Hello, and welcome to Gather Voices®.
Gather Voices (Gather Voices, Inc.; https://www.gathervoices.co/) (collectively, “GV,” “us,” “we”, or “our”) is an online service provider based in the U.S. We assist our Customers by offering a cloud-based platform that permits our Customers’ users – employees, advocates, members and others – to create and upload video and other content (“User Content”) to our secure, cloud-based platform where our Customers can edit and publish those videos.
If you are under the age of 18 in the United States, under 16 in the European Union or under the age of majority in your country of residence, you are not permitted to use our Site without parental consent. For more information, please see the “Children’s Privacy” section below.
If you are an individual entitled to the protections of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), please see the “International Data Transfers” section below, which describes additional rights you, as an individual “data subject” under the GDPR, have regarding your Personal Data. If you are a California resident, please see the “California Privacy Rights” section below.
When GV processes or stores your Personal Data in connection with providing the Service to our Customers, we are acting as a data “processor” for our Customers, and not as a data “controller,” as defined in Article 4 of the GDPR. In that context, our Customers have primary responsibility to you regarding your Personal Data, and our use of your Personal Data is limited to providing our Service to our Customers.
GV uses encryption technology and other means to protect the confidentiality and security of Personal Data, User Content and our Customers’ data transmitted, stored and processed using our Service. Your Personal Data may be included within your User Content if you included it or if it was included by our Customer. For more details, please see the “How We Protect Your Information” section below.
If you are an individual data subject entitled to the protections of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you may opt out of having any of your Personal Data disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose that is materially different from the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you, subject to certain exceptions. Generally, subject to the preceding sentence, the following will apply:
If you wish to cancel your account and status as an active Customer of GV, your termination rights are specified in your GV Agreement. If you wish to request that we no longer use Personal Data you have supplied in order to provide you the Service, please contact us at email@example.com or as otherwise described in the “Contacting GV” section. Personal Data no longer retained will be disposed of or destroyed in a reasonable manner intended to prevent loss, theft, misuse, or unauthorized access. If you are a Visitor, we will retain your Personal Data for as long as we deem necessary for legitimate business purposes.
GV uses 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (256-AES) to encrypt data in transit and at rest. We also implement industry-standard security procedures and processes to protect the confidentiality and security of Personal Data, User Content and our Customers’ data transmitted, stored and processed using our Service. Our physical security layer is protected by need-to-know authorization provided only to the appropriate operations individuals. Our network is also protected by industry-standard firewall technology and administered real-time to provide timely security patching. This layer is also monitored by intrusion-detection systems designed to detect unauthorized access.
These safeguards are intended to protect User Content and Personal Data and to ensure, to the extent possible, the proper and legal use of the Site and our Service. However, no data security system is impenetrable, and GV cannot and does not guarantee that information stored, processed or transmitted using our Service will be 100% secure.
If you are a California resident, you may ask for a list of third parties that have received your information for direct marketing purposes during the previous calendar year. This list also contains the types of information shared. We provide this list at no cost. We do not share your information with third parties for their own marketing purposes. In addition, if you are a California consumer entitled to the protections of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (effective January 1, 2019), we plan to provide additional disclosures and a statement of additional rights you may have as and when required.
In all cases when you contact us, to protect your privacy and security, we may take steps to verify your identity before complying with the request. Please identify our Customer (your “Sponsor,” the organization that introduced you to our Service), which may be acting as the data controller regarding your Personal Data. In that case, we will refer your inquiry to our Customer and assist them, to the extent possible, in responding to your request to exercise your rights regarding your Personal Data.
