We take pride in our community. You’ve also trusted us with a big responsibility, so we’re committed to upholding a high standard when it comes to our privacy practices. It’s important to us that you’re comfortable on PikUp, so we provide options for you to control how much information you share and your communication preferences. We use secure technologies and follow best practices.
If you have any questions about this policy please contact us through the site, or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Use of personal details (purpose of register)
Personal details are collected to make communication and use of service possible. Details can be used for communication between service providers and users and also for direct communication between users. Some personal details are visible on the profile page of the user, but those details are voluntary (except name).
The handling of personal details is not outsourced, but the register data is stored on a server that is rented from a third party company.
Information content of the register
The following information may be stored in the register:
Personal details: Name, email address, phone number, street address
Account details: username, password (stored in encrypted format)
The description text that the user may write about him/herself
The offers and requests the user has posted to the service
The given and received feedback and badges
Statistical data about service usage, e.g. number times the user has logged in
Regular sources of information
Personal details are given by the user on registration to the service or when using it later.
PikUp may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. PikUp may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, PikUp does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
PikUp discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on PikUp’s behalf or to provide services available at PikUp’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Pikup’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
PikUp will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, PikUp discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a court order or other governmental request, or when PikUp believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of PikUp, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the PikUp website and have supplied your email address, PikUp may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with PikUp and our products. We expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. PikUp takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
