Plain English Summary:
To sum it up, we won’t spam you and we won’t share your personally identifiable information with unrelated third parties for marketing purposes without your permission.
We conduct various market research surveys to help companies understand who their customers are and what is important to them. Putting these findings to work helps our clients serve their customers better in all facets of their business and also helps them understand how to best recruit new customers that are most likely to want their product or service as well as make a wide variety of strategic decisions to help their business.
Unless explicitly stated otherwise we never share your personally identifiable information with our clients or users. All of our analytic tools present findings for our clients and users on an anonymous basis.
To execute, monitor and improve our services we use a variety of tracking methods to determine how you use LoudDoor and our clients’ websites, social media profiles and applications. We aggregate that data and compare your usage with others so that we can optimize product offerings and advertisements, but we never share any of your personally identifiable information with anyone in this process.
We host data with various vendors who help deliver our services (web hosts, email service providers, web analytics, etc) but these entities are not allowed to market to you in any way.
That’s pretty much it. The full legal version follows for your reading pleasure.
Full Legal Version:
You should not disclose any material non-public information relating to any company nor provide any information that violates any obligations you may have, including any confidentiality agreement with or other duty to a third party. Your participation is voluntary and should be in compliance with your employer’s policies, if applicable. A response is not required to all questions. Please provide all responses based on only personal observations, rather than those of your employer more generally.
Information we Collect
We will collect personal information about you to respond to your request for services offered through the LoudDoor Properties. We may also collect personal information from you in order to notify you about products, services, and other opportunities we think will be of interest to you from LoudDoor and our clients.
Information we collect through LoudDoor Properties may include, but is not limited to, the following:
Facebook Profile Data: Upon request, and with your explicit permission allowing access to a LoudDoor application on Facebook, we may collect certain data from your Facebook profile. This data will vary from time to time but may include your basic profile information, demographics (such as gender, age, location etc), the things you “like”.
Other Social Media Profile Data: Upon request, and with your explicit permission by allowing access to the data, we may also collect data from other social media websites, applications and platforms.
Responses to Survey Questions: Most LoudDoor Properties will request responses to survey questions.
Other Contact Information: If you choose to register on one of our Properties, we may request your e-mail address and other contact information.
We primarily use your data to provide anonymous consumer analytics to LoudDoor clients and users. These analytics typically include product and service ratings, details on consumer behaviors and attitudes, and other anonymous analytics related to the things certain groups tend to like or follow on social media. This is generally done using our proprietary algorithms that compare your demographics, attitudes and behaviors with other consumers that are similar to you (ie they may be the same age and gender and also share many of your Likes/Follows on Facebook and Twitter or answer survey questions in the same way you do). We may also use your data to better understand how you engage and interact with LoudDoor Properties, our clients, other users, and various third parties.
Your data may also be used to contact you for various promotions and to provide information about or customize your services provided by LoudDoor Properties.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
We may share personal information about you under the following circumstances:
To Fulfillment Providers
We may share your personal information with another company if you engage in a transaction through LoudDoor. For example, we may sell products that are fulfilled by drop shipment from a manufacturer or retailer partner. In these situations, your information will be provided to the partner to fulfill your order.
We sometimes disclose the information we collect to companies that operate various services for us such as email distribution or certain product functionalities. These vendors have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, and may not share it with others or use it for any other purpose.
Subsidiaries, Parent or Sister Companies
We may share personal and demographic information about you with our subsidiaries, parent company, or sister companies.
As Permitted by Law
We may be required to share your personal information with law enforcement or government agencies in response to subpoenas, court orders, federal/state audits or similar circumstances. We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or as otherwise required by law.
As with any other business, it is possible that LoudDoor in the future could merge with or be acquired by another company. If such an acquisition occurs, the successor company would have access to the information maintained by LoudDoor, including your personal information, customer and business account information, but would continue to be bound by this policy unless you consent otherwise.
LoudDoor maintains commercially reasonable technical, administrative, and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of personal Information. Additionally, only those authorized employees, contractors, and agents who have a need to know personal Information in connection with the performance of their services are allowed to access this information. In addition, these individuals and or entities are required to be bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to disciplinary actions, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet their confidentiality obligations. In the unlikely event that we suffer a breach of our security systems and an individual or entity gains unauthorized access to any personal Information stored on our servers, we will immediately investigate such security breach, and will provide prompt notice to any individual whose personal Information was affected.
Your personal Information and survey responses may be collected, stored, processed, used, and transferred to affiliated companies or non-affiliated service providers in one or more countries outside your originating country. By using our websites or applications, you freely and specifically consent to the transfer, storage, use, and disclosure of your personal Information among our affiliated companies and non-affiliated service providers, wherever located. Our service providers are contractually bound to respect the confidentiality of your personal information.
Advertisements and Third-Party Ad Servers
You may receive advertisements for the LoudDoor family of web properties from third parties. For instance, when visiting a third-party website, you may receive a “pop up” window advertising a LoudDoor site. Please note that such advertisements are served by the third-party website that you have visited and are not controlled by LoudDoor. In addition, such advertisements may be placed by third-party ad servers or ad networks. These companies may employ Cookies and other technology to measure advertising effectiveness. You may find more information at the website of the individual ad network.
IP Addresses and Unique Third-Party Identifiers
We also keep track of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and some Third-Party Identifiers (including Facebook IDs). An IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet. A unique third-party identifier is an ID third parties use to optimize the user experience for individual users.
We employ a software technology called Pixels (a.k.a. Web Beacons or Clear Gifs) that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Pixels are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, and are used to track the online movement of Web users. Pixels can also be used to target advertisements to you across the Internet. We also use Pixels in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails the recipients have opened. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If users would like to opt-out of these emails, please see the unsubscribe instructions in any email you receive.
Aggregation for optimization
We will use a combination of some or all of the methods listed above to create user data profiles which are analyzed, compared and aggregated for our use to optimize the design, implementation, and management of the web properties owned or operated by LoudDoor, our subsidiaries, parent company, and sister companies and the web properties owned or operated by clients of LoudDoor, our subsidiaries, parent company, and sister companies. This optimization service may be offered to outside entities for a fee as part of a service offering or as a stand-alone product. No personally identifiable information will be transferred to third parties without your affirmative consent.
