Your privacy is our top concern. We work hard to earn and keep your trust, so we adhere to the following principles to protect your privacy:
Any sensitive information that you provide will be secured with all industry standard protocols and technology
- What personally identifiable information of yours is collected by Opportunity
- How the information is used.
- With whom the information may be shared.
- How you can access and change your Account information.
- What security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information collected by Opportunity.
- How to contact us.
In order to become an Opportunity user, you must first create an account on this web site. To create an account you are required to login using your email or Facebook account. Once logged in, Opportunity will capture your name, email address, country, region (Metro Area), and current company name and any other information that you input during the signup process. Opportunity will also request that you manually provide a brief summary of your company (i.e. a 'pitch'), and a few ways to describe yourself and/or your business (industry types, skill sets, and more).
Once a user, you may provide additional information to your account including various ways people may contact you including phone, Google+, Skype and more. Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration is entirely optional, but enables you to better promote your business and find new opportunities within Opportunity. It is the choice of the user to include sensitive information in their profile and to make that sensitive information public. Please do not post or add personal data to your profile that you would not want to be publicly available.
The data that you provide we keep until you delete your account. You have the ability to close your account any time you wish or request us to close/delete it for you. We offer users the ability to edit/modify/delete all the data that is in our system. You can ask us to stop using any and all personal data. Additionally, you may request a copy of all your personal data that you have provided us to build your profile.
We operate throughout the world and in some countries user rights are not us protective as the ones we follow or the laws of your country.
We only process data that is lawfully provided consent by you. You may at any time request to withdraw your consent and we will delete all data associated with your account. If you have any questions you many contact us at [email protected] or contact our Data Protection Officer.
Information about your Contacts
In order to invite others to connect with you directly on Opportunity, you will enter their names and email addresses (we also provide a contact upload form for bulk invites). This information will be used by Opportunity to send your invitation to connect on Opportunity. In addition, other users uploading information about you will be associated with your profile when possible.
You may also choose to manually enter or upload data about your contact. All information entered will only be viewable by you and will not be searchable by others in the Opportunity network without your permission.
When uploading contacts via Opportunity Mobile app, a user will have ability to select which users they choose to invite. Opportunity will send out a combination of email/text/notification to those users to join Opportunity.
We store this information (including phone numbers) and use it to help you manage and leverage your contacts in connection with our services.
We also use this information to enhance your experience: identifying your leads that are already connections via LinkedIn, other social platforms or within email communication.
When you send an email to another individual on Opportunity or to join Opportunity, that person may have access to your email address or, for SMS invitations, mobile number because it may be displayed in the communication.
After sending these invitations, we may also remind your invitees of your invitation on your behalf. Your leads may also have access to your email address.
We make other tools available to sync information with Opportunity, and may also develop additional features that allow users to use their account in conjunction with other third-party services.
For example, our mobile application allow you to sync your email and/or contacts with Opportunity.
Another example are software tools that allow you to see our and other public information about the people you email or meet with and leverage our services to help you gain insights and help you prospect new leads.
If you grant Opportunity permission to access your email, they will access and may store some of your email information. Our products that sync with external email services may also temporarily cache message content for performance reasons, in a way that is unreadable by us and our service providers.
You can remove your address book and any other synced information at any time.
Cookies & Log Files
One type of cookie, known as a “persistent” cookie, is set once you've logged in to your Opportunity account. The next time you visit the Opportunity web site, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing user so you will not need to login before using the service. In order to access or change any of your private information (like a credit card number), however, you must log in securely again with your password even if your computer contains your persistent cookie. Additionally, if you log out of the Opportunity site you will need to re-enter your login credentials the next time you visit in order to log in to your account. Another type of cookie, called a “session” cookie, is used to identify a particular visit to the Opportunity site. Session cookies expire after a short time or when you close your web browser.
Due to the communications standards on the Internet, when you visit the Opportunity web site we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave Opportunity. We also receive the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, as well as the name of your ISP. This information is used to analyze overall trends to help us improve the Opportunity service. The linkage between your IP address and your personally identifiable information is never shared with third-parties without your permission or except when required by law.
We may allow other companies (although not presently), called ad networks, to serve advertisements to Opportunity users. Ad networks include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. Opportunity may “target” some ads to users that fit a certain general profile - for example, “web designers looking for accountants in Tampa, FL.” These ads may also be promoted within emails sent to each user. Unless you clear your cookies we may use this data with our advertising customers - which would enable us to provide more relevant data, based on interests, aggregate data to of activity, understand visitor engagement on the site, defend against fraud or other malicious activity, and improve our service.
To deliver these ads properly, Opportunity may include a file, called a web beacon, from these ad networks within pages served by Opportunity so the networks may provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for advertisers as well as to target ads to you while you visit other websites.
Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network's servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.
These general targets may also be used by ad networks to display targeted ads on other websites as a substitute for random, irrelevant ads. You will never see additional ads as a result of being an Opportunity user and Opportunity never provides personally identifiable information to any advertiser nor any third party.
