SEE Wheelers’s mission is to connect the world’s committed individuals to allow them to contribute towards the goal of global sustainability. 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.
Table of Contents:
Our registered users (“Members”) share their identities, engage with their network, exchange knowledge and professional insights, post and view relevant content, learn and find business and career opportunities. Content and data on some of our Services is viewable to non-members (“Visitors”).
SEE Wheelers Technologies Private Limited will be the controller of your personal data provided to, or collected by or for, or processed in connection with, our Services; you are entering into the agreement with SEE Wheelers.
You provide data to create an account with us.
To create an account you need to provide data including your name, email address and/or mobile number, and a password. If you are making a commercial transaction, you will need to provide payment (e.g., credit card) and billing information.
You create your SEE Wheelers profile (a complete profile helps you get the most from our Services).
You have choices about the information on your profile, such as your education, photo, location. You don’t have to provide additional information on your profile; however, profile information helps you to get more from our Services, including networking with right partners. It’s your choice whether to include sensitive information on your profile and 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 personal data from you when you provide, post or upload it to our Services, such as when you fill out a form, respond to a survey.
You don’t have to post or upload personal data; though if you don’t, it may limit your ability to grow and engage with your network over our Services.
Others may post or write about you.
You and others may post content that includes information about you (as part of articles, posts, comments, videos) on our Services. Unless you opt out, we collect public information about you, such as news and accomplishments (e.g. suggestions for your profile, or notifications of mentions in news).
Customers and partners may provide data to us.
We receive personal data about you when you use the services of our customers and partners, such as employers, retailers, consumers.
We receive data about you when you use some of the other services provided by us or our affiliates.
We log your visits and use of our Services, including mobile apps.
We log usage data when you visit or otherwise use our Services, including our sites, app and platform technology (e.g., our off-site plugins), such as when you view or click on content (e.g., learning video) or ads (on or off our sites and apps), perform a search, install or update one of our mobile apps, share articles or apply for jobs. We use log-ins, cookies, device information and internet protocol (“IP”) addresses to identify you and log your use.
We collect data through cookies and similar technologies.
We receive data from your devices and networks, including location data.
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 use our Services from a mobile device, that device will send us data about your location based on your phone settings. We will ask you to opt-in before we use GPS or other tools to identify your precise location.
If you communicate through our Services, we learn about that.
We collect information about you when you send, receive, or engage with messages in connection with our Services. For example, if you get a SEE Wheelers connection request, we track whether you have acted on it and will send you reminders.
We get data when you visit sites that include our plugins, ads or log-in to others’ services with your SEE Wheelers account.
We receive information about your visits and interaction with services provided by others when you log-in with SEE Wheelers or visit others’ services that include our plugins (such as “Share on SEE Wheelers”), ads, or similar technologies.
We are improving our Services, which means we get new data and create new ways to use data.
We use your data to provide, support, personalize and develop our Services.
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.
Our Services help you connect with others, find and be found for personal, professional and business opportunities and stay informed.
We use your data to authorize access to our Services.
Our Services allow you to stay in touch and up to date with friends, peers, colleagues, partners, clients, and other contacts. To do so, you will “connect” with the persons who you choose, and who also wish to “connect” with you. Subject to your settings, when you connect with other Members, you will be able to search each other’s’ connections in order to exchange ideas and opportunities.
We will use data about you (such as your profile, profiles you have viewed or data provided through address book uploads or partner integrations) to help others find your profile, suggest connections for you and others (e.g. Members who share your contacts or interests) and enable you to invite others to become a Member and connect with you.
It is your choice whether to invite someone to our Services, send a connection request, or allow another Member to become your connection. When you invite someone to connect with you, your invitation will include your name, photo, network and contact information. We will send invitation reminders to the person you invited. You can choose whether or not to share your own list of connections with your connections.
Our Services allow you to stay informed about news, events and ideas regarding topics you care about, and from individuals, organisations 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 recommend relevant content and conversations on our Services, suggest ideas and provide a roadmap to improve your sustainability footprint. So, if you let us know that you are interested in a new topic (e.g., by watching a video), we will use this information to personalize content in your feed, suggest that you follow certain members on our site, or watch related content to help you towards familiarising that topic. We use your content, activity and other data, including your name and picture, to provide notices to your network and others. For example, subject to your settings, we may notify others that you have updated your profile, posted, took a social action, made new connections or were mentioned in news.
We contact you and enable communications between Members. We offer settings to control what messages you receive and how often you receive some types of messages.
We will contact you through email, mobile phone, notices posted on our websites or apps, messages to your SEE Wheelers inbox, and other ways through our Services, including text messages and 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 also enable communications between you and others through our Services, including for example invitations, groups and messages between connections.
We serve you tailored ads both on and off our Services. We offer you choices regarding personalized ads, but you cannot opt-out of seeing other ads.
We target (and 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 will show you ads called sponsored content which look similar to non-sponsored content, except that they are labelled “ads” or “sponsored.” If you take an action (such as like, comment or share) on these ads, your action is associated with your name and viewable by others, including the advertiser. Subject to your settings, if you take a social action on the SEE Wheelers Services, that action may be mentioned with related ads.
