Plain-English Privacy Policy

Welcome! I’m your Sweep Imp. Here on the left you’ll find our plain-English privacy policy which is not legally binding, and the corresponding legal policy on the right.

Legal Privacy Policy

Date of Last Revision: April 10, 2019

Welcome to the web site (the “Site”) of Sweep Imp ( “Sweep Imp”, “we”, “us” and/or “our” or “Operator”). This Site is operated by Sweep Imp and has been created to provide information about our company and its content and data linking platform and related services (together with the Site, the “Service(s)”) to our Service visitors ). This Privacy Policy sets forth Sweep Imp’s policy with respect to information including personally identifiable data (“Personal Data”) and other information that is collected from visitors to the Site and Services.

The processing and collection of personal data is governed by the US law and by the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”), and whenever you provide the Operator such information, the Operator will only use your information in line with all applicable data protection laws, including the GDPR. At all times, You are in control of Your information, and You can withdraw Your consent to provide Your information to the Operator except for information which is necessary for the Service’s functionality.

The data controller of the Service Sweep Imp which is the entity which decides how Your personal information is processed and for what purposes as detailed in the Privacy Policy.

To exercise your rights, please contact the Operator’s Data Protection Officer at the following contact details: Sweep Imp, 870 N. Miramar Avenue, 32903, Indialantic, Florida, or at support@sweepimp.com.

Your Rights Regarding Your Personal Information

GDPR is a really good set of rules protecting  your privacy, you can ask me what kind of data I save about you, ask to erase some or all of it (AKA “the right to be forgotten”), and other things.

By the way, I would have also done that for you without GDPR.

Under the GDPR and subject to different exemptions, You have the following rights:

  • To access Your personal data and receive a copy of Your personal data upon Your request;
  • To rectify, erase or restrict Your information upon Your request (right to be forgotten);
  • To object to the processing of Your information except for what is necessary for the Website’s functionality;
  • To request that the Operator will provide You with Your personal information and, if possible, to transmit Your data directly to another data controller (right to data portability).
  • To withdraw Your consent for collecting and processing Your information at any time.

No fees are required for exercising any of the above rights. However, and subject to the GDPR, the Operator may charge You a reasonable fee including administration fees if Your request is repetitive or excessive or demands the Operator to bear excessive and/or expensive efforts.

Database and Use of Information

All the data I collect about you is intended for me being of better service to you. I am not doing anything shady with any data I have – just improving myself.

In short – “everything I do – I do it for you”.

All collected information as stated above at the Operator’s possession. With accordance to Your consent, the Operator warrants to use such information for the following purposes:

  • Enabling convenient and efficient use;
  • Improving and enriching existing services and content;
  • Modifying and/or removing existing services and content;
  • Performing research and providing statistic information to third parties (in such case, the provided information will not identify You);
  • Enforcing the Operator’s Terms;
  • Providing You unique services including sending you newsletters upon providing Your email address;
  • Reviewing content You uploaded via the Service;
  • Collecting debts including unpaid subscription fees;
  • Any other purpose detailed in the Terms and this Privacy Policy.

Your information is collected and used because the Operator has a legitimate business interest for Your personal data to be used for the above purposes. This enables the Operator to send You relevant and personalized content designed to improve Your use of the Website. You have the right to object to this by contacting the Operator. Please note that if you object, this may affect the Operator’s ability to send personalized content to You and to offer You relevant content.

Please note that some of the information You will be requested to provide is necessary for providing You the Services. Therefore, Your refusal to provide some information may result in You not receiving the Services since the Operator will not be practically able to provide you the Services.

Third-Party Service Integration

To use Sweep Imp, which is me, I need to store your credentials for third-party social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc), which I store encrypted in my database, and are only used to access data you tell me to. I also log certain non-identifiable information to provide support and fix problems.

Our Service allows you to share on, and interact with, various online social media services (“Social Media Services”). In order to take advantage of this feature, you may need to authenticate, register for or log into Social Media Services through the Service or on the websites of their respective providers. When you enable linking between or log in to Social Media Services through the Service, we will collect relevant information necessary to enable the Service to share on your behalf on that Social Media Services and your data (“Login Credentials”). We store your Login Credentials long enough to enable linking to the Social Media Services.

