Consent to Organizational Performance Systems Processing Information About You
Organizational Performance Systems Communications
As described in the User Agreement, we will communicate with you through email and notices posted on the Organizational Performance Systems website, messages to your Organizational Performance Systems inbox, or through other means available through the service, including mobile text messages. We may send you a series of emails that help inform new Users about the features of the Services, and we will also send you service messages relating to the functioning of the Services. We may also send you messages with promotional information directly or on behalf of our partners, unless you have opted out of receiving promotional information.
You can change your e-mail and contact preferences at any time by logging into your account and changing your settings related to your email notification choices. If you wish, you can also opt-out of receiving promotional emails by sending a request to Organizational Performance Systems.
Please be aware that you cannot opt-out of receiving service messages from Organizational Performance Systems. Also, if we send communications to you via the carrier service with which you have a mobile communications subscription or otherwise have access, you understand you will pay any service fees associated with your receipt of messages on your mobile device (including text messaging charges).
Many communications you initiate through Organizational Performance Systems (e.g., an invitation sent to a non-User) will list your primary email address and name in the header of the message. Messages you initiate may also provide aggregate information about your network, but will not list the people to whom you're directly connected. Your contact information will only be shared with another User if both of you have indicated that you would like to establish contact with each other.
We use information provided to us (or to third parties with whom it offers combined services) to customize your experience on our website.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
Organizational Performance Systems takes the privacy of our Users very seriously, and we do not sell, rent, or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to third parties for marketing purposes. Further, we will only share your personally identifiable information with third parties to carry out your instructions or to provide the Services or information unless compelled by law, or as necessary to enforce our User Agreement or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Organizational Performance Systems, its Users, and the public. For example, we use a credit card processing company to bill Users for subscription fees. These third parties do not retain, share, or store any personally identifiable information except to provide these services, and they are bound by confidentiality agreements limiting the use of your information.
We also offer a "public profile" feature that allows Users to publish portions of their Organizational Performance Systems profile to the public internet. This public profile is what search engines will display when someone searches for your name. Users may opt-out of this feature by editing their account settings; however, Organizational Performance Systems does not warrant how often third-party search engines will update their caches, which may contain old public profile information.
We may provide aggregated anonymous data about the usage of the Services to third parties for purposes that we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate, including to prospective advertisers on Organizational Performance Systems.
Working with Third Parties to Offer Services.
We may collaborate with third parties to offer services and functionality using Organizational Performance Systems developer tools such as our application programming interfaces ("APIs"). These third parties are either partners ("Organizational Performance Systems Partners") with whom we have negotiated an agreement to provide services ("Combined Services"), or developers ("Platform Developers") who have agreed to our API terms in our developer signup flow to build applications ("Platform Applications"). Both the negotiated agreements and our API terms and conditions contain restrictions on access, storage, and use of your information.
Also, despite our agreements and technical steps taken to restrict access to and avoid possible misuse of information we may not screen or audit all Combined Services or Platform Applications. We also cannot guarantee that any Organizational Performance Systems Partner or Platform Developer will abide by our agreement. You agree that your use of Combined Services or Platform Applications is on an "as is" basis and without any warranty.
If you, your contacts, members of your network, or other Users of Organizational Performance Systems use or interact with any Combined Service or Platform Application, the Organizational Performance Systems Partner or Platform Developer may access and share certain information about you with others, such as your profile information and information visible only to your contacts. This includes information about your contacts by virtue of you being connected to others. However, because a Combined Service or Platform Application can make calls on behalf of the User interacting with it to access non-public information, the level of detail accessible by the Combined Service or Platform Application through Organizational Performance Systems is constrained by the same settings that govern visibility of your data to that User on Organizational Performance Systems. For example, assuming you have not already given a Platform Developer's application permission to access your information, your non-public profile information should not be visible to someone using the same Platform Application if it is not otherwise accessible to that person on Organizational Performance Systems.
