Information from Website Browsers
If you’re just browsing the website, we collect the same basic information that most websites collect. We use common internet technologies, such as cookies and web server logs. This is information we collect from everybody, whether they have an account or not.
The information we collect about all visitors to our website includes the visitor’s browser type, language preference, referring site, additional websites requested, and the date and time of each visitor request. We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
Information from Users with Accounts
If you create an account with Mozaik, we require some basic information at the time of account creation. You will create your own user name and password, and we will ask you for a valid email account. You may also be asked to provide us with more information which may include “User Personal Information.”
“User Personal Information” is any information about one of our users which could, alone or together with other information, personally identify him or her. Information such as a user name and password, an email address, a real name, and a photograph are examples of “User Personal Information.”
User Personal Information does not include aggregated, non-personally identifying information. We may use aggregated, non-personally identifying information to operate, improve, and optimize our website and service.
User Personal Information is collected in order to:
o Create your account, and to provide the services you request.
o Identify you on Mozaik and on the Mozaik forums.
o Fill out your profile and share that profile with other users and employees if you ask us to.
o Communicate with you, through email, if permission if given by you, and only for the approved purposed. Please see our section on email communication for more information.
We limit our use of your User Personal Information to the purposes listed in this Privacy Statement. If we need to use your User Personal Information for other purposes, we will ask your permission first. You can always see what information we have, how we’re using it, and what permissions you have given us in your user profile.
What Information Mozaik Does Not Collect
We do not intentionally collect sensitive personal information, such as social security numbers, genetic data, health information, or religious information. Although Mozaik does not request or intentionally collect any sensitive personal information, we realize that you might store this kind of information in your account, such as in a repository. If you store any sensitive personal information on our servers, you are consenting to our storage of that information on our servers, which are in the United States.
We do not intentionally collect information that is stored in your repositories or other free-form content inputs. Information in your repositories belongs to you, and you are responsible for it, as well as, for making sure that your content complies with our Terms of Service. Mozaik employees do not access private repositories unless required to for security or maintenance, or for support reasons, with the consent of the repository owner.
If your repository is public, any other account user (including us) may view its contents. If you have included private or sensitive information in your public repository, such as email addresses, that information may be indexed by search engines or used by third parties.
If you’re a child under the age of 13, you may not have an account on Mozaik. Mozaik does not knowingly collect information from or direct any of our content specifically to children under 13. If we learn or have reason to suspect that you are a user who is under the age of 13, we will unfortunately have to close your account. Please see our Terms of Service for information about account termination.
How We Share the Information We Collect
We do not share, sell, rent, or trade User Personal Information with third parties for their commercial purposes. We do not disclose User Personal Information outside Mozaik, except in the situations listed in the section below on Compelled Disclosure.
We may only share User Personal Information with your permission, so we can perform services you have requested.
We do not host advertising on Mozaik. We or you may occasionally embed content from third party sites when using our User forum, which may contain limited advertising.
We may share User Personal Information if we are involved in a merger, sale, or acquisition. If any such change of ownership happens, we will ensure that it is under terms that preserve the confidentiality of User Personal Information, and we will notify you on our website or by email before any transfer of your User Personal Information. The organization receiving any User Personal Information will have to honor any promises we have made in our Privacy Statement or in our Terms of Service.
A cookie is a small piece of text that our web server stores on your computer or mobile device, which your browser sends to us when you return to our site. Cookies do not necessarily identify you if you are merely visiting Mozaik; however, a cookie may store a unique identifier for each logged in user. The cookies Mozaik sets are essential for the operation of the website, or are used for performance or functionality. By using our website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your computer or device.
“Do Not Track” is a privacy preference you can set in your browser if you do not want online services to collect and share certain kinds of information about your online activity from third party tracking services. We do not track your online browsing activity on other online services over time and we do not permit third-party services to track your activity on our site beyond our basic Google Analytics tracking, which you may opt out of here. Because we do not share this kind of data with third party services or permit this kind of third party data collection on Mozaik for any of our users, and we do not track our users on third-party websites ourselves, we do not need to respond differently to an individual browser’s Do Not Track setting.
If you are interested in turning on your browser’s privacy and Do Not Track settings, the Do Not Track website has browser-specific instructions.
How Mozaik Secures Your Information
Mozaik takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect User Personal Information from unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction; maintain data accuracy; and help ensure the appropriate use of User Personal Information. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
No method of transmission, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. For more information, see our security disclosures.
Mozaik’s Global Privacy Practices and Notice to European Users
Information that we collect will be stored and processed in the United States in accordance with this Privacy Statement. However, we understand that we have users from different countries and regions with different privacy expectations, and we try to meet those needs.
We provide the same standard of privacy protection to all our users around the world, regardless of their country of origin or location.
The Data Protection Act puts obligations on users of User Personal Information within the European Union (EU) and sets forth principles for its use. One principle states that information must be processed fairly and lawfully. This means that citizens of the EU are entitled to know how we intend to use User Personal Information. Details are publicly available at ico.org.uk or from:
The Data Protection Act does not generally apply to data about limited companies or partnerships, but it does cover personal data relating to sole traders and partnerships. When we receive an application from a business, we may perform a search with a credit reference agency and fraud prevention agency on the individual company directors or partners.
