Privacy Policy

Last updated: March 17, 2022

This Privacy Policy describes how information about you is collected, used, and disclosed by sourced by Public Benefit Corporation (here referred to as “we”, “us”, and “sourced by”) in connection with your use of our websites, mobile applications, products, services, communications, or other interactions with us (collectively, the “Service”). Your use of the Service indicates your consent to our collection, use, and disclosure of information about you as described in this Privacy Policy.

The Information We Collect

We collect information about you when you use our Service. The types of information we collect depends on the services and the features you use on the Service. Please note that we need certain types of information to provide the Service to you. If you do not provide us with such information, or if you ask us to delete that information, you may no longer be able to access or use certain Service features.

Information You Provide Directly to Us

We may ask you to provide information to us when you use the Service, for example, when you:

The information you provide directly to us may concern you or others and may include, but is not limited to:

Information We Collect Automatically

Information We Collect From Social Media and Other Content Platforms

When you “like” or “follow” us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or other social media sites, we may collect some information from you including your name, e-mail address, and any comments or content you post relevant to us. We may also collect your information if you sign up for one of our promotions or submit information to us through social media sites.

How we use the information we collect

We use your information for business and commercial purposes, such as to:

We may aggregate and/or de-identify information collected through the Service. We may use de-identified or aggregated data for any purpose, including without limitation for research and marketing purposes and may also share such data with any third parties, including without limitation, advertisers, promotional partners, sponsors, event promoters, and/or others.

With whom & why we share your information

We may share or disclose your personal information for the following reasons:

Online analytics and tailored advertising

Analytics

We may use third-party web analytics services on the Service, such as those of Google Analytics. These service providers use the sort of technology described in the “Information we collect automatically” section above to help us analyze how users use the Service, including by noting the third-party website from which you arrive. The information collected by the technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the Service. We also use Google Analytics for certain purposes related to advertising, as described in the following section. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on.

Tailored Advertising

We may allow certain third parties (e.g., ad networks and ad servers such as Google Analytics) to serve tailored marketing to you and to access their own cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, mobile phone, or other device you use to access the Service. We neither have access to, nor does this Privacy Policy govern, the use of cookies or other tracking technologies that may be placed on your computer, mobile phone, or other device you use to access the Service by non-affiliated, third-party ad technologies, ad servers, ad networks or any other non-affiliated third parties. Those parties that use these technologies may offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising as described below. You may receive tailored advertising on your computer through a web browser. Cookies may be associated with de-identified data linked to or derived from data you voluntarily have submitted to us (e.g., your email address) that we may share with a service provider in hashed, non-human-readable form.

If you are interested in more information about tailored browser advertising and how you can generally control cookies from being put on your computer to deliver tailored marketing, you may visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s (“NAI”) Consumer Opt-Out Link and/or the Digital Advertising Alliance’s (“DAA”) Consumer Opt-Out Link to opt-out of receiving tailored advertising from companies that participate in those programs. To opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising or customize Google Display Network ads, you can visit the Google Ads Settings page. Please note that to the extent advertising technology is integrated into the Service, you may still receive advertising content even if you opt out of tailored advertising. In that case, the advertising content will just not be tailored to your interests. Also, we do not control any of the above opt-out links and are not responsible for any choices you make using these mechanisms or the continued availability or accuracy of these mechanisms. If your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit this opt-out page, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different computer or change web browsers, your NAI or DAA opt-out may no longer be effective. Additional information is available on NAI’s and DAA’s websites, accessible by the above links.

When using a mobile application you may also receive tailored in-application advertising content. Each operating system--iOS for Apple devices, Android for Android devices, and Windows for Microsoft devices--provides its own instructions on how to prevent the delivery of tailored in-application marketing content. You may review the support materials and/or the privacy settings for the respective operating systems in order to opt-out of tailored in-application advertising. For any other devices and/or operating systems, please visit the privacy settings for the applicable device or contact the applicable platform operator.

Do not track signals and similar mechanisms

We do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated Do Not Track signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working on Do Not Track standards, implementations, and solutions.

Security of Your Information

We take reasonable measures and use various safeguards to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the internet or via mobile device, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to or from us over the Internet. In particular, email sent to or from us may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Any information that you provide to us is done so entirely at your own risk.

Children’s Privacy

Our website and our accounts are not directed to children under 16. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16. If you become aware that a child has provided us with personal information without parental consent, please contact us at hello@sourcedby.co. If we become aware that a child under 16 has provided us with personal information without parental consent, we will take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account.

If you are 16 or older, but have not reached your jurisdiction’s age of majority (such that you are able to enter a contract), you should only use the Service with permission from your parent(s) or guardian(s).

Third-Party Websites

You may exercise your right to opt out of your data being used or shared.

Account Information: You may update, correct, or modify information about you at any time by logging into your account or emailing us at hello@sourcedby.co. If you wish to deactivate your account, please email us at hello@sourcedby.co, but note that we may continue to retain information about you for the purposes authorized under this Privacy Policy unless prohibited by law.

Cookies: Most web browsers are set to accept Cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. The method for disabling Cookies may vary by device and browser, but can usually be found in your device or browser preferences or security settings. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of the Service.

Online advertising networks: You may opt out of receiving targeted ads based on the information we collect from you. If you do not want to receive such ads, you may opt-out by visiting either of the following sites:

If you choose to opt out, we will still send you non-promotional communications, such as those about your account or our ongoing business relations.

