What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

How Do We Protect Your Data and Who Else Do We Share Your Data With

First and foremost, we make sure to encrypt and pseudonymize any personally identifiable information so that it is not seen by the public.

In some cases, we may share basic information like your first name, last name initial, and home state with the public.

We may share your social media handle(s) in our communications if you have meaningfully interacted with us or our Services. For example, if you win a giveaway on Instagram, we may write, “Congratulations to @janedoe on winning our giveaway!” We do not ask for explicit consent to display this type of information as you are interacting in a public forum with us and other users of the service, using a public profile name.

We may also share certain communications you send to us (for example, an email message or comment about how much you liked the newsletter). We typically scrub these communications of any personally identifiable information such as your email address or full name.

The following data will not be publicly displayed or revealed to other users, unless you grant us explicit consent:

  • Any payment information you provide
  • Your email address
  • Your mailing address
  • Your IP address
  • Any other private profile information, in accordance with your account settings and profile
  • Communications you send to us (for example, when you ask for support, send us questions or comments, or report a problem)

In some instances, we may also share your information to the following parties and for the following reasons:

  • Competent public authorities or other third parties, if required by law or reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property and safety of ourselves or others.
  • Service providers under contract who help with our business operations. We employ these companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products and services to you.
  • Our affiliates and promotional partners, so they can offer you special products, services, discounts, tickets, and other items or services. Likewise, we may receive information from such affiliates and promotional partners to offer our Users special items or services. We ask for your explicit consent in sharing your personal information with these parties. We do not sell personal information to third parties. The data that is usually shared with affiliates and promotional partners is in aggregate and not at an individual level.
  • We may also transfer your personal data in the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets on a need to know basis. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use personal data you have provided to us in a manner that is consistent with applicable law and this Privacy Policy.

We do not sell, rent, or trade your personal information.

You have a right to a copy of the information we have about you. Contact us at info@workbigger.co for more information. You can modify or delete certain information associated with your account (such as your name, mailing address, etc.) from your account settings. A link to your account settings can be found at the bottom of every email we send you.

Data Transfer

Because Work Bigger is a United States-based company, your information will be collected and processed in the United States. The United States has its own laws governing data protection and government access to information. The rules that protect your personal information under United States law may be different than in your home country.

How long we retain your data

We retain your data for the shortest amount necessary to provide you with our Services. Typically, we will retain most of the personal data for the duration of your use of the Site and Services. Note that even after the deletion of your account, we still retain information about your past activity with the email newsletter, but your personal information will be non-identifiable.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

We may transfer the personal data we obtain to third parties in countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). The laws in those countries may not offer an adequate level of data protection. In particular, personal data may be transferred to the United States.

When we transfer your personal data outside the EEA, we will protect your personal data as described in this Privacy Policy and in accordance with applicable law, (for example by entering into the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for the transfer of personal data to a processor located outside of the European Union).

Our Policy on Children

People under 18 (or the legal age in your jurisdiction) are not permitted to use our services on their own. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13 and children under 13 are not permitted to register for an account or use our Services. If you believe that a child has provided us with personal information, please contact us at info@workbigger.co. If we become aware that a child under age 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we’ll delete it.

Contact Us

If you have questions about this policy, or about the site, please contact us at: info@workbigger.co. We’ll make every effort to resolve your concerns.
