand which version is better.

We also use the information we collect to offer you customized content, including:

You may also provide us with profile page information that anyone can view. The other limited instances where we may share your personal information include:

We may change this policy from time to time, and if we do we’ll post any changes on this page. If you continue to use Curate With Me after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised policy. If the changes are significant, we may provide more prominent notice or get your consent as required by law.

Effective as of March 20, 2015.
