POLICY AND AGREEMENTS


All the participants of Cooperacy -including those of any of its Ideas or Projects- want to respect everyone’s privacy and applicable data protection and privacy laws. The dream is about a world in which every information is shared with no harm, but the path to that ideal has to respect the intimate needs and desires of everyone. So Cooperacy process created by humans are designed in a way that takes care of these aspects, starting from the communication of this privacy policy (“Policy”). It tells how Cooperacy, that is made of all of its participants, behaves as “data controller” and uses personal data every time this Policy is mentioned. “Personal data” means information about an identifiable individual. If there are special differences about a specific Cooperacy Project Policy that differ from this Policy, the Project Policy will list them. The differences will substitute this very Policy only in the cases or points listed in the Project Policy. When there is the possibility to choose wether to give or not personal information, Cooperacy will make it explicit, so that anybody will be able to freely choose according to their preferences. Software on any device may access personal information. Cooperacy products or services may link to other companies’ websites and services that have privacy policies of their own. Cooperacy and its participants are not responsible for the privacy practices of others and it is recommended to read their privacy notices. If there is disagreement with this Policy, use of Cooperacy products and services or providing Cooperacy with personal data is discouraged, not in the scopes nor responsibility of Cooperacy. Cooperacy collect personal data and other information when a purchase is made, during use or registration into Cooperacy's products and services, participation in campaigns or research or during other interaction with Cooperacy. Cooperacy products and services may require electronic activation, asking data about device and application type and unique device, application, network and subscription identifiers. Access to Cooperacy services online or Cooperacy web servers automatically creates visit records. IP-address, access times, the sites linked from, pages visited, the links and features used, the content viewed or requested, browser or application type, language or other similar information are collected. Cooperacy applications may contact Cooperacy or other servers periodically, for example to check for updates or to send Cooperacy information relating to service usage. Additionally, Cooperacy may invite to join voluntary product and service improvement or research programs where detailed information is collected. Information is provided during the creation of an account, a purchase, a request for services, a participation in research or campaigns or generally during every interaction with Cooperacy. A possible non-exhaustive list may include name, email address, phone number, street address, user names and passwords, feedback, information relating to personal devices, age, gender, language, bank account number, credit card details and other financial sensible data. All this information is used by Cooperacy to fulfil the goals every participant chose to support, that are to have a common ecosystem based on cooperation, equivalence, trust, care, transparency, freedom, understanding and diversity-inclusiveness. Cooperacy therefore maintains records of consents, preferences and settings related to location data, marketing data, personal data, data sharing, et cetera. Cooperacy also maintain records of purchases, downloads, contents provided, requests, agreements, payment and delivery details, personal contacts and communications and other interactions with Cooperacy, including the products and services provided by Cooperacy. Cooperacy may, in accordance with applicable law, record any communications with the Cooperacy customer care or with other similar contact points. Location-based services establish location through the use of satellite, mobile, Wi-Fi or other network based positioning methods. These technologies may involve exchanging location data and unique device or mobile, Wi-Fi or other network related identifiers with Cooperacy. Cooperacy products may operate on multiple device platforms, applications and services which may also collect location data. Cooperacy never use any information to identify anybody personally without their consent.

When you use Cooperacy location based services and features, for example location based search, navigation and routing, or request for map data or other location data, personal data is sent to Cooperacy to serve the user with the right content, which may also include location based advertising. Marketing and advertising are used here as per the common international meaning, and not to avoid any responsibility about the communication related to privacy, although Cooperacy want to free the world from induced needs and actions, so Cooperacy's marketing and advertising strategies every time possible are avoided, when present, they are not based on numeric profit acquisition and mainly human-focused. The purpose of collecting personal data is simply to better understand human diversity and provide individual diversity with equivalent possibility to fulfil personal expectations, desires, needs, or, simply put, to take care of everybody’s personality in order to help participants to have a fulfilling and pleasant life. Personal data provides Cooperacy products and services the possibility to process requests or to perform the agreements between the participants and Cooperacy, to ensure the functionality and security of Cooperacy products and services, to identify who interacts with Cooperacy as well as to prevent and investigate fraud and other misuses. Some services may require an account to help to manage content and preferences. Cooperacy may use personal data to better develop and manage products, services, customer care, sales and research. Cooperacy may combine personal data collected in connection with the use of a particular Cooperacy product and/or service with other personal data, unless such personal data was collected for a different purpose. Cooperacy may use personal data to communicate and inform, for example, services changes, notices or important alert relating to products and/or services, customer care related purposes, information about new products, services or functionalities, promotions, research, personalisations, recommendations, customised content, Cooperacy and possibly third party content.

Please consider carefully before disclosing any personal data or other information that might be accessible to others. Cooperacy may share personal data with other Cooperacy companies, institutions or authorised third parties who process personal data for Cooperacy. Examples range from billing through network service providers, delivery of purchases, provision of services including customer services, consumer data management and analysis, credit checks, research, marketing and other similar operations. When purchasing, requesting or subscribing a Cooperacy product or service with a network service provider plan, Cooperacy may need to exchange information with the network service provider to provide the desired service. Cooperacy may conduct joint marketing and other communications with operation-relevant partners, for example a mobile operator. To avoid duplicate or unnecessary communications or to better communicate and inform Cooperacy may need to match information that has been collected with information that a partner has collected where this is permitted by law.

A simple transfer, for example, from the UE to the USA may have this characteristics. In such cases Cooperacy ensure that there is a legal basis for such a transfer and that adequate protection for personal data is provided as required by applicable law, for example, by using standard agreements approved by relevant authorities (where necessary) and by requiring the use of other appropriate technical and organisational information security measures. Cooperacy may be obligated by mandatory law to disclose personal data to certain authorities or other third parties, for example, to law enforcement agencies in the countries where Cooperacy or third parties acting on Cooperacy behalf operate or for national security reasons in the countries where products and services are object of interaction. Cooperacy may also disclose and otherwise process personal data in accordance with applicable law to defend Cooperacy’s legitimate interests, for example, in civil or criminal legal proceedings.
