What information do we collect from you and why?
We need to collect some personal information from you to allow you benefiting from our rewarding scheme. You provide this information when you submit any idea. The basic details we require are your name and email address. Other info such as full address or bank account will be required only if your idea is rewarded. Being this the case, you can choose the payment method: if you wish to have a bank transfer, your account details will be required and shared with our bank, if you prefer to receive a cheque you will need to provide us your full address details. Additional information such as residence, age group, gender or occupation might be used to build aggregate statistic analysis about the users of our site; this information will not be identifiable with you.
We do not share your personal details with any of our partners. When we present ideas to potential Sponsors they just see a reference associated to each idea; we do not provide your name or email address. If your idea becomes rewarded we might publish it in our site, but your name will be associated to the idea only if you wish so.
It is extremely important for us to protect your data and we use the latest technology to do so. We employ physical and electronic measures designed to safeguard your information from unauthorized access.
