SHHHHHHH… PRIVACY POLICY – King and Crown

HERE IS OUR PRIVACY POLICY AND THE SECRETS WE KEEP

We have been doing like this since the 3rd of March, 2020

This policy explains the what, when, and how we use your private information, and how King and Crown protects your data. If you see a capitalized word, it’s defined in our Terms of Use.

Changes To This Policy

We may update this Policy from time to time. If we do, we’ll let you know about any material changes, either by notifying you on the Site or by sending you an email. New versions of this Policy will never apply retroactively — we’ll tell you the exact date they go into effect. If you keep using King and Crown after a change, that means you accept this Policy.

Who We Are

King and Crown Pty. Ltd. (together with parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, representatives, consultants, employees, officers, and directors — collectively, “King and Crown,” “we,” or “us”) provides services that help people bring people, projects and money together so the Church can change the world together. Our main service is a funding platform for christian projects, christian organisations, and churches.  We also supply job boards for the same, and fund giving solutions for the church and for organisations.  From time to time we also facilitate outcomes for the aforementioned. We are a Private Company based in Sydney, Australia.

How This Policy Applies

This Policy describes the information we collect from you, how we use that information and our legal basis for doing so. It also covers whether and how that information may be shared and your rights and choices regarding the information you provide to us. If you see a capitalized word, it’s defined in our Terms of Use. We use cookies and similar technologies, as described in our Cookie Policy.

By using the Services offered by King and Crown, you’re acknowledging you have agreed to our Terms of Use and that you have read and understood this Privacy Policy and our Cookie Policy.

What We Collect and Receive

In order for you to create an account on King and Crown and use our Services, we need to collect and process certain information. Depending on your use of the Services, that may include:

  • Information you provide by completing forms on King and Crown — your name, email and postal addresses, telephone number, country of residence, login, and password details. We may ask for this information if you register as a user of the Services, subscribe to our newsletters, upload or submit content through King and Crown, or if you contact us;
  • Information you provide for identity verification purposes when launching a project, applying for a job or listing a job, including your legal name, business name and Tax ID for business entities, and date of birth. In some cases, our payment processor will request that you provide a secure upload of an identity document (such as your passport, drivers license or other government-issued ID) to King and Crown;
  • Details of any requests or transactions you make through the Services. King and Crown partners with other companies (such as Stripe) for payment processing, and the payment information you submit is collected and used by them in accordance with their privacy policies (for Stripe’s, click here). King and Crown doesn’t store your payment information apart from the last four digits of your credit card or bank account (as applicable), expiration date, and country, which we require for tax, government regulatory, and security purposes;
  • Information about your activity on and interaction with King and Crown, including use of our mobile apps (such as your IP address, the type of device or browser you use, and your actions on the Site);
  • Information about the ways people visit and interact with our Site, in the form of traffic analytics. You can opt out of being included in Google Analytics here. For more information about our use of data analytics to protect and improve our Services, see our Cookie Policy;
  • Communications you send to us (for example, when you ask for support, send us questions or comments, or report a problem);
  • Information that you submit on or to King and Crown in the form of comments, contributions to discussions, or messages to other users; and
  • The email address associated with your Facebook account, if you choose to sign up using your Facebook credentials. King and Crown will also request permission to access your name, profile picture, and friend list (these permissions are governed by Facebook’s privacy policies and can be managed through your Facebook privacy settings). We never post anything to your Facebook, Twitter, or other third-party accounts without your permission.

You may decline to provide us with your information. However, this will limit your ability to register for an account or use our Services. You may pledge to a project as a guest by providing only an email address. However, to adjust your pledge, save payment details for future pledges, apply for jobs, post jobs, give to your church or an organisation, make project comments and take most other actions on our Site, you will need to finish creating an account. You may review, change or remove your information through your account settings.

How We Use This Information

We use the information we collect for the following purposes:

  • To keep your account secure and protect our Services (including to verify the identities of creators and prevent fraud and abuse);
  • To enable us to provide you with our Services, and to improve and promote our Services;
  • To create and administer your account, contact you, and customize your experience on King and Crown (for example, to show you projects that we think may interest you based on your previous use, or jobs based on jobs you have previously applied for, or applicants based on jobs you have advertised); and
  • To track and analyze use of the Services so that we can improve how King and Crown is performing and provide users with the best experience possible.

European Union Users

Data protection law in Europe requires a “lawful basis” for collecting and retaining personal information from citizens or residents of the European Economic Area. Our lawful bases include:

  • Performing the contract we have with you: In certain circumstances, we need your personal data to comply with our contractual obligation to deliver the Services, enable creators to establish and display their projects, and enable backers to find and make pledges to them.  Further we need you personal to data to enable employers or their representatives to create job listings and display those listings, and enable candidates to apply for them.
  • Legal compliance: Sometimes the law says we need to collect and use your data. For example, tax laws require us to retain records of pledges and payments made through our Services.
  • Legitimate interests: This is a technical term in data protection law which essentially means we have a good and fair reason to use your data and we do so in ways which do not hurt your interests and rights. We sometimes require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way that might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and that does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.For example, we use identity, device, and location information to prevent fraud and abuse and to keep the Services secure. We may also send you promotional communications about our Services, subject to your right to control whether we do so.We analyze how users interact with our Site so we can understand better what elements of the design are working well and which are not working so well. This allows us to improve and develop the quality of the online experience we offer all our users.

