Crowd0 Privacy Notice

1. Introduction

Welcome to Crowd0. This Privacy Notice explains how we collect, use, disclose, and safeguard your personal information when you use our crowdfunding platform (the “Service”). Please read it carefully. We are committed to protecting the privacy, confidentiality and security of the personal information we hold by complying with the requirements of the United Kingdom's Data Protection Act 2018 and Europe's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

2. Personal Information we Collect

We collect personal information you provide to us, such as your name, email address, and payment information. We may also collect information about your device and usage of our Service, including IP address, browser type, operating system, and other technical information.

3. How We Use your Personal Information

We use your personal information to enable and improve our Service, to process transactions, to communicate with you, to secure our Service, and to comply with legal obligations

4. Disclosure of Your Personal Information

We may share your personal information with third parties as necessary to enable and improve our Service, such as payment processors and service providers. We may also disclose your personal information if required by law.

5. Your Rights

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018), you have certain rights regarding your personal information, including the right to access, rectify, or erase your personal information, restrict or object to its processing, and transfer your personal information to another service provider.

6. Rewards and Fulfilment

We implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal information against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access. This includes:

- Collecting and storing only the necessary personal information required for use of the 'Service'.
- Storing the data we do collect with a third-party data storage provider, MongoDB, which implements technological security measures including fire walls, encryption and anti-virus software. View their Privacy Policy here.
- Managing and storing all payment information through our payment processor, Square, which has administrative, technical and physical safeguards in place to protect customer information including the encryption of customer information to their servers regardless of whether the data was submitted using private or public Wi-Fi or cellular data service through a phone. View their Privacy Policy here. Despite these safety measures, transmission of information through the internet is not entirely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of the transmission or storage of your information. Any transmission is at your own risk.

7. International Data Transfers

If we transfer your personal information outside of the UK or the European Economic Area, we ensure appropriate safeguards are in place as required by the GDPR and DPA 2018.
