Privacy Policy

Welcome! Thanks for visiting Girls’ Night In. We’re updating our Privacy Policy as of May 25, 2018. We’ve updated our Policy to reflect changes in data privacy laws and added details about how to manage the information you share with us.

Who We Are

Girls’ Night In is an internet company that provides services that help people recharge and connect more meaningfully. Right now we do this with an email newsletter product, website content, online store, and network of events around the globe. Our mission is to help women relax, recharge, and connect more meaningfully in a disconnected age.

If you’d like to get in touch with us about our services or about anything written in our Privacy Policy, you can reach us at hello@girlsnightin.co.

Why We Collect and Use Your Information

We use your information for a couple of purposes:

We process personal data because this is necessary for the performance of the contract between you and us, for our compliance with our legal obligations and for the purpose of our legitimate interests. In particular, our legitimate interests are our commercial company interest (e.g. to improve our products and services), our interest to make use of direct marketing, our interest to prevent fraud and our interest to report possible criminal acts or threats to competent authorities. Some of the personal data that we process is required for us to meet our legal obligations, for example we cannot create an account for you if you choose not to share your personal data with us.

What Types of Information Do We Collect and Receive and How?

We collect information in the following ways:

We may collect other types of personal data if required under applicable law or if necessary for the purposes listed above. We will then inform you and ensure that there is a valid legal basis for doing so.

You may decline to provide us with your information and ask that your information be removed. However, this will limit your ability to register for an account or use our Services. For example, if you decline, you may not receive our email newsletter. You may review, change or remove your information through your account settings.

We collect certain personal data by using cookies, including similar technologies such as local storage when you visit the website.

Cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive or mobile device when you visit certain websites. Cookies hold information that may be accessible by the party that places the cookie, which is either the website itself (first-party cookie) or a third party (third-party cookies). You do have control over cookies, and can refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting on your browser. Most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable or delete existing cookies. Please note, however, that by not accepting or deleting the use of cookies, you may not be able to use the website and our Services.

On the website, we use cookies for the following purposes:

How Do We Protect Your Data and Who Else Receives Your Information?

First and foremost, we make sure to encrypt and pseudonimze any personally identifiable information so that it’s not seen by the public.

In some cases, we may share basic information like your first name, last name initial, and home state with the public. For example, if we announce you as the winner of a giveaway in our newsletter, we may write “Congratulations to Jane D. (KS) on winning our giveaway!”. In these instances, we will ask you for consent to display this information. We may share your social media handle(s) in our communications if you have meaningfully interacted with us or our Services. For example, if you win a giveaway on Instagram, we may write, “Congratulations to @janedoe on winning our giveaway!” We do not ask for explicit consent to display this type of information as you are interacting in a public forum with us and other users of the service, using a public profile name.

We may also share certain communications you send to us (for example, an email message or comment about how much you liked the newsletter). We typically scrub these communications of any personally identifiable information such as your email address or full name.

The following data will not be publicly displayed or revealed to other users, unless you grant us explicit consent:

In some instances, we may also share your information to the following parties and for the following reasons:

We do not sell, rent or trade your personal information.

You have a right to a copy of the information we have about you. Contact us at hello@girlsnightin.co for more information. You can modify or delete certain information associated with your account (such as your name, mailing address, etc.) from your account settings. A link to your account settings can be found at the bottom of every email we send you.

Data Retention

We retain your data for the shortest amount necessary to provide you with our Services. Typically, we will retain most of the personal data for the duration of your use of the website and Services. Note that even after the deletion of your account, we still retain information about your past activity with the email newsletter, but your personal information will be non-identifiable.

How We Work With Third-Parties

As noted above, we may share your information with certain trusted third-party services and brand partners (example: MailChimp who helps us deliver the newsletters, or when we partner with payment processors, or use Google Analytics to help us understand how our site is being used and how to attract more customers). When we share data with third-party services that support our delivery of the our Services, we require that they use your information only for the purposes we’ve authorized, and that they protect your personal information at least to the same standards we do. We do not release or sell private and personally identifiable information. For example, we may release statistics on the geographical makeup of our audience, but we do not release the names and other information of who lives where — you will remain anonymous.

Data Transfer

Because Girls’ Night In is a US-based company, your information will be collected and processed in the United States. The United States has its own laws governing data protection and government access to information. The rules that protect your personal information under United States law may be different than in your home country. If you choose to use the Services, you need to agree to our Terms of Use, which set out the contract between Girls’ Night In and its users.

Data transfers outside the EEA

We may transfer the personal data we obtain to third parties in countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). The laws in those countries may not offer an adequate level of data protection. In particular, personal data may be transferred to the United States.

When we transfer your personal data outside the EEA, we will protect your personal data as described in this Privacy Statement and in accordance with applicable law, such as by entering into the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for the transfer of personal data to a processor located outside of the European Union.

Your Rights

Users residing in certain countries, including the EU, are afforded certain rights regarding their personal information. Except where an exception or exemption applies, these rights include the ability to access, correct, and request deletion of your personal information. While these rights are not applicable globally, all users can manage their personal information, as further described below, in their account settings. A link to your account settings can be found at the bottom of every email we send you.

Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies.
