Further information about Personal Data

Use of our Service by the clients

In order to use our Service, the clients have to disclose to their users the use of the Service and provide them a privacy policy in compliance with the applicable law that should be conspicuously posted on their website/mobile application.
We do provide for an opt-out facility, the link of which must be available on such privacy notice.

What our Service does and how Authors can opt-out

Our Service consists of a sophisticated tool that our clients can use to analyze their actual or potential audience through social media (such as Twitter, Facebook etc.) content, or content published on our clients’ websites and/or mobile applications.

In order to analyze social media content, we enter into an agreement with the relevant social network provider which makes available, usually via API, the technical means that we need in order to make our Service happen and perform our analyses.

The information we gather are published or, in any case, made publicly available by the social network users or our client’s users (the “Authors”).

If you are an Author on social media, please be aware of the fact that if we are able to access your information, this means that you have previously given permission to the social network (who acts as data controller) and you have consented to such processing.

You may deny this consent at any time by changing your privacy setting on the social network platform.

What type of information do we collect about Authors?

We do collect the information that our clients share with us. To learn more about this, we invite you to read their privacy policy, and in particular the section dedicated to our Service.

As for the social media, the information collected largely depends on the information made available by the social network provider, which in turn depends on the policy they have in place.

In any case, if any of the following information is shared or otherwise made available, we may have access to

  • your name, surname, screen name or username, or other online identifier of yours;
  • any content that you have published under your name/username and the like, such as, including but not limited to, comments, expressions, opinions, posts, tweets, etc.;
  • your profile picture or other images, such as avatars, or videos that you post or interact with;
  • your job title or profession;
  • your interests;
  • your location;
  • your gender/marital status; and
  • any other information you decide to make publicly available.

Authors must also be aware that further information can be derived from the information above and, in general, from any information we are provided with.

For example, if you share your location and we know that you live in the USA, we may reasonably infer that you can speak English, if you like a product or service we may infer that you may want to see more of the same in your ads etc.

Sometimes we may also infer very sensitive information about you, which means that, despite the fact that we do not, in principle, process this type of information, they can be nonetheless inferred by simply combining what we we already know about you.
For example, if you share your marital status and name of your spouse, we may infer your sexual orientation, if you share information about your profession we may infer what your yearly income is likely to be, if you share your picture we can infer your gender, and so on.

The inferences are based on algorithms that analyse the data that you have posted. In other words, we do not make any decisions about you based on the data that we process about you (either inferred or not). Our Service consists of making the analyses based on the data provided available to our clients. It is up to our clients to decide what (if anything) to do with the data and any inferences thereof.

What is our position with respect to the processing of Authors' Data?

We are not the data controller of the above information and process them as data processor according to the terms and conditions set forth in the agreement that we entered into with the controllers (i.e. on one side our client, on the other side the social network provider).

This means that we are bound to both the terms and conditions of the social network providers, entered into whenever we use their API or other technical tools, and by the data processing agreement that we sign with our clients.

Whenever we do create a report or a pitch or any kind of document, brochure, newsletter to promote the Service, we never use information that can be used, even if combined with any other information, to identify, either directly or indirectly, individuals.

This means that the statistics and analyses we publish shall never contain personal data in such a way that makes them relevant for, or fall within the scope of, the European data protection law.

Are Author's data securely processed?

Yes, they are. We have in place a very strict policy in this regard that meets the principles of privacy by design and privacy by default and ensure that your data are processed in such a manner that minimize the risks of, including but not limited to, loss, erasure, disclosure, dissemination of your data.

Despite the above, please be aware that we not responsible for the way our clients use the Service.

According to what legal basis do we process Authors' Data?

We do process Authors’ data to comply with our contractual obligation to provide the Service to our clients.

We may process such data also in ways related to, but ancillary, to the Service that we offer. For example, we may use the data to comply with our legal obligations or enforce our rights, including the legal obligations or enforcement of rights of third parties.

Please be aware that, since we act as data processor, meaning that we process your data on behalf of a controller, the latter must have a legal basis to process your data to begin with.

As stated above, the social network provider must be given your consent to utilize your personal information and permit third parties like us to utilize your information in the way we do.

Our clients have, in principle, the legitimate interest to learn more about their customers, how their brand is perceived, what their customers like about them and what they don’t, where their competitors position themselves, and the like.

In this respect, we are simply technical providers that empower them and their business by providing them with the means to do so.

Please note that other legal basis of the processing may be found in the client’s privacy policy which we strongly encourage you to read first.

How long shall the above information be retained?

As long as it takes for us to provide the Service to our clients.

We don’t keep the data any longer and don’t process them for other purposes other than providing the Service to our clients.

In some cases, the law may provide for a longer retention period or we may retain your data for a longer period because we need to defend our rights and prerogatives before a Court (e.g. in case of criminal offense or in case any illicit conduct has been perpetrated against us).

However, if none of the above occurs, upon delivery of the analysis requested, your data is immediately deleted.

How do I opt-out from your Service?

Simply contact the Owner at the following email address: optout@kpi6.com
