We collect various types of Personal Data from our users, as explained in more detail below, and we collect, use, disclose and otherwise process this Personal Data in connection with our existing and future business purposes, including but not limited to the following purposes:

  2. Personal Data under this Privacy Policy shall refer to personal data that is collected prior to, on or after the date of your consent to this Privacy Policy or the date of this Privacy Policy.

 

Revision of Privacy Policy

 

  1. We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time as we continue to improve our Services. Any material changes will be posted on our website with the updated Privacy Policy. You are responsible for reading and understanding the Privacy Policy and your continued use or access of our website and/or services shall be treated as your consent for us to process your Personal Data in accordance with the updated Privacy Policy, unless you inform us otherwise in writing. Where you do not continue to use or access our website and/or services after the updated Privacy Policy comes into effect and you do not consent to us processing your Personal Data in accordance with the updated Privacy Policy, we will continue to process your Personal Data in accordance with the last version of the Privacy Policy which you have consented to, unless you inform us otherwise in writing.
     
Collection of Personal Data

 

  1. Information You Provide
     

    • We receive and store any information you provide to us during the course of your transactions and dealings with us.  For example, through the registration process and/or through your account settings, we may collect, without limitation, Personal Data such as your name, age, gender, race, ethnic origin, religious beliefs, occupation, marital status, residential status, postal address, email address, phone number and personal preferences. Certain information may be required to register with us or to take advantage of some of our features. You may be requested to furnish your Personal Data from time to time.
       

    • If you have given us your relevant contact information, we may communicate with you. For example, if you have given us your email address, we may email you about your use of our services.  We may also receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. This confirmation helps us improve our communications with you as well as that of our services. If you prefer not to receive communications from us, please indicate your preference by contacting us at team@showwcase.com or by following the opt-out instructions contained in such emails.
       

  2. Information Collected Automatically

    • Whenever you visit our website, App or use or access our services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include (but not limited to) your device’s IP address, geolocation data, device identification, “cookie” information, the type of browser and/or device you are using to access our services, the page or feature you requested or visited, the time spent on such pages and features, information searched for on our website or App, access times and dates and other statistics. “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Services are visited and by how many people.  You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features or services.  Also, if you click on a link to a third party website or service, such third party may also transmit cookies to you.  Again, this Privacy Policy does not cover the use of cookies by any third parties, and we are not responsible for their privacy policies and practices. Please be aware that cookies placed by third parties may continue to track your activities online even after you have left our website or services, and those third parties may not honor “Do Not Track” requests you have set using your browser or device.
       

    • We may use this data in association with any other Personal Data to customize content for you that we think you might like, based on your usage patterns.  We may also use such information for analysis and evaluation to help us to improve our services. For example, this data can tell us how often users use a particular feature of  our services, and we can use that knowledge to make  such services as engaging to as many users as possible.
       

  3. Information Collected from Other Websites and Do Not Track Policy
     

    • Through cookies we place on your browser or device, we may collect information about your online activity even after you leave our services.  Just like any other usage information we collect, this information allows us to improve our services and customize your online experience, and otherwise as described in this Privacy Policy.  Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites.  Our services do not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity both while you are using our services and after you leave our services.
       

Disclosure and Usage of Personal Data

 

We do not share your Personal Data with third parties, except for circumstances where we have a good-faith belief that access, use, transfer or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary or appropriate for the purposes of data storage or processing or any other purposes related to the purposes set out or contemplated in this Privacy Policy. We ensure that such information is disclosed to our subsidiaries or affiliates and our trusted business partners and agents within or outside the country in which we or they are established, under conditions of confidentiality and similar levels of security safeguards. We may disclose your Personal Data in the following circumstances:

  1. Your Personal Data may be de-identified so that you are not identified as an individual before we provide that information to our trusted business partners and agents. We may also provide aggregate usage information to our trusted business partners and agents, who may use such information to understand how often and in what ways people use our services, so that they, too, can provide you with an engaging online experience. However, we do not disclose aggregate usage or de-identified information to a trusted business partner or agent in a manner that would identify you as an individual. 
     
  2. Your Personal Data may be disclosed or transferred to our subsidiaries and/or corporate affiliates for use in consistency with this Privacy Policy.
     
