We’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you’re not familiar with terms like cookies, IP addresses, pixel tags and browsers, then read about these key terms first. Your privacy matters to CommonsOS so whether you are new to CommonsOS or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices – and if you have any questions contact us.
Information we collect
We collect information in the following ways:
Information we collect when you are signed in to CommonsOS, in addition to information we obtain about you from partners, may be associated with your CommonsOS Account. When information is associated with your CommonsOS Account, we treat it as personal information. For more information about how you can access, manage or delete information that is associated with your CommonsOS Account, visit the Transparency and choice section of this policy.
How we use information we collect
We may use the name you provide for your CommonsOS Profile across all of the services we offer that require a CommonsOS Account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your CommonsOS Account so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible CommonsOS Profile information, such as your name and photo.
If you have a CommonsOS Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on CommonsOS or on third-party applications connected to your CommonsOS Account in our services, including displaying in ads and other commercial contexts. We will respect the choices you make to limit sharing or visibility settings in your CommonsOS Account.
When you contact CommonsOS, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected from cookies and other technologiesto improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services.
Our automated systems analyze your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection.
We may combine personal information from one service with information, including personal information, from other CommonsOS services – for example to make it easier to share things with people you know. We will not combine DoubleClick cookie information with personally identifiable information unless we have your opt-in consent.
CommonsOS processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live
Transparency and choice
You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.
Information you share
Accessing and updating your personal information
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
Information we share
We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.
