We love innovation, and aren’t into knowing everything about you and doing clever stuff with your data.
We ask for and use only the minimum amount of data from you needed to give you a great innovation experience. That means we ask for your email address (which we use as your Sign In ID), and if you purchase a subscription, your credit card details (but we don’t store those, we simply pass them securely to our payment partner Stripe).
Feel free to read on, but we hope you understand that we’re only interested in you building great ideas and bringing them to market, and we truly have no interest in your data!
Your privacy is important to us. It is Ingrained Limited’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you across our website, https://www.startupsherpas.org, and other sites we own and operate.
We only ask for personal information when we truly need it to provide a service to you. We collect it by fair and lawful means, with your knowledge and consent. We also let you know why we’re collecting it and how it will be used.
We only collect and store your first and last name, and email address (which is used as your Sign In ID). Your first and last name and email address are used to subscribe you to both Mailchimp and Slack – we use these to communicate with you on the programme. If you buy a subscription to startupsherpas.org, then you will be asked for your credit card details, which we communicate to Stripe (our payment gateway) using secure methods. We do not store or process any credit card details at startupsherpas.org.
We only retain collected information for as long as necessary to provide you with your requested service. What data we store, we’ll protect within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
We don’t share any personally identifying information publicly or with third-parties, except when required to by law.
Our website may link to external sites that are not operated by us. Please be aware that we have no control over the content and practices of these sites, and cannot accept responsibility or liability for their respective privacy policies.
You are free to refuse our request for your personal information, with the understanding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired services.
Your continued use of our website will be regarded as acceptance of our practices around privacy and personal information. If you have any questions about how we handle user data and personal information, feel free to contact us.
This policy is effective as of 14 August 2019.
