10. Integrated services

One of the special features of the Service is that it allows you to enable various online Third Party services, such as social media and social networking services like Facebook and LinkedIn (each, an “Integrated Service”), to integrate directly into your HUUB Community. By directly integrating these services, we make your use of HUUB, By CO+HOOTS richer and more personalized. To enable Integrated Services, we will ask you to authorize HUUB, By CO+HOOTS to access the Integrated Services (or vice versa). When you add an Integrated Service account to a HUUB Community (or vice versa), your log-in information, Personal Data, non-personal data, location information, your content, your HUUB Community name, your HUUB Community location, your HUUB Community affiliation, profile photo, Facebook Connect ID, Profile (if you are integrating your Facebook account) and other relevant personal information may be passed through to, or received from, the Integrated Service in connection with your use of the Service. We may import, use, disclose, and retain such data and information to, among other things, customize and improve the Service for you and others. Note that Integrated Services may also import, use, and retain this information. You may be able to control how certain information is shared with us in your privacy settings within the Integrated Services. However, please remember that the manner in which Integrated Services collect, use, store, and disclose your information is governed solely by the policies of the companies operating those Integrated Services, and we shall have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any Integrated Service that may be enabled within the Service.

If, and only if, you have elected to integrate your HUUB, By CO+HOOTS with an Integrated Service, we may share your information with Integrated Services. This may happen when you first register with HUUB, By CO+HOOTS, when you log into HUUB, By CO+HOOTS from time to time, or in emails or other communications we may send you consistent with this Privacy Policy. We may from time to time share your Personal Data and anonymous data, your location information, your HUUB Community Membership, your HUUB Community URL, your location, and your use of certain features on HUUB, By CO+HOOTS with Integrated Services to facilitate and enhance your use of the Integrated Services. Please keep in mind that services provided by Integrated Services are not provided by us and therefore your use of the Integrated Services will be governed by the Integrated Services’ Terms of Use and other policies, and that the collection, use, and disclosure of information provided by you or us to Integrated Services is not governed by this Privacy Policy.

11. Security of Your Personal Data

We use appropriate technical and organizational measures including encryption, aggregation, and pseudonymization to protect your Personal Data provided via the Service from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or use, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet, email, or other electronic transmission is ever 100% secure or error free, so we cannot guarantee that your Personal Data will never be accessed, used, or disclosed, so you should take special care in deciding what information you share on the Service.

“Phishing” is a scam designed to steal your Personal Data or Information. If you receive an e-mail that looks like it is from us asking you for information about you, please contact us.

13. Transferring your Personal Data to Other Countries

Our website and mobile applications are provided from within the United States and are subject to state and federal laws of the United States. If you are located outside the United States, your Personal Information is being transferred to, stored, used, and shared in the United States.

Following the invalidation of the EU-US Privacy Shield by the Court of Justice of the European Union on July 16, 2020 (known as the “Schrems II” decision) and of the Swiss-US Privacy Shield on September 8, 2020, Personal Data subject to the GDPR are no longer transferred by or to HUUB, By CO+HOOTS on the basis of the Privacy Shield but are instead subject to the EU Standard Contractual Clauses.  The Schrems II decision also placed additional compliance requirements on the use of EU Standard Contract Clauses (SCC) for transfer of EU/EEA Personal Data to the U.S. by companies subject to Section 702 of the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and/or Executive Order 12333 (E.O. 12333).  It is our good faith belief that the types of EU/EEA Personal Data we receive, collect, process, use and/or share in the U.S. are not of the types of data that would generally be subject to requests from U.S. government authorities pursuant to FISA Section 702 and/or E.O. 12333.  

As explained above in this Privacy Policy in Section 2(b), we sometimes share your Personal Information with Third Party service providers so they can perform services for us. If we share Personal Information we have received from EU/EEA/Swiss data subjects, with a Third Party, that Third Party’s access, use, and disclosure of your Personal Information will be subject to the Standard Contractual Clauses.  

While EU and U.S officials are working to resolve the issues which were the basis for the Schrems II decision invalidating the EU-U.S Privacy Shield framework, we are continuing to comply with the EU Privacy Shield Principles required by our Privacy Shield Certification(s). If you are located in the UK, European Union (EU), Switzerland or European Economic Area (EEA), and have a question or complaint regarding data collected in the UK, EU, EEA or Switzerland that was transferred to the U.S. under the Privacy Shield Frameworks, you should first direct your question or complaint to [email protected]. You can also write or call us at the following address: CO+HOOTS, LLC., 221 E. Indianola Ave, Phoenix AZ 85012, Phone: 602-688-2825.

HUUB, By CO+HOOTS Inc. continues to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the Privacy Shield Principles to BBB EU PRIVACY SHIELD, a non-profit alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States and operated by the Council of Better Business Bureaus.

If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not resolved your complaint, please visit https://www.bbb.org/EU-privacy-shield/for-eu-consumers for more information or to file a complaint. The services of the BBB EU Privacy Shield are provided free of charge to you.