Marketing Text Messages: To opt out of marketing text messages, you must reply STOP to the text message. You agree that texting “STOP” in response to our text message is the only reasonable method of opting out. You also understand and agree that any other method of opting out, including, but not limited to, texting words other than “STOP”, “UNSUBSCRIBE”, “CANCEL”, “END”, “QUIT”, “STOPALL”, or verbally requesting one of our employees to remove you from our list, is not a reasonable means of opting out.

Please note that if you opt out by exercising any of these choices, you may still temporarily see or receive communications or advertising due to initiatives already underway. You will be removed from any subsequent initiatives.

Certain information may also be exempt from such requests in some circumstances, which may include needing to continue processing your information to comply with a legal obligation. We may request that you provide us with information necessary to confirm your identity before responding to your request.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change or modify this Privacy Policy at any time and in our sole discretion. If we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by sending an email communication, providing notice through the Service, or updating the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy whenever you use or access the Service or otherwise interact with us to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

Supplemental Privacy Notice for California Residents

This Supplemental Privacy Notice supplements the information in our Privacy Policy above, and except as provided herein, applies solely to California residents. It applies to personal information we collect on or through the Service and through other means (such as information collected offline, in person, and over the telephone). It does not apply to personal information we collect from our employees and job applicants in their capacity as employees and job applicants. It also does not apply to personal information we collect from employees, owners, directors, officers, or contractors of businesses in the course of our provision or receipt of business-related services.

Summary of Information We Collect

If you are a California resident, California law requires us to provide you with some additional information regarding how we collect, use, and share your “personal information” (as defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”)).

Throughout our Privacy Policy, we describe the specific pieces of personal information we collect, the sources of that information, and how we share it. Under the CCPA, we also have to provide you with the “categories” of personal information we collect and disclose for “business purposes” (as those terms are defined by applicable law). Those categories are identifiers (such as name, email address, phone number, and other account information); commercial information (such as transaction data); financial data (such as credit card and other financial account information); internet or other network or device activity (such as IP address); geolocation information (general location); inference data about you; sensory information (such as audio recordings if you call customer service); other information that identifies or can be reasonably associated with you.

We collect the categories of personal information identified above from the following sources: (1) directly from you; (2) through your use of the Service; (3) affiliates; and (4) third parties such as social networks and marketing partners.

We or our service providers may collect the above categories of information for the following business or commercial purposes:

Our or our service provider’s operational purposes;

We may also use the above categories of personal information for compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and we may combine the information we collect (“aggregate”) or remove pieces of information (“de-identify”) to limit or prevent identification of any particular user or device.

We describe our information sharing practices in our Privacy Policy. We may share certain categories of personal information with third parties for business purposes. For example, we may share any of the categories described above with our subsidiaries or affiliates. If you connect your account with social media services or interact with social media plugins or links on the Service, we may share identifiers, commercial information, internet or other network or device activity, or general location with those social media services. We may also share identifiers with marketing cooperatives for advertising purposes.

Rights

If you are a California resident, you may have certain rights. California law may permit you to request that we:

If you would like to exercise any of these rights, you can submit a request at hello@sourcedby.co.

You will be required to verify your identity before we fulfill your request. To do so, you will need to provide information to match with our existing records to verify your identity, depending on the nature of the request and the sensitivity of the information sought. You can also designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. To do so, you must provide us with written authorization or a power of attorney, signed by you, for the agent to act on your behalf. You will still need to verify your identity directly with us.

“Sale” of Personal Information

California residents may opt out of the “sale” of their personal information. The CCPA broadly defines “sale” in a way that may include allowing third parties to receive certain information such as cookie identifiers, IP addresses and/or browsing behavior to add to a profile about your device, browser or you. Such profiles may enable delivery of interest-based advertising by such third parties within their platform or on other sites.

Depending on how you use the Service, we may share the following categories of information for such interest-based advertising which may be considered a sale (as defined by the CCPA): identifiers (such as name, address, and device identifiers), internet and device activity, and commercial information (e.g., the fact that a browser visited a page directed to people who are considering purchasing from us).

We may also share identifiers with our marketing cooperative partners.

You may opt out of our use of your personal information for these purposes through the following methods:

Marketing Cooperatives: If you prefer that we do not share your name and address with our marketing cooperative partners, please opt-out via this opt-out form.

If you would like to opt out of the use of your information through online advertising networks, you may do so by visiting both of the following websites:

NAI –http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/

DAA –http://www.aboutads.info/choices/

California Shine the Light

California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident, you may ask us to refrain from sharing your personal information with certain third parties for their marketing purposes. To make such a request, please use this form. Alternatively, you may contact us at the address listed above or by phone at: 206.765.7400

Supplemental Notice for Nevada Residents

Under Nevada law, certain Nevada consumers may opt out of the sale of “personally identifiable information” for monetary consideration to a person for that person to license or sell such information to additional persons. “Personally identifiable information” includes first and last name, address, email address, phone number, Social Security Number, or an identifier that allows a specific person to be contacted either physically or online.

We do not engage in such activity; however, if you are a Nevada resident who has purchased or leased goods or services from us, you may submit a request to opt out of any potential future sales under Nevada law by emailing hello@sourcedby.co. Please note we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity and the authenticity of the request. Once verified, we will maintain your request in the event our practices change.

International Users

If you are visiting from the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use, please note that you are agreeing to the transfer of your personal information outside the country in which you reside, including, but not limited to the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world. Your personal data may be transferred for processing and storage by us and our affiliates and third parties. By providing your personal data you consent to any transfer and processing in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
