Privacy Policy

Taking Monday is public and posts ("Mondays") are immediately viewable and searchable by anyone around the world. You can use Taking Monday under a pseudonym if you prefer not to use your name.

When you use Taking Monday, even if you’re just looking at Mondays, we receive some personal information from you like the type of device you’re using, location and your IP address. You can choose to share additional information with us like your email address, phone number, contacts, social media information, and a public profile. We use this information for things like keeping your account secure and showing you more relevant Mondays, people to follow, events, and ads.

In addition to information you share with us, we use your Mondays, content you’ve read, who you said Good Job to, or engaged with otherwise, and other information to determine what topics you’re interested in, and demographics to show you more relevant content. 

If an IP address or device is associated with suspicious activities that could harm our technology, we reserve the right to block those IPs and devices without explanation. You can also delete your account data. We automatically gather, or aggregate, certain usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to our websites, platforms or systems, length of stay, and other anonymous data. This data helps us determine usage levels on different parts of our websites, platforms or systems, and other useful statistics. We may use such information to analyze websites, platform or system usage for research, internal record keeping, security and service improvement purposes. In addition, we may aggregate such data and disclose it in a non-personally identifiable manner to outside organizations.

In general, a "cookie" is a small piece of text data stored on a user's computer by a website, in order to give that computer a unique identity to the website while performing certain processes, such as filling an online shopping cart and checking out, or calculating the number of unique visitors at a given time. Cookies may contain Personally Identifiable Information (PII), like email addresses, usernames, or passwords, or completely anonymous information, like a randomly generated number. They may be deleted once a user leaves our technology; or they may remain, so that our technology "remembers" the user or visitor when he or she next visits. Our technology may use cookies. 

We may be required to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances. Such circumstances include (and you hereby authorize us to) disclosure of any information about you that we possess to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe is necessary or appropriate. This may be in connection with the investigation of a crime, mandatory reporting laws, fraud, intellectual property infringement, or other activity that is illegal, or may expose us, or you, to liability. 

We may use third party service providers to facilitate our services and technology, including companies and individuals who perform functions on our behalf, such as website hosting, data analysis, and providing customer service. Third parties may collect and store your data even after we delete your data from our interface. Taking Monday stores all information on third party technology. We may provide your PII to such parties.

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"), which uses cookies and tracking code to help analyze how visitors use our websites, platforms or systems. The information collected (not limited to what browser and operating system you are using, your IP address, the pages on our websites, platforms or systems that you visit, your number of page views, and the time you spend on our websites, platforms or systems) is transmitted to and stored by Google. Google uses this information for many purposes, not limited to evaluating visitors' use of our technology in an aggregate manner, compiling reports on technology activity for technology operators and providing other services relating to technology activity and Internet usage. Google may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or to third parties that process information on Google's behalf. You can read Google's privacy policy at http://www.google.com/intl/en/privacy.html

Taking Monday employs a variety of security measures and techniques to try to protect from unauthorized access, both online and offline. You should be aware, however, that "perfect security" does not exist anywhere. Although we believe we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that your PII or communications with our technology and services will never be disclosed in a manner inconsistent with this section, and make no representations or warranties regarding the sufficiency of our security measures.

Always be careful and responsible regarding your PII. We are not responsible for, and cannot control, the use by others of any information which you provide or divulge to others, purposefully or inadvertently, including your e-mail address and password for our technology. While we may list and/or link to third-party technology, including non-profit and for-profit programs and other services, we do not endorse, support, represent or guarantee the completeness, truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any content or communications posted on ours or their technology or endorse any opinions expressed via reviews on our technology. We do not monitor or have any control over, and make no claim or representation regarding, third-party technology. 

You understand that by using our technology and services, you may be exposed to content that might be offensive, harmful, inaccurate or otherwise inappropriate, or in some cases, postings that have been mislabeled or are otherwise deceptive. You acknowledge sole responsibility for and assume all risk arising from your use of any such services and technology.

By sending us your data, or making posts, you consent to the data and posts being hidden, transferred, stored, deleted, re-used, and more. You agree our team may make adjustments and changes to your posts, at or sole discretion. For example, if a post overlays another post because the GPS coordinates are exactly the same, making it impossible to click on while viewing the map, we may adjust the GPS coordinates slightly so both posts are distinguishable and clickable. We may use algorithms, or manual actions to ensure the posting and viewing experiences are optimized.

 

If you access our technology from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk. Those who access our websites, platforms or systems from outside the United States do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, rules and regulations.

We may share aggregate information (e.g., patterns and trends of topics discussed) with researchers and the public.

​You agree that your use of our services and technology and any disputes relating thereto shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the Delaware. Any dispute relating to this Agreement shall be resolved solely in the courts located in the Delaware. You agree to waive trial by jury in any such action.

If you have questions about this policy, want us to delete your data, want to understand more about how we collect or process your personal data, or anything else related to our privacy practices, we want to hear from you. You can contact us at any time at support@takingmonday.com.
