Privacy Policy
Effective as of June 6th, 2018

YOUR PRIVACY IS IMPORTANT TO US. PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY TO LEARN ABOUT THE INFORMATION THAT MAVEN COLLECTS FROM YOU AND HOW MAVEN USES THAT INFORMATION

This Privacy Policy applies to maven-labs.com (“Site”), our mobile application known as Sell For Maven and any related website or mobile applications on or to which this Privacy Policy is linked or referenced (collectively, the “Services”). The Services are operated by Maven Technologies, Inc. (“Maven,” “we,” “us” or “our”). Maven is responsible for the collection and use of your personal data and acts as controller under the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY PART OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, THEN PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SERVICES.

We participate in the E.U. - U.S. and Swiss - U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks and comply with the Privacy Shield Principles. Click https://www.privacyshield.gov to learn more.

1. Scope

This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect through the Services and why we collect it and what we do with the information we collect. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information that is collected by any third-party website or service that you access through the Services.

Our agreements with certain customers may contain provisions about the collection, use, storage and disposal of information collected through the Services and offline. If a provision of a customer agreement conflicts or otherwise is inconsistent with a provision of this Privacy Policy, then the provision of the customer agreement will prevail but solely to the extent of the conflict or inconsistency.

2. Information We Collect

Maven collects Personal Data and Usage Data.

Personal Data is information that directly or indirectly identifies a specific person, such as name, email address or mailing address.

Usage Data is information that, by itself, does not individually identify a specific person, such as browser type, device type, operating system dates and times of log-ins.

Maven generally does not treat Usage Data as Personal Data. We may, however, link together different types of Usage Data or link Usage Data to Personal Data. If linked information identifies (or can be used to identify) an individual person, Maven treats the linked information as Personal Data.

3. How We Collect Information

How Maven collects information depends on how and why the Services are used.

Maven collects information in the following ways:

When you access the Site:

You can access the Site without transferring personal data. We only collect certain usage data, like your IP-address, browser type and version, operating system, internet service provider, prior visited website or requested files. This data does not allow personal identification and is not connected with your Personal Data. It is only used to facilitate and improve your access to and the usage of the Site, which is our legitimate interest pursuant to Sec. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The usage data is deleted as soon as we do not need it anymore, which is usually when you leave the Site.

When You Provide Information to Maven:

Certain Services require you to provide information before you can use them.

You may not submit information about third parties to Maven without their permission or other form of authorization. By submitting information about third parties to Maven through the Services, you represent to Maven that you have the legal right and authority to do so.

When You Use the Services:

We collect information about the Services that you use and how you use them.

Through Server Logs: A server log is a list of the activities that a server performs. Maven’s servers automatically collect and store in server logs your search queries, Internet Protocol (IP) address, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL and certain cookies that identify your browser or Maven account.

From Your Computer or Mobile Device: We collect device-specific information, such as your computer or mobile telephone model, operating system version, device identifiers and mobile network information. If you have a Maven account, Maven may link your device information with your account.

This data processing serves our legitimate interest of enhancing the performance of the Services, eliminating errors and being able to offer you a better customer experience, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

From Other Sources:

Maven collects information from third parties, specifically:

Through Service Providers: Third parties may from time to time assist us with our business operations. As part of their services, they may collect and use information (including Personal Data) through the Services and share the collected information with us. For example, our service providers collect and share information (some of which may be Personal Data) to analyze the performance of the Services, detect and prevent fraud or to improve user experience.

When you sync your account with other services: When you use the premium version of the Services, we collect information from your employer, business partner, and/or client’s back-office system or other software when you sync your account with it. This data processing is done in order to facilitate your use of the Premium Services, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

When you Connect with Social Media through the Services: Certain Services may link with social media platforms and social media plug-ins (e.g., the Facebook "Like" button, "Share to Twitter" button) (collectively, “Social Media”). When you connect using your Social Media accounts, we may collect the Personal Data provided to or from that Social Media service provider. This data processing is done in order to let you connect the Services with your Social Media accounts and make use of this connection. Connecting with Social Media can improve the use of the Services and is therefore our legitimate interest under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Please review the privacy policies for your Social Media accounts to learn more about how Social Media account information is collected and shared with us.

4. Data Collection Technology

We use data collection technology to collect information about you and your use of the Services. Data collection technology deployed through the Services includes cookies and web beacons.

A cookie is a small text file that is sent to or accessed from your web browser or your computer’s hard drive. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., when it expires) and a randomly generated unique number or similar identifier. A cookie also may contain information about your computer, such as user settings, browsing history and activities conducted while using the Services. A web beacon (also called a pixel tag or clear GIF) is a piece of computer code that enables us to monitor user activity and website traffic. (To learn more about cookies and web beacons, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.)

Data collection technology facilitates your access to the Services by, for example, storing your password so you do not have to reenter it each time you use the Services. Data collection technology also helps improve functionality and determine which features users prefer by collecting information about your browser type, domain name of your Internet service provider, websites visited before and after visiting the Services and web pages viewed. We compile statistics about use of the Services to help us analyze technical and navigational information about the Services and to detect and prevent fraud.

