Privacy Policy

Effective July 2017

Introduction

Thank you for signing up! We’re excited for you to join GeekFold! For definitions of any terms included here, please see our Terms of Service.

By visiting GeekFold’s website, signing up for our newsletter, or using any of our Services, you agree to this Privacy Policy. Here we’ll explain what information we collect and how we’ll use it. Our users’ privacy is very important to us. We would never sell your information and we would not disclose it to others without it being absolutely necessary.

 

Collected Information

We collect personal information such as your email address, first and last name, and potentially other information needed to provide you with the Service and additional Services such as contests, sweepstakes, and more. This information is collected online and sometimes in person at events.

 

Cookies

When you visit our website, which is hosted on Squarespace, cookies may be collected. Cookies are small files stored on your computer when you visit a website that keep records about your activity.

 

How Information will be used

The information we collect from you will be used to provide and improve the Service such as the weekly newsletter and others. It may be used for customized content or to determine marketing approaches.

 

Controlling your information

You can modify or delete your information by clicking the link provided in the emails of the Service. You can also opt-out of the Service at any time using the link provided in the emails of the Service or emailing us at info@geekfold.com.

 

Third-party services and links

In order to provide the Service, we utilize an email marketing company MailChimp and will need to send your information to them for use and processing in order to provide the Service. We may potentially use other third-party Services including but not limited to analytics or others to help us provide you with the best Service and improve. These providers have their own Privacy Policy and Terms of Service which you can read on their websites. The information will only be transferred to them in order to provide and improve the Service.

The newsletter and website contain links that will direct you to other websites that are not owned or run by us. These sites have their own Privacy Policies, Terms of Service agreements, and Cookie Policies. We are not responsible for what happens once you leave our website or other Services and visit these third-party sites.  

When following, liking, or communicating with us through social media or by commenting on the blog, you acknowledge that you understand your personal information, such as username, can as a result become public information.

Your personal information may be transferred to another party if that party purchases GeekFold so that we can seamlessly continue to provide you with the Service.

 

Law

If compelled to do so by law, we may need to disclose your personal information.

 

Security

We aim to use the best standards of security possible to protect your information and prevent any loss or misuse. Your information will be kept confidential. That being said, no method is 100% secure all of the time. We cannot ensure the security of the information you provide us. We will notify you if any breach of our security occurs.

 

International

Your information may be transferred and stored outside of your state or country. If you are outside the U.S., your information will be stored and transferred there to be processed. The laws of the U.S. may not be equivalent to the laws of your country.

 

Children under 13

We do not knowingly collect information from children under 13 and if we become aware a user has used our Services who is under 13, we will remove their information and try to notify their parents. If you become aware of this, please notify us at info@geekfold.com.

 

Changes

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time. If there are any changes made to this Privacy Policy, you will be notified. They will take effect as soon as they are posted here.