How This Information Is Shared

Information that’s shared publicly

When you create an account, we create a basic profile page for you on King and Crown, containing your username, the date the account was created, and a list of projects you have backed or launched, jobs you have created or applied for, and public social profile. By default, your profile is public and you can choose to make it private in your account settings. Your username appears with the comments you post and messages you send on King and Crown and, if your profile is set to public, people can click your username to view it. If you make your profile public, others will be able to see the following things:

  • The account username you select, and the date the account was created;
  • Any information you choose to add to your profile (like a picture, bio, or your location);
  • Projects you’ve backed;
  • Projects you’ve created;
  • Job listings you’ve created;
  • Comments you’ve posted on King and Crown; and
  • If you have “Liked” a project update.

If you would like to have a public profile, but don’t want others to see your name or profile image on a project’s comments/donors tab, you may choose an account image or name that is not identifiable (e.g., JesusLovesMe33). You can modify or delete certain information associated with your account (such as your username, profile image, biography and location) from your account settings, and you can change your privacy settings if you want to make your profile private or adjust the default settings.

Creators are also asked to verify their identities before launching a project. Once this has been done, the creator’s Verified Name will be publicly displayed on their account profile and on any projects they launch.

Information that isn't shared publicly

The following data will not be publicly displayed or revealed to other users:

  • Any payment information you provide;
  • Your password details;
  • Your IP address;
  • Private profile information, in accordance with your preferences; and
  • Communications you send to us (for example, when you ask for support, send us questions or comments, or report a problem).

Information that’s shared with trusted third-party services

We may share your information with certain trusted third-party services to help us provide, improve, promote, or protect King and Crown’s Services (like when we partner with payment processors, or use services that help us manage our ads on other sites). When we share data with third-party services that support our delivery of the King and Crown Services, we require that they use your information only for the purposes we’ve authorized, and that they protect your personal information at least to the same standards we do. We may also share information that’s aggregated and anonymized in a way that it doesn’t directly identify you.

Information that’s shared with creators, collaborators and job owners

When you back a project, the project’s creator will know your username, and the amount you have pledged. Creators never receive backers’ credit card details or other payment information.

If you back a project or apply for a job, the creator will receive the email address associated with your King and Crown account, along with your application if you have applied for a job.

Creators (of projects/jobs) are required to keep backer information confidential, except as strictly necessary to communicate with backers directly. Creators should not ask for personal information that isn’t necessary to provide you updates on the project, and should never request sensitive personal information such as your Social Security number/Tax File Number or payment information. Contact us at [email protected] if you receive a request for information that seems inappropriate or excessive.

Collaborators are third parties that creators can appoint to help manage their project/job listing. These collaborators may be able to access the information available to creators (including backers’ names, email addresses, pledge amounts, reward selections, messages, and resume, cover letter, or CV), and are required to treat backers’ personal information with the same care and respect as creators are.

Creators (of projects and jobs) and their collaborators may also receive routine traffic analytics about their project pages.

Information that’s shared to protect King and Crown and comply with the law

We do reserve the right to disclose personal information when we believe that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with the law or law enforcement, to prevent fraud or abuse, or to protect King and Crowns legal rights, property, or the safety of King and Crown, its employees, users, or others.

Our Site may include links to other websites or services whose privacy practices may differ from King and Crown’s. When you use a link to an external site or service, the privacy policy and data processing disclosures for that site or service governs.

Retention

We will retain your information as long as your account is active, as necessary to provide you with the Services or as otherwise set forth in this Policy. We will also retain and use this information as necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements and protect King and Crown’s legal rights.

We also collect and maintain aggregated, anonymized or pseudonymized information which we may retain indefinitely to protect the safety and security of our Site, improve our Services or comply with legal obligations.

Data Transfers

Because King and Crown is an Australian-based company, your information will be collected and processed in Australia but will be stored on servers in the USA and in some cases and for some time in other regions. Australia has its own laws governing data protection and government access to information. The rules that protect your personal information under Australian law may be different than in your home country. If you choose to use the Services, you need to agree to our Terms of Use, which set out the contract between King and Crown and its users.

Your Rights

Users residing in certain countries, including the EU, are afforded certain rights regarding their personal information. Except where an exception or exemption applies, these rights include the ability to access, correct, and request deletion of your personal information. While these rights are not applicable globally, all King and Crown users can manage their personal information, as further described below, in their account settings.

You can request a downloadable copy of your personal data from King and Crown from your account settings page. To modify or delete the personal information you’ve provided to us, please log in and update your profile. You may also delete your account from your account settings page. We may retain certain information as required by law or as necessary for our legitimate business purposes.

Email and Mobile Notifications

We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. We try to keep emails to a minimum and give you the ability to opt in to any marketing communications we send.

We will send you email relating to your transactions on King and Crown. You may also elect to receive certain marketing email communications, in accordance with your preferences, and from which you may opt out at any time by adjusting your notification settings. When the King and Crown app is available and you download it, you will be able to manage the notifications you receive on your mobile device in your profile settings.

We’ll also send you service-related announcements when it’s necessary to do so.

Security

We take security seriously, and the security of your personal data is important to us. We follow industry-standard practices to protect the data we collect and maintain, including using Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt information as it travels over the internet. No method of transmission over the internet or electronic storage is completely secure, so King and Crown cannot guarantee its absolute security. Your account information is protected by a password, which you should choose carefully and keep secure. We encourage all users to enable two-factor authentication in account settings to further protect their account when it is available in June.

We have a Security Incident Response Team (SIRT) and protocol in place in the event of a data breach. We encourage the responsible disclosure of vulnerabilities of our Services by emailing [email protected], and we will invite valid disclosures to our bug bounty program.
