If you have any questions about this Privacy Notice, including any requests to exercise your legal rights referred to below, please contact us using the following email address: email@example.com.
IN A NUTSHELL
We gather publicly available information about influential individuals (“you”, “your” or “Influencer”). This collected information or personal data, is made available on Klear's platform (“Platform”) for its users and brands to discover, evaluate and manage their engagement with influential people.
This Privacy Notice describes how we collect and use your Personal Data when it is used on our influencer database, and your privacy rights. Please note that some provisions only apply to individuals in certain jurisdictions. “Personal Data” or “Personal Information” means any information that can be used, alone or together with other data, to uniquely identify any living human being. This Privacy Notice can be updated from time to time and, therefore, we ask you to check back periodically for the latest version. If we implement significant changes to the use of your Personal Data in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify you by posting a notice on our Website or by other means. This Privacy Notice supplements the other notices.
As controller: Klear is responsible for the collection and protection of Personal Data that it collects from publicly available sources and adds to our Platform. As such, we are a controller (or equivalent under applicable data protection legislation) of the Personal Data which we obtain about you (excluding CRM-Stored Influencer Data).
As processor: When a business customer of Klear uses our Platform, that customer may enter information relating to influencers into its Klear account. To the extent that information constitutes Personal Data under the GDPR, that information (excluding that certain publicly available influencer data for which Klear is the controller) is referred to in this Privacy Notice as “CRM-Stored Influencer Data”. To the extent we process CRM-Stored Influencer Data we generally do so as a processor (as defined in the GDPR or equivalent term under applicable data protection legislation) on behalf of that customer in respect of that CRM-Stored Influencer Data. This Privacy Notice does not apply to the processing of that CRM-Stored Influencer Data and the applicable customer will act as a controller in respect of that CRM-Stored Influencer Data and is responsible for obtaining all necessary consents and providing you with all requisite information as required by applicable law.
THE DATA WE COLLECT/PROCESS, AND HOW IT IS OBTAINED AND USED
- We collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of publicly available Personal Data about Influencers which is obtained directly or indirectly via various data sources such as social media networks and other Internet sources. This Personal Data may include the following: Your contact details, including email, name, user name, age and affiliated organization (if applicable); Your social media profile and activity; Messages which you have shared publicly on social media; and any other information you manifestly make public. Moreover, we collect the same data described above of Influencers who reach out to us and request to be included on the Platform in which case we collect the same information described above as well as user name, email address and password, provided voluntarily by you.
- Our Platform uses algorithms to construct profiles about individual influencers and therefore we may use the Personal Data to evaluate your behavior, preferences and interests (among other things) in your capacity as an Influencer. This usage may be considered profiling. In particular, these algorithms may assess your reach (e.g. size of your social media audience), relevance (e.g. the contextual affinity of your content to Klear's customers' areas of interest) and resonance (e.g. audience engagement with your social media content) in various areas. To the extent Klear's processing constitutes profiling under the GDPR (to the extent applicable), you have the right to specifically object to the processing of your Personal Data for the purpose of profiling in accordance with paragraph 7 below. To learn more, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We process your Personal Data mentioned above for the purposes of allowing users of our Platform to discover, evaluate and manage their engagement with Influencers, and to contact and interact with Influencers. The users can also see how many emails were sent through our Platform in total, how many were opened by you, and if the user included a link to their Klear Recruit landing page in the email, they can also see if you clicked on the Recruit landing page link.