Mobile Device and Location Services
Visiting or leaving our site we gather information regarding where you came from and where you leave to. Additional information may include IP address, proxy server, operating system, web browser and add-ons, device identifiers, ISP, mobile carriers. When using our mobile app, we will ask you to enable GPS location to use the Nearby feature to identify your location.
Children are not eligible to use our service and we ask that minors (under the age of 18) do not submit any personal information to us or use the service.
Opportunity is a lead generation tool designed to bring professionals together in a more intelligent way. The personally identifiable information you choose to provide on this site is used to help you describe yourself and your company to others. Other information, that does not personally identify you as an individual, is collected by Opportunity, Inc. from the site (such as, by way of example, patterns of utilization) and is exclusively owned by Opportunity. This information can be utilized by Opportunity at its sole discretion.
Opportunity may communicate with you through email, direct mail, telephone, mobile phone, IM, desktop and mobile notifications and text messages (SMS). These may include a series of promotional and informative emails regarding new features and services provided by Opportunity as well as notifications to alert you of new business opportunities with other members. Please be aware that you will always receive certain emails from Opportunity related to the proper functioning of your account, such as email notices when another user requests to connect with you. Opportunity may send you promotional information at any time unless you opt out of all communication via account settings.
Information you provide at registration or in your Profile section is also used to customize your experience on the website and app. For example, when you login to your account we may partial information about you and your company on our homepage when people log-in. The intent (obviously) is to provide you with immediate and maximum exposure opportunities.
Additionally, many users upload third-party logos to their profiles. Opportunity neither endorses nor is affiliated with most of these third-party companies. In most cases, Opportunity is not affiliated with these companies. If a company feels the logo placed on a profile is in violation of their trademark guidelines, they should contact the profile owner and/or contact Opportunity directly to have the logo removed.
Sharing Information With Third Parties
Opportunity takes the privacy of our users very seriously. We will only share your personally identifiable with third parties to carry out your instructions and to provide specific services. For instance, we use a credit card processing company to bill users for subscription fees. These third parties do not retain, share, or store any personally identifiable information except to provide these services and are bound by strict confidentiality agreements which limit their use of such information.
Opportunity offers a “public profile” as well as Search Engine Optimization (SEO) features which publish portions of user's profiles, including “name” and “company name”, to the public Internet. Users are given the chance to opt-out of this SEO feature through their Account Settings.
Opportunity will also share portions of your contact information (no email or phone) with other members who we have determined to be a good match. The spirit of our website is to connect people more intelligently and efficiently. Simply put, if you do not wish to have your contact information shared with other users, you should not sign-up for Opportunity.
We may provide aggregated data about the usage of our services to third-parties for such purposes as we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate. We may segment our users by role (i.e. product managers, vice presidents), industry, geographic location, company. If you would like to be excluded from the aggregated research or products based upon aggregated data about our users' activities on the site, please email customer service.
We may need to share your information with law enforcement when deemed necessary. This would be done to protect the community from potentially malicious users.
Partnering with Other Organizations to Offer Combined Services
Opportunity may partner with other online services to give you the combined results of both services. Whenever we offer such combined services it will be your choice to make use of the combined services or not. If you consent then any data provided will be controlled by the other service and used by them at their discretion until deleted or updated.
Communications Between Users
Many emails you initiate through Opportunity an invitation sent to a non-user for instance, will list your name in the header of the message. Emails you initiate may also provide aggregate information about you and your company. Other communications that you initiate through Opportunity, like a request for contact, will list your name as the initiator but will not include your personal contact information. However, your contact information will be shared with another user if both of you have been determined by Opportunity to be a “match”. At which time, an email alert will be sent originating from Opportunity containing various ways in which the user can communicate with you including email, phone, Skype and more.
Opportunity provides the User with a platform on which to establish contact with other users, and only provides those technical applications that allow users to contact one another. With regards to content, Opportunity does not take part in any communication between users. If users enter into agreements with one another over the Opportunity website, Opportunity shall not be a contracting party to these agreements. The users alone are responsible for the execution and/or fulfillment of agreements in which they enter with one another. Opportunity shall not be held liable if users are unable to contact one another over Opportunity websites regarding such agreements. Furthermore, Opportunity shall not be liable for breaches of duty in relation to agreements entered into between users.
Point and Rating System
Opportunity uses a verification / rating system (both public and private) to understand our users AND provide the overall community with an understanding of the quality of the users on the network. You may be awarded credits/badges based upon your status within the system (PRO Member, etc ...) and/or your use of the system. Opportunity may adjust your credit balance or rating, change system credit values or modify the credit and rating system at any time at its discretion. Credits have no monetary value and are not redeemable.
It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information when required by law. We will disclose such information wherein we have a good-faith belief that it is necessary to comply with a court order, ongoing judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on our company or to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
Accessing and Changing Your Account Information
In order to secure your personal information, access to your data (including credit card information) on Opportunity is password-protected. At the present time, we do not have access to any detailed credit card information (unless provided directly over the telephone or at one of our events), as that is hosted entirely through our third party merchant service provider.
