The Daisie community is a melting pot of creative talent. The platform is meant for sharing, learning, discovering and collaborating on original and creative content. To ensure that this process takes place in a safe and lawful environment, we wish to be transparent with the data we may collect, how we may use it and for what reason. We also wish to empower you to make the best decisions about the information you may share with us, so that Daisie stays a trustworthy and fun place for creators. We make sure to only use necessary information from you in order to run and improve our service. Please note that in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation, Daisie is a data controller (the company is responsible for and controls the processing of your personal data).
PUBLIC INFORMATION ON DAISIE
All account activity is public on Daisie. You must create an account to use Daisie, after which all of the application (“app”) functionalities will become available, such as searching and viewing Daisie Users.
When you register for a Daisie account, we will ask for certain information from you. We request your full name, email address, username, year of birth and location (optional). This enables us to verify that you are a human, and therefore a welcome addition to Daisie.
Your displayed name and username are always public, and you can use either your real name or a pseudonym. You may include your job title, though please remember that doing so will publish it as a public information. Your email address, password and year of birth are private and only required for administrative purposes. You can create and manage multiple Daisie accounts; though we recommend starting with just one to enable your chain to grow more naturally.
You may choose to display a location in your profile and/or your posts. If you do, this information will be public.
All the Content you post is public to all Daisie Users. There is no privacy control on posts. In addition, information about your posts, projects and activity (such as your chain, collaborators, bumps and comments) are public on Daisie. Information about you that is posted by other people who use Daisie is also public (for instance when you are named as a collaborator on another Users project or are part of their chain).
Please remember that you are responsible for posts, projects and any Content you display on Daisie as well as other information you provide through our services, and you should think carefully about what you make public, especially if it is sensitive information.
As a Daisie User, you have the ability to block other Users, which will stop them from sending you messages, appearing in your timeline and discovering you through search.
If you update your public information on Daisie, by deleting Content or deactivating your account, we will reflect the change on Daisie. Please remember that any User Content that you make public is searchable by other Users. If you remove information that you posted to the platform, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages and other Users might have copied or saved that information, which is beyond our control.
WHAT KIND OF INFORMATION DAISIE COLLECTS FROM YOU
The information Daisie collects, and how that information is used, depends on how you use our services.

By choosing to provide this information, you consent to our processing of that information.

In addition, while you use the Service, you have the choice to turn your device location on or off, by using the device settings app and indicate your location as you upload some Content.

Other companies acting such as IT sub-processors are required to respect the security of your personal data and to treat them in accordance with the law. We try to minimise transfer of your personal data outside the EEA but some of our external third parties are based outside the EEA, so their processing of your personal data may involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.

CONTROL OF YOUR COMMUNICATIONS
We use the information we collect or receive to communicate directly with you by different means.
COMMUNICATIONS WITH DAISIE
• SERVICE COMMUNICATIONS:We may need to provide you with certain communications, such as service announcements and administrative messages. These are made to inform you on the activity of your account and the service such as scheduled downtime, data breach, forgot password, changes to features of the service. These communications are considered part of the Daisie services and your account, and you may not be able to opt-out from receiving them. Thus, by providing Daisie your email address, you consent to Daisie using your email address to send you service-related notices including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. If you don’t agree to such communications sent to you, you can disable your account, as you may not opt out of Service-related emails.
• NOTIFICATION COMMUNICATIONS:We will send notification emails based on the activity of your account, for example when another User follows you, or when you receive a private message. You may opt out of these communications from the Settings section of the app.
• MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS:We may also send you communications to offer you the best service and keep you updated. Therefore we may use your email address to send you other messages, such as newsletters, promotions or special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out by following the “Unsubscribe” link in the email messages. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements or offers. Please note that we are not selling or sharing your email address with a third party for marketing purposes.
COMMUNICATIONS WITH DAISIE USERS
DIRECT MESSAGES:You can use Direct Messages to have non-public conversations between Users on Daisie. Any User can send you a direct message. These will get filtered in two distinct boxes, one for your Users from your chain (your direct connections) and one for other Users of Daisie. We share the Content of your Direct Messages with the people you have sent them to; we do not use them to serve you ads.
In your direct messages, if you interact with some Content ordinarily displayed on Daisie, for instance by “bumping some Content”, such an interaction is public. When you use features like Direct Messages to communicate, remember that the recipients of your messages will have their own copy of your communications on Daisie, which they may duplicate, store, or re-share.
When you communicate with others by sending or receiving Direct Messages, we will store information about whom you have communicated with and when, as well as the Content of those communications to better understand the use of Daisie services, to protect the safety and integrity of our platform. We will also store and process your communications and information related to review of reported issues.
MANAGING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH DAISIE
We provide you with the following rights in respect of the personal information we hold about you and according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
ACCESS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION:You have the right to obtain access to your personal data. Therefore you may view, modify and/or delete the personal information you enter. To request access please email us at email@example.com. We will provide the information free of charge and within one month, except in the event that the request is unfounded, excessive or repetitive, in which case we reserve the right to charge a proportionate administration fee or refuse.
UPDATE OR RECTIFY YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION:You may at any time update or correct any information that you think is inaccurate or incomplete about you on Daisie. However, we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
RIGHT TO PORTABILITY:The right to portability allows you to move, copy or transfer the personal data you have shared through the Service. If you request it, we will provide to you your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
RIGHT TO RESTRICTION:You can restrict the processing undertaken by us on your personal data in certain circumstances, such as where you contest the accuracy of some of your personal data, for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy of that personal data.
RIGHT TO OBJECT:You have a right to object to processing based on legitimate interests and when there is something about your particular situation, which makes you want to object to processing on this ground, as you feel it impacts your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information, which override your rights and freedoms.
• Unsubscribe from marketing communication:You can stop receiving promotional email communications from us by clicking on the “unsubscribe link” provided in such communications. We make every effort to promptly process all unsubscribe requests. However, as noted above, you may not opt out of Service-related communications (for instance account verification, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices) unless you delete your account on Daisie.
• Opting out from cookies:The only way to completely opt out of the collection of any information through cookies or other tracking technology is to actively manage the settings on your browser or device. Please refer to your device or browser’s technical information for instructions on how to delete and disable cookies, and other tracking/recording tools. Depending on your type of device, it may not be possible to delete or disable tracking mechanisms on it.
Note that disabling cookies and/or other tracking tools prevents Daisie or its partners from tracking your browser’s activities in relation to the Service. However, doing so may disable many of the features available through the Service. If you have any questions about opting out of the collection of cookies and other tracking/recording tools, you can contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RIGHT TO WITHDRAW CONSENT:At any time you may withdraw your consent where you may have given it. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent and we have no alternative legal reason to process your personal data, this withdrawal will be effective and might affect your ability to use our Service. This withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
ERASE YOUR INFORMATION:You have the right to obtain the erasure of your personal data, without undue delay and in certain circumstances, such as where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or processed. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data, where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see above Paragraph 6.), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with applicable law. However, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Please remember that requesting a deletion is total and irreversible, unlike a request to unsubscribe from specific emails, such as marketing. This means that Daisie will lose record of you having ever been on our systems, including any previous instruction to opt out of specific email type you may have given us. As a result, if you happen to join again our systems by voluntarily providing us your personal information (like your email), you will appear to us as a new data subject.
If you wish to exercise one of these rights, please contact us at email@example.com by using your email address you subscribed with or by providing your identity. You can find further information about how to contact your local data protection authority if you are located in Europe here.
