YOUR ACTIVITIES | acting as a host we have to handle the information you choose to exchange, collect the Content you choose to upload as well as check the information around your Purchases, Transactions and Orders so as to ensure we are providing you with the best possible service
Access Points; information about your access devices such as operating systems, hardware versions, device identifiers, GPS locations, ISP, browser type, language, time zone, IP address and the like may be logged. Firstly these are basic details exchanged between devices and servers. Secondly, to use Discover and the Global Map’s your GPS function is essential. Thirdly, in order to protect your Profile as well as improve services such as translations we may broadly review similar data.
Connections; to allow you to interact on the Biosphere and construct your tailored Profile we also have to record some details around those you choose to Follow, connect with or for example other’s Content you may save in your Favorites, share or use as references.
Content; if you include this, information collected may encompass metadata on the Content itself such as the location and timing it was recorded. Please know that these may automatically be attached by your devices
Collaborations; as recorded on formalized documentation represented through Purchases or Transactions or Orders, we identify and confirm Collaborating Member’s so as to enact the financial Terms and conditions as you have set. Information around your Payment and Payout channels, methods and preferences are further recorded by TOF so as to facilitate Purchases, Transactions and Orders as you may instruct. These may include your credit card number(s), account authentication information and the like. However TOF is not involved with nor responsible for any Real World shipping, transportation and or delivery of physical items or products. Outside of Payment and Payout channel identification and authorization verification, any delivery address or similar information is neither stored nor requested by TOF.
Links; the Biosphere implements some API’s. For example geographical specifications using Google Maps as well as metrics and or data imports for Content from your Instagram account.
PRIVACY | documentation checks are processed outside the Biosphere. No Personally Identifiable Information such as identification documents nor financial details are stored or shared by us via the Biosphere. Unless independently blocked through Profile settings, portions of Member’s publicly displayed accounts including for example anonymous display names with biographies or introductions alongside self-selected Content, could be visible to other Members and or shared by other Members to through alternate channels. Content which you freely enter or upload through as a participating Member, Map pins, For Sale and or generated Open Commissions are the only visible data to un-blocked Community Members
COMMUNICATIONS | TOF does not and cannot monitor private communications nor Collaborations’ Completion. Communications, requests, Transactions and Orders are kept strictly confidential between TOF and the individual Purchasing Member. Particularly in the case of Copyright Purchases, media uploads are logged with specified Content being internally Registered through TOF as belonging to an Activated Member’s Profile. Activity and exchanged Content pertaining to Confirmed Collaborations are temporarily and securely stored on the Collaborating Members Profile’s. Such Activity remains available for review in cases of Member-initiated Dispute resolution and available until Completion or until the Collaboration is closed by the Collaborating Member’s. Confirmed Collaboration Purchases are necessarily logged with associated processing information attached for future Verification and available for download by either Collaborating Member throughout. The particulars of any agreement(s) reached including responsibilities as specified or outlined therein are entirely the private responsibilities of the Collaborating Members
COLLABORATIONS | all direct communications exchanged including Content as well as Contracts are private and exclusively for and between Collaborating Members at their sole discretion
PROFILES | creating a private Member account requires one to link a name, email address, date of birth as well as set a password and or Touch ID on the Biosphere
PURCHASING | communication between Members only commences following confirmed eligibility for Purchase(s) as well as declared adherence to Terms of a selected Provider. Purchasing Members are therefore required to Activate their account before discussing any potential Collaboration. So as to process future Purchase orders accordingly, the Platform will prompt a Member to privately confirm limited financial information alongside identification confirmation. This may include, for example, a secure ownership check of one government issued ID document alongside registration of an active credit card
MAPS | you choose who, what and where. After pinned to the Global Map entries such as Open Commissions, open Content and the like may be visible and can be shared by non-blocked Members. Metrics such as view counts of Open Collaborations, starred Content, open postings and similar Platform-wide viewership is anonymously logged and visible to all Members. Activated Members’ privately and directly exchange details pertaining to Completion requirements. Such exchanges are never shared nor accessible except to the relevant Collaborating Members
CALENDARS | for your convenience syncing of entries from existing calendars, such as iCal, is possible. If you decide to synchronize your calendar entries then – of course – this information will be entered into your personal Platform calendar including descriptions and GPS positioning. Once a Member uploads their calendar entries to their Personal Map these pins become viewable to un-blocked Members
LEGALLY | TOF offers de-centralized, legally admissible Verification alongside financial security for Payment transactions for independently and privately generated Collaborations and or Content registration. It is possible that sometime in the future TOF may be requested to provide information to government agencies or the like. At all times, within legally permissible limits, TOF WILL AGGRESSIVELY REFUSE TO COMPLY WITH SUCH REQUESTS. Should any details, statistics and or usage information be requested by an outside agency TOF will, again operating within the confines of the law, attempt to notify all Members of such requests prior to forced adherence. In cases of Evidenced Activity that grossly violates any Terms and or in any way may place another Member in harm’s way TOF reserves the right to at its sole discretion liaise with and submit personal information to third parties solely in relation to enable the immediate ceasing and or official addressing of any such violation(s)
USAGE | some information regarding Platform interactions such as commonly used hashtags or searches may be saved for you so as to provide quick recall during future use. You manually set your location information, however navigation requires real-time updates including GPS positioning. To ensure security, log data such as the device(s) used and time accessed may also be collected. Pixels, mobile identifiers and cookies may be used in order to provide usage information and correct API integration to the Platform. Google Maps API is integrated to the Platform, usage of this feature is therefore subject to associated Terms and Privacy policies. At times TOF may be required to disclose some information to service platforms so as to enable the full use of Platform functionality including for example, Payment processors and hosting services. Payment and Purchase transaction times, amounts and payout delivery accounts are recorded off the Platform for your security. For fraud detection any other background information or personal information reviewed essentially pertains authorization and Profile access security. Reviews and checks are conducted by TOF outside of the Platform to safeguard Member privacy
AGGREGATE |we may also share aggregated information (usage data that is combined together so it no longer identifies or references an individual Member), and non-personally identifiable information for industry and market analysis, demographic research or other business purposes
WHY? | some personal information may be needed so that TOF can verify Purchases, Payments and deposits into Member-selected destinations and or in attempts to prevent any harmful activity. Such information is kept entirely confidential and stored by TOF outside of the Platform
