Last Updated: November 5, 2020
When we refer to Style Coalition we mean the subsidiary of Fashion GPS, Inc. DBA Launchmetrics that acts as the Controller of your information.
When we refer to influencers (“Influencers”) we mean Influencers that have submitted an online application for evaluation by Style Coalition and Launchmetrics to be contacted by brands on future projects and are now registered on the Influencers by Style Coalition platform after validation by Style Coalition and Launchmetrics (“Registered Influencers”) and Influencers that were identified on Social Media APIs by Style Coalition and Launchmetrics as potentially interesting for brands because of their level of influence on the topics of fashion, luxury and beauty but did not make the process of registering on the platform (“Crawled Influencers”). The selected profiles are made accessible to brands via a search engine, which can then "invite" them to join our network by registering (they join then the subset of Registered Influencers).
When we refer to users (“Users”) we mean all individuals who are holders of an Influencers by Style Coalition account as Influencers including those users granted access to the Services as Agent of the Influencer.
Updates in this version of the User Policy reflect changes in data protection law. In addition, we have worked to make the User Policy clearer and more understandable. To find more quickly the information you are looking for, please look at our table of contents

IP Address Information and Other Information Collected Automatically
We automatically receive and record information from your web browser when you interact with the Site, including your IP address and cookie information but also your browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. Generally, the Site automatically collects usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to the Site. We may use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, but not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us and third parties authorized by us to figure out how often individuals use parts of the Site so that we can analyze and improve them.
As with most websites and technology services delivered over the Internet, our servers automatically collect information when you access or use our Site or Services and record it in log files. This log data may include the Internet Protocol (IP) address, the address of the web page visited before using the Site or Services, browser type and settings, the date and time the Services were used, information about browser configuration and plugins, language preferences and cookie data.
We collect log information: payment logs (payment processes are processed by a third party), campaign logs (all activities for campaigns in which you participated) and social logs (when you link your social media account to your Influencers Account) for different reasons like:
- Detecting or preventing fraud, and unauthorised access;
- Help users and address their needs while using the platform;
- Keep improving our product in terms of features scope and security needs.
We collect statistical information about how registered users, collectively, use the Services (“Aggregate Information”). Some of this information is derived from Personal Information. This statistical information is not Personal Information and cannot be tied back to you, your Account or your web browser, unless you give us the explicit agreement to do so.
If you are approved as an Influencer, Style Coalition and Launchmetrics reserve the right to analyze data and metrics from your social networking sites and services and assign you a rating measuring your virtual social influence. Your rating may (without limitation) be made available to Advertisers in effort to provide them with an additional tool to utilize when planning their marketing initiatives utilizing Influencer services, and may be included in your Profile or in Advertiser’s search results.

Different Launchmetrics entities provide the Services in different parts of the world. Data protection laws in certain jurisdictions differentiate between the “controller” and “processor” of information.
User Profile Information:
Certain portions of your Profile (e.g., you name, image, subject categories, expertise, social network and blog stats) will be viewable by a premium network of Fashion, Luxury and Cosmetics brands and PR Agencies (the “Advertisers”) which are approved by Style Coalition and Launchmetrics to use the Influencers platform.

Some of your activity on and through the Services is public by default. This may include, but is not limited to, content you have posted publicly on the Site or otherwise through the Services. Registered Users may have some of this information associated with their Accounts. Please also remember that if you choose to provide Personal Information using certain network features of the Services, then that information is governed by the privacy settings of those particular features and may be available to others. Individuals reading such information may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. We therefore urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in content that you create or information that you submit through the Services.
IP Address Information:
We share Aggregate Information with our partners, service providers and other persons with whom we conduct business. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners can understand how and how often people use our Services and their services or websites, which facilitates improving both their services and how our Services interface with them. In addition, these third parties may share with us non-private, aggregated or otherwise non Personal Information about you that they have independently developed or acquired.
Connection of your Account with Third Party Websites:
You are able to connect your Influencers by Style Coalition account to third party accounts.
As such you give us permission to access your information in other services. For example, you may link your Facebook or Twitter account to Style Coalition, which allows us to obtain information from those accounts (like your follower count or content analytics). The information we get from those services often depends on your settings or their privacy policies, so be sure to check what those are.
When you connect your Influencers by Style Coalition Account to your Third Party Account, some information about you may be released to others (in accordance with your privacy settings on those third party sites). If you do want information about you, including your Personal Data, to be shared in this manner, do not use this feature.

Information Shared with Third Parties:
Style Coalition and Launchmetrics may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your Personal data (such as your email, name, address, telephone number) is usually not transferred to the third party. Nevertheless, such data could be shared on request of an Advertiser for campaign purposes.
Style Coalition and Launchmetrics may share data with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Style Coalition and Launchmetrics, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Information Shared with Our Agents:

You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal Information with our Agents.
Information Disclosed Pursuant to Business Transfers:
In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, User information is typically one of the transferred business assets. Moreover, if we, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, User information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.
