The Information we collect about you through the Platform includes both “non-personal” and “personal” Information. We may also obtain “sensitive” personal information about you through the Platform.
“Non-Personal Information” refers to information that may not by itself be reasonably associated with, linked to, or used to identify you. For example general, non user-specific Information regarding the operation of the Platform and the interactions taking place on the Platform, including the performance of the Platform and the areas of the Platform used and accessed.
“Personal Information” refers to information that may be reasonably associated with, linked to, or used to identify you or allow you to be personally identified or contacted. For example:
- Domain name and Internet Protocol (IP) address;
- E-mail address;
- Name, employer name, industry, education and job description;
- Username and password information;
- Age, gender, and address;
- User-specific information on areas of the Platform accessed and used; and
- Information in communications with other users through the Platform.
“Sensitive Personal Information” refers to Personal Information regarding more sensitive areas such as medical or health conditions, treatment or history, race or ethnic origin, political affiliations or opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or other sensitive topics.
Sources of Information.
We may collect Information about you through the Platform from a variety of sources, for example:
Directly from You. We may collect Information about you directly from you when you voluntarily provide it to us through the Platform. For example, through registrations, comments, messages, postings, communicating with other users or other communications through the Platform. We may use any Information you provide to us through the Platform in accordance with this Policy.
From Other Users. We may collect Information about you from other users of the Platform when they provide Information through the Platform. For example, when they interact with you through the Platform or store information about you on the Platform. We may use any Information other users provide to us through the Platform in accordance with this Policy.
From Third Parties. We may also obtain Information about you from third parties who have a right to provide us with that Information. For example, if you register for the Platform through a third party, we may receive Information about you from that third party. We may also obtain Information about you from third parties that have obtained information about you and have the right to provide that Information to businesses such as ours. We may use any Information about you we receive from a third party in accordance with the terms we establish with that third party. Only if we combine that Information with information collected through the Platform will we be required to use that information in accordance with this Policy.
Through the Operation of the Platform. We may collect Information about you automatically when you interact with the Platform. For example, Better Weekdays and our third party service providers may use “cookies,” “OAuth tokens,” and other automated tracking technology to monitor and collect Information regarding your interaction with the Platform. “Cookies” are commonly used small files that are stored on your computer or mobile device to help identify you as a unique user of the Platform. “OAuth tokens” provide secure access to third party web sites.
The computers we use to provide the Platform may also automatically record Information about you. For example, our web servers may record the Information you enter on the Platform, the areas of the Platform you visit, the services you use through the Platform, your communication with other users on the Platform, your IP address, or cookies that are set on your browser.
We may use any Information we collect from you automatically through the Platform in accordance with this Policy.
How We Use Information.
Non-Personal Information. We may use and share the Non-Personal Information we collect through your interaction with the Platform for any lawful business purpose without any duty or obligation of accounting or otherwise to you, provided that the Information remains Non-Personal Information. This will include, by way of example, developing products, services, and other offerings based on the Non-Personal Information and providing those offerings to other users and third parties.
Personal Information. We may use the Personal Information we collect about you through the Platform for a variety of purposes, for example:
- Operating the Platform and providing services through the Platform;
- Fulfilling your requests for services through the Platform;
- Customizing and improving the Platform;
- Providing maintenance, support, and customer service for the Platform;
- Providing advertising through the Platform;
- Providing notifications and announcements relating to Better Weekdays or the Platform
- Providing offers for products, services, or other offerings that we feel may be of interest to you;
- Contacting you for direct marketing purposes;
- Developing additional products and services; and
- Research and analysis.
We may combine and enhance the Personal Information we collect about you through the Platform with Non-Personal Information and information we receive from third parties, provided that we will treat the combined information as Personal Information and use it in accordance with this Policy.
We may also use the Personal Information we collect about you through the Platform to generate Non-Personal Information. When we do so, we will take reasonable measures to ensure that the Non-Personal Information is no longer personally identifiable and may not later be reasonably associated with, linked to, or used to identify you. This will include, by way of example, storing the Non-Personal Information separately from any Personal Information. Once we generate any Non-Personal Information from any Personal Information, we will not later attempt to again make that information personally identifiable. However, we may combine and enhance that Non-Personal Information with other Non-Personal Information we receive or obtain third parties.
You should not provide any personal information through the platform unless you agree to the use of that information in accordance with this Policy.
Sensitive Personal Information. Better Weekdays does not knowingly solicit any Sensitive Personal Information through the Platform. You may, however, choose to exchange Sensitive Personal Information with other users through the Platform. If you do so, Better Weekdays may receive your Sensitive Personal Information through the operation of the Platform. For example, when you send a message including Sensitive Personal Information to another user through the Platform or save Sensitive Personal Information on the Platform.
Better Weekdays will use any Sensitive Personal Information about you received through the operation of the Platform in accordance with this Policy to enable the exchange of that Information as directed by you and those other users through the Platform. We are not responsible for monitoring the Sensitive Personal Information you exchange through the Platform or for the use of that Information by other users receiving that Information.
If you have any questions regarding how your Sensitive Personal Information may be treated by other users of the Platform, please contact those users before providing them with your Sensitive Personal Information.

Choice and Opt-out.
We provide you with a choice whether to receive certain messages through the Platform and the opportunity to “opt-out” of having your Personal Information shared for certain purposes permitted by this Policy.
If you no longer wish to receive certain messages from Better Weekdays or to have your Personal Information shared in the manner permitted by this Policy, you may seek to opt-out of receiving those messages or having your Personal Information shared in that manner. In some cases, opting out of receiving messages or having your Personal Information shared will not affect your ability to use the Platform. However, some messages are necessary to the operation of the Platform. Likewise, some sharing of Personal Information is necessary to provide the Platform. If you wish to opt-out of receiving these messages or of sharing your Personal Information in this manner, Better Weekdays may be required to limit or cancel your access to the Platform.
All opt-out requests can be made as indicated through the Platform or contacting Better Weekdays as described above. Note that it may take up to 10 days to remove contact information from our lists, so messages from us may continue for a time after a removal request is made.
Better Weekdays is committed to protect and secure your Personal Information. Despite our commitment, no security system can be 100% effective and we cannot guarantee that your Information will be secure in all situations. We will nonetheless take all reasonable and appropriate steps to insure the safety and security of your Personal Information. This includes using at least industry standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse, and unintended alteration of the Personal Information under our control. For example, our policy is that only those individuals who need your Personal Information to perform a specific job for us are granted access to that Personal Information. Likewise, all employees and contractors are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment.
Certain of the Sensitive Personal Information and other Personal Information you share with other users through the Platform may be subject to various applicable laws and regulations. However, Better Weekdays does not have access to information that would confirm when You may share Information through the Platform that is subject to any specific law or regulation. While the Platform includes safeguards and controls to maintain the privacy and security of your Information as described in this Policy, the Platform is not specifically designed to facilitate compliance with any specific law or regulation. Use of the Platform in compliance with any law or regulation applicable to the Information you share through the Platform is your responsibility. If you have any questions whether sharing Information through the Platform will enable you to comply with the laws or regulations applicable to you or to any Information you share through the Platform, please contact Better Weekdays as described above.