  3. We do engage other third-party companies as well as people to carry out tasks on our behalf and will need to share your Personal Data with them in order to provide products or services to you. For example, we may use a Third Party Payment Processor to receive and process your credit card transactions for us. Any payment card information you use to make a purchase on our services is collected and processed directly by our payment processor, and we never physically receive or store your full payment card information. Our payment processor commits to complying with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) and using industry standard security. 
     
  4. You may elect to upload selected user profile information, including, but not limited to, your name, location, and any image content (provided your user profile permits it). Any user profile information uploaded to our website or App may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within our services.  Your account privacy settings may allow you to limit the other users who can see the Personal Data in your user profile and/or what information in your user profile is visible to others.  Please remember that any content you upload to your public user profile, along with any Personal Data or content that you voluntarily disclose online in a manner that other users can view (on discussion boards, in chat tools, etc.) becomes publicly available, and can be collected and used by anyone.  Your user name may also be displayed to other users if and when you post comments or upload images or videos through our website, App or services and other users can contact you through comments in your Posts. When you provide any content or your Personal Data to any third party on our website through non-public conversations, please remember that recipients have their own copy of your communications on our website which they may duplicate, store or re-share, even if you delete your copy of those communications from your account. As such, you should think carefully about what you make public on our website and what you disclose to any third party on our website through non-public conversations on our website, especially if it is sensitive information. You may control the information you share on our website through any tools or account settings available on our website. By publicly posting content on our website, you are directing to us to disclose that information as broadly as possible.
     
  5. We may choose to buy or sell assets, and may share and/or transfer customer information in connection with the evaluation of and entry into such transactions. Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, Personal Data could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
     
  6. We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we believe is necessary to:
    • comply with any applicable law or court order; 
    • enforce or apply our Terms of Use [https://about.showwcase.com/tos] and other agreements; or 
    • protect the rights, property, or safety of Showwcase, our officers, employees, users, or others.

Protection of Personal Data

 

  1. Your account is protected by email verification for your privacy and security. You are responsible for maintaining the security and integrity of your email account as well as the security and confidentiality of the verification code sent to your email address whenever you sign in to your account with us. You are responsible for preventing unauthorized access to your account and Personal Data by not sharing your verification code or your email account to anyone and limiting access to your computer or device and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account. In respect of a corporate account, we recommend setting up a shared-access email account in your company domain linked to the corporate account.
     
  2. We value your privacy and strive to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Data we retain in our records. We strive to continuously update and improve our confidentiality and security measures in accordance with the applicable data protection laws and reasonable standard of commercial practice. We shall however not be liable for any unauthorized or accidental entry or use of your account, failure of the Services, or any loss, theft, misuse, modification, unauthorized or accidental access or disclosure, alteration or destruction of your Personal Data, to the extent that is not within our control. 

 

Your Rights of Access and Correction

 

  1. You may access, correct or delete the following information that you have given to us through your account settings:
    • username;
    • contact information; 
    • user profile information, including images you may have uploaded to the Site; and
    • payment details and tax identification information.

      The information you can view, update, and delete may change as our services change.  We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. If you have any questions about viewing or updating information we have on file about you, please email us at team@showwcase.com.

 

Retention of Personal Data

 

  1. By providing your Personal Data to us, you expressly consent to our retention of the same. We shall endeavour to make it easy for you to keep your Personal Data accurate, complete and up to date. We will retain your Personal Data for the period necessary to fulfil the many different purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is permitted or required by law. We make good faith efforts to provide you with access so you can request that we correct your Personal Data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if we are not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. 

 

Your Options

 

  1. You have the option not to disclose information to us, but please bear in mind some information may be required to register for an account with us or to access some of our features or services. If you do not wish to have your Personal Data being processed by us, you may opt out by emailing us at team@showwcase.com.
     
  2. We may maintain a copy of your unrevised information in our records after you have updated any information. You may request deletion of your account by emailing us at team@showwcase.com. Some information may remain in our records after your deletion of such information from your account. We may use any aggregated data derived from or incorporating your Personal Data after you update or delete it, but not in a form that would identify you personally. Further, keep in mind that search engines and other third parties may still retain copies of your public information even after you have deleted the information from our services or deactivated your account with us. We shall not be liable for any loss or damage that you suffer as a result or in connection with such public information to the extent that is not within our control.
     
  3. If you are a California consumer, please see the section below titled "Notices for California Residents" for more notices regarding your Personal Data.

  1. If you are visiting our website from outside California, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored and processed where our servers are located. The data protection and other laws of California might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. We nonetheless strive to take reasonable measures to ensure that your privacy is protected.
