SCOPE

This privacy policy applies to offskip.com and its subdomains (the “Site”), and our mobile apps, all of which are owned and operated by 5Degrees KlG. It does not apply to any third-party websites, which have their own policies. Throughout this policy, when we say Offskip, we mean our company, including the Site and any Offskip mobile apps, and when we say Services we mean the products and services, and apps we make available to you through our Site and mobile apps.

By “Personal Information” we mean information about an identifiable individual. That’s what this policy is about – our collection, protection, use, retention, disclosure and other processing of Personal Information and your rights relating to these activities. We also compile certain aggregate data about our users.

What is aggregate data? “Tim Smith travels twice a year to Phuket” is the Personal Information of Tim Smith, but “20% of Offskip users travel twice a year to Asia” is aggregate data.

We use Personal Information in order to provide you and your business with the Services. Our Privacy Policy is based on the following 10 fair information principles:

  1. Accountability
  2. Identifying purposes
  3. Consent
  4. Limiting collection
  5. Limiting use, disclosure, and retention
  6. Accuracy
  7. Safeguards
  8. Openness
  9. Individual access
  10. Challenging compliance
Accountability and Challenging Compliance (#1 and #10)

Identifying Purposes (#2)

Offskip collects, uses, discloses, and otherwise manages Personal Information in a variety of ways related to the Services we provide. We’ve outlined these below. Your use of the Services determines which information we collect and use. Offskip may collect, use, store, or disclose your Personal Information for the purposes described below.

  • In order to provide you with the Services, which includes the following:
    • We collect information directly from you, but may also collect information from third parties when you connect your Offskip account to them. These integrations may pull data into or share data out of Offskip. In some cases, we use a service provider to connect you to a third-party service (e.g.. when you connect to your social accounts).
    • We may also collect your name and email address from third parties when you sign up and login to our Site using single sign-on (SSO).
    • When you connect your Offskip account with a third-party service, their terms and policies apply.
  • To promote or offer you products or services, and to determine your eligibility for new services we may offer from time to time.
  • To provide you with educational materials and guides relevant to the Services you use.
  • To contact you for the purposes of Service updates and system and account notifications
  • To provide you with support in connection with the Services.
  • To comply with any laws, regulations, court orders, warrants, inquiries, subpoenas or other legal processes or investigations, and to protect ourselves, other individuals, or property from harm.
  • In connection with a prospective or completed merger or sale (including insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of Offskip or as part of a corporate reorganization or stock sale or other change in corporate control.

We will never sell your Personal Information to other companies!

Consent (#3)

Offskip takes a consent-based approach to the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information.

Submitting the Personal Information of others

When you submit the Personal Information of your customers or employees to us, you are responsible for informing such customers and employees about Offskip, and for obtaining any necessary consent or authority from them.

You may also choose to refer someone to our Site. We will send them a single invitation email to the address you provide. Please ensure that you only submit email addresses of individuals or businesses with whom you have a relationship and who would want to receive the message.

Closing your Offskip account

At any time and without penalty, Offskip users can withdraw their consent to the continued use or disclosure of their Personal Information by closing their Offskip account. Please ensure you complete the account closure process which includes a confirmation email. Otherwise, your account may not be closed.

Email and communications consent

At any time, you can opt-out of commercial email communications from us by clicking on the unsubscribe link in such emails, or via the Email Preferences settings in your account. Certain non-commercial communications may still be sent to you that are required to provide you with our Services. For example, system notifications, major product changes, changes to our Terms of Use, or other news that we believe will materially affect how you interact with Offskip.

The only way to completely stop all emails from Offskip is to close your account as outlined above.

Limiting Collection (#4)

Offskip only collects the Personal Information necessary to provide the Services to you. The Services you use will determine which information Offskip collects. We’ll also provide you the option of sharing additional information to enhance your Offskip experience.

Offskip may also use third-party services to supplement or enrich our understanding of our customers. This includes cross-referencing information like a name, business name, email address or IP address in third-party databases, and using the information to improve our understanding of you.

Offskip is not intended for children and we do not knowingly or intentionally collect information about individuals under the age of thirteen (13).

Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention (#5)

We will use your Personal Information as described in this policy.

We will share your Personal Information with third parties only as described in this policy.

We will retain your information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this policy, unless a longer retention period is required by law or regulation. To be clear, that means we’ll retain your Personal Information while you have an active account, and afterward if we need to do so to meet our legal obligations. If you choose to close your Offskip account, we will destroy your Personal Information within 60 days unless we are otherwise obliged to keep it longer.

Accuracy (#6)

Offskip relies on you to provide us with information that is accurate and complete. We provide you the mechanisms and rely on you to keep your information up to date. You can request updates or corrections of any inaccuracies in your Personal Information at any time by contacting us at the contact information listed in the policy. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.

Safeguards (#7)

Offskip uses a combination of reasonable and appropriate safeguards designed to protect your information. These safeguards are administrative controls (things like policies, procedures, and training), technical controls (things like encryption, firewalls, and secure coding frameworks), and physical controls (secured hosting environments).

We ensure that any third party acting on our behalf maintains reasonable and appropriate safeguards in respect of your Personal Information. Additional information about our third parties’ privacy practices is available upon request.

If you have questions about security on our Site, you can contact us at security@offskip.com.

You are also responsible for helping to protect the security of your Personal Information. For instance, never give out your email account information or your password for the Services to third parties. Our team will never request your password or PIN, and we ask that you never post account or credit card numbers to our support channels.

Openness (#8)

Individual Access (#9)

You may access, update and correct inaccuracies in the Personal Information in our custody or control at any time, subject to limited exceptions prescribed law.
