Information We Collect

We gather "personal information" about users of the Site and the Service during our daily operations. As defined in this Policy, "personal information" means information that identifies or is capable of being associated with an identifiable person. Certain examples of personal information comprise the name, address, and email address of the user. Aggregate information or de-identified information is not personal information. "Aggregate information" is information about the usage of the Site, such as information gathered about Site users, or a category of services or users, from which any personal information has been removed. An example of aggregate information would be a report indicating that 23% of the Site's registered users identify themselves as female.

Personal information we receive is mainly from users who register on the Site, use the Service or who otherwise voluntarily provide us with information in relation to various activities on the Site or Service. Information we require at registration includes, without limitation, name, address and e-mail address. In addition, we may gather other types of information during registration or relating to your other activities on the Site, such as company information and information included in postings you put in forums or any other interactive areas of the Site, your replies to surveys, your participation in sweepstakes, competitions, games and promotional offers; as well as in any email request you send us for any reason (such as to requiring a customer service or providing us with comments or feedback).

If you take part in contests or surveys, we will require certain personal information from you. Your participation in these surveys or contests is certainly voluntary, thus, you have a choice whether or not to reveal this information. Required information usually includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code).

We also automatically gather certain information while you use the Site or Service. We collect some information automatically and store it in log files.

Our aim is improving the services we offer you, as well as upgrading the marketing, analytics, and site functionality.

We also log the information when you reached the Site by clicking on a link or advertisement on another site. Thus, we may understand our users' interests and maximize our online exposure. Moreover, we maintain server logs providing us with general information on visitors and customers, thus helping us in administering our Site and providing the Service. Sometimes, we gather non-personally identifiable information about our visitors and customers as a whole, so that performance data can be tracked, logged and reported back for analysis of the manner in which these visitors and customers generally use our Site and Service, as well as their various features.

Social Media Content Privacy Policy

Our practices in terms of privacy, i.e. publicly available contents obtained from the Internet through the WeLink services ("Service") are defined under Social Media Content Policy. This Privacy Policy includes additional information on our collection, usage and disclosure of information gathered from customers and users of our Service and our website.

Description of the Service

The Service provides a proprietary platform and online tools, allowing our customers to:
(i) monitor, access, store and manage social media contents ("Contents") connected with their brand, products and services, activities, as well as their industry; and
(ii) analyze the Contents and identify trends, sentiment, mood and volume.

We display to our customers certain metrics related to personal posts on applicable social media websites and the persons associated with the applicable Contents to the extent to which this information is publicly available and/or available via API from the relevant website operators as part of the Service. Examples of metrics applicable to any particular post include the number of comments, number of unique commentators, number of likes (or similar action), as well as the number of followers.

These and other metrics provide for better analysis of the Contents by our customers. In addition, our Service contains key tools that enable you to analyze Content, such as contents categorization and its displaying through different graphs and representations, as well as its supplementation with other data and insights. Sometimes, we use third parties to provide additional analysis and data on the Contents. If there are historic data, our customers will also be able to analyze the Contents by using such data, providing a historical context thereof. Moreover, you are able, through the Service, to engage and communicate in either a public or a private dialogue with individuals posting contents. You are responsible as a sender of messages to individuals, and you must agree to comply with all applicable laws referring to sending of unsolicited e-mail or spam and any terms of service of the Website from which the individuals post was obtained. You can also store any such communications in the Service as stipulated in the Terms of Service.

How We Collect Contents

As part of our Service, we collect Contents from several Websites and social network-related Websites. Such Websites are publicly available and they can be found and accessed directly by using standard search engine technology and methods. Web crawler may be used for obtaining the Contents, by utilizing publicly available APIs, all in line with the applicable terms and protocols of the applicable Websites, including without limitation any robots.txt protocols. Our policy is to never avoid technical controls, such as usernames and passwords, for the purpose of obtaining contents, nor do we seek to thwart CAPTCHA technology (Completely Automated Public Turing Test To Tell Computers and Humans Apart). Moreover, we limit crawling to portions of Websites that are made public by the applicable Website operator.

Use of Contents

Your use of Contents is regulated by, and must be in line with our Terms of Service, the terms of service of the applicable Website from which the contents is obtained or derived, and applicable law. You are responsible only for your compliance with the above-mentioned, and we are not responsible for any failure on your part to do so.

Contents about You

If we hold contents about you, or you think we hold such contents, you may be legally entitled, upon written request, to access such Contents (subject to certain exceptions), and request for that information be corrected or deleted, as the case may be, if it is incomplete or inaccurate, or if we have obtained it by violating applicable law or website terms and conditions. In that case, to the extent known, we will notify you of the contents we store about you (susceptible to others' privacy interests or legal rights), the manner of its usage and any other information required under applicable law. We are obliged to correct and erase only the contents in our possession rather than any contents held by our customers or other third parties. Furthermore, as long as any contents continue to exist on the Internet, we will continue to access and utilize such contents in spite of any request for correction or deletion. Our obligation is limited to the extent required by applicable law or to terms and conditions to which we have agreed.