When you enable the Service to share on Social Media Services, the Social Media Services will provide us with access to certain information that you may have provided to the Social Media Services, and we will use, store and disclose such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the rules you set to govern the linking. However, please remember that the manner in which Social Media Services use, store and disclose your information is governed by the policies of such Social Media Services, and Sweep Imp shall have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any Social Media Services that may be enabled within the Service.

We may retain certain personally non-identifiable information related to the data shared to Social Media Services (for example, date sent, link configuration, names of the Social Media Services), for the purpose of improving our Services and as described below in the “Non-Identifiable Data” section.

Third-Party Payment Processor

My makers use a third party payment processors, BlueSnap and ChargeBee, for all payments. I don’t store credit card details and instead rely on BlueSnap and ChargeBee for this.

We use a third party payment processor to process payments made to us. In connection with the processing of such payments, we do not retain any personally identifiable information or any financial information such as credit card numbers. Rather, all such information is provided directly to our third party processors, BlueSnap and ChargeBee, whose use of your personal information is governed by their privacy policy, which may be viewed at https://home.bluesnap.com/privacy-policy and https://www.chargebee.com/privacy, respectively.

Information I Collect

I will ask you for your name, email address, timezone, and account credentials, or get them through your social media login, to use my service. I use this information to do my job and other things mentioned in this Privacy policy (like logging and analytics).

For your convenience, I use cookies so you don’t have to log in every time you visit my website.

When you interact with us through the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:

My Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information

My makers nor I will sell or rent your personal information to a third party. Primarily, I use personal data to run my service. I may use personal data to provide you with predictions about other services I provide you might be interested in. If my makers or myself intend to use your personal data in a way we have not mentioned, I will let you know when I collect that information.

Sometimes I aggregate user data anonymously to understand my masters (that’s you!) better.

Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information

My makers don’t sell your personal data. If my makers work with partners or contractors, they may have limited access to your personal data but only so much to do their job.

If my makers sell the company, personal data may be included in the transfer.

You can visit the Services without providing any Personal Data. If you choose not to provide any Personal Data, you may not be able to use certain Sweep Imp Services.

Sweep Imp is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.

Related Companies: We may also share your Personal Data with our Related Companies for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: Sweep Imp, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies which it trusts  to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.

Legal Requirements: Sweep Imp may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Sweep Imp, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.

Retaining Your Information

I only save your personal information for the time I need it, or until you request to remove it.

The Operator will only retain Your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes it was collected for including, but not only, for the purposes of complying with legal, accounting, security, auditing and/or reporting requirements. The retention period is determined based on the amount, nature, and sensitivity of Your personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of Your information, the purposes for which the Operator processes Your information and whether such purposes can be achieved through other means with accordance to any applicable law.

Your personal information will be retained for a period starting from the date of providing Your consent to collect Your personal information and until You request the Operator to delete Your information, thereafter all of Your information is removed from the Operator’s systems.

Exclusions

If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 18 has provided Personal Data to Sweep Imp through the Services, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.

Links to Other Web Sites

I have links to a lot of third-party websites. My privacy policy only governs my own service and website.

This Privacy Policy applies only to the Services. The Services may contain links to other web sites not operated or controlled by Sweep Imp (the “Third-Party Sites”). The policies and procedures we described here do not apply to the Third-Party Sites. The links from the Services do not imply that Sweep Imp endorses or has reviewed the Third-Party Sites. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.

Security

My makers and me take many steps to ensure your private information and account credentials are safe. To this end, if you find a security problem, contact my support team and they will fix it immediately. Keep in mind, emails and communications with me are not encrypted.

Sweep Imp takes reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data provided via the Services from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, email sent to or from the Services may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personal Data to Sweep Imp via the Internet.

Email Updates

I will send you notifications and reminders in order to help, but you can always opt out if you don’t want to get them.

The Operator may offer to all its users to receive email messages and/or newsletters and/or any other means of communication about updates, improvements and other user notifications regarding the Operator’s activity, including, but not limited to, via emails and SMS (the “Mailings”).
