WHY WE COLLECT YOUR INFORMATION (PURPOSES)

This section explains why we collect your information and what we need it for (purposes). This is set out below, by reference to what the information is required for

We collect and process your personal information in order to offer the Network, and to offer you our Products and Services

If you decline to provide us with personal information when we ask you, you may not be able to access all or some of our services and you may not be able to use the Network or certain Products and Services. For example, if you do not provide us with your email address or other information required for account registration, we will not be able to register you for certain account services

 

Account registration information

We need to collect your personal information for account registration purposes. Although the Network provides for anonymous and pseudonymous participation, in some instances in order to use certain Products or Services, we require account registration. This requires a name associated with your account, an email address at which we can contact you, and in some cases, additional information including, a contact address, a billing address, and a password to help secure your personal information

 

Profile information

When completing a public “profile”, whether it is for use with the Network or our Products and Services, we may require you to share certain personally identifying information in required and optional profile fields

 

Other profile information may also be publicly displayed if you choose to complete certain elective components of the Account Registration options including, e.g., your Developer Story, display picture, affiliated role and company, your location and your preferred technologies (javascript, swift, sql-server, etc.), and some information is publicly displayed and required, such as how long you have been a member

Similarly, you may elect to share additional information that is not required but this will be displayed publicly at your election

Information we use to identify and authenticate you. We need this information to be able to recognize you, for example, when you access your accounts. It also helps us to protect your details and keep them secure

Marketing and sales information, e.g. details of the services you receive and your preferences; information about your device or the software you use, e.g. its IP address, technical specification and uniquely identifying data; cookies and similar technologies we use to recognize you, remember your preferences and tailor the content we provide to you. Our cookie policy contains more details about how we use cookies

 

Device and browser information received automatically

When you visit our website or use our Apps, Golibrary automatically receives and records information from your browser or mobile device, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address or unique device identifier. Cookies and data about which pages you visit on our Network allow us to operate and optimize the Products and Services we provide to you. This information is stored in secure logs and is collected automatically

We may combine this browser information with other information we collect about you. This information is used to keep the Products and Services secure, to analyze and understand how our Products and Services are used, optimize such usage, provide advertising across the Network as well as certain Products and Services to personalize your experience

 

Location information

When you visit our website and use the Golibrary, and certain of our Products and Services, we collect location information about you including your IP address, your location, browser information, and how you came to the Golibrary Network. This is the case for individuals who have registered for an account, and non-members who engage with the Golibrary Network by visiting our website(s) but who have not completed an account registration

This information is collected for various purposes, including advertising, analytics and to serve content as it relates to certain Products or Services, as well as to provide you with localized content, recommendations, and marketing. You may revoke our permission to collect some of this data, including your location and browser information through your Account Settings, but this may limit functionality in some cases. Certain location information we collect is required for security and site functionality. We share this information with certain third-parties in order to provide you with our Products and Services

 

WHO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH

We may share personal information with third parties who provide services to Golibrary, such as payment processors, email delivery services, software providers, advertising providers and when we enter into product integrations with Software providers. Additionally, to improve user experience, we offer single sign-on solutions for account login and these third parties (including Facebook and Google) may receive information from these services when you elect to use them. When Golibrary shares your personal information and other collected information with third party service providers, we require that they use your information only for the purpose of providing services to us and consistent with this privacy policy

 

Advertising and marketing partners

When you register for an account, and when you interact with Golibrary, e.g., when you use the Public Network, we and authorized third parties place cookies on you and your account activity as described in more detail within our cookie policy. We use this information to serve you certain advertising content. 

 

Analytics information

Golibrary uses data analytics to ensure site functionality and to optimize our Product and Service offerings to you. We use web browser and mobile analytics to allow us to understand Network and Apps functionality. In doing so, we record information including, for example how often you visit the website, how often you contribute content, Network and Apps performance data, errors and debugging information, and the type of activity you engage in while on the Network or in your use of our Products and Services. We may on occasion share this information with third parties for research or product and services optimization

 

Legal basis for processing your information

We will only use your information where we have a legal basis for using it, for example, where we have your consent, or where we need to carry out processing to provide you with a service you have requested. This section describes the legal bases we rely on for processing your information, including when we share it with third parties

When you access the Golibrary Network and use the Products and Services we offer, we collect, display, store, share, transmit, and process your information in the manner described in this policy

 

In order to carry out these activities, Golibrary may rely on the following legal bases in order to process your personal data:

  • Where you have given us consent to process the information, which you can withdraw at any time.
  • Where the processing is necessary:
    • to carry out the contractual obligations in the Terms of Service or to provide the Products and Services you have requested
    • to comply with a legal obligation or to defend legal claims
    • to protect the public interest or vital interest of others
  • Where it is in our legitimate interests, or that of a third party to carry out the processing.

 

Whenever we rely on legitimate interests for processing, we ensure that we consider and balance our interests against the individual’s interests before processing. We do not use your personal data on the basis of legitimate interest for activities where individuals’ interests override our interests

Where we process your information on the basis of legitimate interests, we do so in order to:

 

Secure your personal data and information

Golibrary is committed to the safety and security of your personal data and the information that you share with us and with the public. We treat your personal data and safety from harassment as top organizational priorities. At Golibrary we consider it necessary to pursue these legitimate interests in order to keep our community, you and your information safe from spam, harassment, intellectual property infringement, identity theft, and the scraping and unlawful collection of your information

 

Provide and optimize products and services

We use your information to provide and improve our Products and Services, for identification, verification, to provide support, for online and offline marketing including through third party tools such as Google Analytics, and for general research and analytics reporting. In doing so, we may learn which of our Products and Services you are using most, what you’re interested in, and to better enable you to use and access our Products and Services. As a core part of our business, Golibrary has a legitimate interest in enabling and customizing your experience of our Product and Services offerings

 

Comply with regulatory and legal obligations

Golibrary has a legitimate interest in complying with certain legal obligations and interests which, from time to time, may require the disclosure of your personal information. Golibrary will not disclose your personal information to legal authorities except where such disclosure is by lawful request, including to meet legitimate national security or law enforcement demands (including a subpoena, court order, or other lawful legal demand by a legal authority with lawful jurisdiction). In some cases, we may also release your personal information to defend our legitimate legal interests

 

Marketing and product communications

Golibrary will not sell your personal information to enhance our marketing opportunities or profitability (except as may relate to a corporate event such as a sale or merger), and as we are committed to preventing spam, our direct marketing efforts are limited in scope and frequency. We engage in such activities as a legitimate business interest in order to promote key Products and Service offerings and provide you with every opportunity to unsubscribe from such communications or to further limit their scope and frequency. In short, while we want to communicate some key commercial communications with you and have determined it to be a legitimate interest for us to be able to do so, you have the final say in whether or not you would like to receive such commercial communications from us. You can review or change your permissions in your Profile Settings

 

YOUR CHOICE AND CONTROL OF THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT ON YOU

Privacy is a guiding principle of all Golibrary Products and Services and we value your privacy. Additionally, much of the data we collect is voluntary and your choice entirely to provide us or not. You may also remove certain optional information that you no longer wish to be publicly displayed, such as your photo, or job history. And of course, should you wish, you may also request the permanent deletion of your account, in which case all personal information collected on you will be removed from our servers and encrypted (except, in some cases your IP address required for security purposes, site maintenance, and spam protection)
