Collection of User Information
We do not track our users across third party websites and thus do not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals. However, some third party websites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, certain website browsers may allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties know you do not want to be tracked.
Information on Children. SSI does not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13. The Service is intended for use by persons to access information related to public safety and security. If SSI learns that it has collected Personally Identifiable Information from a child under the age of 13, SSI will delete that information from its systems where reasonably possible. SSI encourages parents and guardians to monitor children’s online device usage. Parental control protections, such as mobile device hardware, software or filtering services, are commercially available to limit the access to material that is harmful to minors.
At times, we may share User Information with third parties for certain purposes. While we will seek to require those third parties to follow appropriate privacy policies and security measures, we do not bear responsibility for any actions or policies of third parties. The following outlines the ways in which User Information may be shared with others:
While there is no such thing as “perfect security,” SSI takes commercially reasonable precautions to protect User Information. Our security policies are reviewed periodically and revised as required. It is important to remember, however, that whatever you transmit or disclose online can be collected and used by others or unlawfully intercepted by third parties. No data transmission over the Internet can be 100% secure.
This Section 9 applies to Publicly Available Social Media Information that you may access as part of the Service.
SSI has no intention, nor the capability, to gather private information of social media authors that is not publicly available from the social media services they use. Generally, the Service enables SSI’s clients to aggregate and assess threats shared publicly on social media and blog streams for potential threats in the areas of security, public safety, harm, wellness or acts of violence. These results will be shared with SSI’s clients to allow those clients to conduct assessments of potential harm, self-harm and acts of violence, and to determine what further steps should be taken, if any, to address such concerns. SSI also may share these results in response to a valid law enforcement request or legal process, to protect SSI’s rights and property or those of third parties, or as otherwise permitted or required by law.
Social media data feeds are provided to SSI by social media services and third-party data aggregators. These third-party data aggregators obtain their feeds from the online services of social media companies. The algorithms SSI applies to Publicly Available Social Media Information do not attempt to, and indeed cannot, discern any Personally Identifiable Information that is not already included in the data feeds SSI receives from social media services and third-party data aggregators.
You acknowledge and agree that Social Sentinel processes any Personal Data in Social Sentinel’s capacity as data processor, and that you remain at all times the data controller of such processing. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, in Your capacity as data controller, it is Your exclusive responsibility to obtain all necessary consents to such processing, to convey the information notices as required by applicable law, to make any necessary filings with the appropriate data protection authorities, to enforce and comply with any request to access and/or rectify and/or delete any such Personal Data.