The Services use the following cookies:

Maven also uses analytics services to collect Usage Data, such as Google Analytics. Generally, analytics services do not identify individual users. Many analytics services allow you to opt out of data collection. You may opt out of Google Analytics here.

We will request your consent for placing the above cookies when visiting the Site for the first time. Without your consent no cookies will be placed on your device, apart from the strictly necessary cookies for the Services requested by you. You might not be able to use the Services or parts of the Services without consenting to Cookies.

Some web browsers (including some mobile web browsers) provide settings that allow you to control or reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your device. To learn more, visit https://www.aboutcookies.org/how-to-delete-cookies. You also may be able to reject mobile device identifiers by activating the appropriate setting on your mobile device. For example, iOS version 6 and above devices feature Apple’s Advertising Identifier, which allows you to “Limit Ad Tracking” by going to your device’s settings, under “Privacy” and then “Advertising.” If you block cookies you may not have access to all features available through the Services. For more information about how to opt out of cookies, visit www.aboutcookies.org.

Interest-Based Advertising: Some of our cookies are used for interest-based advertisement. You can visit Ad Choices at http://youradchoices.com/ to indicate your preferences about interest-based advertising, including the option to make one “universal” opt-out of interest-based advertising with participating entities and detailed information about interest-based advertising. If you delete your cookies, you need to opt-out again. Opting out does not mean that you will no longer receive advertising when you use the Internet; it just means that the advertising you see displayed on websites will not be customized to your interests.

Do Not Track: Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about the browser’s user. For example, if you go to the “Privacy and Security” settings in the Safari browser, you can select “Do Not Track.” Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many website operators, including Maven, do not respond to DNT signals.

5. How We Share Your Information

Maven shares Personal Data collected through the Services as follows:

Service Providers: Maven shares information with Maven’s distributors and suppliers and third-party service providers that help us operate the Services. Maven enters into written agreements with each service provider that requires the service provider to protect your personal information. Such sharing of data is necessary to provide you with the Services pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Corporate Transactions: Maven may share and transfer Personal Data if Maven is involved in a merger, sale, acquisition, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, bankruptcy or other change of ownership or control by Maven or its parent or affiliated companies (in each case, whether in whole or in part). If not already lawful as part of a legal requirement under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR, such sharing of information serves Maven’s legitimate business interest of being able to sell or reorganize the company or parts thereof, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

Other Lawful Disclosures: Maven also shares information: (i) as required or permitted by law pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR; (ii) if we determine that disclosure of specific information is necessary to comply with the request of a law enforcement or regulatory agency or other legal process pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR; (iii) to protect the rights, privacy, property, interests or safety of Maven or our affiliated companies, customers, employees or the general public pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR; (iv) to pursue available remedies or limit damages pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR; (v) to enforce Maven’s agreements with you pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR; and (vi) to respond to an emergency pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e) GDPR.

Business partners: Maven may share your Personal Data with businesses with which we partner to offer you our products or services including, but not limited to, enterprise partners such as companies that our users sell for and who have a contractual relationship with Maven. Maven may share information about you, your customers and relevant purchase history with them. This option is made available if the business partner makes this feature available and you elect to sync your back-office system hosted by the respective business partner with Maven. This sharing of data is necessary in order to facilitate the synchronization chosen by you, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

6. How We Protect And Store Information

Maven deploys administrative, physical and technical safeguards intended to help protect information that we collect, process and store. Unfortunately, however, no safeguards are foolproof. Your use of the Services is at your own risk and Maven expects that you will use appropriate security measures to protect information that you process through the Services.

You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account credentials and other authentication involved in obtaining access to password-protected or secure areas of the Services. Maven will treat access to the Services through your account credentials as authorized by you. Unauthorized access to password-protected or secure areas is prohibited and may lead to criminal prosecution.

We may suspend your use of all or part of the Services without notice if we suspect or detect any breach of security. If you believe that information you provided to us is no longer secure, please notify us immediately using the contact information provided below.

We store and retain information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which you provided the information, to comply with legal obligations, to resolve disputes, to enforce our agreements with you and for similar essential purposes. Data that is not necessary anymore for any purpose is deleted.

7. Your Rights as a Data Subject

Under European Privacy Law, you have a number of rights which you may exercise in respect to your Personal Data that Maven collects and stores:

  • the right to withdraw your consent to data processing at any time (Please not that this might prevent you from using certain aspects of the Services or the Services altogether)
  • the right of access your Personal Data;
  • the right to amend and rectify any inaccuracies in your Personal Data;
  • the right to erase your Personal Data;
  • the right to data portability, meaning to request a transfer of your Personal Data from Maven to any other person or entity as chosen by you;
  • the right to request restriction of the processing of your Personal Data; and
  • the right to object to processing of your Personal Data.
  • You may exercise these rights free of charge. These rights will be exercisable subject to limitations as provided for by European Privacy Law. Any requests to exercise the above listed rights may be made to: [email protected]

    You may also lodge a complaint with the competent Data Protection Authority if you are dissatisfied with the manner in which your Personal Data is used by us.

