Current policy published: May 15, 2015.
Information Collected or Received
GOLPERA will not disclose your name, email address or other personal information to third parties without your explicit consent, except as specified in this policy.
As an GOLPERA member you are required to provide a valid email address at registration and choose a username or alias that may represent your identity on GOLPERA.
Depending on which services you choose to use, GOLPERA may require additional information, such as a shop name, billing and payment information (including billing address, telephone number, credit card information), a telephone number, and/or a physical postal address. Credit card information on an account may be stored and used for both billing and payment purposes. GOLPERA may contact individual shop owners to confidentially request more information about their shops or items listed on the Site, to ensure compliance with our rules. Certain products or services on GOLPERA may require you to complete an application; any information you submit through the application processes will not be displayed publicly and will only be used internally by GOLPERA, unless otherwise specified.
You may optionally choose to provide your full name and other personal information (such as birthday, gender, location) to be publicly displayed in connection with your account and activity.
Your username, GOLPERA ID or alias is publicly displayed and connected to your GOLPERA activity. Other people may see your date joined, reviews, ratings, profile information, items listed for sale, shop pages, sold item listings, and comments in community spaces.
GOLPERA may automatically receive and record some information from your browser or your mobile device when you visit the Site, such as your IP address or unique device identifier, cookies and data about which pages you visit on the Site. This information helps us analyze and understand how the Site works for members and visitors, and provide a more personalized experience for members and visitors.
Some members or visitors may connect to or register an GOLPERA account using an external third-party application, such as Facebook. GOLPERA may receive some data from those connected third-party applications. Connecting your GOLPERA account to third-party applications or services is optional, and when you connect your account to an external app, you will be given the opportunity to grant permission.
GOLPERA may receive or collect information (for example: an email address) about a person who is not yet a registered GOLPERA member (a “non-member”) in connection with certain GOLPERA features, including but not limited to: a non-member subscribing to an GOLPERA newsletter, a member inviting a non-member to visit the Site, a non-member engaging in a transaction. Non-member information is used only for the purpose it was originally submitted to GOLPERA. A non-member can contact GOLPERA Support if they do not want GOLPERA to retain their information.
GOLPERA uses the information described in this policy to provide and improve our services and products, for billing and payments, for identification and authentication, for targeted online marketing, to contact members or interested parties, and for general research and aggregate reporting.
Choice & Control
We know members of our community value having control over their own information, and therefore GOLPERA gives you the choice of providing, editing or removing certain information, as well as choice over how we contact you.
You may change or correct your GOLPERA account information (except your username) on the Site. You may also remove certain optional information on the Site that you no longer wish to be publicly visible, such as your full name.
For various reasons, GOLPERA may contact you about our services or your activity.
If you no longer wish to use GOLPERA’s services or receive service-related messages, then you may close your account.
Messages from GOLPERA
On occasion, GOLPERA will contact you. Primarily, messages are delivered by email or by push notifications, and every account is required to keep a valid email address on file to receive messages. In some situations, GOLPERA may contact you by telephone, SMS message or physical mail in order to provide you with customer support or to provide you with information about products and features. You may update your contact preferences in your account settings.
Some messages from GOLPERA are service-related and required for members. Examples of service-related messages include, but are not limited to: a welcome/confirmation email when you register your account, notification of an order, or correspondence with GOLPERA’s support team. These messages are not promotional in nature. You may not opt-out of receiving service-related messages from GOLPERA, unless you close your account.
As a member, GOLPERA may also send you messages related to certain features or your activity on the Site. GOLPERA may also send you news or updates about changes to our Site or services. By default, members will receive these messages via email or push notifications through the Apps, but you may choose to opt-out of getting certain messages through the settings on your GOLPERA account.
GOLPERA offers optional email newsletters. When you register for an account, or choose to subscribe, you may receive newsletters from us. Newsletters are available to both members and non-members. Members may subscribe or unsubscribe from optional newsletters under your account settings or by following the instructions contained in the newsletter emails. Non-members may subscribe by providing an email address, which will only be used by GOLPERA for these newsletters. Non-members may unsubscribe from newsletters by following the instructions contained in the newsletter emails.
GOLPERA is both a marketplace and a community. We offer several features that allow members to connect and communicate in public or semi-public spaces. Please use common sense and good judgment when posting in these community spaces or sharing your personal information with others on GOLPERA. Be aware that any personal information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by others, or could be used to send you unsolicited messages. GOLPERA generally does not remove content from community spaces, and your posts may remain public after your account is closed. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to post in community spaces on GOLPERA.
Information Sharing & Disclosure
We want to respect your privacy. GOLPERA will not disclose your name, email address or other personal information to third parties without your explicit consent, except as specified in this policy.
GOLPERA limits access to your personal information to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs.
GOLPERA is affiliated with a variety of businesses and works closely with them. These businesses may offer promotions or sell items or services to you through GOLPERA’s services. GOLPERA may also provide services or sell products jointly with affiliated businesses. Due to the nature of our business model, when an affiliated business is associated with your transaction, we may share information that is related to such transaction with that affiliated business. GOLPERA may share aggregated demographic information with business partners.
In some cases, GOLPERA may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions (such as a sale, merger, liquidation, receivership or transfer of all or substantially all of GOLPERA’s assets), member information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. In the event that GOLPERA transfers information about you, GOLPERA will notify you by email or by putting a prominent notice on the Site.
We can only speak for ourselves; this policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that GOLPERA does not own or control, or individuals that GOLPERA does not employ or manage. If you provide your information to others on GOLPERA or throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to the use or disclosure of the information you provide to them. GOLPERA does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. GOLPERA is not responsible for the privacy or security practices of other websites on the Internet, even those linked to or from the GOLPERA Site. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
The security of your personal information is important to us. Your GOLPERA account information is protected by a password. It is important that you protect against unauthorized access of your account and information by choosing your password carefully, and keeping your password and computer secure by signing out after using our services.
GOLPERA will retain your information only for as long as is necessary or your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you no longer want GOLPERA to use your information to provide you services, you may close your account. GOLPERA will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
You may inform us of any changes or requests in regards to your personal data, and in accordance with our obligations under local data protection law, we may update or delete your personal data accordingly.
