1. What personally-identifiable information is collected?

In order to provide the service, Glimps cvba stores one piece of your personal data: your e-mail address. Glimps cvba, acting as host of the platform, processes it when you sign in on the platform. This is done to enable communication with you (including e-mail notification of updates in the discussions in which you participate). These data are not shared with anyone, and are not kept if you decide to leave this online community website. If you would rather keep your email address private, we recommend registering to this website via a one-time email address. Services such as GuerrillaMail will provide one for free.

You can (and should, because it looks nicer) beautify your user profile on this website with a username and an avatar. You are welcome to use (or not) your real name as username and your real picture as avatar. We don’t care, and we will never check.

You have the right to request information on the personal data concerning you that we store, and you have the right to request its correction or deletion. To do so, write to winnie@glimps.bio.

Please be aware that this website is a public space where you are responsible for what you post: if you are unsure as to whether it is legal or appropriate to post something, please don’t. Also we ask that you are mindful and protective of your fellow online community members, especially the younger members. If you notice unpleasant or inappropriate behaviour (read: trolling or creepiness) please alert the Glimps cvba team by emailing us at: winnie@glimps.bio.

2. How may Glimps cvba use my personally-identifiable information?

Glimps cvba uses your personally-identifiable information to fulfill your requests for information, publish your posts or comments and attribute them to you as their author, process your requests to participate in conferences and events, evaluate any job applications to the Glimps cvba organization, recruit personnel, distribute newsletters and alerts to you, personalize content that you view or receive, evaluate and improve our services, and for such other purposes as you may initiate or request. We may keep any of your personally-identifiable information on file and use it to contact you. NB: we keep a spam-free, opt in only, policy for our newsletters.

3. Who can you talk to about data protection?

@Val.Muresan is in charge of data protection. You can contact him by sending a direct message on this website, or an e-mail to winnie@glimps.bio.

4. Cookies

What are “cookies” used for on this website? To administer our website and for research purposes, Glimps cvba has also contracted with third parties (Google Analytics) to track and analyze anonymous usage and volume statistical information from our visitors and members. Such information is shared externally only on an anonymous, aggregated basis. They use persistent cookies to help us to improve the visitor experience, manage our site content, and track visitor behavior.

Glimps cvba currently also uses MailChimp to send e-mail to people who have subscribed to our newsletters. To help measure and improve the effectiveness of our e-mail communications, we assume that they set cookies. All data collected by MailChimp and Google on behalf of Glimps cvba is used solely by or on behalf of Glimps cvba and is shared externally only on an anonymous, aggregated basis. We are slowly migrating away from third party services.

We don’t seek to collect your personal information, and, where we do collect it, we strive to anonymize your personal information as soon as practicable.

5. Mobile applications

In the case that we make applications connection available for mobile devices, Glimps cvba may use third-party services to track and analyse user activity in order to fix errors, monitor usage, and improve the performance of the applications. However, this will not happen without a community discussion and consensus around safety guidelines we feel we can stand for.

6. Newsletters and alerts

By registering with recurring newsletters or notifications, you agree to receive on occasion other correspondence from Glimps cvba related to the subscribed newsletters and other Glimps cvba news and information that you consented to receive during registration.

We ask for your e-mail address at registration. We will send e-mails to this address to confirm your registration, to provide newsletters or notification and to contact you for any other reason. In addition, we may contact you regarding your account status. If you sign up to receive any of our newsletters, alerts, or surveys, you may on occasion receive other correspondence from Glimps cvba. Your e-mail address will not be shared with any third party other than MailChimp which we use to send e-mails on our behalf.

7. Is personally-identifiable information disclosed to third parties?

Glimps cvba does not intentionally disclose or transfer (and takes reasonable steps to prevent the unauthorized or accidental disclosure of) your personally-identifiable information to third parties without your consent, whether for such third parties’ marketing purposes or otherwise. When we use third party services like MailChimp, we check to the best of our ability that they commit to maintain the confidentiality of your information including email addresses, and that they provide an acceptable level of data security.

8. Surveys

If you participate in a survey, all of our research results are reported as totals or in other aggregated form, and no information about you as an individual respondent is made public.

9. User forums

Whenever you publicly disclose information on the Internet, there is always a risk that the information is collected and used by others. Glimps cvba is not responsible for any action or policies of any third parties who collect information that users publicly disclose on any of the websites we maintain.

10. Links to third-party sites

Glimps cvba may provide links to third-party websites or information as a service to our community and users of our websites. If you use these links, you will leave the sites we maintain. The links do not constitute or imply an endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation by Glimps cvba of the third party, the third party website, or the information contained on them. Glimps cvba is never responsible or liable for your use of the third party sites or the information on them. When you use third-party sites or services, then it is not our terms of use and privacy policies that are applicable, but those provided by the organisations running the third-party sites and services.

11. How can I access, change, and/or delete information?

To access, correct, update, and/or delete any personally-identifiable information that you submit to Glimps cvba please either follow instructions on the page of the webite on which you have provided the information or contact us at winnie@glimps.bio. To unsubscribe from mailing lists you follow instructions provided in the newsletters themselves.

12. Security

We use good practice measures to secure your privacy. This especially means that all your connections to the communities.edgeryders.eu website are SSL encrypted, and that your passwords are stored in a way that does not allow to transform them back to the original text.

However, in the current technological and legal landscape, we cannot guarantee 100% privacy, esp. not against government actors. So, please consider Glimps cvba as a public space for discussion on which you could potentially be identified. Which means, only post law-abiding information and data here, and nothing that could cause you problems in other ways if connected to your identity. For legitimate uses of illegally publishing information (for example, whistleblowing), there are other platforms …

13. Transborder hosting and transfer of information

The Glimps cvba website is hosted and backed up within the European Union only. We do not think that the Safe Harbour agreement between the EU and the United States of America has any value, so we do not transfer the website or backups of its database there. Of course, publicly available parts of the website can be downloaded from anywhere in the world.

14. Data Retention Policy

Content on this website is hosted indefinitely, even after the author deletes their account – because it was published under open content licences. Other information associated with the account is deleted when you delete your account on this website. However note that you can edit your own content after publishing it, and this website will only publish the new version then. Older versions are accessible as revisions, but you can request their deletion.

15. Children

The site is not designed for or directed at children 13 years of age or younger, and Glimps cvba will not intentionally collect or maintain information about anyone under this age. That said, our community managers maintain friendly, respectful and welcoming environments conducive to mutual support and collaboration. If you notice or suspect any inappropriate behavior please contact winnie@glimps.bio.

16. Consent; Changes to this document

By using this website, you consent to the collection, use, and storage of your information by us in the manner described in this Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service from time to time. We will alert you to relevant changes by updating the contents of this page. You can see the full history of changes, including the date of the latest version, by looking at the version history of this page (click the pen icon to the right above the page text area).
