Protection of Personally Identifiable Information
Swoop is not in the business of selling or renting PII gathered on our website or in the course of client work to third parties. Swoop shares information with third parties, such as its clients, only as described in this policy or as described at the time information is collected. For example, Swoop may, at the request of a client, ask you for your email address so a client can follow up with you about your responses to a survey. The provision of such information is typically voluntary and at all times participation in a survey is, of course, voluntary.
Individuals may also elect to opt-out at any time from receiving emails from Swoop within ten (10) business days of unsubscribing. Individuals who wish to reverse an earlier unsubscribe option may contact Swoop's Privacy Officer (see contact information below) to change their opt-out status.
Customers and respondents may contact Swoop (see Privacy Contact below) at any time if they feel there is an error in their PII or request deletion thereof. Because Swoop generally receives and retains PII as an agent of its clients, it will usually refer individuals reporting inaccuracies in their PII to the originating source for correction. Subsequent to verifying the identity of a person making a request, Swoop will respond to a request for offline access to PII within 30 days of receiving such request.
We will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you services. If you wish to request that we no longer use your information to provide you services, contact us using the information listed below and we will coordinate with the Swoop client for which the data was collected. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
When requested by legal authorities to disclose PII, Swoop will inform the court of various factors justifying confidentiality and respondent anonymity. However, Swoop may be required by law to disclose personally identifiable information where judicial or other governmental subpoenas, warrants or orders are properly issued or if Swoop reasonably believes that use or disclosure is necessary to protect its rights. Individual unsubscribe options in no way limits Swoop's use, disclosure or distribution of PII to the extent such use, disclosure or distribution is required by law, court order or other valid legal process. Swoop will communicate with the affected client as soon as possible, unless prohibited by law or court order.
If Swoop is involved in a merger, acquisition or sale of all or a portion of its assets, Swoop may transfer your data. In such a circumstance, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any change in ownership or uses of your PII, as well as any choices you may have regarding your PII.
