Personal Information Collected

The purpose of the Peeriosity website is to permit Members to voluntarily provide information about themselves for the purposes of developing, maintaining and enhancing a network of professional contacts in which on-line and direct collaboration on topics of common interest results. You willingly provide us certain personal information, which we collect in order to allow you to benefit from the Peeriosity website. If you have any hesitation about providing such information to us and/or having such information displayed on the Peeriosity website or otherwise used in any manner permitted in this Privacy Policy and the Member Agreement, you should not become a member of the Peeriosity community.

We collect your personal information in the following ways:

Registration

In order to become a Member, you must first create an account on our website. To create an account you are required to provide the following contact information, which you recognize and expressly acknowledge is personal information allowing others, including Peeriosity, to identify you: name, email address, country, ZIP/postal code, company name, job title, and a password chosen by you.

Profile Information

Once you become a Member, you may provide additional information in the Profile section describing your skills, professional experiences, and interests. Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration to become a Member is entirely optional, but enables you to better identify yourself and find new opportunities in the Peeriosity system to build and leverage your professional network. Any information you provide at registration or in the Profile section that is not personally identifiable may be used in the same manner and extent to which other information that is not personally identifiable is permitted to be used hereunder.

Peeriosity may collect information through the Peeriosity website in order to, among other things, accurately categorize and respond to a customer's inquiry and deliver appropriate service levels.

Uses of personal information

Peeriosity is an online service dedicated to helping our members collaborate with one another. The personally identifiable information you choose to provide on our website is used to help you describe yourself to other Members. Other information, that does not personally identify you as an individual, is collected by Peeriosity from Members (such as, for example, patterns of utilization) and is exclusively owned by Peeriosity. This information can be utilized by Peeriosity in such manner as Peeriosity, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate.

Peeriosity Communications

Peeriosity will communicate with you through email and notices posted on the Peeriosity website or through other means available through the service, including text and other forms of messaging. If we send any communications to you via the carrier service with which you have a mobile communications subscription or otherwise have access, you understand you will pay any service fees associated with any such access (including text messaging charges for messages to your mobile device). These include a series of welcome emails which help inform new Members about various features of the service. Please be aware that you will always receive certain emails from Peeriosity related to the proper functioning of your account, such as email notices when another Member in your peer group wishes to form a connection with you. You can change your e-mail and contact preferences at any time by logging into your "Account & Settings" and amending your email notification choices. If you wish, you can also opt-out of receiving promotional emails, by sending a request to support@Peeriosity.com.

Customized Content

Information provided to Peeriosity is also used to customize your experience on our website. For example, when you login to your account we will display the screen names of new Members who have recently joined your network as suggested connections for other Members.

Sharing Information with Third Parties

Peeriosity takes the privacy of Members very seriously. We do not sell, rent, or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to third parties for marketing purposes. We will only share your personally identifiable information with third parties to carry out your instructions or to provide specific services or information. For instance, we use a credit card processing company to bill Members for subscription fees. These third parties do not retain, share, or store any personally identifiable information except to provide these services and they are bound by confidentiality agreements which limit their use of such information.

Polls

As a Member, you will receive requests to participate in market research including polls and surveys submitted by other Peeriosity members. If you participate in surveys and polls offered through our website, the information you provide may be visible to others using the Peeriosity website. You may opt-out of participating by changing your Account & Settings to stop receiving these inquiries and requests.

Legal Disclaimer

It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information when required by law, such as responses to civil or criminal subpoenas, or other requests by law enforcement personnel. We will disclose such information wherein we have a good-faith belief that it is necessary to comply with a court order, ongoing judicial proceeding, subpoena, or other legal process or request to Peeriosity brought in any country throughout the world, or to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

Disclosures to Others

We may also disclose your personal and other information you provide, to another third party as part of a reorganization or a sale of the assets of a Peeriosity corporation division or company. Any third party to which we transfer or sell Peeriosity's assets will have the right to continue to use the personal and other information that you provide to us.

Closing Your Account

You can also close your account through the Peeriosity website. If you close your Peeriosity account, we will remove your name and other personally identifiable information from our publicly viewable database. We may retain certain data contributed by you if we believe it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, or for legitimate business purposes, such as analysis of aggregated, non-personally identifiable data, account recovery, or if required by law.

Your Obligations

As a Member, you have certain obligations toward the other Members with whom you will be communicating. Certain of these obligations are imposed by applicable law and regulations, and others have become commonplace in member-friendly communities of like-minded members, such as Peeriosity:

  • You must, at all times, respect the terms and conditions of the then-current Privacy Policy and the Member Agreement. This includes respecting all intellectual property rights which may belong to third parties (such as photographs).

More information about the U.S. Department of Commerce Safe Harbor Program can be found at http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/.
