Privacy Policy

Last updated: May 22nd 2018 – GDPR clarifications

EMULSIVE respects the right to privacy of its readers and is committed to protecting the information collected through this website and associated platforms – known as “EMULSIVE” from here on in.

This privacy policy explains how EMULSIVE collects, stores, and uses the information you provide when you access, engage with, or log-in to the website and any other platforms and services operated and managed directly by EMULSIVE. Read this page for specific Terms of Use you also accept when you use EMULSIVE.

As much as possible, this privacy policy has been written in plain English and technical jargon/terminology has been kept to a minimum.

First, here’s something so important it needs to be written in ALL CAPS:

 


BY USING, REGISTERING OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING ANY SERVICES PROVIDED BY EMULSIVE, YOU AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, THE ASSOCIATED TERMS OF USE AND COMMUNITY GUIDELINES.

THIS MEANS YOU PROVIDE EXPLICIT AND INFORMED CONSENT TO A CONTRACT WHICH INCLUDES THE COLLECTION, USE AND PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA AS DESCRIBED BELOW.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT VISIT, USE, REGISTER TO OR OTHERWISE ACCESS ANY SERVICES PROVIDED BY EMULSIVE.


 

Back to sentence case.

The following sections discuss what kind of data EMULSIVE collects, how it’s used and what you can do to protect the information you share online.

 

 

Tracking technologies

Like the vast majority of websites today, EMULSIVE and partners used to deliver associated services such as newsletters, advertising, survey forms, etc., use cookies and/or similar technologies to analyze trends, track users’ use of the website, administer the website, and gather basic demographic information about its readership

The kind of usage data that are typically tracked goes along the lines of:

“Today, X number of people came to the website and viewed Y number of pages. The average time spent reading an article was Z minutes. And most of the people who read article A came from country B using a tablet device”

You can control the use of cookies and other website analytics tools in your web browser. Aside from usage information, EMULSIVE also gathers certain technical information automatically in its server logs. This data may be used to block spam bots and other agents attempting to compromise the security of the EMULSIVE platform.

This data may include your IP (Internet Protocol) address, web browser type, ISP (Internet Service Provider), the web pages you came from, operating system, date/time of your visit, and/or click data. As with the usage information, this data is anonymised at the source and used to analyze trends and administer the website.

 

 

Collection and use of personal information

Depending on what you do when you visit or use EMULSIVE, the platforms used to deliver the service may ask to collect your name, email address and social media details – but only with your explicit consent.

For example:

  • …when you sign up for a newsletter: your name, email address and subscription preference will be requested
  • …when you leave a comment on the website, you will have the option to use one of your social media accounts, or your email address to leave that comment.

Some article pages also contain links to forms or embedded versions of those forms (currently provided by Google). These forms are used by EMULSIVE to capture votes on specific community events, submit data and submit articles. You have full control over what information you do and do not submit using these forms and their usage and privacy statements are available over at a dedicated hub at Google.

Authors and contributors to this website have dedicated user accounts, which contain their full name, email address and other social network links. This information is shared on each author profile page and at the foot of articles attributed to them.

 

 

Sharing your information

EMULSIVE may share your information with third parties in order to provide additional services to readers.

These companies are authorised to only use the information you provide as necessary to provide these services to us. A great example of this is email newsletters and EMULSIVE Secret Santa, which are both delivered through a third party.

 

 

Personal information: access, retention and choice

If you want to know what (if any) information about you is stored by EMULSIVE, just use the form at the foot of this page to receive a complete breakdown.

You can sign-up to receive newsletters and other email communications from EMULSIVE. If you would like to discontinue receiving these communications, you may update your email preferences by using the “UNSUBSCRIBE” link found in the emails (it’s at the bottom in the footer).

We use MailChimp as our marketing automation platform. By subscribing to EMULSIVE newsletters, you acknowledge that the information you provide will be transferred to MailChimp for processing in accordance with their Privacy Policy and Terms.

 

 

Advertising

EMULSIVE shows advertising to all website readers unless they have opted-in to an ad-free patronage (it’s inexpensive, and every dollar supports building a better platform for you).

Ads are provided by a third-party partner managed by Google, who may use cookies or similar technologies to provide you with advertising based on your browsing activities and interests.

If you wish to opt out of this “interest-based advertising” click here to find out more. You should be aware that other websites and social media platforms have their own “interest-based” advertising systems, so in this case, EMULSIVE can only offer you help for one part of a wider puzzle.

 

 

Legal compliance

In certain situations, EMULSIVE may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, which could include a requirement to meet national/international security or law enforcement requirements.

 

 

Security

The security of your personal information is super important. EMULSIVE follows generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once it is received.

If you have any questions about the security of your personal information, email policies@emulsive.org.

 

 

Reader submissions

Terms of use

Changes to this policy

This policy will be updated periodically to reflect the way your information is collected and handled, or when new services/partners are used who make use of it. Updates will be sent out to readers who have a newsletter subscription, and they will also be reflected on this page.
