We respect your right to privacy. We do not give or sell your data or any of your personal information to third parties without your permission (such as to facilitate fulfillment of a transaction you entered into on Smallknot.) Stripe, a secure third party payment processor, processes all of the transactions on Smallknot. No one sees your credit card information besides Stripe, not even us.
2.1 Email Address. We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. We will only use this email address to contact you as part of the transaction process, to send you periodic emails that you have signed up for, or for purposes that are intended to enhance your user experience. We may also occasionally contact you to obtain feedback on a specific campaign (a “Campaign”) in which you have participated. We will not share your contact information with third parties, except as provided in Section 4.1. We will generally ask you to indicate whether or not you want to receive certain types of email communication from us, and we will adhere to your preferences unless we consider a particular communication to be necessary.
2.2 Name and Address. You are required to provide your full name while using the Services and funding a Campaign. We only share this information with merchants listed on a particular Campaign, so that the merchant can deliver rewards that you have requested through use of the Service (“Reward”) and so that the merchant can verify your identity when you redeem a Reward. When signing up for our mailing lists, a Smallknot account, or other services or promotions that require registration, you may also be asked to provide your name at that time so that we can personalize all communications you receive from us.
2.4 Demographic Information. We may occasionally collect demographic data, such as age, gender or profession. We may use all of the information we collect to tailor the Service, and related products and services. We believe that this benefits you, as it provides you with access to products, services and ads that are more likely to correspond to your needs and interests. We do not identify you as an individual to any advertiser or third party product/service provider without first obtaining your explicit consent.
2.5 Information Collected from Third Parties. If you provide personally identifiable information to this Service, we may combine such information with actively collected information in order to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of our services.
2.6 Facebook. We allow users the ability to login to the Service using Facebook credentials. By logging in to the Service with your Facebook credentials, you give Smallknot the ability to access certain personally identifying information stored in your Facebook profile. We will not view or store any data available to us from your Facebook profile without first obtaining your consent. We may allow you to share our content with your Facebook contacts. We do not store lists of your friends or the specific messages that you send to your friends, although we may display other friends that have registered for the Service with their Facebook credentials, and we may record the number of times that particular content has been shared.
3.1 During your use of the Service, certain information may be passively collected using various technologies such as Google Analytics, and means, such as your physical location, navigational data, and which Campaigns you have viewed. We may share the types of data described in this section with third parties, but any such data will be aggregated and will not contain any personally identifying information.
In addition, when you view the Service, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a cookie or similar file and will help us tailor the Service to better match your interests and preferences. Most Internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. We do not collect personally identifiable information without your consent, but we may tie information collected automatically to your previously submitted personally identifiable information.
Smallknot only shares your personally identifying information with third parties in limited circumstances and, except as provided in this section, we only do so after first obtaining your consent to share your personally identifying information. However, by using the Service, you hereby consent to us sharing personally identifying information under the specific circumstances set forth herein.
We use a variety of security measures, including encryption and authentication tools, to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information. Your personal information is stored behind firewalls and is only accessible by a limited number of people who are required to keep the information confidential. When you place orders we use a secure server. To the extent you select the secure server method and your browser supports such functionality, all credit card information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Regardless of these efforts by us, no data transmission over the public Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
To modify or delete any or all of the personal information you have provided to us, or if you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
