Collection and Use of PII - (“Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII”).
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Services, to administer your use of the Services (including your Account, if you are an Account holder) and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate through our Services.
Here are some examples of the types of PII we may collect and how we may use it.
How we collect and use information
When you register, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, phone number, email address, and birthdate.
How we use your PII
We also use PII to help us develop, deliver, and improve our Services.
From time to time, we may use your PII to send important notices, such as communications about Services and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. If you do not want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by unregistering at email@example.com
We may also use PII for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve The Big Challenge’s Services and customer communications.
Collection and Use of Non-PII
We also collect non-PII data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-PII for any purpose. We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, location, and the time zone where the Services are used so that we can better understand user behaviour and improve our Services.
If we do combine non-PII with PII, the combined information will be treated as PII for as long as it remains combined.
Disclosure to Third Parties
At times The Big Challenge may make certain PII available to strategic partners who work with The Big Challenge to provide products and services. PII will only be shared by The Big Challenge to provide or improve our Services.
The Big Challenge shares PII with companies who provide services such as hosting, information processing, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys.
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for The Big Challenge to disclose your PII. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all PII we collect to the relevant third party.
Protection of PII
The Big Challenge takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your PII against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
When you use The Big Challenge Apps or post on a chat room, or social networking service, the PII you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the PII you choose to submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.
Integrity and Retention of PII
Access to PII
For other PII, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to such PII so you can request that we correct or delete the PII we have about you. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. Access, correction, or deletion requests can be made by contacting The Big Challenge at firstname.lastname@example.org
In some cases we collect and store information about where you are located, such as by converting your IP address into a rough geolocation. We may use location information to improve and personalize our Services for you.
Our Companywide Commitment to Your Privacy
We take reasonable measures to protect the information that we collect from or about you (including your PII) from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information.
Law and Jurisdiction
This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with French law, and any disputes relating to this Agreement will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of France.