Please also note that because of our relationship with certain Organizational Performance Systems Partners and Platform Developers, permission to access certain account information may be automatically granted to provide the combined services or functionality.
To revoke permission granted to a Combined Service or Platform Application at any time, please contact Organizational Performance Systems. If the relevant Platform Developer or Application, or Organizational Performance Systems Partner is not listed under Authorized Applications, go directly to the Application Details page for the Platform Application you wish to uninstall. Note, however, that even if you revoke the permission granted a third party, your contacts, other members of your network, or other Users of Organizational Performance Systems may still be using the Platform Application, so the Platform Application or Combined Service may still have access to certain information about you, just as those Users do. That is why it is important to only connect to Users you know and trust. To report any suspected misuse of information, contact Organizational Performance Systems' customer service. Organizational Performance Systems is not responsible for your use of or inability to use any Combined Service or Platform Application, including the content, accuracy, or reliability of applications and the privacy practices or other policies of Organizational Performance Systems Partners or Platform Developers.
Polls and Surveys
Polls and Surveys may be conducted by Organizational Performance Systems, Organizational Performance Systems users or third parties. As a User, you may be invited to participate in polls and surveys from the Organizational Performance Systems website. Your selection may be random, or it may be based on your non-personally identifiable information, such as job title, geography, company size and/or industry. Whether or not you decide to participate in a poll or survey is completely up to you.
After you complete a poll, you will be given access to the aggregate responses of the poll on a results page. Some third parties may target additional content to you on the results page based on your answers in the poll. Further, Organizational Performance Systems or third parties may follow up with you via email or alerts regarding your participation unless you have opted out of receiving email messages or alerts.
We may use third parties to deliver incentives to you to participate in surveys or polls. If the delivery of incentives requires your contact information, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information to the third party fulfilling the incentive offer, which will only be used for the purpose of delivering incentives and/or verifying your contact information. It is up to you whether you provide this information, or whether you desire to take advantage of an incentive.
We will not disclose any personally identifiable information to any third parties in connection with the conduct of any polls or surveys. Your consent to use any personally identifiable information for the purposes set forth in the poll or survey will be explicitly requested by the party conducting it. You may opt-out of participating in Surveys.
We offer search services to help find information and learn more about other Users (for example, you can search for Users with particular expertise or consulting experience, or that you may know from your industry or profession), as well as employment opportunities. Organizational Performance Systems search also allows Users to find jobs, companies, and contributions to the community aspects of the Organizational Performance Systems Services, such as Groups, that will help Users more effectively use Organizational Performance Systems and expand their network. We use information from User profiles and contributions to Groups to inform and refine our search service.
Groups, and other Services
If you participate in Organizational Performance Systems Groups, or import a blog, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you choose to provide there can be read, collected, or used by other Users of these forums, as well as Platform Developers and other third parties, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. Organizational Performance Systems is not responsible for the information you choose to submit in these forums.
Testimonials and Advertisements Placed through Organizational Performance Systems Ads Service (We ought to add a "make a testimonial" section in the Share section)
If you provide any testimonials about the Organizational Performance Systems Services or place advertisements through the Organizational Performance Systems Ads, we may post those testimonials and examples of advertisements you place in connection with our promotion of these services to third parties. Testimonials and advertisements may include your name and other personal information that you have provided.
Compliance with Legal Process
It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information, profile information, or information about your activities as a Organizational Performance Systems user when required by subpoena or other legal process, or if Organizational Performance Systems has a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to (a) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (b) to enforce the User Agreement, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third party claims or allegations, or to protect the security or integrity of our site; or (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property or personal safety of Organizational Performance Systems, our Users, employees, or others.
Disclosures to others
We may also disclose your personal information and other information you provide to another third party as part of a reorganization or a sale of the assets of Organizational Performance Systems Corporation, a subsidiary or division. Any third party to which Organizational Performance Systems transfers or sells Organizational Performance Systems' assets will have the right to continue to use the personal and other information that you provide to us.