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 (e.g., lead generation form) or (iii) data already visible to any users of the Services (e.g. profile). However, if you view or click on an ad on or off our site or apps, 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 promote our Services to you and others.
We use data and content about Members for invitations and communications promoting membership and network growth, engagement and our Services.
We develop our Services and conduct 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 and personalized experience, drive membership growth and engagement on our Services, and help connect with like-minded individuals.
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.
We use data to help you and fix problems.
We use the data (which can include your communications) to investigate, respond to and resolve complaints and Service issues (e.g., bugs).
We use data to generate aggregate insights.
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 interests, education, to calculate ad impressions served or clicked on, or to publish visitor demographics.
We use data for security, fraud prevention and investigations.
Any data that you include on your profile and any content you post or social action (e.g. claps, follows, comments, shares) 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 on or off of our Services (e.g., Visitors to our Services or users of third- party search engines). Your settings, degree of connection with the viewing Member, the subscriptions they may have, their usage of our services, access channels and search types (e.g., by name or by keyword) impact the availability of your profile and whether they can view certain fields in your profile.
Our Services allow viewing and sharing information including through posts, likes, follows and comments.
Your employer may offer you access to our enterprise Services such as Recruiter, Sales Navigator, SEE Wheelers Learning or our advertising Campaign Manager. Your employer can review and manage your use of such enterprise Services.
Depending on the enterprise Service, before you use such Service, we will ask for permission to share relevant data from your profile or use of our non-enterprise Services. We understand that certain activities such as job hunting and personal messages are sensitive, and so we do not share those with your employer unless you choose to share it with them through our Services (for example, by applying for a new position in the same company or mentioning your job hunting in a message to a co-worker through our Services).
Regulated Members may need to store communications outside of our Service.
Some Members (or their employers) need, for legal or professional compliance, to archive their communications and social media activity, and will use services of others to provide these archival services. We enable archiving of messages by those Members outside of our Services. For example, a financial advisor needs to archive communications with her clients through our Services in order to maintain her professional financial advisor license.
You may link your account with others services so that they can look up your contacts’ profiles, post your shares on such platforms, or start conversations with your connections on such platforms. Excerpts from your profile will also appear on the services of others.
Other services may look-up your profile. When you opt to link your account with other services, personal data will become available to them. The sharing and use of that personal data will be described in, or linked to, a consent screen when you opt to link the accounts. For example, you may link your Twitter or WeChat account to share content from our Services into these other services, or your email provider may give you the option to upload your SEE Wheelers contacts into its own service. You may revoke the link with such accounts.
Excerpts from your profile will not appear on the services of others (e.g., search engine results that show a user a “mini” SEE Wheelers profile of the person they are meeting or messaging, social media aggregators, talent and lead managers). “Old” profile information remains on these services until they update their data cache with changes you made to your profile.
We share your data across our different Services and SEE Wheelers-affiliated entities.
We may use others to help us with our 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.
We may need to share your data when we believe it’s required by law or to help protect the rights and safety of you, us or others.
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 (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce our agreements with you, (3) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, (4) protect the security or integrity of our Service (such as by sharing with companies facing similar threats); or (5) exercise or protect the rights and safety of SEE Wheelers, 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, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand.
We keep most of your personal data for as long as your account is open.
We retain your personal 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 for few years, we will retain your information and keep your profile open until you decide to close your account. In some cases we choose to retain certain information (e.g., visits to sites carrying our “share with SEE Wheelers”) in a depersonalized or aggregated form.
You can access or delete your personal data. You have many choices about how your data is collected, used and shared.
For personal data that we have about you:
Visitors may also contact us using the contact information below, and we will consider your request in accordance with applicable laws.
Residents in the Designated Countries (EU) may have additional rights under their laws.
We keep some of your data even after you close your account.
If you choose to close your SEE Wheelers account, your personal data will generally stop being visible to others on our Services within 24 hours. We generally delete closed account information within 30 days of account closure, except as noted below.
We retain your personal 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., updates or group posts) will remain visible after you closed your account or deleted the information from your own profile or mailbox, and we do not control data that other Members copied out of our Services. Groups content and ratings or review content associated with closed accounts will show an unknown user as the source. Your profile may continue to be displayed in the services of others (e.g., search engine results) until they refresh their cache.
We monitor for and try to prevent security breaches. Please use the security features available through our Services.
We implement security safeguards designed to protect your data, such as HTTPS. We regularly monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks. However, we cannot warrant the security of any information that you send us. There is no guarantee that data may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
We store and use your data outside your country.
We process data both inside and outside of the United States and rely on legally-provided mechanisms to lawfully transfer data across borders. Countries where we process data may have laws which are different, and potentially not as protective, as the laws of your own country.
We have lawful bases to collect, use and share data about you. You have choices about our use of your data.
We will only collect and process personal data about you where we have lawful bases. Lawful bases include consent (where you have given consent), contract (where processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you (e.g. to deliver the SEE Wheelers Services you have requested)) and “legitimate interests”. 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. If you have any questions about the lawful bases upon which we collect and use your personal data, please contact us.
Our statements regarding direct marketing.
We currently do not share personal data with third parties for their direct marketing purposes without your permission.
You can contact us or use other options to resolve any complaints.
If you have questions or complaints regarding this Policy, please first contact us online. You can also reach us by physical mail.
