This policy applies to the site/service/forum ("platform") owned and operated by us, Founderhood by GROUPNOW SINGLEPERSON PC.
Under GDPR, there is a distinction between a “controller” and “processor” of personal data. Depending on the situation and the type of data involved, Founderhood may act as a data controller or a data processor.
Where you are using our platform and making decisions about the personal data that is being processed on our platform, you are acting as a data controller and Founderhood is acting as data processor.
In other cases, Founderhood will be the controller of some personal data (such as contact information for marketing purposes, or when monitoring usage information on our platform).
The lawful bases under which Founderhood collects personal data under the GDPR are contractual necessity, legitimate interests and consent, as described in this policy.
This policy explains what information we collect when you access our platform, how the information is used, and how you can control the processing, correction and/or deletion of your information.
Founderhood collects personal data about you when you provide it directly to us, or when personal data about you is automatically collected in connection with your use of our platform. We collect the following personal data from you in connection with the platform:
We collect personal data when a user (i) creates an account (a “User Account”); (ii) logs into the platform; (iii) interacts with the platform; (iv) uploads or generates User Content; (v) communicates with us; and (vi) responds to a communication or interaction from us. Some of the methods and tools we use to collect personal data are:
Unique Identifiers: We use unique identifiers such as cookies, e-mail or your pseudonymised customer ID to track individual usage behavior on our platform, such as the length of time spent on a particular page and the pages viewed during a particular log-in period.

Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Tracking Tools: We and our third party service providers collect information about you, your device, and your use of the platform through cookies, clear gifs (a.k.a. web beacons/web bugs) ("Web Beacons"), and other tracking tools and technological methods (collectively, "Tracking Tools").

We may collect. use and share statistical data that is derived from personal data, but this is not considered personal data in law as it does not directly or indirectly reveal the identity of an individual.

If an individual applies for a role with us at Founderhood, we will use the personal information you provide us, during the recruitment process.

No fee usually required
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
What we may need from you
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
Time limit to respond
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within two months. Occasionally it may take us longer than two months if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
Where we transfer personal data outside of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint, if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you, or as required or permitted by applicable law.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
Disclosure to comply with the law
We may disclose personal data or other information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with applicable laws or to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement or other governmental agencies.
We also reserve the right to disclose personal data or other information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to (i) take precautions against liability, (ii) protect ourselves or others from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses or activity, (iii) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, (iv) protect the security or integrity of the services and any facilities or equipment used to make the service available, or (v) protect our property or other legal rights, enforce our contracts, or protect the rights, property, or safety of others.
