TDA’s mission is to provide a transparent and open way for organizations and digital agencies to meet. Central to this mission is our commitment to be transparent about the data we collect about you, how it is used, and with whom it is shared.
Effective from Dec 7, 2021
This policy covers only the personal data of natural persons and it does not apply to any other data relating to corporate clients, suppliers or business partners, or to public authorities, except where and if the applicable law determines otherwise.
Our registered users (“Members”) share information about their professional businesses and services, engage with other Members, exchange knowledge and professional insights, post and view relevant content and find business opportunities. Content and data on some of our Services can be viewed by non-members (“Visitors”).
If you are an EU-, EEA- or UK-based Visitor or Member you are entitled to specific privacy rights as detailed below.
You are entering into the User Agreement with TDA Corporation and TDA Croatia.
To create an account you need to provide data including your business name, contact email address, web address, and password. If you use the Service to make or receive payments, we will also collect certain payment information, such as credit card or other financial account information, and the billing address. We may collect personal information, such as your date of birth or taxpayer identification number to validate your identity or as may be required by law, such as to complete tax filings. We may request documents to verify this information, such as a copy of your government-issued identification or photo or a billing statement.
When you register as a User, we ask you to provide certain personal information including admin name, and other important non-personal information. We will collect that information via a form that opens up in a modal once users are redirected to the dashboard after a successful registration. Filled-out fields from this modal are a requirement for companies to have public profiles on our Site and help you to get more from our Services, including helping other organizations and business opportunities find you. We will also ask you to provide or otherwise collect additional information, such as a telephone number or other contact details. It’s your choice whether to make that sensitive information public. Please do not post or add personal data to your profile that you would not want to be publicly available.
We collect data from you when you provide, post or upload it to our Services, such as when you fill out a form, publish or apply to a project on the TDA platform, or submit a case study review.
You don’t have to post or upload data; though if you don’t, it may limit your ability to grow and use our Services.
When you publish a project on our platform it is important to be as accurate as possible and list as much relevant information as possible. We will need, at the minimum, your name, company name, project details, email contact details and preferred way for us to contact you. Please note that your email address, phone number, and other submitted information will be shared with other Users as well as affiliate networks and partners who may best fit your project needs.
You may also provide information about others (e.g. your clients), including their names, emails, phone numbers and companies to help us verify your references and feedback. You should acquire the consent of other individuals prior to providing TDA with their information. The information you provide about others is only used in the reference check and review process.
You and others may post content that includes information about you (as part of articles, case studies or blogs) on our Services. We receive data about you when you create or respond to projects published on our platform. Also, we receive data about you when you submit a case study or reference reviews from your clients.
We may also obtain information about you if it is contained in user-generated content that other users post to our Services. For example, a user could include information about you in a review they post.
1.3 Service Use
We log usage data when you visit or otherwise use our Services, including our sites and platform technology (e.g. our off-site plugins), such as when you view or click on content or ads (on or off our sites), perform a search or apply to a TDA project. We use and process the information relating to log-ins, cookies and internet protocol (“IP”) addresses to identify you and log your use. We use that information to enhance our services, improve user experience, personalize your browsing experience as well as prevent fraud and inappropriate content or behavior on our Site.
When you visit or leave our Services (including our plugins or cookies or similar technology on the sites of others), we receive the URL of both the site you came from and the one you go to next. We also get information about your IP address, proxy server, operating system, web browser and add-ons, device identifier and features, and/or ISP or your mobile carrier. If you access the Services through a mobile device and you do not want your device to provide us with GPS location-tracking information, you can disable the GPS or other location-tracking functions on your device, provided your device allows you to do this. See your device manufacturer’s instructions for further details.
We collect information about your communications with us as well as your communication with other users of our Services. In addition, we automatically collect information when you access, browse, view or otherwise use the Site. If you create or respond to a TDA project, we track whether you have acted on it and will send you reminders.
Our Services are not intended for use by children under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone younger than 18 years old. If we become aware that personal information has been collected from a person under the age of 18, we will delete this information as quickly as possible.
How we use your personal data will depend on which Services you use, how you use those Services and the choices you make in your settings. We use the data that we have about you to provide and personalize, including with the help of automated systems and inferences we make, our Services (including ads) so that they can be more relevant and useful to you and others.
Where relevant under applicable laws, all processing of your personal information will be justified by a “lawful ground” for processing. In the majority of cases, processing will be justified on the basis that:
Where we rely on your consent to process personal data, you have the right to withdraw or decline your consent at any time and where we rely on legitimate interests, you have the right to object or submit a Data Request. If you have any questions about the lawful bases upon which we collect and use your personal data, please contact our Data Protection Officer.
Our Services allow you to find business partners, clients, and other professional contacts. We will use data about you (such as your profile) to help others find your profile, suggest projects for you and other Services.
It is your choice whether to approach an organization found through our Services or to create or apply to a project. When you apply or respond to a TDA Pitch, this action will include such information as you provide.
Our Services allow you to stay informed about news, events and ideas regarding professional topics you care about, and from professionals you respect. We use the data we have about you (e.g. data you provide, data we collect from your engagement with our Services and inferences we make from the data we have about you), to provide relevant content on our Services and to make suggestions about how to find the best partner for your business on our platform.
We sell premium Services that provide our customers and subscribers customized search functionality, tools, promotion, editorial support, social media coverage, or project and account management, as part of our business solutions. Customers can export limited information from your profile, such as organization name, website, location, languages, and areas of expertise. A premium Services customer can store information he/she has about you in our premium Services, such as project materials or contact information.
