Our Registered Members engage with their Preciate network by giving recognitions, requesting validations of a recognition they have given to another individual, “liking” a recognition or validation, adding a sticker to a recognition or validation, viewing the recognitions and validations they have participated in and those of their contacts or members of their company. Non-registered Members and Registered Members may interact with its Services by receiving a recognition, responding to a validation request or by viewing achievement records. All recognitions and validations are public, however, specific “free text” comments from a recognizer or validator may be made private if the recipient chooses to make them so. Preciate stores both the public and private text provided by validators and recognizers.
To become a Registered Member you need to provide only your name, US-based mobile number, and a password. However, profile information, such as the answering of questions anywhere within the app, providing your company name, providing your email address and uploading of a photograph or Avatar enhances your ability to leverage the greatest value from the platform.
Recognizing Others, Validating Others’ Recognition
Preciate collects data from you when you give recognitions, thank others for recognizing you, respond to validation requests or upload contacts from your mobile phone. While all recognitions are public, and viewable by both Registered Members and Non-registered Members, the optional, custom text written by a recognizer or validator may be made private if the recipient chooses to make it so. That said, Preciate will retain all custom text. Additionally, information like your phone number and email address are kept private, as are the phone numbers and email addresses collected to send your recognitions or validation requests.
Others Provide Your Information
Preciate receives information when others recognize you, ask you to validate another person’s recognition, import your information from their mobile phones’ contacts, or provide information regarding their relationship to you.
Participation and Feedback
We track participation in our Services as well as feedback we receive through our websites and within the Preciate app. This is done to help resolve issues and ensure the highest performance of our Services as well as to determine ways to enhance both your privacy and your experience. We track a variety of items, including, but not limited to, whether you have push notifications enabled, which screens you visit most often, how frequently you send and receive recognitions and validations and whether you thank people for recognizing you through the app. We use this information in aggregate and may share it with others to gain better understanding of our industry. We also track how you may have come to download the app and start using it to determine the efficacy of our marketing efforts.
Building Deeper Connections
Preciate is intended to build a network of individuals who are dedicated to recognizing the value of those around them. When you become a Registered Member, other Registered Members will be able to recognize you or request that you validate the recognition they are giving to someone else. Therefore, Preciate Services allow you to strengthen your relationships by helping others build a portable record of achievements and having others build one for you in return. The resulting data (or record) will be made available to those who wish to query it. We will use data about you, such as your name, the individuals you have recognized or validated, and the company where you work or school you attend or previously attended to help others find your portable record of achievements.
It is entirely your choice whether to send recognitions, validations or an invitation to join the Preciate network. When you do, your recognition, validation or invitation will include your name and photo or Avatar (if you have provided a photo or Avatar in your profile.)
It is also entirely your choice whether to make private the free text others have written about you just as it is entirely up to recipients whether to make the free text you have written about their achievements private.
Security is of paramount importance to Preciate and we use a variety of tools to protect your data, however, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you send us or that others send us about you.
Preciate retains your personal data while you are a Registered Member in order to provide its Services. In some instances you may edit or delete your data yourself, where you cannot, however, you may request to have your data edited, removed or deleted by contacting email@example.com. In the interest of clarity, information you write about others and send in recognitions and validations within the app is not considered your personal information. If you would like to restrict the use of your personal data beyond what is within the confines of this agreement, we will make efforts to do so, but may be forced to ask you to close your account to ensure your comfort. You have the right to request the data we have on you at any time. All requests are considered within applicable governing law.
When you ask to close your Preciate account, your personal data will cease to be viewable through our Services within 3-5 business days. Your account information will be deleted within approximately 60 days of closure except where data retention is required for legal, compliance, security or audit purposes and we will retain de-personalized information, as allowable by law, after your account is closed. Information you write about others in the context of giving validations and recognitions is not considered your personal information and will remain associated with the person’s record who received the recognition or validation. Additionally, information written about you on another individual’s recognition or validation will also remain in the system and others may be able to view your profile until they completely close the app and reopen it. Finally, we do not have the ability to control information that may have been copied by others from the system before you terminated your account.
Preciate leverages the expertise of others to provide various services within its app and on its websites. These organizations help us track analytics, provide deep links, advise on marketing and communicate more effectively with both Registered Members and Non-registered members. These organizations may have access to your information in order to fulfill the duties for which they are engaged and they are bound by the same obligations as Preciate to protect your information.
It is possible that we will be required by law to disclose information about you if there is reasonable belief that such disclosure is necessary to protect you, others, Preciate or its personnel. Preciate will attempt, in good faith, to contact you through the Service, Email or SMS text if such an incident arises unless such notification is prohibited by law or by timing. All requests for information will be scrutinized but Preciate does not guarantee it will dispute every claim.
If you have questions regarding this Policy, please contact Preciate online at firstname.lastname@example.org.
