Data & Privacy Summary
Cobrainer’s privacy-related goal is to maintain your trust and confidence when we handle information through clear communication, meaningful choice, responsible information curation and stewardship.
How do We get Your Information?
When you use our service, we use information about you and other users. This enables Cobrainer to help connect teams, search for expertise relevant to you and match projects to the right team members. We receive that information about you in two ways when you use our services:
1. Information You Give Us
When you sign up to Cobrainer we will ask you to provide keywords that describe your expertise as well as account related information such as an email address and a password. All additional information we ask for is optional but it will help Cobrainer give you even better matching and search results. Using Cobrainer you will create, publish and share content such as a personal profile and project profiles. Content related information includes expertise keywords, descriptions, location, connected institutions and various media formats.
2. Information collected when you use the Cobrainer Services
When you use Cobrainer we will collect web log info, cookies, device and browser identifiers so that we can be sure it is you who is using your account and to give you the best user experience for our services.
Cobrainer also collects information on what type of projects you created, joined, left or projects you invited other Cobrainer users to. We also collect information on your interaction with projects, such as comments, posts and changes in membership role. Cobrainer uses this type of information specifically to update its expertise database – ultimately every action you perform on Cobrainer will update our relationship between expertise in our database.
