What Information Do We Collect?
Curio uses artificial intelligence to discovery, schedule, share and analyze the best content for your audience right when they want it (collectively, “Services”). To deliver our services, Curio accesses publicly available information from social networking sites and services as well as non-public data that you authorize us to access and collect. For example, we analyze data from your activities (including messages, data or other content that you upload or post) on social networking sites and services, and the data from people you follow or friend (or otherwise connect with) as well as people who follow or friend you (or otherwise connect with).
You can browse some areas of our site without telling us who you are. In order to create an account and to access certain restricted sections of our service, you will be required to register and provide personal information. If you choose to give us personal information, you consent to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers located in the United States. We may collect and store the following personal information: email address and physical contact information, professional information (company name, position/title) transactional information based on your activities on usecurio.com or via our mobile apps, data related to the content you create on our site, in-app behavior for our mobile apps, support requests, chats, and correspondence sent to us; and standard web log information, such as connection information, your location, statistics on page views, traffic to and from our site, statistics on email open and click rates, and IP address.
We may receive location information from the social media services that you connect to Curio and when you authorize it, from your mobile device (“Geolocation Data”). We use Geo-Location Data to complete your profile, customize our service to make them more relevant to you and to your audience, and to provide you with location-specific content.
Payment for Curio is processed by Stripe. Curio does not collect or store credit card information.
How Secure Is The Information We Collect?
Your information is stored at world-class SSAE 16 and ISO 27001 certified, and Tier III Standards compliant data centers located in the United States. Curio is committed to industry best practices concerning security to prevent the loss, misuse and alteration of the information in our possession. However, as you know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private. Our entire site uses a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) session, which encrypts all transaction data for transmittal in a format that prevents theft of the information. While on a secure page, the lock at the bottom or top of a web browser becomes locked and this lets you know that you are in a secured session. Our servers are located in a secure, supervised environment. Our databases are accessible only by persons who have entered into and are bound by a confidentiality and nondisclosure agreement with us.
How Do We Use Your Information?
We will never resell or redistribute your information without your express permission. You agree that we may use your personal information to:
- provide the services and customer support you request, including content relevant to specific interests
- resolve disputes, collect fees, and troubleshoot problems
- prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities, and enforce our Terms of Service
- customize, measure and improve our services, content and advertising
- tell you about targeted marketing, service updates, and promotional offers based on your specific preferences
- compare your information for accuracy, and verify it with third parties
Occasionally, we conduct user surveys to learn how we can better serve you. These surveys are optional and if you choose to respond, your responses will be kept anonymous. The demographic information we collect in the registration process and through surveys is used to help us improve our services.
How Can You Use Information from Curio?
Curio allows users to share personal information when they post content to social networks. We encourage you to respect the privacy of others. You agree to use another person's or entity's information only for:
- the content you create through Curio
- other purposes that the other person or entity expressly permits
Neither we nor our users like spam. You may not add other Curio users to your mailing list (email or physical mail), or share, rent or sell other users’ contact information, without their express consent. To report Curio-related spam or spoof emails to Curio, please forward the email to us: email@example.com. You may not use our communication tools to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate our Terms of Service.
To Whom May We Disclose Your Information?
We never sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your express consent. If you don't wish to receive marketing communications from us, simply indicate your preference once you sign-in to your account on Curio or by following the directions provided in an email.
We may disclose personal information if we are legally required to do so, to enforce our policies, to respond to claims that content you submitted violates the rights of others, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of third parties. We may also share your personal information with:
- Service providers who help us with our business operations (such as fraud investigations, affiliate and rewards programs)
- Third parties to whom you expressly ask us to send your information (for example, when you post content directed to another person)
- Law enforcement or other governmental officials, in response to a verified request relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity (we will disclose information relevant to the investigation, such as name, city, state, zip code, telephone number, email address, nickname history, IP address)
In an effort to respect your privacy, we will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order or equivalent legal document, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.
How Do We Protect Children’s Privacy?
We do not intentionally or knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If you become aware that a child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us via the address below. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our files. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any Personal Information through the Services.
How Can You Protect Your Account?
Your password is your key to your account. Use unique numbers, letters and special characters, and do not share your password with anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken on your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify us and change your password.
How Can You Access, Review or Change Your Personal Information?
You can see, review and change your personal information in your account area on Curio. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate. If you request, we will close your account and remove your personal information from view as soon as reasonably possible. We do retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our Terms of Service, and take other actions permitted by law.
Third Parties and Other Social Media Services
This document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. Curio does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
Additionally, our site and mobile apps contain links to other web sites. The fact that we link to another site is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party. We do not exercise any control over third party websites.
