The People Platform™ Privacy Policy

The People Platform™ is owned and operated by Epicenter Experience LLC “Company”. Company takes your privacy seriously. We recognize that privacy is an important issue, so we design and operate our services with the protection of your privacy in mind.

By visiting or using any Company's applications, website and services, and any other linked pages, features, content, or any other services we offer from time to time by in connection therewith (collectively, the "Services"), you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you hereby consent that we will collect, use, and share your information in the following ways.

Types of Information Collected

The term "personally identified information” “PII" as used in this Privacy Policy refers to personally identifiable information that specifically identifies an individual (such as an individual's first and last name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card or other account number), and information about that individual or such individual's activities or preferences when such information is directly linked to personally identifying information. The Services collect Personal Data when you interact with it: for example, when you collect rewards, check-in to locations, submit postings; register for membership services; respond to questions; register for opportunities; or seek help from our customer service departments. We also may collect information when you purchase products or services offline. Because providing detailed information regarding our privacy policy when you register or providing information in connection with these other services often proves impractical, you may instead be provided with a short notice that reminds you to refer to this Privacy Policy and other relevant information from us. We may also obtain Personal Data from reputable third parties, such as partnering app developers.

Personal information does not include "aggregate" information, which is data we collect about the use of the Sites or categories of Site users, from which any personal information has been removed. We may collect aggregate data for a number of purposes, including improving the Service, to diagnose technical issues, to help identify user needs so that we can better consider new products and services, and to tailor existing products and services to better serve our users. This Privacy Policy in no way limits or restricts our collection, use or disclosure of aggregate information.
