Data Policy

We give you a fun way to make money together. This policy describes what information we collect and how it is used and shared from you.

As you review our policy, keep in mind that it applies to all Followshop brands, products and services that do not have a separate privacy policy or that link to this policy, which we call the “Followshop Services” or “Services.”

      We use cookies and similar technologies to provide and support our Services and each of the uses outlined and described in this section of our policy.
3. How is this information shared?
  • (1) Sharing On Our Services
    • People use our Services to recommend and content-ify and connect and share with others. We make this possible by sharing your information in the following ways:

      ○1 People you share and communicate with.

      Public information is any information you share with a public audience, as well as information in your Public Profile, or content you share on a Followshop Page or another public forum. Public information is available to anyone on or off our Services and can be seen or accessed through online search engines, APIs, and offline media, such as on TV.

      ○2 People that see content others share about you.

      Other people may use our Services to share content and item information about you with the audience they choose.

      ○3 Sharing within Followshop companies.

      We share information we have about you within the family of companies that are part of Followshop.

      ○4 New owner.

      If the ownership or control of all or part of our Services or their assets changes, we may transfer your information to the new owner.
    (2) Sharing With Third-Party Partners and Customers
    • We work with third party companies who help us provide and improve our Services or who use advertising or related products, which makes it possible to operate our companies.

      Here are the types of third parties we can share information with about you:

      ○1 Advertising, Measurement and Analytics Services (Non-Personally Identifiable Information Only).

      We want our advertising to be as relevant and interesting as the other information you find on our Services. With this in mind, we use all of the information we have about you to show you relevant ads. We do not share information that personally identifies you (personally identifiable information is information like name or email address that can by itself be used to contact you or identifies who you are) with advertising, measurement or analytics partners unless you give us permission. We may provide these partners with information about the reach and effectiveness of their advertising without providing information that personally identifies you, or if we have aggregated the information so that it does not personally identify you. For example, we may tell an advertiser how its ads performed, or how many people viewed their ads or installed an app after seeing an ad, or provide non-personally identifying demographic information (such as 25 year old female, in Madrid, who likes software engineering) to these partners to help them understand their audience or customers.

      ○2 Vendors, service providers and other partners.

      We transfer information to vendors, service providers, and other partners who globally support our business, such as providing technical infrastructure services, analyzing how our Services are used, measuring the effectiveness of ads and services, providing customer service, facilitating payments, or conducting academic research and surveys. These partners must adhere to strict confidentiality obligations in a way that is consistent with this Data Policy and the agreements we enter into with them.
3. How can I manage or delete information about me?

You can manage the content and information you share when you use Followshop through the setting tool.
We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above. Information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted, unless we no longer need the data to provide products and services.
You can delete your account any time. When you delete your account, we delete things you have posted, such as item’s name and price and your photos and status updates. Keep in mind that information that others have shared about you is not part of your account and will not be deleted when you delete your account.

4. How do we respond to legal requests or prevent harm?

We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; or to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. For example, we may provide information to third-party partners about the reliability of your account to prevent fraud and abuse on and off of our Services. Information we receive about you, including financial transaction data related to purchases made with Followshop, may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm.

5. How our global services operate

Followshop may share information internally within our family of companies or with third parties for purposes described in this policy. Information collected within the European Economic Area (“EEA”) may, for example, be transferred to countries outside of the EEA for the purposes as described in this policy. We utilize standard contract clauses approved by the European Commission, adopt other means under European Union law, and obtain your consent to legitimize data transfers from the EEA to the United States and other countries.

You can contact us using the information provided below with questions or concerns. We also may resolve disputes you have with us in connection with our privacy policies and practices through TRUSTe.
