2. What We Do
The Service allows users to create audio-visual content (“Artifacts”). We connect users with third party interviewers (“Interviewers”) and editors (“Editors”) to help put together Artifacts. Users can also create their own Artifacts with the Service.
3. Types of User Information We Collect
Directly Collected Information
We directly collect User Information from a variety of Service users. For example:
• If you purchase an Artifact, we will collect, without limitation, you name, email, payment information (to process the purchase of the Artifact), and details to help Interviewer in creating your Artifact.
• If you participate in an Artifact (meaning you are interviewed for an Artifact or facilitate your own Artifact interview), we will collect your name, email, background information and, of course, any information you provide during the audio recording of your interview.
• Users with whom an Artifact is shared may be required to provide their name and email to listen to, or contribute content (such as comments, photos, etc.) to, an Artifact.
• If you are an Interviewer or Editor, we will collect your name, email, phone number, address and other information necessary for us to onboard you into our system, facilitate your work within our system, and help process payments (such as for generation W9s). We will also collect any content you provide for an Artifact, or load into our system with respect to Artifacts (such as notes).
The information we collect will be made apparent at the time of collection (such as in online questionnaires and in questions from Interviewers).
The foregoing information will be used and shared as set forth below.
