Last Updated: May 19, 2021

Kolektive and its partners (collectively, “Kolektive,” “we,” or “us”) understand the importance of privacy.  This Privacy Policy (this “Policy”) explains how Kolektive collects, stores, uses, and shares personal information collected, stored, or processed by us through Kolektive’s Websites, which includes services related to our Events, Websites, Channels, and Blog (collectively, the “Platform”).  In this Policy, “personal information”  identifies or could be used to identify an individual.

The Kolektive is a media and events company used by the fashion industry businesses to connect to end-users and professionals (the “Customers”) to get divulged, offer inspiration, and educate the public through events and other content. Collectively these are called “Platform Users”.

1.  Scope

This Policy applies to the personal information that Kolektive’s Customers submit to us via the Platform, as well as the personal information we collect, access, store, use, or otherwise process (collectively, “process”) via the Platform on behalf of Customers. This collection of data includes the Registrant Information, Other Information, and Communications (each defined below), as well as other personal information we process from end-users of the Platform (together the “Platform Data”). 

Controller and Responsible Entity

Aggregate and De-Identified Information

KOLEKTIVE may process (i.e., collect, use, and disclose) aggregate de-identified information and other information that is not personally identifiable for research, analytics, and other purposes provided such information does not identify and could not reasonably be used to identify a particular Business Customer or End User.

As noted above, KOLEKTIVE is a data processor of the personal information collected via the Platform. Business Customers are data controllers concerning Platform User personal information; this Policy does not apply to the processing (including collection, use, and sharing) of Platform User personal information by Business Customers.

Business Customers may use the personal information they collect via the Platform for additional purposes, such as to deliver targeted content within the Platform, to contact End Users about their use of the Platform, for marketing and promotional purposes, and other purposes; you should review their privacy policies for more information about how they collect, use and share the personal information collected via the Platform.

4.  Sharing of Information

As noted, Platform User information, including End User personal information, is shared with the Business Customer upon whose behalf the information was collected or for which the Platform is being operated; this Policy does not apply to the processing (including collection, use, and sharing) of Platform User personal information by Business Customers, and we are not responsible for such processing. 

KOLEKTIVE will not share personal information about Platform Users with third parties except to provide the products or services you have requested, with consent, or under the following circumstances:

·        As explained above, we will make personal information available to the Business Customer on whose personal information was collected.

·        We may provide personal information to our agents, service providers, contractors, and others acting on our behalf. These parties do not have any independent right to use or share this information.

·        We may disclose the information we collect from you to KOLEKTIVE affiliates and subsidiaries; however, if we do so, their use and disclosure of your information will be subject to this Policy.

Third parties who process personal information on our behalf must agree to use such personal information only for the purpose for which we provide it, and they must contractually agree to provide adequate protection for personal data; KOLEKTIVE will continue to be liable for any onward transfers of personal information to such third parties. 

We may also disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, as well as where is necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable government request, to enforce our User Agreement and investigate violations thereof, to prevent, detect and address fraud, security, or technical issues, or to protect against harm to the rights and property of KOLEKTIVE.

5. Accessing, Amending, and Limiting Use of Your Personal Information

Individuals have the right to access the personal information that is maintained about them, and in some cases, to limit the use and disclosure of such information.  Registered Platform Users may log into their accounts to view and amend certain personal information in their profile.  EU and Swiss End Users who would like to request access to, to limit the use of, or to limit disclosure of their personal information collected via the Platform by a Business Customer should contact that Business Customer directly; EU and Swiss End Users may also make such requests by contacting us at cs@scalepv.com and providing the name of the Business Customer. We will refer such requests to that Business Customer and support them as needed in responding to your request.

6. Security

To secure your personal information, access to your data is password-protected, and sensitive information is protected by encryption when exchanged between your Web browser and our Web site. It is your responsibility to keep your password confidential and not to share this information with anyone. While we will implement the security measures detailed above, the transmission of information via the internet is not entirely secure. Therefore, transmission via the internet is at your own risk.

7. Complaints and Disputes

Individual Platform Users who have any questions, complaints, or disputes regarding this Policy or how KOLEKTIVE handles or protects personal information may contact us at cs@scalepv.com.  We will promptly investigate and attempt to resolve any complaints and disputes and respond within 45 days of receiving any such complaint.

For EU and Swiss Platform Users whose complaint cannot be resolved through this process, KOLEKTIVE agrees to participate in a dispute resolution process administered by JAMS.   For information about how to initiate a Privacy Shield claim with JAMS, go here.  If neither KOLEKTIVE nor JAMS resolves your complaint, you may be able to engage in binding arbitration through a Privacy Shield arbitration panel (for more information, go here).
