At OpenFan, it is our mission to help you have a closer and more meaningful relationship with artists, brands and businesses by empowering you to share different aspects of who you are when you register. Upon your registration and sharing of this information, the artists, brands and businesses are able to better serve you with products, experiences, access and communications that are tailored to your interests. We care deeply about protecting your data and empowering you to be in full control over it.
Information you provide to us directly. OpenFan collects personal information when you interact with us or use the Service, such as when you engage with the Service through our Website. The personal information we collect may include your name, mailing address, email address, date of birth and any other information that you send us or that is necessary to provide the Services. You should feel free to decline to provide any information that we request, however, please note that doing so may make it impossible for OpenFan to provide the Service to you. We use the information that we collect to enter you into sweepstakes, contests or promotions where requested, to provide, maintain, improve, and protect the Service, to develop new services and to provide to our third-party partners to send promotional material as described in this policy.
We also receive personal information when you apply for a job with us, whether through our Website or other channels. Any such information gathered from job applications is used to evaluate whether your background and experience make you a candidate for a job with OpenFan.
Information We Collect When You Expressly Authorize Us to Access Data from your Social Media profile and/or Email Inbox Receipts. When you sign up with OpenFan you have the option to establish a link between your social media account (such as Facebook), or your email account. That link is built on OAuth, a secure protocol that lets you grant services like ours access to your account without ever revealing your password to us. (And you can turn this off easily from your Facebook and Gmail account settings.) Once you have authorized us to do so by associating your Email account, we will use our automated scanning technology to regularly review the contents of emails to look for emails with receipts of your purchases, including those with information about transactions with the artists or corporate brands with whom we partner. This information collected from your receipts will be used for the purposes described in this Policy, which include generating aggregated analysis, summary reports, and insights about an artist or brand’s customer preferences, derived from such transaction information as market research, data modeling, or analytics. We will use information collected about purchasing history (i.e., receipts in your inbox) to create consumer profiles and audience segments that can be used for targeted advertising and marketing, and subject to legal restrictions (including consent where necessary) we may also use technology (such as Facebook Custom Audiences and Google Advertising) to deliver advertising to you on other sites and in Mobile Apps based on the email address or other personal information you provide to us.
Information We Collect from Third Parties. We may collect information about you from the parties and services that we engage to assist us in providing the Services (see Section 2 below). We may also collect information about you from third party services and from publicly available sources. We may receive information about you when you sign-in with our Website through various social media, for example, by liking us on Facebook or following us on Twitter or by logging in to our service through your Facebook account, Gmail account, Twitter or any other third party login.
The data we receive is dependent upon your privacy settings with the applicable third-party website or service. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to our Website.
For all visitors to openfan.com, not just registered users, we collect information such as IP address, device identifier, browser type, device type, domain name, access times, duration of visit, referring URL, platform, new and repeat information, time-stamp, exit page information, and other information about how you use the Service.
Pixel Tags and Cookies: We may use third-party tracking technology to provide more helpful services to our users and marketers, such as Google Analytics, Facebook Advertising Pixel, Google Maps API, Mixpanel, Heap Analytics, and others.
We and our third party partners may automatically collect certain types of usage information when you visit our Website or use our Service. For instance, when you visit our Website, we may send one or more cookies—a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters—to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and lets us enhance your navigation through the Website. A cookie may also convey information to us about how you use our Website (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click, how frequently you access our Website and other actions you take on our Website), and allow us to track your usage of the Service over time. We may collect log file information about your browser each time you access the Service. Log file information may include anonymous information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on our Website, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of our Website.
We also may use an email delivery company to send emails. Pixel tags and cookies are used in those email messages and at our Website to help us measure the effectiveness of our communications and how visitors use our site. Pixel tags (sometimes also called “clear GIFs”) are small graphic files, invisible to the human eye, which allow websites or other online services to track users. OpenFan and our third-party service providers may use pixel tags in HTML-enabled email to track whether (and when) the recipient opened the message. We may also collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for our Website. These tools collect information sent by your browser, including the pages you visit, your use of third party applications, and other information that assists us in analyzing and improving our Website.
We may use the data collected through cookies, log file, device identifiers, location data and pixel tags to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it the next time you use our Service; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information, including advertising; (c) provide and monitor the effectiveness of our Website and our email communications; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, usage and demographic patterns on our Website; (e) diagnose or fix technology problems; and (f) otherwise to plan for and enhance our Website. The information we collect through these tracking technologies may be linked to the personal information you provide when you use the Service.
We may share your personal information in the instances described below. For further information on your choices regarding your information, see the “Your Choices About Your Information” section below. We may share your personal information as follows:
