With Others

  • With other companies who deliver services on our behalf, including via the use of cookies and similar automated technologies, third party analytics, and online tracking and interest-based advertising, as described below.

Aggregated and Anonymized Information

  • We also may share (within our group of companies or affiliates, or with service providers or other third parties) aggregated and anonymized information that does not specifically identify you or any individual user of our Services.

COOKIES AND OTHER SIMILAR AUTOMATED TECHNOLOGIES

When you interact with our online services, or open emails we send you, we obtain certain information using automated technologies, such as cookies, web server logs, web beacons, and other technologies. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an internet tag, pixel tag, or clear GIF, is a tiny graphic image that may be used in our websites or emails.

We use these automated technologies to collect your device information, internet activity information, and inferences as described above. These technologies help us to:

  • Remember your information so you do not have to re-enter it;
  • Track and understand how you use and interact with our online services and emails;
  • Tailor our online services to your preferences;
  • Measure how useful and effective our services and communications are to you; and
  • Otherwise manage and enhance our products and services.

We set some of these automated technologies ourselves, but others are set by third parties who deliver services on our behalf. For example, we may use other companies’ web analytics services (described in the “Third-Party Analytics Services” section), which use automated technologies to help us evaluate how individuals use our websites.

Your browser can alert you when cookies are placed on your device, and how you can stop or disable them via your browser settings. Please note, however, that without cookies all of the features of our online services may not work properly. If you use a mobile device, you can manage how your device and browser share certain device data by changing the privacy and security settings on your mobile device. You can learn more about cookies and how to manage your preferences by visiting http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

THIRD-PARTY ANALYTICS SERVICES

We may use third-party analytics service providers to help us with our online services such as Google Analytics and Facebook. The analytics providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web beacons, and web server logs to help us analyze how you use our online services. We may disclose your site-use information (including IP address) to these analytics providers, and other service providers who use the information to help us figure out how you and others use our online services.

ONLINE TRACKING AND INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING

We and the service providers we use to advertise to you may collect information about your activities on Square. We use this information to advertise to you and to tailor our products and services to your interests. You may see certain ads on other websites because we use third-party services to advertise our services to you. We use these services to target our ads to you and others based on your demographics, interests and context. These third-party ad services track your online activities over time and across multiple websites by collecting your information through automated technologies, including third-party cookies, web server logs and web beacons. The ad services use this information to show you Dock ads that may be tailored to your individual interests. The information our ad services may collect on our behalf includes data about your visits to websites that serve Dock ads, such as the pages or ads you view and the actions you take on those websites. This data collection takes place both on our online services, and on third-party websites that serve our ads to you. This process also helps us figure out if our ads to you are effective.

Certain web browsers allow you to instruct your browser to respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals to website you visit, informing those sites that you do not want your online activities to be tracked. At this time, our websites are not designed to respond to DNT signals or similar mechanisms from browsers.

6.   HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION

We generally keep your information as long as reasonably necessary to provide you the Services or to comply with applicable law. However, even after you deactivate your account, we can retain copies of information about you and any transactions or Services in which you may have participated for a period of time that is consistent with applicable law, applicable statute of limitations or as we believe is reasonably necessary to comply with applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, to detect or prevent fraud, to collect fees owed, to resolve disputes, to address problems with our Services, to assist with investigations, to enforce our Terms of Service or other applicable agreements or policies, or to take any other actions consistent with applicable law.

7.   YOUR CHOICES

Dock as a Service Provider

Dock is a Service Provider to Account Holders, who are individuals or organizations who use the Dock platform to create a Private Shared Space for themselves and their Clients.  Dock processes Personal Information in this context only according to Account Holders’ instructions (as set out in the Terms of Service). If Clients have questions about Personal Information they have entered into the platform or want to exercise any of their rights regarding their Personal Information, we are required to redirect the inquiry back to that Account Holder. Dock is not responsible for the privacy or security practices of Account Holders, which may differ from those set out in this Privacy Policy.

Account Holders can access, change, or correct information that you have provided by logging into your Dock account at any time. Website visitors can make a request to us using the contact details below. We will need to verify your identity before granting access or otherwise changing or correcting your information.

If you wish to deactivate your account, Account Holders can do so by logging into your Dock account or by emailing us using the contact details provided below.

In order to provide certain Services, we may request access to location information, including precise geolocation information collected from your device.

If you decide to opt out, we may still send you non-promotional communications, such as digital receipts and messages about your account or our ongoing business relations.

ONLINE BEHAVIORAL OR INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING

Third-Party Online Behavioral or Interest-Based Advertising Services on Websites (including Mobile Websites)

Some of the advertising platforms that we use to collect information from or about you in order to provide more relevant advertising to you on websites participate in the DAA Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. This program offers a centralized location where users can make choices about the use of their information for online behavioral advertising. To make choices about the use of your information for online behavioral advertising on websites, please visit the Digital Advertising Alliance Webchoices tool. If you opt out of online behavioral advertising using this method, this opt-out will only apply to the specific browser or device from which you opt out.

Some of the advertisers, advertising technology companies, and service providers that perform advertising-related services for us may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI), a cooperative of online marketing companies that offers a centralized tool for opting out of interest-based advertising delivered to each of its member companies. If you would like to opt out of the NAI’s members’ use of information from or about you on websites, please visit the NAI’s opt-out of interest-based advertising page. If you opt out of interest-based advertising using this method, this opt-out will only apply to the specific browser or device from which you opt out.

Third-Party Online Behavioral or Interest-Based Advertising Services Within Mobile Applications

Some of the advertising platforms that we use to collect information from or about you in order to provide our advertising to you within mobile applications participate in the DAA Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. This program offers a mobile application called the “AppChoices,” which provides a centralized location where you can make choices about the use of your information for online behavioral advertising within the mobile environment. The AppChoices application can be downloaded from your mobile device at www.aboutads.info/appchoices or from your device’s app store. If you opt out of online behavioral advertising using this method, this opt-out will only apply to the specific browser or device from which you opt out.

On your mobile device, you may also go to your device settings and select “Limit Ad Tracking” (for iOS devices), or “Opt out of Interest-Based Ads” (for Android devices), which will allow you to limit our use of information collected from or about your mobile device (such as precise location data) for the purposes of serving online behavioral advertising to you.
