[We also may aggregate or de-identify personal information by removing any details that identify you personally. Aggregated or de-identified information will not be subject to this Policy.]

With Whom We Share Personal Information

We may disclose personal information:

  • To your coworking space to facilitate the services offered.
  • To other users of your coworking space, such as your directory information.
  • To our contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our organization and the Services.
  • To government agencies or others as necessary to comply with any court order, law, or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request, and consistent with other purposes authorized by law.
  • To other organizations, such as a buyer or other successor in interest in the event of an actual or potential merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale, exchange, or transfer of some or all of our assets, including as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding.

Additional Information for Residents of the EEA, Switzerland, and the UK

This section applies only to personal information we receive from the European Economic Area (“EEA”), Switzerland, and the United Kingdom (“UK”). To the extent we act as a “controller”, consumers located in these regions may have the right to request access to, correction of, erasure of, or the transfer of your personal information. Consumers located in these regions may also have the right to request to make choices about disclosures of their personal information, including the right to object to or restrict the processing of such information. You may exercise these rights, if applicable, by contacting us in the “Contacting Us” section of this Policy. You may also have the right to lodge a complaint with an EEA, Swiss, or UK supervisory authority, as applicable.

We may not be able to accommodate all requests, such as when we only act as a “processor” with respect to personal information we collect or receive on behalf of a coworking space in connection with the services we provide or when we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. When we collect information under the direction of, and receive information from, the coworking space, we may have no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal information we process under these circumstances. If you are a user of a coworking space located in the EEA, Switzerland, or the UK, and would like to make an inquiry or complaint, please contact your coworking space directly.

International Data Transfers

We may transfer personal information to the United States or other countries that may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you reside. Some of these jurisdictions may not have been deemed adequate by the European Commission or other relevant authorities to provide a comparable level of protection to that of the EEA, Switzerland, or the UK. When we transfer personal information subject to the data protection laws of these regions, we will rely on a legal framework that provides appropriate safeguards, such as the standard contractual clauses, or another appropriate framework.

Your Choices

We respect your privacy and offer choices regarding our collection and use of your personal information:

  • You may choose not to provide the personal information we request. However, not providing information we request may restrict your ability to use certain features of the Services. For example, we will not be able to provide users of the coworking space with most of the features available through our Services if you do not register as a member.
  • You may opt out of location services through our mobile app and mobile website by changing your device settings to prohibit location tracking, or blocking our app from collecting your location data.
  • You may opt out of push notifications using your device settings.
  • You may opt out of emails and text messages using the opt-out mechanism provided with those messages.
  • You may edit and control the visibility of your profile. You can choose to limit the information you include in your profile. If you need assistance, please contact us at support@coworksapp.com.
  • You may be able to restrict the collection of personal information or functionality through your device’s operating system or by disabling cookies, but doing so may prevent you from using the functionality of the Services. Some Internet browsers have a “do-not-track” feature that let you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. At this time the Services do not respond to browser “do not track” signals. We may allow third parties to use the Services to collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites, applications, and other online products or services.

Security

We maintain safeguards intended to protect the personal information collected through the Services. The security of your personal information also depends on you. If you have created an account, please safeguard and do not share your access credentials and make sure your devices and software are up-to-date to ensure the latest security measures are installed.

We use payment card processors during order processing. Your payment data is delivered directly from the browser to the payment card processors, who handle your payment card data subject to industry standards regarding security.

Changes to this Policy

We may update this Policy to reflect changes in our privacy practices at any time and without prior notice to you. When we do so, we will update the Effective Date of the Policy, above. We encourage you to periodically review this Policy for the latest information on our privacy practices.
