Privacy Policy

Introduction

Your privacy is very important to us. This privacy policy explains how your personal information is used and protected. Information requested or provided other than through the website will contain separate privacy terms and conditions. This statement explains how we deal with personal information that is obtained via our platform available at Savvy.Coop. We respect the privacy of our users and ensure that any personal information we receive will be protected and treated confidentially.


Type of Information Gathered

The Savvy Coop registration form requires users to give us contact information (for example, name and e-mail address). Users of the Savvy Coop may also provide gender, birth date, ethnicity, demographic information (city and state), along with social profile URLs, and other information necessary to participate in certain features of our platform.

When using the Site, you may also use the services offered by other parties. In particular, payment systems are provided by third parties and the information you provide to facilitate payment are collected by such third parties and not Savvy Coop. This privacy policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to people that we do not employ or manage. Please check the privacy practices of these other companies or persons (if any) to understand how they treat the personally identifiable information that you provide to them and contact them if you have any concerns.


Right to Data*

*This section is only applicable to those individuals who reside in a country which has regulations requiring the below. When you send us such a request you will be required to provide a photograph of your government issued identification which confirms your residence in a country which recognizes such requirements.

If required by your country’s regulations, you have the right to request us free of charge, rectification and erasure of your personal data by sending an e-mail to hello@savvy.coop. This same email address can also be used to object to the processing of your personal data.

You can always get an overview of your own personal details and personal settings and adjust them if necessary by logging in and adjusting your account settings.

If required by your country’s regulations, you have the right to obtain the personal data you have provided to us, in a structured, current and machine-readable form, if you would wish to transfer them to another party.


Online Tracking

We may use cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to help us verify your identity upon return to our website, and improve your user experience with our services. No other parties will be able to collect your personally identifiable information while they are on our website or using our services. We will not collect personally identifiable information about your browsing activities over time and across third-party web sites or online services whether or not we receive a Do Not Track signal.


How the Information Is Used

You can be assured that your medical providers and insurers will not have access to your personal information unless you approve of such sharing.

We mainly expect to use your email address to send updates about the status of Savvy Coop (giving you updates and potentially polling you for input). We may also email you regarding opportunities to participate in different "gigs" such as focus groups and to send you information about any new services or initiatives or to respond to your requests. We will only send personally identifiable information about you to other companies or people when: (1) we have your consent to share the information; (2) we need to share your information to facilitate your involvement in a “gig”; (3) we respond to subpoenas, court orders or legal process or (4) we find that your actions on our web sites violate the Terms, or any of our usage guidelines for specific products or services. We may also use anonymized or pseudonymized information for analysis purposes. Anonymization means it will no longer be able to identify you based on the information we use for our analysis. Additionally, the data you provide to us is processed by the various technology companies we interface with, including our email manager and newsletter providers and our Site provider. Savvy Coop will not sell to third parties any individually identifiable personal information, e.g., your e-mail address, name, etc., that you supply during the registration process.


Consent Regarding Communications Between Us

For contractual purposes, you (a) consent to receive all communications from us, including any possible newsletters or messages about security incidents, in electronic form via your account in the Site or via the email address you submit when you register, and (b) agree that all Terms, agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if they were in writing. Emails we send to you will contain an easy automated unsubscribe link so that you can opt-out of the subscription. Simply follow the indications in the email.


Sponsored Content – Privacy Policy

The Savvy Coop website includes some sponsored content. These resources and tools are created directly with industry sponsors. If sponsored content includes a separate or unique privacy policy, the Savvy Coop will display the sponsor’s full privacy statement or a link to the policy within the content or web pages.


Information Disclosed and Potential Business Transfers

Information that we collect from you as a user, including personal information, is considered to be a business asset and will be treated accordingly.


Individual Choice and Access

You have choices in the collection, use, and sharing of your personal information:

If you do not want us to have your information, do not register with our website. Our website contains links to other sites. Please read the privacy statements of any websites that you visit. The Savvy Coop is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those websites. If you want to review and correct your personal information, please contact us and we would be glad to assist you (see Contact Information, below).


Security

We are committed to maintaining the security of personal information. We use appropriate technical, administrative, and physical controls to protect personal information from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or alteration. If we share personal information with others, we subject them to strict contractual and legal controls regarding the protection, use, and disclosure of the information. If we share anonymous or de-identified data with third parties, we will contractually require them to keep it in de-identified form and forbid them to make any attempt to re-identify the data or allow others to do so.

There is always some risk that unauthorized, wrongful, or illegal access to your information could occur or that data sent over the Internet could be intercepted. We urge you to take strong precautions to use secure networks and to protect your password. Do not disclose your website login credentials to unauthorized people. Also, be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.


Retention Policy

We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.


Children

At this time, children under the age of 18 cannot create Savvy Coop accounts. Parents may share information about their own children in accordance with the Terms of Service.

Updates

We may modify this Privacy Policy at any time, although we expect that most changes will only be editorial in nature or reflect changes in the services we offer. However, in the unlikely event that we would ever make material changes that would permit us to share your information more broadly than we have previously described, we will ask you to consent to the new Privacy Policy before it applies to you.

If you do not consent, many of our website’s features could be unavailable to you.


Effective Date
