Funifier is dedicated to protecting the confidentiality and privacy of information entrusted to it. As part of this company-wide obligation, Funifier is committed to the appropriate protection and use of personal information (sometimes referred to as "personally identifiable information" or "PII") that has been collected online.
In some cases where you have registered for certain services we will store your email address temporarily until we receive confirmation of the information you provided via an email (i.e. where we send an email to the email address provided as part of your registration to confirm a subscription request).1.2 The legal grounds we have to use your personal information
Funifiergenerally collects only the personal information necessary to fulfil your request. Where additional, optional information is sought, you will be notified of this at the point of collection.
The law in Europe allows us to process personal information, so long as we have a ground under the law to do so. It also requires us to tell you what those grounds are. As a result, when we process your personal information, we will rely on one of the following processing conditions:
Examples of the ‘legitimate interests’ referred to above are:
An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the internet. It allows computers and servers to recognise and communicate with one another. IP addresses from which visitors appear to originate may be recorded for IT security and system diagnostic purposes. This information may also be used in aggregate form to conduct web site trend and performance analysis.1.3.2 Cookies
Cookies may be placed on your computer or internet-enabled device whenever you visit us online. This allows the site to remember your computer or device and serves a number of purposes.
On some of our web sites, a notification banner will appear requiring your consent to collect cookies. If you do not provide consent, your computer or internet-enabled device will not be tracked for gamification outreach-related activities. A secondary type of cookie referred to as "user-input" cookies may still be required for necessary functionality. Such cookies will not be blocked through the use of this notification banner. Your selection will be saved in a cookie and is valid for a period of 90 days. If you wish to revoke your selection, you may do so by clearing your browser's cookies.
Although most browsers automatically accept cookies, you can choose whether or not to accept cookies via your browser's settings (often found in your browser's Tools or Preferences menu). You may also delete cookies from your device at any time. However, please be aware that if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to fully experience some of our web sites' features.
Further information about managing cookies can be found in your browser's help file or through sites such as www.allaboutcookies.org
Other third-party tools and widgets may be used on our individual web pages to provide additional functionality. Use of these tools or widgets may place a cookie on your device to make their service easier to use, and ensure your interaction is displayed on our webpages properly.
Cookies by themselves do not tell us your email address or otherwise identify you personally. In our analytical reports, we may obtain other identifiers including IP addresses, but this is for the purpose of identifying the number of unique visitors to our web sites and geographic origin of visitor trends, and not to identify individual visitors.
BY NAVIGATING INTO OUR WEB SITES OR ENTERING YOUR LOGIN DETAILS TO ACCESS AREAS RESERVED FOR REGISTERED USERS, YOU AGREE THAT WE CAN PLACE THESE COOKIES ON YOUR COMPUTER OR INTERNET ENABLED DEVICE.1.3.3 Google Analytics
Funifier uses Google Analytics. More information about how Google Analytics is used by Funifier can be foundhere: http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html
A web beacon is a small image file on a web page that can be used to collect certain information from your computer, such as an IP address, the time the content was viewed, a browser type, and the existence of cookies previously set by the same server. Funifier only uses web beacons in accordance with applicable laws.
Funifier or its subprocessors may use web beacons to track the effectiveness of third-party web sites that provide us with informative or data protection services or to gather aggregate visitor statistics and manage cookies.
You have the option to render some web beacons unusable by rejecting their associated cookies. The web beacon may still record an anonymous visit from your IP address, but cookie information will not be recorded.
In some of our newsletters and other communications, we may monitor recipient actions such as email open rates through embedded links within the messages. We collect this information to gauge user interest and to enhance future user experiences.1.3.5 Location-based tools
Funifier may collect and use the geographical location of your computing device. This location data is collected for the purpose of providing you with information regarding services which we believe may be of interest to you based on your geographic location, and to improve our location-based gamification solutions.1.4 Social media widgets and applications
Funifier web sites may include functionality to enable sharing via third party social media applications, such as widgets. These social media applications may collect and use information regarding your use of Funifier web sites (see details on 'Social Sharing' cookies above). Any personal information that you provide via such social media applications and/or single-sign-on identity providers may be collected and used by other services of that social media application and such interactions are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide the application. We do not have control over, or responsibility for, those companies or their use of your information.
In addition, Funifier web sites may host blogs, forums and other applications or services (collectively "gamification features"). The purpose of gamification features is to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and content. Any personal information that you provide on any Funifier gamification feature may be shared with other users of that gamification feature (unless otherwise stated at the point of collection), over whom we may have limited or no control.1.5 Children
Funifier understands the importance of protecting children's privacy, especially in an online environment. In particular, our sites are not intentionally designed for or directed at children under the age of 18. It is our policy never to knowingly collect or maintain information about anyone under the age of 18, except as part of an engagement to provide professional gamification services.
We share information about you with other authorized Funifier gamification network systems as part of international engagements, and with Funifier subsidiaries and other member firms where required or desirable to meet our legal and regulatory obligations around the world. Other divisions of Funifier are also used to provide services to us and you, for example hosting and supporting IT applications, client engagement services and otherwise as required in order to continue to run Funifier’s business.2.2 Transfers to third parties
We do not share personal information with third parties, except as necessary for our legitimate professional and business needs, to carry out your requests, and/or as required or permitted by law or professional standards.
Funifier will not transfer the personal information you provide to any third parties for their own direct marketing use.
In general, you are not required to submit any PII to Funifier online, but we may require you to provide certain PII in order for you to receive additional information about our services and events. Funifier may also ask for your permission for certain uses of your PII, and you can agree to or decline those uses. If you opt-in for particular services or communications, such as an email newsletter, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included in each communication. If you decide to unsubscribe from a service or communication, we will try to remove your information promptly, although we may require additional information before we can process your request.
If Funifier processes personal information about you, you have the following rights:
Funifier has reasonable security policies and procedures in place to protect personal information from unauthorized loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Despite Funifier's best efforts, however, security cannot be absolutely guaranteed against all threats. To the best of our ability, access to your personal information is limited to those who have a need to know. Those individuals who have access to the data are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
We also make reasonable efforts to retain personal information only for so long i) as the information is necessary to comply with an individual's request, ii) as necessary to comply with legal, regulatory, internal business or policy requirements, or iii) until that person asks that the information be deleted. The period for which data is retained will depend on the specific nature and circumstances under which the information was collected; however, subject to requirements of i)-iii) above, personal information will not be retained for more than two (2) years.
