Privacy and Security
Two things are paramount:
1. The privacy and safety of your personal information
2. Ensuring users retain ownership of their personal data on the platform
We have utilized a Privacy-by-Design methodology while building THINK. The result is a platform that integrates best practices with international standards for user privacy. Currently, THINK participates in the European Union-United States Privacy Shield Framework and is subject to investigation and enforcement of compliance by the US Federal Trade Commission. As technology advances and important international privacy standards go into effect, we will continue to implement them into the platform. Should user privacy questions arise, a process is in place for users to contact us at any time with privacy-related concerns. It’s also important to note, we do not knowingly collect or solicit information from children under the age of 13
In every step of the THINK platform build, robust security has been a primary objective. We adhere to industry standards and safeguards for data security, including using unique passwords for all users and using HTTPS Protocol, SSL Certificates, 256bit Encryption and VPNs at appropriate points of data transmissions and storage. We have built in advanced detection functionality and have an internal breach response plan
First, there’s the information you give THINK. Things like your account/profile details, posts, location, friends, organizations you like, your comments, reactions, and interactions with others all fall into this category. This information shapes your user experiences on the THINK platform.
Second, there is automated information collected from your use of THINK. This includes your device-specific information, log information, metadata, and analytics. This data is used to optimize, enhance, and improve your user experience on THINK.
Saybubble will not sell identifiable personal information from either category to an outside party
When you post to the map you have the option to make your post “Public” or “Private”. If “private” is selected, this means a post will only be seen by a user’s “friends” or by an organization’s “members”. If either of these two parties posts to the “public” map their contribution is now discoverable by all platform users. While at times it is necessary to only share information with a specific group, we encourage posting to the public map to optimize the platform’s purpose – help inform, educate, inspire, and increase the exposure of important initiatives and issues. It’s important to note, once a post is made public it cannot be converted to private. At this time, you will need to delete the public post and repost it to your private feed, and vice versa, if you have made a post private and you would like it to be public, you will need to delete it and repost it to the public feed
We recognize that if the grassroots movements across the country are going to be successful, tools are needed to minimize workload, increase efficiencies, and avoid costs. Because our platform provides paid services for businesses, THINK can provide a free and exclusive solution for grassroots groups that won’t compromise users’ or members’ privacy. We don’t share your personally identifiable information with any 3rd party advertising technology companies for any reason. Your privacy settings facilitate an ad-free environment within your communities
THINK offers users a simple method to view and download your entire THINK source data profile. With one click, the “download” feature will allow you to make a complete copy of your data to port over to your own devices or to other cloud services.
You may choose to deactivate or delete your account at any time. We recommend that you use the data download feature before you deactivate or delete your account. Following such a request, THINK may retain your information and user content only for commercially reasonable processing time. THINK may be subject to legal obligations for retention in rare instances
*Note: We will disclose your personal information if required by law. However, we will also provide periodic transparency reports detailing the number of requests for personal information we have received by public authorities for law enforcement and national security reasons, to the extent that such disclosures are permissible under applicable law