    7. Unsubscribing

    You may instruct Maven to stop sending you emails, newsletters, or other information by submitting a request at [email protected] with your name, address, email address, and your opt-out instructions with “UNSUBSCRIBE” in the subject, or, if available, following the ‘unsubscribe’ instructions provided. Maven may, however, continue to use your Personal Data to contact you to service your account or as otherwise authorized by law. Please note that if you use more than one name or email address when communicating with Maven or using the Services, you may continue to receive communications from Maven to any name or email address not specified in your opt-out request. We will also provide an individual opt-out or opt-in choice before we share your Personal Data with third parties other than as specified in this Privacy Policy or before we use it for a purpose other than as specified in this Privacy Policy. To limit the use and disclosure of your Personal Data, please submit a written request to [email protected]

    8. The Services Are Not For Children

    The Services are not directed to or intended for use by minors. Consistent with the requirements of the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, if we learn that we received any information directly from a child under age 13 without his or her parent’s verified consent, we will use that information only to inform the child (or his or her parent or legal guardian) that he or she cannot use the Services.

    9. California Residents

    California Code Section 1798.83 permits individual California residents to opt out of Maven’s disclosure of Personal Data to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. California law also permits residents of California to request and obtain from us once per year, free of charge, a list of the third parties (if any) to whom we have disclosed Personal Data for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of Personal Data disclosed to those third parties. Please note, however, that Maven does not disclose your Personal Data to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If Maven changes this policy, we will update this provision and provide instructions on how you may make a request for details concerning such information.

    10. Links To Other Websites And Services

    The Services may include links to third-party websites and services that are not operated by us. When you click these links, you are navigating away from the Services. A link to a third-party website or digital service does not mean that we endorse it or the quality or accuracy of information presented on it. If you decide to visit a third-party website or digital service, you are subject to its privacy practices and policies, not ours. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any Personal Data that you provide to these other websites and services.

    When linking to a third-party website, we do our best to evaluate the content of the website. However, we cannot guarantee that all content found on the website is compliant with the applicable law, including privacy law, especially if content is being added or amended at a later time. If you feel like any third-party website that Maven links to includes inappropriate content or infringes on your Privacy Rights, please contact [email protected], and we will review the issue as soon as possible.

    11. Notice To Users Outside The United States

    Maven is headquartered in the United States. The Services are governed by United States law. If you are using the Services from outside of the United States, your information may be transferred to, stored and processed in the United States where our servers are located. In accordance with and as permitted by applicable law and regulations, we reserve the right to transfer your information, process and store it outside your country of residence to wherever we or our third party service providers operate. We participate in the E.U. - U.S. and Swiss - U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks and comply with the Privacy Shield Principles. Click https://www.privacyshield.gov to learn more. Any transfer from a European Maven entity to a US Maven entity is done under compliance with the “Privacy Shield”-certification.

    By using the Services and/or communicating with a Maven via mail, email or telephone, you consent to your information being transferred to our facilities in the United States and to the facilities of those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Privacy Policy.

    12. EU-US PRIVACY SHIELD

    Maven complies with the E.U. - U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. Maven is covered by its privacy shield certification, participates in and has certified its compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (the "Privacy Shield Framework"). Maven is committed to subjecting all Personal Data, including personal information, received in the US from European Union (EU) member countries, in reliance on the Privacy Shield Framework, to the Framework’s applicable Principles of Notice, Choice, Accountability for Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation, Access, and Recourse, Enforcement and Liability ("European Personal Data"). To learn more about the Privacy Shield Framework, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce's Privacy Shield List here.

    Under the Privacy Shield Framework, Maven collections, uses, and discloses European Personal Data for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. The choices and means that we offer for limiting use and disclosure of European Personal Data are described above in Section4, and we provide access as described in Section 5. Maven is responsible for the processing of European Personal Data that it transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. We remain liable in accordance with the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that we engage to process such European Personal Data on our behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, unless we prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

    With respect to European Personal Data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Framework, Maven is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. In certain situations, Maven may be required to disclose European Personal Data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including meeting national security or law enforcement requirements.

    In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Maven commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your European Personal Data. For inquiries or complaints regarding this Privacy Policy, you may contact Maven by emailing [email protected] Maven will respond within 45 days.

    Maven has further committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the U.S. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not resolved your complaint, please contact JAMS or visit https://www.jamsadr.com/eu-us-privacy-shield for more information or to file a complaint. The services of JAMS are provided at no cost to you.

    A complaining party has the possibility, under certain conditions, to invoke binding arbitration for complaints regarding Privacy Shield compliance not resolved by any of the other Privacy Shield mechanisms.

    Maven’s commitments under the Privacy Shield program are subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the United States Federal Trade Commission.

    13. Changes To This Privacy Policy

    The Effective Date of this Privacy Policy is set forth at the top of this webpage. We reserve the right to change our Privacy Policy as business needs or applicable law require. If Maven makes material changes to the way we use Personal Data, Maven will (unless otherwise required by law) attempt to notify you by email or through a notice posted in the Services before the changes take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the Effective Date of the revised Privacy Policy constitutes your acceptance of the revised Privacy Policy. The revised Privacy Policy replaces and supersedes all previous versions.