We will contact you through email, notices posted on our websites and other ways through our Services, including push notifications. We will send you messages about the availability of our Services, security, or other service-related issues. We also send messages about how to use the Services, network updates, reminders, and promotional messages from us and our partners. You may change your communication preferences at any time. Please be aware that you cannot opt-out of receiving service messages from us, including security and legal notices.
We measure the performance of ads to Members, Visitors and others both on and off our Services directly or through a variety of partners, using the following data, whether separately or combined:
We do not share your personal data with any third-party advertisers or ad networks for their advertising except for (i) hashed or device identifiers (to the extent they are personal data in some countries); (ii) with your separate permission or (iii) data already visible to any users of the Services (e.g. your profile). However, if you view or click on an ad on or off our site, the ad provider will get a signal that someone visited the page that displayed the ad, and they may through the use of mechanisms such as cookies determine it is you.
Advertising partners can associate personal data collected by the advertiser directly from you with our cookies and similar technologies. In such instances, we seek to contractually require such advertising partners to obtain your explicit, opt-in consent before doing so.
We use data and content about Members for invitations and communications promoting membership and network growth, engagement and our Services.
2.7 Developing Services and Research
We use data, including public feedback, to conduct research and development for the further development of our Services in order to provide you and others with a better, more intuitive experience, drive membership growth and engagement on our Services, and help connect organizations and digital service providers with each other and to other business opportunities.
We seek to create business opportunities for Members of the global economy and to help them be more productive and successful. We use the data available to us to research industry trends and policies that help bridge the gap in various industries and geographic areas.
Polls and surveys are conducted by us and others through our Services. You are not obligated to respond to polls or surveys, and you have choices about the information you provide.
2.8 Customer Support
We use the data (which can include your communications) to investigate, respond to and resolve complaints and Service issues (e.g. bugs).
We use your data to produce and share aggregated insights that do not identify you. For example, we may use your data to generate statistics about our members, their industry or location, to calculate ad impressions served or clicked on, or to publish visitor demographics for a Service or industry insights.
Any data that you include on your profile and any content you post or action you take on our Services will be seen by others.
Your profile is fully visible to all Members and customers of our Services. It can also be visible to others e.g. Visitors to our Services or users of third-party search engines.
Our Services allow viewing and sharing information including through posts and creating projects.
Some Members (or their employers) need, for legal or professional compliance, to archive their communications (e.g. creation or responses to projects) and other activity, and will use the services of others to provide these archival services.
We use others to help us provide our Services (e.g. maintenance, analysis, audit, payments, fraud detection, marketing and development). They will have access to your information as reasonably necessary to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for other purposes.
It is possible that we will need to disclose information about you when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (i) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (ii) enforce our agreements with you, (iii) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, (iv) protect the security or integrity of our Service (such as by sharing with companies facing similar threats); or (v) exercise or protect the rights and safety of TDA, our Members, personnel, or others. We attempt to notify Members about legal demands for their personal data when appropriate in our judgment unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. We may dispute such demands when we believe, at our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague, or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand.
We retain your data while your account is in existence or as needed to provide you Services. This includes data you or others provided to us and data generated or inferred from your use of our Services. Even if you only use our Services every few years, we will retain your information and keep your free profile open until you decide to close your account.
We will retain personal information as long as it is necessary or relevant for our services (e.g. holding an accurate record of your business with us in the event of any dispute or complaints). In some cases, we choose to retain certain information (e.g. visits to sites carrying our plugins without clicking on the plugin) in a depersonalized or aggregated form.
We provide many choices about the collection, use and sharing of your data — from deleting or correcting data you include in your profile, to cookies [opt-outs] and other controls. We offer you settings to control and manage the personal data we have about you.
For data that we hold about you:
Visitors can learn more about how to make these requests here. You may also contact us using the contact information below, and we will consider your request in accordance with applicable laws.
This section of the Policy applies to you if you are in the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) or the United Kingdom (UK).
Under applicable EU regulation, you have the following rights in respect of your personal information:
Under certain circumstances, you may have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data by us, and we may be required to no longer process your personal data. If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. In this case, your personal data will no longer be processed for such purposes by us.
You have the right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority for data protection.
Please note that the right of access and the right to erasure do not constitute absolute rights and the interests of other individuals may restrict your right of access or erase in accordance with local laws.
We will ask you for additional data to confirm your identity and for security purposes, before disclosing data requested by you. We will decline to process requests that jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or would cause us to take any action that is not permissible under applicable laws. Additionally, as permitted by applicable laws, we will retain where necessary certain personal information for a limited period of time for record-keeping, accounting and fraud prevention purposes.
We retain your data even after you have closed your account if reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations (including law enforcement requests), meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, maintain security, prevent fraud and abuse, enforce our User Agreement, or fulfill your request to “unsubscribe” from further messages from us. We will retain de-personalized information after your account has been closed.
Information you have shared with others (e.g. through profile or actions related to TDA RFPs) will remain visible after you close your account or delete the information from your own profile or mailbox, and we do not control data that other Members copied out of our Services. Your profile may continue to be displayed in the services of others (e.g. search engine results) until they refresh their cache.
We implement security safeguards designed to prevent unauthorized access, misuse, or loss of data, including but not limited to:
We process data both inside and outside of Ireland and the Republic of Croatia and rely on legally provided mechanisms to lawfully transfer data across borders. Countries where we process data may have laws that are different, and potentially not as protective, as the laws of your own country.
We currently do not share personal data with third parties for their direct marketing purposes without your permission. We undertake steps to limit direct marketing to a reasonable and proportionate level, and to send you communications we think may be of interest or relevance to you.
If you have questions or complaints regarding this Policy, please contact TDA online. If contacting us does not resolve your complaint, you may contact the relevant Data Protection Authority. Residents in the Designated Countries may also have the right to contact our Data Protection Officer here.
