Your Privacy Rights
Effective Date: September 9, 2022
Regardless of where our servers are located, your personal data may be processed by us in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may or may not be to the same level of protection as in other parts of the world. BY VISITING THE SITE AND USING THE SERVICE, YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING IN THE UNITED STATES OF ANY INFORMATION COLLECTED OR OBTAINED BY US THROUGH VOLUNTARY SUBMISSIONS, AND, TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE, THAT U.S. LAW GOVERNS ANY SUCH COLLECTION AND PROCESSING.
1. Who Collects Your Information On Our Service?
We do. Under the GDPR, Baton is what is known as a “Controller” of the Personal Data that you provide us with. We collect information from you on the Service, and we are responsible for protection of your information.
2. What Information Does Baton Collect?
A. Personal Information. We collect certain personal information about you, which may be supplied when you register for the Service, when you create or update an account, when you use the Service, when you request services, when you link your account with us to your social media account(s) via our optional integration, and otherwise when you submit such information. The types of personal information we collect and save include:
You may provide us with information when you interact with us through email, submit a review or a post, or through other use of the Service. We may retain such information in order to provide you with services, and you agree that we may share this information as needed with other users in order to resolve any issues that may arise between you and another user of the Service.
The Service may be integrated with third party social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram (“Platforms”). If you choose to interact with the Platforms through the Service, the Platforms may make additional Personal Information about you available to us.
The Service may access the internet or use your mobile data plan in order to use certain features of the Service.
Although it may appear that we collect financial information, it is actually collected and processed through our third-party payment processor (“Payment Processor”). Our Payment Processor may collect information such as banking information or credit card number, name, CVV code or date of expiration, from you through use of the Service. Baton cannot access and does not hold your financial information.
B. Non-personal Information.Non-personal information is non-personally identifiable or anonymous information about you, including but not limited to browser information, the pages accessed most frequently, how pages and features are used, time spent on a page, when and how you use the Service, applications downloaded, search terms entered, and similar non-personal data.
Automatically tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses is one method of automatically collecting information about your activities online and information volunteered by you. Further, the Service may utilize web beacons, pixel tags, third-party cookies, embedded links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools.
If non-personal information is paired to any of your PII, we will treat the non-personal information as if it were also PII.
Part of the purpose of the Service is to share materials you make available. Anything you publicly post will not be considered personal information.
C.Aggregate Information. We may also collect anonymous, non-identifying and aggregate information, the date and time of any request you make, your language preference, pages you visit, the referring website, the website you go to immediately after visiting our Site, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.
Why Is My Information Being Collected?
We accept and gather information in an effort to provide the Service to you. We need to collect your personal information so that we can respond to your requests for information or to be added to our email lists, to integrate with Platforms at your options, enforce our Terms of Service, and otherwise provide the Service. Our Payment Processor collects your payment information to facilitate any payment which may become due and owing because of your use of the Service. We also collect aggregate information to help us better design the Service. We collect log information for monitoring purposes to help us to diagnose problems with our servers, administer the Service, calculate usage levels, and otherwise provide services to you.
4. How Do We Use the Information We Collect?
A. We use the personal information you provide for the purposes for which you have submitted it, including:
B. We may use anonymous information that we collect to improve the design and content of our Service, and to enable us to personalize your internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze how our Site is used, as well as to offer you programs or services. We may use any anonymous, aggregate information, which may include or be based on your information, without restriction.
5. Do We Share Your Personal Information?
We will not share your personal information except: (a) for the purposes for which you provided it; (b) with your consent; (c) as may be required by law or as we think necessary to protect our organization or others from injury (e.g., in response to a court order or subpoena, in response to a law enforcement agency request, or when we believe that someone is causing, or is about to cause, injury to or interference with the rights or property of another); (d) with our corporate clients that are using our CRM Services; or (e) with persons or organizations with whom we contract to carry out internal operations or business activities.
We may also share aggregate information with others, including affiliated and non-affiliated organizations.
Finally, we may transfer your personal information to a third party, or our successor-in-interest, in connection with, or as the result of, an acquisition, sale, merger, reorganization or bankruptcy involving our company.
6. Are There Other Ways My Personal Data Could Be Shared?
You may elect to share certain personal information with individuals or with the public via your use of the Service. In this case, you will control such sharing via settings that we provide. For example, the Service may make it possible for you to publicly share information via Platforms such as Facebook, or Instagram. Be aware that when you choose to share information with friends, or with the public at large, you may be disclosing sensitive information, or information from which sensitive information can be inferred. Always use caution when sharing information through the Service. You understand and agree that we are not responsible for any consequences of your sharing of information through and beyond the Service.
7. How Can You Access And Control Your Information?
After becoming a user of the Service, you may revise or edit your information through your Account, or by sending us an email to email@example.com. For instructions on how you can further access your personal information that we have collected, or how to correct errors in such information, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also promptly stop using your information and remove it from our servers and database at any time upon your e-mail request to do so. To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to help verify your identity before granting access, making corrections, or removing your information. You may opt-out of promotional emails (including via the unsubscribe link in any such promotional email from us) or by emailing us at email@example.com.
8. How Do We Store and Protect Your Information?
A. After receiving your personal information, we will store it on our servers for future use. We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in place to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect including, but not limited to, strong encryption, firewall protection, and industry best practice authentication. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet or data storage solution can ever be completely secure. As a result, although we take industry-standard steps to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or receive from us or that we store on our or our service providers' systems.
B. If you are using the Service from outside of the USA, you understand that your connection will be through and to servers located in the USA, and the information you provide will be securely stored in our servers and internal systems located within the USA.
C. We retain and store your PII until you request us to remove it from our servers. We store our logs and other technical records indefinitely.
A. To enhance your online experience with us, our web pages may presently or in the future use "cookies." Cookies are text files that our web server may place on your computer or mobile device to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other PII unless you choose to provide this information to us. Once you choose to provide PII, however, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. Although it may be possible to turn off the collection of cookies through your device or browser, certain features of the Services may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
C. We also use the web analysis tool FullStory, provided by Fullstory, Inc. 1745 Peachtree Street NW, Ste G, Atlanta, Georgia 30309 (“FullStory”) to collect information regarding visitor behavior on some of our Services. More information about FullStory and its privacy practices can be found at https://www.fullstory.com/legal/privacy/. You may be able to opt-out of some, or all, of FullStory’s collection and processing of data generated by your use of the Services by going to https://www.fullstory.com/optout/.
D. Baton or its service providers may also use "pixel tags," "web beacons," "clear GIFs" or similar means (collectively, "Pixel Tags") in connection with some of our Site pages and HTML-formatted email messages for purposes of, among other things, compiling aggregate statistics about website usage and response rates. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1x1), that is ordinarily not visible to website visitors and may be associated with cookies on visitors’ computers or mobile devices. Pixel Tags allow us and our service providers to count users who have visited certain pages of our Site, to deliver customized services, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, Pixel Tags can inform the sender of the email whether and when the email has been opened.
E. As you use the internet, you leave a trail of electronic information at each website you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as "clickstream data”, can be collected and stored by a website's server. Clickstream data can reveal the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the website from which you linked to our Site. We may use clickstream data as a form of non-personally identifiable information to determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our Site, how visitors navigate through the Site, and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors. We will only use this information to improve our Site and Services.
F. Do Not Track. At present, the Site does not specifically respond to browser do-not-track signals.
