Information You give to us. For example, when the User in name and on behalf of the represented Member may choose to sign up for an Opportunity Network membership, we will ask for information, like User’s name and email, Member’s geographical and industrial focus.
Information we get from the use of our Services. We may collect information about the User, the Member and the Service that the User in name and on behalf of a Member of the Opportunity Network uses and how he/she uses them, like when he/she visits different areas of our website or he/she views and interacts with our ads and content. We use various technologies to collect and store information when the User visits and uses Opportunity Network, and this may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to User’s device. Such Personal Information is collected on the website and generated by the Services usage, it will be subject to all provisions regarding its filings, records, processing, keeping and transferring under UK law and the law of Opportunity Network’s affiliates’ countries where such data could be collected, processed or accessed.
Information You share through the Service. Many of our Services let the Member of the Opportunity Network to share information with others. Remember that when the Member share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines. Our Services provide the Member with different options on sharing and removing content. Moreover, when an Opportunity Network membership has been created via invitation received from a Trusted Partner, the Member also shares some information with the Trusted Partner, such as when the Member joins Opportunity Network, shares opportunities and creates connections.
The information we collect from the Users and/or the Members of the Opportunity Network includes:
For Legal Reasons. We will share information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Opportunity Network if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of them is reasonably necessary to:
With Trusted Partners. When the Member’s memberships have been created via invitation received from a Trusted Partner, the Trusted Partner receives information concerning its Members, such as when Members join Opportunity Network, share opportunities and create connections. The Trusted Partner may process the information of its invited Members of the Opportunity Network in order to single out and report opportunities such Members may be interested in or offer services that may help such Members achieve an Opportunity.
Anonymized Data. We may also share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our Services.
Your Rights. The User may exercise at any time its rights of access, rectification, erasure, restriction on processing, and objection to the processing of data, as well as to withdraw at any time any consents that the User has previously given to Opportunity Network. The Member of Opportunity Network has also the right of portability which means the right to receive the personal data which was provided and transmit those data to another controller, as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Contact Us. To that effect the User may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, enclosing a copy of its ID or equivalent official document certifying its identity. We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), or risk the privacy of others.
Data Protection Authorities.

On our website, Users are given the opportunity to subscribe to Opportunity Network newsletters. We inform the Member of Opportunity Network and business partners by means of newsletters about Opportunity Network offers and updates. Opportunity Network newsletters may only be received if (a) the Member has a valid e-mail address, and (b) the Member registers for newsletters shipping. Opportunity Network newsletters contain so called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Opportunity Network may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a Member, and which links in the e-mail were called up by Members.
The Services are not intended for or designed to attract any person under the age of 18 or of the different legal age provided by each country in which the User has access to our Services.

If Opportunity Network learns that Personal Information of persons under the age of 18 or of the different legal age provided by each country in which the User has access to the Services has been collected on the Service's platform, then Opportunity Network may deactivate the User's account.
Storage. Opportunity Network is committed to ensure that the User's information is kept and stored securely, and we maintain reasonable physical, technical and organizational measures and procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect through our Services and our website. This has been done with a view to preventing unauthorized or unlawful processing of the User’s Personal Information and accidental, unauthorized or unlawful access, use, processing, copying, alteration, transfer, loss or destruction of, or damage to Personal Information. We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
Access by Employees. We restrict access to Personal Information to Opportunity Network employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for Us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
Potential Security Breaches. Whilst Opportunity Network has done all of this to comply with the standards required by applicable laws, Opportunity Network cannot guarantee that such information will not be subject to unauthorized access, disclosing, alteration or destruction, Opportunity Network has physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in place to protect information. Information is stored on Opportunity Network’s servers and protected by secured networks to which access is limited to a few Opportunity Network’s authorized employees and personnel. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. If Opportunity Network learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify the User electronically so that he/she will be able to take appropriate protective steps. We may also have the obligation to contact the relevant Data Protection Authority according to the current legislation in force. Furthermore, Opportunity Network may also post a notice on the Service platform whether a security breach occurs.
